My God Why Have You Forsaken Me?

My God Why Have You Forsaken Me?

I think it is safe to say that the number one fear people have today is being alone. That tops the fear of heights and speaking in front of people. To be forsaken, which means left alone by ourselves, can be devastating. It was devastating when Jesus was left alone on...

With Jesus in Paradise

With Jesus in Paradise

If you ask any person on the street if they are going to heaven, they will most likely tell you that they are, if you ask them why they will tell you because they are a good person. Everybody wants to be with Jesus in paradise, but the two thieves on the cross show us...

Father Forgive Them

Father Forgive Them

We are entering Holy Week, where we look at the events leading up to the cross. Often, I like to write on the last sayings of Jesus on the cross. The next five days will be five of the seven last sayings Jesus uttered before His death. Today we look the first thing he...

Living with Power-Packed Faith

Living with Power-Packed Faith

With no sports on TV for the foreseeable future, channels like ESPN are scrambling for programming. I was hoping that they would harken back to the early days of the channel and show the World's Strongest Man competitions. There is nothing like seeing men pulling...

Power to Pardon

Power to Pardon

The leaders of most countries have the power to pardon criminals from their crimes, free them from their prison sentences. With one small declaration and a signature, that person who was incarcerated is now free. In an instant, their lives change. While those crimes...

We Need More than Bread

We Need More than Bread

Have you tried to buy flour lately? Every grocery store that I go to is completely sold out. Sure, you can purchase almond flour and coconut flour, but those are cheap imitations of the real thing. When a crisis hits, people fall back on those things that are...

Where the Power of Christ Dwells

Where the Power of Christ Dwells

The Apostle Paul was a man who moved in the power of Christ. The New Testament is lined with how God worked through him. The Holy Spirit's anointing was upon him on his missionary travels, but he discovered where the power of Christ dwells. It was in the place he...

Go the Extra Mile

Go the Extra Mile

When you decide to serve others, you will be required to give more than you expected. This will happen because you will see the need is more significant than you first thought, but also it will be to make people happy that will never be happy. Jesus encourages us to...

Too Big for Your Britches

Too Big for Your Britches

My grandpa used to have a saying that he used on his grandkids when they were getting too much attitude. He would say, “you’re getting too big for your britches.” It meant that we were getting a little full of ourselves and needed to be brought down a few notches....

Choose Your Battles

Choose Your Battles

There is a popular saying today, “Not every hill is worth dying on.” The basic gist is that you need to choose your battles, not every argument or disagreement is worth the time or energy you need to put into it. That is a lesson you have to learn early in ministry;...

An Opportunity to Give

An Opportunity to Give

We have an unprecedented opportunity to give to those in need. With millions of people losing their jobs and out of income, we are being presented with a great need that we can fill in a straightforward way. Food banks are in need of donations, neighbors need...

Hearing the Voice of the Lord

Hearing the Voice of the Lord

There are so many voices out there that it is hard to know who to trust. We can listen to those who share the same political views we do, or we can listen to our favorite celebrities. Hearing the voice of the Lord in times like these can be challenging. We need to...

Choose to Become Poor

Choose to Become Poor

Everybody is interested in the rags to riches story. We value people who put in the hard work and make something of themselves. At the same time, we often look down upon those who had it all but lost it due to drugs or other bad choices. Most people would choose to be...

Abundant Joy in Affliction

Abundant Joy in Affliction

Each day is a new challenge as we receive direction from our governments. The threat of having to be restricted to our homes for an extended period is a distinct reality. That presents numerous challenges for families as they navigate having kids at home, getting...

The Light that Leads to Life

The Light that Leads to Life

You never realize how much you rely upon the sun until you go through several days of rain. The cloud cover and dampness make you cold no matter what the temperature is. You want the sun to break through the clouds and remind you that it is there. The same can be said...
