Walk on Water, Pete!

Christ calls us to find out what he is doing in the world, and then to fling ourselves wholeheartedly into his cause. Staying in the boat may be comfortable and safe, but that’s not what the life of faith is all about.

How to Meet the Enemy

No believer is safe who faces Satan in his own strength. No believer is more secure than he who goes into battle wearing the whole armor of God.

Why God Allows Good Men to Fall

Peter still speaks to us today. “If you think you’ve fallen short, if you feel like you’ve denied him, look at what happened to me.”

Why I Am Not a Pessimist

Christians are both pessimists and optimists, but we are much more optimistic because though we see what is happening in the
world around us, we know that Jesus Christ conquered the grave. And because he lives, we too will live.

The Next Hero

Hebrews 11 is God’s “Perpetual Plaque” of those who lived by faith. And if you look closely, you can see there is plenty of room for more names. There’s room for you and there’s room for me.

How God’s Will Can Mess Up Your Life in a Good Way

God’s will is always good, but it’s not always comfortable. And it’s certainly not predictable. What if God blew your categories and gave you success beyond your wildest dreams? What if he let you fail miserably so he could give you overwhelming success later?

Miracles Come in Many Varieties

I cannot promise you an easy road if you decide to follow Jesus Christ. But I can promise you this. You will be blessed and you
won’t be sorry. And in the end, you will discover that the life of faith is full of adventure, and you will be glad you weren’t a couch
potato but dared to make a difference in the world.

From Rahab to Jesus

God delights in saving notorious sinners. He proved it by saving Rahab, a prostitute in ancient Jericho whose faith saved her whole family. There is no pit so deep that the love of God is not deeper still. There is no sin so terrible that Jesus cannot forgive it.

Why God Makes It Hard When It Ought to be Easy

2 Samuel 2-3 tell the story of David’s long struggle to become king over all Israel. His life is a pattern of how God deals with his children. It is God’s plan to vindicate us slowly, bless us openly, surprise us occasionally, and test us continually. God intends to develop our character, and to do that adversity is essential.
