The Prize

| September 22, 2015

“Pray for me? No, God doesn’t care about us.” I looked past the middle-aged Ugandan man, to the small hut in which he lived with his family. And then at the other huts all grouped together, just a few feet apart. Hundreds of them. Thousands, actually. An “Internally Displaced Persons” camp in northern Uganda. For […]

The Gospel

| August 26, 2014

We are called to know, believe, live, and proclaim the gospel. The gospel is God’s power at work, saving everyone who believes it (Rom 1:16). But we often truly do not remember what it is, or believe that it is really true. The gospel is all about Jesus (Rom 1:3). I wonder if a total […]

It Doesn’t Work! (for me) — Part 2

| August 15, 2012

Daily prayer. Consistent, intentional time with Jesus. Reading the Bible. Ok, so I do need it. And maybe I’m ready to think about trying this whole thing… again. It hasn’t worked before. But maybe there’s hope. I’m fairly skeptical, but maybe. So… how do I do it? I’m going to give a few simple and […]

It Doesn’t Work! (for me)

| August 6, 2012

Yeah, sure. I know. We need to pray and read the Bible every day. It’s important for us. It makes the day go better. We can’t get along without it. We have more peace. More joy. More love. More fruit. I know that’s all true. In general. But honestly, I tried it, and it doesn’t […]

Longing

| July 21, 2012

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God,  for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? — Psalm 42:1-2 I long for God.  Not for an experience.  Not for a spiritual high.  But to know Him.  To walk […]

With Jesus

| February 13, 2012

Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they came to him.  He appointed twelve that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons.  –Mark 3:13-15 I’ve developed kind of a bad habit lately.  It’s […]

When God invests His own passion in you, the desire to see His name glorified among all people, you must build and develop what God has given you.  Four things will help: 1. […]

Apostolic Passion

| August 18, 2011

This article is re-posted from Floyd McClung.  In order to read more from him, go to http://floydandsally.com. What is Apostolic Passion? The term “passion” is used to describe everything from romance to hunger pangs. I don’t know what it means to you, but for me passion means whatever a person is willing to suffer for. […]

Desire

| August 11, 2011

So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. […]
