Luke’s account of Paul’s shipwreck on Malta provides a beautiful metaphor of the function of the church. Paul implored the sailors, “Unless every man stays with the ship, you will not be saved.” The Unexplainable Church sinks without you. Staying with the ship guarantees everyone’s safety. Fear of the Storm The storm raged on. No land […]
Do you believe you have a divine invitation? Have you discovered what it is? The story of Acts and The Unexplainable Church opens with the beautiful scene of the five leaders in the church at Antioch pausing from their work and worshipping the Lord. In the midst of this moment of praise and wonder of God, […]
Paul’s prayer in the Ephesian letter jumped off the page at me. In Ephesians 1, he breaks out in praise over what God accomplished in Christ, yet prays for every believer to fully grasp it all. In other words, Paul says, there are aspects of your salvation you have not yet realized and these are […]
I hear Christians talking about having a “calling” on our lives. Yet, it seems very few Christians know what their calling is, or if they do, don’t feel as though they have fully stepped into it. Understanding the four stages of your calling may conquer the comparison battle and empower you to move forward in […]
Why hasn’t God shown up? The Philippian Church needs Paul to answer this question. They want to know why God has not chosen to intervene in Paul’s circumstances. And if you are anything like me, you’ve got some circumstances in which you’re also wondering if and when God is going to show up! That One Time […]
I despise confrontation. Like stomach all twisted in knots, can’t sleep the night before, despise it. Scripture links hospitality with telling the whole truth. Somehow, offering hospitality in the wake of a difficult conversation opens the door to meaningful conversation. Hospitality opens the door into your world. When I confront someone, I am stepping into […]
Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, the door just won’t open. Closed doors do not always signify a work of opposition against us. Sometimes they are the divine guidance of a loving Father. The story of The Unexplainable Church tells us God opens and closes doors with great purpose. Paul needed a big lesson in […]
I Have Nothing to Offer I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard, “I’d like to be involved, but I have nothing to offer.” I understand this fear of inadequacy. It’s a lie from the enemy. You DO have something to offer, He knows if you believed in your value, we would have The Unexplainable Church. 3 […]
For years I danced my heart out at the Masquerade Ball. Wearing a mask of striving, over-achieving and performance, I hid my deep fear of inadequacy. The enemy whispered lies saying, “It’s only a matter of time. They’re going to find out you’re a fraud. You really don’t deserve the good things that are happening […]
An Army Of One As my feet hit the floor this morning, I began to dread the day. My to do list looked longer than ever and my motivation to tackle it surprisingly short. I felt like an army of one heading out onto the battlefield one more time. […]
When There Are No Words Our eyes met across the sanctuary after the service. I knew she wanted to talk. I had no idea what I was going to say. There was nothing to say. Words were inadequate. As we made our way toward one another I muttered a quick prayer, “God help me. […]
