12/17/19– Habits

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Habits aren’t for weak people. Habits aren’t for super-disciplined people. Habits are for everybody. Even God. Jesus made it a habit to spend time with his Father. Can you imagine the divine conversations between God the Father and God the Son during these moments? What needs did Jesus have? What questions did he ask? What did he need help with? …

But the real plot of the series: these guys are just Average Joes – good guys with great hearts, average looks, and some even describing themselves as nerds.

Who in the Bible would have said the following about God? “His dominion is an eternal dominion; His kingdom endures from generation to generation.

Cautious yet confident. That’s how the weather man predicted the arrival of the winter’s first snow storm. He told it like it would be. Six to ten inches of snow. Take precautions. Get shovels out of storage and snow blowers filled with gas. Be ready for slow travel. But his forecast wasn’t alarming. He wasn’t uncontrollably anxious. Cautious yet confident. …

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

Christmas, they say, is a season when wishes come true. Ha, we only wish that were true! We could make a long list of wishes unfulfilled.

“Jesus did not want anyone to know where they were” (Mark 9:30). He wasn’t in search of fame. He didn’t need to be great. He didn’t get uptight when he wasn’t popular. For the disciples, though, fame and greatness were significant. One theme of Mark’s gospel is that each time Jesus announces his pending suffering and death, the disciples respond improperly …
