A Will Opposed to God’s Will Brings Destruction

Some food for thought. It’s not our sinful NATURE that condemns us, but at the core, our oppositional WILL. A sinful nature cannot be anything other than what it is. Just as a car cannot be anything other than car. Yet a sinful nature leads to death. James 1:15 Then after desire has conceived, it […]

A Decision Not to Choose is Still a Choice

Some #FoodforThought for the day. Whether we acknowledge the existence of God or not, that acknowledgement or lack thereof doesn’t remove us from the perils of hell and eternal damnation. Gasp! I know… harsh words. Folks don’t like to hear words like hell and damnation bandied about, especially if they are pointed at them. But […]

Wrath of God, Holy and Just

Just doing some reading and contemplating some of the stories in the Old Testament. I know a lot of people (myself included, once upon a time) sometimes read the stories of wrath and violence in the OT, and wonder how if God is so good, can He just smite people for not adhering to a […]

Yes, I Believe in God. Do You?

I’ve been reading Romans this week during my Bible study time, and it’s filled with much wisdom and many of God’s promises that give me hope and comfort. However, it’s also filled with truths, and some of them can be hard truths to swallow, especially in our current culture. There are so many who rebel against God, […]

How Do You Handle Pesky Feelings Like Doubt?

For most folks, this can be an uncomfy question. The mere acknowledgment to yourself that you have doubts, can often result in even more doubts, and lead you down a dark road full of questions and fear. You start wondering if you truly believe like you thought you did, and are you really saved like you thought […]

Christ-follower or Christian… Does It Really Matter?

I’ve been surfing the web today, pondering on what it means to be a Christian vs Christ-follower. I used to call myself Christian based entirely on the fact that it was just what I was raised to call myself. When I began my walk with God in more recent years, learning about Him and creating […]

Are You Courageous?

I wanted to share it because it’s like a call to spiritual arms for fathers everywhere and so inspiring. I got goosebumps the first time I ever watched it! It’s my prayer that if you land on this page and are reading this, you continue to read and watch the video below and that it […]

Heart for God, Heart for Others, Heart for Your Church

This is actually something we talk about in my church pretty regularly. My church is fairly large (not ginormous, but big enough) and a regular message there is about serving others in the world as well as within your church home. Of course I am no perfect Christian and I haven’t yet bit the bullet […]

What’s This Whole “Serve Others” Thang Anyway?

I know… Why the heck do I want to serve others right? I’d rather be served! That’s kind of the mentality most folks find themselves stuck in and our society doesn’t seem to help much. Opportunities for self-gratification abound and the primary goal of most marketing is to try and sweet talk you into giving […]
