No matter what type of temptations you currently face, I hope this is an encouragement to you. Also, be ready as God may put it on your heart… Read more

In Luke 9:23, Jesus tells the crowd to “take up their cross daily.” But the word “daily” is not found in many reputable manuscripts. Also, it is not found in the parallel teachings of Jesus that we see in Matthew 16:24 and Mark 8:34. So do we need to kill our “selves” spiritually every day? This was Cynthia’s question when she wrote in to our ministry. In this short video clip, I address Cynthia’s question and discuss what it means… Read more

Jesus said the opposite of abiding is being “apart” from Him. He also said anyone who does not abide in Him is like a branch that is gathered and burned. Finally, the apostle John writes that anyone who confesses that Jesus is the Son of God abides in Him. It sounds like abiding is a pretty black-and-white thing. Still, so many have turned abiding into a work or a walk. But is abiding a moment by moment decision we must… Read more

Matthew 5 and 6 present us with the Sermon on the Mount and the Lord’s Prayer. Both of these contain teachings that are not merely difficult but impossible: Cut off your hand in your fight against sin? Pluck out your eye too? Get right with others before giving your sacrifice on the altar? You’ll be answerable to the Sanhedrin? In danger of the fires of Hell? Don’t be like the Gentiles? Be perfect like God? Not forgiven unless you forgive… Read more

There’s a lot of talk in the Christian world today about generational curses. And some say that the sins of our ancestors can bring down curses upon us. Then they usually suggest a series of prayers or a process of “reclaiming spiritual territory” to break free from these generational curses. ​Is there any truth to these claims about generational curses? Doesn’t the Bible tell us that there is no condemnation for us who are in Christ and that the evil… Read more

How can I know that I am truly saved? This was Robert’s question when he called into the radio program. And it is a question that all of us should ask at one time or another in our lives. In this short video clip, I discuss the difference between putting confidence in our “story” versus putting confidence in Another. For the many of us who do not have a dramatic story of how we came to faith in Christ, I… Read more

We hear so much on the Christian airwaves about spiritual warfare and struggle with demonic forces, that sometimes it is hard to discern the truth. Some even claim that if we experience any habitual sinning, we are not really saved! Wesley called in to our radio program to ask about ongoing struggles, spiritual warfare, and what a believer can practically do in the midst of “combat.” In this video clip, I address Wesley’s concerns and talk about spiritual battles from… Read more

James 1:14 says “but each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust [desires].” Does this mean that our own desires are all evil? And how would this jive with our new identity in Christ? Don’t we have a new, obedient heart full of godly desires? So what can James 1:14 really mean? This was David’s question when he emailed us. In this short video clip, I address David’s question about our desires. Read more

Katrina. Harvey. Irma. Maria. 9/11. Car bombs. Mass shootings. Whether it’s natural disasters or terrorism or other heinous acts, painful events occur every single day in this world. Is God somehow involved in these? If He is not the cause, then where is He in the midst of them? And what is His heart in these matters? These were Cheryl’s questions, and I address them in this short video clip. I hope this is an encouragement to you today in… Read more
