In Ephesians 3:1-13, Paul has profound words from the Lord revealing to him the universal importance of his particular ministry.

I won’t let anyone rob me of my God-sword, God’s word

As I meditate on just how important God's word should be to believers, I'm reminded of the story of Eleazar, one of David's mighty men in 2 Samuel 23:9-10. In the heat of battle with the Philistines, Eleazar wielded his sword skillfully and fought so hard against the enemy's onslaught that when he got weak,… Continue reading I won’t let anyone rob me of my God-sword, God’s word

Defamation from our enemies will bring them shame

Defaming the true saints of God has always been en vogue by the world. Whether that defamation comes in the form of bearing false witness against us, slander, or libel, wherever we turn these days, it is becoming more common and acceptable to knowingly lie and spread lies about God, the Bible, and his people.… Continue reading Defamation from our enemies will bring them shame

Green means “go”

As many of us have witnessed in recent years (and maybe some of us are guilty of it), it's common for people behind the wheel of a vehicle to get distracted by other things like texting or talking on their cellphones, not paying attention to traffic signals. A few times last week, vehicles ahead of… Continue reading Green means “go”

According to journalist Kari Paul's recent MarketWatch article, she explores "Why millennials are ditching religion… Continue reading Neither repented they of their sorceries

It’s okay to have doubts as long as we look to God for validation

John the Baptist was a great man of God who knew he had a great calling and anointing on his life from the Lord. He was also very confident in his ministry and was rather blunt when he preached in the wilderness. When he was asked about whether or not he was Christ and who… Continue reading It’s okay to have doubts as long as we look to God for validation

Faithful ambassadors

When our Heavenly Father draws us to himself to be saved, among the many things that come with that relationship is the fact he employs us as his ambassadors, authorized representatives and/or messengers for his kingdom. It is truly an honor to hold that distinction for the King above all kings. As his representatives, we… Continue reading Faithful ambassadors

It’s frustrating to see the wicked prosper

I'll be honest. It's exasperating to see how often evil people get away with all their wicked schemes, especially when they become prosperous because of it, in the world or church. I've often wondered why God is quick to call my faults to my attention and put up hurdles or walls for me until I… Continue reading It’s frustrating to see the wicked prosper
