    Heirs of God and Co-Heirs With Christ

    Heirs of God and Co-Heirs With Christ

    After spending the better part of an hour reciting the woes of my life to my wife, Denalyn interrupted me with a question.  “Is God in this anywhere?”  I hate it when she does that.  What had happened to me?  I was focusing on my resources.  I wasn’t consulting God.  I’d limited my world to my strength, my wisdom, and my power.  No wonder I was in a tailspin!  For such moments God gives this promise:  “We are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:17). The cronies of dismay, gloom and rejection have no answer for the promise … Listen Now

    You Have a Spiritual Inheritance

    You Have a Spiritual Inheritance

    Let’s talk about your inheritance!  As a child of God, you have one, you know.  You aren’t merely a slave, servant, or saint of God. No, you have legal right to the family business and fortune of heaven.  The will has been executed.  The courts have been satisfied.  Your spiritual account has been funded.  He “has blessed you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 1:3). Need more patience?  It’s yours.  Need more joy?  Request it.  Running low on wisdom?  God has plenty.  You will never exhaust his resources.  At no time does he wave away your prayer with … Listen Now

    Our Conflict is With Satan

    Our Conflict is With Satan

    Make no mistake… the devil is a real devil!  Every conflict is a contest with Satan and his forces.  For that reason, the Bible says, “though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4). What are these weapons?  Prayer, worship, and Scripture.  When we pray, we engage the power of God against the devil.  When we worship, we do what Satan did not do.  We place God on the throne.  When we pick up the … Listen Now

    God’s Truth Defines All People

    God’s Truth Defines All People

    Every person you see was created by God to bear his image and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.  Imagine the impact this promise would have on the society that embraced it.  What civility it would engender.  What kindness it would foster.  Racism will not flourish when people believe their neighbors bear God’s image. Will society write off the indigent, the mentally ill, the inmate or the refugee?  Not if we believe, truly believe, that every human being is God’s idea.  And he has no bad ideas.  High IQ or low standing—doesn’t matter.  First string or cut from … Listen Now

    When It’s Time to Grow Up

    When It’s Time to Grow Up

    Children have a tendency to say, “Look at me!”  On the tricycle– “Look at me go!”  On the trampoline– “Look at me bounce!”  On the swing set– “Look at me swing!”  Such behavior is acceptable for children.  Yet many adults spend their grown-up years saying the same thing.  “Look at me drive this fancy car!”  “Look at me make money!”  “Look at me wear provocative clothes, or use big words, or flex my muscles.  Look at me!” Isn’t it time we grew up?  We were made to live  a life that says, “Look at God!”  People are to look at … Listen Now

    You Are Worth Dying For

    You Are Worth Dying For

    Has someone called you a lost cause?  A failure?  Has someone dismissed you as insignificant?  Don’t listen to them.  They don’t know what they’re talking about.  You were conceived by God before you were conceived by your parents.  You were loved in heaven before you were known on earth.  You aren’t an accident. When you say yes to God you are being made into God’s image.  Print that on your resume!  In the eyes of God you are worth dying for.  Would you let this truth define the way you see yourself?  Would you let this truth define the way … Listen Now
