Men of God Produce Fruit

John 15:8 “My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. (NASB) Have you ever taught someone how to ride a bike? The process can be cruel sometimes, but the goal is the same. We want the person to ride on their own. It may take…

One More Conversation

6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. (Col. 4:6 NIVO) Have you ever visited someone who is fighting for their life in the hospital? It is difficult to watch them hooked up to cords and machines doing all the breathing for…

A Big Question

Do you know where you are going? These years that keep passing by are taking us somewhere. We can look back and see where we have been, but can we know anything about where we are going? Our personal choices have a great deal to do with where we are going. But there are two…

Men of God Live In Peace

1Timothy 2:1-4 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

Over the past several months I have noticed a severe depletion of my t-shirts and socks in their respective drawers. This is the crazy thing; they reappear on Tyler’s body. Sure, they are too big for him, but he doesn’t care. I noticed him wearing my shirts months ago as he was lying in mine…

Truth

Men Of God Leave It All On The Field

Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom. (NASB) One more attitude we need to cultivate in our lives is the attitude of giving it all we got,…

By Grace Through Faith

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith (Eph. 2:8 NIV) Faith comes from hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17). Without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6) We are saved by grace through faith. We are not saved by grace through nothing. If that were the case, everyone…

Seeing God

“In order to be equipped for what God calls us to do, we need to know two subjects in great depth: God and the world.” “In both subjects, appearances are deceiving.” “When we look at these two subjects with unaided eyes, we often underestimate God and overestimate evil.” “We don’t see what God is doing…
