In doubt

Doubt happens to the best of us. I know we sometimes put people on a pedestal like famous preachers, authors or even mature Christians we know and then criticize ourselves with comparisons like "I bet they are too spiritually mature to doubt like me. I wish I was more like them." But the truth is, they do have times of doubt because we all do. We have times of doubt when tragedies strike for no reason or prayers go unanswered or we get mistreated for trying to do the right thing, etc. We wonder if anyone else struggles with the ...

Just a thought: The Golden Rule

Is the "Golden Rule" biblical? Yes, but not because it is a "golden rule" but rather because it is a "Kingdom principle." Many people miss the point here. They want to live by the golden rule (and that's fine), but not really according to the Kingdom rule. Ah yes, we are talking about the pickers and the choosers. Jesus asked it this way: "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?" (Lk. 6:46) In other words; "Why do you call me Lord when in reality I am not your Lord?" or, "Why ...

Get your hands dirty

The church is failing in a big way! Yes I am aware God has, and continues to use, the church to reach the lost and minister to the world in mighty ways. However, one of the greatest and most foundational tasks given to the church by Christ is one of the things the church is neglecting the most - "discipleship." I have often said, "We are outraged at the idea of someone abandoning a newborn and we should be, but yet the church does this everyday to those who are newly born again."

Just a thought: Get your hands dirty

Could a doctor treat a patient without ever examining them? Not very well. Could a hair dresser cut or style hair without touching the client's hair? No. In the same manner neither can Christians be of very much influence if we don't go to and touch sinners. I know many have come from places in their lives they don't ever want to go back to and this certainly takes some sensitivity and discernment. But neither can we isolate ourselves from all sinners once we become a Christian and still be an effective witness. Jesus' model of evangelism ...

Just a thought: Open the box

Open the box. No, really, open the box. You're probably saying, "What box?" To which I would respond the box we all have. You know, the one we keep God in. Ah, now you get it, don't you? We all have a God box. The box is our image of God, His size and ability. Some people's box is bigger than others, but we all have one. Some are limited in size and we call them "the willing box" or "the God can't use me box," some have a "God can't do that" size box ...

Just a thought: Lord, you take over

Isn't it true that we spend most of our time operating in our own strength and power? When was the last time you said, "Lord, You take over…" and wasn't it after you had given it your best and your best wasn't good enough to get it done. We often fall into the trap of thinking "This is what I do, and I will do it…Spiritual and impossible things are what God does and when I need help with those things I'll turn to Him." But just as it was for Peter, it is for ...
