            The Bible tells us about a time when there will be naked Christians and I’m not making this up. In fact, it was Jesus who was warning us and telling us not to be caught naked! In Revelation 16:15 says, “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” Jesus was...

            Glory Days when you first come to know Jesus, there’s an aliveness about you. A newness. You’re excited, full of joy and wonder. Your friends notice that you’re different and they ask you what’s happened. They say something like this: “Hey! What’s happened to YOU?! Your attitude, your face, your smile. What’s HAPPENED to you?! They may...

            One day, a few years ago, I read about a local so-called minister who was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury for charges of fraud, corruption and obstruction of justice.

I was tired and bored and I remember I had been eating snack food for the last hour or two. My belly was full, the heater was on and I was comfortable. Next thing you know, I was jarred from out of my sleep...

             A lot of good churchgoing people are going to be surprised. They’ve been hanging around for years, waiting for God to judge the rest of the world. They don’t pretend to be the best of Christians, but at least they’re not like all those lost people out in the world.             Ok, so they don’t come to all the services and they don’t...

            “Thou hast been weighed in the balance and found wanting…” What awful words! Especially when uttered by God, who loves you and cares for you more than any other being in the universe. “Your life has been measured against what I created for you to be and you’ve come up short!” Just one sentence, short and to the point, summing up the...

            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...
