Easter is over, but in case you were wondering . . .

That tomb is still empty,

and Jesus still lives.

And that’s the only hope for you and me and this crazy world that we live in.

Young Levi & Lia Mullen retell the good news of the Gospel — the Easter story — and it’s never been cuter.

I’ve never actually thought of the Gospel as cute until I heard Levi and Lia share it.

They’re irresistible as they share the powerful truth of the Gospel. [Read more…]

I know a place where I found peace.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27

I know a place where I found rest. 

Be still and know that I am God. ~ Psalm 46:10

I know a place where I found mercy.

The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
~ Lamentations 3:22-23

Guilty but free!

Running wild and loving it! 

I’m as guilty as fire is hot, but I’m not getting burned.

I’m running wild and free like a child set loose in Disney World waving my pass that gets me to the front of the line.

It really is that great.

Living over 50 years has allowed me to rack up more than a few sins.

Some are quite serious, but I don’t want to talk about them. God’s not remembering them against me. Why should I pull them back up?

I can’t even begin to express the freedom I feel from being delivered from the crushing weight of those gnarly sins.

It’s like I’ve been given spiritual immunity. That’s way better than diplomatic immunity.

No one can get more free than me. You can get as free as me, but not more free. 

In fact, right now if I were to reach out and pop you in the nose, I wouldn’t be held guilty by God. [Read more…]

I’m a writer. Words almost pour out of my fingertips.

Sometimes they pour out blessings. Sometimes they pour out like my garden hose, which is currently broken. Riddled with leaks, it sprays a mess of water everywhere.

Words can spray out of my mouth or off my fingertips onto the page and create a muddy mess. But what if my words actually saved a life.

For the word of the cross
is foolishness to those who are perishing,
but to us who are being saved
it is the power of God.

(I Corinthians 1:18, NASB)

We never really know what a difference our words can make, but the Word of God never fails. It didn’t fail me. In fact, it saved my life.

Sidewalk Prophets’s song “Save My Life” convicted, challenged, and encouraged me in the power of words to save a life. Listen and you’ll be encouraged, too. [Read more…]
