Thanksgiving

It’s customary for everyone who blogs, or even communicates for that matter, to talk about Thanksgiving this week, and particularly that we should be thankful all year long, and I agree! I just don’t think there could be too much communication about being thankful. The problem with any type of communication like this is that…

His Benefits

As promised from Sunday’s service, I want to give you the rest of the notes from the second message I did entitled, “His Benefits”. Before I do, here’s a review of the part I did cover: Ps. 103:2-5 God’s benefits, or advantages, are given to us, not so much out of generosity as out of…

Logos and Rhema

It is important that believers understand the power in the Word Of God in order to walk in the fulness of what God has for them. Although I have been teaching on the “Logos” and “Rhema” for a number of years, I came across this article by Keith Trump on Tony Cooke’s website (www.tonycooke.org) and…

No More Ministry Rock Stars

There seem to be a lot of articles written recently calling for an end to the "Rock Star" status of Christian ministers, and I agree!  My first exposure to the ministry was in a culture where ministers had to be protected by armorbearers in case people wanted to get too close.  While ministry assistants are…

Relationships

Connie is my guest blogger today.  She sent this to me from her journal the other day, and I thought it to be a "Word From God" for all of us! Galatians 1:10For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not…
