We’ve got to stop asking the world to do for us what only God can. Those little screams. I still remember them. Those tears still puddling in his sweet, little eyes, and his tiny lip still quivering as they handed my infant son back to me. I tenderly cradled him against my chest trying toContinue reading “We’ve got to stop asking the world to do for us what only God can.”

Silence. That day after the Savior had died. The pounding of the nails, the jeers of the crowd, His cries of pain. Now Silent. His body in the tomb. What now? They surely longed to hear His comforting voice. But Silence. They had left jobs, families, everything to follow Him. Now what? Silence. Nothing.But.Silence. Confused,Continue reading “SILENCE”
The Question No One Can Answer For You
As the religious leaders and the crowd cheered for His crucifixion, Jesus was brought before Pilate, who finding no fault in Him, asked the question we all ultimately must ask ourselves— “What then shall I do with this Jesus who is called Christ?” Matt 27:22 The question is meant to be personal. No one couldContinue reading “The Question No One Can Answer For You”
The Two Beside Him
Those two criminals.Bleeding.Bruised.Guilty. In the Savior’s final moments, one criminal hung on each side of Him. Those two represent all of us. We are each likeoneor the otherof them. It’s no accident, this true picture. There they were.So close to Jesus.Can you imagine? They both knew who He was.But only one of them would beContinue reading “The Two Beside Him”
Silent Wednesday. It’s what some scholars call this day of Holy Week. Jesus had spent Tuesday preaching and warning, being aggressively challenged by the religious leaders and watching his friend Judas slip away to make a deal to betray him. But then there is Wednesday. Silent Wednesday. Waiting Wednesday. Jesus knew what was coming. MaryContinue reading “Waiting Wednesday”
It’s Palm Sunday
With smiles on their faces and exuberant expectation, the crowds waved the palm branches shouting, “Hosanna” which literally means, “Save Please!” and then, just a while later, that same crowd would scream, “Crucify Him!” And we question, how could they so quickly change? How could they question the famous one, the Miracle Maker, who hadContinue reading “It’s Palm Sunday”
Are some too far gone for revival?
There’s a lot of talk about revival in our country. But, have you ever wondered if some are just too far gone? Perhaps, you have even wondered that about yourself. But the thing is, not being to earn it, is pretty much the whole point of the gospel. God makes this clear when Jesus calledContinue reading “Are some too far gone for revival?”
What is TRUTH?
“What is truth?” Is this life all there is? Am I in control? Pilate surely wondered. The words of the one they had brought before him shook Pilate to his core. “My kingdom is not of this world.” (John 18:36). Pilate’s kingdom was all about this world.It always had been. Much like many of us.Continue reading “What is TRUTH?”
What about the criticism of the Revivals at Asbury and Lee and The Chosen?
I don’t know what’s happening with the revivals at Asbury and Lee Universities. These revivals have been going on for days. I know some are incredibly excited and some are criticizing. In the episodes I’ve seen of The Chosen (I’m not caught up) I’ve found the show to draw my heart closer to Jesus. SomeContinue reading “What about the criticism of the Revivals at Asbury and Lee and The Chosen?”
Love thoughts…this Valentines Day… It’s not enough they thought …the love of God. They needed God plus….an apple for Eve, a bowl of stew for Esau, If only Sarah could have a child of her own when she wanted it, if Joseph’s brothers could have Jacob’s chief affection… If the children of Israel could justContinue reading “Love Thoughts”
Why keep talking about what is so scorned by this world?
It seems some have become upset by the biblically based truth I’ve posted on this page. For years, I’ve merely studied the Bible and written what I’ve learned. I’ve received threatening private messages, unkind comments, page restrictions, and more. Many have especially not liked what I have written on marriage, abortion, homosexuality etc. It’s notContinue reading “Why keep talking about what is so scorned by this world?”
Let’s read Colossians!
The Apostle Paul sat in a prison, praying always for a church he’d not planted nor ever visited. He picks up his pen and writes one of the most famous letters ever composed to a church in the small declining town of Colosse. But this letter, to this church, is now forever part of ourContinue reading “Let’s read Colossians!”
Monday Morning Hope
Honestly when I take my eyes off Jesus, I get off base. When I look at this world, it’s the same. When I look to Jesus, it is there, and only there that my thinking becomes clear. There is only ONE hope for man. There is only One Name by which man may be saved.Continue reading “Monday Morning Hope”
Don’t believe the garbage-He is the One and Only!
A while back, a man, who calls himself a Pentecostal worship leader, garnered loads of attention for a ridiculous tweet where he said, “Jesus was ChristBuddha was Christ.Muhammad was Christ.Christ is a word for the universe seeing itself.You are Christ.We are the body of Christ.” And the thing is, many who think themselves wise, whoContinue reading “Don’t believe the garbage-He is the One and Only!”
