Where World Change Really Begins
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. -
In recent years, I’ve noticed a big increase in people’s interest in their ancestral roots. I’m about half afraid to do that myself, because I’m not sure about what I’d find! But there’s one thing I do know about my family history: I’m descended from a crooked farmer and a drunken sailor.
The crooked farmer I’m talking about is Adam and the drunken sailor is Noah. And every single person in history has descended from these two men. This is the root cause of our problems in our homes, our communities, and our cities across the globe… the problem of sin.
But God has provided us with a solution to this problem – a way to eradicate sin at its root and experience regeneration by His power. That solution is Jesus Christ. By faith in His death and resurrection, we’re saved from the penalty of sin as well as set free from the power of sin.
The answer to the problem of sin is Jesus. Through Him, God can bring healing to our broken world. But in order for that to happen, we must have faith in Him. Trust Jesus and let Him transform the world… beginning with you!
BRING ABOUT CHANGE IN THE WORLD BY TRUSTING JESUS AND LETTING HIM TRANSFORM YOU FIRST.

Share the life-giving news of Christ and help set the captives free!
It’s amazing to me how many people today marry and divorce for such trivial reasons.
Men need community with other men.
Sadly, many people are more concerned with the decisions being made in Washington than they are with what's going on in their own home.
In a nation of workaholics, when it comes to faith, many of us are spectators rather than soldiers.
I love learning about some of the great heroes of the church and their attitudes in the face of so much hardship.
Follow Christ’s example of giving your anger to God and live in freedom from resentment and bitternes
If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink (Rom. 12:20). Loving others isn't complicated. It's simply going above and beyond, by the power of the Spirit, in treating others how you'd like to be treated, no matter how they treat you.
We love others well not by having every answer, but by stepping into their lives and bearing their burdens.
This is not our world; this is not our time; this is God’s Kingdom.
Do whatever you do to the utmost, using the gifts God has given you to make an impact for His name!
If we’re going to have unity in the church, we have to stay on mission
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9). Welcome new and exciting ideas in your church and you'll help spread the life-transforming truth of the Bible to as many people as possible!
Choose life, even in the toughest circumstances.
People today are sick from hating themselves. And no amount of thinking positively can fix that. So how can we cure this sickness?
The Scriptures were designed for the real purpose of us being able to immerse ourselves into them.
On our own, our spiritual currency is worthless.
The Gospel is Jesus Christ.
When we give our lives to Christ, we live for heavenly purposes.
Truth is truth no matter what we think or how we feel about it.
Many churches are becoming indifferent toward issues like premarital sex, abortion, and the exclusiveness of Christ.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil (2 Cor. 5:10). Those people who are faithful to the Lord Jesus today and until they meet Him face to face will build a greater capacity to receive His rewards.
Stuff can’t make you happy, but heavenly treasures will give you everlasting joy.
A conscience can only utilize the light that it’s been given.
One excuse I constantly hear for not sharing the Gospel is that people don’t know what to say.
Your life has meaning and purpose.
"Greet one another with a holy kiss."
The evidence that Jesus Christ is alive is indeed compelling!
When you’re not walking in the Spirit, you can’t receive everything God wants to give you!
You can be free of the power and the dominion of sin in your life!
In Christ, you have the power to overcome because He has already overcome.
Many times in our lives, the very things we fear are acts of God Himself.
Fear is as pervasive in our culture as breathing.
Real and lasting comfort from pain isn’t found by just numbing what hurts.
Can love really last a lifetime? The answer is yes… because God created it that way!
The home is a place where lessons should be taught, love given and received, and Jesus exalted.
The key to overcoming stress is to walk humbly with God every day.
When Christ comes into your life, it’s a life-changing experience.
Live life by the Spirit by surrendering control and living under the power of God.
Maybe today, there’s something in your life that’s keeping you from living full-on for Jesus Christ.
The deepest needs of your life aren’t going to be met by the pursuit of wealth.
Fill your bucket with things that matter, not things that weigh you down...
Inspire confidence from others by admitting your shortcomings and showing others you can be trusted to be truthful.
Practice faithfulness in the small things today for the big things tomorrow!
God is making us who have faith in Christ into the likeness of His Son, Jesus.
Honoring our mothers and fathers goes beyond childhood.
We have to communicate God’s love and acceptance to our children so they have a right picture of their Heavenly Father.
The people of the church are the house of God.
We must communicate the right idea of God from the Word of God… no compromises!
If you’re in Christ, you’ll never experience God’s wrath.
Perhaps you’ve noticed as you’ve looked at the Bible that within its pages, there’s never once an argument for the existence of God.
Never forget your true north…it’s the very character of Christ Himself.
As you step into 2016 this week, put your focus on one thing you want to do well in the coming year. Resolve to make a deep impact in one place.
God has given each of us a certain number of minutes with which we’re able to make an impact in the world.
The message of Christmas is the message of the cradle, the cross, and the crown. The cradle because God became a man in Christ. But the wood of the cradle touches the wood of the cross, where that man died for the forgiveness of our sins.
In Christ, you can overcome the darkness and have victory over sin and death.
The Scripture tells us that God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.
These humble, lowly men had jobs that kept them away from their families, and were essentially nomadic as they followed their flocks around day and night. It was a lonely, poor life… a humble audience for the very first Christmas carol ever sung.
We have no hope of escaping death on our own.
I appeal to you, brothers... that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you (1 Cor. 1:10). I think we can safely say Black Friday is usually not marked by a spirit of Christian unity, even though it’s supposed to kick off the Christmas season.
When it comes to sharing their testimonies of faith, many Christians are sinfully silent. But a testimony of the thankfulness you have for what Christ has done for you is the most powerful evangelism tool you have.
Wisdom without God is temporal. But godly wisdom informs us for this life and the life to come.
Several years ago, the Lord really impressed upon me that I was too consumed with ministry. Like any job, ministry can become such a part of your life that it starts to become and idol. And chief among the things that were being sacrificed to that idol was my marriage.
Love one another with kindness and compassion.
Any chance you had of getting to heaven on your own was destroyed by sin. But Christ destroyed the power of sin on the cross to give you eternal life if you’ll only trust in Him.
What do you think is the one thing that really brings about joy and passion in our lives?
Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God (1 John 4:1). With such a powerful enemy against us, how do we have any hope of victory in spiritual warfare?
Desires are normal. Search God’s Word and discover what glorifies Him. Understand He’s created you with desires
The devil never gives up territory without a fight.
Don’t let the sovereignty of God be an excuse for passiveness.
Be obedient to the ministry where God has called you, and trust in Him to bring people to Christ, whether it be many or few.
