I Quit – Effective Immediately

As I look at the state of the Church today and what is going on within it; As I look at the way Christians are behaving and living their lives – no different than those who do not claim Jesus as Lord; As I look at the lack of passion and enthusiasm for the things […]

Time to be Honest With Yourself

Another long weekend and the summer is coming to an official close. Children are back at school, university is back in session and the gardens are wrapping up their colours and fading into shades of fall. The sun goes down earlier each evening it seems and the nights are getting colder. The fall season is […]

All Hell Is Breaking Loose

When God calls you to do something for Him – full-time or part-time – and you accept the call on your life and step out; you do so in faith. You will not know all the things that are going to happen to you or through you to others. You are usually clueless about the […]

What Would Happen If

What would happen if every disciple (let’s not talk believers) – every committed follower of and student of Jesus (disciple means follower and someone who learns from the one they are following) … what would happen if every disciple of Jesus around the world became passionate about what Jesus is passionate about and then risked […]

God Plus

As I have been sorting through all the aftermath of the events in Lakeland, Florida I have been noticing a troubling trend in the Church world today. I have called it “God Plus” because it seems that God (especially as expressed and revealed in Jesus) is no longer enough. In my walk with God I […]

So, How Close to God Are You?

As I write this it is 37 above outside (88 F) and I am thankful for air conditioning in my office up here on the second floor with windows facing east, south, and north … otherwise my brain would have fried earlier in the day. However, it did bring to mind the fact that summer […]
