The Bulldog and the Skunk

November 29, 2010

I don’t know why but I’ve run into a bunch of skunks lately. Maybe it’s the season of the year or maybe I’m just unlucky, but it seems like I’ve been riding my bike past dead skunks in the road once or twice a week. Not long ago a very much alive skunk invaded our neighborhood and left his noxious calling card.One nigh...

Work-in-Progress

November 26, 2010

“The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever–do not abandon the works of your hands” (Psalm 138:8). “Your love endures forever.” This little phrase forms the foundation for the doctrine of eternal security. It is often said that those who are saved are saved forever. How do we kno...

Matthew Henry’s Thanksgiving

November 25, 2010

The name Matthew Henry may not mean anything to many who read these words. In the New International Dictionary of the Christian Church his life is summed up on two words: Biblical Expositor.He was born in 1662, the son of a Church of England minister. During his life he pastored several churches and also wrote a number of important works. His six-v...

Six Simple Words

November 24, 2010

A friend e-mailed me with the news that his mother’s cancer surgery had been successful. He ended his message with this statement: “God is God, good, and great.” As I pondered his words I was struck at once by their simplicity and profundity. How much truth those six little words contain. They summarize an entire Christian worldv...

When We Stop Playing Games

November 23, 2010

The call came from an old friend, someone I have known for over 40 years. His marriage was in serious trouble, and more importantly, he saw clearly that unless he changed from the inside out, what happened to his marriage wouldn’t really matter. His wife wasn’t the problem, although she has her issues to deal with, and his rocky marriag...

Shop at Amazon.com and Help KBM

November 22, 2010

Are you doing any online shopping this year? The answer is probably yes since the day after Thanksgiving is “Black Friday” and next Monday will be “Cyber Monday” when millions of people will shop for special deals online. Many people would rather “point and click” than brave the crowds at the local mall. It&rsq...

His Eye is on the Sparrow

November 22, 2010

It has been said that God’s omniscience is a comfort to believers and a terror to unbelievers. The comfort is easy to see. If he truly knows all things and if he ordains all things, then everything that happens to me or to those I love must happen as part of his plan. F. B Meyer has written, “It is in proportion as we see God’s wi...

Preaching Through a Translator

November 16, 2010

Several weeks ago I preached using side-by-side translation during our visit to Montreal. I did the same thing when we visited Dalian, China in October. Almost every time I mention that I’m preaching that way, someone asks me what it’s like. The answer is, it depends.Most people assume that preaching with an translator is harder than ...

Visit to Dalian University of Technology – New Video

November 11, 2010

On Sunday, October 17, God opened the door for a major speaking event in China. Despite official opposition and repeated attempts to shut down the event and a last-second change of venue, almost 500 students came to Dalian University of Technology to hear me speak about “The Wisdom of Solomon."

The Whole Bible in One Message

November 9, 2010

Last Saturday I preached a sermon at Missions Globales in Montreal called “The Whole Bible in One Message.” When I announced my topic at the Youth Festival on Friday night, the young folks laughed when I said, “The whole Bible . . . 40 minutes . . . Is it possible?"I promised that if they would come, I would try to cover the...

Hallelujah Chorus at Macy’s

November 8, 2010

Few pieces of music stir the soul like Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus.” On October 30, 2010 the Opera Company of Philadelphia and over 650 area musicians met at Macy’s Center City Department Store in Philadelphia for a “Random Act of Culture.” Without any prior announcement, they performed the “Hallelujah Chor...

November 7, 2010

Q: Where are you if you are in the most unchurched part of North America?A: You are in Quebec. Several times this weekend I have been reminded of the staggering challenge evangelical Christians face in Quebec. The statistics are startling. Far fewer than 1 percent of the population claims to be evangelical Christian. In Montreal I am told the numbe...

Detroit AirportGate C 11I am writing this quick note before we board the plane for our flight to Montreal. We’re on our way to a tremendous conference called Missions Globales.

The Unforgiving Christian

November 1, 2010

Jesus taught that if we don’t forgive others God won’t forgive us. Does this mean a person who is a Christian will lose his salvation if he refuses to forgive someone?
