"By the Beard of Zeus!" I cranked on the motor with my pipe wrench... Nothing. I could almost visualize the $1000 going down the toilet if I couldn’t get this compressor working again. The fine print was so small, and yet, it was about to cost me big time. Whereas most of the compressors I installed in my pipe-fitting days were oil-less, this one happened to require oil; it was now seized. I cranked on it one last time… sputter… sputter… and the whurl of the motor kicked in. I finally exhaled. In truth, I was muttering a lot under...

“We are unprofitable servants.  We have done what we were obliged to do” (Luke 17:10).  We all know what great joy it is to live in a personal relationship with Jesus and we share our faith and lead faith studies, not because we are particularly good at it or want recognition, but because, as servants, we want everyone to experience the joy of knowing Jesus. On that note, I’d like to offer a few words of encouragement for those who will be leaving the familiar setting of campus evangelization and heading off to new and wonderful opportunities… As I mentioned,...

“Leaders don’t lie in bed at night dreaming about the way things are: they lie at bed at night dreaming about the way things could be and should be and must be” (Andy Stanley). That’s why many leaders are chronically sleep deprived! Leaders are hard-wired with a healthy spirit of discontent. Not dis-obedience, not arrogant recklessness … healthy discontent. There heart breaks with what breaks the heart of God. Jesus had healthy discontent, like the time he cleaned out the temple, violently, I might add. He saw the gap between what the temple could be and what it was, ‘a...

We have complete freedom to do as we choose. So where does God’s Divine Will, His Providence, fit in? You know what the hard answer is? Nobody totally knows; it’s a mystery. It’s beyond our ability to comprehend, but we can still know it as true. “See, I have set before you this day life and good, death and evil… I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day… therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice, and cleaving to him…” (Deut. 30:15-20). Here we see an instance where God, through the prophet...

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” Matthew 28:19 Jesus’ parting command to the disciples in Matthew 28 is to make disciples of all nations. This is a call to look beyond our families, our cities and our countries and ultimately to the ends of the earth.  The disciples’ heart was for the whole world and they were aware that the salvation offered through Christ was for all people. This is a challenging command! There is so much need for evangelization in our own communities that to hope to reach the world may seem too daunting at task, simply unrealistic. How can we...
