Can you talk to God?

The idea that we can approach God as if He were our father may be less than comforting, depending on your experiences growing up. When we see God the Father in communion with His Son, Jesus Christ, we see true love and can begin to see how approachable and ready God is to listen to our prayers and provide comfort in our times of need. Galatians 4:6.

When your prayer loses steam

Have you ever noticed your desire to commune with God slipping away? One of the reasons might be that you are not trusting that God exists and that He is good (Jam 1:5-9). When we remember the blessing of talking with God and habitually bring our minds back to His good works, we find our interest in prayer increases. What experiences do you remember from your prayer time?

How to change what you're thoughts

Almost everyone suffers from what seems like uncontrollable fear, worry, or some other thoughts we wish we could stop. One method that has proven helpful for Christians has been to memorize portions of the Bible and rehearse those passages as a way of breaking the unwanted thought cycle. Philippians 4:l8-19 tells us to change the way we think.

A promise for Memorial Day

The Christian's great hope of seeing our loved ones again rests not in our belief that we are or will be good enough to earn this reward. We should be continually humbled by our God who is good enough, strong enough, and concerned enough to grant us His promise (1 Corinthians 15) of reunification with our departed.

Not Enough

Although good works are a natural outcome of our faith, we must always remember that they are NOT the source of our salvation (Philippians 3:9). As Christians, we should be constantly humbled by the sacrificial death of Christ, where he took our punishment for us, and gave us grace in return. May we always give grace to others, just like Christ gave grace to us.

In the shadow of your religion

Our motives for serving God and doing good works can undermine our joy and happiness in performing the works. Philippians 3 calls on us to "rejoice in the Lord," but doing God's work in a way that promotes our own interests, hides this joy from us. Can you think of ways you do good works to be seen as a "good person, instead of doing them as a way of saying "I love you to God?"

Jesus loved the doubter

Christians often tell the story of "doubting Thomas" in order to reinforce and remind us of how important faith is to the believer. However, we should not forget that Jesus was willing to give Thomas the proof he sought (Jn. 25). How do you respond to honest skeptics who doubt the validity of your faith? Are you willing to give your personal story of faith as your personal proof?

Jesus loved the doubter


Each of the cartoons on this site is an expression of a sermon I heard in church. As a cartoonist, my method of understanding complex theological topics is to boil them down to simple images.

These images will never do justice to the sermons from which they are derived, but hopefully, they convey at least one aspect of those sermons to you, the reader.

I hope that you gain some benefit from the cartoons and will reuse them in ways that honor Christ.
