Suffering for the Gospel

I’ve been reading an incredible book by G.K. Beale and Mitchell Kim, God Dwells Among Us. In the book they quote J Hudson Taylor, “It does not matter how great the pressure is. What really matters is where the pressure lies—whether it comes between you and God, or whether it presses you nearer His heart.” […]

Staggering Promises to Colossal Failure!

Yesterday I wrote about Solomon’s colossal failure at the end of his life. As you read through 1 Kings you soon come across someone who may be the greatest example of waited potential in the Bible. God judged Solomon’s sin…He said, “Since this has been your practice and you have not kept my covenant and […]

Finish Well!

It is always heartbreaking to watch someone start well and finish poorly. I can think of no better example of that than Solomon. He started well and God rewarded him like He rewarded no one else, but he finished horribly. God told the people of Israel that they were not to marry the people surrounding […]

“It is Finished!”

Last night we looked at three words uttered by Jesus from the Cross, “It is Finished.”  Surgeon said this about those words,—“It is altogether immeasurable. It is high; I cannot attain to it. It is deep; I cannot fathom it.”  One of the questions we sought to answer was this–when Jesus said “It” is finished, what […]

“Camouflaging Greeds to look like Needs”

Kirk Franklin recently said, To die with untapped greatness inside of you is a sin. To miss the moment you were created for (outside of knowing God and being known by Him) is a travesty. The evening news is filled with headlines of scandals because character was not the main agenda. I agree you cannot […]

“I’ve Known Grace”

  Yesterday someone sent me a link to a sermon on grace by Ray Cortese. It would be worth your time to listen to his sermon and you can find it here. It was an incredible sermon on grace, but I think the thing that stuck me the most was a story he told at the […]
