I am going to start mixing in some old ones with new ones, so you may see more activity in your email box if you are subscribed to this blog site. Enjoy! I was reading this week and I came across someRead the Rest…


Growing in Godliness

Godliness2

      I have recently spoken to a couple of men who love to write and feel led by the Lord to share what is on their hearts. I have invited them to send me their thoughts and offered to share some them with you from time to time. Today, a friend of mine by the name of SethRead the Rest…


Extravagant Love

extravagant love 2

Satan is ever seeking to inject that poison into our hearts to distrust God’s goodness – especially in connection with his commandments. That is what really lies behind all evil, lusting and disobedience. A discontent with our position and portion, a craving from something which God has wisely held from us. Reject any suggestion that God is unduly severe withRead the Rest…


The Cost of Salvation

Christ is the very epitome of innocence, and without the blood of Christ, shed on Calvary, God’s plan of salvation would not have been fulfilled. – Alan Keyes   This week’s devotion is going to cause us to do some soul searching. It will require reflection, contemplation, and maybe even some consternation. With Father’s Day having come and gone without a callRead the Rest…


A Father’s Impact

He remembers our frame and knows that we are dust. He may sometimes chasten us, it is true, but even this He does with a smile, the proud, tender smile of a Father who is bursting with pleasure over an imperfect but promising son who is coming every day to look more and more like the One whose child he is. –Read the Rest…


Be Proud of Your Scars

Where are the marks of the cross in your life? Are there any points of identification with your Lord? Alas, too many Christians wear medals but carry no scars.                            – Vance Havner   This weekend I played in a golf tournament to benefit the core program ofRead the Rest…


Whatever your heart desires…

One of the best results of temptation is that it shows us what is in our hearts.                 – A.B. Simpson    Over the past few weeks God has created in me this burden, this question that asks, what is it that makes a man fall so deeply in love with Christ that itRead the Rest…


Cry Baby

passion for christ

“Without the willingness to be vulnerable, we will not build deep and lasting relationships in life. That’s because there is no better way to earn a person’s trust than by putting ourselves in a position of unprotected weakness and demonstrating that we believe they will support us.” – Patrick Lenceoni    Society and culture teaches us to avoid vulnerability andRead the Rest…


GCC Men’s Retreat

GCC Retreat

Overwhelmed!

get on your knees and fight like a man

In vain I have searched the Bible, looking for examples of early believers whose lives were marked by rigidity, predictability, inhibition, dullness, and caution. Fortunately, grim, frowning, joyless saints in Scriptures are conspicuous by their absence. Instead, the examples I find are of adventurous, risk-taking, enthusiastic, and authentic believers whose joy was contagious even in times of full trial. Their vision wasRead the Rest…
