The world needs Jesus. Learn how to share your faith confidently with these simple, but powerful tips.

Mark 16:15

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

God has given us the responsibility of reaching the world with the Gospel of Christ. What a commission! What stewardship!

However, the average Christian rarely speaks a word regarding Christ to sinners. This sad fact says more about the state of our nation and the condition of our churches than any poll or questionnaire ever could. If God’s people are not going after sinners, the lost have no hope of salvation!

Are you confident a confident soul winner? You can be. If you were the only hope of salvation for the people in your life, what would be there chances of going to Heaven?

Healthy Stewardship Habits

Healthy Stewardship Habits

So you want to be a good Christian steward?  Learning this simple truth will make it a lot easier!

I have posted several articles about the importance of stewardship in our lives.  Hopefully, by now you agree with the Biblical mandate to live as a good steward.

Desire doesn’t always equal discipline. Jesus taught us that the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

How can we instill the principles of stewardship into our daily lives?

How do we overcome a lifetime of doing things our way and start consistently living like Jesus?

The answer may surprise you.

Habits.

Everyone has them.  Most people don’t give much thought to them, yet they are the secret to stability.  Your habits are making your life better or worse every day.

If you can learn to leverage the power of habit, you will find the consistency necessary to be a faithful disciple of Christ.

THE MINISTRY ROLLER COASTER – How to Stay Faithful During the Ups and Downs

THE MINISTRY ROLLER COASTER – How to Stay Faithful During the Ups and Downs

The ministry is much like a roller coaster ride.  It is simultaneously exhilarating and terrifying.  Learn how to stay faithful and focused during the ups and downs of God’s work.

Ministry life has plenty of ups and downs with twists and turns.  It is exciting until things start to get complicated, and you say to yourself, “What was I thinking?!”

In October 2019, I decided to take my three children to Six Flags New England in Agawam, MA.  I realized that with the busyness of ministry and the complications with my wife’s health, we hadn’t done anything special with the children during the summer.

“We must learn to manage the ups and downs of life to succeed in God’s will. ” Click To Tweet

Six Flags had a big sale where I could get season tickets for next year (and unlimited access this year) for the price of a one day visit.  It seemed like a no-brainer, so I bought the tickets and set a date.

When we drove up to the park, the first thing we could see was the steel backbones of roller coasters rising into the sky.  The kids were excited and wanted to ride them first.

I must confess that I don’t really like roller coasters.

Christian Men Wanted

Christian Men Wanted

There seems to be a shortage of Christian manhood today. Where are the men of faith and action in this generation? We need courageous Christian men!

Earnest Shackleton placed this ad while looking for a crew for an Antarctic expedition.  It is said that 5,000 men applied for the job.  The ad understated the dangers.  Shackleton’s 1914-1917 Antarctic expedition became a breathtaking tale of hardship and survival.

You get saved by believing the Gospel.  You become a disciple by continuing in God's Word.   Click To Tweet

The response to this ad reminds us that some are drawn to seemingly impossible tasks.  Mainstream Christianity is marketing the life of a Christian as a neverending party with few rules and even fewer expectations.  Our Lord presented a very different concept of discipleship.

Don’t Let Your Church Die

Don’t Let Your Church Die

In our efforts to plant new churches, we must not let the ones we have die.  Let’s strive to strengthen our existing churches while we plant new ones.

Matthew 16:18
“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

A local church is a divine organism.  It is sparked to life by Christ for His people.  It was His idea.  He founded the local church, paid for it with His blood, and made Himself the Head of it.

Furthermore, He gives each local church His divine protection.

Every faithful assembly of believers has “Divine Perpetuity.”  That’s a fancy way of saying that each church has God’s supernatural protection and can continue until Christ returns.  

A local Church cannot be murdered, but it can commit suicide. Click To Tweet

Don’t miss this powerful truth!  A Church cannot be destroyed from outside forces.  Satan cannot destroy a church from the outside.  Persecution may hurt it, but it will survive.  A government may outlaw it, but it will continue.  An enemy may bulldoze the building, but the believers will remain.  Members may be jailed or killed, but the work of God marches on.  

History reveals that while outside pressure can hinder the external ministry of a church, it causes the believers to grow more committed to God and one another.  This is Divine Perpetuity in action.  

But wait a minute.  We know that churches die.  How can this happen?
