  • It Takes Practice

    12/10/2018 Practice is essential to the Christian life. Paul told the Christians in Philippi "The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you." Philippians 4:9. Continue reading…

  • The Happiness Confusion

    12/7/2018 Many people are confused about happiness. They equate happiness with money and materialism. To them, happiness is a million dollars. Other people equate happiness with good physical health. To them, happiness is an in-shape body hitting on all eight cylinders. Still, to other, happiness is a big promotion, or graduation, or reaching a milestone. Continue reading…

  • A New Wanter

    12/6/2018 Years ago, I had a man share his testimony with me. He said when he received Christ, he got his ‘wanter’ changed. I said what? He said, “Before I was a Christian, I wanted to sin, to party, to indulge the flesh. But after I gave my life to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, my wanter changed. Continue reading…

  • A Friend to the End

    12/5/2018 How do you see God? Do you see God as a king? He is surely a King. Do you see God as a father? He is surely a father. But He is also a friend. Proverbs 18:24 says, “there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Continue reading…

  • Choose to Rejoice

    12/4/2018 The Bible says in Psalm 118:24, “This is the day which the Lord has made, WE WILL rejoice and be glad in it.” Regardless of the trials and problems, you and I can make the choice to rejoice.

  • The Gumby God

    12/3/2018 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. Continue reading…

  • Power Failure

    11/30/2018 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. Continue reading…

  • Always Thankful

    11/29/2018 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? Continue reading…

  • Judgment Day is Coming

    11/28/2018 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? Continue reading…

  • Filled With the Spirit

    11/27/2018 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). Continue reading…
