Glossing over sin never heals

By Dave Henning / March 20, 2024

“Glossing over sin never heals inward shame. . . .  Downplaying sin is an ill-applied salve.  When there’s no honest admission of sin accompanied by authoritative, Jesus-centered forgiveness, condemnation broods. . . .  Jesus, the Eternal Word, the one who stood in heavenly glory, . . stooped.  He took on a body of dust like […]

Envision your sin erased

By Dave Henning / March 19, 2024

“Jesus doesn’t invite you to downplay your sin or implore you to brood over it.  He invites you to envision your sin erased by His intervention.  Hie invites you to see as He does — He sees the depths of your sin and then sees your sin no more.”- Alan Wright In Chapter 5 (“Repenting: […]

A practice for a lifetime

By Dave Henning / March 18, 2024

His assignments = privileges

By Dave Henning / March 17, 2024

“When we see ourselves through Jesus’ eyes, His assignments start feeling less like burdens and more like privileges. . . .  The more I see myself through Jesus’ eyes, the more I see Him as my helper, not vice versa. . . .  And because He delights in me, He lets me work on some […]

Future fruitfulness – provision

By Dave Henning / March 16, 2024

“God not only has provision for our current emptiness, but He also has provision for our future fruitfulness.  We become ‘creative’ not by creating from scratch but by seeing what we haven’t previously seen.”- Alan Wright “When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do […]

Nearsightedness – overlooking

By Dave Henning / March 15, 2024

“The trouble with nearsightedness is we don’t know what we might be overlooking.  If we can’t see it, it’s as if it isn’t there, as far as we know.  That’s why we need to ask Jesus every day to show us the treasures of His grace.  The Lord is eager to open our eyes to […]

A transaction with God?

By Dave Henning / March 14, 2024

“[The do to be tree] is a ruse that blinds and blurs because it shifts us from a relationship with God to a transaction with God.  Whenever we believe that we will be blessed (more loved by God) because of something we do, we become much less like God, and we lose sight of our […]

Seeing is what matters

By Dave Henning / March 12, 2024

“No amount of self-talk or willpower can change us if we are seeing things incorrectly.  Our good intentions and vows to be better don’t make us better. . . .  Seeing is what matters.  What we see.  How we see.  If we see.”- Alan Wright (emphasis author’s) “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he […]

Concrete fact – the Resurrection

By Dave Henning / March 10, 2024

“The Resurrection, not taken as a symbol but believed as concrete fact, will lift up the downtrodden, and will change the world.  Belief in a final judgement gives us enough hope so that we will neither resort to violence to bring in justice nor give in and collaborate with injustice.”- Timothy Keller Timothy Keller concludes […]

How did he do this?  He did so as ‘our champion.’ “- Timothy Keller “[God] made the champion of their salvation perfect through what he suffered.”- Hebrews 2:10 (Pastor Keller’s translation) Timothy Keller moves on in Chapter 8 of Making Sense of God as he talks […]
