Last week I ask the question, why were you born. This week we are going to pull back the curtain and see how God orchestrates his plans behind the scene. We will examine how he brings everyone together in what becomes a perfectly cast play

As you start to discover the purpose for which you were born, it may scene like it will be impossible for you to accomplish what God has called you to do.

Why Were You Born?

That probably seems like a pretty strange question for me to be asking you. Why were

you born? Have you ever wondered? Do you ever think about it at all?

Greatness Within

New England is the hardest place to plant a church. New England is spiritually dead. New Englanders are resistant to the Word of God. Don’t waste your time.

These are the things well meaning, informed friends told me and my wife before we embarked on a 12 month missions trip to Rhode Island.

 In the Book of Luke, written by a guy name named Luke, hence, The Book of Luke, Luke recounts the story of Zacchaeus the tax collector. It’s a fairly short story so I’m going to share it here with you and then we will dissect a few key truths we can take away from it.

Wash your hands

Okay, for the record, yeah I’m a big advocate of washing your hands. If you are a guest in my house and you use the bathroom and don’t wash your hands, YUCK!, don’t think, and I mean even for a millisecond, about opening my refrigerator and digging through my lunch meat drawer to make a sandwich. You feel me?

Well we’ve made it through another year together in our writer/reader relationship and I hope that my weekly columns have blessed you and had a positive impact in your life.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed reading my columns as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. 2016 is in the history books, may we embrace 2017, as the year we pray things get better. I thought and prayed about what message I should give you to kick off the new year and God delivered. He has a way of doing that.

Philippians 3:13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead...

Was last year a good year for you? Maybe it was, but maybe it wasn’t. Maybe last year was a year filled with poor choices or unfortunate circumstances.

Love means different things to different people. When I was a teenager love was Susan but tomorrow it was Allison or Melissa.

To some, I love you means I love what I can get out of you. To others, it means I love you as long as you love me.

To some, it means I love you until you wrong me. To others, it means I love you until something better comes along.

Today, I want to talk about TRUE LOVE, and what that looks like.

John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Did you know you can be right and still be wrong? That sounds kind of backwards, but let me explain.

As I write these words, we are marching headlong into the holiday season, which will be upon us all too quickly. With so many things that need to be done, days will seem chaotic and hectic.

Many will feel pressured just to keep up. We will get so caught up in mailing Christmas cards, gift shopping, meal preparations and clean up. Some of us will utter, “I just can’t wait until it’s all over.”

This week we are gonna park our thought train on the topic of adversity and why God allows stuff that we don’t like or want, to happen in our lives.

Last week I asked if you were a water walker and clued you in on the fact that if you want to walk on water, you have to get out of the boat. Obviously ‘getting out of your boat’ is just a metaphor for getting out of your comfort zone.

   

Are you a water walker?

Sounds like a crazy question I know, but I’m asking you this question because God is calling you to be a water walker.

Listen or Not

As I sit here in the comfort of my living room listening to Christmas music, (don’t you judge me), I am calm and at peace with the mission God has called me too.

This was not so just a few days ago. I was having a crisis, a mission meltdown if you will. To help you better understand what I was going through, I need to give a little back story.

Matthew 19:19 ...'honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.

This week I spoke with a good friend of mine. Her heart was broken at the behavior of her daughter, who is a young teen. Hurtful words. Destructive actions. Angry letters and emails.

After you’ve been driving for a number of years, you will no doubt be faced with the dreaded Check Engine Light.

If you are like most people, you will do nothing about it. I speak from personal experience. I usually ignore it. I’m like, “Why do I need to check the engine? I know it’s there, right under that hood thingy.Besides, it’s running so it has to be there right?”

See I figure if it’s running, how bad can it be, you know?I don’t have time to deal with it right now. I will worry about it later.

Before you freak out and google WebMD, let me explain what DBS is. But first I will tell you that if you have DBS, no doctor on the planet can cure you.

So what is DBS? Is it fatal? How long do you have left to live?
