You Have Been Called for This Purpose

You Have Been Called for This Purpose

As I read 1st Peter, I struggle a little with the idea of suffering and blessing being compatible.  Those two principles don’t seem to go together at first glance.  But we certainly see it in the suffering and blessing in the life of Christ.

A Perfect Plan

A Perfect Plan

We are entering the season where we celebrate the fulfillment of God’s plan as He came Himself to be born as a Human Being, to live a life without sin, to show us what God is like as a person in relationship with others, and to take upon Himself all the sin of all mankind.

As We Wait

As We Wait

Several weeks ago, I addressed the need for us to be waiting eagerly and confidently for Christ’s return.  I also left you with a question: “What should we be doing as we wait?”  Much of the New Testament scripture addresses just that question as these new believers were waiting also.

Waiting

Waiting

It is important that we, like the disciples, not be confused about what will happen next.  It is important that we eagerly and confidently wait for Him.

Living in the Kingdom Light

Living in the Kingdom Light

Even though I live here on earth, inhabited and influenced by Satan and his followers and surrounded by those who do not yet know God through Christ, I am at the same time living in a different reality because I am also in the Kingdom that Jesus established when He came.  That fact is hard to comprehend, but it may not be so difficult to measure.

Reading Scripture with Lifted Eyes: Psalm 17

Reading Scripture with Lifted Eyes: Psalm 17

Following on last week’s theme of “reading Scripture with lifted eyes” to see Christ, I want to attempt to lift our gaze to Christ through Psalm 17. On Monday, during my devotions, I was especially moved by this psalm. Although I had read it numerous times, I had never read it as I did that morning, as a psalm of resurrection. Then, on Tuesday, I learned that my great uncle had died. I reflected on our last conversation, in which he had confessed a new-found openness to the Lord and told me that he had begun to pray regularly. I shared the gospel with him and trust that our merciful God saved my uncle from eternal death. In the wake of my uncle’s physical death, the resurrection psalm I had read the previous day became even more precious to me. But how is Psalm 17 a psalm of resurrection?

Reading Scripture with Lifted Eyes: Genesis 22

Reading Scripture with Lifted Eyes: Genesis 22

On New Year’s Day, I encouraged us to earnestly seek Christ in the Scriptures and thereby behold the glory of God. Last week, our Elder Jeff McArthur passionately expounded the beauty of Christ’s person, focusing on Christ’s humility. Now, I want to help us see Jesus in Genesis 22.

Right-Side-Up Christianity

Right-Side-Up Christianity

After a little over a year and a half of full-time ministry and an examination of my own heart, I have become convinced that there are two fundamental, rival conceptions of the Christian faith. Upside-down Christianity considers the world and its comforts to be supremely desirable. God exists to assist in the procurement of comforts and advantage. This conception of the faith frequently allures us and draws us away from Christ. On the other hand, right-side-up Christianity considers the world and its comforts to be subservient and secondary to God, by whom and for whom they exist. This conception of the faith is arduous but drives us toward Christ.

You Become What You Look At

You Become What You Look At

Pastor Jay has asked me to take the reins of “Four What It’s Worth” while he rests this January. I’m not sure what will appear in this column in the coming weeks – I’m still discerning what will be most helpful – but I want to use this entry to expand on the first application point from my New Year’s Day sermon: “seeing God’s glory effects transformation.”

From Broken Vessels to Rich Treasures

From Broken Vessels to Rich Treasures

I recently was privileged to take a 9-day trip to Israel with several other young adults from the broader Christian community at UNC. While learning about Israel’s history and current political divides, my friends and I had the opportunity of a lifetime to visit ancient Biblical sites that are significant to Jesus, Jewish people before the incarnation, as well as the early church after His resurrection.

When Adults Act Like Children

When Adults Act Like Children

For the past two weeks, I have been edified by teachings on Luke 4:14-30. In both the youth ministry two Sundays ago, and in the main service only a few days ago, I have heard God’s children speak boldly of Jesus’ ministry. I endeavor now to share how this scripture relates to a realization I have had about the way in which we are (and can be) like children with regards to the Lord.

Remembering Brent Clark

Remembering Brent Clark

I wrote this originally as a letter to our CHBC staff, but then realized this letter also could provide the general CHBC family some context to Brent Clark and his influence on our church for almost a decade between 2001-2010 when he served first as our Church Administrator and later as our Pastor for Administration.

Loving Our Neighbors with Thanksgiving Meals

Loving Our Neighbors with Thanksgiving Meals

This weekend we were blessed to serve meals to our community in a collaboration with CHBC and CHBC en Español. Dozens of you (both from CHBC and “en espanol”) volunteered to make this happen by making, delivering, packaging, and distributing a LOT of home-cooked food for those that needed it this season. In the end, we served approximately 150 people via drive-thru at the church this Sunday afternoon.
