Deserving of God’s love?

  Imagine that you are at a healing service​ and an old drunk walks in​, and he’s wasted. He sits behind a nice grey haired lady who’s been serving in the church for her whole life. Now, both suffer from arthritis. The healing power of God is present​ and in an instant, the alcoholic, who…

It’s Not Up to You. It’s Already Done.

* The church gives (and, worst of all, the world understands it to be giving) the clear impression that grace works only on the early birds and eager beavers who cooperate with it. But that is dead wrong. * Sometimes, when we don’t receive our healing, breakthrough, restoration or miracle, we can’t help but think…

A Grace Filled World.

* The world is not against religion. In fact, it is devoted to it with a passion. It will do anything for salvation as long as that formula leaves the responsibility of salvation firmly in human hands. The world is drowning in religion…but it is scared out of its wits to hear about grace that…

To Lose is to Win.

I’ve got a little rant this morning. Over the past few weeks, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ran into fellow believers, talk about grace, and get blank stares. It’s almost like I’m preaching another gospel. I guess what happens is that the freedom we have in Christ allows us to see ourselves…

Jesus Promised.

​When Jesus left the earth it was actually to our advantage. When Jesus left, He didn’t abandon us. Instead, He left us with a promise. And not just any promise, it is THE promise! It was the promise of the Holy Spirit! “Wait for the Promise of the Father, you shall be baptized with the…

The Battle is the Lord’s – Part 3

God says in 2 Chronicles 20:15; “You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.” These are the same words God spoke to the Israelites when they cried out for help in the wilderness when being chased by the Egyptians. Today, God’s message is…

The Battle is the Lord’s – Part 1

The people of Judah honesty thought they were going to die. Three, large, bloodthirsty armies were heading their way, threatening to kill them all and take the land that God had given them. (2 Chronicles 20 describes the entire event.) But God had other plans. He intervened, setting ambushes against them and caused them to…

Get Set 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 Christian faith. When you really begin to…

Living Under Grace

I get asked all the time about what does it mean to live a Christian life under grace. My easiest answer is that when you are conscious of God’s constant supply and love for you, you are living under grace. Sometimes, though, we can’t help but be more aware of the everyday demands of life….

Jesus is willing…be healed!

Do you know that it is God’s will for you to be healed? In fact, Jesus always healed the sick who came to Him. The blind, lame, mute, deaf and demon-possessed—He healed them all! The Bible says that if you have seen Jesus then you have seen the Father.  You want to see what God…

Eating your sins?

I was recently sent a bizarre article that talked about something called “sin eating”. When a loved one died in parts of England, Scotland, or Wales in the 18th and 19th centuries, the family would grieve, place bread on the chest of the deceased, and call for a man to sit in front of the…

Only Jesus Is Altogether Lovely.

I love the symbolism of Jesus as fine flour. Leviticus 2 says, “When anyone offers a grain offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of find flour…” Fine flour comes from wheat that has been pounded and beaten again and again, and sifted several times. Doesn’t that remind you of Jesus’ sufferings and sacrifice…
