To those that know a little geometry: let me explain salvation and relationship with Jesus using this somewhat silly, but amazingly true, comparison I was introduced to. Knowing Jesus is not defined as a [point] in space. It is not a one time experience of who He is, or a one time feeling of conviction, … Continue reading Throw down your nets
God has a plan and a purpose, even when we don’t recognize it. We get quite caught up in our desires, our schedules, our plans, our careers, our everything, and we neglect the fact that God has His hand over us and over every situation. At least I am guilty of that. I am guilty … Continue reading Cabriolet Wisdom
Rent-A-Greg will take place throughout much of April. Are you moving? Do you have a baby that needs to be sat? Do you have an engineering problem that requires consulting? Possibly a task that only a Greg would be fit for? Need for a general laborer on a weekend? Need a motorcycle chauffeur, a pet sitter, a … Continue reading Rent-A-Greg
While out in the desert, the Israelites decided to melt down their gold jewelry to create an idol in the shape of a calf. They worshipped this baby cow made of gold. A calf of gold is what they chose to worship. How does that sound to you? It sounds crazy to me. At this … Continue reading Do you have a cow?
God abhors our sin. Sin is that thing that we, humanity, allowed to pull our eyes away from God. We took our eyes off of Him; and that was just the start. We turned in a different direction. We messed up (and we continue to). Only what is perfect and holy may come into the … Continue reading “HATE THE SIN, LOVE THE SINNER”
I believe it was July of 2011. My friend Jordan and I decided we were going on an adventure, as we do fairly often. We save up, pick a place on the map, and go. We were going to Olympic National Park in Washington, hiking out of a small town called Port Angeles. Then we … Continue reading What just happened?
Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. Matthew 18:3-5 I was in a room this … Continue reading the little people
This Saturday was just like most other Saturdays, me trying to remind my body I didn’t have to be awake for school; my body reminding me it doesn’t keep a different schedule for weekends. So I was up with plenty of time to do, or think, or consider, or waste. I had a tug on … Continue reading …in THIS city
If I wind up with children down the road, my prayer is that they would see Jesus in me. So many children have to “happen upon” a role model, a spiritual mentor, and a first friend. I want to be these things for my child, within the home. My prayer is that whenever I die, … Continue reading Arms Wide, Friend
The mission field just isn’t for me. God’s just not calling me to be a missionary. I’ll do mission work when I have more time. Missionary? I don’t have enough money for that. I don’t know where I should go. Full-time mission work? It doesn’t even pay. It’s too risky. These are just a … Continue reading Christian = Missionary
