Is Kim Davis right about her rights? Are we right about Kim Davis?

September 08, 2015

I think it great sin to fire public shots at members of Christ’s family and pray for increased faithfulness among us to “love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again” (1 Peter 1:22b-23a).

With that said, I want to ‘think out loud’ about the situation with Kim Davis. She is a follower of Christ, who apparently experienced the gospel of grace in her own marital history and is seeking to live out that grace by taking a stand in her job for the biblical teaching on marriage. Sadly, Kim remains in prison for contempt of court (now released today since this posting, PTL), following her decision not to issue marriage certificates to same-sex couples in Grayson, Kentucky. ( As a Christ follower, she has refused to obey the ‘law of the land’ and issue (or allow her staff to issue) marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Is Kim Davis doing the right thing, in doing what she thinks is right and asserting her constitutional right to protest in a way she believes is right in the eyes of God?

That’s the point, isn’t it? What “rights” are we talking about? Biblically-minded people who object to June’s Supreme Court Obergefell v. Hodges ruling may find comfort in the stand she is taking and the resistance she is giving, but still not be convinced they would/should do the same thing. Again, just thinking out loud here . . .

Matt Redman and the Privilege of Serving Jesus

August 12, 2015

Take a few minutes and work through this post. I am praying it will stir fresh affection for Jesus and for serving Him with your whole heart.

“Do not withhold good, from whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.” Proverbs 3:27

Failing to honor those who serve well among us is a great failure indeed. It fails to show gratitude, fails to highlight the value of faithfulness, and fails to inspire others to serve with the same dedication. I’m gonna try to avoid that error right now . . .

God Will Not Forget—Don’t Forget It! 

July 24, 2015

Hebrews 6:10: For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints.

It’s summer, and vacation that is much needed and well deserved is happening for many people in ministry. This is a good time of year to pay attention to your own soul and look to the treasured Scriptures and disciplines that have sustained you thus far in your service to Christ and His church. I am writing to encourage you today.
