I Will Save Your Children

I am walking up to a door with Ali and Haley, two very excited girls, all dressed up in their prettiest pink outfits, hoping to please their mommy, whom they haven’t seen in several months. The door opens and I see an ashen skeleton; behind her are a few men obviously as strung out as […]

Come Home

Preparing this message was challenging.  I found myself in prayer – earnest prayer – and bombarded with doubts every line of it…. How can I possibly summarize what is impossible to define? How can one hour do justice to Your immeasurable love, God? Did I hear You? Do you really want me to share this […]

Spirit of Adoption

Romans 8:14-17: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by Whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are […]

A Father’s Compassion

Psalm 103:8-14: The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, […]

Childlike Dependence

Romans 8:14-17: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by Whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are […]

A Deeper Bond

We read in the New Testament that the Apostle Paul took this vow to Jesus because he found in Jesus the freedom and acceptance he had searched for his whole life. Paul loved Jesus supremely! It was love that compelled him to surrender everything – to voluntarily become Christ’s slave. Jesus held first place in […]

A Willing Slave

Galatians 4:5-7: But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your […]

Children of God

John 1:12-13: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.                    You are God’s own. Jesus purchased […]

Do You Trust Me?

You cannot surrender to Jesus until you know beyond all shadow of doubt He has your best interests at heart. My colleague, Erica – who serves the children in Northern Uganda, invited a group of teenagers for a discipleship class. She asked them all, “Do you trust me?” They all smiled and said, “Yes!” She […]

Infinite Worth

You have infinite worth…. if you doubt, look to the cross. The Scripture says, “Scarcely for a righteous man would one die, But God demonstrated His love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for the ungodly (Romans 5:6-8)….Greater love has no man than this, that He lay down His life […]
