Conflict is Inevitable

Let me get right to the point, conflict for the Christian is inevitable. Lately I’ve heard far too many Christians say, “I don’t want any conflict.” I know what most people mean when they say that—“I want to live peaceably and I don’t want to be argumentative,” or they don’t want to be combative, and […] Continue reading…

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…

Choosing the Divine Appointment

 Hebrews 2:11 reminds us of Jesus’ humanity. Like you, and me, Jesus knew what it meant to be tired. John 4:6 tells us, “Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well.”  Pastor Jon Courson wrote, “He knows how it feels to be bone-tired. I’m glad about that because I feel that […] 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…

Getting Out of Our Comfort Zones

 Jesus asks us to get out of our comfort zone in many of His parables. None if more challenging than the parable of the lost sheep in John 15: 3–7.  In this parable He clearly shows us a man out of his comfort zone. He had ninety-nine sheep all safe and tucked in the pen. […] 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…

We All Have a Story to Tell

 All of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior have a story to tell. Yet, most people don’t. We often think, “It’s the preacher’s job.” But in all reality, it’s everyone’s responsibility (really privilege). George Barna wrote, “One of the common reactions of Christians is that they do not need to engage in […] 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…

Heaven Promises a Home

  Heaven is real and all that Scripture tells us about heaven should inspire and motivate us to share our faith with anyone who doesn’t know the truth and promises of heaven. What is that truth? It is God dwelling with man and wiping away every tear. Heaven is a place where there is no […] Continue reading…

An Intense Longing

 I love Psalm 84:1–2, 10. David wrote: How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a […] Continue reading…
