Ephesians 5b

The second half of Ephesians 5 is such a popular passage. It’s often read at weddings because Paul outlines the relationship of husbands and wives, which is really supposed to be an image of Christ and the Church. I don’t know about you, but a lot of the marriages I see don’t represent Christ andContinue reading “Ephesians 5b”

How to Be a Better Husband

Today, I want us to focus on an idea that comes up multiple times in the Bible: The idea of God being the husband/bridegroom and us being the bride.  I’ll admit it’s quite tough for me to try to imagine being a woman / wife. But it’s not difficult for me to imagine God beingContinue reading “How to Be a Better Husband”

The Man, The Myth, The Legend (1)

A few weeks ago, I met with a man for dinner. He’s an adopted child, ex-crack addict, multi-millionaire. Odd combo, eh? That’s exactly why I met with him. Not because he’s an oddball, but because I can learn a lot from him. So a few weeks ago, we discussed current events, cross-country expeditions, and pastContinue reading “The Man, The Myth, The Legend (1)”
