Watch For the Owner

Have you ever been house-sitting? Someone, probably a relative, goes on vacation and so they ask you to watch over the house, get their mail, and feed their dog. Of course, the owner never would have asked this of you if they didn’t think you were responsible. The owner is coming back to the house at some point, and this person has the hope that the house will still be standing when they return. As a house sitter you are expected to act in such a way that prepares for the owner’s happy return. Jesus uses this image to teach […]

Sin causes all kinds of problems, there are all kinds of negative effects. One of these effects is damage to our moral compass. The Bible describes people “whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron” (1 Timothy 4:2). Perhaps you have noticed that the first time you do some specific wrong thing feels a lot worse than the second time. That’s conscience damage. I’m sure some consciences are damaged so much that “wrong” doesn’t even register anymore. However, there are many others who are not there yet. People who desire to do good. People who still know that […]

Imagine you are at a birthday party, and someone comes out dressed as a mime. He has on white gloves, a striped shirt, and white makeup on his face. When you see the way he’s dressed you have certain expectations on how he is going to act. You figure you’re going to see him try to silently get out of an imaginary glass box, right? However, as soon as the man comes out he immediately starts talking and telling jokes. So part of your brain calls out: “this isn’t right! That’s not what someone dressed as a mime is supposed […]

Have you ever heard the phrase “it’s all or nothing”? I think people say that line when the commitment in front of them has to be a total commitment. You want to go skydiving? Well . . . I think you’re crazy. But there’s no question that a total commitment to the activity is required when you’re thousands of feet up in a plane. You can either jump or not jump. It’s all or nothing. I’m not sure how my wife will feel about me putting this in the same paragraph as skydiving, but marriage is also a total commitment. […]

In a time where more of our brothers and sisters in Christ are participating in mission work, the Elders are pleased to announce that Lincoln Park is involved in helping the Christians and non Christians of Nicaragua. Our brother Javier Cuarezma and his wife Isabel have worked tirelessly to organize a group to help with this work. The following families have committed to offering their help in any way that’s needed: Christopher, Annalise, Elitta & Cyler Middleton, Judy Stewart, Deron & Suzanne Smith. What a wonderful opportunity for each of them to work with Christians from other churches of Christ […]

It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8 In one of his books, the late Kentucky writer, Jesse Stuart, tells about his first teaching job. The school apparently was not far from his home, but to get there he had to walk through a field of weeds. On the very first day he was to go to the school, he noticed that the high weeds were dripping with dew. To walk through the weeds would be to ruin his […]

Why Oppose a Christian?

I am often fascinated by the attitude that unbelievers have toward Christians. Not that this attitude is any surprise to God: “Do not be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you” (1 John 3:13). I’m glad that’s in there because I have a hard time not being surprised. I was reading the other day about how Chick-fil-A treated an exhausted homeless man asking for scraps. I suppose the manager must have been a Christian because he asked if he could pray for the man. Which he did – and then fed him a lunch off the menu. Awesome story, […]
