Building People of Substance for Works of Power For several years now, I have been a fairly consistent bicycle rider. In Arizona, that means drinking lots of water. You need a good water bottle. Most are some sort of plastic which often makes the water taste just a little off. Exposed to the sun, that … Continue reading Out of the Abundance of the Heart: Vessels of Honor
15 “And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding. ( Jeremiah 3:15 NKJV) As I was prepping for today’s service, I got to thinking about all the hours of study and prayer that go into doing the job properly. By conservative estimate, I have preached … Continue reading Sunday Supernaturally: Come and Get It!
Building People of Substance for Works of Power I remember a brisk but sunny morning back in 1981. Several of us were out on the street witnessing to people in a very rough neighborhood of dive bars and brothels. Staggering across the road came a very intoxicated Native American gentleman. Without a moment’s hesitation, my … Continue reading Out of the Abundance of the Heart: The Power of Miracles
Happy Sunday! I always feel as if the first Sunday in December begins the "Christmas Season." I used to be a Scrooge about the whole thing, but a few years ago I felt impressed to get myself in a frame of mind to take advantage of the opportunities Christmas provides. I began by making up … Continue reading Church Supernaturally: Christmas Spirit

For if I pray in tongues, my spirit is praying, but I don't understand what I am saying. Well then, what shall I do? I will pray in the spirit, and I will also pray in words I understand. I will sing in the spirit, and I will also sing in words I understand. (1 … Continue reading Sing With the Spirit
Church is an "us" Thing. For years, I have heard folks say variations on this theme, “I have a relationship with God. It is private and personal. I don’t need to go to church.” Assuming these individuals are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, that they have been born of the Spirit (John 3:6), then … Continue reading Out of the Abundance of the Heart

It's just part of our nature. When we let patterns continue without regard to their meaning, we have vain … Continue reading Avoiding Vain Repetition
I started using turmeric and drinking turmeric tea. Why? I read an article that said it had great benefits. It helps your heart, decreases inflammation of joints, soothes the digestive tract, and improves circulation. Why not? We all buy into all kinds of claims about all kinds of stuff. So, what if you could … Continue reading Free Miracle Product. Use it.
These people are not drunk, as some of you are assuming. Nine o'clock in the morning is much too early for that. No, what you see was predicted long ago by the prophet Joel: (Acts 2:15-16 NLT) Sunday we had several visitors. That's a big deal for a small church in Arizona in June. As … Continue reading Pressing Through Pride
