The Reason We Go Astray …

Date October 24, 2017

It’s amazing to me how many times I find myself “off track” in the priorities God has laid down for me. There is no doubt that I want His best and I want it sooner than later. Then, it takes so little to cause me to “rabbit trail” away from those things. Jesus talked about the […]

Upgrading Our Prayer Life!

Date October 19, 2017

“Yeshua answered them, “Yes! I tell you, if you have trust and don’t doubt, you will not only do what was done to this fig tree; but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Go and throw yourself into the sea!’ it will be done. In other words, you will receive everything you ask for […]

What Was That You Posted?

Date October 17, 2017

It is so easy to post the first thing that comes to our minds … and, if we were honest, that IS who we are. Jesus was clear that our words are the reflections of our hearts (Matthew 12:34). What most Christ followers don’t realize is that every single word spoken or posted will be […]

Don’t Fool Yourself!

Date October 12, 2017

It happens every day … mostly because we are so generous and loving. We choose to believe someone because of what they say. Then, a few days, weeks, or months later we are bitten by that same person.

Will We Ever Learn?

Date October 10, 2017

  Have you noticed how many times you have witnessed a divided church, a divided family, a divided workplace? Jesus tells us that there are only TWO bleak futures for such a group … “However, knowing what they were thinking, Yeshua said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city […]

Impacted By God’s Word

Date June 13, 2017

Some verses just make a bigger impact in my life than others. How about you? Sure they do! When this verse comes across my path each year in my Bible reading, it causes me to stop and evaluate some things. Do I believe this? Am I seeing this play out in my daily life? Which […]

Questions to Ask Before You Take an Associate Position

Date June 1, 2017

Recently a good friend asked whether he should take a position that’s been offered to him. As I took some time thinking about this, I considered this is his first foray into a church ministry staff position. Since he’s young, I wanted to give him “wise counsel;” after all, this step could affect his long-term future and life. Here’s […]

Invasion Requires a Life of Endurance!

Date May 16, 2017

“And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.” […]

I Will Not Be Shaken!

Date May 9, 2017

As Hurricane Frances bore down on the Caribbean, I was living in Miami. So many emotions go through you when you realize that all that you own, and have accumulated over the years, could be destroyed in a matter of hours. And yet, this Great and Mighty God we serve has allowed us to experience […]

Mark Out a Straight Path!

Date May 3, 2017

“Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech. Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil.” (Proverbs 4:24–27, NLT) As God seeks to transform me into the image […]
