JESUS--God's Way In The Manger For Us

JESUS God’s Way In The Manger For Us! not happening...impossible…preposterous…crazy…ridiculous…out of the question  What are the first thoughts that come to mind when you think of God being among us? I’m not talking about a manger with a helpless, little baby. I’m talking about the God of the universe—the great “I AM” —hanging out in our manger among the best and worst... Read More

u—weren’t meant for the desert #-2 the conclusion

u—weren’t meant for the desert #-2 the conclusion Now the real work of deliverance begins. How do a million slaves become a nation? How will they eat when all the food rations run out? What about water, clothes and SPF-55 suntan lotion? And btw, what are the rules and where did Moses say they where going? They had questions with no answers at least none that satisfied them. So they began the nice habit of groaning, moaning, and complaining in the desert. But God had a plan... Read More

u—weren’t meant for the desert #-1

u—weren’t meant for the desert #-1 "Moses my servant is dead. Get going. Cross this Jordan River, you and all the people. Cross to the country I'm giving to the People of Israel. I'm giving you every square inch of the land you set your foot on…Strength! Courage! Don't be timid; don't get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take." Joshua 1 (MSG) I’ve wondered for a looong time—why would any group... Read More

Memorial Day

Memorial Day: REMEMBER  Hey it’s me again… I’ve been wondering about Memorial Day. Is it a day for—great bargains at the local shopping center…family Bar-B-Q’s…opening pools…starting the summer…the beginning of the linen wear season…(you’ve got to be a clothes person to get that one honoring fallen military heroes…remembering deceased loved-ones…national expressions of patriotism or maybe all of the...

Solitude 101

Silence & Solitude 101 • The God of The Gentle Quite Whisper Then he was told, "Go, stand on the mountain at attention before God. God will pass by." A hurricane wind ripped through the mountains and shattered the rocks before God, but God wasn't to be found in the wind; after the wind an earthquake, but God wasn't in the earthquake; and after the earthquake fire, but God wasn't in the fire…  I’ve been...

Revelation Part 2

revelation #2 keeping the main thing the main thing As I've continued to dig deeper into of the book/letter/vision that is the apocalypse -- revelation of Jesus I've re-discovered something that's pretty amazing. It's not something that you get by just reading the popular books or watching the cable network shows of the so called end time experts. In fact, if I just listened to their cable shows and/or read their books I could easily have come to a completely opposite... Read More

Revelation Part 1

REVELATION....reclaim. recycle. renew. reuse. recreate. renovate I've been studying the Bible book of Revelation recently as I prepare for a summer speaking series entitled: REVELATION-reclaim. recycle. renew. reuse. recreate. renovate. Revelation is one of those books/letters that students and older folks alike have a real interest in. The Bible book/letter of Revelation has been the most requested speaking topic during my time in ministry. It has also been a topic that I've... Read More

Sabbath 101

SABBATH GOD’S GIFT TO ME… The older I get the more I like the idea/promise/command of Sabbath. I exist in continuing mode of fast paced living so I seldom have time for “real rest”…whatever that means. That’s why this week’s topic of Sabbath is intriguing to me. Can I really do rest and feel good about it? What will happen if I slow down and take some real time to reflect renew and reconnect? Will the work get done and the bills paid? And what... Read More

One Prayer 2

Reformation Gone Wrong -ONE-Prayer #2 Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, So they might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me. John 17:23 (The Message) LifeChurch.tv one of the most plugged in churches in USAmerica, has challenged the Church by asking it leaders an important question. What if you had only ONE-prayer to pray on behalf of the Church--ONE-prayer for the Body-of-Christ what would it be? Honestly, the Church could... Read More

Prayer 101

Prayer 101: Gurus, Pictures & Habits? Prayer...so easy and yet so hard... I believe that prayer is the most important of all the spiritual assignments. There is no relationship of Christian faith without prayer. Prayer is our primary mode of communication with the God who loves us and wants us to finish well. The assignment of prayer should be easy enough after all most of us were taught to pray at an early age. Do you remember this prayer… Now I lay me down to sleep, I... Read More

One Prayer 1

Just [ONE] Prayer? Life Church, (one of the most innovative churches in the country), is partnering with hundreds of local churches globally to do a message/talk/sermon series simultaneously called: ONE Prayer. The premise of the series is, "If God would answer only 'ONE prayer' for the church at large, what would you pray?" Let me explain it this way. You're walking down the street and something shiny catches the corner of your eye. You go towards it and you see a... Read More
