The Importance of Ministering to Israel

I have a small confession to make—I’ve repeatedly read and studied the book of Romans, but somehow I missed the critical importance and significance of these few verses in chapter 15. Paul wrote: But now I am going to Jerusalem to minister to the saints. For it pleased those from Macedonia and Achaia to make a […] Continue reading…

Building a House with Eternal Materials

As a little girl, Amy Carmichael sensed God whispering 1 Corinthians 3 into her ear. She understood that all of her works would be thrown into the fire, and only those things done for Christ would matter eternally and bring reward. Amy went on to become a missionary to India, opening an orphanage and founding a […] Continue reading…

Paul’s Life and Fruit

 One of the benefits of understanding your marching orders and living with a heavenly attitude was that Paul’s life produced valuable fruit. Philippians 1:22 says, “If I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell.” Clearly, as long as Paul lived on earth, […] Continue reading…

A Radical Lifestyle

 Twenty-five years after his conversion, Paul writes to the church of Colosse, If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden […] Continue reading…

Embracing a Servant’s Heart

 Mark tells us an interesting story in 5:18–20: “And when He got into the boat, he who had been demon-possessed begged Him that he might be with Him. However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, ‘Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, […] 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…

Having a Heavenly Mindset in the Midst Your Hurt

The Apostle Paul’s life surely wasn’t a walk in the park (see 2 Corinthians 11:24–28). He gives us a glimpse of how he got through some incredibly tough times in 2 Corinthians 4:8–10: We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, […] Continue reading…

Be Continually Filled

Any desire we have of putting our hand in the abundant harvest rests on understanding the need of the Holy Spirit in our lives. It’s simple, if we try to do it “our way” we will fail. Our strength, our energy, our intellect and our plans are nothing compared to the boldness, power and kingdom […] Continue reading…

Jesus: The Centerpiece of God’s Action

In Luke 4, Jesus returns to Galilee and travels throughout the region. His fame increases as reports of his radical teaching spread.  He returns home and, as tradition taught Him, goes to his hometown synagogue. Entering the synagogue, Jesus reads from the Isaiah scroll that is handed to him. As Jesus reads from the scroll, […] Continue reading…

Sharing the Hope that is in YOU

1 Peter 3:15 says, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” The great Apostle Peter is telling us to set God and His Word first in our hearts. […] Continue reading…
