Why be a Witness

Anyone who’s ever spent time talking with kids has likely noticed a central theme in those conversations. No matter if you’re telling them to eat their vegetables or to not pull on the dog’s tail, there’s one question it always seems to come back to: the question of why. And most times, it’ll be a series of why? after why? until you run out of answers and defer to, “That’s just the way it is.”

You Are What You Eat

So, don’t distance yourself from Revelation, or any book of the Bible for that matter, simply because its uncomfortable, bittersweet, or hard to read at times. Take in Scripture. Trust that God gave us these books for a reason. Absorb the truths. Let them change you.

Don’t Skip Good Friday (Or This April)

If I’m honest, there’s a part of me that wants to skip Good Friday. Not in a theological sense but in an experiential sense. Commemorating Good Friday is painful.

Understanding the Rapture

But we’re not used to waiting like this. Right now, we’re waiting to see when churches will meet again, what quarantine decisions our politicians will make next, and much, much more. And in some ways, we’re not even sure what we’re waiting for. We’re just waiting for the next surprise—whatever that may be.

God on His Throne

What do the words “uncertain” and “unprecedented” have in common? Well, aside from being two of the most frequently used words these days, they both begin with the prefix “un” which means “not.” And right now, the world is longing for anything that doesn’t need that prefix in front of those two words.

Living Together

Living Together

Living together Prior to the 1970s it was rare for an unmarried man and woman to live together. Today it is much more common, accepted as an important “next step” for couples before committing to marriage.

A Reversed Reputation

It’s uncomfortable to realize that some of the stars we see at night may already be dead. While this isn’t the happiest thought in the world, it is possible. Light travels at a speed of 186,282 miles per second—which is just faster than some people drive here in Memphis.
