Are You Ready?

The question I keep asking myself is “Are we ready for Jesus to return”? I sit in the middle of a party as I watch some play ping pong. Others are playing ball and still others are throwing corn hole. How many of us have our mind on the one that made that possible? Has

You Can’t Earn It!

The burden can be heavy.  The pressure we put on ourselves, trying to live up to  the name of Jesus, is overwhelming at times.  We struggle daily with believing we have to earn our way into his arms, by what we say and do.  Religion teaches that.  As I wore my HJD shirt I noticed

Broken Chains!

Forty days.  A long time with no food.  Satan asked “make bread from stones”.  Jesus said no I want but one thing.  Satan said “being Gods son you can do what you want and your father will save you”.  Jesus said I want but one thing.  In desperation, satan foreseeing the cross simply said, “give

Come Lord Come!

Do you sometimes feel so weary.  Over the brokenness of this world.  That you  hope and pray the Lord will return?  There are days… as I try to show the love of my Savior and the patience of my King that I must hit my knees.  I pray on those days for his return.  For

To stand in the middle of Red Rocks in Colorado, as we embraced his music, brought even more emotion.  As the concert ended, I looked at the trash left by all those that call themselves “Children of God”…  I was embarrassed.  As Christ followers we

The Greatest Of These!

Love such an amazing word and yet so hard for people to say.  Why do we always relate love only to the relationship between husband and wife or family members?  Are we not called, by our Savior, to love everyone we encounter?   Are we not to practice PHILIA love to other humans and friends

Your Will Not Mine!

Do you every wonder if the way you spend your time is pleasing to God?  Lately I have been puzzled by the way I spend my time.  Everything we do in life should serve one purpose.  To bring glory to him.  If your involved in ministry, is it for your glory or his?  If you

All We Need Is Christ!

A movie this week reminded me of how often we battle each other.   I thought of the time in the book of Mark, when the disciples were arguing over which one was Jesus’s favorite.  They were arguing at the very time he was trying to teach them love… humility… and kindness. We compete on
