– Daily Devotional

In these last days, it seems harder than ever to find people who will serve in any capacity—much less ministry–with lasting devotion. In the era of contractual service, we seek an “out clause” in almost everything we say ‘yes’ to. Marriages dissolve once the honeymoon is over; parents abandon their post and leave their children […]

    Being rescued or being saved. How wonderful those words are to the one who is in need of being rescued. The word “saved” means “to rescue somebody or something from harm or danger; to make it possible for somebody to be spared from a situation or activity and to free somebody from the […]

  “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” -Matthew 5:16 The Swine Flu is not the only thing you catch at work. Turns out you are just as likely to catch someone’s bad mood and negative attitude. Yes, the […]

  Even when I was a child, I was never a fan of puppets. As I have thoughts about this, I am not sure that I can pinpoint one exact reason that stands out in my mind that would explain this. I will say that I could always see the strings. You could always tell […]

  I walked into work on a Monday morning to find one of my co-workers absolutely beaming with joy. As I made my way over to talk to her, she lifted her left hand and flashed the most gorgeous diamond engagement ring! As I regained my sight, we both went into complete giddiness and she […]

  Anti-Idolizing “We know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This […]

    I often encounter people who assume that God sees them as worthless throwaways, deserving to be cast into the nearest hellfire, or punished by His awesome wrath. The truth is, God doesn’t see you or anyone else that way. He sees you as His beloved creation, with whom He desires to spend eternity. […]

      On His way from Bethany with the disciples, Jesus felt hungry, and seeing a fig tree in the distance, he went to see if he could find a fruit on it. Since it was not in season, he found nothing but leaves. And he said to it, “May no one ever eat […]

  Travel can be wonderful. But business travel is generally more like death by paper cuts. Last week I landed and was still a bit famished even after the eight tiny pretzels snack I was graciously given in flight. So I began to peruse the food options. I spotted a smoothie stand and that sounded […]

  When I asked the Lord, “What is it that YOU want to say this week?” He responded with, “The most important part of giving is worship.” Worship is the most important aspect of the Christian walk. It is through worship that we as believers draw near to God. It’s not all about us, or […]

  Traditionally, the church has conditioned Believers to think that being a Christian is hard work, with nothing but trials, tribulations, heavy loads and burdens. It has geared people to believe, “This life ain’t worth living, this world is no good, and thank God, hallelujah, one of these days, we’re going to heaven and we […]

    In common logic, if you are struggling to make ends meet, then you should save as much as you can. Likewise, if all you have is a little, then you shouldn’t be expected to give, right? Wrong. Let’s take a journey together to the home of the widow of Zarephath, a few hours […]
