Three very bad things happened as a result of the Fall (in the Garden of Eden):

–Division between God and the human race.
–Division between humans and other humans.
–Division within each person.

And since the Fall, many have labored passionately to remove the divisions and brokenness between humans and within humans, and to bring wholeness for each person and for the human race. But WHOLENESS is not a method, it’s a PERSON — a person named Jesus. And until estrangement with God is dealt with, all other efforts to bring wholeness will ultimately fail.

But the glorious Gospel, via the Blood of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit, has made a way, and offered an unshakable foundation upon which all other efforts at wholeness can be built. That is why we must never, in the midst of our efforts, neglect the preaching of the Gospel: Calling lost human beings to the foot of the cross, where they can encounter a loving Savior, repent of their sins, and be saved and made whole.

“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes:” (Romans 1:16)

Today is the National Day of Prayer,
an especially good reminder to be praying for our nation.

“Anyone who listens to the Word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.” (James 1:23-24)

DISOBEDIENCE greatly increases confusion. But OBEDIENCE brings clarity — and takes our lives out of the abstract and the hypothetical — and brings it into the REAL – and we begin to see who we really are — the free, Christ-like ones we were meant to be.

“But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it — he will be blessed in what he does.” (James 1:25)

Here’s a short video I made for GOOD FRIDAY.
Hope it blesses you.​

“You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit — fruit that will last…” (John 15:16)

From Heaven’s point of view, there’s a big difference between being busy and being productive. It’s good occasionally to take an inventory of how we’re spending our time, energy, and resources, so that we can avoid being overwhelmed by the trivial and mere distractions — and so that our lives will be truly, eternally fruitful.

Find a way to do Kingdom stuff every day (sharing the Gospel, praying with people, interceding for the lost people in your life, etc.). It will bring Joy to the heart of Jesus! Even little things are significant…

“His Master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your Master’s happiness!'” (Matthew 25:23)

YES, LIVE VICARIOUSLY THROUGH YOURSELF! (Ran into this sign at a car dealership today) We need to stop living our lives through books and movies for awhile — and unplug from electronica, entertainment, social media, etc. for awhile — and go on some real adventures with the Holy Spirit!  It’s not complicated — just get away from the noise of the world long enough to be able to hear what God is saying to you.  And then go do whatever He says!
