"Shadows and Quicksands" - Crosswalk The Devotional - Sept. 22, 2010

O God, The Eternal All, help me to know that all things are shadows, but Thou art substance... I've felt distant from God lately...

"The Great Middle School Egg Drop" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 21, 2010

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God (Matt. 5:8, ESV). The great middle school egg drop turned out to be a dud—at least for me...

"Restoring Authentic Joy" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 20, 2010

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit (Psalm 51:12). Decades ago, Schaeffer walked with his students in the rarefied air of the Swiss Alps and applied Christian theology to all of life...

"Care Casting" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 17, 2010

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble (1 Peter 5: 5 - 7). Peter was a fisherman. It's little stretch to imagine that his livelihood affected his ministry and his writings...

"They Will Know We Are Christians By… What?" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 15, 2010

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience (Col. 3:12). Whether you think they're kitschy or bold statements, you have to acknowledge that Christians t-shirts sell - and sell well...

"Attack Week!" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 14, 2010

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine (Isaiah 43:1-3). Just like shark attacks, life attacks rarely give you advance warning that they're coming and getting ready to take a big ol' bite out of you...

"What's Your MQ?" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 13, 2010

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy (Matt. 5:7). You probably think of devotionals as being hands-off daily activities, challenging but not interactive...

"Outdone by an Atheist" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 7, 2010

For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened... (Ro. 1:21). There's something I admire about Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and their New Atheist kin.

"What Are You Working For?" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 6, 2010

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him (Col. 3: 17)./i> During my "out-of-work" days, I remember thinking about what it was like to be employed. What did I miss about my job?

"I Can Do Angry All by Myself" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 3, 2010

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth (Matt. 5: 5). I can do angry; angry is easy. In my thirty years, I've punched and kicked my way through unassuming sheetrock...

"Restoring Authentic Joy" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 2, 2010

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit (Psalm 51:12). Prior to the time of his most fruitful ministry years in post WW II Europe, Francis went through a period of severe crisis...

"When the Church Isn't Lovable" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Aug. 30, 2010

By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another (John 13:35). I can't blame Anne Rice for "quitting Christianity" when the church is so often unlovable.

"A Time of Confession" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Aug. 27, 2010

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). One of the things I have come to appreciate more and more in a liturgical church service each week is the time of confession.

"Hunger Pains" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Aug. 26, 2010

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled (Matt. 5: 6). Hunger and thirst have this bad habit of coming back. No quarter-pound hamburger or bucket-sized glass of tea can cure this vicious cycle...

"Liberty, Lists, or Love" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Aug. 25. 2010

…if because of food your brother is hurt, you are no longer walking according to love. Do not destroy with your food him for whom Christ died (Ro. 14:15). Without saying it directly, Schaeffer put his finger squarely on the core problem plaguing both the legalist and the libertine: both are driven to serve self.

"Expectant Prayers" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Aug. 20, 2010

But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind (James 1:6). "I'll pray for you" has become such a Christian catchphrase...

"Appearances Can Be Deceiving" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Aug. 19, 2010

The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). Leave it to God to pick the guy no one else would have picked to become Israel's greatest earthly king: David.

"Empty Rooms" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Aug. 18, 2010

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted (Matthew 5:4). Empty rooms always get to me. The echoes where couches used to be, the scratch marks where paintings of flowers once covered nail holes...

"That Boy Dating Your Daughter is More Than a Nuisance" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Aug. 16, 2010

Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts... (Psalm 95:8). My little girl will turn five in a week, and believe it or not, I'm looking forward to the day she starts bringing boys home.
