He has summoned all the moral authority of his office to call for the professional handling of the wreckage.

Make your ‘after’ greater than your ‘before’

I’m sure you’ve seen them before, the pictures of huge, overweight people who discovered the perfect diet and then appear in magazines saying, “I lost 143 pounds in just 100 days!”The difference is jaw-dropping.You naturally share their sense of pride and respect their discipline. As a boy, I read muscle magazines, determined to be the next Mr. Universe. I was the “before picture” — the average body shaped kid who dreamed of a ba...

Are you getting, keeping peace in your soul?

Years ago, a certain TV commercial pictured a man vacationing at a beautiful, mountain-lake. He was wearing a lifejacket and held an oar in one hand. Standing on the pier, he raised his hands and proclaimed vigorously, “Now I can have peace to enjoy my vacation!”The reason for his newfound peace, according to the commercial, was because he has purchased a security system for his house.But, I wonder … if the man would ever think about the possibility of ...

Do not starve because you do not hear well

Through the prophet Amos, God declared about the day when there would be a great famine in the land. It would not be a famine for food or water. Rather, the famine would involve “the hearing of the words of the Lord.”This famine is certainly taking place today, not so much as it concerns the world at large, but specifically as it involves the people of the church. This famine of hearing God’s Word is spreading because church groups are pervasively emphasizing only...

A Hunger for More

“Going home is never easy,” I once heard someone say. I’ve also heard that once you leave and set out on your own path in life, “you can never really go back home.”I’m not sure that such sweeping statements apply to every situation, but they certainly applied to the Lord Jesus who did go back to His “hometown” in the days of His earthly ministry. He was born in Bethlehem, spent a very brief time in Egypt (when Herod the Great was tryi...

Living for, with Christ in your life changes your looks

I am not sure when it was started, nor do I remember the circumstances for starting it, but my Uncle Harvey and I, years ago, started referring to one another as Number One and Number Two.Uncle Harvey was Number One and I was Number Two. It was just a little humorous ditty between the two of us that provided the basis for laughter within our families over the years.Recently on Sunday night about 10 p.m., I received a call from Aunt Thelma. When I saw the name of the call...

Relationship with God integral for successful marriage

On July 9, my wife and I celebrated 26 years of marriage. How awesome is that?I realize it is rare to find couples that last this long in a marital relationship. On the positive side, it makes us feel like an accomplished and successful couple.God has blessed us, not only with four amazing children who are all serving the Lord, but also with a peaceful and united marriage relationship. God has blessed us with the ability to live a successful marriage relationship.

A Hunger for More

Faith is a tricky thing. And much of what is tricky about it isn’t merely in whether or not we have it, but also in whether or not we understand what it is about it that is actually pleasing to God.If by “faith” we simply mean religious activity or affiliation with a religious body (e.g., “I go to such-and-such church”) then we’ve totally missed what God means by faith. Is it really important to get this right? Is it truly necessary for us to und...

Is Jesus Christ coming or not?

Can you tell me whether or not there is going to be a second coming of Jesus Christ?This question is one that either stirs ridicule of rejection by secular humanists, generates heated theological debate among the intellectuals, or brings a sense of comfort within the church ranks of the evangelicals, which was Apostles Paul’s particular point.

A Hunger for More …

There is a weight to sin that the eye cannot see and the mind cannot imagine. It is so burdensome that it cannot be upheld by even the strength of mountains. It brings with it a veil of murky darkness that chokes the soul, murders joy, and smothers hope.Like spiritual cement shoes, this weight, encumbering all of human life on planet earth, drags its victims into grave waters of eternal separation from the presence of Holy God.And although sin was not native to Him but w...

Sometimes we all need a little ‘shaking’

Have you ever felt the tremors of an earthquake? That type of shaking can get your attention in a hurry.There are many testimonies of people in church services where they have seen the place caught on fire to the point of the fire department showing up to put the fire out, only to discover that the fire was that fire of the Holy Spirit – not a physical fire.There have also been instances where the place of a prayer meeting has become so full of the presence of God ...
