Challenges

If God is for Us, Who can be Against Us?

But God raised Him from the dead. Acts 13:30

I have a lot of favorite verses in the Bible, but I suppose if I had to choose only one, it would be Acts 13:30: But God raised Him from the dead. Wow. How powerful is that?

Think about it. What can life throw at us that can’t be overcome by that statement of eternal truth?

Four Questions For Broken People

The ultimate measure of a person is not where one stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where one stands in times of challenge and controversy. ~Martin Luther King

Have you ever thought you were too weak to help?

It's easy to imagine someone who's better qualified, tempting to believe that your personal failures render you useless. We all want to conceal our dirty laundry, but followers of Christ must remember that we're called to serve where we are and to offer ourselves in that service. We're all gifted so we can offer those gifts in service to others.

Church

Note: This event occurred prior to my injury. In a time of confusion and loneliness, I wandered into an unfamiliar church. I sought a bit of peace in a sea of turmoil. I found a good deal more.

"See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared." Exodus 23:20

Singing. That's mostly what happened in Sunday night church. Familiar songs, though I hadn't attended church since high school. Someone selected a hymn and everyone sang accompanied by a piano.

Do Your Part - How to Strengthen Your Faith

2 Peter1:5-8
For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love. For if these things are yours and are increasing among you, they keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

God's Role in Tragedy

God does not allow evil and suffering to continue because He does not love us, or is in some way detached and removed from us. God takes our suffering so seriously, that he took it upon himself on the cross. ~ Tim Keller

When I speak to a group about RELENTLESS GRACE, the questions are frequently penetrating and gut-wrenchingly honest. One question is asked more than any other. "Do you believe that God caused your injury?"

Answering The Skeptics About God's Existence

Is Jesus God?
As a believer have you ever been confronted with someone who is skeptical that Jesus Christ exists or that He is the Savior of the world? How about those logical, intellectual folks that like to downplay creation for evolution? Have you ever heard the one about how people evolved from oysters?

I don't know about you, but I have a bit more faith than that. Do you realize how long it would take for a human to evolve from an oyster? More than the billions of years that they like to say the earth is old. Scientific evidence has yet to prove God does NOT exist. So the evolutionists and the creationists are in the same boat – still waiting for proof to disbelieve the other.

Asking The Right Questions

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: "If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?" But… the good Samaritan reversed the question: "If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?" Martin Luther King, Jr.

In my introductory Sunday school class I always begin with this premise: God welcomes our sincere questions.

I find that many people are surprised by the notion that faith and uncertainty can coexist. I think we sometimes imply that people of true faith don't have questions. This false message squelches the expression of honest questions and creates significant guilt.

Satan as "God of this World"

    And though this world, with devils filled,
    Should threaten to undo us, we will not fear,
    for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us.
    The prince of darkness grim we tremble not for him;
    his rage we can endure, for lo! his doom is sure,
    one little word shall fell him.1

Where is Your Faith?

Over the last eighteen years, I've been privileged, to be able to share my Spiritual experience to a vast number of people from all walks of life. I, like many of my readers struggle with everyday issues of life and in no way do I ever want to project a holier than thou persona.

Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry;
Two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
