Jay Blogs – Charge to Seniors at Graduation 2019

It will be amazing to you and to your parents how quickly four years of college will come and go. As we speak, my daughter Emma is graduating from Baylor. It’s incredible how fast that time went. College is important, but it’s not what’s most important. I want to...

Jay Blogs – Sweet Endings

As I write this, I just experienced one of those amazing travel stories.  I’m on my way back from a board meeting in Colorado, traveling with a friend.  Our flight was supposed to leave at 6:30 am. Then, it was postponed to 8:00 am.  Then, we sat on the plane,...

Jay Blogs – A New Day

Do you ever wonder why virtually no one in the gospel narrative ever seemed to understand that Jesus was the Messiah? Unless the Holy Spirit revealed it to them, like Peter at Caesarea Philippi, no one ever seemed to clue in. This, despite the fact that the Old...

Jay Blogs – Grizzled Veteran

My wife and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this week. At this point in my marital career, I think I could qualify as a “grizzled veteran.”  Like everyone’s marriage, we’ve had trials and joys, but God has been gracious and good to us. As Ashley and I...

Jay Blogs – American Idols

You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Molech, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.  Leviticus 18:21 To me, there are few concepts more chilling in the Bible than the idolatry that led to child sacrifice. In passages like the one above...
