Making Decisions with a Heavenly Heart

Abraham was the centerpiece of my last post. It looks at Hebrews 11 and how Abraham’s heart and mind were totally on Heaven. He lived with a heavenly perspective; there’s no doubt about it. In this post I want to unpack a bit more of Abraham’s life. In Hebrews 11:13, we see that Abraham saw […] Continue reading…

Abraham’s Heavenly Heart

His heart was in Heaven while his hand was in the harvest. Paul lived for Jesus Christ. We can see it plainly […] Continue reading…

Hard Pressed Living: Heaven Captured Paul’s Heart

In my last post, I shared some beginning thoughts from our new series on Hard-Pressed Living. When we look at the Apostle Paul’s life, it obvious that he was heavenly-minded. He makes it clear that he’d like to go there immediately and he was excited to get going. Why do you think that’s so true? […] Continue reading…
