Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Gene Kranz helped shape the American space program and remained a key player in it for three decades. He became flight director of NASA’s Mission Control, which means he participated in the Mercury program through the Gemini program to the last Apollo mission, accepting President John F. Kennedy’s commitment to land a man on the moon before the end of …

7/30/19– Signed

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

When it comes to works of art, there are copies and there are signed originals. Which is more valuable? Signed originals! An original work that contains the signature of its artist is not forged or faked. It is the real deal. The artist’s signature is saying two things. This belongs to me, and I can do what I want with …

7/29/19– Triggers

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

A trigger is something that, when activated, a reaction happens. A button on your phone screen, when pushed, triggers a reaction. Circumstances in your daily life also serve as triggers. The dog won’t stop barking and it triggers your anger. Your Instagram post isn’t liked as much as you want, and it triggers feelings of low self worth. Hurricanes and …

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Here is a three-minute video that offers one of the best explanations I’ve heard to the question: What is the difference between LORD and Lord, when I’m reading my Bible? Enjoy it.

I admit that my faith is like a roller coaster. I see myself in Peter first walking on water (faith) then sinking in it (fear) (Matthew 14:22-33). Within a few minutes, this disciple ascends to the heights of discipleship, then plunges to the depths of doubt and despair. Have you been there? Are you there today? How can we live …

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Is there such a thing as a meaningless word? Words like “emergency” or “stop” or “winner” demand much more attention than words like “asparagus” or “follicle.” But the word “asparagus” could answer the question, “Which of the items on this plate is laced with rat poison?” That gives is much more meaning. There is no such thing as a meaningless word. Wrong words hurt …

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Joseph kept his clothes on. It’s that simple. Here’s the true story from Genesis 39. His brothers hated him and sold him as a slave, and eventually he ended up serving a man in Egypt named Potiphar. Well, Potiphar noticed Joseph’s exceptional abilities, and he promoted him, and promoted him again, until Joseph was the head of the household. But …

7/22/19– No Leftovers

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

“For the person who has everything.”  That phrase usually precedes a gag gift of some kind that, assuredly, a person who has everything does not yet have. And does not need. Because that person has everything. Complicated? Then try this on for size. God owns everything, including the clothes hanging in your closet, the cars parked in your garage, your …
