What’s Wrong with Grownups?

When the 10-year-olds in Mrs. Imogene Frost’s class at the Brookside, N.J. Community Sunday School expressed their views of “What’s wrong with grownups?” they came up with these complaints: Grownups make promises, then they forget all about them, or else they say it wasn’t really a promise, just a maybe. Grownups don’t do the things…

Winning the Ultimate Battleground

Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, “All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing.” Edison replied very confidently, “Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We know that there are…

Handling a Broken Heart 

Consider the story of the Death March by Alvie Robbins in, Ghost Soldiers: The Forgotten Epic Story of World War II’s Most Dramatic Mission. During the Second World War, the US Army was forced to retreat from the Philippines. Some of their soldiers were left behind, and became prisoners of the Japanese. The men called themselves…

trap of pain

The Trap of Pain

Life is filled with both blessings and pain. You only need to turn on the nightly news to hear about vicious homicides, terrible accidents, traumatic births, handicaps, terminal illness, divorce, and death.  Everyone has pain and unless we deal with it properly, we can get caught in the trap of pain and compromise our mental,…

The Beauty of Spiritual Language | Part 1

The Bible tells us that the enemy comes as an imposter and seeks to discredit the things of God. That is why we are warned that, “Satan masquerades as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14). One of the ways he does this is by tainting rich and life-giving aspects of our relationship with the…

God who provides

The God of Provision

Provision is something that many of us pray about regularly, and the Lord’s prayer encourages us to shamelessly pray for provision. In fact, the whole middle of the Lord’s prayer is filled with petitions and requests for spiritual and practical needs. Jesus told His disciples to pray in this manner…. “Give us this day our…

dealing with disappointment

Dealing with Disappointment

The Lord’s Prayer is filled with asking. It starts and ends with praise, and is filled with requests. The first three asks are directed to God (Matthew 6:9-10): His name, kingdom, and will; and the last three toward human needs (:11-13): physical, relational, and spiritual. It’s encouraging that this model prayer embraces both our physical…

teach us to pray

Teach Us to Pray

Prayer is the primary way God releases His power through His people. Does this statement strike you? Prayer is one of those topics that elicits more thoughts of failure than excitement. The disciples were excited to pray. They observed Jesus praying to the Father and said, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1). We don’t…
