  • The Gumby God

    10/4/2022 A lot of people like to make God out to be what they want Him to be--all love with no standards and no commandments. In their minds, God is nothing more than a glorified bell hop who is at their service to obey their orders. He is like Gumby, moldable and bendable to our selfish hopes, desires, and dreams.

  • Power Failure

    10/3/2022 The Christian life is a life of power. Jesus said, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you” (Acts 1:8). Hmm. If we have power from the Holy Spirit, why do we often feel so powerless? Why do we have power failures in the Christian life? Three likely reasons. Number One. We stray from the Lord.

  • Always Thankful

    09/30/2022 The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5: 18 “In everything give thanks, for this is God's will in Christ Jesus concerning you.” Thankfulness is an attitude of gratitude that pleases God. But how do you get an attitude like that? I mean, what if life has kicked you in the teeth, and the last thing you feel is thankful? To stay thankful, remember these three things: 1. Remember that God doesn’t owe you anything. Continue reading…

  • Judgment Day is Coming

    09/29/2022 In the 1960's, Winston Churchill made this observation about morality in Great Britain saying, “The moral landslide in Great Britain can be traced to the fact that heaven and hell are no longer preached in the land.” Now, if his statement was true then, how much more appropriate is it for today? People today have conveniently forgotten that God is "holy, holy, holy." And they fail to comprehend the ominous warning in Hebrews 10:31, “It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Continue reading…

  • Filled with the Spirit

    09/28/2022 When I was in college, we talked about people being of fire for the Lord. An on-fire Christian was one who loved Jesus with all his heart and was totally controlled and surrendered to the leadership of the Holy Spirit. That's what the Bible calls being "filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18). You see, the moment a person turns from sin and self and receives Jesus as Savior and Lord, that person is forgiven of all his sins ... and given the gift of the Holy Spirit to dwell within. Continue reading…

  • Where the Rubber Meets the Road

    09/27/2022 Have you heard the expression WHERE THE RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD? It speaks of the real test of something. Now I believe the test of Christianity ... where the rubber meets the road is found at home. Anyone can praise God at church ... but what about at home? You see we can fake a good marriage and family at church, but we certainly can't at home. So what is the answer? Continue reading…

  • A New Normal

    09/26/2022 On March 11, 2011, an earthquake hit off the coast of Japan. The tsunami that followed brought tremendous devastation to the land and the people. In the span of a few short minutes, thousands of lives were taken, and cities were virtually erased from the landscape. Very few of us can relate to that kind of devastation, but all of us can relate to the storms of life that come out of nowhere, hit us hard and turn everything upside down. Continue reading…

  • Fortify Your Family Against Satan

    09/22/2022 Years ago, I went on a mission trip to Africa where we slept in an encampment surrounded by an electric fence. Why? Because there were hungry lions on the other side of the fence! And if that fence had a flaw in it, the lions would’ve had an easy breakfast. You know, there’s a reason the Bible says Satan “prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Continue reading…
