What a Character! In an age when character is so visibly lacking in our culture, it does us well to remember that the Lord has a plan to build godly, Christian character in us. The problem may be that we just don't like the plan! Remember that He said, "'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope."††(Jeremiah 29:11) 3:55 16 FEB 2019
Sanctified Strangeness What has become commonplace in the world, greed, pornography, unwholesome language, a complete self-focus, etc., etc. is very strange to me. But I have come to notice that the people in the world find me, with a life led by the Spirit of God, different and extremely strange. A Holy difference, sanctified strangeness. 5:13 9 FEB 2019
Excited About the Lord What exactly excites you? Love, true love, will make your heart beat faster. It will put a spring in your step. It will make you wake up eager for the day ahead. It will make the mundane things of this world seem insignificant and marvelous. And that will certainly happen if the love of God is what excites you. 4:59 2 FEB 2019
The Test Becomes the Testimony When we confess that our God is in control and trust in Him, every test we face will become a glorious testimony of His faithfulness, love and power! It will all work for our good and, more importantly, for His glory just as He has promised. 5:29 26 JAN 2019
Counter Culture What Christians are should stand in stark contrast to what the world does. We have been given new life that brings with it a new lifestyle, and it should be noticeable! 6:17 19 JAN 2019
Just a Face in the Crowd? Crowds followed Jesus, disciples followed the Son of God who had the words of eternal life. Crowds left Jesus when His word became too difficult, disciples endure until the end. Crowds have an experience, disciples have a testimony! 5:46 12 JAN 2019
Confidence in God's Timing Jesus showed up at Lazarus' tomb after he had been dead and buried for four days. His timing was perfect! When Jesus was on the way to raise Jairus' daughter from death, an interruption along the way did not make him late. When Christians become impatient, it is because they have forgotten that the Lord's time is always perfect, the right time. 5:50 5 JAN 2019
Better Than New Year's Resolutions You can decide to change yourself, make yourself better, or you can get real and, like David, ask the Lord to change you. He know exactly what you should be, and He can mold, shape and change a willing heart perfecting you in the process. 6:38 29 DEC 2018
A Magnificent Obsession Living a life totally dedicated to and fixed on the Lord Jesus Christ is a life filled with true abundance, with riches that are greater than silver or gold. Anything else is vanity, empty and unfulfilled. 6:38 22 DEC 2018
Faith in Action It is clear that salvation, the free gift of God, comes by faith in the Word who was made flesh and dwelt among us, in the work that He did. But it is also clear that true faith will always be seen through our actions. Indeed, we have to both trust and obey, there is no other way. 5:59 1 DEC 2018
Ministry is... Ask a lot of Christians what ministry is and you are likely to get a lot of different answers. A more important question is who is supposed to minister; and what are the qualifications? This little video will hopefully help to answer both of those questions. And yes, it is important. 6:55 24 NOV 2018
Almost (but not quite) Real No fear of the Lord, no word of the cross, no self-denial, no 'love your enemy' - and there will be no Jesus! Like the church of Laodicea in Revelation 3 He will be outside and the people gathered inside (but not in His name) do no even notice. They just boast on how great they are doing. It's virtual reality. 6:05 17 NOV 2018
Faithful One Jesus said to His followers and to the twelve, 'Be careful what you listen to.' He often speaks the Word of truth to us in that still small voice, while in the world there is a liar who absolutely screams his lies at us. You may recognize that liar by his picture; though it may look like George Washington, Ben Franklin or even the Queen of England on the face of it! 6:29 10 NOV 2018
What Do You Want? Can you imagine what it would be like for God to ask you, "What do you want Me to do for you?" You don't really have to imagine because that is exactly what He has done, and what Jesus also said. The only caution is that you had better be careful, make that prayerful, about what you ask for! 7:01 3 NOV 2018
Victory in Jesus This becomes very practical when you are mistreated, abused, and not valued-especially in the workplace. The Lord has a way for you to deal with those people who treat you like that, and the secret is right in here. When we choose to do things His way there truly is victory in Jesus! 6:31 27 OCT 2018
Dying to Selfies We are living in the age of 'selfies' which should be a clear indication of how focused people have become on themselves. As a matter of fact the new cameras all do the focusing for you - but not on Jesus who we are commanded to fix our eyes upon. 5:39 13 OCT 2018
Forget This At Your Peril There are many things you might forget, like where you parked the car when you went into the store, and that can cause great inconvenience. Forget the all important truth that Paul taught Timothy in his 2nd letter and you will pay a much higher price! 5:55 25 AUG 2018
Pay Close Attention We all need to listen carefully and heed what the Lord says to us. Our lives depend on it! His words are the words of eternal life as the apostles said and we place ourselves at risk if they do not guide our beliefs and our actions. 6:01 18 AUG 2018
Fables, Tall Tales and Other Lies Satan, the father of lies works hard to craft his lies into acceptable fables, but the truth is out there: His name is Jesus. Don't be fooled and don't be conned. As King David prayed, 'Teach me Your way, O Lord, I will walk in your truth...' {Psalm 86:11} 5:51 11 AUG 2018
God's Word - Like a Rock His Word can be hard, but it only becomes difficult when you don't want to do it! The commandments were written on stone; the Word is written on a Rock. It is, He is, indeed the same yesterday, today, and yes forever. Let it bless you every day. 4:04 4 AUG 2018
The Good Dictator Jesus said that only God is good; and it is true without doubt that He is the only good dictator. He is after all the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Great I Am, the way the truth and the life, and as has been said, He is the lover of my soul. 6:12 28 JUL 2018
Foolish World The Scriptures say that the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, to the world, but to us it is the power of God. It is clearer than ever today that believers need the power of Godówe need the word of the cross! 5:11 21 JUL 2018
Don't Pray to Ralph You may ask yourself, "Who is Ralph?" And that would probably be what the Lord would be asking too. He might also ask you "Why?" After all, you have, if you are a child of God, direct access to the throne of God the Father through Jesus Christ--make sure that you use it! 5:55 14 JUL 2018
Return and Be Healed The Lord has a plan for life; one that often may look like a road to death. It is extreme discipline that He intends to restore and return a person to life eternal when they are headed on the wide easy way that leads to destruction! 5:28 7 JUL 2018
Liberty and the Symbol of Freedom This is a video that I filmed in 2009 that resulted from a July 1984 advertisement in TIME and many other magazines that so missed the truth that I wrote to the corporate sponsor back then. This message is a look back at that letter and the response that was sent back to me. 8:11 30 JUN 2018
