One of the exciting things about serving God is how he often takes us into situations where it seems there is no way out of a problem. When all our senses seem to tell us that God has clearly left us alone, that he has forgotten us, or that we must have strayed off his plan somewhere, just when it seems absolutely hopeless, God blows our minds!...
God’s love is great because of the distance it goes to redeem the unredeemable. Romans 5:7-8 puts it down for what it is. God’s love is great because it is unconditional. God took on flesh, lived among us, healed the sick and the cripple and the blind, performed wonders that authenticate his deity then took the penalty for our sins on the cross. He took the blame. He took the shame. He took yours and he took mine. He didn’t do this because you deserved it. He did it because God is love (1 John 4:8-9)....
Living your life for the glory of Christ will come with the anticipation of finally seeing Him face to face! To live for Christ means death is only something you can anticipate. To live for the world means death is only something you can dread. Joy from the world is a fantasy. Joy from the joy giver is reality....
There are large organizations calling themselves the true church of Jesus Christ. The main reason they insist that they are the true church is because they lay claim to apostolic succession.

Being open minded is the most appreciated state of mind in our culture. It has the veneer of humility and acceptance. What happens when an "open mind" comes in contact with the Gospel?...Keep Reading
It's Good Friday. It's a day that is dedicated to remember the death of Jesus upon the cross. But why do Christians choose to remember a moment that seems so dark?...Keep Reading
Have you ever tried to share the hope of Jesus Christ with someone and you can't get past their "real life experiences" that have led them to believe what they do? The more you try to share the Biblical truth, the more tightly they cling to their experience. ...Keep Reading
Should we be training our disciples up in theology before we can trust them to understand the Bible? No. In fact, giving them a theology before they are trusted to understand the Bible does more damage than you might think. It's unnatural, unwise and comes up short compared to the effectiveness of a disciple who knows his theology because he knows his Bible, not the other ...Keep Reading
Being indifferent to the Gospel of Jesus Christ is troubling. It can really only be because there is a lack of belief in the condition that demands the necessity for the Gospel. In other words, the cross is only attractive to people who know they need the cross. So why don't people think they need Jesus?...Keep Reading
