Be A Life Giver With Your Tongue

Is Your Mouth Full of Life or Full of Death?

There are times when someone else says something you’ve been feeling and even trying to express much better, more elegantly than you’ve been able to utter.  Today in my inbox I received this post from Desiring God and that was the case.

Mark Driscoll Sermon on Hell - Sneak Peak

Mark Driscoll Sermon on Hell – Sneak Peak

I’m a fan of Mark Driscoll.  Because he’s a fan of Jesus, the Bible and absolute truth!  🙂  Anyway, Mark Driscoll is halfway through sermon series on Luke.  This is no ordinary sermon series…he’s taking almost 3 years (106 weeks in all) and he’s over a year and a half in.  This coming Sunday he’ll […]

love earth too much

Do We Love Our Life Too Much?

I used to fear the return of Christ. Then, at some point later in my walk, the fear of His return turned into resistance for lack of a better word.  In other words, I had (and have) a great life here on Earth and so while I would have told you I loved Jesus dearly […]

What Does It Take To Waste Your Life?

What Does It Take To Waste Your Life?

We were designed to have one passion, and that this passion will lead us to the joy we all truly long for. The cost will be great. But the joy is worth any cost.

It's Crazy...Isn't It?

It’s Crazy…Isn’t It?

Have you ever felt like we were missing it?

It’s crazy if you think about it. The God of the universe – the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles…galaxies and E-minor – loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what’s our typical response? We go to church, sing some songs and try not to cuss.
