Groundhog Day … Again

August 26th, 2009 · No Comments

Last week we talked about how being born again into life requires dying first; crucifying the old man whose behavior leads us into death. We also figured out how we crucify the old man – we kill his deeds, the behavior that leads us to death instead of life. Remember the old joke: “A man […]

The Five Covenants of God

July 7th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Tithing still remains a controversial issue in the church, even though I straightened everything out two weeks ago. Boy, I wish more people would read this letter. Amidst the many comments I received from “Forget About Tithing” was one from T___. “… I did read what you said about tithing but it has been pounded […]

Light Shines Better in the Dark

June 9th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Thriving in Tough Times Part 10 “For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way the rich man will fade away even while he goes about his business.” (James 1:11) There’s nothing pleasant about tough times. Employment is better than unemployment. […]

Thriving in Tough Times Part 7

May 5th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Tempering Your Faith in World Systems “What he trusts in is fragile; what he relies on is a spider’s web.” (Job 8:14) I was eating lunch at a restaurant in Orlando one summer day a few years back when a thunderstorm knocked out the electricity. Power outages from lightning aren’t uncommon in the Southeast in […]

How to Walk on Water

March 6th, 2009 · 4 Comments

“‘Lord, if it’s you,’ Peter replied, ‘Tell me to come to you on the water.’ ‘Come,’ he said.” (Matthew 14:28-29) You’ve got to admit, walking on water is a pretty neat trick. Only two people in history are reported to have done it and one of them was the Son of God. Peter, Jesus’ disciple, […]

“Would You Condemn Me to Justify Yourself?”

January 13th, 2009 · 1 Comment

“‘Would you discredit my justice?  Would you condemn me to justify yourself.’” (Job 40:8) I received a sad comment this weekend. It was a response to a Purpose Weekly letter “Has God Forsaken You?” You can read the letter and the comment (feel free to comment yourself) at: http://www.gotpotential.org/gods-purpose/has-god-forsaken-you. Here’s the comment from John: Bull____. […]

I Will Lift Up My Eyes to the Hills

January 13th, 2009 · 2 Comments

“Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” (Psalm 90:2) I took advantage of the relative quiet over the last two weeks of holiday to finish pre-press edits for the North American edition of Unlocking the Bible by David Pawson. It’s a […]

Paving the Road to Hell

December 16th, 2008 · No Comments

“What good is It, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such a faith save him? (James 2:14) “What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.’ “‘I will not,’ […]

Responding to God

October 16th, 2008 · No Comments

“But someone will say, ‘You have faith; I have deeds.’ Show me your faith without deeds, and I’ll show you my faith by what I do.” (James 2:18) Last week we talked about responding to God. Really that’s all we can do. We can’t act on God first, that He may respond to us. He […]

Voices Part III, Responding to God’s Voice

October 10th, 2008 · No Comments

But acting on God so He will react isn’t the nature of our relationship with Him as He intends it. It’s not up to us to be proactive with God. He spoke the universe into existence. He knew you and purposed your life before the sun first shed its light on this planet. He knows you and your situation right now; He knows what situation you’ll be in tomorrow. God is the proactive One. He acts on the universe and it responds. He acts on you and for you; it’s up to you to respond.

THE SHACK, PART II

August 31st, 2008 · 2 Comments

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I […]

Courage

May 5th, 2008 · No Comments

Purpose Vol. 2 Issue 16 April 17, 2008 The Weekly Newsletter of True Potential Publishing Courage Fear is a part of life. I don’t believe people who say they’re not afraid of anything. Everybody’s afraid of something. I used to be afraid of eighth graders. They terrified me, bullied me, threatened me and laughed at […]
