Why Won't You Get In?

On June 23rd 2013 Nik Wellenda crossed The Grand Canyon on a tight rope. This death defying act had it's doubters and supporters I am sure. Yet, now that he has done it, Do you believe he could do it again? What if he said this time he would take a wheelbarrow across? Would you believe he could? If you say you would have faith in Nik taking the wheelbarrow, what would you say if he told you to get in it? Would you be so faithful to his abilities then?

Reaching Out

My mother-in-law use to call me a Maverick Christian. At first I thought it was kinda cool, like being an outlaw. I even took a little pride in being "that guy". I seriously thought I was "the guy" everyone should talk to because I had all the answers! I didn't need anyone... after all, I had God!

One day a man told me something I will never forget; "There is no such thing as a Lone Ranger Christian". To be a "Lone Ranger" is to deny Christ all together! Feel like the Lone Ranger?

Can We Fix it?

My three year old son sometimes watches "Bob the Builder". Bob's theme song is;

"Can we fix it? Yes we can!"

Most of us dance to the same tune when it comes to our hurts, habits, and hang-ups. If we have enough information, enough encouragement, and all the right tools then we can fix any problem in our life. The trouble with this is we try and fix it on our own, which we have learned is not a good place for us to be.

A mentor of mine was known for saying it this way:

God has fixed a fix to fix you but you have tried fixing the fix that God has fixed to fix you, so God fixes another fix to fix you.
