    02/4/2020 Have you ever tried to cover up your sin? Living in cover-up mode is an extremely miserable and fearful way to live. After committing adultery and killing a man, King David said, “When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted … Your hand was heavy upon me” (Psalm 32:3-4). David was totally miserable in his cover-up. Continue reading…

  • The Praise Perspective

    02/3/2020 It was a scary time for the people of God. Assyria, the world power of the day, was about to turn out the lights on Judah. They needed a miracle from God or else their goose was cooked. King Hezekiah went to the Lord in prayer and said, “O LORD, the God of Israel, who is enthroned above the cherubim, You are the God, You alone…” (2 Kings 19:15). Continue reading…

    01/31/2020 Uzziah was king in Israel. He ruled for fifty-two years and was the only king many in Israel ever knew. As a result, they faced his death with great mourning.

  • The Hardest Lesson to Learn

    01/30/2020 I have found that it’s easy to start thinking that God loves us based on our performance. We tend to think, “God loves me if I am obeying Him, He doesn’t love me if I am failing Him.” Regardless of your performance, God loves you! He loves you because He chose to love you.

  • Telling the Truth

    01/28/2020 Can you imagine going to the doctor for a checkup, and he finds out that you have cancer? He wants you to like him, so he says you are OK. You walk out completely unaware that you are in serious trouble. I want to hear the truth, don’t you? Continue reading…

  • Putting Down the Whip

    01/24/2020 As a young monk, Martin Luther wanted nothing more than to please God. But, like the rest of us, he struggled with sin. His way of dealing with this problem was to severely discipline his body, thinking it would make him more godly. Now, I don’t suppose you are whipping your back over your sins, do you beat yourself up emotionally and mentally over failures from the past? Continue reading…

  • Practical Atheism

    01/23/2020 Have you ever met an atheist? An atheist believes there isn’t a God. While a Christian wouldn’t be guilty of being an atheist, many Christians are guilty of being practical atheists. Practical atheism does not believe there is no God, practical atheism lives as if there is no God. Either way, it’s a foolish way to live Continue reading…

  • Of Course I'm a Christian ... I Think

    01/22/2020 What does it mean to be a Christian? Does it mean you have joined a church or do some religious things? NO! Sadly, many people who claim to be Christians do not understand what it means to be one. The Bible tells us that a Christian is one who has received the very life and nature of God.
