John 10:11 – “I am the good shepherd.  The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.”

These words are in red in my Bible, which represents the spoken word of Jesus.  He is the good shepherd.  The one who lays down His life for us, His sheep.


This metaphor of...

Silence and solitude are spiritual disciplines of voluntarily and temporarily withdrawing for spiritual purposes.  It’s about intentionally “unplugging” from the noise and devices that can keep us from God, and plugging in to those things that can draw us closer.


I’m a...

What is worship?


When reflecting on what worship is we often refer to our denomination, upbringing, or even our preference. But the most common fact regarding our personal thoughts toward worship is our constant attention to the FORM of worship, rather than the PURPOSE...

Get this- 75% of American adults identified themselves as Christians in 2015, yet only about 30% of Americans attend church. This means that there is a greater number of Americans that need to be re-churched than there are Americans who consider themselves Christians i...

Self-indulgence is the enemy of gratitude.

Truth is, we live in a gluttonous, instant gratification, and do whatever makes me happy culture right now, so the discipline of fasting seems strange and something we simply don’t want to do, or don’t even think about.

A biblic...

The discipline of stewardship is not easy, but if we would take this discipline seriously, it would produce a life of contentment and relieve a lot of anxiety and fear.


Stewardship is not just about money.  Think for a moment:  What events have produced the greatest st...

God calls no one to idleness.  Hebrews 9:14 says we are to “serve the living God!”  Psalm 100:2 states that we are to “Serve the Lord with gladness.”


When we serve, we are taking our eyes off of us, and on to others.  Every one of us is gifted to serve.  The Holy Spiri...

“Prayer is the one thing that can make a difference in everything.”


Simply, Jesus expects us to pray.

  • Matthew 6:5, “And when you pray….”

  • Matthew 6:6, “But when you pray…”

  • Matthew 6:7, “And when you pray…”

  • Matthew 6:9, “This, then, is how you should pr...

I love this quote by Vance Havner – “The alternative to discipline is disaster.”


In the next few weeks we are going to discuss spiritual disciplines on this blog, taking one per week. The reason we are doing this is so we can learn, apply and help keep our lives from b...

Jesus came to seek and to save the lost.  That was his mission, and that is what we feel God is calling New Song Church to do as well.


In order to do that well, we believe our small group ministry is the main way we can get as many rescue boats out on the water as poss...

The dictionary defines a rescue mission by stating “an operation to rescue people in urgent need”.


If we know that 86% of Whatcom County is unsaved or unchurched, I would say we have a large part of our population in “urgent need”.


In Luke 15, Jesus shares a couple par...

When we accepted the gift of salvation through faith, scripture tells us we have become “born again”.  We now become a child of God.


That is the first step in our journey with Christ.  After we have been born again, it is time to grow, mature and develop our faith.  We...

In Matthew 4:19-21 Jesus has just began His ministry and is beginning to develop His posse by hand picking His first protégé’s. Simon (later to be called Peter) and his brother Andrew are the first to hear from the lips of Jesus the life altering invitation to “Come an...

Proverbs 8:17 (AMPC) – I love those who love me, and those who seek me early and diligently will find me.

I really like this translation of Proverbs 8:17.  “Those who seek me early and diligently will find me.”  When we seek after Jesus, we are understanding our need fo...

Join me won’t you on this little adventure I had a couple weeks ago.  Beautiful day, beautiful part of the state (Winthrop) and we are with great friends getting ready to float the Methow River.


I personally have never floated the river, and never really had much of a...
