Quit Cleaning The Fish.

Scripture calls us to be “fishers of men”. We are NOT called to clean the fish when they are caught. That is God’s job. What the heck is going on in the church today? Why are our pastors and leaders so focused on getting in the pulpit and beating up the sheep about their behavior?…

Let’s Be Free.

I want to share a truth with you today that can set you free—free from bondage, guilt and condemnation. It can set you free to live in victory and be everything God created you to be. This is a truth that is the very foundation of your faith. When you really begin to understand this…

Count on Forgiveness.

What are you more conscious of today? Your sins or the fact that you have been forgiven? Don’t ever be conscious of your sins. We must always be aware of Jesus and His finished work on the cross. The Lamb of God has taken away all your sins at the cross, so count on the fact…

Don’t Walk Away.

… “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” – 1 Cor 1:31 If someone asked you right now what they must do to get eternal life what would you tell them? You would probably tell them to believe in Jesus and they will be saved. In the book of Mark, a rich, young…

You Are Counted Righteous.

What do you think righteousness is about? Think about it for a minute. Is it something you do or something you are? Is about right doing or right believing? “But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners..” – Romans 4:5 Hmmm. Looks…

Live for Today.

It’s at this time of year that people will reflect on the year and remember the good and bad things that have happened. Then, the resolutions start. Losing weight, stopping bad habits, the desire for new relationships, and all sorts of things will be focused on. I don’t have a problem with goals, but I…

You Will Run and Not Be Weary.

There are times when something horrible happens and we don’t think we can go on. Maybe we’ve failed so bad that we can’t ever go back to what we were doing. You might think you are too old to start something new. You start feeling like life is over, that there is nothing for you. Thankfully,…

You Are Worth Something

I have a great story for you guys that was just passed along to me. A pastor started off his Sunday sermon by holding up a $100 bill. He asked his congregation, “Who wants this $100 bill?” Hands went up everywhere. He said, “Ok, I am going to give this $100 to one of you,…

You Aren’t Cursed.

When Jesus died and rose again, He became our High Priest. But notice that Jesus’ priesthood is “according to the order of Melchizedek”. And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who receive Him, called by God as High Priest “according to the order of Melchizedek,” Hebrews 5:9 Why and…

How Do We Compare?

I know we are never to compare ourselves to others, unless it’s something like sports or a competition. When it comes to our spiritual walk we all have our own journeys which come with lots of unique challenges and blessings. What we have to realize is that all of us are going to make mistakes,…

Come Boldly!

“But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.” – Hebrews 10:12 Let us, as Christians, never forget that scripture. It changes how we look at life. It’s why we are different from others. It’s the very basis of our new life in Christ….

Same Father, Different Mothers.

Too often when someone is trying to recover from a life-changing moment in their life, especially when it is a devastating personal sin, they scurry around and try to fix it themselves. They think that they can pray more, study more, work harder, start more projects, etc., all to gain God’s approval and/or the approval…
