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…

Eternity in Our Hearts

 Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God “has put eternity in [our] hearts.” Everything we long for and appreciate that is godly, loving, true, right, peaceful, secure, beautiful, and eternal all goes back to the Garden of Eden and God’s intention for humankind—to live forever in a state of beautiful heavenly joy. Every person, whether they’re a […] 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…

On the Way to Damascus

 Have you ever been on a journey, driving down the freeway toward your planned destination, when something happens that completely changes your plans? You are heading one way and suddenly, out of nowhere, you find yourself making different turns and going a new direction? I know it’s happened to me. Something like that happened to […] Continue reading…

Alive, Active . . . and Praying

The Bible clearly tells us that right now in Heaven, there are people with emotions, feelings, and desires. They know what’s happening on earth, as much as God allows, and they’re interceding in Heaven and asking God to intervene in the affairs of earth.

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.

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.

Heaven’s Delivery from the Fear of Death

I love what Hebrews 2:14–15 says, “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to […] Continue reading…

New Year God’s Way—Hopeful Waiting for Restoration

I’ve shared over my last few posts that celebrating New Year God’s way should be different from what we normally do. New Year God’s way should be about a spiritual rousing. We should hear His trumpet blast and awaken from any spiritual complacency into repentance. It should be a time of awe-filled remembrance as we […] Continue reading…

What is Really Important?

Has our nation gone crazy? I don’t know how many of you saw what happened recently when Nike introduced their latest Air Jordan, but it was crazy. People getting pepper sprayed and creating mob-line scenes—over a tennis shoe? When I see something like that, it really shows me how society has lots its mind about […] Continue reading…
