Good News from the Christians

By On October 8, 2019

I’m very concerned. Satan has had his share of successes in bringing down believers. He’ll come at them from any angle. He’s a tempter with no shortage of tricks and temptations to trip-up believers. I’m worried about the Christians in Thessalonica. Their testimony in the community was second to none. Exemplary and a powerful witness for Christ! But they have…

By On September 24, 2019

Having Doubts about God or Your Beliefs?

By On September 10, 2019

I wonder sometimes if I have just swallowed hook, line and sinker the set of beliefs with which I’ve been brought up. The more I’m exposed to larger circles and hear how others think, the more I wonder if what I believe could really be right and the exclusive truth. I’m almost embarrassed over how simply I see the world….

“He’s Worth Saving!”

By On September 8, 2019

Not everyone feels the same way, but Patrick’s mother really believes her son is worth saving. Margaret Terry’s 29-year-old son has only months – maybe weeks left to live. His liver is not responding to the medical treatment for alcoholic hepatitis. He has reached end-stage liver disease. Time is running out. Only a liver transplant can save his life; and,…

Pain for Gain

By On September 3, 2019

Have you ever grumbled to the Lord about things that are happening in your life? Someone else gets the promotion you expected to get. You sprain your ankle, ending your soccer season. The transmission goes in your car. Your favourite piece of technology was stolen. Your house deal falls through. A courtship is called off. Don’t just shrug your shoulders…

Dialoguing the Gospel

By On August 27, 2019

Do you find it easier to have a one-way conversation than a dialogue? Some overt introverts freeze during a free-flowing discussion or an exchange of ideas. They can stand up in a classroom and deliver a prepared presentation – a one-way monologue. But they become very uncomfortable when the monologue turns into a dialogue. The Apostle Paul was equipped to…

Love and Truth – Christian Fellowship

By On August 20, 2019

I just don’t see why you are such a stickler for details. Christianity is about love and if you keep insisting on those things, we’ll lose everyone. The writing is on the wall. People today just are not going to put up with all those technicalities. Before you know it, everyone will be walking out of here. Like, does it…

“Mike, it’s Brad calling about our accountability session coming up on Thursday. Let me know if you are still available. And just to remind you – you agreed to keep a journal for the two weeks listing all your victories and your defeats. Be sure to print-off a copy for me for our discussion.” Sometimes in our Christian experience, we…
