We do not derive our identity from what we do. We derive our identity from God who created us with specific gifts for a specific plan and purpose that He has for our lives. (See Psalm 139) Our quest therefore is to not get our identity from what we do but to take our identity [...]

Just a few words on what you have just experienced this weekend. I find myself reminding people often that we do not come to church, we are the church. When you realize you are something and you didn’t come to something, it impacts you. If you didn’t come to something, you won’t leave something. I [...]

It is never just about you! There are always ramifications to every decision you make. From the cheeseburger you decided to purchase (you have helped to create a job for the person behind the counter) to your life passion….(hunting is not just about you, it also impacts all of those around you).   My decision [...]

Noticed vs. Needed & Missed

In today’s landscape of social media, it is easy to fall into the trap of trying to be noticed. The crazy video, the edgy post, the controversial quote, are all ways to be noticed. The more crazy, more edgy, more controversial it is, the more clicks, likes, shares, we receive. It feeds the need that [...]

Do My Actions Count?

Many times we question whether we are being effective? Are the things we are doing really counting/amounting to anything of real value. Because most times we are limited to what we can see in the natural, we base our assumptions on what we can see in the natural. I believe that everything we do will [...]

For Ministers

The world in which you and I publicly minister today is totally different than it used to be and we need to be aware of that as we teach/preach the Word of the Lord. No longer are we just speaking to our family that we know and experience life with. We are in essence speaking [...]

Expectations! Expectations are in every aspect of our lives. We have expectations on just about every aspect of our lives, from the traffic flow on the way to our destination this morning to the outcome of our investment in people’s lives throughout the years. And everything in between. We all carry expectations on what our [...]

You are a Steward

We are all stewards of all that the Lord has given us. When we think of stewardship, most of the time, we relegate it to stewarding finances. But the truth is, it encompasses so much more than just money. We are stewards of our time, our spiritual gifts, our intellectual resources, our relationships, both with [...]

It is Healthy to be Grateful

As we start a new year together, we are reminded of the goodness of God and so grateful to the Lord for His grace extended toward us on a daily basis. Mark Gerson writes in his book “The Telling” that Professor Robert Emmons of the University of California had his subjects spend nine weeks expressing [...]

Time! We all assume that there are 24 hours new and fresh coming at us tomorrow. At least I do. And what I don’t get done today, tomorrow is another day where I can pick up where I left off. And we all know with a fact that we always have time to do what [...]
