Credential-Living And Success

Discovering The True Meaning of Life

My wife and I just hung up our accomplishments and credentials up on our wall in our little apartment, and I have to admit for a second, it felt good. There is a certain pride and sense of accomplishment in seeing hard-earned, hard work, sweat, tears, and countless anxiety attacks framed in shiny glass and […]

Never Lose The Wonder!

Deuteronomy 3:23-25

In Deuteronomy 3:23-25, Moses expressed his awe-striking and never-ending wonder of God by expressing that he had just begun to see God’s greatness and His mighty hand. Now, Moses desperately wanted to enter the promise. He wanted to see more! Prior to this, Moses had escaped death in the killing of the first borns of […]

God’s Confidence

Exodus 3:10

Do you ever doubt God’s confidence in doing what He says He will do in your life? Do you ever fail to believe His promises? If you’re human, the answer is probably a shameful and embarrassing: yes. We all do it. We all doubt God at times. Therefore, the great test of our faith in […]

The Ultimate Hope Bringer

Exodus 12:1-3

Jesus was the prophesied Lamb (Exodus 12:1-3). The proverbial sacrifice and ultimate hope bringer of the world. The One no man could ever impersonate or compare. He would be the One who would take away thousands of people’s pain with the thunder of his last breath and the wonderworking event of His resurrection. The sacrifice He […]

A Fire in His Bones!

One Mark You Are Called to Preach

Jeremiah grew up and was called to preach as a prophet for the Lord’s purpose in an incredibly dark and depressing time. He was crafted in the womb, planned out before the Creation of the world had even begun. Before the existence of anything, he was already planned to accomplish God’s goals. This is evident […]

Honesty And Respectability

Jeremiah 20:7

Sometimes when we pray, since we know we are talking to a Holy God, we edit our prayers and we only share the good or we are afraid to really dig deep into the struggles of our hearts and communicate them with God –the dark places. Conversely, other times we do the reverse, all we […]

A Blessing and A Curse

Deuteronomy 11:26

The book of Deuteronomy sets a vivid and unmistakable backdrop and clear picture of obedience to a Holy, powerful and Righteous God, and it clearly shows a physical portrait of what happens when God’s people deliberately disobey a Holy, mighty and Righteous God. It’s an often over-looked display of the reverence we should approach God […]

The Divine And The Improbable

Exposing Exegetical Fallacies in Genesis

In regards to Genesis 1-2 on creation, it is, in some way, unbelievable that God designed mankind, the world, plants and everything else in 6 literal days. In fact, it would be more humanly probable to believe huge pine trees and incredibly complex creatures evolved over time or that trees had to grow progressively from […]

The Hope Found In Dying

To Die Is Gain

One would think spending a life-time preparing for death, and having the knowledge of death, one day, would be tortuous. In some ways, that seems kind of depressing, right? Who wants to think about death, let alone believe death is real? Instead, most people are busy living. We don’t want to think about death or […]

Transferred From Dark To Light

Gaining Full Access To God's Power

2 Timothy 1:10 gives assurance to the believer that God has conquered death and given us life and light through His death and resurrection on the cross saying: “But now has been revealed by the appearing of our Saviour Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” To […]
