Identity, Authority & Motives (part 3)

We all do what we do for a reason.  We may not know what that reason is but there is always a reason why.  Dr. Phil McGraw has ten life laws that he teaches. One of those laws is People Do What Works.  His statement is that people do what they do because there is

Identity, Authority & Motives (part 2)

 The word authority gets thrown around a lot among Christian circles, especially in the Charismatic/Apostolic-Prophetic movement.  During the last 20 years I have heard the word authority used so many times.  Some in a right context, but unfortunately many times it has been used in a wrong way.  I’ve seen authority abused and misused.  I’ve

Identity, Authority & Motives (part 1)

Most people in life have struggled with their personal identity at some time or another.  The teens years often are very hard on adolescents as they try to figure out “who they are”.  Many don’t find out until much later in life.  How many men have went through mid-life crises’ because they hadn’t truly “found

Jesus, a Pharisee and a Sinner

In Luke 7:36-50, we find a very interesting story.  It’s where a woman, whom Luke addresses as a sinner, anoints Jesus’ feet with ointment and washes his feet with her hair.  All this happens while Jesus is eating at the home of a Pharisee.  There’s some interesting things to note here.  The first of them

Struggling with God’s Love

The love of God is best seen and learned through the life of Jesus.  Jesus came to reveal and explain the Father to us.  I love what Bruxy Cavey said, “The life of Jesus is like God pausing from teaching us lessons & saying ‘Here’s what I mean – watch this.’”  God is just like

Do We Live Like God is Love?

I John 4:7-10  “7Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent
