You are Useful to God

1 Corinthians 1:26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. What are the qualities God looks for in the man? What kind of people does He want? Is He looking for a towering intellect? Is He looking for born […]

Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear. God does not promise to answer everyone’s prayer. Rather, He promises to answer the prayers of those who have a relationship with Him. The very reason that Jesus came […]

A Life of Purpose

Acts 11:23 When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord. Psychologist William Moulton Marston surveyed 3,000 people and asked them, ‘What do you have to live for?’ The responses were amazing. Of the people who […]

Spiritual Nourishment

Someone said that if everyone in America decided to read their Bibles at once, we would have the worst dust storm in history because of the dust flying off Bibles. America is by and large biblically illiterate; even in the church. This is a problem because the church is the only institution Jesus promised to […]

A Dad’s Role

Colossians 3:21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. Ephesians 6:4 says, “And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.” This is directed to fathers because we are very important in raising kids. Unfortunately, too many dads are […]

When Sorrow Is Good

2 Corinthians 7:10 For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death. C. S. Lewis said, “Repentance is no fun at all. It is something much harder […]

Attitude Check

Ezekiel 25:3 Say to the Ammonites: Hear the word of the Lord God: This is what the Lord God says: Because you said, ‘Good!’ about My sanctuary when it was desecrated about the land of Israel when it was laid waste and about the house of Judah when they went into exile, therefore I’m about to […]

Have you forgotten something…

Ezekiel 23:35 Therefore, this is what the Lord God says: ‘Because you have forgotten Me and cast Me behind your back, you must bear the consequences of your indecency and promiscuity.’ Ezekiel tells the people who are living in exile in Babylon that the destruction that is coming on Jerusalem will come because she forgot God. […]

Heaven’s Call

1 Chronicles 29:15 We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace. When we are young, life seems to go slowly. Birthdays take forever to arrive. But as we get […]

What God Can Do

Colossians 1:13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. Our culture truly does not have the answers for the problems we face today. Ironically, our society seems to do everything it can to undermine the only one who can help us, […]
