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

When God Doesn’t Make Sense

When God Doesn’t Make Sense

When I was a boy, I heard a mystery program on radio that captured my imagination. It told the story of a man who was condemned to solitary confinement in a pitch-black cell. The only thing he had to occupy his mind was a marble, which he threw repeatedly against the...

God’s megaphone

God’s megaphone

When God wants to thrill a man

My favorite poem: When God wants to drill a man, And thrill a man, And skill a man, When God wants to mold a man To play the noblest part; When He yearns with all His heart. To create so great and bold a man That all the world shall be amazed, Watch His methods, watch...

Jesus Continued…

Jesus Continued…

Learning to Pray from Paul

Learning to Pray from Paul

One of the most helpful things you can do to strengthen your prayer life is to study the prayers of the apostle Paul as recorded in the New Testament. Most of Paul’s letters begin with a thanksgiving and prayer for “the saints” (believers) to whom he writes. Paul does...

Success in 2020

The ant doesn’t need anyone looking over its thorax telling it to get to work. The ant is the ultimate example of what we today call a “self-starter.” Whether it’s on Twitter, through an e-mail, or when I’m speaking at a live event, about once a week someone asks me,...

God’s Answer to Your Anxiety

God’s Answer to Your Anxiety

Images of soldiers in battle are common in several of Paul’s epistles. That’s not too surprising, considering he and his fellow believers were all under rule by representatives of the Roman Empire, which had conquered its territories with a mighty army. Thus we’re not...

What kind of prayer does God answer?

What kind of prayer does God answer?

The title of this chapter is a back-door acknowledgment that there are some prayers that God will not answer. I repeat: God does not answer every prayer. (See Jeremiah 7:16; Psalm 66:18; 1 Peter 3:7.) In fact, God will not listen to some prayers; much less answer...
