Receiving and Granting Forgiveness

You’ve probably heard people pray like this: …And Lord, we ask You to forgive us for all our sins. But hold it. We tell the lost–and correctly so–that they can be forgiven of all their sins through Christ. That being true, why do forgiven Christians ask God’s forgiveness?

Watching, Unperturbed

The magician was truly awesome! He held the audience in the palm of his hand from the moment the house lights dimmed, playing with their emotions as deftly as a gifted musician. "Where did those rabbits come from?" "How did those scarves get in there?" "That saw has to be cutting into that woman! Look Continue Reading…

Developing the Father’s Heart

Did you ever wonder who had the more difficult thirty-three years as Christ walked the earth, the Father or the Son? I did. I used to think: I am grateful that God gave His Son to die for me… but I’d much rather be the Father who gave the Son than to be the Son Continue Reading…

It Could Happen to You

The tossing and turning act was over. Asleep at last. But no such luck for this tired traveler. Sirens began squealing all through the hotel.

Will You Be My Valentine?

"How long can you live without love?" "Marriage? This is marriage? This is love? No touching, no tenderness, no thoughtfulness, no togetherness, no communication, no sex…?" "Is she attracted to me? I don’t mean just physically. I mean every way. Do you understand what I’m saying?" "Praise? My husband needs praise? Are you kidding? He’s Continue Reading…

There it was. I couldn’t cut it out of Habakkuk. That’s not playing according to the rules. What could I do with that verse that had just hit me like a ton of bricks and left my stomach knotted up? "They will be held guilty,They whose strength is their god." —Habakkuk 1:11(b) But I was Continue Reading…

"It was no big deal for Peter to try walking on water. He was a fisherman. Obviously he must have been a good swimmer, right? If he sank, he’d just swim out. No sweat. I’m like that," my dear friend said. "If I see I’m getting in over my head in my business, it’s no Continue Reading…
