The Wicked, Wicked, Condition.
Have you ever had one of those days, where you thought too much, said too much, and did too much?
I’m not talking about good things, I’m talking about bad things. It’s kinda like going on a binge of overeating, when you are left bloated, lazy, and almost completely immobilized.
This morning, as I

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) Yet what happens when we sin? Do we try and hide it as if in somehow some way God didn’t notice? Or do we with a humble and contrite heart come to the cross and confess our sins to Jesus Christ? Proverbs speaks on this very topic. Proverbs 20:9 says “Who...

Being a parent can be challenging at times when it comes to discipline. Sometimes you are looked at as the mean one.
I’m reminded of when my son was grounded for the weekend but his friend from school was having a birthday party.
He got very upset that he wasn’t able to go, and my wife and I were not the most popular people in the house.

Proverbs 18:19 says: "A brother offended is harder to be won then a strong city, and contentions are like the bars of a citadel."
When I look back on the friendships I have had, I have memories of joy and unfortunately,... memories of regret. The memories of joy are from building those friendships through shared experiences. The...

"Let the wise listen and add to their learning" -Proverbs 1:5 (NIV)
"The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice." -Proverbs 12:15 (NIV)
These verses are a helpful reminder for me to talk less. As I speak I can only speak of something that I know, but as I listen I can learn of things that I do not...

Proverbs 22:6 -“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it”
We’ve all experienced the ups, downs, and curve’s the “road of life” has to offer—from issues with family and friends, to issues at work, to today’s economy, and the road can be bumpy. So what can...

How do you choose your friends? Is it out of convenience? To make you look better? Do they have season tickets to the Seahawks? True friendship requires a willing heart, communication, and love with no reserves. A real friend is with you in good times and bad.
Proverbs 17:17 says, "A friend loves at all time, and a ...

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Do you ever read this verse and just shake your head and say, REALLY? Really Lord? Lord, are you kidding me? Lord, is this some kind of of a joke? Have you looked at my life lately Lord? - this is a ...

This morning as the men of [C:A] gathered together, we were studying Jeremiah's prophecy to the nation of Israel.
The Jews had abandoned following the Lord, and though they were experiencing somewhat of a revival under Josiah and his reforms, they had not really turned to God with their whole heart and discipline was on it's way.

Wow, what a great time we had last night! I was so thankful for a great turn-out and all of the great fellowship.
Some folks showed up early and helped out, others stayed late and helped with cleanup, and every one was involved with fellowship in-between!
I truly love looking around and seeing the family visiting together. I think the Lord ...

Yesterday I was asked, "what is your biggest struggle?" Since launching C:A, that has been a pretty frequent question. I've developed my answer. My biggest struggles have been re-learning, perhaps in deeper ways, the simple lessons that all of us learn as Christians. The ironic thing is that these lessons have been the subjects of our ...

These are some thoughts from last Saturday's Men's Ministry study... I posted this on my blog, but also wanted to add it here at C:A blog.
…Then this Daniel began distinguishing himself among the commissioners and satraps because he possessed an extraordinary spirit, and the king planned to appoint him over the entire kingdom. 4 Then the ...

This morning as we began our lessons in the book of Daniel, we discussed the resolve of the young man.
But Daniel made up his mind that he would not defile himself with the king's choice food or with the wine which he drank; so he sought permission from the commander of the officials that he might not defile himself.
Dan 1:8 (NASB)

One of the biggest misconceptions about the church, is that it is a building.
In reality, and by strict definition, it is not, and really, has nothing to do with geographical location or structure. This is one of the reasons that I have worked hard to not call the building that we rent "the church." That is, however, proving ...
