Haven't you heard that directed at you at some point in your life? Maybe it was from your Middle School gym teacher (like me). Or maybe it was from the Army doctor who forced your discharge on a medical waiver (like me). Or maybe it was from your Religion department ch...

We are all waiting.

We wait for the screen to resolve.  We wait for paychecks. We wait for questions to be answered. We wait for the next Apple creation.  We wait for the light to change.  Sometimes we wait with patience.  Other times, we press.  Mostly, we wait for goo...

Once Jesus announces His kingdom is near, once He gives us a glimpse of it through deliverance from demons, miraculous and compassionate healings, awe-inspiring teachings in the synagogues, all showing that the “year of the Lord’s favor” had begun, He went up into a mo...

The first message of John the Baptist was “repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near. (Matthew 3:2).  The same is declared by Jesus as He launches His public ministry (Matthew 4:17).  Upon that announcement, disease, injustice, and demons are routed and scattered, as J...

Upon His Father and Holy Spirit attended baptism, Jesus is led (or “driven”- Mark 1:12) into the wilderness for temptation.  Already, we have questions, don’t we?  Does God tempt us?  Why would Jesus be sovereignly led to a place of weakness and temptation?  Alfred Ede...

Why did Jesus get baptized?  Have you ever wondered why the sinless Son of God, participated in John the Baptist’s baptism of repentance, if there was no need of repentance?  When Jesus approaches John, he states, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”...

Writer James Davis once said that the average church member’s understanding of the Holy Spirit is so vague it is nearly non-existent.  I would adjust that thought by saying, we have a lot to learn, and a lot more to apply when it comes to being people who are sanctifie...

Have you ever been there?  Choosing to tune out a message in church, or even from a friend in your small group Bible study, because you say to yourself, “this does not apply to me”?  Why do we tune God out?  I do not think it is because He is boring, but more rather th...
