"The Sisyphus Complex" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Oct. 7, 2010

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 5:10). I used to have nightmares about King Sisyphus—not really the wake-up-in-a-sweat dreams of childhood, but more the kind of gut-punching thoughts that plague the daytime...

"A Stubborn Intolerance for Joyless Christianity" - Oct. 6, 2010

"Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food" (Habakkuk 3:17-18). Should one's relationship with the infinite and personal living God be joyless?

"Waiting in the Mine" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Oct. 1, 2010

For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life (2 Cor 5:4). What happens when rescue means you're found, but not yet free?

"Walking by Faith" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 30, 2010

Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. We live by faith, not by sight (2 Cor 5:6-7). In college, I took a course in which I was instructed to bring a blindfold to class one day...

"Your Birthday: The Most and Least Important Day of Your Life" - Sept. 28, 2010

Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3). Just before our second son, Henry, was born earlier this year I remember standing with my wife in the nursery, looking around and just taking in everything...

"When I Grow Up" - Crosswalk the Devotional - Sept. 23, 2010

Instead, you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, then we will live and also do this or that (James 4: 5). "You can be anything you want when you grow up, sweetie..."

"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...
