Do I Consecrate or Condemn My Household?

The Scriptures emphasize the household as an altar from which the fire of pure worship should always burn. The Bible declares that God “will pour out His fury upon the families that do not call upon his name.”(Jeremiah 10:24).  Abraham was particularly commended for his faithfulness, God declaring, “for I know him, that he will […]

Understanding

Over the past week or so I have been traveling on behalf of a school for the Deaf for which I advocate in Kenya (www.kenyadevfund.org – please check it out).  I have been in Florida where I have made some fantastic new friends and renewed some old ones. I’ve been “couch surfing” which is a […]

As For Me and My House

I wrestle with these words, but I am compelled to speak. If a person in your community were to take a small animal, let’s say a kitten and with a pair of pliers tear this sweet little furry creature limb from limb, while it is still alive.  What do you suppose would be the reaction […]

Will we again reverence His Word?

Recently, as I was reading in the book of Nehemiah I was struck by a powerful moment in the Scriptural record- I hardly know what words to use to describe it. However, I have a deep rooted conviction that in the brief passage I read is the key to an earth shattering and a church […]

Who Will Be a Father?

Behold the stereotypical modern American father — flabby body planted firmly in the LazyBoy, nose buried in the newspaper; the sum total of his communication with his family consisting of an occasional grunt without not so much as a glance away from the sports page, showing signs of life only during the Super Bowl and […]

A Tent of Meeting

I have been meditating on the “tent of meeting” from Exodus 33:7 in preparation for Sunday’s teaching from the Word of God. Moses would set up a tent away from the camp, and called it the “tent of meeting” and all who sought the Lord would go out to the “tent of meeting.” There is […]

Fixed Point

A few nights ago everyone was abuzz with the news of impending meteor showers; supposedly some of the most spectacular views of the year were to be seen — if you were fortunate enough to have no cloud cover and hardy enough to stay up until the wee hours of the morning.  Indeed, having seen […]

Sandy Hook

Ravi Zacharias has said it best for me: “God is evicted from our culture, then blamed for our carnage.” So many people are mad at God because the massacre in Connecticut. God’s voice is not allowed in government, public forum, no longer even in our holidays….we don’t want his opinion about sexuality, abortion, marriage. We […]

Adam

In Genesis 3 we find the record of the fall of man. It is my purpose to make observations in this post – not to develop a deep theological thread. However, as I have meditated on these thoughts today some important issues have arisen in my mind, regarding Adam; both of them. The serpent, more […]

Seeing God

There is a view of God that we have lost in the church in our generation: the high, exalted, lofty, exclusive, unparalleled, unprecedented character of God. Preferring the comfort of His nearness, we have lost the reality of God’s transcendent holiness. Our generation struggles and wallows in cheap grace and shallow sanctification because we have […]
