More People Are Going to Heaven!

     Do you remember that last week I told you that 100 CrossBridgers were going out in two different teams? One to Reynosa and one to the Southside of San Antonio. I had asked you to join me in covering these teams in prayer because it’s not just in the “going” that God works, but also in the “praying.” Both teams are back now and…

Two Teams Heading Out

     This weekend, we’re sending out 100 people in two teams to bring the love of Jesus to people. One team heads to Reynosa to build two homes and be servants of the people living in a colonia on the banks of the Rio Grande, just inside the Mexican border. Another team, called Kindle, heads to a Southside trailer park to host a sports camp and a Back Yard Bible…

The Cool Thing about Acts

     The cool thing about the book of Acts is that God’s heart is still burning for the nations with the same intensity as it was in the first century. With the coming of the Holy Spirit, the kingdom of God began its unstoppable advance with simple but powerful formula: The Holy Spirit comes, the Gospel is shared, people are saved from the judgement of God against…

A New Kind of Kindle

     Hundreds of CrossBridgers have been on a mission team at one time or another that travelled to Reynosa, Rwanda or some other country to be the hands and feet of Jesus. One of our dreams has been to have an in-town mission trip that was as immersive as our international ones. That’s why I’m more than excited to tell you about Kindle.      Kindle is a…

Just Getting Started

     This past Sunday we began our series through the Book of Acts. If you missed, you’re not behind; we’re just getting started, so jump on in.      Our walk through Acts gives you the chance to re-engage with God if you’ve wandered off in some way. Or, if you’d describe your faith walk as stagnate, Acts has the answer. The God of Acts is your God…

Wow! You’ve got to see this…

     Were you with CrossBridge last Sunday? I can’t explain our gathering in a way that will do justice to what God was revealing, but in Acts 2:47, the church is described as being in awe. I felt that this past Sunday.      I’m thinking about Nathan’s story of transformation and freedom…Shea’s picture of the scuba tanks as he described…

Annual Budget and Kids’ Conference

     Presenting our annual budget is always a fun thing for me. It honestly gives me a chance to sort of “show off” our church. Click the link and you’ll not only see how we’re investing our money in 2018, but you’ll some some of the powerful things Jesus did through us in 2017. This Sunday, we’ll affirm the budget together and thank…

Shame is a Lie

     After this past Sunday, I was thinking more about shame and I wish I’d said simply, “Shame is a lie.” That’s really what it is for those in Christ. It’s a false lens through which we view our past. It doesn’t accurately reflect reality, though, because Jesus bore our shame on the cross and we have agreed to let him.      Because…

In 2018, I resolve…

     In 2018, I resolve to fight worry every time. I will give it no quarter in 2018. When it emerges in my mind, I will not tolerate its taking the steering wheel of my “mental bus” and driving me around in useless, anxious circles. I will be watchful for the way that worry creeps up on me, luring me to compare myself with others. Comparison is the fertile…
