Jesus Can't Save Your Life

I didn’t realize that I had brain damage. I just stumbled onto the fact while trying to follow Jesus. It turns out I keep believing that my physical being is what matters. I can’t seem to get a grip on the idea that this body is a costume, a tool. The real me, the one that can make a difference, is wearing this bag of flesh. I forget that we are three-part beings. Each of us is a spirit. We have a body and a mind. Two of these are more ethereal, which makes us think they carry less importance [ more and comment...]

The Shell Game

Have you ever heard the old saying “The good is the enemy of the great”? Much of what I write is, at least in part, influenced by the concept in this proverb. This is a warning. These words are trying to keep us from settling for satisfactory, mediocre. If we aren’t careful, we will be so blinded by the good that we will stop just short of the truly great that could have been. I think this happens to us in our Christian walk.
