Feeding the Flesh


The fol­low­ing is an excerpt from a chap­ter on sanc­ti­fi­ca­tion from a sim­ple book on doc­trine called: Dug Down Deep. In it Josh Har­ris answers ques­tions like “If we’re new, why do we so often act old? If we’re changed by faith in Christ, why do so many parts of our lives still need ren­o­va­tion? Why […]

Moving on up…

Successful Summer. Wasted Summer.

Suc­cess­ful sum­mer or wasted sum­mer? What is going to be God’s assess­ment of your 2006 sum­mer vaca­tion? Is this the sum­mer you are going to dive in and really seek God for eternity’s sake, or is this going to be just another sum­mer where you soak up what­ever, and waste pre­cious months on the trivial […]


His name was Dylan Kle­bold. He may have been kind to his friends in pre-school. He worked hard in school, and he was even in Cub Scouts where he prob­a­bly did nice things for peo­ple. But one day, things started to change. He started mak­ing deci­sions that would change who he was for the rest […]

Prep Talk

Get­ting ready for big games in col­lege carry a lot of mem­o­ries for me. It all would start in a small room to stretch and get ready. It was nor­mally really quiet in the room. Guys stretch­ing out. Oth­ers wrap­ping ankles. Con­cen­tra­tion. The sound of chalk scratch­ing the line up on the green chalk­board board […]

Gospel-Centered Teens

by Jason Corn­well Being a teenager is tough. I remem­ber, even though it’s almost been 10 years ago.

God’s Multiplying Power

I must learn never to mea­sure God’s resources by mine. Some­one has said. “Lit­tle is much when God is in it.” One of Elisha’s friends, a widow, had only one jar of oil (2 Kings 4:1–7). Instead of telling her to con­serve it, he ordered her to do exactly the oppo­site: pour it out.
