The Open Table: An Invitation To Walk With God

 

 

 

 

I am not a pastor, a preacher, or a missionary.

I love people, talking about Jesus, and giving. I am not an astrophysicist, a chef, or a comedian. I love looking up, eating, and making people laugh. I am not a father, husband, or son. I have three amazing kids, a stunning wife, and wonderful parents. I am not a writer, and I’ve written a few books.

I am loved. That is who I am – loved. And I am becoming love…

In early 2010, my brother Joel asked me if I would be interested in writing the guidebook to the second offering of Donald Millers, The Open Table. Joel was filming the video component and the author role was available. The book would accompany the film as a discipleship guide for new believers. I told Joel that I would be honored to write it.

For about a month I wondered what approach I should take. All I had to go on was the word discipleship. “Jesus had disciples, so there’s that…” I thought.

I don’t have years of sermons sitting in a file in my office – my office is Starbucks and they won’t let me keep stuff here. I leaned in and asked my heavenly Father.

Here is my simple thought; discipleship is about introducing a believer to their new identity. Discipleship is about releasing a believer into a revelation of who they are in Christ. And it is simple; we are loved and becoming love.

The Open Table released in late 2010. It’s a five-week discipleship devotional that introduces believers, new and old, into their identity as sons and daughters of a good Father. While it is great to read along with a small group while watching the DVD, it also stands alone as a wonderful introduction to walking with God.

Check it out!

Be blessed

What’s He Like

If a person believes punishment is in God’s nature, that God pulls triggers after we die, that hell is His final act of eternal separation, then simply asking the question “Can we be saved when we die?” is sacrilege and attempting to answer, sheer heretical lunacy…

Intimacy is Your Inheritance

I am convinced that our true inheritance as believers has nothing to do with money, land, or possessions of any kind. It’s simply our Father’s love revealed.

The parent-child relationship and our formative years greatly influence how we navigate everything, including our spirituality and faith. Often our theological deconstructions are the fruit of discovering a God with whom we feel loved, secure, and safe; where we move from insecure to secure attachment.
