Crucified to Life - Final Front Cover
“Crucified to Life” Front Cover

My next book, Crucified to Life is going to be released on February 7th. This is the front cover of the book. 

In Crucified to Life, I lay out, not a deeper Christianity, but the Christianity that we all should know. But unfortunately, many of us have settled for something different. We have misunderstood grace, we have misunderstood the good news. We have let the Gospel stop at God saving us from Hell. And, yet, it is much more than that. The work that God has done and is doing is more than that and it is my hope and prayer that through this book, more people will discover what abundant life in Christ looks like.

See the Dirt, Breathe the Air

A Reflection on Genesis 2:7

“Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.” – Genesis 2:7

See the Dirt, Breathe the Air: a reflection on Genesis 2:7

Things were good but incomplete. The groundwork was laid for the climax of the scene. God had been busy speaking, painting, writing, creating. With every breath, life sprang forth from His mouth. In an instant, nothingness became something-ness.

Jesus said that the devil came to steal, kill, and destroy, but that He came to give us life abundantly (John 10:10). But I wonder how many Christians really think they are living a life that is anything close to abundant. And this is why I wrote my upcoming book, Crucified to Life: What Abundant Life in Christ Really Looks Like.

27 Things I’ve Learned From 27 Years of Existence

From the School of Hard Knocks

Today I turned 27. It’s the oldest I’ve ever been. And as I think about getting closer to the dreaded age of 30 (at least for me), many things have come to mind. The biggest thing that comes to mind is the fact that I have so far to go. I’m nowhere near where I want to be as a follower of Christ, as a husband, as a father, as a pastor, as a friend, and as a writer.

27 Things I've Learned From 27 Years of Existence

But another thing comes to mind – I’ve learned some things along the way. I always try to be a voracious learner. And maybe, just maybe, something in this list of 27 things I’ve learned from 27 years of existence will connect with you.

TAL: The Reality of 132 Million Children Will Break Your Heart

The Abundant Life with Brandon Kelley

This is painful to research. It is even more painful to share. I’m sure it is even more painful to hear. But research, share, hear, and do something, we must. The heartbreaking reality of 132 million children is that they are orphans. Young and without parents, many are homeless, starving, and end up dying very young.
