Why do we fast?

Many people across our nation are entering into a 40-day "Daniel" fast starting today, eating no meats or "pleasant food" from March 1st to April 9th. The Lord has given us an invitation to focus our prayers on Matthew 9:38, asking the "Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest", specifically to… Read More »

On intimacy with God - do we really know Jesus?

Allow me to ask a bold question. Are we more in love with the idea of Jesus, the power of Jesus, or the doctrines of Jesus than we are in love with Jesus Himself? I’ve written on this topic in these past articles here and here but I’ve been been personally convicted again lately by… Read More »

Growing in Intimacy with God - Part 2

In part 1 of this series, I wrote briefly about the subject of intimacy with God – what it is, what it isn’t, and how we grab a hold of the means to growing in it. We all want to grow in intimacy with God, but in order to grow in something, we must have… Read More »

We’ve been skiing a lot this week, and… Read More »

God has placed one of the most amazing privileges available to us in our grasp - walking in the Spirit. The Father has chosen to release His presence and power of the Spirit in us and through us, but this promise will not simply happen in a vacuum. He made it clear that He would… Read More »

Revival is not the end

We are about to begin our 40-day fast focusing on revival in America. In the midst of the buzz of pre-fast excitement and activity, the Lord is teaching me about my over-romanticized version of revival and what it means to see the church passionate about Jesus once again. Revival is more than some good church… Read More »

Some thoughts on the grace of God

I have recently been pondering the word Christians throw around all the time - "grace". By definition, grace is the unmerited favor of God. He gives us something we are undeserving of. I am so thankful for His grace! But as we read in 2 Peter and Jude, one of the great pressures in the… Read More »

Perseverance and Endurance in Trials

The Lord has stirred my heart lately with these passages from James 1: "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
