A Field of Dreams

Just imagine that you were offered the “Deal of a lifetime”, a choice piece of property in the mountains with a luxury hotel on it. The building is worth $20 million, easily, but you can pick it up for $20,000. What do you think? Would it make a difference that it was located in the…

The Power of Obedience 

A recently licensed pilot was flying his private plane in a cloudy day. He was not very experienced in instrument landing. When the control tower was to bring him in, he began to get panicky. Then a stern voice came over the radio, “You just obey instructions, we’ll take care of the obstructions.” The New…

The Power of a Broken Heart

Mary proudly holds her newborn baby boy as she and her husband enter the temple court.   Today they have made the short trip from Bethlehem to dedicate her firstborn son to the Lord.

But God…….

You really can determine a lot about someone on a first encounter if we know how to read the signs. Body language, facial expressions, and first words can communicate a lot about who we are if we know what to look for. The first words of the book of Jeremiah reveal a lot as well….

The Resurrection Changes Everything!

Someone once noted that what happened as a result of the Resurrection is unprecedented in human history. In the span of a few hundred years, a small band of seemingly insignificant believers succeeded in turning an entire empire upside down. ‘They faced the tyrant’s brandished steel, the lion’s gory mane, and the fires of a…

Blind No More

For 51 years Bob Edens was blind. He couldn’t see a thing. His world was a black hall of sounds and smells. He felt his way through five decades of darkness. And then, he could see. A skilled surgeon performed a complicated operation and, for the first time, Bob Edens had sight. He found it…

Go into all the world.

There is a story of determination that has inspired me for a long time. One stormy night, Hudson Taylor was scheduled to speak in Birmingham, England, at the Severn Street schoolroom. His hostess attempted to dissuade him from going in the torrential downpour by telling him that everyone would assume it was canceled. “But was…

The Word of God

In 2010 Sandra Bullock won the Best Actress Academy Award for her portrayal of Leigh Ann Tuohy an otherwise normal mother who became part of an extraordinary story. The Blind Side chronicles a Christian family who took in a homeless young man and gave him the chance to reach his God-given potential and finish his…
