  • Do you study or just leave God tips?

    I have had two people tell me within the last week how we just need to know and follow the basics of the Bible.
    One of them was a family member and another was a close friend. Both of them basically said we just do our best and stressed that serious focus on understanding and studying the Bible was not really necessary.
    I think this is pretty common thinking for a lot of professing Christians. However, I think the Bible tells us quite the opposite.

  • If Jesus fasted, why don’t we follow suit?

    Have you ever fasted? Please email me if you have and tell me about your experience.
    I know hundreds if not thousands of professing Christians, but only one or two who have ever fasted.
    I have friends in another country that are Christians who fast often.
    Why don’t American Christians? Why don’t churches, families and your local preacher encourage fasting as a part of Christian living?

  • Closer to the sky, closer to God

    One of the most neglected symbols of the church is the empty tomb.
    With the launch sequence of Christmas already counting down, we are familiarized again with the symbols of: the manger, the shepherds, the wise men, the angels, etc. Then there’s the reason Jesus Christ came into this world: the cross.
    Where would we be without the empty tomb? It is our symbol of victory. I Corinthians 15:16 reminds us: “If Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins (KJV).”

  • Turn to God in bad times, and good

    When do we most often cry out to God?
    Usually it is in time of great need or distress. It often happens when we have had a personal loss, financial loss or perhaps a death or illness.
    Belief in God during hard times is a normal human attribute. I inherently believe even atheists, deep down, realize this whole thing isn’t one big mistake and that God does exist.
    It is certainly fine to call out to God when we are in distress, but how important is it for us to do the same during good times, too?

  • When things go bad, where do you turn?

    The book of Job is truly an amazing story.
    I often wonder how people say the Bible isn’t true or that it’s been changed or man-made.
    Such rich stories are hard to fathom being anything than other than God’s holy word in my opinion.
    I try and relate the plight of Job to my own life.
    How many times have I experienced failure or loss or problems in general and asked God why me?
    Job was a devout servant of God.
    He was powerful, successful and had many possessions and a large family.
