lifestyle evangelism

If you have been around me enough to know my thoughts and feelings, you know that I am really big on lifestyle evangelism. That is winning people to Jesus by the way we live as much as by what we say. I have heard a saying that goes like this, “I can’t hear what you are saying because what you are doing is speaking too loud.” I think you all can see the meaning of...read more

knowing the mind of god

It is a common belief in many Christian circles to believe that it is next to impossible to know the mind of God. Except for special conditions, and a select few believers, the mind and ways of God are a mystery that most believe will remain unknown. Even though this is a widely accepted truth, it is a sadly mistaken acceptance. The reason that it is so sad is that it is just not true....read more

the great rewarder

I don’t think that any of us have any doubt about the first part of this scripture being true. I have heard it quoted over and over. It is the battle cry of many of the believers in the faith movement of today.Yet, this is only a part of the real promise and blessing to us as believers. Notice that this verse says also that if we are going to get our needs met and...read more

be sober and vigilant

This scripture is a very important admonition to us as Christians, yet it is so ignored and neglected by the majority of believers. I am convinced that most believers fall into two basic categories regarding the existence and works of the devil.The first group does not really believe in a personal devil. I had a professor in a Christian college tell me when I was in school that there really isn’t a personal devil, there...read more

what’s the plan?

You have probably heard the saying, “You have to plan the work and then work the plan”. Also, there is another saying that goes hand in hand with this first one, it is “failing to plan is planning to fail.” It is pretty obvious what these are talking about, they are saying that it is very important to have a plan of action if you really want to accomplish much of anything.The same is true...read more

a miracle for you

It is being said by many modern theologians of some of the main denominational churches that the days of miracles have ceased. It is bad enough for these to deceive themselves and to miss out on the excitement of seeing God do miracles in their own lives, but even sadder is the fact that they have taken the faith from so many other believers. This loss of faith has created a group of believers who...read more

what a privilege

I wonder how many believers have taken the time lately to simply thank God for the privilege of being saved. God has done so much for us and so many just seem to take it all for granted. It is almost as though people think that God owed them their salvation or that He is in some way responsible for their individual sins. You know what I mean, people say things such as, “Well, God...read more

more than mere men

It is expected that believers grow and mature in Christ after they are born again. There should be noticeable maturity in the life of each and every person who becomes a Christian. The idea that a person gets born again and then never grows toward maturity in Christ is just not Biblical, although it has been a problem in the Church almost since its conception. This is the problem that Paul is addressing here in...read more

the sovereignty of god

There is no doubt that the traditional view that is taught concerning the sovereignty of God is robbing many Christians. It is immobilizing faith and stealing away victory. Don’t get me wrong, I believe in the sovereignty of God, I just don’t believe in it the way that I hear most everyone talking and teaching about it. This includes Christians and non Christians alike.The dictionary defines sovereignty as supreme power, the greatest in rank. I...read more

the source of conflict

Many of the struggles in our lives are not mere accidents! They are also not put there by God. Our challenges very often come from the hand of our enemy, Satan. He is the enemy of our soul and his one purpose is to keep us from living the life that God has planned for us. Even though we may already be a Christian, he does not stop his work against us. He knows that...read more
