HAVE CHURCHES EVOLVED INTO ENTERTAINMENT CENTERS?

Have Churches Evolved Into Entertainment Centers

Wilhem Ten Boom, a Dutch pastor in the 1930’s, tried to awaken his listeners to a biblical understanding of Europe’s instability and the rise of a new dictator, Adolph Hitler. Rather than responding to his messages with faith-filled action, one church after another decided…

FULL ENGAGEMENT

My overarching takeaway from our recent Forerunners conference is the necessity for me (and each of God’s people) to become fully engaged in God’s now purposes. Simply put, a business-as-usual mindset will not win the day nor adequately prepare us for the future.   As a backdrop to this takeaway, I am reminded that Jesus…

A STUNNING THING JUST HAPPENED! WILL WE SUSTAIN IT?

Before describing the stunning movement of prayer that God orchestrated last week from coast to coast, let me briefly provide some context.   For almost 100 years, concluding around 1915, there was serious national engagement in prayer for college students.

DOES GOD SUPPORT OPEN BORDERS?

The controversy over how to secure our southern border has produced the longest government shutdown in America’s history. Much has been said about the morality of building a wall, its effectiveness, the cost, and whether President Trump is demanding a wall for political gain. However, as this debate rages, I can’t seem to escape this question: How much of the resistance to secure our borders is rooted in an ideological commitment to globalism?…

A LIGHT THAT TRANSFORMS

A LIGHT THAT TRANSFORMS

Christmas should not depress or exhaust us but should transform us! Each year, my highlight of this season is to reflect on Jesus, the light of the world entering human history as a baby to begin a global invasion of everything good (John 1:5–8).

IT’S A GREAT DAY TO EXPAND GOD’S KINGDOM

IT'S A GREAT DAY TO EXPAND GOD'S KINGDOM

I have two ambitions in life: to warn the body of Christ about activities that are being embraced in our culture that are proven to provoke God’s judgment, and to see the body of Christ experience dramatically more fruit. Everything I do revolves around this two-fold mission . . . and I love it!  …

SHOULD POLITICS MATTER TO CHRISTIANS?

Leadership matters to God! In the Bible, when God wanted to speak to a nation, to direct its course, to call it to repentance, or even to announce judgment upon it, who did He talk to?  Who did He send the prophets to confront? That’s right — the kings. The leaders. And the way the leaders went, the people mostly followed, at least for a generation.
