Blinded by the Light

“And his manifestation does not abide in you, as long as you do not believe in whom He sent. Your entire hope is in the Scriptures, thinking that you have achieved eternal Life, and [yet the Scriptures] testify about me. And you are not pleased to come to me, so that you may have eternal...

The Very Few Words of Christ

Just a cursory look at the New Testament reveals the few words Christ spoke. At least the ones we have recorded in the four writings of his life and ministry. If one combines only the words of Jesus' into one book, it would be a very thin booklet. While Christ spoke and did many more... Continue Reading →

War of the Worlds

You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us ? But... Continue Reading →

The Biggest Bully

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7 NIV) It was the last straw. Little Johnny was not going to take another minute of it. "Big Bart" was about to discover the fury of a kid who was about to show his true grit. Bart loved to... Continue Reading →

This person will spend hours in prayer asking God to hear them...to answer their petitions, to hear their cries and respond in some way. Each time I visit the... Continue Reading →

Many churches state or imply the reasons many people don't come to church and learn about Jesus is because they have been disappointed by "church people". "If... Continue Reading →

Discipleship is not free

Everybody likes a free lunch. Unfortunately, nothing in life is free. There is always a cost. The same is true in terms of discipleship. I often hear about the "free gift" of Christ. Sure. There isn't anything I can do to earn or work my way into a relationship with Christ. However, the Master tells... Continue Reading →

Who loves Who?

You hear it from many pulpits across this our nation: "God loves you." It is a message that needs to be repeated throughout the church and to those seeking a relationship with our creator. There is another message, however, that is just as important. In Matthew, Jesus is asked what is the greatest commandment. Jesus... Continue Reading →

Your Mission

It's Monday. A new week with new challenges and uncertainties. I just don't know many people who look forward to Monday. However, let's try something new. Today, how about beginning the week with a new mission, a new focus, a new direction. The goal for today is simple: Be like Jesus. Think about it for... Continue Reading →
