FIRST-PERSON: Simplify

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – In Matthew 18, the Lord’s quarreling followers asked Him, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” The Lord beckoned to a little child, whom He placed among the disciples. “Assuredly, I say to you,” Jesus said, “unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

FIRST-PERSON: Outside the gate

It was the last week of His life, and Jesus was fielding questions from critics in the temple. An angry crowd gathered around Him as one after another lost their arguments. One challenger was left: a lawyer who thought he could stump Jesus with a question for which there was seemingly no one right answer. “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” (Matthew 22:36)

FIRST-PERSON: Disruptive moments

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – Julie Thompson’s bend in the road began with the discovery of a lump. For James P. Colepepper, it was a visit from police officers who told him his “identity” had been stolen and his credit cards had been used to finance an illegal operation. For Todd Smith, it was the news that his company was filing for bankruptcy and laying off its employees.

FIRST-PERSON: Be ready

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – Today we’re one day closer to the Rapture of the Church.

FIRST-PERSON: Step forward in your faith

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – If you were a high-powered Washington attorney, the right-hand man to the President of the United States, sentenced to prison for committing a felony crime – and then had a genuine salvation experience in the midst of the chaos surrounding your personal life – what would you do after the dust had settled?

FIRST-PERSON: From head to heart

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – Let’s start with a riddle: What two partners live less than two feet apart but never meet? They’re both CEOs of vast organizations with overlapping jurisdictions; yet they remain best of friends, communicate instantly, and work in perfect coordination. Even the slightest interruption of their labors would be catastrophic, so they never sleep. Their combined efforts keep us alive and well.

FIRST-PERSON: The disciple’s path

Turn on any form of media today and you’ll find people labeling each other with pejorative terms, political epithets, and personal insults. Social media actually emboldens individuals to criticize and characterize others without regard for truth in their analysis. This is the world we live in today. But as the disciples of Christ, we have His words to follow when He said, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35). How do we demonstrate that we are His disciples? We walk in love.

FIRST-PERSON: God’s marching orders

EL CAJON, Calif (BP) – When U.S. Navy SEAL trainees are sufficiently exhausted and their minds are getting fuzzy, instructors will purposely leave out part of an order to see who is paying attention – because the goal is to teach obedience to orders. Explicit obedience. Many of the exercises involve small teams carrying a 300-pound log on their shoulders while completing the exercise. But an instructor will occasionally, when giving the order for the next exercise, leave out any reference to carrying the huge log. Team captains who note the omission lead their teams accordingly and get a brief break from carrying the log.

FIRST-PERSON: In search of a Savior

EL CAJON, Calif. (BP) – Do you remember when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem before His arrest and ultimate crucifixion? As He rode the borrowed colt through the Golden Gate of Jerusalem, a spontaneous parade developed.

FIRST-PERSON: Crowning achievements

The Bible is full of crowns. The first time the word crown appears in the Bible, it was spoken by the patriarch Jacob referring to the crown on the head of his son, Joseph, who ruled in Egypt.
