Motivated by God’s Will

I believe that the fountain of right and wrong, both in the area of decision and action, is motivation. Motivation has in it a root word, motive. And the word has come to have a largely negative connotation. But we all have motives. They rest quietly behind every decision and action we make. The question

The Light of Christmas

Isaiah 9:6&7- For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Of the increase of [His] government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of

The Power of One

The 2000 Presidential election was one of the most contentious in American history.  George Bush narrowly edged out the incumbent Vice-President, Al Gore, by the smallest of margins. In fact, the race was simply too close to call on election night and was eventually decided by the US Supreme Court in a 5 to 4

Building Leaders, Building Nations

There is something outside of you calling out to something inside of you to arise to the challenges of the day! When I look around and see the condition of our nation, our polarized politics, fragile economics and a culture that is becoming increasingly hostile to our Christian faith, I feel something pulling me, something

Running With Champions

The Olympics are the most celebrated games of history. Dating from the 700’s BC, some of the earliest events were the foot races. They were generally a 200 yard dash around the stadium. The runner would fix his eyes on a square pillar which became his mark or goal and would run with all of

Experiencing a Move of God

We often talk about wanting to experience a “move of God”. It is a phrase that is part of the religious language we speak as Christians. As individuals, churches and ministries, we pray for it, seek it and long for it to come. Just knowing that God is aware of our needs and desires to

The Beauty of Holiness

Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness, Bow down before Him, His glory proclaim; Gold of obedience and incense of lowliness, Bring and adore Him—the Lord is His Name.   These were the words of songwriter, John Monsell, who was an Anglican Priest and Vicar (Pastor) of several churches in England in the 1850s

What Is Your Motive?

I believe that most people today would say that the fountain of right and wrong, both in the area of decision and action, is motivation. Motivation has in it a root word, motive. And the word has come to have a largely negative connotation. But we all have motives. They rest quietly behind every decision

God’s Plan for Developing Leaders

I once read something that Ruth Barton said about developing leaders. She said, and I’m paraphrasing,  “We do a great disservice to young leaders when we teach them, first, what they can accomplish before we teach them what manner of people they should become.” And I believe this is true from the classroom to the

The River of God

One of the most beautiful places in America is an amazing natural spring in North Central Arkansas. It is more than a small spring bubbling up out of the ground, the Ozarks Mountains of Arkansas and Missouri have lots of those, but this one is special. The name of the spring gives a bit of
