Jesus’ Answer to Perilous Times

I’m grateful to Dr. Michael Brown and the messages he brought us Sunday morning and Sunday night. He gave us, like the son’s of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32), tremendous insight into our times so we can respond from wisdom. There’s no question, as Dr. Brown explained, that we live in some radically difficult times and […] 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…

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…

Standing at the Door

I am writing in this post about a man named Lot and a stand he took at a very crucial time. Lot was Abram’s [later called Abraham] nephew. Abram was a man of incredible wealth and he had a huge entourage, which, in that day, distinguished him as a man of means. Lot also had […] Continue reading…

The Theology of Shout

Many times, as we express our faith, we just need to shout. Shout in praise, shout for joy, and shout about God’s faithfulness when we’ve extended ourselves to believe and obey, in faith. I call it the theology of shout. Scripture gives us some vivid pictures of this: First we just need to read Joshua […] Continue reading…

We make disciples by: Sharing the Truth so people can become followers of Jesus Teaching the Truth so people can be transformed by Jesus Living the […] Continue reading…

Lifegroups: The Early Church Model

 We’ve been talking about how, as Grace Chapel grows, we can, at the same time, become smaller. One way, and the way modeled by Jesus Christ Himself, is Lifegroups. Interestingly enough, after Jesus left this earth and His apostles began preaching and bringing people to Jesus, they adopted the idea of local small groups. Gareth […] Continue reading…

What Servants Understand

 I love what pastor Warren Wiersbe wrote about serving: “Serving God is a wonderful thing if we understand what it is and how God does it through us. Ministering for Jesus Christ can be as uplifting and exciting as hang gliding, or it can be as burdensome and boring as repeatedly rolling the same rock […] Continue reading…

Being More Spiritual People

 As Believers in Jesus Christ it’s important that we understand the Holy Spirit and also set the Holy Spirit into our minds. We need to understand the Person and work of the Holy Spirit, yield to Him and live as spiritual not natural people. This is incredibly important because a person can name the name […] Continue reading…

God Dwells in the Midst of our Praise

God literally inhabits and dwells in the midst of our praise. Psalm 22:3 says, “But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel.” He is there when we praise and worship Him. This is so important for us to remember and here’s why: If you are going through tough times and you are trying […] Continue reading…
