Remembering 9.11

Remembering 9.11

As the nation prepares to remember the tragedy of September 11, 2001 -- the day when the worst of the worst of the human race displayed the very soul of sinful humanity -- our hearts are hopefully turned toward Jesus Christ. On that day, ten years ago, we witnessed the depravity of man, fleshed out through cowards under the cloak of a fanatical Islamist group who were devoid of genuine character. You and I, now ten years removed from the pain of that day, must ever be reminded of our need to be in an intimate, personal walk with the...
The Time Has Come

The Time Has Come

The time has come for us to share the Gospel with passion, persistence , and power. It seems to me that our ministry of evangelism must move forward with more intensity than ever before. While it might be safe to say that the church has had some moments of effective evangelism, the current global data reveals that we must do more. Presently nearly 6 out of 7 people in the world are without Christ! This sobering reality causes me to realize that whatever we have been doing is not enough. We must find a way to share the gospel with...
Football Games and Evangelism

Football Games and Evangelism

This past weekend began (for nearly everyone) the college football season. For all the teams it began with eyes on the prize. That prize, the title of champion! Now we know there are several different championships, but every team on the field is aspiring to their particular championship. With that said, how did it go? Well, half the teams are undefeated, and the other half are 0-1 -- they lost, they were defeated, they are deflated, but none of them are destroyed. It was, for all the teams, the first step in the rest of the season. Some of the...
Daddy is a Wonderful word

Daddy is a Wonderful word

Earlier this week I head a local news report detail how the new head coach of our NFL team had taken time from his hectic schedule to toss the softball with his daughter.  Not a big deal you might think, but given the pressure of leading a professional football team out of the seller, it was a time and priority issue.  He made the right choice. This story caused me to reflect on some of my fondest memories of my on daddy.  He had retired from the US Navy and was working for the NC Department of Corrections where tensions...
The Sovereignty of God

The Sovereignty of God

When I have time I tune in to one or more of the "news" channels which inundate the airwaves with their product.  Like most, it does not take long for the news to turn my stomach, so I simply tune to something more refreshing.  The past few weeks have filled the minds of many with thoughts of deep panic and concern.  So many have called me to share their concern over events happening globally.  "What should I take from the events?" is the most often asked question.  While I do not believe any one has the answer to the problem,...
That I may know Him

That I may know Him

Oswald Chambers said, "The aim of a spiritually vigorous saint is “that I may know Him . . .” Do I know Him where I am today? If not, I am failing Him. I am not here for self-realization, but to know Jesus Christ. In Christian work our initiative and motivation are too often simply the result of realizing that there is work to be done and that we must do it. Yet that is never the attitude of a spiritually vigorous saint. His aim is to achieve the realization of Jesus Christ in every set of circumstances." (read devotional)...
