  • Putting Down the Whip

    01/24/2020 As a young monk, Martin Luther wanted nothing more than to please God. But, like the rest of us, he struggled with sin.

Now, I don’t suppose you are whipping your back over your sins, do you beat yourself up emotionally and mentally over failures from the past? Continue reading…

    01/23/2020 Have you ever met an atheist? An atheist believes there isn’t a God. While a Christian wouldn’t be guilty of being an atheist, many Christians are guilty of being practical atheists.

  • Looking Up to the God Who Loves Me

    01/21/2020 When I was in college, on my way home from studying at the library, I would look up into the night sky and think about the greatness of God.

  • Does God Like You?

    01/17/2020 When my wife and I first started dating, my future mother-in-law was less than thrilled. She thought I was all wrong for Debbie, and she made no bones about. Well, she loves me now, but have you ever had to be around someone who did not like you? Awkward, isn’t it? Let’s face it: we do not like to be around people who are disappointed, disgusted, and displeased with us Continue reading…

    01/15/2020 Have you ever been to a great seminar? Seminars are worth every penny if there is an “aha” moment, a moment of true enlightenment that really ends up making a lasting difference. Now in life, tough times are never fun times. Yet the Bible tells us to “consider it all joy … when you encounter various trials …” (James 1:2-3). Continue reading…

  • Believe it or Not ... You Are Loved

    01/14/2020 I often talk to people who have a hard time believing that God loves them. They don’t think they are worthy of His love. Does that describe you? In John 15, Jesus says to stay connected and abide in His love. Without question, the most important thing in your life and mine is to believe this truth: God really does love us with an everlasting love. Continue reading…

  • Beauty for Ashes

    01/13/2020 Stephen preached his heart out in Acts 7. The religious leaders screamed in protest and stoned him to death. To the Christians, it was as if life had dealt them a plate full of ashes. Have you ever felt as though your dreams have burned up and there is nothing left ashes? In Isaiah 61 it says, “He will give beauty for ashes, joy instead of mourning, praise instead of despair” (Isaiah 61:3) Continue reading…
