People who are opposed to the gospel are not opposed to ice cream.

We are not out to make smarter sinners; we are out to make disciples.

A group of 10 that doubles every 18 months will reach 1000 in 10 years.

Discussion-based Lessons

Discussion-based lessons have groups talking and changing. We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. "Instead SPEAKING the truth (not just hearing the truth) we will grow." Ephesians 4.15 https://www.youtube.com/embed/lduldVUA8-4

How to live when times are good

What’s King Asa doing? No one’s attacking him. Everything’s peaceful, and this dude is building fortresses all over Judah. Well, there was trouble everywhere else. “All the inhabitants of the lands were in great turmoil. One nation was being crushed by another” (2...

Life after a disastrous, embarrassing sin

No doubt when David was trying to cover his sin, he was “missing God.” Keep in mind that David is the same man who wrote most of the Psalms, the man who told us that he longed for God like a deer longs for water. He wanted the joy he once had to be restored. So when...

The Art of Forgiveness

But how? We’ve spent the first half of this book considering some of the major whys of forgiveness. But like everything else in the Christian life, forgiving others is much more than what-fors and how-comes. Ours is an active faith. It is made alive and appealing only...

Practice hospitality

When the Lord opened Lydia’s heart to respond to Paul’s message, she extended hospitality and persuaded Paul and Silas to stay at her house. Because she was a Gentile, this visit might have been quite an act: of faith on Paul and Silas’s part. Hospitality like Lydia’s...

Forgiving for Jesus’ Sake

For many years, I was a part of a team that conducts revival meetings in local churches across the United States.1 I remember one particular church where the Spirit of God moved in an unusual way, bringing many church members to brokenness and repentance. During the...

Falling in Love with Jesus

If you have ever been around someone who has recently fallen in love, you know that every other word out of the person’s mouth seems to be about the new relationship. With starry-eyed enthusiasm, the person describes every detail, sometimes again and again! That’s a...

The empirical benefits of attending church

Learning Discipleship from Good King Asa

“But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” 2 CHRONICLES 15:7–8 NIV When Asa heard these words and the prophecy of Azariah son of Oded the prophet, he took courage. He removed the detestable idols from the whole land of Judah and...

The myth of the dying church

Do you know what one of the biggest lies about the church is today? It’s actually been going around for a number of years now. You may have even innocently passed along this false information to others. After all, you’ve received your information from reliable...

The Promise of Forgiveness

I know just enough about computers, as they say, to be dangerous. But one thing I’ve learned the hard way is the meaning of that little button that’s spelled D-E-L. That’s right. The delete key. (I’m guessing you know about that one yourself.) Like you, I can think of...

Is every disciple an evangelist?

Evangelism is so important for church growth that one can understand why many Christian circles tend to overemphasize it. Overemphasize? Before I answer this, I need to stress that I personally believe in evangelism so much so that I have dedicated my life to see that...

How can I be confident in a crisis?

The Bible teaches us that there are three kinds of storms in life: storms that we bring on ourselves (like Samson and his self-induced troubles), storms that God causes (like the one that Jesus stilled on Lake Galilee), and storms that other people cause (as when Paul...

The Life of David as Reflected in the Psalms

So as I crave more of God, I want to have a meaningful dialogue with my heavenly Father, to enjoy more intimacy with Him than I’ve ever had before. And the only way I can have this kind of relationship is to keep my mouth shut at times, which is much harder than it...

Walking Wounded

A friend told me as I was working on this book, “I don’t really relate to this subject—I just don’t struggle with bitterness or unforgiveness.” While that may be true for a few, I’ve come to believe that, whether they realize it or not, unforgiveness is, in fact, a...

MOBILIZING THE LAITY TO MINISTRY

A careful look at the New Testament reveals the nature of the church as essentially a lay movement. The Apostle Paul indicates that it was Jesus Christ “who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to...
