How to Become a Stronger Man

Our culture has a decidedly dim view of masculinity. Husbands and fathers have become the punching bags of popular culture, portrayed as inattentive, clueless, shallow and weak, or society glorifies a brand of manhood that is devoid of honor in which macho playboys are elevated as the gold standard of maleness. The bottom line is that we live in a world in desperate need for men to act like men, but what does it look like to truly embrace this identity?

Are You a Mouthpiece for Satan?

What we say and what others say about us — whether positive or negative — shapes who we are and how we see ourselves. We can’t divorce ourselves from what comes out of our mouths. Jesus articulates this reality, “It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person… what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart.” (Matthew 15:11; 18a). This is why words are not just about the tongue: they are directly connected to who we are — to our identity — and they are intimately connected to the core of our being.

What Should Be Your Prayer For 2017?

We often worry about our prayer life becoming stagnant. We don’t want to get stuck in a spiritual rut, so we shoot for newness or freshness in our prayers, and that’s a good thing. However, better than trying something new is intentionality in your prayer life. An intentional prayer life can do more than anything else to bring freshness in your walk and relationship with God.

Why I Love When Christmas Falls on a Sunday

When Christmas falls on a Sunday, and the doors of the church open, it’s one more reminder to a watching world that it’s all about Jesus. During Christmas time, people’s interest is piqued in all things Christmas, including the true reason for the season. With all the talk of joy, faith, goodwill, and peace, there may not be a better time to invite someone who has yet to experience life transformation power of the Gospel message.

Santa Claus: Defender of the Faith?

Santa is nearly inescapable this time of year. He’s in the mall. He’s giving away Coca-Cola and selling cars on TV. And he is even on street corners collecting money for the Salvation Army. Santa is really busy! Santa also seems to find himself in the midst of cultural collision as secularists seeks to parcel out how Christmas can be celebrated without the “Christ” part in the mix, and for many, Santa Clause is a figure who has come to be considered safely secular. But is Santa safe for secularists? Did someone come up with the story of Santa just distract people from the true reason for the season? And what should parents say about Santa?
