There is no us vs. them…..it’s just US!

In light of all the recent shootings that have taken place in Minnesota, Louisiana, and Dallas, Texas, our country is in an uproar. And, rightly so.  My heart aches for my country and specifically for all those involved in these situations.  Facebook is full of opposing commentary of these events. Blue Lives Matter! Black Lives

Don’t Let Sin Be Your Master

For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace. (Romans 6:14) This is such a freeing verse. Many Christians today believe that they will never get above sin. They believe that they are still sinners who are just saved by grace. But this is not the truth.

The Final Word Has Not Been Spoken!

We just celebrated the apex of Christian beliefs – the resurrection of Jesus (Easter Sunday).  On Good Friday, Jesus cried out from the cross, “It is finished.”  From his perspective, everything that he came to do was now finished.  He came to be sacrificed for the sins of the world and after unbelievable torture and

But life doesn’t

The Cross of Jesus Changes Everything

The Cross is the centerpiece of human history.  By the death and resurrection of Jesus everything changed in an instant.  Death came by one man in an instant through Adam’s disobedience.  Life was made available to all men in an instant when Jesus cried out, “It is finished.”  There was never more a definite statement

Salvation is like the Wind

Salvation is a very interesting thing.  I have seen people commit their lives to the Lord Jesus and everything about them changes in an instant.  I’ve seen people set free from addictions immediately.  I’ve seen people literally transformed into another person overnight because of Jesus. But I’ve also seen some people commit their lives to

American Christians today have a sin problem.  Many of you are probably thinking, “Duh!!”.  But our sin problem is not that we sin, but rather that we focus too much on our sin.  Jesus has taken care of our sin problem by dying on the cross and being raised from the dead.  He has overcome
