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…

Servant of All

I wonder how some churches and ministries would change if humility would invade our hearts!

Acts 28:2 records the extraordinary kindness of […] Continue reading…

Our strength, our energy, our intellect and our plans are nothing compared to the boldness, power and kingdom […] Continue reading…

Why We Are Not Studying God’s Word

There are some startling published statistics about the Bible and how so many Christians are not regularly reading  or studying it. George Barna, in 2005, asked American Christians to rate their spiritual maturity. Christians offered the harshest evaluation of their Bible knowledge with 25 percent calling themselves not too mature or not at all mature. […] 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…
