  • Christ is the standard by which to live your life

    What ultimately provided the missing piece for the men referred to in our previous columns?

    That missing link for them hinged on two other very important words concerning the Lord Jesus Christ: prominent and pre-eminent.

    The meanings hidden in these two words seemed to throw the door of understanding wide open. Prominent communicates the idea of one among many. While pre-eminent means there is no one else or the one and only one.

  • God’s sweet love is the veneer of all

    Years ago I had a sort of business acquaintance whom I idolized.

    I was just getting started in book writing and at the time she was one of the top names in Christian publishing.

    This woman wrote some of the funniest books I’d ever read, plus she was highly in demand as a speaker. She probably still is.

    Back then she could make audiences laugh until they wet their pants and snap her fingers and bring them to their knees in surrender to the Lord.

  • Two different meanings for submit and commit

    The men I spoke about last time discovered that their true identity as believers was paramount to change. That was the first of the keys to unlocking the secret to change. Their second discovery was the actual and literal meaning of two little words: commit and submit.

    Those two little words look the same and are often used interchangeably, but when you discover the real difference they open the door of understanding further. Discovery of their secret happened almost ten years ago for me.

  • Charleston victims and families demonstrate real Christianity

    We saw evil personified last week.

    Maybe you didn’t see it in flesh and blood, unless you were in Charleston, South Carolina, but we saw the photos and videos. We couldn’t miss Dylann Roof’s mop haircut and glazed eyes in the daily papers and in the national news.

    We should have been heartbroken. Nine people went to their church for Bible study and never came home. Their ages ranged from 26 to 87.

  • Christianity: a relationship with a person

    You never really know how people perceive what you write till someone stops you and asks a question. That is what happened after my last contribution. The question: “What was it that these men discovered that really helped them achieve change?”
    As we spoke we were able to narrow it down to three primary ingredients that helped opened the door for them. The first ingredient focused on Christianity not being a religion, but a relationship with a person. And, that person just happens to be Christ.
