But He reaches back to the Shema, Deuteronomy 6:5 where He sums of all the Commandments and all the laws. He’s saying, “If you want to obey all the law; if you are concerned about being right with God, just love Him with all your passion and feelings, love Him with your will and love him with all your thoughts....Keep Reading

The first principle of Experiencing God is: “God is always at work around you.” One of the ways He works is in our hearts to desire and to do His good works. Blackaby says something real interesting about what happens after we see God work: “We immediately become self-centered rather than God-centered.” He describes how this is an invitation for us “to adjust our lives to God.”...Keep Reading

Too Much Love?

We are told to love each other with a genuine love. This kind of love, real love, does not have a limit. We don’t say, “Well, that’s enough love. I’ve reached my quota. You’re good for the week.” Just like you don’t keep a record of wrongs with real love, you don’t keep a tally of how much I’ve shown love....Keep Reading

It seems like too many church-goers today are satisfied with just that, going to church. Church attendance is not the extent of our purpose. Our purpose in this life is to know God and the Lord gives us direction here. “Let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow Jesus.” To deny self does not mean to deny things. It means to give yourself wholly to Christ and share in His shame and death. ...Keep Reading

We may not be leading thousands into the Promised Land, but God has a plan for your life and we all have our challenges. Best of all we all have this promise to go along with the plans the Lord has for us: “be strong and courageous to do all His Word has told us to do.” ...Keep Reading

God With Us

Sometimes we wonder if we’re making a difference, know that He makes the difference and He loves to use His children in making that difference. We all want the new year to be fulfilling, but we never find fulfillment in the search for fulfillment - we find it in serving the One that fulfills....Keep Reading

...Abraham had to leave his good life behind and follow God to the place He would show him. Are you willing to follow Jesus wherever He leads? Are you willing to let go of some things? Are you willing to repent of some things that are holding you down? When He is Lord of your life, when you have a relationship with Jesus, when He is more important than anything else in this world, you are willing to follow....Keep Reading

Real Love

Too often, we get familiar with an someone and we begin to take them for granted. We’re all guilty of this to different degrees, but as we grow in our faith in Christ and commitment to Him, this should improve. We have to get away from the shallow, “be praying for you,” and “love you,” and move on to love in action and truth....Keep Reading

What We Do Know

I’m not that different than many that will read this. Terry and I have lost friends, grandparents, my parents, her father, a little brother, and our son, Jordan. It’s only by the grace of God that I’m somewhat sane and Terry and I are still married because of the stress involved. By His Grace, God has helped me so many times. And when I’ve not been what I need to be, His Grace has healed and strengthened my heart, my commitment, and my spirit. He’s just that awesome! And though I’ve experienced deep pain where I cried out until I was empty, I’ve been blessed beyond my ability to express. He has given me perspective and compassion through my painful losses to the point where I have grown and experienced real joy....Keep Reading
