Every fighter knows that the battle begins long before entering the ring. We evaluate our relationship to God, our marriage and our children. We must train our children to grow up godly and leave successfully. Families battle for attention, time and love. Preached at Fellowship Church, www.creativepastors.com. Used by permission.

Topic: Sexual Immorality
We learn from the life of the patriarch Jacob that God's will has a what and a when -- and both are important. We should never do the wrong thing to accomplish the right thing. Miracles can be messy, but we can make our lives easier by submitting now rather than later.

Topic: Process of Spiritual Growth
God allows us to see flaws in Bible characters to help us identify with them and learn from their poor choices. Abram lied, Sarai was impatient . Their mistakes almost cost them their lives. We must learn how to recover from wrong turns by being teachable, patient and wise. Preached at Hope Fellowship Church. Used by permission.

On more than one occasion, I’ve sat with people and listened as they described in detail how their lives are falling apart around them. As the tragedies unfold, I start to get depressed because honestly, I don’t see a way out. The stories typically end with them asking me, “So—what should I do now?” Then comes an awkward silence, while inside I’m thinking, I have no idea!...
