Pronking

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Jesus – John 10:10 NIV Jesus came in order to give us life in all its fullness. He did not come to save us so that we would merely wait until…

This is bigger than me

The other day I posted an image on the All4God Facebook page. It was my attempt at making a “Hey Christian Boy” style post, combining a couple of things I like – Christian chat-up lines and Taylor Swift. The picture was of Taylor Swift with a caption added to it “Hey guy, you put the…

All your might

“And David danced before the Lord with all his might, wearing a priestly garment” 2 Samuel 6:14 A little context for this verse.

Sleeping Beauty

On August 7th, I hiked up a mountain with my good friend Peter McMurray called Sleeping Beauty in the Adirondacks. It was amazing, but very difficult because it was long and steep, and I am very out of shape. Just when we would think that we were getting close to the top another hill would…

Light up

“All glory to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, forever. Amen.” Romans 16:27 We all carry a flashlight in our hands. Some of people use it to point at ourselves, lighting themselves up for those around to see how great they are. Some choose to point them at a band or sports team, putting…
