Hebrews 12 speaks on the importance of us running our race. Whether you are conscious of it or not, you are in a race, a spiritual one. You have been called to run it with endurance and excellence. Our ability to fulfill this call can be hindered by sins and other earthly attachments. In these latter days it is even moreso important to exhibit endu…

I want to continue on with the topic of words with you all. I think it's interesting that Proverbs states that "death and life are in the power of the tongue," putting death before life. I believe this serves to emphasize the incredible destructive power that words can have to the reader ensuring we take care. Tonight however I would like to cover …

I am continuing my series on the power of words, in particular the power of life and death that is held in your words. Our words have a way of lifting us up, like through praise. They are also just as capable as limiting us. It is therefore of utmost important to reflect on our words. Why? Your sayings can undo your prayings. Our time in prayer is …

In our faith the words we speak have immense value. The act of salvation itself is said by the Bible to be partially an act of speech, describing that by the act of confession salvation is brought about. Our words can affect three worlds: the one we are living in, the spirit world, and the demonic realm. I want to recap today what I have been cover…

I would like to continue on with the concept of the power of words, this time focusing on what Jesus said about the power of words in the gospels. Words can linger in your spirit for a very long time, and the positive and negative statements of others can stick with you for even a lifetime. We have all been witnesses of how a kind word from someone…

I feel that there is a power in the thought of "people don't realize how important their life is." Your life is tremendously important regardless of what stage you are in or what you have done. You can have the sole power in some cases to make a difference in someone else's life. We have all been on the receiving side of this, where our life was fo…

I'm going to continue my message from several weeks ago which focused on why our words matter. Even if we are taking care to not speak profanity or unwholesome talk, there is still attention that should be paid to the words we are speaking in terms of what we are speaking over ourselves. The Bible states that God will judge us on terms of the words…

I am grateful for the role that women have had in church history and that they continue to have. The first person to accept Christ in the continent of Europe that we know of was a woman named Lydia, and the gospels also describe a number of women who ministered to the Lord. Proverbs 31 describes several criteria of what makes such a "wise" woman wh…

What makes for a great marriage? God puts a priority on marriage, in fact, it was his idea. A good marriage does not only benefit itself -- it will benefit your career, mental health, and almost every other area you can imagine. People can develop an erroneous idea that they can compartmentalize their marriage, but it affects every part of your lif…

I had a birthday a few months ago and turned 60. I felt that now was a good time for me to develop a 10 year plan to set out goals and things to work toward. One of the main tenets is the desire I have to think about the words that are spoken out of my mouth. The harvest created by your words can be either bad or good. God is merciful to us but ult…

Did you know God wants people to not only be whole physically, but also mentally and emotionally? In the book of Job, we read about a man who went through a very difficult period in his life. He lost all of his children, his wife, all of his possessions, and every last thing he considered important. The book of Job is essentially him processing all…

God calls us not to burn bridges, but to build them. We are called to restore people and relationships, and the shortest surviving letter of Paul's centers on this concept. Paul had received and ministered to an escaped slave named Onesimus. Upon sending the slave back to his master, Philemon, Paul wrote, urging that Philemon send the slave back to…

In October 2019, I wrote a journal entry where I recorded how I had asked the Lord what life adjustment I could make to have a greater impact on his kingdom. During the night, I felt God deal with me about the importance of meditating the word. I knew that God was saying if I would meditate God's word regularly, I would be more effective to him. I …

One of the greatest blessings God gave me in this world was an older brother. He in some ways was like a father to me and is someone I truly look up to. Family is a dear thing that God has given us on earth, and nothing is more crushing than the death of a family member. Grief can shadow all of the joy in your life and cause you to temporarily forg…

Each year I attempt to come at the resurrection of Christ from a new angle, and this year I would like to focus on the biblical concept of humility before honor. God rewards humility and a self-awareness in a world that is all about "me". Christ gave the ultimate example of humility in the Passion week - he was whipped, scorned, spit upon, and beat…

When I first began reading the Bible as a high schooler, I realized so many of the passages warned about money and greed. Indeed, there are many people who fell astray in the Bible due to the unyielding influence of money on their decision making. And yet we must recognize that the Bible does not say money is evil, only that the love of it is. God …

