I was just settling into a comfortable spot on the floor in front of the fireplace on a bitterly cold winter night, with pillows perfectly positioned. I was reading a book written by a friend about dealing with disappointment when God seems to "disappear." *…

Elisha was a man of unusual “God moments.” I’m still pondering the floating axhead story—and have absolutely nothing to write about that!
But I am especially struck by the details of two miracles involving Elisha: the widow with the replenishing oil and the Shunammite woman’s son who was raised from the dead. Both of these stories from 2 Kings 4 have a common thread…

I recently finished re-reading a book that may well be my favorite book on prayer: The God Who Hears, by Bingham Hunter. I really appreciate the premise of the book that prayer begins with God, not with us. God is the one who draws us to prayer; we tend to see prayer as us coming to God when actually it's Him drawing us into His presence.
Hunter begins where prayer really should begin - with who God is. He deals with several…Continue
Celebrating 50 years (this year) in ministry I can assure you that misunderstandings, mistrust and betrayals are unavoidable. In fact, as odd as it may sound, they are actually part of the plan. After all, if we're to reign with Him, we must first suffer with Him. It's in our suffering that we are conformed into His image.
For resurrection life to exist, something must die. It's not "if I'm ever betrayed". It's "when I'm betrayed". You see, many people blame the devil, when all…

“Why didn’t God answer my prayer?” That was the question posed by the new Christian, although the question is not unique to new Christians. First of all, there is no such thing as unanswered prayer, in spite of the old hymn text by B.B. McKinney. Sometimes, God says “No” or “Wait” but those are answers. When it seems God is not answering we tend to look for reasons. We blame God –…Continue

Jesus said that we are made clean by the Word. "You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you" (John 15:3). Speaking of the church, He said that He would…Continue
Sometimes you discover a new truth by accident.
That happened to me recently as I was reading through Ephesians. Actually I’ve been reading and re-reading Ephesians for the last few months. When I read David Powlison’s advice
that we should master Ephesians and be mastered by it because “in a
pinch you could do all counseling from…
