“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Are you ready for Christmas? Maybe you’re not ready to answer that question. After all, we’ve got two weeks to buy gifts, wrap presents, make candy, decorate the tree, put up the lights, go to parties, watch a […]

“Truly I tell you, no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life” (Mark 10:29-30).

In today’s Advent Devo, I give an update on Marlene’ surgery, and we talk about Mike Royko and having clout in heaven. Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“We have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One” (1 John 2:1). People who live in big cities understand this principle. We deal with so many different government bodies—local, state and federal—that sooner or later we’ll get in trouble one way or another. At that moment, only one question crosses the mind: “Who can help […]
Check out today’s devo: The Promise of Healing. Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“The Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings” (Malachi 4:2). The Old Testament ends with this beautiful picture of our Lord. When he comes, he will “rise” as the sun rises in the sky. When he comes, he will banish the darkness. When he comes, his light will fill the world. But […]
In today’s Advent devo, The Promise of Freedom from the Power of Sin, I give an update on Marlene’s surgery. Thank you for your prayers! Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“Through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:2). Pay attention to that little word “free.” It’s the key to the whole Christian life. God always wanted to set us free. Whether we knew it or not, before we came to Christ, […]
Check out today’s video devo called The Promise of Forgiveness. Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“Through Jesus your sins can be forgiven” (Acts 13:38). Can we really be forgiven, or is forgiveness just a distant dream? If the Vegas bookies laid odds on our forgiveness, what would the odds be—50,000 to 1, or 100,000 to 1, or maybe even 1,000,000 to 1? Look in the mirror and consider your own […]
Today’s Advent devo is called The Promise of Adoption. Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“God sent his Son . . . to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons” (Galatians 4:4-5). Christmas tells us how Christ came. This passage tells us why he came. Christ came to redeem us and to adopt us into God’s family. To redeem means to set free from slavery […]
Check out today’s Advent Devo: The Promise of Reconciliation. Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“The Return of the Prodigal Son,” Rembrandt, 1667. “When we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son” (Romans 5:10). Think about the phrase, “God’s enemies.” Is there anything sadder than that? To be an enemy of the God of the universe. To stand opposed to the Lord Almighty. […]
Here’s the link to Day 1 Advent Video Devotions: The Promise of an Anchor for the Soul. Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1). It’s hard for us to believe God loves us. Especially when we take a good look in the mirror. It’s easy to feel condemned when we think of our failures, our mistakes, our foolish comments, our stubborn pride, and the grudges […]
Here’s the link Day 1 Advent Video Devotions: The Promise of an Anchor for the Soul. Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. Jesus has entered there on our behalf as a forerunner” (Hebrews 6:19-20). Everyone has an anchor. The only question is, how well does it hold? If your soul is anchored to your money, what will you […]
Tomorrow we begin our Advent Journey called “Christmas Promises.” Here’s the intro to the series: Promises made. Promises kept. That’s not just a slogan. That’s Christmas in four words.
