Addicts Need a Meeting - #6804
Now, our support group is a support person. We cannot stay away from sin unless we have our meeting - yeah, our meeting with God - regularly. The day you skip your meeting is the day you start to slip. We're not talking about some legalistic ritual where you have check the box Christianity: Read my Bible and prayed. No, not doing your duty. It's a love thing.
Getting Close to a VIP - #6737
You'll know that you're becoming like Jesus when you start to lose your fascination with people who are powerful, or those who can do something for you. You're becoming like Jesus when you feel yourself wanting to be with the people He thinks are important; not the ones the world says are important. The ones the world sees as powerless and unimportant.
Keep the Child Alive - #6732
The first snow? Christmas? Amusement parks? They may or may not bring out the child in you. But knowing Jesus, trusting Jesus? That should keep the child alive in you. And I am so grateful that what Jesus did for us He said requires simply the faith of a little child to possess it. What He did on the cross, dying for our sins, loving us enough to pay the penalty we deserve, that that is something a child can grasp, and theologians can explore the depths of.
The Trouble With Microwave Believers - #6723
You know, you could be becoming a microwave believer. You might be cold on the inside. And cold on the inside just isn't worth serving to your Lord. That's not what He wants. What He cares about is the warmth inside in your heart.
No Big Deal - #6719
Lavish what you have...all the little or all the much on Jesus. Maybe the problem is pride. But then, how could you do any less for the Lord. Don't be proud; it's no big deal to give all the little that you have for the much that He gave you.
Catching Up With a Great Vocabulary - #6643
I'm afraid sometimes we become a believer; we learn the words and then we settle back and hide behind answers we really don't understand and we certainly don't know how to live. Even leaders; we just get more sophisticated in our rhetoric, but oftentimes the reality just doesn't match. It's as if, "Well, we're okay if we know the words, right?
The Hug That Gets You Through The Night - #6585
God is the Daddy that we've always wanted to hold us. And His is the hug that will get you through the night. He's reaching for you. Reach for Him.
More Of Us Than Ever - #6554
Exponential growth of souls on this planet is not just some fleeting headline; it is a mandate for the people of God. All of us, each of us, to pray differently, give differently, even plan our future differently. We certainly cannot explain to God "business as usual" because God so loved the world.
What I Found Hiding in the Christmas Story - #6511
The Great Commission of Jesus came with His birth. It was His final word before He left. Whatever the years before have been, let's let 2012 be, as never before, the "Year of our Lord" 2012. The year each of us fulfills our destiny, fulfills our Lord's orders to make sure the News about Jesus gets to "all the people" we know.
Give the Medicine Some Time - #6430
Don't try to make that loved one take a whole bottle of spiritual medicine all at once. Lovingly give a dose of truth, and then back off and let God grow it. Give the medicine some time.
