There Is No On-Hold Button With God

One of the most incredible things about God is that He’s always available to us.  It would be amazing if a person were willing to come to our aid at any time of day.  So when we consider that the One who put our Solar System in place, as well as all the galaxies with [...]

What Kind Of Day Will It Be?

What kind of a day are you going to have today?  If asked this question first thing in the morning, many of us might respond, “I hope it’s a good day but we’ll see how things go.”  Yet God suggests a different response from us.   In Psalm 18:24 David writes, “This is the day [...]

He’s The God Of A Fresh Start

One of the most difficult people to keep a relationship with is someone who holds on to your past.  When someone close to you doesn’t forgive you for previous mistakes you’ve made or reminds you of your past failures, it makes things very difficult for you.  It can bring condemnation to your life, resulting in [...]

Follow The Leader

As a young child, I remember playing a game with my friends called “Follow The Leader.”  The goal was to keep up with the first person in a line.  The first person in line also had a goal: to make it as difficult as possible for others to follow him or her!   In 1 [...]

How Can A Loving God Send People To Hell?

A common question I’ve heard numerous times over the past years is: “If God is so loving, why does He send some people to hell?”  That’s a very good question, for which I have a very concise answer: God does not send people to hell.  And to take it a step further: He never has [...]

You Put That Down!

It’s been said that the human body was not designed to carry the stresses and pressures that so many of us take on every day.  This may be a huge reason for the high amount of depression, anxiety, pain, and sickness we see all around us.  It may also be a major reason for the [...]

What’s The One Thing?

I often have people ask me, “What’s the one thing that brings success in this particular area of life?”  They may be referring to family, career, physical health, finances, ministry, or another specific area.  I usually respond that it isn’t only one thing that makes the difference, but a combination of several things done on [...]

Improving on Purpose

This world is set up in such a way that if something isn’t cared for and attended to, at some point it will definitely change…for the worse! You can see this very clearly as you drive around your neighborhood. Some yards are beautifully landscaped, while other yards are overgrown and full of weeds. The difference? [...]

Let’s Detox Our Lives This Year

For the past several weeks I’ve been teaching a series of lessons at our weekend church services called “Detoxing Your Soul.” As you’re probably aware, it’s quite popular right now to go on a detox. One type of detox is for the body, where the goal is to flush out the bad things that affect [...]

Where Is He Among Your Décor?

The birth of Christ. It’s possibly the most discussed event in human history, as well as one of the most controversial. Some would call it a farce; others have vowed to live their lives proclaiming it. Some would refer to it as a fairy tale; others have literally given their lives defending it. It’s celebrated [...]
