How to Prove to the World That God Is Good

Have you ever been to Sam’s Club or Costco on a Saturday?

If you have, you already know where I’m going with this. If not, you gotta go.

If you can brave the herd of people meandering the oversized aisles buying their oversized goods, it’s worth the trip.

Why?

The Most Common Response When God Calls

Sometimes I feel like a fraud.

Whether it’s Satan or just my own insecurity, in the dark moments I hear the voices:

You’ll never succeed as a writer.
Who are you to write a book?

Yet what keeps me coming back to the keyboard even on those dark days is the sense of purpose I get from the act of writing.

God has called me to write.

But my insecurities are not unique to me. In fact, the response is quite common. Take Moses.

The Best Bible I Ever Read: A Giveaway!

Sitting in that dark sanctuary four years ago, I felt a fire rising in my belly. On any other Sunday, I might have attributed it to bad pizza. But not that day.

It's Time We Redefine Worship

Worship isn't something you do on Sundays.

Sure that's part of it.

Singing, clapping, raising of the hands. Yes, that's one iteration of worship.

But it's a shallow one.

Did Jesus Contradict Himself?

You heard the preacher quote Jesus saying, “My yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matt. 11:30).

So you bought in. You said yes to Him.

But then you started reading the New Testament.

And you read that you have to carry your cross:

Whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Matthew 10:38 (ESV)

Last you checked, a cross isn’t very light is it?

So now you're stuck. Turning away from Jesus is a possibility, but to what or whom would you turn?

But continuing down your current path might mean persecution, death, or at the very least a good amount of pain.

Did Jesus contradict Himself? Why would He say that His burden is light?
