Consider This | God’s Patience | “I love Jesus, but…”

American Christianity has caught a bad virus. It is deadly, but there is a cure. The​ biggest​ problem ​in avoiding this disease ​is that ​it actually makes an ​afflicted person feel better, so few are eager to consult the Great Physician. Though patient beyond understanding, even God cannot heal a person who refuses His treatment. This infection ​begins…

Consider This | God’s Patience | Pushing the Limits

Samson had always known he was special. God had selected him before birth to be the next judge over Israel. He was the golden child, He was anointed, and He was invincible. And he was a colossal mess. Handsome, charming, he loved the thrill of high danger and low women. Because he had God’s call…

Consider This | God’s Patience | Abusing Patience

“I’m God’s little prodigal princess,” Laylah giggled as she finished recounting her story of drunkenness, immorality, and deceit. She shrugged, “I mean I’ve been a Christian since, like…forever. I’ve run off from Him over and over, but He keeps taking me back.” Pastor Jack nodded slowly as he studied her. “Prodigal princess, heh? Cute. So,…

Consider This | God’s Patience | The Jezebel Among Us

They called her Jessie. Leader of Women’s Ministry at Thyatira Chapel, she was both compelling and intimidating. Flamboyant style coupled with her mantra of “Freedom in Christ,” she had made quite an impact. Before long, the young women were uploading “Rock that Thong” photos with Bible verses plastered across bare buttocks. The men “appreciated the…

Consider This | God’s Patience | What is He Waiting For?

“Why doesn’t Jesus come back? Why is it taking so long?”  If we’ve walked with the Lord for any length of time, we’ve asked those questions. The final Day of the Lord was promised way back in Old Testament times. When Jesus came the first time, He talked about it like it was right around…

Consider This | While Waiting | Be Still

“Be still!” Cara hissed at her toddler. “It’s not time to go yet.” Kaylie twisted around until she had slid off her mother’s lap and melted into a puddle on the floor.  “I wanna go,” she wailed. “They got to go.” She pointed at the departing backs of her friends’ parents. Cara shook her head.…

Consider This | While Waiting | Persist

Ed Kimball laid his head in his hands and sighed. Teaching teenage boys in Sunday school was often a thankless job. Yet, God had called him to it, so he persisted. It was Dwight who frustrated him the most. Eighteen, a Unitarian, Dwight only attended church because his uncle, also his boss, required it for…

Consider This | While Waiting | Patient Endurance

“I used to be a Christian,” said Greg. “I was really into it for a while, but other things caught my attention and pretty soon I was back to my old ways.” His neighbor nodded. “Lots of people in your shoes,” he said. “Have you considered that it is unlikely that you ever were a…

Consider This | While Waiting | “Helping” God

“God said what? A baby! Abe, are you serious?” Sarah struggled out of her recliner and leaned heavily on her cane. “But we’re…y’know…old and you’re…well…” She shrugged and lifted a skeptical gray brow. Abraham shook his head slowly. “I know, but that’s what He said. A son for us. I can hardly believe it, but…

Consider This | While Waiting | Why Wait?

Waiting rooms. Being put on hold. School drop-off lines. The world gives us zillions of opportunities to wait. On a good day, we might surprise ourselves with how patient we can be. We know we don’t have a choice, so might as well have a good attitude. But there is another kind of waiting that…
