  • Forgiveness

    Are you lugging around a sack of unforgiveness? A theology class normally didn’t involve vegetables, but today would be different. The professor asked each student to bring in a clear plastic bag full of potatoes, and it couldn’t be a sandwich bag. He told everyone to think of people they were unwilling to forgive, and [...]

  • A Double Yoke Pt. 2

    In our last moment we considered how Christ will bear our burdens if we’ll learn from Him as He takes the lead. Once we learn to yield to His desires and direction, we will be able to recognize the enemy’s yoke that shackles and binds without restful consolation. In fact, one of the deceptions of the [...]

  • A Double Yoke Pt. 1

    “Come unto me, all ye who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-29). Why [...]

  • Face to Face

    In his book, Missional Church, author Darrell L. Guder writes, “Complex, modern society is a reality for everyone in North America. No one has escaped being shaped by its pervasive influence. It has become the very air that we breathe.” Perhaps most indicative of the heart of our North American culture is Guder’s assertion that we [...]

  • K-nots of Constraining Love

    Lately I have been reading about the Christian women in China, Pakistan, and India whose husbands are not believers. They are in danger of unthinkable abuse. But Arona was not afraid for her life. She lived for Christ openly in front of her always-drunk and abusive husband. She did not preach to him but was [...]

  • Worth Your Salt

    Did I ever tell you that I came to know Jesus in a salt factory? It was during the summer of 1977 while I was working at Morton Salt Company in Silver Springs, NY. Ten years later while attending seminary I landed a job as caretaker for the family who owned International Salt Company. You [...]

  • The Miracle Choir

    What kind of skill set do you need to serve God? Each of us has been given gifts by a loving God. I believe it is one of God’s greatest pleasures to see His children use His gifts in productive and creative ways. I happen to know of some gifted individuals who are among the [...]

  • The Push of a Button

    When you’re tired, isn’t a soft recliner and your favorite TV program the perfect activity? Researcher Robert Morse believes TV saps cognitive strength. He contends that the consequences of TV are analogous to the situation in nursing homes where inactivity leads to cognitive impairment. After an hour or two of TV watching, people come away [...]

  • Five More Minutes

    I heard a story recently about a father who seemed to have all the time in the world. Every weekend he sat on a bench near the playground, watching the kids play while his little girl rode her bike in endless circles around the park. After an hour or so he would stand up and [...]

  • No Risk No Reward Pt. 2

    In Ecclesiastes 11 we read, “Give a portion to seven, or even to eight, for you know not what disaster may happen on the earth.”  Before we probe into the meaning of this passage, I would first like to share a story that may help in our understanding. Recently I heard about a 94-year-old investment [...]
