A Hole In My heart

Many years ago I found myself as a new young pastor in a small church in Eastern Canada. I soon learned that I didn’t know much about ministry or how to trust in the Spirit to lead and guide my ministry. I made loads of mistakes, upset a few people, and bumbled along to the […]

I was going to look into a second aspect of confession in this post, but I will have to put that off until next time because of an interesting email I received in regards to my last post. I was asked why I say I believe in the Bible alone as authoritative and yet I […]

Are You Ready?

I have a question for you and it is an important one—are you ready? According to the Bible is our relationship with God conditional based upon our obedience to Him, or is it unconditional, based on His love for us? Will His justice win out over His love or will His love win out over […]

“Did you know that you are the beneficiary of a great honor? You have the privilege of coming into the very throne room of the Great I AM. Not only have you been invited to stand in His presence, you have been invited to conversation, an intimate dialogue with the One who cares about you […]

If you don’t belong to a small group or a Bible study group you are really missing out on a great deal of fun and companionship to say nothing of what you might learn spiritually. Every time I attend I learn something new or have something jogged in my memory that brings me encouragement and […]

God loves you unconditionally. Have you ever thought of the ramifications of such a statement? Most of us have grown up with conditional love and have experienced the loss of love in our lives. As teens we fell in and out of love and felt absolute dejection and pain when that special someone broke up […]

In God’s Hands

I’ve been reading a great deal about prayer lately trying to jumpstart my prayer life. Of all the Christian disciplines this one is the hardest for me to grasp and hold onto. It is not because I don’t want to talk to God or don’t feel worthy or anything like that, it is just because […]

17. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And […]

17 “Therefore, if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away. Look, all things have become new. 18 All this is from God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling […]
