Thoughts for the Day

Making Church Your Habit The church habit I’m talking about isn’t a monk or nun sort of thing; rather it’s something that we need to do with frequency. The writer of Hebrews says it’s a necessity. “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage … Read more

Thought for Today: We Need Each Other “We can do more together than we can do separately.” Solomon said, “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he … Read more

Thought For Today: Don’t Fake It Till You Make It There are three basic fears that stop relationships. They are the fear of exposure, the fear of rejection, and the fear of being hurt. As a result, most people, especially in church, put up facades (false fronts). They have the false perception that they can … Read more

Thought for Today: The Power of Humility It is in humility that we are lifted up into the presence of God. It is in humility that the true power of the Lord resides. Jesus said, “He who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who … Read more

Thought For Today: “Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?” These were Rodney King’s words that sparked the 1992 Los Angeles riots. And these words should resonate with us as believers, because this was the prayer of Jesus. “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me … Read more

Thought for Today: Have We Missed the Spirit? “Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?” (Galatians 3:3). If we began in the Spirit why are we trying to perfect ourselves and the ministry through our own works, righteous or not? Jesus made … Read more

Thought for Today: Firing Blanks The night prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, a young sailor was at a Bible study, and the leader asked people to recite their favorite Bible passage. Try as he might he couldn’t think of one, except John 3:16. The only problem was that the guy right in front … Read more

Thought For Today: Invest Your Afflictions Now here’s a concept we don’t hear everyday. But afflictions are a part of life. King David knew this, but he also knew of God’s deliverance. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:19). Now while we love to … Read more

Thought For Today: The Need for Cleansing If a child disobeys and runs outside on a rainy day and comes back covered in mud, he or she doesn’t lose their membership in the family (maybe and arm or a leg if mom has just cleaned the floor). But while they remain a member of the … Read more

Thought For Today: Christ Comes in the Midst of Crisis Three young Jewish men learned that obedience is far greater than compromise, because it brings Christ into the crisis. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to bow to the golden image of King Nebuchadnezzar. As a punishment for their insolence the King had them thrown into … Read more

Thought for Today: Abiding in Christ Abiding in Christ is of supreme importance, which is seen in Jesus’ teaching of the vine and branches. It directly affects our work and responsibilities: “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you … Read more

Thought For Today: The Full Extent of God’s Love “I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ” (Ephesians 3:17b-18). God’s love is beyond comparison. The depth of God’s love – … Read more

Thought for Today: Uncomplicating Forgiveness Why do we make the forgiveness process so hard upon ourselves? We go around defeated and deflated because we haven’t yet forgiven ourselves. And therein lies the problem. We can’t forgive ourselves. It isn’t in our power. It’s a power that belongs to God alone. This is something that the … Read more

Thought for Today: To This Day Throughout the Old Testament we read that something has remain the same or in the possession of God’s people up and to the day that the Holy Scripture was written. The same goes for God’s promises, they never fail. “For all the promises of God in Him are yes, … Read more

Thought for Today: Restored and Repurposed “Restore us to yourself, O Lord, that we may return; renew our days as of old” (Lamentations 5:21). God takes broken people and puts them back together again to His original design. To say this another way, God is in the human restoration business. To restore literally means to … Read more

April 23, 2018

Thought For Today: No Let Up Every believer in Jesus Christ will experience Satan’s constant attacks. All the powers of hell are aligned against us. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the … Read more

April 20, 2018

Thought for Today: A Heart of Compassion As Jesus was approaching the city of Nain, a large procession of mourners was carrying out the body of a mother’s only son. Seeing her obvious grief Jesus had compassion on her. He then touched the coffin and said, “Arise,” and the young man sat up and began … Read more

Thought for Today: Transformed Thoughts Our thought life can kill us. We have all these thoughts swirling around in our heads, crazy thoughts (bungee jumping), consuming thoughts (ice cream), unrelenting thoughts (what ifs), private thoughts (hopelessness, fear, sorrow), infected thoughts (God doesn’t love me), and anxious thoughts (what will tomorrow bring). What is the antidote … Read more

The Rarity of God’s Word When Samuel was a young lad living and working in the Tabernacle, God gives this assessment of the people, “The word of the Lord was rare in those days, there was no widespread revelation” (1 Samuel 3:1). There are three reasons why. First, they were in open disobedience to God’s … Read more

Thought for Today: Loving God A dad walked by his young daughter’s bedroom and saw her playing on the floor surrounded by her dolls and stuffed animals. Crocodile tears were streaming down her face.
