Cost of Following Christ

Just out of curiosity, what is the most expensive thing you’ve ever purchased?  Was it a house?  Car?  Boat?  What did it cost you?  Was it worth it?  Many of us spend our lives in the pursuit of things.  We work really hard in the hopes that our work will afford us things like a...

Prayer & Fasting

Let us begin with a prayer.  “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver...

Judging Others

So according to scripture everyday you worry was a day that you were told not to. Fear and... Continue Reading →

In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he... Continue Reading →

Giving to the Needy

Have you ever been to Chick-fil-A? Probably a dumb question. A few years ago, I lived in a town in Texas called Forney. It’s a small-ish town, about 30 minutes east of Dallas. The Chick-fil-A there was probably the place I ate the most in the year and a half that I lived there. One... Continue Reading →

Revenge: A Star Wars Story

I know what you’re thinking. Why on earth would someone write a biblical message on the Sermon On The Mount as a Star Wars story?  If you’re familiar at all with the Star Wars saga, you know there are many different themes in the films, and one of them is revenge.  Now, I promise not...
