Seeds to Trees
post

“The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how.” Mark 4:26-27 [9] About 25 years ago, we noticed something growing next to the house in front. I realized it was a little tree and almost cut it down, but we were sort of curious. We thought, “Let’s see what kind it is.” … Read More

A God Hug
page

Do you need a hug from God? Maybe His comfort and assurance? An arm around your shoulder from the one who deeply loves you? From the only one who can make things right in your life? There are times when it is obvious that things are NOT within our control, and this can bring a sense of overwhelming distress, and fear, loneliness, or frustration, cynicism, and hopelessness. Is this bad? Yes and no. It’s bad to feel these things because … Read More

Encourage Others

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” I Thes 5:11 (NIV) [8] We always hear the cliché “A diamond in the rough.” The bad thing about clichés is that they can lose their full meaning by the time they become clichés, because if we connect with the original idea, it can help us look at people in a new way. I was in a Starbucks a few years ago meeting with … Read More

“Then the Spirit said to Philip, ‘Go near and overtake this chariot.’ So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, ‘Do you understand what you are reading?’ And he said, ‘How can I, unless someone guides me?’ And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him.” Acts 8:29-31 [7] Often we don’t need to seek out people to witness to. Most of us encounter opportunities when we are not even looking for … Read More

Know Your Assignment

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,  12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11 [6] I’ve shared before that God called me into the ministry of evangelism. He made it evident particularly on my mission trip to Russia when I could feel His Holy Spirit inspiring me as I talked with people. He gave me … Read More

Any God Will Do

“There is no other God but one. For even if there are so-called gods . . . for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.” 1 Cor 4-6 [5] How do we share Jesus with someone who believes that any version of god will do? They might be a family member, or friend, or coworker. If … Read More

Treats not Tricks

“In meekness [instruct] those that oppose themselves; God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth [that] they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” 2Tim 2:25-26 (KJV)   [4] I was street-witnessing with Frank and the guys on Friday and I crossed paths with a quiet young man. I offered him a tract and he smiled and took it. Then I said something like, … Read More

“Then the LORD answered me and said: Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.” Hab 2:2 “They shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent,” Isaiah 62:6b   [3] I’m a little behind on my posts because last week I went to the ACFW (Association of Christian Fiction Writers) conference in Nashville. I like to travel alone at times like … Read More

  “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” 1 Pet 3:15     [2] My first big missionary trip was a completely unexpected opportunity to go to Russia with my church. It was unexpected because although I had heard the announcements, and my heart wanted to go, I knew that I didn’t have … Read More
