Jesus is the Door

In John 10, Jesus makes two very important “I Am” statements about being the Good Shepherd. John 10:7-10 tells us one of those. It says, “Therefore Jesus said again, ‘Very truly I tell you, I am the door for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and […]

I Need No Man to Teach Me

It never fails and it happened again.  Whenever someone quotes a certain part of 1 John 2:27 (always out of context) to me I know they are using it as a license to interpret the Bible any way they like – twisting the Holy Scriptures to support their false claims.  Here is […]

A Hindered Prayer Life

How effective are your prayers? Are there certain things that can harm the prayers you pray? All of us want prayers to be answered. Why else would we pray them? Truth is God always answers. We just get troubled when His answer is contrary to our request. His answer is […]

Need More Patience?

Name some of the most impatient situations you’ve ever been in.  I bet they involve traffic and anything that has to do with waiting in a line.  I remember waiting in line at Disney World on a family vacation.  An app on my phone told me approximately how long we […]

Which Bible Translation is the Best?

I recently had someone ask me a great question. “Why are there different versions or translations of the Bible and which one should I use?” Great question! At first thought one would wonder why there are so many versions in English alone. We all understand different languages so people of […]

Get Back to the Basics

Everyone loves ice cream.   My favorite is homemade chocolate ice cream – two cans of sweetened condensed milk, a gallon of chocolate milk, and a little vanilla extract and WOW!!! That’s a simple recipe with a big flavor. But ice cream flavors aren’t as simple as vanilla and chocolate anymore. […]

The Simplicity of the Gospel

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 is a clear example of how God uses people not based on their talent or ability but on their obedience and willingness to have the Gospel shared through them. Let’s take a look at this passage one verse at a time. In verse one, Paul says, “And […]

Heaven

A man was teaching a children’s class about heaven.  He asked, “If I sold my possessions and gave it all to the poor, would that get me into heaven?”  They all answered, “NO!” “If every day I cleaned the church, would that get me into heaven?”  Again, they answered, “NO!” […]

A Church Without Walls

I am loving how our church is stepping up and becoming a church without walls – real salt and light.  Matthew 5:14-16 in The Message Bible says, ““Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret […]

Easter Brings Life

“But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 15:57 Easter is about Jesus’ resurrection from the dead after dying for our sins on the cross at Calvary.  While many will hide eggs, give presents, and have family meals, Easter isn’t […]
