SEEING GOD's GLORY
In order to be able to see God's glory, there are some things that may need to be changed.
We do not have to wait for Judgment Day to hear the verdict.
HOW TO SEE JESUS
When and where do you see Jesus?
Are you able to see Jesus in the face of a strung-out meth addict?
Can you see Him in the face of the street beggar trying to con you out of a dollar?
Do you know how to escape the Great Tribulation?
There is only ONE reason the Rapture has not yet happened.
THE GIFT OF GIVING
GIVING needs your heart. Tithing needs your head. God wants your heart.
Have you achieved all that God has given you?
INEFFECTIVE BAND AID
People try all sorts of things to repair a life that is out of balance, but most of those things never work.
Expectations are the number one cause of disappointment
A failure to forgive might possibly be a factor in the many ills facing our society.
There are some images planted in our brain which we can never unsee.
You alone hold the key to a peaceful co-existence with others.
In at least five places in the NT we are told to realize that we are one with everyone, and yet we continue to classify others as to their level of righteousness.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE?
Stop looking at what you DON'T have. Let God use what you DO have.
DEFINED BY DNA
Can your DNA be changed? What would happen if it were?
LESSONS OF THE KINGDOM
Is our western understanding of a kingdom the only possible reality?
A BIG THREE LETTER WORD
People like to say that they believe the Bible from cover to cover, but when this word is used, they have to make changes to what is meant.
Have you ever been so low that it felt impossible to look up?
A LICENSE TO SIN
Some folks believe that teaching grace gives people a license to sin, but the exact opposite is true. Grace takes away the license to sin.
THE WAY WE WERE
It is sad that so many believers still live in the past when God says they have left all that behind. You are not your past.
Is it possible that we have the idea of religion all wrong?
Is what we do in line with God's desire?
IF the Great Commission is for all believers, then we are doing it wrong.
THE DAM IS BREAKING
Man-made restrictions on the Spirit of God has never worked long-term, because God simply will not be bound by rules and regualtions.
If it weren't for the many times that God intervened on my behalf, I would be in a completely different place.
What about you?
What would've happened to you if it were not for the contradiction of "BUT GOD"?
YOU CAN'T GET THERE FROM HERE
Is the Christian path the only correct one? What about those who have chosen another way?
What will happen to them?
THE GOOD SHEPHERD
We probably know more about cattle than we do shepherds. However, we do know about Jesus being the Good Shepherd.
A RATTLING OF BONES
The resurrection of Lazarus and the resurrection of the house of Israel have something important to teach the Church.
BUY A LOVE COVER
Owning and using a Love Cover requires that we see things differently from the norm.
WHEN I WAS SAVED
When I could not give the exact time and date of my salvation, I was made to feel as if I had never truly been born again. That is utter nonsense and something I hope you have not experienced.
MUST and MIGHT
These two words go to the heart of the gospel. The two words do not mean what we usually take them to mean.
A CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY
Murder, adultery, drunkenness, lying, stealing are not sins, but symptoms.
There is something significant about Moses and Elijah and their disappearing act on the Mount of Transfiguration.
THE GOSPEL OF YODA
In one of his most famous lines, Yoda manages to utter the heart of the gospel.
THE MAGNANIMOUS MYSTERY
God, in His magnanimous all-inclusive love has included you in the divine dance.
NO BRAGGING ALLOWED
Is it wrong to brag? If not, then what should we brag about?
Why does Christianity have so many branches? Differentiation and variety have been markers of Christianity since the very beginning. Apparently, there has never been a united Christianity.
THE LAMB OF GOD
John the Baptist had no idea what he was saying when he first saw Jesus on the banks of the Jordan River. What did the Jews who heard him think?
BATTERED, BRUISED and BROKEN
May your heart be softened so that a bruised reed you will not break.
GRATITUDE FOR THE GIFT
It is a strange idea to consider suffering to be a gift.
Joseph, the foster father of Jesus was declared to a righteous man even though he did not follow the letter of the law.
What are we to make of that?
Having patience doesn't mean you learn to wait. We ALL wait. It's HOW we wait that reveals the patience or impatience of our character.
What are the three monkeys really telling us?
WAITING FOR NOAH
While many will point to terrors in the world as being a sign of Christ's soon return, Jesus said these signs meant nothing in the grand scheme of things.
THE KING OF PEACE
Our guilt and debt for sin has been canceled. Once we realize the truth of that, we will have peace in our world.
NO STONE UNTURNED
When will the temple be rebuilt in Jerusalem?
RESURRECTION—A FOUNDATION OF FAITH
Skepticism and cynicism often accompany any talk of a future resurrection of humans.
The idea of living again after one has died goes against the rational mind.
However, for Christians, belief in the resurrection of the body is part of the foundation of our faith.
A NEW COVENANT
There has never been anything like this covenant before, because it completely eliminates any responsibility on our part.
Being right with God has nothing to do with us or our behavior, but it has everything to do with Him.
THE DESPISED TRIBE
Systemic racism is nothing new. Prejudice is nothing new. That fact, however, does not make it acceptable. Jesus was confronted by those for whom racism was a way of life. How did He deal with the problem?
TOO GOOD TO FORGET
The downward spiral into which the mullygrubs sends us can be stopped if we will recall one of the great promises ever given to the people of God.