Often there is a question of what happened between the death of Jesus and his resurrection. We are given a glimpse into that interval in the passage Ephesians 4, where it is said that Jesus descended down into the earth before ascending up into the heavens. One sentence stands out in particular: "When he ascended on high he led a host of captives, …

What does the Bible have to say about God's plan for us being blessed in life? There can often be some opposition to stating the belief that God wants to bless us in ways other than just non-financial. The simple truth is that Satan does not want you to be blessed, but God wants to provide for you and meet your needs. The prosperity God wishes to b…

We live in a day where there are a lot of distractions and ways to get sidetracked off the main thing. Of course, the main thing in Christianity is to love the Lord our God and to love our neighbor. The main thing is to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. It is obvious from these statements that we are called to run with purpos…

The Bible talks about blessings for you, but not only spiritual ones. There is a biblical basis for God blessing his people with material blessings. While we won't have any need for physical possessions in eternity, the fact is that to live in this world money is a requirement. My hope is that we can go through several scriptures that demonstrate t…

I believe that despite the darkness of our times, God is going to do a great work and manifest his glory. Psalms 75:7 says, "But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another." We can feel powerless in a world seemingly ruled by enemies of God, but it must be remembered that God is sovereign and fully in control of the situation. Th…

I grew up in a good church, but if you had asked me at the time to tell you what the Bible says about money, I would have only had negative things to say from the Bible. Certainly, the Bible does warn against greed and the dangerous pursuit of money. However, I was not fully exposed to the other side of the Bible's relationship to money, its promis…

Are you living God's good life he has planned for every believer? The Bible describes a very specific life that God would desire his children live. It is important to not stumble in your Christian life and become caught up in anger, jealousy, or disunity. Therefore, it is crucial that the believer exercise thankfulness, avoid bitterness, and posses…

God has a financial plan for everyone. Just as he has a plan that relates to your health, marriage, or family, he also has a plan for and cares about your finances. The simple fact is that to live on this earth, money is required, and God is well aware of his. Throughout the Bible, God states that he will provide for his people and take care of us.…

Do you know how old Moses was when he died? The Bible says he was 120 years old, and yet his body was still in excellent condition: "His eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated." The Bible describes that for those who possess faith and do God's will, God extends a supernatural strength toward them to help them fulfill their mission. For Moses…

Who are you in Christ? What belongs to you in Christ? I am not referring to things that require much prayer and fasting to obtain from God. These are things we have inherited as part of our rebirth in Christ. Colossians 2:10 states that we are "complete in Him." The Bible speaks in both a past and present tense about God's work in us. We have been …

I would like to talk to you about the resurrection of Jesus Christ and its implication on our lives today that it holds. I don't want to come across like I am telling you something you don't know already -- I am talking about something very fundamental to our faith. This belief is losing ground in younger American generations according to polls, an…

I want to speak to you about the completeness of the believer when they are in Christ. As a transformed individual through the saving power of the blood of Jesus, we have access to a completeness of that comes through faith. This completeness comes about because of Christ's triumph in death and resurrection. As Colossians 2:15 states, "He disarmed …

At some point in all of our lives, something is going to happen that rubs us the wrong way or hurts our feelings. It can feel like life isn't fair -- but as someone wise once told me, the fair only comes to town once a year. The Bible lays out a model for how to handle offenses in a way that glorifies God, especially in the story of John the Baptis…

Some members of our church and myself had a great meeting at the Oklahoma Capitol recently. I had been asked to speak there that night and felt that God had impressed upon me a special message that I would like to share to you all. I think anytime there is a new year there can be a question of if God has any words or messages to say about the upcom…

My message is simple: no strife. Zero. None. Strife divides us. It has a way of creating open doors for the devil to come in and fulfill his mission of killing, stealing, and destroying. There can be a mindset of immaturity that invades us and tries to get us to pin all our problems on another person. But often, it is us who is in need of prayer. W…

I would like to follow up on my last message tonight with a discussion of a Christian's role of generosity in relation to their treasures - specifically, I would like to talk about a biblical basis for tithing. I have gathered five lessons on tithing to share with you that I hope will bring you much insight. Tithing is not fundraising, it is instea…

I want to talk about three words: time, talents, and treasures. What do these three words have to do with your life? Your giving will always come from one of these three categories. It can be giving of your time, abilities, or wealth. John 3:16 is the most popular verse in the Bible, and it mentions a very impactful action of giving linked to God's…

