The Very First Thanksgiving

In the fall of 1621, just a few months after the Mayflower left to go back to England, Gov. William Bradford announced a time of Thanksgiving. For three days, the pilgrims rejoiced in the goodness of God. The celebration was a response of these godly people to the truth of the Word of God that [...] Continue reading…

Gospel Discovery of Intercessory Prayer

Intercession. It is praying and crying out for the future, heavenly, Kingdom-of-God power, to invade our present, hellish kingdom-of-darkness circumstances today. Andrew Murray wrote, “Christ has opened the school of prayer especially to train intercessors for the great work of bringing down, by their faith and prayer, the blessings of His work and love upon [...] Continue reading…

Discover the Gospel Demonstrated

The Gospel is a present demonstration of the coming future glory of the Kingdom, rule and reign of God. We can see, in Scripture, that the kingdom of God is both “already” (Luke 11:14–20) and “not yet” (1 Corinthians 15:24). What is the kingdom of God? It is the sphere of God’s rule and reign [...] Continue reading…

Bad News and Good News: An Eternity of Difference

Here’s the bad news: We are all conceived in sin (“brought forth in iniquity,” Psalm 51:5). We’re all children of wrath (Ephesians 2:3). The bad news is, God doesn’t just overlook sin and clear the guilty. The bad news is, you can’t save yourself. If you could save yourself Jesus came, as the Apostle Paul [...] Continue reading…

How One Person Can Change the World

We can find so many heroes in the Bible who changed the world—Moses led his people out of captivity and slavery, Joshua led the people to the Promised Land, Nehemiah rebuilt the wall, Daniel stands for truth and David bested Goliath. I think we sometimes overlook one man who had dramatic impact on the spread [...] Continue reading…

God Uses the Ordinary to Transform

When we think about change and how we can bring about revival one thing we need to remember is that God isn’t looking for perfection—He’s looking for obedience. God isn’t looking for superstars—He uses the most ordinary of resources to cause significant, life-changing, and world-shaking transformation. The apostle Paul helps us understand this as he [...] Continue reading…

It’s Time to Grow Up

The book of James focuses on growing up and maturing and if there ever was a time in our history when Christians needed to grow up and mature, it’s today. James speaks to spiritual progression. He wrote about little children growing into strong young men and women of faith who have God’s Word abiding in [...] Continue reading…

Finding Safety in God’s Presence

It seems our current culture, the society or the world in which we live is full of fear. People are worried about everything from Ebola epidemics to identity theft to ISIS attacks to open borders. What’s the answer? I think we can look at 2 Chronicles 7:14. It says, “If my people, who are called [...] Continue reading…

Judging or Condemning?

Judging is prominent in our culture today. Shows like American Idol and the Voice have opened the door to everyone being a judge of performance or style. We see commentators on news media judging events, people, speeches, press conferences and the weather. We even watch as people’s moral behavior is judged often against a standard [...] Continue reading…
