  • The Character of God

    06/2/2020 Have you ever had someone question the character and nature of God because of hell? The argument is this: How could God be good and still send people to an eternal hell? Why no decent human being would do such a terrible thing. I can’t trust the God of the Bible to be good, and I wonder if He is even real. It sounds like a true dilemma for a Christian, doesn’t it?

  • Speaking the Truth in Love

    06/1/2020 You may have noticed that a growing number of pastors seem to want to steer clear of controversial topics for fear they may offend or make someone feel uncomfortable. They preach love and grace and favor ... but they conveniently leave out truth and consequences. Continue reading…

  • When Fear Sets In

    05/29/2020 I hate turbulence. When I’m on an airplane and feel the plane start to shimmy and shake, I instantly get a little nervous. If I'm not careful, my mind can flood with fear. I can start thinking that the plane is going down. Fear has a tendency to make us think the worst. Perhaps you are facing some turbulence in your life right now. Perhaps fear is starting to set in. What do you do when your life is shaken? Continue reading…

  • The Desires of Your Heart

    05/28/2020 When I was on a mission trip to the Philippines, I had a great talk with special young woman who worked at the church. She was 30 years old and single, and she still dreamed about becoming a housewife. I asked her if she knew Psalm 37:4, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Continue reading…

  • Accepting His Amazing Grace

    05/27/2020 Do you ever have trouble accepting the grace of God? You know, if I am totally honest, I have to say that from time to time, I struggle with fully accepting God's grace in my own life. Now I know full well, that I am saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. But I have a strong tendency to fall into the trap of performance-based acceptance. Continue reading…

  • A New Normal

    05/26/2020 On March 11, 2011, an earthquake hit off the coast of Japan. The tsunami that followed brought tremendous devastation to the land and the people. In the span of a few short minutes, thousands of lives were taken, and cities were virtually erased from the landscape. Very few of us can relate to that kind of devastation, but all of us can relate to the storms of life that come out of nowhere, hit us hard and turn everything upside down. Continue reading…

  • How Much More?

    05/25/2020 Let me ask you an important question. How do you see God? Do you see Him as the God of barely enough, or the God of more than enough? Do you see Him as the God of adequacy or abundance? The Bible tells us that God loves to load down His children with blessings … to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think. And God likes it when we pray BIG prayers, prayers that show God we believe He is more than able in any and every situation. Continue reading…

  • Are You Rich Toward God?

    05/22/2020 Jesus told a parable one day about the farmer whose ship came in so to speak. I mean he hit it big! … and had so much grain that he didn’t know what to do. Giving it away was never on his radar screen. He decided to build bigger barns to handle his great harvest. As he looked over his goods, he thought he was on easy street, but low and behold, he died that very night. He stepped into eternity with nothing. Continue reading…

  • The Love of Money

    05/21/2020 Can I ask you a personal question? Do you love money? So many people do. They love it and they make all their decisions based on it. Money is not a root of all evil, but the love of money is. During his earthly ministry, Jesus talked a lot about money. You know why? Because “You can’t serve both God and money.” Continue reading…

  • Do You Want to Get Rich?

    05/20/2020 Years ago a friend of mine was talking to me about a scheme to make a lot of money. He said, “Jeff, I know there is nothing wrong with wanting to get rich.” Well, there is nothing wrong with having riches, but there is something very wrong with wanting to get rich. The Bible says, “Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.” Continue reading…
