If we are to be men of God, cable of being used by God in meaningful ways, we must learn to be humble or we will learn to be humbled. God is clear about this. We see a challenging example of this in the leadership and development of Peter as Jesus discipled him.
We are Christ’s ambassadors, representing him in everything we think, say, and do. If you claim to be a follower of Christ, this is true for you whether you’re in a foreign land or on your home’s door step. With this category we will discuss how we represent Christ both near and far. It will contain talk on actual missions and evangelism, as well as questions, insights, and resources on how we best represent Christ in our society in day to day life! For a complete description of our categories, check out the Categories page.
Brew your coffee and get ready, we’re going live for our first #HoldFastChats of 2016 with any of our active contributors who want to join! We’ll be discussing things like ambitions, goals, self-improvement and making much of Jesus versus ourselves. Hope you can join us!
This quote by Nikolaus Zinzendorf is an acute challenge to our prideful ambitions and cultural teachings to make much of ourselves and our own names. This is an admonishment greatly needed for young men of God. This is about Jesus, not you and me.
In the latest “TweetSeries” we had Brad Gray share some nuggets of truth and wisdom on the amazing and boundless topic of grace! Check em out, show some “hearts” and join in the convo!
You hear this a lot, but is it true? Is Christianity really dying? Turns out there are some underlying realities in the answers to this question that are actually quite encouraging. Take the time to watch this video shared from The Village Church Training Institute and you’ll be encouraged!
Few people could speak to our present times and debates with the integrity and insight that Bonhoeffer’s words can. He remained steadfastly committed to God’s word and calling in his life to the point of execution by Nazis, but part of that commitment was always compassion for fellow man.
One minute we’re fussing over trivial matters, the next we’re deciding if we accept refugees and save lives. When times are troubled, politicians are debating, and people are worried, who are we called to be? How do we respond? What is our course and our hope?
People who live in offense to God will likely be offended by the gospel, but is that surprising to anyone? Is it our job to worry about this?
Reflections and insights from a young man who recently returned from two years overseas, in Spain, on world missions. Some questions you’d expect, maybe some you wouldn’t, but a lot to learn either way (even if you’ve never considered global missions)!
I’ve found men have many reasons for why they don’t blog, but here are some unarguably awesome reasons why you should probably get started, now. Blogging has changed my life for over a decade. It will do the same for you.

“Let’s place a giant picture of Jesus’ face on the stage.” Well, what does Jesus look like? I’m afraid I know what the answer is, and it’s pretty ugly…
Do you continually chase after things you think will bring you life? Jesus helps us out of our state of eternal death, and he also seems to know we need help staying out of our grave clothes too!
Doing gospel ministry well means doing administrative work, teaching, and a great deal of relational work. One of the most important aspects for everyone is the relational aspect, but it is usually the most complex and difficult. Dustin breaks this down four types of relationships that we must understand.
In a previous post, we talked about being “born again” and what this means. Now let’s look at WHY we need to be born again and know we’ve experienced this “new birth”. Because without understanding this, God’s word says you’re dead!
What did Jesus mean when he said, “You must be born again” and what do many Americans seem to think it means? There seems to be a big difference. This difference is a big problem for anyone thinking they’re “saved”, because a closer look at scripture shows being “born again” is not something you and […]
