When Your Best is Not Good Enough

May 31st, 2011 | By | Category: Featured Articles, The Kingdom of God

One night, in family devotions, I was reading to my kids from a Bible storybook about Cain and Abel. In this author’s rendition of the story, Cain’s offering was rejected because it was not his best, while Abel’s offering was the best he had to give and therefore acceptable to God. It suddenly hit me […]

What are We Waiting For?

Feb 19th, 2011 | By | Category: Evangelism & Missions, Featured Articles

I heard a minister recently talking about the rapture and trying to make the point that every prophecy necessary to the return of Christ has already been fulfilled. One of his points was that the Gospel has already been preached in all the world according to the promise of Jesus in Matt 24:14 (And this […]

The first word of the Great Commission is, “GO…”When Jesus used fishing as a metaphor for Evangelism, he revealed to us something about his chosen model and paradigm. What does evangelism mean to Jesus?  To be a “fisher of men” implies releasing the moorings from the bollard, pulling back the anchor, pushing away from the […]

Money Follows Ministry

Mar 6th, 2010 | By | Category: The Kingdom of God

Ministry today is often viewed as a profession, a career and an occupation.  We have been reminded quite often that “the laborer is worthy of his hire” (Luke 10:7) and that we should not muzzle the ox when he is working (Deut 25:4).  When I preach about the call of God into the ministry, the […]

Reaching Out To The Striped, Speckled and Spotted

Feb 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: Scripture

Jacob had a get-rich-quick strategy. He made a deal with Laban, his father-in-law that rather than being paid in cash for his shepherding services he would receive as payment all of the imperfect members of the flock; all the striped, speckled and spotted cattle, sheep and goats. [...]

Happy Blasphemy Day!

Oct 3rd, 2009 | By | Category: News, Philosophy & Science

A couple of days ago, atheists from around the country celebrated “Blasphemy Day”. As one website encouraged them to: “…admit to committing blasphemy against all gods. Religion is mythology. Gods are lies. Preachers are liars (yes, all of them), and anyone who believes in magic men in the sky are fools. Please take a moment […]

Way-Side Evangelism & The Battle for a Generation

Sep 13th, 2009 | By | Category: Culture

The Angel in Acts 11 told Cornelius to send for Peter “Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.” There is an incredible power in words. James says that “Life and death are in the power of the tongue…” [...]

“Why Do More Miracles Happen in Africa?”

Aug 31st, 2009 | By | Category: News, The Kingdom of God

Unbelief often infiltrates our hearts in the most covert ways. Sometimes we don’t even realize that it’s there. It is good from time to time to take stock of our own belief system to see what is based on God’s Word and what is simply something that we have heard repeated, even by godly leaders, and accepted as fact.

One of the most common questions that people ask me is, “Why do these incredible miracles happen in Africa but not in the [...]
