Crucified to Life - Final 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.
