Do Not Stagger

Reaching the World with the Gospel of Jesus Christ

He (Abraham) staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform– Romans 4:20-21

Abraham, the Bible says, was strong in faith; he was FULL PERSUADED at the promise of God. You see, strong faith doesn’t stagger at the promise of God; it maintains confession in the face of overwhelming opposition.

In your life, refuse to consider the natural circumstances or evidences that seem to war against your faith. Refuse to be moved by them. 1 Peter 5:8-10 say, “Be sober, be vigilant; because YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 WHOM RESIST STEADFAST IN THE FAITH, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the GOD of…

The Transforming Power of the Word

Reaching the World with the Gospel of Jesus Christ

“And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His [very own] image in ever increasing splendor {and} from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.”– 2 Corinthians 3:18 (Amplified Bible)

The Word of God is the mirror of God; it shows the picture of the real you. However, unlike a natural mirror that merely reflects the image of the one looking into it, the mirror of God actually changes you into the image God sees you to be! Every time you look into the mirror of God, there’s a change that takes place in your life-a metamorphosis; you’re literally transfigured into the image that you see in the Word. The more and longer you look into…

What I Learned on a Student Mission Trip to NYC

Giving Future Faith to our Faith Future

wol-logo-fullThis past week, I had the joy of leading a group of students to a mission trip to New York.  The beginning of the week was filled with hard work on the Word of Life Bible Institute Campus and Word of Life camps.  We mowed acres of land, and painted about a dozen cabins.  It was a full couple days of work.  Then, we took off for New York City to share the Gospel on the streets.  Here’s what I learned from this precious week of ministry…

No “I Can’t”.  We could have easily made this entire trip a week of work.  Painting, cleaning, and serving at the camp would have been a blessing to both our team and the camp.  We would have been physically stretched for sure, but these students needed something more.  This was a step of faith, and for some a terrifying step.  But they did…

Don’t Be Too Busy to Get to Tomorrow

Giving Future Faith to our Faith Future

sorry_were_too_busy_graphic1Paul David Tripp says the biggest challenge facing the church today – busyness.  We are soooo busy!  You would think it wouldn’t be so busy w/ technology that allows us to:  Mow our lawns & sweep our living room rugs with remote controls, research a topic on our phone in 2 seconds what it used to take a trip to the Encyclopedia section at the library to figure out, and microwavable everything” – bacon, eggs, mac n cheese, pizza…even salmon says the internet.

44% of Americans call themselves “workaholics”.  We spend 4.7 hours a day on our cell phones.   The average young American will spend 10,000 hours playing video games before the age of 21.  Maybe it’s not we’re too busy…but we’re too busy with the wrong things.  Read Matthew 6:19-21 as a refresher of what we should be doing. are-we-too-busy-448x203

We worry so much about the temporary…
