The vast majority of people in our churches have a second-hand spirituality, i.e. they live off the spirituality of others.

Second-Hand Spirituality

Because people attend our weekend worship services, participate in our programs, give money and serve, we assume they are in a vital personal relationship of loving union with Jesus. We assume wrong. They are not. "Love Does" by David Skidmore. I spent a lot of time over the past eight years of my life looking for love.

"Love Does" by David Skidmore

Love is such a powerful force. There’s something so special about love, that we read books and blogs about love, go to movies about love, talk with our friends about love, and spend time daydreaming about love. In my search for love, I missed something important about love. My life changed when my friend, Kyler placed the book, Love Does, in my hands. Bob Goff, the author says that love doesn’t do well when it stays locked in our minds. It is simple isn’t it? “Love is patient, love is kind. Jesus says in John 13:34-34, The Four Lessons of Losing - Life Without Limbs. Jeff Wood "My Story" with Dr. Kim. Why Can’t We Slow Down?

The Underwoods: "Pregnancy and Redemption" Good Friday: A Time to Embrace Our Endings. On Good Friday we remember that at the cross Jesus wipes away our sins, becoming a global magnet that draws the whole world to Himself.

Good Friday: A Time to Embrace Our Endings

Good Friday also reminds me that embracing endings (deaths) and new beginnings (resurrections) is the pattern of life for every Christian. Nothing new takes place without an ending. A real ending—a final death—often feels like disintegration, falling apart, a coming undone. It feels that way because that is what death is.

The Underwood's: "Relationship Before Marriage" He Walked a Mile in Our Shoes. The Newlyweds: "Where Do You Want Your Marriage To Be In The Near Future" Learning to Pay Attention. I crossed an important threshold last Sunday.

Learning to Pay Attention

In my sermon on Psalm 23, I called our people to practice five minutes of silence/stillness before the Lord each day (i.e. Centering Prayer). I was clear, unapologetic, and passionate. Why? I am absolutely convinced that unless we help our people encounter God through Scripture and silence, it is virtually impossible for them to grow spiritually. Psalm 23 is a brilliant text, reminding us that we are sheep, unable to find safe pastures, discover good waters, rest without guidance, and defend ourselves.

We must acknowledge the tragic reality that most of our people are living off other people’s spirituality and not developing their personal relationship with Jesus. I spend 20 minutes every morning in Centering Prayer before God as part of my morning prayer. Learning the discipline of paying attention is a necessary muscle for prayer and the Christian life (See Simon Weil’s excellent Waiting for God). The Underwood's: "David's Story" Walking Into a Trap. Iffy. "4 Secrets Before 'I DO' Part 3" BY Jeff Anderson. I’m back and ready to share another truth about an awesome marriage.

"4 Secrets Before 'I DO' Part 3" BY Jeff Anderson

That “sanctifying love” talk had me weak for a moment (hyperlink). But my knees have recovered and I’m on my feet again. Let’s move on to Truth #3. Truth #3: Separate – Husbands (and wives, too) leave their mother and father. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife (v31) Marriage will not be awesome with momma in the way. My friend had a marriage blow up because his wife was unable to leave her mother. Meanwhile, I’m watching another marriage suffer because of the husband’s inability to keep his parents at bay.

In both cases, the unwillingness to separate was a central problem. Don't Stay Silent. Secrets to an Awesome Marriage "Setting the Standard" Characteristics of the Emotionally Unhealthy Leader.

Characteristics of the Emotionally Unhealthy Leader

Zeke the Turtle. The Three Greatest Dangers in Planning and Decision Making.

We make plans and decisions every day as leaders. Three great dangers, however, often torpedo our best intentions and efforts: We Define Success Too Narrowly In churches, we tend to define success by such things as attendance, finances (giving, meeting or exceeding budget, etc.), decisions for Christ, baptisms, numbers participating in small groups or other ministry programs, etc. If we work for a non-profit or in the marketplace, we might measure increased market share, program expansion, or numbers of people served.

When the numbers are up, we’re successful; when the numbers are down, we’re not. Numbers can be valid as a measure of fruitfulness for God, but using numbers to define success is not without its dangers. Maulana Tariq Jameel Bayan Dil Badal De Part 2.

Google Image Result for. Connecting Our Inner and Outer Lives as Leaders. A tree with a shallow root system may still look beautiful on the outside, but it is incapable of supplying the water and nutrients for fruitful, long-term, and upward growth.

This becomes a significant problem when our ministries and organizations grow larger and faster than the depth of our roots can sustain. Deep and wide roots anchor a tree, allowing it to draw up plentiful water and nutrients from a larger and deeper area of soil. In many cases, the root systems of our spiritual lives are inadequate for the challenges of shaping and leading a growing church, organization, or team. At the same time, it seems logical that a deeper inner life should lead to good organizational practices.

Sadly, however, it often does not. In The Emotionally Healthy Leader (Zondervan, 2015), I examine specific ways the nutrients and water from the roots of the tree actually inform the critical areas (or branches) of leadership.

Marriage 911: "Reframe Your Marriage" Pastor Robert Davis — I Want an Awesome Marriage.

"The Discontented life: Comparison Traps" by Jennifer Zabel — I Want an Awesome Marriage. Paul, of the bible, really had it all figured out in the area of comparing. In Philippians 4:11, he says “not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have.” This is a man who suffered greatly on earth, having been imprisoned falsely, shipwrecked three times, and beaten and ridiculed for his proclamation of the Good News and faith in Jesus.

Despite his many hardships, he found himself contented, full of joy and peace. I don’t know about you, but I long for the kind of spiritual maturity that Paul exhibited. While there may be tiny glimpses of true contentment in different areas of my life from time to time, I seriously have a long way to go.

Unfortunately, I have noticed four prominent areas that I continually struggle with, the first being Physical Comparison.

You may be saying, “What does this verse have to do with comparison?” But I gasped when the Lord led me to this place in the bible. He impressed the subject of comparison on my heart several months ago and has woven the topic into my conversations with good friends and my husband, often. So, it was not surprising when he had the perfect verse to sum up the things we have been discussing as of late.

Let me attempt to explain. We live in a world today that is very “in your face”. To take it a step further, our “in your face” world is becoming an increasingly “fabricated” world. Now, this one may sting, but the phony sense of financial security that we are trying to portray to others is just that, phony.
