Just as David was chosen for his generation God has positioned us, as grandparents for our generation with our personality and gifts for our families. We read in Acts 16:36 “ David served God’s purpose in his generation.”
According to Deuteronomy 4:9, God’s purpose for us, as grandparents is to teach God’s commands to our children and our…Continue

In Luke 20:1-8 the scribes and Pharisees challenged the authority of Jesus who the day before had cleansed the temple. Incidentally, they also questioned his authority to cast out demons and heal the sick. His question of what they thought was the authority of John the Baptist silenced the rulers. This passage brings us face to face with the question of all authority. And it highlights the genuine authority of Jesus that obviously did not need to be defended.
This story shows…Continue

Prayer as described and modeled in the Bible is a two-way conversation between the believer and God, guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit, through Jesus Christ Our Mediator. Praying without ceasing practices the presence of God as we go through our days and nights aware of and in communion with Him. Extraordinary…

HEALING IN THE CHURCH
What part should healing play in the church? I believe the Bible is clear on this matter. James 5:14,15 gives specific advice.
"Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well, the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven."
I don't want to deal here with how we are to…Continue

Studies show that only 1 in 5 Americans reads their Bible on a regular basis, even though 88% own a Bible.* If you're like most people, you want to connect with God - and even have what you need to do so - but life gets in the way. Distractions, necessities, and even emergencies pull you away from your scheduled time with God, and…Continue

At the local vigil for the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando Sunday, Rev. RL Gundy conceded that finding forgiveness in the face of such hatred was challenging. "How do I look you in the face and say, 'Love your enemy?'” he wondered.
I know where RL is coming from....There is much to say, there are so many…Continue

I seldom hesitate to ask my readers to pray for me. I need prayer in so many areas of my life. I need prayer for spiritual strength. I need you to pray for moral purity. I need prayer for my attitudes and thinking. I need you to pray for my prayer life. I seldom preach now, although I still could and would preach if God gave me opportunities. Prayer is my most important ministry. And in deed I need you to pray for my writing.
I have always worked at my writing. The first thing…Continue

“You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives…” (James 4:3 NASB)
We don't have the answer because we ask amiss, with the wrong motives. We are not asking God for the revival He truly wants to give us. We are not preparing for the revival He truly wants to give us. Maybe we don't even have a glimpse of the revival that He wants to give us. We must cease asking amiss and begin to ask according to His heart, His desires, and His plans.
What does real…Continue

A Praying Life is the most practical training on prayer possible, yet it is rooted in biblical theology.
I highly recommend it.
