ESTHER (Profiles In Courage)

When Esther’s words were reported to Mordecai, he sent back this answer: “Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape.  For if you remain silent at this time, relief

STEPHEN (Profiles In Courage)

But they could not withstand the wisdom and the Spirit with which he was speaking.  And gazing at him, all who sat in the council saw that his face was like the face of an angel.  Acts 6:10,15 

Often the…

ELIJAH (Profiles In Courage)

We're giving this series, Profiles In Courage, a bit of a reboot.  I enjoyed starting this topic back in 2020 as I love looking at heroes of the Bible.  My thought has been to spend an entire series (a single…

The Year We'll Never Forget

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in

What Are The Georgia Guidestones?

Many of you are probably aware of this monument.  The Georgia Guidestones are literally a modern-day type of "Stonehenge appearing" structure that is located in Elbert County, Georgia.  I knew of the stones but never took the time to research…

That The Whole World Would Hear (PRAYER POINTS)

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2 

Well we are here after a month focused on prayer, ending at a point which I think makes logical sense.  These prayer points have taken ever-widening circles.  First we looked…

Prayers For A Nation In Crisis (PRAYER POINTS)

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2 

This has been an eye-opening few weeks for me in composing these blogs.  I have had the opportunity to refocus and recenter my prayer life and I hope you have…

Lifting Up The Local Church (PRAYER POINTS)

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2 

We are at the half-way point of this month and continuing on in this series on prayer.  This has not been so much a series about what prayer looks like…

Who Do You Influence The Most? (PRAYER POINTS)

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2 

We’re just getting started in a 5-part series that is focused on prayer.  The title “Prayer Points” comes from the idea that we are intentional and specific about who and…

Extravagant Worship

And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that He [Jesus] was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind Him at His feet, weeping, she

Dear American Christian 2020 (Part 2)

We started last week with a topic that I will admit is not the most popular.  It’s not popular to talk about things like repentance and correction.  It’s not popular to mention to Christians the areas we’ve missed the mark…

Dear American Christian 2020 (Part 1)

Back in 2018, I wrote a pair of blogs that were addressed to the American Christian.  The points I felt I needed to make rendered the article several paragraphs long and it made sense to dispense with the points over…

Hope As An Anchor

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hebrews 6:19 

A steady diet of today’s news cycles inevitably leads an anxious population to turn inward, to question, and in many cases, lose hope over what…

It Stops With Me

Let me start off this week pulling back the curtain a bit on my process for writing.  Just for full disclosure!  If you’ve followed this blog for any certain length of time, you’ve probably noticed that it may lag at…

Profiles In Courage - JOHN THE BAPTIST

As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, 
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 
‘Prepare the way of the Lord, 
    make His paths straight. 
Every valley shall be filled, 
    and every mountain

Passing The Baton

You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.  Share

What In The World? 5 Things 2020 Has Taught Us As Christians

2020 has been an amazing ride so far, hasn’t it?  In a span of just a few short months we’ve seen some things that appear apocalyptic in nature.  Earthquakes, locust plagues, tornadoes, wildfires, and yes, the widespread pandemic known as…

Rome Wasn't Corrupted In A Day

(Originally posted 7-3-19) 

You’ve probably heard the phrase “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”  It’s seemingly a nod to ingenuity and development; an acknowledgment that any process worth doing or worth building takes time.  “Nothing happens overnight” is another way…

Politics, Science, And God

Wow. There are really some godless individuals in the halls of government, entertainment, and the public eye. If not for anything else, this crisis is exposing men and women for how they really think. Whether it’s mocking the Vice President…

Profiles In Courage - ELIJAH

For this week’s installment of Profiles In Courage, I’m impressed once again to look at someone whose life didn’t fall in line with the rest of the audience surrounding him.  As we looked last time at Noah, we saw…
