Going Back to Where You Went Wrong - #6860
Biblical repentance always goes hand in hand with restitution; making things right at the point where you went wrong. To restore the money you stole, to rebuild the reputation you tore down, to ask forgiveness of the person you hurt, to go back to that person you sinned with sexually and ask their forgiveness. If you want to avoid falling again, retrace your steps.
No Specifics, No Solutions - #6857
God calls us to specific repentance. We may have to go back and clean up a sin that we buried instead of dealing with it, maybe a long time ago. Until you've really brought it to the cross, you should not forget it. Once you have brought it to the cross, you shouldn't remember it, because God has forgotten it forever at that point.
The Dumbest Order In History - #6839
Jesus is this very day, healing families that nothing else can heal, crushing Satan, lifting up the oppressed, protecting the vulnerable, reshaping nations, steering history, He's shattering addictions, He's defying disease, and He's making sinners like me into living proof that He is alive.
Closed Doors at Christmas - #6772
Jesus said, "I have longed to gather you together, but you were not willing." And that tragedy continues today as Jesus tries to get into a life that He came for that first Christmas; that He died for on Good Friday - maybe yours. He paid such a high price for you. He loves you so much He doesn't want to lose you. He died to pay for the sin that would cause you to be shut out of Heaven.
Destiny in the Drudgery - #6766
Commit yourself to a daily God hunt; to look for Him as He reveals himself somewhere in today's everyday stuff. So go with your eyes wide open into each new day; there's destiny in that drudgery. When Christ is your Lord, everyday stuff isn't everyday stuff.
Delivering Someone Else's Packages - #6765
I can row into this storm right now because God's power will be the difference, not mine. So, relax. Even if you're in the middle of mission impossible right now, God is getting the solution ready. All you have to do is be available to deliver someone else's package.
Christmas is For Losers - #6763
Aren't you glad Christmas is for losers like you and me? Let's be sure that Christ comes to some people no one else comes to. He'll come to them through you, and they'll come to you to bring you into His family.
Pushed to the Edge by Christmas - #6761
Only your relationship with Jesus Christ will last forever. It may take some courage, some discipline, some hard choices, but Jesus Christ must once again be crowned the King of your schedule. And your time with Him? The base non-negotiable of your personal schedule. He's saying, "I want My time with you."
Someone's Been Talking About You - #6727
You are not traveling this road alone. Someone's talking about you. Jesus is talking to His Father about you. Man, that's good to know. That makes all the difference.
The "One More Thing" Syndrome - #6695
"Just say no." That's not just good for drugs. It's good for us responsibility addicts too. I'm one. I know. The next time you're tempted to over-commit yourself, think of that trunk that's jam packed with all that it should hold.
