There’s no question that the New Testament teaches that there will be various degrees of reward in the future kingdom. But it’s important that we don’t make the mistake (as many have) of elaborating on them beyond Scripture and codifying them into some sort of ironclad system. Scripture doesn’t give us details about this aspect of the kingdom. Although it certainly does teach rewards. For example, For no one can lay any foundation other than what is being laid, which… Read more

My friend Phil Cooke has come out with a new book co-authored with Jonathan Bock called The Way Back: How Christians Blew Our Credibility and How We Get It Back. I caught up with Phil to talk about his new book. Enjoy! As all authors know, readers have limited time and limited money. So when they want to know what an author’s book is about, what they are really asking is, “How does your book benefit me? Why do I… Read more

Gossip is a problem among many Christians. Amy Tori has written a guest article about gossip in the workplace. Enjoy! — Gossip in the workplace doesn’t always have malicious intent, as some of it can revolve around company news, curiosity and rumors. Regardless, gossiping in general comes with many consequences. It can spread throughout the workplace and have a lasting negative impact. To show just how toxic gossip can be, here are a dozen business owners to explain the various… Read more

The other day I was reading Luke 18, the beginning parable. Here’s what the Lord said, Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ 4 “For some time he… Read more

This is a guest post by Amy Tori on six Instagram tips for Christians. — With social media becoming more and more utilized in today’s society, it is becoming increasingly easier for different types of people to share their content and view that of others.

It’s hard being out front. Mainly because when you create something new, it’s unfamiliar to the masses. While mastermind groups are incredibly popular (and very dear) to the world of high-level entrepreneurs — pastors, teachers, missionaries, seminary professors, life-coaches, and others in ministry don’t know much about them. So their first response is to shrug their shoulders when hearing about a “mastermind” event. They immediately equate it with a pastor’s network gathering, a leadership seminar, a “support” group, or just… Read more

In 2010, Leonard and I released Jesus Manifesto. Then in 2012, we published Jesus: Theography, which we call “the big Jesus book” (it’s over a 400+ paged hardcover). Then in 2016, we published Jesus Speaks, which is a unique and comprehensive look at how to recognize the Lord’s voice. Here are the books in the Jesus Trilogy – the Theography is deeply discounted right now Jesus Manifesto (Thomas Nelson, 2010) Jesus: A Theography (Thomas Nelson, 2012) – only $1.99 on Kindle right… Read more

Check out my new series on the kingdom of God. Today we stand on the edge of a new frontier—one of exploration, not fortification. One of discovery, not contentment. In this new frontier, we will navigate the unchartered waters of Jesus Christ, our all-sufficient Lord. There is so much more of Christ to sail than we could ever imagine. But if the truth be told, we have been handed a shrink-wrapped Jesus. Christ has become our once-a-week Mascot. We rally… Read more

If you follow mainstream Christianity, you undoubtedly have heard about the Internet conference called the Nines. Leadership Network kindly invited me to speak at the Nines in 2012, but the invitation came at a bad time. I was overwhelmed with a pending writing deadline and I was traveling and speaking at other events. So I wasn’t able to accept the invitation. I heard that Sweet also declined it the same year. After that, I’ve never heard about the NINES. I… Read more
