A Strand of Three

A Strand of Three

I have heard it said that most people deny the claims of Christ for moral reasons and not intellectual ones.1)I think Ravi Zacharias states this. When I consider the wealth of evidences that converge to confirm the Deity of Jesus the Messiah my heart often aches for those who fear to face the real malady […]

I Wonder…Do You?

I Wonder...Do You?

Just watched another fantastic fairytale: Rise of the Guardians!  As usual I am so entirely enveloped, that to even explain what I experience while watching such a tale (or reading one) is to invite slight puzzlement as most see such tales as simple child’s play.  Yet there is a “deep magic” in myth, undeniable truth, […]

Tear to Stand

Tear to Stand

“And when the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, he rent his clothes” (2 Kings 22).  Josiah’s response was direct and decisive.  Josiah’s response was the only response.  His heart was so torn that the only way he could convey his brokenness was to violently tear his garments.  He took the […]

A Poopy Diaper

A Poopy Diaper

My son is about nine months old and he is not yet potty trained.  When he was younger he couldn’t really stand to have a poopy diaper.  It was really quite amazing.  As soon as he would finish taking care of business he would look at you with pleading eyes saying, “Please take this smelly […]

Podcasting: Have You Been Brain Washing?

Podcasting: Have You Been Brain Washing?

I am such a big fan of brain washing! In fact I have found it to be a daily necessity. Have you been brain washing? During one of our staff meetings a few days ago we were discussing how to go about building up faith and resolve. The realization that was echoed and reechoed was […]

Perspective

Perspective

As I stood there in the arena beneath the bleachers equipped in my fight gear, taking a break from warming up, I looked out towards the cage and beheld time.  The announcer was introducing a karate star of old.  In his prime he had won multiple titles including several world karate championship titles.  He had […]

Good is to Faithful as Wicked is to…

Good is to Faithful as Wicked is to…

In one of Jesus’ parables there are three servants who are each given a large portion of money to care for while their master is away. The first servant receives what equates to about a 100 years worth of wages. The second servant receives about 40 years worth of wages. The third receives about 20 […]

30, 60 or 100 Fold

30, 60 or 100 Fold

“Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop–a hundred, sixty, or thirty times what was sown. He who has ear to hear, let him hear.” If you have been a believer for any amount of time, chances are you have encountered this passage. And chances are you have contemplated how you […]

“My Heart is in This!”

God said, “I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.” How would you like for God to say something like that about you?  I definitely would!  David was a man of passion!  David was a warrior!  David was also a man who committed […]

Asahel

Asahel

I have read about Asahel before and I had always identified with him because he was fast. I loved track and I imagine that Asahel would have too. But when God guided me to identify with the death of Asahel I was, needless to say, quite confused. “Now Asahel was as fleet-footed as a wild […]

Our Lives Are Living Fairy Tales or Dying Tragedies

Our Lives Are Living Fairy Tales or Dying Tragedies

Our lives are living fairy tales or dying tragedies! The question is, whose script are you following? Are you following that tale of destiny and ultimate hope that ends with eternal life? Or are you following that self-published tragic tale that ends with the full realization of hopelessness? Do you agree with Macbeth when he […]
