Here Da Choice. Romans 2.5-16

Here Da Choices…

When my Dylan was three years old, he was already analyzing situations. If he was trying to get his older brother or sister to play with him, he would say, “Here da choices,” holding open his little hands to them, “play trains, legos, or…

Kindness -> Repentance? Romans 2.1-4

Stepping into Romans chapter two, we see two themes emerge –judgment and God’s kindness. On judgment, Paul warns us ‘don’t!’ Because in reality, folks who are given to judging others and their sin, are usually guilty of the same, which makes them…

Why Romans??

Why Romans? Just before we launch into the second chapter of Romans …besides being the book written after 1 and 2 Corinthians, and where we find ourselves in our travels with Paul--why wade through…

Take a breath . . .

Take a breath . . .

Yesterday’s Morning Briefing “Rudderless” was a little heavy, and frankly, we will have a lot of heavy as we dig deeper into Romans . . . but I have been

moved by the heart of some of my friends worldwide. One

friend, Armand, from Cameroon (Africa) asked me today ‘how to stay close

to the Lord’, and I know…

Rudderless. Romans 1.28-32

Fifteen years old, handsome, talented, smart as a whip, and committed to God—he was every mother’s dream son. He was involved in a before-school accountability group, kept his way pure by reading and studying his Bible, and had position in the…

Can't get over it. Romans 1.26-27

So high, you can’t get over it … so wide, you can’t get around it, so low, you can’t get under it … you must come in at the door

Click on the following, and treat yourself to a minute or two:…

The Slippery Slope. Romans 1.24-28

The theme of Romans is the righteousness of God, but in order to realize the gift of salvation, man must first realize his moral state--he is a sinner. He is a sinner in need of grace and redemption. As he starts, Paul points his finger at the sin of the…

Honor God, or go your own way. Romans 1.21-23

Honor God, or Go your own way. Romans 1.21-23

Zoom out for a minute with me . . . let’s take a look at where we find ourselves in Scripture. Paul has turned his attention toward the Christians in Rome. In his opening remarks, he comprehensively covers the nature of who Christ is, and what he has done. He makes it clear it is his life’s aim…

The written evidence.

Videotapes, digital photography, and scrapbooks chronicle every nuance

of a proud parent’s bundle of joy. Text messages of my friend’s new

puppy have been coming to my cell phone--each one a testament of how

cute and tiny she is! In case you haven’t noticed, we are a very visual

people, with technology only speeding up our viewing pleasure.

Unfortunately,



we do not have any pictures of God.



When Jesus spoke the world into existence, no one captured… Continue

What if God was one of us?

“What if God was one of us… Just a stranger on the bus, trying to make his way home” . . . Joan Osborne crooned.



The fact is, Joan . . . he was.



Take another look at Paul’s writing to the Roman Christians on the existence

of God-- “They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious

to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the

earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his

invisible qualities—his eternal… Continue

Does God Exist? Romans 1.18-20

What if this God thing is all a big hoax?

So many vitriolic atheists spew THERE IS NO GOD ... could they be right?

Maybe the notion of God is simply born of wishful thinking . . .

How do we know? Can the truth be known?

Let me stop right here and ask you: How do you know that God is real?

Well, how do you??? Think for a moment. Whether you are reading this with a

sari pulled over the screen, so no one can see … or you are in a remote

part of Taiwan … or in a safe… Continue

I am not ashamed of the gospel, are you? Romans 1.16-17

A special interview with Paul of Tarsus, conducted by Antony Pucci of the Times. Dateline: Florence, Italy



Antony: Paul, I read a quote of yours the other day, in which you said, and I

quote: ‘I am not ashamed of the gospel.’ Were those your words?



Paul: Yes, that is precisely what I said.



Antony: Isn’t that an unusual remark to make?



Paul: No, not at all…most of the popular Roman and greater Italian culture

scoff at the gospel of Jesus Christ, at… Continue

What intimidates you?

Honestly, not too much intimidates me. I am not scared to go into

sketchy situations. I am not nervous about meeting new people;

actually, I rather like it. I do not mind walking into a roomful of

strangers. I am not intimidated by meeting dignitaries, movie stars, or

officials. (Hmmm… I think the person I have most enjoyed meeting was

Lee Strobel. He is a hero of mine, and the only autograph I own and

truly value. It is in the back of my little Bible.) That said,… Continue

One bite at a time.

One bite at a time.



The Word of God is invaluable for us



to understand God, the world, and our place in it.



Why? Because



All Scripture is inspired by God and is



useful to teach us what is true and



to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.



It corrects us when we are wrong and



teaches us to do what is right.



God uses it to prepare and



equip his people to do every good work.*



God uses… Continue

I LOVE THEE.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.



I love thee to the depth and breadth and height



My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight



For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.



I love thee to the level of everyday's



Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.



I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;



I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.



I love thee with a passion put to use



In my old griefs, and with my… Continue

Change your world . . . pray

When I first read it, I thought it was revolutionary—actually, it was for me. There was a buzz around the little gift-sized book that sold millions of copies. Simply titled what it was: The Prayer of…
