Good Dirt

GOD DIDN’T SAVE US TO JUST GO TO CHURCH, sit in a pew, listen, and leave.

Many professing Christians don’t even do that.

He expects us to be good dirt, producing something.

Some don’t understand God’s Word so they don’t obey, ever, and go back to their vomit.

Others get excited about Jesus, worship, and fellowship, but don’t read the Bible to apply knowledge, so when stuff hits the fan, they fall away.

Limping to Heaven


Can’t help it. Arthritis.

But most likely, it’s from years of wrestling with God.

“Grown up pastors walk with a limp,” writes Jerod Wilson.

“They’ve had their feet knocked out from under them at some point and discovered that God is still good all the time.

“Grown up pastors know that the gospel is the only power to save, and that it is of first importance, so in their maturity they’ve grown weary of putting on airs or putting on shows or putting on millstones.”

I’m still growing up.
