Forgive As You Are forgiven?

  Every time we pray the Lord’s Prayer, I am always struck by these words: “Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors” (Matthew 6:12, KJV). Really? Do you really want God to forgive you in the same way you forgive others? I didn’t think so; neither do I! But what I do... -Read More


The Battle Within

One of Satan’s most destructive schemes is to convince the believer that all is well, and there is nothing to be concerned with. “You’re doing so much better than that person over there,” the serpent slyly hisses. “You don’t need to worry about making any particular changes in your own life.” But this is... -Read More

Shortest Verse . . .  Deepest Meaning!

As I’ve trained student athletes over the years, I have enjoyed asking them for their favorite memory verse. Invariably, the majority of them would be quick to recite from memory the shortest verse in all of sacred Scripture, John 11:35, “Jesus wept.” I find it quite remarkable that our Lord Jesus Christ wept.

The Dash!

When you read the title of this month’s message, what came to mind? The word dash can define many different things, from a splash (dash) of water, to a small amount of an added ingredient for a recipe, to a footrace usually shorter than a quarter-mile. However, I have a word of wonderful encouragement... -Read More
