In our culture, the word submit has become a swear word. This is very unfortunate because it has been twisted out of context. When people think of submission, they envision a cave man like guy dragging his wife by the hair while she makes him breakfast. This is the most distorted and inaccurate view of submission that anyone can come up with. Submission is not a chore but rather a great privilege. Why? Because God designed it that way. Here are four reasons why your wife is not submitting to your leadership: Continue Reading…

Most couples who get married jump ship before the going gets good. Marriage is a divine dance that you get better at with age. More importantly, marriage is the most graphic display of what the gospel of Jesus is all about. It is a daily dying to self and a daily resurrection because of Jesus’ grace that He lavishes upon two broken sinners, living together in the same space. I am nowhere near being an expert on marriage. However, I am convinced that if you spend ten minutes doing this daily with your spouse, your marriage will be transformed for the better: Continue Reading…

I will never forget the shocked response I got from a group of people when I said that I love Jesus more than I love my wife while my wife was present. And she agreed with me and said the same is true for her. I am convinced that most couples split up not because they don’t love each other but because they don’t love Jesus, more than one another. These phrases elevate one person over the other thus making this a self-centered relationship, instead of Christ-centered. Here are four phrases that content married couples never say to each other, and one they always do:

This is a guest post written by fellow friend and blogger Brandon Vaara. Connect with him on his blog, Facebook and Twitter.

My fellow friends on the internets, this must not be so. Here are ten things people on the Internet should start doing: Continue Reading…

I love young people. But as a pastor, it pains me to see so many individuals who are in their twenties doing what they shouldn’t. The foundation you build in your twenties will define the rest of your life. The Bible urges you to become a master builder (1 Cor. 3:10). Therefore, if you are in your twenties or anywhere around that vicinity, here are twenty things you should stop doing: Continue Reading…

If you grew up in a Christian culture like me, you probably have used many of these phrases. Even though you had a good intention behind saying it, the effect was minimal, if not detrimental. These are very often used as empty filler phrases and turn out to sound Christianese to those who are not attuned to a Jesus culture. I hereby declare for the good of mankind and for the glory of God that today be the day when Christians stop saying these four phrases: Continue Reading…
