authority

How to Pray for Those in Authority

In his encouragement to Timothy, Paul makes a bold statement that prayer, in various forms, should be made for all men, and urged this young pastor to pray for those in authority. Godless Emperor Nero was on the throne at that time. Yet, the believers were supposed to pray for him?
Brentwood Baptist Church

Same Address, Different Church

As I start my 30th year of ministry at Brentwood Baptist Church, people have been asking me to tell them the secret of a long-term ministry. A growing church will always demand their pastor to be the first one who grows. After all, no organization, not even a church, can ever outrun its leader.
perfectionism

How Perfectionism Makes You a Spiritual Quitter

When we allow our desire for perfectionism to shut us down spiritually, we are actually standing in our own way. We’re cutting ourselves off from our only hope for spiritual growth and formation, and we ultimately decide that if we can’t seek God in our own, “perfect” way, then we won’t seek Him at all.
die to yourself

Are You Really Supposed to Die to Yourself?

For years, there has been a silent message that most of us have been taught to accept. It is based on an idea that is portrayed as Biblical. The message is that in order to be a good Christian in any situation, no matter how hard, you must die to yourself.

Just Do It – What Your Church and Nike Have in Common

How many times do you think you've seen the Nike swoosh logo and read the phrase Just do it? A few hundred? A thousand? Imagine you asked your church this Sunday to fill in the tagline that goes under the swoosh logo—do you think 100% of people would be able to do it from memory?
mature disciple

Mature Disciple Making Gone Horribly Wrong

As you rebuild your definition of a mature disciple avoid the mistake of measuring discipleship by activity; church attendance, serving in a ministry, participation in a small group, Bible reading, quiet time.
marriage

Help! I’m Infatuated With Someone Other Than My Spouse

The first wrong response is to assume something is wrong with your marriage, in the sense that you need a new marriage. For us Christians, trouble in our marriage is more like finding out we have heart disease.

tears

The Language of Tears

As our High Priest, Jesus is able to sympathize with our weaknesses and so provide what he knows we need. He understands the accent of our tears.
look death in the face

Look Death in the Face

It’s the one area of human life where there is no discrimination or bias whatsoever. It might also be the only time where everyone agrees and acts similarly. It’s the harsh and inescapable reality of death.

How to Avoid Growing Weary While Serving the Vulnerable During a Pandemic

Vulnerable populations across America are suffering even more. In response, the Church is taking her place in our local communities and around the world to care for, support, and stand with the hurting and oppressed all around us.

Too Many Christian Workaholics

Why are there so many workaholics in the church? Why do we struggle to find time for ministry, prayer, and Scripture reading but spend way too much time in the office or our work inbox?

Your Church Needs an Intergenerational Communication Plan

Once we realize the importance of intergenerational communication platforms and how to access generations, we have a much better chance of bridging the gap and finding ways to bring generations together.
Depression, Hopelessness, and Suicide

Being a Christian Does Not Make You Immune to Depression, Hopelessness, and Suicide

What would happen if the Church were to use this opportunity to talk about depression, hopelessness, and suicide from the pulpit? I suspect that hurting individuals might realize they are not the only ones suffering, they are loved and not judged and can get the help they need.

God Doesn’t Give the Hardest Battles to His Toughest Soldiers

God doesn’t give the hardest battles to His toughest soldiers; He creates the toughest soldiers out of life’s hardest battles. It seems as though some of the hardest battles that I have been through have come when I am at my weakest.
