    Posted on August 20, 2018

    There could be a variety of reasons behind a person missing the mark, seeming to sabotage what they are doing or the direction they are going. Sometimes a person is trying to live up to expectations to which they have not really been called. Others advanced way beyond their level of faith and the future […]

    Have you ever had one of those nights when you thought you were tired but couldn’t get to sleep because your mind was really active?

    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Where are those who are like Barnabas?”

    Posted on July 30, 2018

    As I sat at lunch with a friend the other day, he made and interesting observation and said, “where are the Barnabases today?” The thought of that really triggered my mind to think of how nice it would be to have someone come along beside me in ministry who was like Barnabas. Not just me, […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Worship 101”

    Posted on July 23, 2018

    Corporate worship seems to be downplayed in our current society.

It seems corporate worship has been devalued to the place where singing seems […]

    Posted on July 16, 2018

    When it comes to confessing your sin to God, it’s best to keep the list short; otherwise you bring great sorrow on yourself as you give God the cold shoulder. Just ask David how keeping silent about sin worked out in his life.

    Posted on July 9, 2018

    We’ve had the privilege over the past year of getting to know a young professional baseball player. Being drafted right out of high school and sent to our town to train, his parents made sure he was established with a local church. It’s been great for the church and for my wife and me to […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Cowardly Communication”

    Posted on July 2, 2018

    If you ride a bicycle, you’ve no doubt experienced the guy in the car who passes while yelling obscenities and other verbiage to let you know how he feels about your riding on his road and causing him to slow down. If you get on Facebook, you can’t help but notice how many people are […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “An Observation Of Faithfulness”

    Posted on June 25, 2018

    1 Peter 4:10 (ESV) — 10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:

    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Divine Gentleness”

    Posted on June 18, 2018

    When you think of the Sovereign God who created the heavens and the earth and Who rules all things by His power and for His glory, you may not be prone to think of His gentleness. His gentle side, however, points to a source of great blessing for us and a mark to which He […]
