  Do you lead a busy life? Going here — going there – having little or no time for added opportunities or responsibilities? Or, are you in a season of life where you’re ready for a new adventure, an opportunity to do things you’ve never done before and go places you’ve never been before? As I write this devotion, I’m sitting on a plane headed to South Asia — a place I’ve been called to, a region I’m honored and… Read more

When you’ve learned something you are excited about — you talk about it. When you discover a better way of doing things — you show others. And when you experience a life change — you can’t wait to share it with others in hopes they will experience a life change too. So, how often are you sharing the life-saving, life-changing gospel of Christ with others? Our primary biblical command in Matthew 28:19 is to go and make disciples of all… Read more

Even under ideal conditions, climbing a mountain like Mount Everest is an act of near madness. Standing on top of the peak is like stopping a passenger jet in mid-flight and climbing out onto the wing. The altitude, the below zero temperatures and most concerning, the lung destroyer- which produces a confusing atmosphere caused by ultra-thin air. In May 1996, it was clear to anyone listening to the Mount Everett radio traffic, that climber Rob Hall had decided to give… Read more

Do you believe you can have a personal relationship with the creator of our world? Do you accept that God wants to talk with you and wants you to talk with Him? Do you wonder — How do I talk to God? How do I know He’s listening? How do I recognize His voice? And why does it always seem there’s someone or something keeping me from talking to Him? Here’s what I’ve learned throughout my spiritual life journey with God — How… Read more

From the moment we surrender our lives to Christ, God views us as clean and pure because He sees the righteousness of Jesus in us (Hebrews 10:10). From that day forward, we embark on a Spiritual Growth Journey, growing in our knowledge and understanding of God and His Word. It’s a process that ultimately leads us to become more like Christ. As we grow spiritually, the Holy Spirit strengthens our ability to resist sin by drawing us closer to our… Read more

Hebrews says that faith is confidence in what we hope for and the assurance about what we do not see. When we face obstacles or unanswered prayers in our lives, we need to depend on God and His love and ability. 1 John 4:17 tells us we can know and rely on the love God has for us! How do we workout our faith? Faith in God is like a muscle – it needs to be exercised. We exercise our… Read more

Do you find it difficult, at times, to stand firm in your faith? Are you tempted to compromise your integrity under pressure from those you love or admire? Or — are you determined to stay true to yourself, firm in your convictions, and faithful to your Savior, even when it means opposing the crowd? Courage is not gained once and never lost. It’s a daily, hourly, and moment-by-moment choice – an intentional decision. It’s something that grows stronger and easier… Read more

Roadblocks are obstructions that restrict us from traveling on roads we need or desire to go. While External (or physical) Roadblocks can be frustrating and inconvenient. The Roadblocks that are especially destructive are the Internal ones that hinder our personal and spiritual growth. ExternalRoadblocks hinder us in our travels, cause us to be re-routed, detoured, or completely blocked from getting to places we need to go. In much the same way, our Internal Roadblocks hinder us, cause us to be detoured, or completely block our progress. These Roadblocks… Read more

It’s not uncommon to endure seasons of “pruning” when following Christ. Pruning is a time of preparation for greater works, greater fruit, and a greater purpose in Christ. Even fruitful branches are in need of pruning. I was in my third “desert wilderness” journey when I asked God if this was another “Job story” He was taking me through- it had all the earmarks of one. Immediately, I heard in my spirit, “This isn’t a Job story, it’s a pruning… Read more

Leadership involves influence and we all influence others in one way or another. Either for better or for worse. Whether with family, friends, co-workers, or acquaintances, it’s vital we carefully consider our sphere of influence and the type of influence we have on them. So, “Are you a leader worth following?” John Maxwell says, “The most important ingredient of leadership is integrity.” Integrity is the quality of being honest, of having strong moral principles. Integrity is an essential ingredient if we’re… Read more
