Today, God is asking the same question of us: “What is in your hand?” It could be a pen, cooking utensil, computer, ball, phone, certificate, diploma, or small plot of land. We should not dismiss what we have, no matter how small or unworthy it may seem. God is ready to use it to fulfill God’s purpose in our lives.   Read More

Reading: Acts 4 Be BoldThe book of Acts challenges and burdens me – in a stay awake at night kind of way.Let me tell you about Pat.

Imagine... Jesus has defeated death on the cross, has risen from the dead, has spent 40 days with you teaching you and giving instructions on how to be His witnesses to the world, and then He ascends into heaven before your very eyes.

The Bible tells us that Jesus was a man of sorrows, acquainted with the deepest grief (see Isaiah 53:3). He knew what it was to be in pain. He knew what it was to suffer. The beautiful thing about Jesus is that, though He suffered more than any of us can think or imagine, He does not belittle our pain or our suffering.  Read More

Jesus, I can imagine, didn’t change His tone, didn’t put on a ‘prayer voice’ nor did He go on and on. He simply and honestly – and with great vulnerability – pleads with the Father  Read More
