Shadows: Church

Pride-filled people lose the ability to learn and grow.  This can happen in church so easily. Pride-filled eyes.  “I’ve seen it all before.” I’ve read the Bible 40 times…so there is really nothing new that I learn at church.

Shadows: Love

How can love have a shadow side? In Christian circles, lust is known as a sin.  And most of us would probably say that it is wrong. The problem is that society often doesn’t. In fact, it celebrates it.

Shadows: Doing Good

How can Doing Good be bad? Are you filling your ministry and your life with busyness that masks for doing good?  Getting distracted by both the people and the details that get in your way?  Are you going through the motions of “should be”s and “have to”s?

Shadows: Prayer

If God answered your prayer, would it only benefit you?”  Most of us would reflexively say, “No.”  But really think about it.  So many of us default toward praying for selfish gain. If all you do at this point is pray for yourself, great.  But realize that this can turn into a negative very quickly…like a shadow side because the focus so quickly becomes all about you.

Shadows: Following Jesus

If you have started following Christ with your life then you are at war.  You have a target on your back.  You are under attack.  There is a cloud or a shadow that is always following you trying to snuff out the light of Jesus Christ in your life.
