B.O.L.D. Holiness

What do you think of when you hear the word, “holiness”? Do you picture angels with harps? Do you have a vague image of Old Testament priests in the Temple? Do you think, “Holiness is for Super Saints like Mother Theresa and Billy Graham…” Do you groan inwardly and think, “Holiness Again? Time to tune out…” Does hearing the word “holiness” make you feel a little guilty? Maybe you find yourself thinking, “I’ve tried but [...]

Living in the Forgiveness of Christ

Two weeks ago, I shared with you about Living in the Freedom of Christ. Last week we focused on Living in the Grace of Christ. This week, I want to share with you about Living in the Forgiveness of Christ. These three truths are closely intertwined, but, in my experience, forgiveness is the key to experiencing what it really means to live in the freedom and the grace of Christ. If you recall, I promised [...]

Living in the Grace of Christ

One of my favorite passages in the Bible appears in the book of Exodus. I imagine you have heard the story. Moses had spent many days upon the top of Mount Sinai in the presence of God, receiving from Him various instructions, including the ten commandments. But the people waiting below, became restless and impatient. They compelled Aaron to make for them a golden calf to worship, such as they had once had in Egypt. [...]

Living in the Freedom of Christ

Early one morning, the scribes and Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery to test Jesus, hoping to find grounds to accuse Him.

A little while later, Jesus proclaimed, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in [...]

No Gumby God

I have a friend who loves puns and word plays (you know who you are!) Sometimes his humor makes you groan, but sometimes he hits it right on the mark. And sometimes, his remarks are as insightful as they are humorous. One of his favorite phrases is “a Gumby God.” Do you remember Gumby? I may be showing my age, but Gumby was popular when I was young. Gumby is a simple cartoon-like character that [...]

Raised Up

I often enjoy reading John Stonestreet’s blog on Breakpoint. In today’s post, John quoted an old Easter message from Chuck Colson talking about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If you were not around in the days of the Nixon administration, you might not be familiar with the Watergate scandal. As an attorney, Chuck Colson served as Special Council to President Nixon from 1969 to 1970. He was one of seven political advisors convicted by a [...]
