Calling On His Name

God is not just the God of creation or the God of relationship. He’s not just the God of judgment or promise—He is the God of fulfilled promises and the God of abundant generosity. We can know this is true even when we are waiting and even when everything around us is going crazy. The [...] Continue reading…

Never Lose Sight of God’s Promises

This past Sunday we looked at Eve and the birth of Seth. Seth, after Cain’s killing of Abel, represented another male seed born to Adam and Eve. In the garden, God promised them a seed and one make seed was dead with Cain’s murder. However, Eve never gave up. Her mind was still on the [...] Continue reading…

Stirred Up to Pray

In the last part of the book of Ephesians the apostle Paul gives the church the most simple, practical, everyday applications to the daily life you can find anywhere. He talks of unity, holiness, fruitfulness, the Word and prayer. In fact, he ends the list with a bold summary statement by writing, “praying always with [...] Continue reading…

Desperation is a Gift

All of us should feel desperation before God. This desperation comes from seeking Him in fervent, faith-filled prayer. When we do, we should feel a desperate dependence on His help so He can help us understand the things that break His heart. That is what God wants us to feel—“Lord, I’m desperate for you to [...] Continue reading…

The Necessity of Vision

This past Sunday we recognized and celebrated all that God is doing and has been doing at Grace Chapel. It’s amazing! As the senior pastor I am grateful and humbled by what I see happening in every corner of our ministry. While we recognize and celebrate what He has done, we also need to look [...] Continue reading…

Grateful for What He Has Done

Luke 17:11–19 shows us a stark contrast between gratitude—showing an attitude of thanksgiving—and ingratitude—an attitude of people who get what they want, then never come back and they forget God and all He’s done for them. In 2015 I want to be sure I’m always grateful for what God has done and is doing and, [...] Continue reading…

New Year God’s Way—Awe-Filled Remembrance

In the Jewish tradition the holidays opening the New Year (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) were known as “Days of Awe.” They were days filled with God’s people remembering all that God had done for them. They remembered with awe the God of creation. They believed that creation itself occurred on Rosh Hashanah. We must [...] Continue reading…

New Year is about Spiritual Rousing

God’s New Year is about spiritual rousing. Leviticus 23:23–25 gives us a picture of New Year, God’s way. The blowing trumpet in ancient Israel marked solemn, joyful, and  urgent occasions. It caused them to be roused. This Scripture concerns the Feast of the Trumpets. It happened in the seventh month in the Jewish worship calendar and [...] Continue reading…

Seven Glories of Jesus Christ

Christmas is a time to reflect on the person and divinity of Jesus Christ.  While the world seems to want to push Jesus farther and farther away from Christmas, we, as believers need to, with conviction, share and hold fast to the truth. We need to speak about Jesus with the authority of God’s truth, [...] Continue reading…

The Gifts of the Wise Men

When we read Scripture we know very little about the wise men. Every year people send millions of Christmas greetings that show three kings presenting gifts to the child in the manger. We sing “We Three Kings of Orient Are.” But, in fact, we don’t really know if there were three wise men or a [...] Continue reading…
