Whether you realize it or not, the audience is a reflection of us onstage. When you’re performing or leading worship and you look out at the people, what do you see? Are they fully present with you? Are they singing their hearts out? Or does there seem to be a disconnect somewhere? ...

The “big reveal” of the Kingdom of Heaven and how Jesus’ followers would live in this world is presented by Jesus in Matthew 5-7. Those men knew the old Jewish religion from birth but this new way of life is so completely different that they had no idea what Christ Jesus is talking about. After this foundational talk The Lord had to reveal more pieces of truth step by step over the three years of his ministry so they could digest this radical new way of living. Remember this teaching was for ...

This post isn't about the Washington, DC-based Museum of the Bible. Instead, it’s about the interesting journey of The Bible Museum and how it grew up to become a popular name worldwide from its modest start. It all began without any plan, but by God’s grace, it grew so big that people from far and wide now come to the online site as well as the physical store to browse and buy ancient and rare Bibles and Bible leaves. Since 1987, The Bible Museum has been the largest dealer of antique and ra...

I wonder how many of us professional musicians mislead our audience. We are either intentionally leading them or maybe unintentionally misleading them. I remember one night – back before I was old enough to join our church youth group – my church hosted a concert by a local band that was friends of our family.  My dad was down on the main floor running lights and had designated one of the older youth members to run the spotlight from up in the balcony. At one point during the show, the lead gu...

The hope God has given you, don't let anyone take it from you. Keep it secretly in your heart, protect it from skeptics, from pessimists, nourish it with your dreams, until the day it is revealed. Fall in love with God first and He will give you the perfect person for you at the most opportune time. Christian love manifests itself in patience to cover faults and ignore offenses....

According to recent statistics, Christians are the largest religious group, with a whopping 2.3 billion believers or a noticeable 31.2% of the global population of 7.3 billion. Christians have always deemed the era of Jesus and his disciples a standard for all the other ages. This belief powered the church’s faith in Jesus - the Messiah, who was resurrected. This faith also drove the anticipation of forgiveness of sins through Jesus. But have you ever wondered how the history of the Christian ch...

One of the things I like about memes is that they provide enough of a thought - or in this case, enough of the Word - to ignite the desire to find out more. I always see a verse or other small portion of Scripture as a starting point rather than an end in itself, as any portion taken out of context can be misleading at best. This week as I saved Scripture portions I saw that Isaiah was quite prominent; whether that was the Lord putting these verses in my path or whether these verses had greater ...

First: Rich Maffeo's post for the first Sunday amid Lent is HERE, if you wish to join me in being edified, moved, and convicted by it. He has had some fantastic posts on his blog this week, I hope that you can read some - or all! - of them. They are always time well-spent! Second: I wrote about the start of Lent last week, and have planned a series of Supernal Sunday posts that will share, topically and in a series, the meaning of this entire season of Lent leading up to the day we celebr...
