Kristen Talbot won a spot on the U.S. women’s speed skating team in the 1994 winter Olympics. To be an Olympic speed skater she had to stay on a rigid practice and training schedule; any interruption threatened her chance for a gold medal. Yet that’s exactly what Kristen did when, only weeks before she was scheduled to compete, she donated …

Here’s What You Don’t Know

One of the best ways to remain positive during the storms and troubles of life is to read the end of the story. God’s story about us. It says: “We win!”  Jesus clearly teaches that after he rises from the dead and ascends to heaven, he will rule all things from there. At some point, he will physically return to …

The Repentance of Lent

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

In case you missed it during a stormy week, the season of Lent has begun. Lent is a Christian season that focuses our hearts on the frailty of human nature, and the saving strength of Jesus Christ.

How Romantic Is God?

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

How romantic is God?  Well, God designed love and he practices is perfectly.

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 …

How romantic is God? He calls himself a lover and woos anyone in need of his grace and power. He also gets jealous. Let Jesus show you how that is a good thing.

A classic Peanuts cartoon shows Lucy convincing Linus that he can’t be a doctor because he doesn’t love mankind. He clarifies by exclaiming,  “I love mankind. It’s people I can’t stand.” We pray for world peace, cheer for our kids’ sports teams, strive for harmony in our family, and support our church but then … condemn church leaders who didn’t …
