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…

Jesus the Healer

 Jesus encounter with the paralytic (Mark 2:1–12) is a tremendously interesting moment in His ministry.  It’s so important that all three Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) record it. What’s also interesting is what happens immediately following this event. Both Matthew and Luke indicate that on the same day, “As Jesus passed on from there, […] Continue reading…

Understanding Brokenheartedness

Brokenheartedness is way beyond just having a bad day or going through a tough season. Rest assured that God is there for those times as well, but we’re talking about a life-changing, soul-wrenching tragedy in which every other trial, every other heartbreak you’ve faced suddenly pales in comparison.

God’s Truth is THE Foundation

God is there patiently waiting for us. He’s there to start the healing process. He’s waiting for us with comfort and truth…

Bridging the Gulf

Christians are always stopping at the grave and trying to widen the gulf between this life and the next, but we need to realize all that God has for us in Heaven. We need to let ourselves be joyful about our future home and the home where our Christian loved ones are right now.

In this post I want to give an example of God’s kindness from the life of David. David is king in Israel at this point. The previous king, Saul, has been defeated […] Continue reading…

A Loving God in a Suffering World

As the church, we have to be able to effectively answer the question: How can there be a loving God in the midst of so much suffering?  Pollster and author George Barna tells us that it is the number one asked question by seekers and skeptics alike. In this post, I want to answer some […] Continue reading…

Grieving with Hope

Once you understand God’s truth, once you go after the Lord in the midst of your sorrow, then you can grieve with hope. Once you understand more about where our loved ones are, what they are doing, how alive they are, and the fact that they are present and near, then you can have peace and grieve with hope.

Managing Your Memories and Guarding Your Heart

Ask the Holy Spirit to direct you to thoughts that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, good, virtuous, and praiseworthy. Take every thought captive (2 Corinthians 10:4, 5), and if it is dark, lonely, bitter, or hurtful, throw it out! Those thoughts are of no use to you.

God With Us — He Never Forgets

An angel visits a carpenter named Joseph and explains to him the birth of his son. The angel quotes Isaiah 7:14 and says, “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call  His name Immanuel, which is God with us.” (Matthew 1:23). God with us. Sometimes the Christmas season […] Continue reading…
