Is Going to Heaven Like Moving to Florida?

Is Going to Heaven Like Moving to Florida?

Do you anticipate the return of Jesus with anxious dread or hopeful anticipation? The Bible reminds us to look for our redemption because it’s near! Jesus teaches us that we should not be afraid. We should be ready. God is moving into our neighborhood! He’ll be the best neighbor ever…

A Psalm for the Ages

A Psalm for the Ages

We need to remember the spiritual resources God provides. In our quest for the next “thing,” we sometimes overlook the tried and true, unchanged and consistently helpful; that’s Psalm 23. Psalm 23 tells us about the Good Shepherd. He will restore your soul, and you’re invited to dwell in the Lord’s house…

Gone Fishing

Gone Fishing

A fishing trip provides the context and the opportunity for Jesus to make his third post-resurrection appearance to his disciples. Because of Jesus, they catch a lot of fish, and Jesus serves them breakfast on the beach. They are still processing all that is happening when Jesus and Peter take a walk…

Your Truth? My Truth? Whose Truth?

Your Truth? My Truth? Whose Truth?

How do you decide what is true? It makes all the difference in our lives how we come to a conclusion about the truth. It has enormous implications for all of us. If we make the right decision about truth, it leads us to peace we did not know was possible. If we make the wrong decision, confusion reigns supreme.

He Is Risen!

He Is Risen!

Death, our mortal enemy, no longer has power. Resurrection gives us life and hope, and peace. We no longer need to fear anything! Jesus paid the price for a world trapped by the evil one and opened the door to new life, now and forever. Trust Him!

Why Did Jesus Have to Die?

Why Did Jesus Have to Die?

The two big things God did for people. Those two goals are really the big picture focus of the entire Bible. In many ways, the entire story of God working in the lives of His people comes down to two big ideas. And they are big! Today we focus on why a death was necessary for salvation and specifically why Jesus. Hint: it wasn’t because…

My Two Sons

My Two Sons

One son brought shame to the family. He embarrassed his father and then had the audacity to return home. The other son remained faithful and felt rejected when the father welcomed his rascal brother home. The father explained, “He was lost and is found.” If you’re...

The Patient Gardener

The Patient Gardener

It’s not about how bad you are or have been, it’s what you do about it right now that matters. Jesus didn’t use that expression but he said it straight up: “Repent or die.” Then he told a story about a barren fig tree. It’s our story and a warning…

God commands us “Fear not!”

God commands us “Fear not!”

With great bravado, you might proclaim your fearlessness. Or you might hide your fear because God commands us, “Fear not!” And by hiding your fear, you hope to obey God’s command. The antidote to fear is the fear of God. When we fear God, we put our other fears in their place!

The Practice of Wisdom

The Practice of Wisdom

We must not let sorry rascals teach us how to live. The story of Joseph from Genesis teaches by example. Joseph even though sold into slavery by his brothers forgave them. He believed and reminded them that what they intended for evil God intended for good. That’s the way of wisdom. That’s the way to peace with God…

The Antidote for Death

The Antidote for Death

There’s an antidote for the fear of death. It’s the Easter story that never ends. Easter never ends. Resurrection never ends. Resurrection puts fear in its place. Resurrection gives hope for life now and life to come. Resurrection; the antidote for death. Believe in resurrection deeply. Proclaim resurrection widely…

The Most Important Message From the Bible

The Most Important Message From the Bible

If you only had a minute to speak with someone, what would you tell them is the most important thing God wants us to know? The Bible actually tells us what is most important. The Bible tells us that his most important message leads to what we need most. So since we all need it, let’s discover what the Bible tells us…

Christians Fighting the Evil

Christians Fighting the Evil

This week we consider fear. How can we avoid fear when we hear about so much terrible stuff? We also consider what Christians should be doing to fight the evil taking over our nation. I call this an instant sermon. What do I mean? Instant Sermon is not to add water to...

What in the World was Abraham Thinking?

What in the World was Abraham Thinking?

What is God asking? What kind of God asks such a thing? What was Abraham to do? Without hesitation, Abraham set out to the place of sacrifice. The good news is there’s a happy ending. The profound insight comes from understanding the nature of covenant and how God fulfilled his covenant promise with His Son…

Covenant, How We Get Along with God

Covenant, How We Get Along with God

The least understood concept is the most helpful illustration of how we relate to God. Through covenant partnership, we know the benefits of walking with God and what God expects.
