Now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me, “Where are you going?” Because I have said these things you are filled with grief.

A Friend in High Places: “He Ascended into Heaven and Sits at the Right Hand of God the Father Almighty” - Various - Apr 25, 2004 - 653

This is one of the most remarkable statements in the Apostles’ Creed and it is also one of the most neglected areas of Christian doctrine. Even though we (along with all Christians) believe in the ascension of Christ, we tend not to think about it very much, at least when compared to the death ... More

Praying for the Lost - I Timothy 2:1-6 - May 14, 2000 - 12

"Prayer is the lifeline of New Testament evangelism, the oxygen for its holy fire. The New Testament was born in prayer.

More Than Conquerors - Romans 8:31-37 - Aug 1, 1993 - 456

If you’ve ever done any mountain climbing, you know that as you near the summit, you will often reach a peak that is not the ultimate peak. It’s a lower peak that you have to traverse to get up to the very top of the mountain. We’ve been climbing the mountain of God’s grace ... More

Straight Talk About Predestination - Romans 9:19-29 - May 2, 2006 - 764

In the history of the Christian church, few doctrines have been so hotly debated as the doctrine of predestination. Throughout the centuries theologians and laypeople have argued over whether this doctrine could possibly be true:It has been called the damnable doctrine of predestination. Others ha ... More

The Strangest Part of the Creed: He Descended into Hell - I Peter 3:18-19 - Apr 4, 2004 - 654

What happened to Jesus between his death and resurrection? We know his body was buried, but what about his spirit? Where was he and what was he doing between his death at 3:00 p.m. on Friday and his resurrection sometime before sunrise on Sunday morning? Christians have wondered about these things f ... More

Water, Wine, Wind, Fire - Four Pictures of the Holy Spirit - Nov 13, 2009 - 1230

Are you spooked out by the Holy Spirit?Perhaps I should say, “Are you spooked out by the Holy Ghost?” Lots of Christians are, you know. They say things like, “I know about God the Father, and I know about Jesus, but the Holy Spirit is a mystery to me.” You may remember the st ... More

Do you have star quality? While surfing the Internet, I discovered that there are numerous online quizzes to help answer that question. The quiz I took asked things like “What sort of music do you listen to?” and “Can you take constructive criticism?” and “What do you ... More

The Greatest Risk You’ll Ever Take: "I Believe in God” - Hebrews 11:6 - Jan 18, 2004 - 643

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Hebrews 11:6). The Bible declares God’s existence. It does not attempt to prove it. Certain things are so true that ... More

“One Little Word Shall Fell Him": What the Cross Meant to Satan - Colossians 2:15 - Mar 14, 1999 - 673

By 6:00 p.m. the party had started in earnest. It was Friday evening and that meant the party would probably last all night and perhaps even into the next day. Everyone who heard the news could hardly believe it, but they knew that if it were true, this would be the party to end all parties. So they ... More

Blessed are the Square Pegs - Matthew 5:10-12 - Mar 10, 1996 - 58

It’s going to be a long time because they invite Pastor Joe Wright of Wichita’s Central Christian Church to deliver the invocation again to the Kansas State Legislature. When he prayed there not long ago, in the words of Paul Harvey, he “told God on them.” At the conclusion ... More
