The truth about temptation is that it's not a sin to be tempted, only to give in. Don't blame God, others or the bait. When tempted run, don't try to resist. And when you do fall prey to temptation, remember that failure isn't final. Preached at North Coast Church. Used by permission.

What motivated the early church to press on under threat of rejection, persecution, and death? It’s the same thing we need to overcome our fear of sharing the gospel with our neighbors—gospel courage. I have a dear friend who has a beautiful wife, one very precocious little girl, and one little boy who’s the mellowest kid I’ve ever seen in my life. My friend loves his...

Topic: Spiritual Warfare
Does the news overwhelm you? Every day mass murders leave us reeling; struggling to make sense of such tragedies. Where the Bible may not tell us the why of the tragedies, it is quick to tell us who. Our fight is not against people on earth but against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness, against the spiritual powers of evil in the...

Satan caused Eve to doubt God's goodness and to twist His words. In doing so, we also are tripped up by his lies and doubts. Remember, your sin will find you out. You will reap what you sow. Satan will cause you doubt your own character . God's Word, His lovingkindness and holiness will keep you from stumbling. Preached at Chase Oaks Church. Used by permission.

Jesus said, “For false christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect – if that were possible.

Mass shootings. Violence. Hate. Max Lucado writes, "We seem to lurch from tragedy to tragedy, shooting to shooting, bombing to bombing. The kids didn’t deserve such a death. Their parents don’t deserve such grief. And we received an all too common reminder: life isn’t fair. When did you learn those words? It’s not fair. What deed exposed you to the imbalanced scales of...

Dear the many who’ve asked me to address the issue of civil disobedience, Once upon a time I walked the picket line holding a poster of a bloody, “fetus” that had been killed by an abortionist. I wanted to carry the picture poster of the little girl who was floating inside mommy’s womb, sucking on her finger. But they gave me the shocking one. They told me to stand by...
