Hurricane Prep Can Be Dominion Too

I wasn’t planning on preparing for a hurricane this week.

Christian Philosopher, Rene Girard, on What’s Wrong With Your Desires

I’ve been reading from Christian philosopher Rene Girard.

Are You Bringing the Truth to Bear on Your Calling?

My recent post was about ‘understanding the times.’

In the post I noted… just as the sons of Issachar were able to understand their times, so must we understand our own.

I also made the point that understanding the times … Read More

The Key to Understanding Our Times

The Bible tells us the sons of Issachar were men who:

1) understood the times, and…

2) knew what to do.

We need the ability to do the same… if we’re to faithfully advance the kingdom in our own day.

“Everybody Wants to Rule the World”

What the Puritans Got Right

The Puritans actually got quite a few things right.

But let’s talk about just one of them:

Overcoming the Chaos

We sure live in chaotic times, don’t we?

“My Kingdom is Not of this World”: What it Doesn’t Mean

When Jesus stood before Pilate, He told him:

“My kingdom is not of this world…” (Jn.18:36).

Many today take this to mean that Christ’s kingdom is entirely spiritual… and therefore it’s otherworldly.

But that’s not what Jesus was saying.

Jesus … Read More

Is Softness Holding You Back?

Whenever I leave the house I grab a book…

That way if I get stuck waiting somewhere I can redeem the time by reading.

The book I grabbed this morning happened to have a description of the Pilgrim’s voyage on … Read More

American Eclipse, Is God Trying to Tell Us Something?

As I write there’s a lot of buzz about the solar eclipse about to occur — which in some areas of the country will be a total eclipse.

Why Your Dominion Efforts Require Prayer

This may be obvious to you…

…but it bears repeating… lest we forget…

Fulfilling the dominion mandate is NOT a natural activity — it’s a spiritual one.

This has been true ever since God put Adam and Eve in … Read More

Is It Really “All About the Narrative?”

You don’t have to observe much politics these days to realize:

“It’s all about the narrative.”

That is… it’s all about politicians (or parties, or activist groups) telling a story that furthers “their agenda.”

Watching this play out can be … Read More

The Father’s Ordinary Discipline

What do you think of when you hear of a father disciplining his child?

… Perhaps using a paddle or wood spoon with a few swats to the backside?

That’s surely a form of discipline.

But more ordinary, everyday discipline … Read More

Is Misunderstanding Holiness Keeping You From Changing the World?

Pursuing holiness is a good thing.

Necessary too… because without it no one can see the Lord (Heb.12:14).

But confusion about the meaning of holiness can keep us from engaging the world as God calls us to.

How so?

With … Read More

Transgenders Aren’t the Only Ones Who Need to Trust God About Who He Made Them to Be

The other day I saw Pastor John MacArthur answer a young woman who asked him how she should relate to her sister… who she said was “transgender.”

Are You Guarding Your Garden?

Don’t tell my wife… but I found a snake in the house.

So… like a good … Read More

Is Too Much Consuming Keeping You From Producing?

There’s something I’ve been pondering lately:

It’s sure a whole lot easier to spend your time consuming rather than producing.

Think about it…

Eating… a consumption oriented activity… comes easily, and is pleasurable.

While fixing the backyard fence… a … Read More

Are You Your Own Worst Enemy? Read Proverbs

For a number of years I read a chapter of Proverbs every day.

I loved the practice but stopped because I felt like it was becoming stale.

Want More Dominion? Don’t Grab Every Opportunity That Comes Along

There’s a lot to be learned just by watching how Jesus handled things.

More on “Follow Your Passion”

In it I pointed out that the familiar slogan ‘follow your passion’ is not great advice.
