Pursue With Passion

Sometimes we think that living a lifestyle of purity and wholeness would be easier if temptations, lust, etc., would vanish from our daily lives. However, I want to encourage you to see each day as a choice to live a life of proactive pursuit.

If we view each day as the opportunity to passionately desire something, then what we pursue is the determining factor as to whether our thoughts…

Steps For Growth

In 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 it says:

"We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ."

This excellent verse contains several principles that can be applied to our walk towards greater purity…

From Season To Lifestyle

Is the pursuit of purity and wholeness in your life something that you value? In my own life I have gone through seasons of wanting purity and wholeness but I had to learn how to go from periodic seasons to a consistent lifestyle. This is something that I hear many men share with me as well and so here are some of the lessons I have learned while on this journey.

One of the first lessons…

Intimacy

If someone were to ask you to define the word intimacy, how would you define it? I think for most of us, we would probably think of intimacy as something that happens between a husband and a wife. In essence we would equate intimacy to a sexual act. If we were to take the sexual aspect of intimacy out of the definition of intimacy, then what would we have? Here are some definitions of…

Sweeter Than Honey

When I became a Christian I knew that my life would need to change in a lot of areas. Some of the changes were pretty easy to implement right away while other changes were a tad bit more difficult to embrace. As I look back on the early years of my faith, little did I know that some areas that would need to be changed would be more of a life-long process as opposed to a "one and done" decision.…

Be Like Who?

In 2 Peter 2:7-8 (NIV) it says:

"And if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)."

In reading some commentaries on the above verses I find that many look at this as evidence that God delivers…

Ask of Me

A few days ago I was led to read 1 Chronicles 14 verses 10 and 14. In both of the verses we read about David inquiring of God as to whether to go to battle and both times God tells him to pursue the Philistine army.

As I reflected on these verses I was pretty impressed that David, the king of Israel, had been informed of an attack/raid from the Philistine army and upon hearing the news he…

What's My Source?

One question that we have all probably asked ourselves is “Who Am I”? It is a good question and one that may be hard to answer for some. But I think for others some of our initial responses may be “I am a construction worker”, or “I am an accountant” or whatever else you would fill in the blank with. But answering the question with one of the responses above does not answer the question. It merely…
