The Uniqueness Of Each Person I’m always amazed when I think of how God created a world that’s filled with incredible diversity and variety. There are different kinds of colors, tastes, sounds, foods, scenery, animals, ideas, types of leisure… (and the list just goes on and on). But one area that is especially intriguing to […]

This just happened too fast. Yesterday I was changing diapers and today I am buying sheets (extra long) for a dorm bed.
Ok, so most of us are planning a family gathering on Thanksgiving. Some of you are most likely wondering if there is any way to avoid the tension and stress as families unite, cooks pack the kitchen, and people arrive bearing side items and desserts. I’m honestly not bothered by the chaos. However, there are […]
Are we alone in the universe? For centuries people have wondered about the place of mankind in the vastness of space. Ancient astronomers calculated the movement of the constellations, wondering if there was some connection between the stars and people on earth. Now, with the development of long-range telescopes, the observable universe has expanded significantly. […]
Introduction God’s character is described in detail throughout His Word. Sometimes when we read Scripture, we have a difficult time reconciling the words that describe God with our own understanding of God. This may happen because our knowledge of God has been influenced by factors which caused us to develop a false view of Him. […]
The Attributes Of God A.W. Tozer, a revered Pastor of the last century, wrote, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” He realized that how we think and feel about God affects how we relate to Him. And as Christians, our relationship with God should […]
What is the truth about where we came from, what life is about, and where we’re going? Think about how vast the mysterious universe is, and how impossible it would be to know all about it. Now consider that we have brains that just weigh about three pounds trying to figure it all out! You […]
One of the most wonderful things about God is that He wants everyone to know Him. Everyone! But there are many people in the world (over 6 billion), and most of them live in places where there is limited or no access to the Bible. Does that mean that most of these people can never […]
Are you stuck in a rut? Having trouble dealing with that one person at work that knows just the right button to push, and does it just for sport? Do you have trouble letting go of the small things that happen throughout your day, so they pile up and stress you out? I think we […]
Laying good foundations takes time and effort, but the benefits are worth it. The new believer needs to embrace experientially the truths related to knowing and understanding God and other believers.
At the heart of the gospel is the idea of righteousness before God (Rom. 1:17), but that word has little to no meaning outside of the church world. We may try and talk about it, but it ends up sounding like righteous-nonsense. What is righteousness, and why should the world care?
The Sunday evening services at my church have been dedicated to the Psalms since the beginning of the year. Last night we started on Psalms 18. As I was listening to the sermon, all I could think was “God is my Superhero.” Superheroes are more popular than ever before. Everyone wants a hero who will […]
If you’ve been in an evangelical church on a Sunday morning in the last 10 years you may have noticed the backgrounds behind the lyrics on the screen. These are ultra-beautified scenes designed to stimulate people’s sense of beauty and pleasure… A dew-laden glen, sun streaming through trees, a child on a swing. They are […]
When I personally experience the Father’s love and the Holy Spirit’s active presence in my life, THEN I gain the power to do the scariest things imaginable. It’s not a pep talk or a kick in the pants or a biblical education that gives me courage. It’s a deep unshakeable knowledge that Daddy loves me […]
In this Pocket Principle, we take a look at the human genogram by going back to the original mother and father of humanity and studying how their behavior affected every person born since.
Understanding People begins with Understanding Myself. We are created in the image of God. Who we are effects how we treat others as well. This pocket principle helps us consider how others view humanity vs how Christianity describes us.
When I was growing up, I dreamed of one day becoming a Nuclear Physicist. I’m still not exactly sure where this dream came from, but I know that I was always amazed by the power that nuclear energy represented. I remember being so intrigued by the idea that by manipulating this infinitesimal speck, an atom, […]
“Run Forest Run”- That often seems the best advice on how many managers, parents and friends manage conflict. But is avoiding conflict really the best way to manage it? When we avoid or run from conflict rarely do we see it go away. Sure it might go away for a while, but all to often, […]
The goal of apologetics should never be to convert others (that is the Spirit’s job), but it is to honor Christ as Lord in our hearts. This happens, very often, with our mouths. And in the end, for everyone the bottom-line issue isn’t an intellectual objection but hope objection
Do you hear people say they saw God and wonder why they see him and you don’t? Do you want to see God and feel he is evading you? Do you need to see God to help you make it through the day? If we want to see God, we must seek him. God has […]
