Remember Lot’s Wife


No one has ever spoken like Jesus.  Take all the great orators throughout history, and not one of them can come close to the power with which Jesus spoke.  So if he is speaking then we should probably listen to what he is saying.  When I see red letters in the Bible I pay close […]

The Key To Overcoming Anxiety


Anxiety rules our world.  From the most powerful people in the world, to the very poorest people in the world, no one is exempt from anxiety.  The problem, especially in America, is that we have built lifestyles that revolve around impatience.  We don’t want to wait for anything.  By the time one thing is done […]

Relative Truth?


Let me answer this question from the very beginning.  There is no such thing as relative truth.  You either have the truth, or you don’t.  It’s not a popular thing to say in today’s culture, but it is true nonetheless. I will prove it to you.  All you have to do is look at the […]

Live And Learn


I have learned many things in life.  Some have been simple lessons, such as not touching a hot stove with your bare hand.  Others have been more complicated, such as learning that when your wife is hinting at something she is really telling you that you should just do it.  We live and we learn […]

He Chose Us


As I sit here on a rainy morning I can’t help but think about the grace of God.  It has been a constant on my mind lately.  My mind almost immediately goes to the question, why choose me?  Out of all the people that God could have chosen, why am I the one that he […]

The Discipline of the Lord


“Whom the Lord loves he disciplines.” Ouch. Those are not the words we really want to hear from the Bible. Yet these words reflect the attitude of a loving Father towards his children. Discipline isn’t a bad word, it is a necessary word. Many people read blogs, and even the scriptures, to feel better about […]

David: A Character Study


It would be difficult to do a character profile of important people in the Bible, and not mention David.  He was a key member in the ancestry of Jesus Christ.  He was also the greatest king that Israel ever had. There wasn’t much about David that was impressive.  He was anointed king, but only after […]

Paul: A Character Study


The Apostle Paul accomplished a lot in his life.  He traveled the known world preaching the gospel.  He was thrown into prison for the cause of Christ, but he continued to preach anyway.  His resume would dwarf the resume of any other preacher who has ever lived.  Yet, there is also no other person who […]

Lives That Matter


Everyone wants to live a life that matters.  No matter who you are or where you are from, we all want to make a difference.  I recently concluded a Bible study in which I did character profiles of important characters in the Bible.  One of the driving things of all of them is that they […]

Why Forgive?


There are certain words in Christianity that make us cringe.  Words and phrases like “sacrifice” or “love your enemies” are things that we don’t really like to talk about. The word “forgiveness” is also one of these words.  But just because we don’t like to talk about them doesn’t mean they are not important.  Usually […]
