Preacher on the Run…

Faith, Family, Ministry, and Everything in between



Feature Friday (3/30/17)

Are we there yet? I remember uttering this phrase countless times as a child. Those words came out of my mouth most frequently on long trips to grandma’s house. In those days, I could not wait to get to where we were going. All I thought about was the destination.

Now as a father of an energetic talkative 4 year old, the phrase “are we there yet” is a bit irritating. It’s not that I don’t understand or can’t relate, I still love getting to our destination on trips, but the older I get, and the more trips we take as a family, the more my mentality shifts. No longer do I care only about the destination, but now I simply look forward to the journey as well.

The same can and should be said of salvation. The problem is we tend to talk about salvation as simply a destination to arrive at and not a journey that we are on. As Bill Hull points out in this week’s Feature Friday, “the New Testament speaks of salvation as both an event and a process—a journey.”. Check out the rest of the article “What Does It Mean to be Saved“.

As always, be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!

The USA has done it again, another gold medal. I have heard this statement a number of times over the past 2 weeks. The Olympics will be winding down soon in Rio, but the sports fandom will carry on for quite a while.

I love sports. I began playing organized sports at the age of 5 and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon, even if how much I play has slowed. Sports has been a part of my life for a long time. I hope that sports will continue to be a part of my life as my children grow up and gain interest in them. However, I want to make sure that I and my children have a solid “Theology of Sport“. The apostle Paul gives us a great place to begin building our theology of sport in 1 Timothy 4:1-10 and this article helps us think through it.

Enjoy watching the Olympics. Enjoy your sports. And help others enjoy sports also. But as always enjoy being the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day this weekend!

Live-stream-slide-for-GTYThis week I have been trying to catch as much of a controversial yet instructional conference. It is the Strange Fire Conference being held at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. This is a local church known best for its leading pastor, John MacArthur. The conference has been addressing the charismatic movement and theology. Feel free to check it out yourself and as always I would love to interact with you about it. If you missed any or all of it you can catch up over at Grace to You!

Be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day.
