Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

How loud could a new set of Bose speakers boom if there were no highest number on the volume control? What would a Thanksgiving turkey look like if you never took it out of a 375 degree oven, ever? Which professional sports teams would dominate without a salary cap? The idea of limitlessness blows our minds. So when Christians talk …

Ultrasound Faith

Gender reveal parties celebrate what ultrasound technology allows us to see. Without an ultrasound, Abraham and Sarah knew the gender of their miracle baby, and much more.

(Note: pronounce this name zuh-KEE-us; sing if you want) Zacchaeus was a wee little man, And a wee little man was he. He climbed up in a sycamore tree For the Lord he wanted to see. And as the Savior passed that way He looked up in the tree and he said, “Zacchaeus you come down, For I’m going to …

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

I’m still perfecting the art and science of prayer. I don’t think I’ll ever arrive at complete achievement this side of heaven. But here’s what I find. When I work on prayer, giving it time, attention and practice, practice, practice—I get a little better at it. So here’s something I studied today that really helps me, and maybe it can …

11/13/19– The Way

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

It’s a beautiful autumn, windows-open kind of day. You’re minding a few things around the house, and the football game is buzzing in the background with the noises of the crowd and commentators. Your doorbell rings, and shortly afterwards you hear pounding on your door. You curiously open the door and see God standing on your doorstep. “You need to leave …

11/12/19– The Good Fight

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

The battery in my watch died. I decided to change the battery myself so I watched a YouTube video, then I went to the store with the old battery and compared it to a wall of watch batteries, many of them very similar to mine. None matched perfectly. I made my best guess. I opened the back of my watch …

11/11/19– Yes and Amen

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Do you know what the word “Amen” means? It refers to a truth to be believed. Imagine thrusting your fist in the air and saying confidently, “Yes!” This is our response to God’s faithfulness in keeping his promises to save, provide, make good, and deliver from all evil into eternity. “Faithful you are. Faithful forever you will be.” More than facts, …

Leave Behind And Look To The Lord

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

What would you think if God showed up at your door and ordered you to flee the country. It’s an emergency! Abraham did that. He left behind a lot, but found much more. 

11/8/19– Keep Calm

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

T-shirts say “Keep Calm and Eat Bacon,” bumper stickers say “Keep Calm and Kill Zombies,” and Houston’s new tourism campaign is “Keep Calm and Paddle.” Where did all this “Keep Calm and…” business come from? A motivational slogan of the British government preparing for the Second World War. The Ministry of Information created a propaganda campaign expecting an air attack by the …

11/7/19– You Can’t Have Everything

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Gordon Stewart, a 74-year-old retired cabinet maker, would pedal his bike around the neighborhood picking up cardboard boxes and bags full of junk. When neighbors hadn’t seen him in several days they called police. Officers broke in to find a house so full of trash that the only way into it was literally digging tunnels through the filth. The stench …
