Choice, Calling, and Imaging God

The opportunity we uniquely have to image God is a paradoxical combination of what we choose and what is handed to us by the world around us.

Apostolic Grace

We will have times in our life when God sends us to our own private Gethsemane and like Jesus, we cry out, “God, could there be any other way?” I

The Triune Church

The issue is that the world is starting to speak a different sociological language than the church, leaving the church to feel outdated.

Triune Transformation

This is the way the triune God works redemption into our lives: cycle-by-cycle bringing us through growth in Relationship-Identity-Destiny, each time adding another layer.

Triune Evangelism

What should we be telling someone when God is moving upon them to move them to salvation?

Triune Gospel: The Identity Journey

We are invited into a life where we are made of the same stuff as Jesus, and we live united with him. He is in us now, and we are in him as well.

Triune Gospel: The Trinity

What does this all mean for knowing God? Well, it means that to some degree, we have three distinct relationships with the one God.

Triune Gospel: Weighing Teachings

I think one of the things that is important to keep in mind is that the Bible is what was inspired and gifted to us by the Holy Spirit, not theology. 

What Is the Church?

This is the kind of collective action I’m talking about; something new that
happens with all of us that transcends the way God is working with any one of us.

Dimensionality and Diversity

If we don’t understand God’s design in diversity, how do we know our efforts in this area are actually redemptive?

Tech, Attention, and the Holy Spirit

The technology that has become ubiquitous in our 21st-century lives is distinct
in that it merges with our daily lives to the extent that it is never very far from our minds.

Where Are the Church Futurists?

The church needs to be tracking with what God is doing in the entire world and how that is going to affect our ability to pursue the great commission.
