Save the Girl

Caleb Breakey - Monday, April 28, 2014
The church is beaten and bruised alongside the road. She's naked, dirty, an eyesore to believers and nonbelievers alike. Loving her is hard, but she is the love of our first love. Jesus Christ will never leave her nor forsake her. He will go to her, pick her up, and heal her. We too must go to her. We too must love her.

Don't Roll the Dice

Caleb Breakey - Thursday, April 24, 2014
In relationships, some of us like testing the odds. We put ourselves in potentially damaging situations because we want to know whether or not we can handle them. But just like rolling the dice over and over, there's a high probability for failure.

Modesty Matters

Caleb Breakey - Thursday, April 24, 2014
Rules are not the centerpiece of modesty. Necklines and skirt lengths for girls and shirts on or off for guys isn't the big deal. The main issue of modesty is exactly what we've been talking about all along: giving what your other needs most instead of taking what you want now.

7 Things Jesus Says, Part 4

Caleb Breakey - Tuesday, April 22, 2014
If you love someone who loves you, what profit is that? Anyone can do that, Jesus says. But if you love the messy bride of Christ—people in church—that's supernatural. That speaks. And we have to have faith that speaks.

Great Good and Great Evil

Caleb Breakey - Friday, April 18, 2014
I knew Brittney loved me—she'd filled dozens of journals about me!—but I always yearned to hear it again: that she loved me, loved me, loved me. Part of this yearning was tied to my own insecurity, for sure. But somewhere deep in my heart, it seems I also wanted her to love me more than she loved God. (Not that i ever thought that. It's just how I see my behavior in retrospect.) Instead of using my words to lift her eyes to God, I used them to lower her eyes to me.

7 Things Jesus Says, Part 3

Caleb Breakey - Thursday, April 17, 2014
Your life is not your own. Your life is a product of those who’ve poured into you career-wise, education-wise, spiritually-wise. They all helped you become who you are in Christ today. They invested in you. To decide to live intentionally not only outside of your church but inside of your church as well … is to pay the love forward.

Boundaries Don't Work

Caleb Breakey - Monday, April 14, 2014
If you want to honor God in your relationship, you need something far more powerful than boundaries. The fact is, boundaries are like those pleasant exchanges you have when you run into someone you haven't seen in a while and say something like, "We should get together sometime." You might like the idea, but you probably won't put much effort into making it happen.

7 Things Jesus Says, Part 2

Caleb Breakey - Friday, April 11, 2014
Everyone in your church is somewhere in their relationship with Jesus, knowledge of Jesus, and how they're obeying Jesus and following Jesus. And here’s the thing: We need to be a part of their growth. We need to teach each other to be more like Jesus. Not by giving others our convictions, but by crying out to God, "Lord, use me in the growth of others. Help me be intentional.”

Sex and the Slope

Caleb Breakey - Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Brittney and I had grown so emotionally attached that it wouldn't take much to push us all the way. In other words, if we kept growing closer it would be very difficult to avoid sex before marriage. What is your emotional and physical status with your other right now?

7 Things Jesus Says to Followers Who Are Leaving His Church (Part 1)

Caleb Breakey - Tuesday, April 08, 2014
Right now, people are saying that they can follow Jesus without joining a local church. There's a growing sense that, “Hey, I follow Jesus but I'm done with traditional church.” And I totally get where they're coming from. That said, Jesus has shown us that the body of Christ is his bride, that he loves her, and that his will for us is to love her too. This is why I wrote Called to Stay.
