THIS WEEK, I’m honored to be the featured VIDEO over at CreativeMondays.net! Headed up by the amazing Tim Noxsinz, I got connected to the #CreativeMondays community several months ago and feel humbled to be their first feature of the new year. I’m constantly amazed at the amount of talent and creativity in this crew. You can connect with them via Twitter on the #CreativeMondays open space, or on their website!
This past Sunday, our worship team used this video to intro Matt Redman's song, Never Once. If you haven't heard it, it's a beautiful declaration of how God carries us and walks with us through victories and battlefields alike. Rather than just sing it over the congregation, I decided to put together some scriptures, with video clips of our own people who have walked with God through some dark times. Although it's just the tip of the iceberg, we are surrounded by believers who have first-hand experience of this truth: Jesus will never leave you or forsake you.
Yes. John Hall and Dave Stewart doing 'Missionary Man' at John's house.
And killing it.
(Thanks, Chris Taylor!)

You may have already seen this, but I recently found it on Marko's blog. Colbert is funny as usual–and calls out our hypocrisy. How do you feel about what he says?

Oh, yeah. Watch and LAUGH.
We have plenty of stuff about Jesus, but do we really have Jesus? I'm sure the world cares less about our buildings, our programs, our camps, and our statement of faith than they do about really seeing Jesus among us. Jesus in us. Jesus through us.
Don't get me wrong. I appreciate buildings, programs, camps and even statements of faith (some less than others…), but unless it oozes Jesus, it's just religious works. Unless it becomes missionally and incarnationally the hands and feet of Christ, it's nothing more than a Pharisee handing Jesus a bloody tampon saying, 'I made this for you'. (Isaiah 64:6)
