Please Stand By

Yes my blog has been real quiet around here. The quiet has been intentional. Late last year I completed a 40 day fast. During that fast I felt that Jesus was asking me to lay the blog down for a while. I noticed that I had been putting too much importance into the whole blogging thing. […]

How to Ignore the Lie

Our circumstances tell us a lie to blind us from the truth of God’s vision for us.  God’s original plan for mankind was for us to live in a perfect relationship with Him. However, sin entered the earth through Adam and Eve and that our relationship has been broken ever since.   However, God sent Jesus […]

Making Ministry Simple Every Day

Ministry every day really is not difficult. At least it should not be.   We have a lady that has been faithfully attending life church for over a year now. It is amazing to see how her relationship with Jesus has grown. For many months she had been out of work and each week we would pray […]

It is Worth it All

I know there are those that think ministry is all glamorous and all Pastors do is spend an hour or two getting ready to preach. Yet there really is a lot that goes on behind the scene. For the majority of Pastors who lead small churches we really do take on a lot of different […]

Organic Worship: a Book Review

I am sure that if you asked 100 Christians to define worship, there is a good chance you would get 100 different answers. From the very time of creation of man God desired a people to fellowship with.

Plunging In

Peter seems like he would be the most unlikely candidate to be a disciple. Of course that could be the very reason why Jesus picked him.  He was confessing Jesus as the Messiah one minute only to be rebuked by Jesus next when he was told “Satan get behind me.” His passionate temper would put […]
