You never know where you’ll discover spiritual truth. For me it happened when I spent a few hot hours power washing the deck in our backyard. When we bought our home in Dallas four years ago, it came with an attached deck and a hot tub that was installed in 2001. We used the hot […]
Not long ago I received a note telling me a dear friend was dying. During his long and varied life, he has traveled much, touched many lives, and made a difference for Christ. Now he is in hospice care. Here is an edited version of the letter I wrote to encourage him as he waits […]
The Bible instructs us to “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). We know this is biblical, but it is not always easy. The question revolves around the expression “in all circumstances.” We know that we should give thanks when things are going well. […]
Yesterday I posted my latest revision of a sermon called How Can I Be Filled With the Holy Spirit? This is actually the third version of a sermon that I first preached over 40 years ago. The topic seems even more important to me today than it did when I was younger. As I roll […]

The key to success in life is how well you adapt to Plan B.
We don’t work miracles. Jesus does.
Jesus doesn’t tell us in advance what he will do. Will we obey him anyway?
All he wants is what we have right now.
Take the little that you have and give it to Jesus.
Jesus wants us to know that without him we can do nothing.
“You give them something to eat” (Mark 6:37). This command of Christ seems unfair because he asks the disciples to do the impossible. How can they with little money and even less food feed 5000 hungry men? They can’t. That’s the whole point. God often asks us to do impossible things so that we are forced to admit our desp...
I had lunch with a man who for many years had been rising to the top of his profession.
