I Grew Up In Church, But was 51 When I Became a Christian

Click Here To Watch Testimony I met my brother in Christ nearly 15 years ago and about a year ago heard his testimony. 15 years ago, I would have never doubted he was a Christian, but realized it was a few years later when he actually became a “New Creation in Christ”. Clyde Kerns had the Holy Spirit working on him for a few years and he sensed something not…

Revival Experience

Revival Expreience

We were asked recently by a pastor to help put on a ‘revival’ for his church. It was something the Lord had laid on his heart and we were honored that we could help. My wife and I’s desire is to see lives transformed in Christ and we thought this was a great next step to where God is leading us. For about three years I have thought about what…

Six Weeks To Live

IMG_2893

What would you do if you had 6 weeks to live? How would you live out the rest of your life?   Would what you did be important?   Would you pour into those that meant the most to you? Would you leave a legacy? Would you finish strong? Who you tell those close to you that you loved them? How would you show them?   Think about this…….some 2,000 years…

Going Against The Flow

Screen Shot 2014-08-28 at 11.24.17 AM

Some time back my family visited an aquarium and I was so encouraged by what I saw. Two fish in the midst of the huge circular tank that went around the room going in a different direction. All the other fish were going one direction and these two were going against the flow!   It reminded me of us as followers of Jesus. It is true that we as Christians should…

Where’s the Herd Going?

A brother in Christ was sharing with me some things the Lord laid on his heart. He told me about these wild animals- hundreds of thousand of them running in herds on the plains in Africa. Zoologist were studying them because of the nature of their behavior. Some of the animals would take off running and then the rest would just follow. The strange behavior was many of the lead animals…

Being Salt- Drawing the Best Out of Each Other

One of the properties of Salt is to draw out flavor.  To draw out the best in one another.  That's right- to draw out the best in one another.  We as followers of Christ are to be salt and draw the best out of each other.   There are many ways to do this, but one great way is through encouragement!  Be an encourager and look for opportunities with those...

When to Call It Out?

I had an experience sometime back where someone posted something on Facebook, this video and it was a person calling out something in our culture that was truly seen to be set against God. I heard it has gone viral and over 3 million views.  Some of the comments I’ve seen were geared toward ‘we don’t need to be spreading this kind of fear; this kind of stuff is crazy; snopes says…

Santa Claus and Idol Worship- Where do we put him? Where is Jesus in all of this?

Santa Claus and Idol Worship 2

It was a few days after Christmas and my wife and I were talking about Santa Claus.  We hear about him every year, a lot of course it’s Christmas right, but this year our thoughts went even a little more different.  We hear songs and comments made and it hit us- there is a culture that is putting Santa Claus in a God like place.  Really think about it before…

All I Need Is You, Lord

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 11.45.28 AM

One of my favorite songs, really!  All I need is You!  All we need is Him! May we always know that to be true, no matter what you may be going through, have come out of or are going into. Take a few moments just to worship our God and think about the words-  He holds the universe, it’s all His and truly all we need is Him.   As…

Where’s Our Bar?

  Do you think when we ask Jesus for something, really anything do we lower the bar on what we are asking about? He said ask anything in His name and He would do it. Anything. But He also said to remain in Him. Think about it when we remain in Him and He in us we will bear much fruit. So what about asking Him to bear much fruit?…

Bananas From A Grape Vine?

IMG_0432

Asking for bananas from a grape vine? Sounds crazy doesn’t it? Yet there are so many times in our lives that we are asking for things from God that are not the fruit that He wants for us to produce. If we ask anything in His name He will do it- if we do it with the right motives and it’s what He wants for us to be asking for….

He Can Break Every Chain

One of my favorite songs!   He Can break every chain.  We are in a spiritual war, you may not know how to use all of the spiritual weapons to fight, but I will tell you this-  There is Power in the Name of Jesus.   If you don’t know anything else to say or how to fight in this war, call upon the Name of Jesus and use the…
