"And now, by God's grace, I shall become myself." (Kierkegaard)


  • Hey So You Know Jesus Made All This Stuff, Right?


    The truth of Jesus as Creator has a lot of practical importance! What practical importance, you ask? Well, for starters, that sense of awe and wonder and joy you feel at the creation? Yeah, that’s a totally correct intuition. And that sense you have that beauty, goodness, and truth matter? Same. And that sense that […]

  • The firstborn of many


    Colossians 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. The life of Jesus in eternity past is deeply significant in understanding the nature of the relationship between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And the relationship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is deeply significant for understanding the nature of […]

  • A Song To A Way Huge Jesus

    16/02/2020 Sometimes we can lose sight of Reality and get so focused on threats and problems that we live in fear or self-directed projects (spiritual or otherwise) designed to stave off fear. Colossians 1:15ff are actually lyrics to a very early Christian worship song, entirely about Jesus. Jesus existing before everything. Jesus being the agent […]

  • Show Us the Father


    There is a story about God in the world that is so common that many of us don’t realize just how profoundly untrue it is. It asks a lot of questions like, “Where is God? Is he there? Where was he when that happened? Is he involved? Does he care?” In relationship to God, it […]

  • Redemption Now


    Sometimes people have thought about redemption as God paying off the devil, like a good man who, in mercy, pays off the evil gang of thugs who have taken over the neighborhood. “Here you take my son, and you give me back these folk. Do we have a deal?” But is that what the cross […]

  • Joy, Competence, Inheritance, Light (Col 1:12)


    Joy and happiness are often described by believers are being entirely different realities, but sometimes I think we are simply trying to avoid admitting that we lack true joy. True joy will be a fruit of the Holy Spirit, not a rule to keep, but a byproduct of a life lived abiding in Christ. The […]

  • Endurance and Patience (Colossians 1:11)


    It’s been too long since I got to preach! Back at it again, this time we spent some time in Col 1:11, and talked about the difference between endurance, which is our capacity or stamina to keep going, and patience, which is the inner attitude that is willing to pay the pain price and doesn’t […]

  • We Always Pray (Colossians Part 2)


    3 We always pray for you, and we give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 4 For we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all of God’s people, 5 which come from your confident hope of what God has reserved for you in heaven. You have had this expectation ever […]

  • Grace and Peace (Colossians Part 1)


    This letter is from Paul, chosen by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus, and from our brother Timothy. We are writing to God’s holy people in the city of Colosse, who are faithful brothers and sisters in Christ. May God our Father give you grace and peace. (Colossians 1:1-2)

  • Seeds


    11 Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation—every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And that is what happened. 12 The land produced vegetation—all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds produced plants […]

  • How the gospel works…or doesn’t


    The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith. (1 Tim 1:5)

  • Enemies To Test Them


    Check your locus of control:

  • Why would I want to live a holy life?


    2 Tim 1:9 – God saved us and called us to a holy life… What is holiness? What is a holy life? Why would anyone want a holy life? How would a person get a holy life? 1. What is holiness? Ontological – only God is holy Consecration – set apart for sacred use Moral […]

  • A Bigger Jesus


    In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col 2:3).

  • Called In Two Directions (Individuation and Connection)

    02/06/2019 God is always calling us in two directions: away from others to become the distinct person we’re created to be, and toward others to serve them in love. We’re always being separated from and sent to. Individuated, and connected. This is a communion mystery of being broken and given…The goal of this breaking is […]
