Pastoral thoughts on growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

All This For Us

September 21, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

His cross does not simply proclaim rescue from sin and death. It proclaims life. It provides our way back, our restoration, our sanctification as well as our justification, because in the work of Jesus is our entire hope.... Keep Reading

Creator of It All

September 15, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

God’s power is amazing, but his omnipotence is not what primarily amazes me. What humbles me is in the midst of his power, he cares. He doesn’t just make the stars, he knows them by name. He doesn’t just make big things, he makes grains of sand.... Keep Reading

O What A Fountain

August 31, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

As the cares of the world keep assailing, as injustice and suffering abound and simple life seems to hold no intrinsic joy, we remember again by faith that Jesus has washed away every blemish, every sin, and covered us in his righteousness. And for a moment, just a moment, we again splash in the cleansing flood, we are free in the clean waters that he has bathed us in.... Keep Reading

You Go Before Us

August 24, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

When our path led only to condemnation and destruction, Jesus was strong and courageous. Jesus, our Joshua, obeyed the Father perfectly. He took on the world, the flesh, and the devil… and, through suffering and death, won. His blood covers our sin. His righteousness is ours forever. Simply by trusting in him. ... Keep Reading

The Anchor

August 17, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

Focus on the right promise. Be assured. Your anchor will hold. No matter how troubled life gets, no matter how ingloriously you fail, your anchor will hold. Your deliverer delivers. Your savior saves. Rest in the arms of the one who really has done it all for you.... Keep Reading

Great Is Your Faithfulness

August 4, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

Sometimes it takes the darkest moments to understand where light is found. Difficulty can sound so mundane. In 586 B.C. Babylon came and conquered Judah, destroying Jerusalem, tearing down the walls, the city, the temple. That doesn’t sound so bad, really, until you read the poems of the lament. They bring to life the real tragedy, t... Keep Reading

Homeland

June 23, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

Be patient, James says in 5:8. “Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.” That’s the answer to anxiety. Jesus is coming, and he is coming for you and me. Above all we seek to be with Jesus. We seek a heavenly homeland, where he is. And the calming truth is that he has promised it to us, by his strength and in his timing. ... Keep Reading

You Give More Grace

June 15, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

I am caught in the wonder of a love that loves me when I have failed, that loves me when I am weak and not strong, when I am unclean, when my wrong desires are exposed. A grace that covers me even when—especially when— I am trying to repay a debt that has already been paid.... Keep Reading

Heavenly Wisdom

June 2, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

All of a sudden, the gospel raises its head. Wisdom that is outside of you. Wisdom that is from above. Wisdom that isn’t about your attaining, working on yourself, building yourself, obtaining for yourself. It is beautiful and selfless and wonderful. This wisdom actually doesn’t sound like you or me at all. It sounds like a different person altogether. Heavenly Wisdom. Could this be Jesus?... Keep Reading

Tongue Untamed

May 25, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 1 Comments

But we know where life is found, where wholeness actually is. It is at Calvary. It is there that the perfect one paid for our sin, where he demonstrated his love for sinners like us. Our failure, his perfection. Our sin, his righteousness. What an amazing exchange.... Keep Reading

There's a Love

May 18, 2017 | by: Pastor Dax | 0 Comments

Trusting Jesus is the opposite of self-evaluating fear because trusting Jesus is abandoning hope in myself and trusting in what Jesus has done. Trusting that he means it when he says he loves me, he died for me, he pursued me, he actually likes me. Right now.... Keep Reading
