            Somewhere along the line, we’ve gotten the idea that when a person serves God that, it means they’re going to be poor, barely making it and just scraping by. This idea didn’t come from the Bible, it came from worldly and traditional religious thinking. We’ve been told by the world that Christians ought to be on the bottom, broke, down...

           Vexed. Perplexed. Attacked. Hated. Shot down. Grieved. Sore and hurting. Does this sound like a description of your life? Can’t you relate to this? You’re in good company. Joseph in the book of Genesis had a lot in common with you. Listen to this: “The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him and hated him…” (Gen 49:23). They...

            Ministers tend to specialize in verbal communication, but, in public opinion surveys, clergy don’t rank very high in perceived honesty or integrity. Why? Well, words alone carry the weakest part of our messages. Research tells us that more than 90% of the impact we make is based on the NONVERBAL area of communication – Our facial...

            Are you like the lazy hunter who doesn’t eat what he catches? Think about it before you say, “No!” You might be more like him than you think. Proverbs (12:27) says, “The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting…” Many Christians go out each week hunting for a teaching or worship experience, but they’re too lazy to get it...

              You know, my pastor expected me to trust him. That’s a tough one, I know right? History has shown that so many of them have let us down. He gave his word to me that he would never tell me to do anything that would put me in harm’s way, hurt me or tell me anything wrong or take my money. He told me that he would never tell me to do...

                            Have you ever felt the sting of being betrayed by a trusted friend? There’s nothing sweeter than to have a friend whom you can confine in, a friend whom you can tell anything to…knowing they won’t hold it against you, or turn on you as soon as things don’t go his/her way. On the other hand, what misery it is to have...

            O.K. You’re not perfect. So you feel like God can’t use you very much. But guess what? God doesn’t choose angels to do His work. He chooses weak, struggling humans to reach lost and fallen humanity. He chooses people who have the same drives, weaknesses and appetites as those He’s wanting to save. Jesus took on human nature so He could...

             Luke 24:49, the Lord commanded His disciples to tarry or to wait in the city of Jerusalem UNTIL they were endued or clothed with power from on high. Acts Chpt. 1:4, says again they were commanded. Notice he didn’t say they were requested – they were commanded that they shouldn’t depart from Jerusalem but wait for the promise of the...
