Jesus on Leadership

In this day and age, there are hundreds of books published every year on the topic of leadership. There are also a multitude of conferences each year on the topic of leadership. The modern idea of leadership is someone who holds a form of authority and is seem as a teacher. Being a Christian leader […]

Who Should We Receive Ministry From?

Recently, I have had a number of conversations with brothers and sisters on the topic of who we receive ministry and revelation from. It is evident to me that many Christians only seem to receive and welcome ministry from one or two authors, preachers, or ‘Christian celebrities’. Practically, it’s convenient to find someone you agree […]

Art and the Church

In this post i’m going to attempt to talk about art and how it relates to the Church. This is quite a strange topic for me since I don’t really know much about art. However, I am able to appreciate the beauty and skill behind it. I’m actually the odd one out in my family […]

A Christ-Centered Devotional Poem

A while back I wrote a poem called “The Preeminent Christ” based on Colossians chapter 1 and I’ve decided to share something similar with you. I recently read a blog post called “Christ the Center – Pt. 3: The Heart of the Matter” by David Bolton. In it, David expresses Christ as the center of all […]

A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 2

In my previous post “A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 1“, I initiated a study on the main verses in the new testament that talk about mutual edification. I looked at Romans 14:19, which revealed that Paul speaks about avoiding anything that may cause a brother to stumble and prescribes active mutual edification among the saints. One of the main […]

A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 1

Recently, I had a conversation with a brother about mutual edification. The funny thing is that our conversation that started out as a light hearted dialogue, turned into a more heated debate/argument, which I realized was far from mutually edifying. I hope you see the irony in this. I then started to consider all the […]

Christ – The Center of All Things

While thinking back on my journey with the Lord, I realized that there was one main revelation/realization that changed the way I saw the Lord and how I lived the Christian life. It was coming to an understanding that Christ is the center of all things. It is easy (and common) to be focused and […]

Christian Unity – What it is and What it’s Not

This post is part of a chain blog series initiated by Alan Knox on the topic of “real relational unity”. The first post in the chain is by Alan and can be found here (Chain Blog: Real Relational Unity) Christian unity is a common topic in many circles, and rightfully so. However, in reality, Christian […]

Why I’m Pro-Organic Church – Part 3

Part 1 and Part 2 of this series on organic church goes through my journey into finding out about organic church and what the characteristics of an organic church are. It is almost impossible to say what any one meeting will look like in an organic church, because Christ as the head of the gathering can […]

Book Review: From Eternity to Here by Frank Viola

There are thousands of new Christian books released every year. Having read tons of these books I can honestly say that no book has had an impact on me as much as Frank Viola’s “From Eternity to Here“. From Eternity to Here is a stunning narrative revealing God’s eternal purpose and how it relates to us – […]
