I was listening to a Francis Chan message the other day. He was talking about really studying the 23rd Psalm for the first time. Something really struck me when he was talking about the phrase from verse 4, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me;”. He talked about the fact that it says here even when we walk through the valley of the shadow of death. Not “if”, but “when”. So often we do our best to avoid The Valley. We feel like God should protect us from The Valley. That’s not what it says here. It says when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.

Think back to when you were a kid. Remember those bullies that always tormented you. Didn’t you ever wish for a superhero to be at your side? [Read more…]

We are camping this memorial day weekend, so we listened once again to one of my brother Brandon’s sermons which they post on the web. You can find them on iTunes at International English Church as well as on their website under the Listen tab.

We just love listening to Brandon’s messages. They are simple enough teachings for a new Christian, yet they have enough depth that people that have been Christians all their lives can be impacted as well.

We chose to listen to this second message from his series on I Peter titled “Who You Are”. This is something that so many people struggle with. Until you truly understand your identity, you will not have the impact in this life that you could have.
