Follow Jesus
Jesus was so secure with who He was that He had no anxiety being around the dysfunction of others. He was never concerned that being around "those people" would somehow rub off on Him. He would comfortably interact with rich & poor, sinners & self-righteous. His comfort would extend beyond Himself to make those trapped in their own dysfunction believe they could follow Him and find something more.

Legacy of Faithfulness
This weekend, two friends, two fathers in ministry, finished their race and went home to be with Jesus. Bro. Paul Box was my first pastor. Dr. Mike Compton was my College Pastor. I am grateful for Bro. Paul and for Mike. I hope to live up to the legacy of faith they invested in me. They will be missed.

As I watched Caedmon play I had a thought. There is one feeling, one emotion, one experience God has reserved for us that he will never experience himself.

Bad Things Good People
I'm often asked why bad things happen to good people. Tornados have devastated much of my home town again. I have friends displaced by the tragedy and some whose lives will never be the same.

better
It's not enough for the church to be 'different' from others. It's not enough for our lives as Believers to be marginally better than the lives of non-Believers.
