Hide the Word in Your Heart

 One of the challenges I want you to join me in this summer is memorizing scripture. As we walk through Colossians, I want you to pick one verse from each week’s reading plan and commit it to memory. Filling your mind with scripture is like saving money for a rainy day: When it’s needed, it’s right there. As you find 10 verses to memorize over the course of the summer,…

True Not True

Even in the earliest days of the Church after the Holy Spirit came to live within those who trust Jesus, the Church had to guard against false teachings put forward by passionate, convincing heretics. These false teachers were called Gnostics (pronounced “nah-stick”) and taught that to be truly enlightened a person needed a special, higher knowledge that could only be…

What You Really Need

Good communication is at the root of every intimate relationship we have. This is also true for our relationship with Jesus. Our soul desperately needs to hear his spiritual voice. In fact, we can’t follow Jesus or really know him without this. When we (and our kids) begin to experience Jesus speaking through the Holy Spirit and the Word, our relationship with him comes…

Thank You for Showing Me How to Hear God

Not too long ago, I got a letter from one of my daughters. She’s in her 20’s, in college now and all grown up. (Assuming I keep sending her money!) Her note to me was kind and encouraging, expressing her gratitude to me for being her dad. It was the kind of letter you save instead of reading and throwing away.  The most meaningful thing she said was, “Thanks for…

Making the Most of Summer

Summer has a way of derailing us spiritually. Everything seems to loosen up a little and our normal schedules and pace slack up. The problem can be that our pursuit of Jesus can slack up, too, and that’s a never a good thing. Our next teaching series will focus on Making the Most of Summer. We’ll look at ways you can simply but intentionally keep walking with Jesus, so…

Hitting a Home Run

Have you ever worked really hard for something, hoping for a big success, and when the final results are in you’re blown away? That’s what Easter weekend was like for our CrossBridge family. So many of you came “backstage” to give Easter away to our community and it was a home run! Between our four services (Friday-Sunday) we had 3,200 people participate—wow! We know of…

I’ve Never Done this Before

This Easter, I want to bring you backstage with me. Instead of being part of the “audience,” would you be part of the cast this year? No audition needed—you’re perfect for the part. Here’s what you do… Read Luke 15. My Easter message will be the retelling of the lost sheep, the lost coin, the lost son, the lost brother. Read this chapter several times and pray for…

The Astonishing Jesus

Everybody who got close to Jesus was astonished by him. Makes sense, right?…His power, love, wisdom, compassion, focus, and courage simply blew people away. What’s really crazy to consider is the same Holy Spirit living in Jesus, by whom Jesus did all that he did, lives in us! The same astonishing Holy Spirit is spiritually inside everyone who trusts in Jesus,…

A Great Place to Raise your Family

More and more as I look at CrossBridge, I see us as a great place to raise a family. We’ve got people in our church that represent every single life stage, but one of our biggest segments is young families. When I walk in on Sundays and when I go to life groups, I see a fellowship of people who genuinely care about the next generation—and the challenge parents have in…
