A few months ago I stumbled across an article entitled “What Would Martin Luther King Jr. Tweet?” written by Alveda King, Dr. King’s niece. I’m sure that many of us remember the great speeches Dr. King gave during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s. But sometimes we can forget that he was first and foremost a preacher. And we can overlook that much of his rhetorical power came from his tenure in the pulpit and immersion in God’s word. He understood that the fight for Civil Rights was tied to his eternal faith in our Lord.

John Bell had a chance to do something most of us will hopefully never be able to do: he held his own heart in his hands. Bell had undergone a successful heart transplant two years earlier, and now, through a program called Heart-to-Heart at Dallas’s Baylor University Medical Center, he was able to hold the organ that had kept him alive for seventy years before it was replaced. This amazing story reminded me of another heart transplant: my own. And while I haven’t undergone a “physical” heart transplant – all of us who follow Christ have experienced a spiritual version of this process.

God’s beloved creation. Do not forget that we, of all humanity, are his creation.

The life that is given to us is a gift of the spirit. His spirit breathes life.

The example for how we are to live is in his Son, the living example of love. And, that love is sacrificial.

But how do we participate in this love? This is his command, to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ. And, to love one another as he commanded us.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.

An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them and they were terrified.

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.”

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you...”

I want peace, but my ways, this world-they say otherwise.

Bring us to a new place. A place where you have set order.

Come Lord, come to this world.

Bring your peace.

When Israel was a child... I loved him and out of Egypt I called my son.
The Shema is an ancient prayer of Israel. “Hear, O Israel: The LORD is our God, The LORD is one.

You shall love the Lord your God with all of your heart, with all of your soul and with all of your might.” 
Our hope is in the Messiah. Immanuel, God with us.
But what we see daily, in our world—where does it lead us.
Does it lead us to hope?
Hope is not a feeling...
Hope is not an object...
Hope is not an idea.
Hope is in HIM.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year. We eat great food, see good friends and family and take the time to reflect over another year of God’s goodness. And even more than that, I love giving thanks. And as it turns out, there’s a very good reason for that. Not only does giving thanks feel good, it actually is good for you!

In 2013, archeologists in the Cappadocian region of Turkey made an astounding find: a series of underground churches buried under a Byzantine-era fortress. These small chapels contained icons and ancient frescoes, giving archeologists a glimpse into a fascinating and integral chapter in the story of Christianity, where a trio of Church leaders known as the “Cappadocian Fathers” helped shape a foundational tenet of our faith that to this day is still spoken aloud in millions of churches around the world.

During the Klondike Gold Rush, prospectors carved 1,500 individual steps into the mountain ice in Skagway Alaska. They called it the Golden Staircase. And every day men and women from around the world climbed it, lugging a year’s worth of supplies by foot. They fought through avalanches, blizzards and wolves for a chance to strike it rich and change their lives forever. But what they went through is nothing compared to what our Triune God endured to pursue what He valued most: the salvation of humanity.

Halloween is a holiday devoted mostly to one thing: FEAR. People buy tickets to experience a good scare in haunted houses or darkened movie theaters, or dress up as their favorite monsters. But our culture’s fixation with fear seems to go beyond October 31st. Fear-driven headlines, marketing strategies, and rhetoric fill the world around us, and in the face of it all we might find fear taking root in our own hearts. If we’re honest with ourselves, many of us experience fear daily, about everything from being late to a meeting, to getting on an airplane, or even about our own future.
