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…

The Seriousness of Serving

Being a passionate servant of Jesus Christ is not an insignificant issue. The more I read His Words, I realize its not only significant, it’s non-negotiable.  Living the life that Jesus came and sacrificed for us to have includes putting our hand in the abundant harvest and serving people. At the end of Matthew’s gospel, […] Continue reading…

Fear Takes Us Backwards

Jesus, in Luke 10:1–2 points to the opportunity. He said to the people, “There’s tremendous opportunity but there’s a shortage of laborers. There’s a job to be done, but we don’t have enough people willing to work.” There’s not a jobs crisis; there is a worker crisis. In Luke 9:57–62 Jesus is approached by three […] Continue reading…

Breaking the 80/20 Rule

I refuse to give in to the world’s percentages.  I refuse to surrender to the Pareto Principle that says 20% of the people do 80% of the work. Or, 20% of the people do 80% of the church giving. I just don’t think it has to apply to us. There has to be a change. […] Continue reading…

What’s NOT in Heaven

One approach to looking at and appreciating Heaven is to study what is NOT there. When we look at the picture of what’s not going to be there, it opens a magnificence that is hard to believe with our human minds. In fact it blows me away to see what is NOT there and then […] Continue reading…

Heaven is Our Real Hope

Heaven not just be part of a slogan on a bumper sticker or a word along with a nice picture on a refrigerator magnet. It’s a real place that every Believer in Jesus Christ should radically embrace. It should be the eagerly awaited, focal point of every Believer’s heart and mind. It should be the […] Continue reading…

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

There’s no doubt. Abraham lived his life with a heavenly perspective. It captivated his heart and his mind. Hebrews 11:9, 10 and 13–16 teaches us so much about his perspective. He’s a great example of how we need to live our lives. Verse 9 tells us that Abraham sojourned in the land of promise as […] Continue reading…

Peter’s Heavenly Perspective

Having a heavenly perspective isn’t something that only Jesus taught. The Prophets, the Patriarchs and the Apostles all had their hearts firmly rooted in Heaven’s Savior, salvation and splendor. That focus led them to a deep longing and desire for Heaven, but at the same time they lived with an open hand towards the harvest. […] Continue reading…

Eternity in Our Hearts

Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” God has put eternity in our hearts. Every person, whether they are a Christian or not, has the […] Continue reading…
