Nothing but the gospel gives us hope. Upon reading Paul’s second letter to the Corinthian church, that hope stands strong, because it resides in Jesus. Here is what Paul writes,
Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, ‘I believed and so I spoke,’ we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into His presence. For it is all for your sake, so that as…

From time to time, I hear someone saying, “My truth may not be the same as your truth.” Because postmodern thinking has infiltrated this generation and our Western society with its relativism, many make this statement without realizing what they say. They do not realize the problems arising from this statement. Some do, but use it as an escape hatch for shutting down an argument in which they do not wish to engage. Those shutting down an argument cannot defend their own position. Others…Continue
The Trinity. Matthew 1 - 2
Walking past her table at Women of Passion, I heard my name and turned with a look of inquiry on my face. ‘Oh, you’re here,” she said, “what in the world did you mean when you wrote ‘Jesus is the only person who ever lived before he was born!’?” I looked back into her beautiful bewildered eyes, and said, “Well . . . Jesus has always been, he just was not always a human being, right?” The bewildered look did not disappear. Then I knew I had to teach on…

While in a taxi last week heading to I don't know where, I saw this woman who seemed mature enough to be having two kids or so. Apparently the driver and I were staring at her. She was beautifully dressed and I found my self telling the driver, "You will be shocked to find out the husband is unfaithful to such a beautiful lady." What the driver said crushed my heart. He said without blinking, "Being unfaithful is a must! A man should have another woman out there" I don't remember continuing…Continue

"Will ye also go away?"
Many have forsaken Christ, and have walked no more with him; but what reason have you to make a change? Has there been any reason for it in the past? Has not Jesus proved himself all-sufficient? He appeals to you this…Continue

Another season of Spring is here
and again I’m one with the shiny rake.
Will this new tool survive the year,
before in my hand, it eventually breaks?
These annual attempts of mastering physics
of “leaf dynamics”, during the removal of leaves,
is usually a pleasant task of physical joy,
since my searching spirit is at rest and ease.
However, the annoyance of my insect entourage
of gnats, no-see-ums, mosquitoes and black flies
It’s the dawning of a new day
and my heart can’t help but sing;
Your grace and tender mercies flow
from the eternal realm of my King.
Shine the brightness of Your Light,
deep into the blackness of my soul;
direct my steps away from sin’s abyss
with Your standard of self-control.
Illuminate my spirit with the radiance
of Truth, that’s found within Your Word.
Continue to educate and edify me daily
with messages that were previously…

Clothe yourself in the full armor of God
and be able to withstand the Devil’s schemes;
know that he’s only the father of lies,
looking to destroy your earthly dreams.
Cover yourself with Christ’s Breastplate
of Righteousness and protect your torn heart;
your essence has been purchased for His Kingdom,
meaning that you’re meant… to be set apart.
Gird your waist with the Belt of Truth
and stand firm with integrity and honesty;

For us who make up the bride, there must be no fear when He appears. “But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy” (1 Peter 4:13).
Never forget that He will not surprise those who expect Him, who are “looking for and…
Take heed: Dreams in the Night. Matthew 1 -2
I invite you to pray with me a moment, or like Moses, take off your sandals, because we are standing on holy ground. ‘Lord God, I pray that you would illumine our hearts and minds; free them up to receive your words—not mine, but yours. Help us not consider these thoughts while half asleep or lackadaisically for they are too important—they are life changing, revolutionary and radical, and…

Going Home. Matthew 2.19-23
Being able to picture loved ones in their homes—especially when they are far from us—is not just informative, but reassuring and even heart-warming. Several weeks ago, I visited Dylan, who is going to college in Flagstaff, Arizona, about 500 miles from home. Seeing the campus, his apartment, the mountainous surroundings, and even scouting about the town of friendly people enables me to picture him, and see him in my mind’s…
