This Amazing Grace!

Recently, a friend of mine wrote an essay that opens by asking:

Why don’t people believe?

That’s a good question. Another question that begs to be answered is: “If things are so simple and easy, why, don’t people don’t get saved in multitudes?” Continue reading

Be An Ambassador!

As your fellowship with the Lord grows, you will see that the Holy Spirit is, indeed, calling you to be Holy and filled with His Wisdom. In fact, this is one of the reasons He was given to you! However, and this is where many of us become confused, He wants you, to be you! That’s right. He has never expected you to be as bold and faithful as Abraham or to play the harp like David or to perform the miraculous things we read that Ezekiel performed. He never expects you to possess the wisdom Solomon held or even to have the same spiritual insights Paul received. Nope, He wants you to be as normal as you are! We need to quit listening to all of those preachers telling to to be something different. Continue reading

What Do You Choose?

Ed Cole used to say, “If you’re going to straddle the fence, it’s gonna hurt when you fall off.” Ouch! (He also said, “A Christian’s purpose is to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” But I’ll save that for another message) Continue reading

Life From Death

I want to remind you of something Jesus said. It is found in the fifth chapter of John:

“Jesus said to them, “I assure you that the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. What the Son does is always modelled on what the Father does, for the Father loves the Son and shows him everything that he does himself, Yes, and he will show him even greater things than these to fill you with wonder. For just as the Father raises the dead and makes them live, so does the Son give life to any man he chooses. Continue reading

Go When Told

We have no idea who wrote the letter to the Hebrew church. If someone tells you otherwise, they are incorrect. But that being said, in the eleventh chapter, it tells us something about Abraham. It reads, “The proof of Abraham’s faith is that he obeyed his God. Yahweh told Abram to go to the land that God had said would be his, and he left for a country he had never seen” (Hebrews 11:8).
