My name is Kyle McNutt, and I want to welcome you to my home on the Web. I am a follower of Jesus, who also happens to be a blogger, author and speaker. My passion is to help other Christ followers grow in fervent intimacy with God — to embrace their weakness and live a passionate, impactful life, fueled by His love and guided by His truth! I want to live a life worthy of the calling I have received (Ephesians 4:1), and I am committed to challenging others to do the same.
Before we go any further in this relationship, I need to make sure one thing is clear. While I do have a ministry license and ordination certificate hanging on my office wall, I don’t really consider myself an expert on much of anything “spiritual” anymore. God surprises me far too often for that. And while I love the Church with all of my heart, I never really made a good pastor anyway. My “gift” is challenging the status quo. I think the spiritual word for it is “exhortation” — to encourage, challenge, and inspire others in their faith. Whatever you call it, that’s what I’m here to do.
So, if you read something here that encourages you, good.
If you are challenged, fantastic.
If you feel inspired, awesome.
If you are a little uncomfortable or angry at times, success! (But please, let’s talk about it. You might just change my mind, and I would love to still be friends!)
Through this website, my writings and speaking engagements, I hope to help those who have put their faith in Jesus grasp the full extent to which they are loved by their Creator. My desire is to help you avoid the exhausting game of constantly striving to hide your shortcomings. Instead, learn to embrace your weakness as a platform for God’s strength! As you do, you are then truly free to live in intimacy with God. Empowered by that intimacy, you can find joy in fulfilling the great commandments — to love God and love others.
And if anything I offer here causes you to rethink the way you relate to God, treat others, approach life as part of the Church, vote, work, interact in the marketplace, or anything else in your daily life, well, you’re welcome!
A broken man or woman who is passionately in love with Jesus, committed to serving and loving people, done playing the game, tired of trying to impress others and devoted to walking out truth (even when it is unpopular and costly) can’t help but make an impact and leave a legacy!
