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…

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…

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…

A Faith Expressed

This past week Grace Chapel celebrated its 20th anniversary. While thinking through the past twenty years and celebrating God’s work in and through us, something about our church and our people really jumps out at me—we are a group who humbly and actively has a faith expressed. What do I mean by that? I can […] Continue reading…

God’s Deliverance

We’ve been examining Ezekiel 38 and 39 over the last few weeks. Chapter 38 focuses on the threat from the Ten Most Wanted (Gog and the nations) who are opposed to God and His people. Chapter 39 concentrates more on the deliverance of God’s people from that threat. Our God is a God of deliverance. […] Continue reading…

Which Side Will You Choose?

Friends, God uses prophetic voices like Ezekiel’s to tell us about events that are going to happen—He literally tells us what is going to happen before it happens. Today’s news seem like they are being ripped directly from the Bible. God has told us these things will happen and we see, right in the news […] Continue reading…

Crazy or Clarity

There is one thing that brings clarity to crazy times—the fact that God is in charge. As long as we’re on God’s team, we can have hope, peace, and yes, clarity. Proverbs 21:1 tells us, “The King’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as are the watercourses; He turns it whichever way He […] Continue reading…

The Best Kind of Fear

We live in perilous, yet exciting times. We witness tragedy every day in the Middle East and other parts of the world. We read our Bibles and can witness God’s prophecy revealed in the very headlines we’re reading or watching. While we might have a tendency to be afraid, I’d like to point us to […] Continue reading…

Waking Up to What’s Going On

As we read today’s headlines and see all that unfolding in the Middle East, and other places, we need to wake up, realize what is happening especially in light of biblical prophecy. We need to be aware as God let’s us know what’s going to happen before it happens. How we need to respond to […] Continue reading…
