We all know the story of the Good Samaritan. We’ve heard a score of sermons that have, as their core lesson, the rescue of a battered traveller by an unlikely hero—a Samaritan. The take away from the parable can go one of two ways. First, our perceived enemies may not really be enemies and may […]

I just returned from vacation and realized it has been a long time since I sent out my last post. I woke yesterday morning to the headlines of the worse mass shooting in United States history with over two-hundred and fifty people killed or wounded in the Los Vegas shooting. We live in a world […]

Relentless Tenderness of Jesus

God loves you unconditionally. This statement is one of the most revolutionizing concepts that a follower of Jesus could ever comprehend. It is easy to make the Gospel all about us, but that is not the true Gospel. The very core of Scripture is the exposure to a lost world that the great unfathomable God […]

32 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave Him up for us all—how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those […]

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not condemned; he […]

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 […]

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 […]

“He who believes in the Son has eternal life” John 3:36 “He who hears my word and believes Him who sent me, has eternal life; he does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” John 5:24. These two verses tell us that we have eternal life right now. If you have […]
