What I Write About

I write about the infinite number of intersections between every day life and the good news of the God who has come to get us.

Jesus & Questions

The thing that has convinced me of the power of questions in living and leading is being in the gospels with Jesus. The dude asks the most profound, haunting questions that have stuck with me for hours, days, weeks, months, years.

Here are a few questions from Jesus that have lodged in my soul over the years and won't let me go:

Do you want to get well?
Who do you say that I am?
Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?
Who touched me?
Where have you laid him?
What do you want?
What is written in the law? How do you read it?

If you're someone who's never read the Bible or someone who's trying to figure out where to go in Scripture for yourself, here's a recommendation: read the gospel of John and let Jesus' questions go to work in your soul.

I agree Alex.. I think it's a matter of coming to your own conclusions. I'm actually in the book of John right now, and I'm stung by John himself and his relation to Jesus. You should check one of my earlier posts from this week.. I ramble on about John for a bit.
