  When Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead He began a new creation, a new era that no one has ever been to before. “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” 1 Corinthians 15:22 NKJV Christ’s resurrection  is the most important event that has ever taken […]

Why Do We Suffer

Candace was a healthy 8 year who loved playing sports. She was very competitive and generally gave the boys a fit. I called her my little tom boy. She came home one afternoon complaining of a stomachache. We didn’t pay much attention to it until she complained about it for 3 or 4 days straight. […]

The Con is On

The key to being a good con-artist is convincing your target to believe in something for nothing. Getting him to look one way while you take him in the other way. It is your swagger that makes you believe that they have it coming to them because they are stupid.  The key to a good […]

Now is the Time

It seemed like when we were growing up, a day at school went on forever. An hour in church  would never end. I believe that I have actually seen a preacher stop time, or at least it felt like it. Time does pass faster with high school and then even faster with college. Once college […]

Staying Close to God

What are we looking for in a relationship? We are all like lost sheep, helpless and can’t defend ourselves. So we look for someone who will provide us security. Someone who will provide us food and lodging and protect us when we need be. Someone who will always be there for us no matter what. […]

A Search for Happiness

January 13, 2012 by

The three things all of us search for are inner peace, happiness and joy. The more knowledge that we acquire, the less common sense we seem to have.  The more financial security we gain,  the more insecure we become. We have the world at our fingertips to enjoy, yet we are less satisfied and content […]

There is a cliff side fortress in Israel called Masada. It was inhabited  two thousand years ago by Jewish zealots trying to evade the Roman Legions that had attacked and destroyed the rest of Israel in 70 a.d. Masada is a rugged plateau 1,300 feet above the valley floor on the east side and 300 […]

Regeneration of Your Mind

January 8, 2012 by

0

Too many times we have built barriers in our mind that prevent our own happiness. Whether it is failed relationships, things we’ve done that we haven’t forgiven ourselves for or anger we hang onto because of someone that has mistreated us in the past. We need to let these things go. What we say and […]

It’s All About the Change

January 7, 2012 by

The word in the Bible that describes this change is “Repentance”.  True repentance is feeling sorry for the sins we have committed against God.  It is the turning away from those sins and turning toward God. It is not  a fear of the consequences of sin or the fear of God. True repentance in the […]
