I never knew what a "godly person" looked like. Now I want to become one. More than anything. In my early radio career I was once engineering a live talk show. The host was taking live calls. One woman said, “You sound like a man of God.” My friend, the host, suddenly became very solemn. During the commercial break he said to me,”Did you hear what she said? She called me...

Elisha had a defining moment with Elijah when Elijah asked him to leave his life as a farmer and to follow him. We all have defining moments in our lives.

False prophets tried to lie to Israel about the coming judgment upon their nation. Ezekiel the prophet was trying to help them with their blind spots by telling them truth.

KINGS: A king provides protection. The stories of Moses, Melchizedek and Uzziah demonstrate these three roles. Christ is prophet, priest and King to every believer. We have great privilege...

The book of Haggai has much to say about God's values and our response to His will. The prophet explores how to have successful marriages, how to invest our money and how to live pure lives in a secular society.
The book of Jonah may be considered a children's Bible story, but it is full of grown up lessons. This three-week series is about the prophet Jonah who is instructed by God to call to repentance the evil citizens of Nineveh. God?s call to Jonah is similar to our admonition to impact the world for Christ.

Malachi, the final Old Testament prophet, teaches His people how to prepare their hearts for the coming Messiah. We can learn how to prepare our hearts for Christ's second coming as well.
