Ordinary and Encouraged

It was an interesting title for a conference, especially when most of the conferences these days are related to mega-churches.  This one was named the “Ordinary Pastor’s Conference” and sponsored by my home church, Wedgwood Baptist Church in Fort Worth, TX.  The stated purpose was, “to encourage, instruct and bless the ordinary, average, vanilla flavored, mega-nuthin pastor and his wife.” The instruction was given early in the day that the one thing that was illegal was to ask another…

The Next Morning...

"The next morning Jesus awoke long before daybreak and went out alone into the wilderness to pray."  (Mark 1:35)  I've always loved Mark 1:35.  It motivates me to seek God early in the morning.  But I never fully appreciated it until I examined the phrase: "the next morning."

 

So what happened the day before?  The context is the key to this text.  Jesus had a long day the day before. He preached a sermon.  He cast out a demon.  And he healed a multitude of people.  As a…

Prepare to Pray in 2013

Next year’s Seek God for the City came off press last week. That is earlier than ever before. Here’s why: The WayMakers team thought it would be important to have it in the hands of leaders before the election in order to encourage God’s people to be ready to pray together next year with solid biblical…

God's Delights

Psalm 36:8

Introduction: In Psalm 36 David gives equal time to good and bad people.  In verses 1-4 and 11, 12 He tells us about those who do evil and what they face.  In verses 5-10 He gives us an incredible list of God’s magnificent love for His own.  Today the focus is on the second half of verse 8: “And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.”  NASB

When I first read this, my mind wandered to the wicked witch in the Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe. …

Restoring the Church's 'Upper Room'

A friend recently told me a story about renovations being done to the upstairs of an elderly woman’s house. The reconstruction project had proven more costly than expected, resulting in considerable friction among her children, who presumably will inherit the house and their mother’s remaining assets someday.

 

This was a casual conversation about a very real situation. But it contained significant prophetic lessons for the state of the church in America.

 

As the…

The next 33 Years

Today was my church's 33rd anniversary celebration, and I think it was a sign of God’s pleasure over us and his joy that 33 people were baptized on Saturday and Sunday between the three services. During the 9:15 service, a few prayer warriors met in the our Lighthouse prayer chapel and interceded through the early morning service, and for the next 33 years. We prayed for our church’s…

Am I Praying for my Agenda or His?

As a Christ-follower, I have a laundry list of things, important things on my prayer list. Children, finances, job issues, friends going through tough times – I can go on. God I need this. God, I want you do that. I don't know about you, but when I pray this way, focusing on my laundry list, my prayers…