I want to talk to you on a habit that I want you to develop in the coming year. It is the habit of rest. You see, if you don't have a habit of rest, you're going to have a habit of worry. Worry can indeed be a habit, resulting in nervous energy in us and forcing us to believe something bad is around the corner. One thing we know about Jesus and his…

I'd like to speak to you about generosity and its role in being the seed that we sow and later reap the results of. We reap in proportion to what we sow, and we reap what we sow: it is important we be sowing the right things and in the amounts we will be satisfied with when they come back to us. It is essential to be spirit-led in your generosity. …

Deuteronomy 28:1-8: This is my prayer for a new year, for myself and for you. This book was written as a reciting of the law for the nation of Israel, to remember God's laws and ways of blessing them. God promised Israel that they would be blessed more than any of the nations of the world, and from the various accounts in the Bible we know this was…

Going into a new year it is essential to have the proper mentality about your prayer life. I sincerely believe that one of the biggest improvements you can make to your prayer life is the addition of writing down your requests. Jesus warned many times in the gospel against letting our prayers become vain repetition. I believe that the risk of not w…

The Bible teaches that "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine." In this age where there are so many things that can crush the spirit, it is important to maintain a spiritually merry heart. God is a God of encouragement to the believer and does not wish that we be despondent or pressed down. It is for this reason that God wishes us to proclaim th…

There have been many times when the Lord made clear to me the things that would happen in the year ahead. While he does not always act on a timescale the human mind can comprehend, I can often look back after a year and realize what God did for me. It is important to remember that this progress from God is often incremental, and we must keep faith …

Wednesday night I felt called by God to do a message on words. I dug on my computer that night and managed to find a sermon outline I had made in 2006. I had so many positive comments in response to this message, and I felt it would be good to review this message as a complete church family today. The simple fact is that changing your words you spe…

I would like to share out of the book of Proverbs 18:21. It says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." Whether you realize it or not, you got saved because of the power of words. The tongue produces not only words, but also makes an impact and brings about what we speak. Some people may…

The shepherds are a central element of the Christmas story. They came from the fields hoping to see Christ through earnest desire of seeking God, and were rewarded for their effort. But in addition to coming and seeing, they went out and told others about what they said seen, proclaiming Christ. The believer should desire to be like a shepherd in t…

It is important to not let the familiar Christmas story become dull to one and fail to hear the great insights contained. Tonight, I'd like to talk over some points of interest and obtain biblical truths from the iconic moments known by billions around the world. In this story we observe a variety of attributes of God displayed, his providence in o…

In the Christmas story, one of the most memorable and iconic group of individuals are the wise men. Despite not living among the people of God or following the law, they were led out of their own scholarly studies of the stars toward the Christ. From the moment Jesus came to this earth, it was obvious that he came to Jews and Gentiles alike. A trem…

I want to speak about an attitude adjustment. I think all of us know what that term means: it refers to the need to adjust one's outlook or response toward various life events. Just as one can go to a chiropractor and have their back adjusted, it is possible to receive an attitude adjustment from the right source. We are in the holiday season, and …

I would like to go through the Christmas story with you. It is important to renew in our minds the original account and remember the tremendous meaning in God sending his son to the world. The biblical account of the birth of Christ is full of tremendous stories of God's orchestration of events to fulfill prophecy and protect Christ from the hands …

The Bible teaches that the nation of Israel has and will play a pivotal role in many of the most significant events that God will bring about. As God's people, there has been no shortage of enemies which have arisen against Israel over the years. It is my belief that a Christian should stand with Israel, God's people, following the biblical princip…

Recent events have brought into the public consciousness the discussion of who has the right to the land of Israel. The answer, in fact, can be found in the Bible, in God's original promises to Abraham. God stated that Abraham's descendants would inherit the land, and we see through the kingdom of Israel that followed that God fulfilled those promi…

The title of my message is very simple. Do we want a supernatural church, or a superficial church? Do we go after the gold, or after wood, hay, and stubble? There is a temptation for the Christian church to pursue all that is fleeting, the distractions of this world. Scripture teaches that we must not only avoid these superficialities, but yearn fo…

I want to talk to you about the importance of staying focused. There's a lot of things out there that can be distractions to us and pull us in a variety of directions. One time I was in prayer during a period of discouragement in my life. I felt I heard the Lord say to me, "Distracted people are discouraged people." I felt I was being reminded by G…
