What Do You “See”?

What do you “see” in your future? What’s your “vision”? In 1872 Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, yet one hundred years later African- Americans were still victims of segregation. During a speech at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963, Dr Martin Luther King Jr. expressed his vision in these now famous words: “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have dream that one day even the...

He Did it for You

The Roman soldiers may have nailed Jesus to the cross, but what held Him there? The Bible gives us the answer: “For God mad Christ, who never sinned to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” The reason Jesus didn’t call an army of angels to save Him, as He could have, was because He’s rather give up His life than give up on you. We struggle to comprehend such a love because we’ve nothing to measure it by or compare it to. Nobody had ever loved us like Jesus, and nobody ever...

The idea was to open their eggs on Easter Sunday and discuss what they had found. When the children gathered they had collected all sorts of things like flowers, butterflies, and rocks. But when the teacher opened...

Working Together in Unity

None of us can do individually, what all of us can do collectively. Paul write, “All of you together are Christ’s body (the church), and each of you is a part of it.” But His body had been known to misbehave. The brain discounts the heart. (Academics discount worshippers.) The hands criticize the knees. (People of action criticize people of prayer.) The eyes refuse to partner with the feet. (Visionary thinkers won’t work with steady laborers.) So Paul writes, “ The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.” The head...

Don’t Be Afraid, Put God First

When famine hit Israel, God said to the prophet Elijah, “Go to Zarephath…I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.” Observe three things in this story: (1) When the need arises, your provision will be in place. That’s how God works, so ask Him to tell you where to go and what to do. And when he does, get moving! (2) The people God uses will surprise you. Sometimes they’re people you would tend to overlook. This penniless widow had “only a handful of flour…and a little oil” (1 Ki 17:12). That’s no problem...
