Purpose Life can seem mundane. Life is in fact mundane. The sun rises and sets. Generations come and go. The winds run in their circuit. The rivers run continuously into the seas, but the seas never fill. Man’s work is never done. Man is never satisfied with his work. Solomon set out to understand everything done under heaven and concluded that all is vanity. He pursued wisdom, madness and folly and might as well have tried to grasp the wind.…

Revival David describes God as his “strong refuge”, his “rock” and his “fortress”. God upheld David from his birth and David gladly praised God. As an old man, David found even greater reason to worship God despite oppression by his enemies. “But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more. My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness And Your salvation all the day, For I do not know their limits” (Ps 71:14, 15 NKJV). Compelled to…

Signs and Wonders Miracles played a significant role in the expression of God’s will. The purpose was specifically to confirm the truthfulness of the message. Moses was concerned that the children of Israel would not believe that God had sent him to deliver them from the clutches of Pharaoh. God instructed Moses to throw down the rod in his hand. It became a serpent which terrified Moses. God instructed him to pick it up by the tail. When Moses did…

Sons of Encouragement Few things are accomplished in life without help. The larger and more complex the task, the larger the team required. A project manager assembles workers with the skills required, sets budgets and schedules and assigns supervisors, inspectors and record keepers. Expeditors prod vendors and contractors who fall behind. Each successive task is choreographed then executed until the whole project is complete. Even when we undertake projects alone, the example, teaching and influence of others dictates how we…

Biblical Friendship Consider our relationship with God. “… Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God” (Ja 4:4 NKJV). “You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I…

Till There Was No Remedy Zedekiah, a young and arrogant king of Judah, chose to do evil. He would not humble himself to hear God’s direction as provided by the prophet Jeremiah. He further rebelled against Nebuchadnezzar under whom the nation was captive. The leaders of the people, including the priests followed Zedekiah headlong into depravity. “And the LORD God of their fathers sent warnings to them by His messengers, rising up early and sending them, because He had compassion…

“I’m a Card Sender” Frequently we find limitations to what we can accomplish despite our desire to be of greater service. The disciples disappointed Jesus in His hour of great need. He returned from fervent prayer to find them sleeping. Jesus observed, ”The spirit indeed is willing but the flesh is weak”(Mk 14:38 NKJV). Many of us are discovering the effects of aging and the limitations that accompany this inevitable process. Others must invest their entire strength into a battle…

Are We Too Legalistic? Christians are often accused of being “too legalistic.” Legalistic means “adhering excessively to law or formula.” Is there any merit to the accusation? To answer a question such as this we need to first understand authority. The concept of authority is defined by the very existence of and nature of God. Recall Pharaoh’s bold statement, “Who is the Lord that I should obey His voice to let Israel go?” (Ex 5:2) A battle of wills followed.…
