What is Love?

What is Love-Study of 1 Corinthians 13 If you are familiar with the topics expressed by William Shakespeare and the myriad of other writers and actors you may know that there is an overwhelming number of works written on a single topic. Love is a big topic of concern among pre-teens and adults alike. Everyone…

Our Perseverance

1 Corinthians 12:1-3 says this “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the…

What’s The Next Step

Have you ever wondered where your life is going? Like you’re missing something? How about this, your life is on track and your doing everything God asks you to do, but you are still missing something? We all feel like this at times. I know I have.  The thing that seems to be my trouble…

Death–His Pain Our Victory

The song by John Mark McMillan ‘Death in His Grave‘ really says it all. I encourage you to listen to the video at the end of this post. One of my favorite songs growing up was ‘Victory in Jesus‘. We have victory not on our own merit or of our own will; we have victory because of…

More Reasons To Sing

I was listening to the radio a few days ago and this song seemed to leap out of the speakers at me. It’s called 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman. The message behind it is so powerful.  The principle is amazing to think about how unending and how great the love of the Lord is. Psalm…

Who Is God in Relation to Me?

Bigger Than Any Mountain Who is God anyway? That is the topic that Gordon Jensen wrote about in his great song Bigger than Any Mountain. This song is a great reminder of who God is in relationship to us. I remember growing up in church; the children (me included) would sing this song for the…

Music Theology-Introduction

I have heard an interesting comment from Paul Baloche in an interview by Integrity Music. Baloche mentioned, “We may memorize 10 sermons in the course of our life, but we know hundreds of songs; so, for good or bad we get a lot of our theology from the songs that we sing.” I thought that…

And The “Rest” Was History

We all have to sleep, don’t we? Sleep is an important cycle to keep us going. I read an interesting article by Tel Asiado called The Need to Re-Energize: Why it is important to Rest, Sleep, and Relax. He had an interesting quote that reads, “To maintain a balanced physical, mental, emotional and spiritual best,…
