    Someone Cares

    Someone Cares

    My book, You Are Never Alone, is a child of the quarantine. I completed it during the days of the coronavirus. Covid-19 was unknown to most, but that’s all changed. This crisis exacerbated an already rampant epidemic of isolation and depression. One study found that loneliness is as dangerous to one’s health as smoking fifteen cigarettes a day. It can lead to dementia or Alzheimer’s, heart disease, a weakened immune system, and a shorter life span. Administrators of one of the largest hospitals in America cite loneliness as a major reason for overcrowded emergency rooms. Patients want to know that someone cares. Don’t we … Listen Now

    God’s Got This

    God’s Got This

    John recorded a montage of miracles that proclaimed, “God’s got this.” Think it’s up to you and you ain’t much? Hogwash! You’re stronger than you think because God is nearer than you know. Jesus touched wounds. He spoke words of hope. Blessings were bestowed. There was a message in his miracles: “I am here, and I care.” Had Jesus wanted just to make a case for his divinity, he could have materialized a flock of birds out of thin air or caused trees to uproot and float away. He could have turned creeks into waterfalls or rocks into bumblebees. Such deeds … Listen Now

    John’s Chosen Miracles

    John’s Chosen Miracles

    John, likely knowing his days are coming to an end, takes on one final task. Mark’s gospel is in circulation, Matthew and Luke have compiled their accounts of the life of Christ, and John wants to do the same. Yet his gospel will be different. He seeks to tell stories they didn’t and to add details to stories they told. He selects a cross section of signs. John’s chosen miracles run the gamut from a wedding oversight to a violent execution, from abandoned hopes to buried friends. We watch a paralytic stand up and a blind man look up. And … Listen Now

    Decide to Believe

    Decide to Believe

    Belief happens when we place our confidence in God. It is a decision to lean entirely upon the strength of a living and loving Savior. And to the extent that we do, we will have “life in His name.” This is the purpose of the miracles. John the Apostle recounted signs in this promise: that you and I are never, ever alone. Was this not one of the final promises of Christ? Before he ascended to heaven, he assured his friends, “I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20 ESV). Those words must have meant everything … Listen Now

    You Aren’t Alone

    You Aren’t Alone

    Are you convinced that no one cares, that no one can help you, hear you, or heed your call? If you know the feeling, you aren’t alone. I don’t mean you aren’t alone in knowing the feeling. I mean you aren’t alone, my friend. That raw, dark sense of isolation and powerlessness? It’s not here to stay. If you think it’s up to you and you ain’t much, John the apostle has some stories for you to ponder. He interwove a tapestry of miracles that were “written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and … Listen Now

    You Have Nothing to Prove

    You Have Nothing to Prove

    Satan and the Son of God stood on the southeastern wall of the temple, more than a hundred feet above the Kidron Valley, and Satan told Jesus to jump into the arms of God. Jesus refused, not because God wouldn’t catch him. He refused because he didn’t have anything to prove to anyone, much less the Devil. Neither do you. In church, of all places, Satan will do with you what he did with Jesus. He will urge you to do tricks…to impress others with your service, make a show of your faith, or call attention to your good deeds. Satan loves to turn … Listen Now
