In Bondage to Busyness

8/20/2018
More
Do you ever get the feeling that if you could just get everything done, cross everything off of your “to do” list, return every phone call, make every meeting, and get everything done at home, that God would be very pleased with you? Would you, then, expect Him to sit back and say, “Good job!” much like you do when your son brings home a report card with straight A’s on it?

Praying With Confidence

8/17/2018
More
That God answers prayer is seldom challenged—at least by those who believe the Bible. But the manner by which God answers never falls into neat categories or boxes. I’m thinking of the story which circulated on the internet about a poor woman who was desperately in need of food. Her neighbor, an affirmed atheist, knowing of her prayers decided that it would be great sport to buy a basket of food, put it on her porch, then ring the doorbell and hide. And this he did. But as soon as the poor...

The Fall of Hope

8/16/2018
More
The Greek Philosopher, Thales, is credited with saying, “The most universal thing is hope, for hope stays with those who have nothing else.” The old philosopher made his point in that there are times when hope is the only thing that remains when everything else is gone. But for vast segments of the world’s population‑‑especially those who have nothing left but hope‑‑even hope seems to be dying.

Facing Consequences

8/15/2018
More
Years ago, there was a radio program called “Truth or Consequence!” What I most remember is that dishonesty always resulted in certain consequences. On today’s edition of guidelines, I’d like to share three words or concepts with you which provide guidelines for living. Those three words are choices, conditions, and consequences. Put another way, your choices in life produce the eventual conditions of your life, which, inevitably result in certain consequences which you may bitterly dislike...

God and Your Stress

8/14/2018
More
I never cease to be amazed at the vast amounts of money spent on research which at times only certifies the obvious. Don’t misunderstand me. Undoubtedly, there is value in proving scientifically what almost everybody already suspects.

Dialogue with God

8/13/2018
More
David says that as a boy he noticed that when his mother prayed, she never said, “Amen” at the end of her prayers. When he went to church and the pastor prayed, he always finished with a flourish and a hearty, “Amen.” That, of course, was the sign that the prayer was ended and it was time to head for the door or whatever. When others prayed they always signed off with an “Amen,” as a kind of spiritual radio station break signaling the conclusion of the whole matter. But not his mother, and...

Something for Nothing

8/10/2018
More
Have you found any real bargains lately? Found any good buys? A trait of human nature makes us all want to get something for a good price. Haven’t you ever come home from a big sale with items you saved so much on, but really did not need? That dress that really did not fit, or that shirt with a collar an inch too big. Nearly everybody, when he or she is honest, will have to admit that he has something he does not need, or even did not really want, something that did not fit, but bought it...

Igniting Your Potential

8/9/2018
More
Sometimes genius is slow coming to the surface. Think your youngster is a slow learner? It’s possible he’s just not interested in the trivial. The fact is that many of our most famous people showed no indications of being outstanding when they were young. To the contrary, many of them, like Thomas Edison, were actually considered slightly slower than their contemporaries. Two of the world’s best loved humorists, Will Rogers and Mark Twain, showed little interest either in school or in humor...

If Someone Would Only Listen

8/8/2018
More
Richard Senac stumbled across the great need people have for someone to listen to them. No, he isn’t a counselor. He was a hospital nurse recruiter who found that getting people up in the morning was no small task, so he started a business called Roosters, named after the barnyard creature that crows about the time the sun rises. Roosters was a telephone calling service that would awaken you in the morning with a variety of several hundred different sounds, from a 21‑gun salute to...

The Wounds of a Friend

8/7/2018
More
He was once a trusted friend, but something happened. His friendship became treachery, and the man who had been a companion, a family friend, and confidant became an enemy. Have you ever had that happen? Painful, isn’t it? The person that you thought would have gone to the wall with you slowly begins to drift away. Your phone doesn’t ring. It’s a one-way friendship. When you call or drop by, you get the connection but it’s cold, routine, and your friend gives you the impression that he’s...

Four Keys to Dealing with Conflict

8/6/2018
More
The man who sat in the office of psychologist Ed Fish was middle‑aged and quite successful. He began talking about his daughter’s forthcoming marriage, but instead of looking forward to it, he dreaded it. Why? Because he did not like the man she was marrying? Not at all! He liked him. “I would really like to have somebody from the family at the wedding,” he wistfully remarked.

Human Clones: Why Not?

The world’s first three-parent child has been born. A Jordanian couple used a new technique that combines the DNA of three people to create a baby boy. The wife’s genes carry a rare genetic mutation so the nucleus of her egg was removed and replaced with that of an egg donor. An American medical team performed the procedure in Mexico.

God in Our Lives

Is there a rather universal conspiracy to keep God from public life? Is there a marked contrast between what is actually going on in the hearts and lives of people and what is reported by the media and the secular press?

Ingredients of a Genuine Revival

8/1/2018
More
Some call it revival. Others call it a spiritual renewal, but no matter what you call it, what the Church needs today is a great move of God’s Spirit as He breaks the fallow ground of our hearts and brings conviction and cleansing in the body of Christ which results in His power being manifest in our lives.

Prayer - the Key to Revival

7/31/2018
More
The Miriam-Webster Dictionary attempts to define the word “revival” as “a period of renewed religious interest, an often highly emotional evangelistic meeting or series of meetings.” It describes the popular understanding of the word–canvas tent, flamboyant evangelist who works the crowd for the offering and an orchestrated attempt to touch the emotions of people.

How Spiritual Awakening Happens

Pastor Thorleif Holm-Glad was walking through the empty sanctuary of Bethlehem Church in Oslo, Norway when the old caretaker of the church stopped him and soberly announced, “See these empty seats? This year there will be revival in this church!” The pastor was startled to say the least. Yes, he knew the church had empty seats and plenty of them. No, not during the week when people were working but during services when the empty seats should have been filled. He also knew the caretaker...

Will Christ Literally Return?

7/27/2018

In the dome of the U.S. Capitol building is an inscription which reads, “One far‑off event towards which all creation moves.” A visitor, seeing the inscription, turned to a guide and asked, “What does that mean?” Hesitating for a moment the guide replied, “I think it refers to the second coming of Jesus Christ.”

Love More Powerful Than Bullets

The Chinese Communist Leader, Mao Tse Tung, who died in 1976, began his Selected Works by asking two important questions: “Who are our enemies?” and “Who are our friends?” Mao was concerned not just with political entities that had to be faced, such as the United States and Russia. He was even more interested in ideologies that represented power.

Who Are You Trusting?

7/25/2018

It is called Syria today, but in ancient days it was known as Assyria. Historians often referred to the Assyrians as the Romans of ancient Asia. Their religion wasn’t much different from that of the Babylonians whom they had displaced as the greatest power in the world. They believed in many gods who supposedly directed human destiny and controlled the earth, water, storms and fire. In their temples, they worshipped Nabu, the god of learning; Ishtar, the goddess of love and sex; and...

The Strength of Your Enemy

7/24/2018

If ever a man had reason to feel that God had let him down, that man was Hezekiah. “Hezekiah who?” you may be saying. Hezekiah, the king of Judah who ascended the throne of David about 726 B.C. If you’re a bit rusty on Old Testament history, I’ll brief you. Having replaced his father Ahaz, who had been a careless ruler, Hezekiah got his act together. He began a great reformation. He broke down the idols Ahaz had set up. He re‑opened the temple, and restored the service of God. He even...
