Psalm 92:1-2 It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night, (NKJV) I Dedicate My MorningAlmighty God,As I enter into the start of a new day, I commit everything to your care: my self, my soul, my body, my activities and my friends.I pray that You will watch over me, keep me, guide and direct me, make me Holy and bless me.Cause my heart to follow your ways; Transform me completely into the image of Christ; just like a potter forms the clay; may my words be a well tuned musical instrument singing your praise.Let everyone around me see my living by your […]
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (NKJV)The Lord has chosen to bless our family with an opportunity for faith, trust, witness and spiritual growth. The Bible says to give thanks in ALL things, rejoice in ALL, never stop praying… so my wife and I thank God for however, whoever and whatever He is going to do in our lives during this trying time.On Friday July 11, 2008, our 3 year old daughter, Abby, adopted from Guatemala at six months old, was diagnosed with Leukemia.The previous Wednesday, she acting a little sluggish, and by Thursday it was obvious she was getting a “cold”, probably strep or tonsillitis, a […]
Psalm 51:3 – For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me. (NKJV)One of the evidences of authenticity about the Bible is that it never covers up the ugliness in its characters lives. David is perfect example.He is the only person in the Bible described as a “man after God’s own heart” (Acts 13.22). And yet there are some things about him that would curl your toenails: At times his children despised him – 2 Sam 6.16 His guilt at being a poor parent would cause him problems later – 2 Sam 18.33 He was living it up in luxury while his men were out fighting for the country – 2 Sam 11.1 He lusted after another man’s wife while her husband […]

Question:Do you believe in donating ones organs once they are deceased? If a person does donate their organs, will they have them in heaven? For example, if a person donates their eyes – will they be able to see in heaven? I want a really straightforward answer. I am young and don’t understand a lot of what you write. Answer:Our fleshly bodies, just like this entire earth and universe, will be destroyed and re-created. We will have what the Bible calls a “glorified” body just like Jesus had when he rose from the dead. That is why the questions about organ donations, cremation or people who die violent deaths that destroy the body all fall into the same category. What happens to our flesh here […]
What’s the hardest part of starting down the road to being debt-free? Answer: admitting you haven’t done it right so far, or at best, haven’t done it good enough. Admitting you’ve done a sorry job handling your money or that you’ve fallen for all the consumer marketing gimmicks is not easy. Often, we want to make excuses and justify our debt when most of the time it’s the result of one thing: buying a lifestyle your income cannot afford. You don’t have to be an "addict" or "out of control" to get in debt. It’s a very simple and devious formula: consistently spend more money than you make over a period of time, and as sure as the sun rising in the east, you’ll find […]

Question:Why do we have to give an account to God when we die? Doesn’t He already know everything about us even before we are born? Answer:We can only speculate about the “why” because the Bible simply doesn’t say. Unless you say the “why” is because because “God said so”. “Because I said so” was good enough for my Dad, so I assume its good enough for God too. Since God already knows everything and nothing can improve Him, or make Him more complete, then “giving an account” MUST be for our benefit. It MUST be… it’s the only option.Since we will eternally learn in heaven, I would guess that our accounting will help us worship and bless others even more by the lessons we will […]
(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (NKJV)We continue our Sword Training today looking at what the Bible has to say about itself. To start with, let’s look at some Biblical claims that leave no room for a “neutral” opinion that the Word of God is a “good” book, but not inspired or authoritative. Upon reading the Bible, a person is left with a CLEAR decision:Either the Bible IS the supernaturally, miraculously inspired Word of God;Or it is […]
