RESOURCES FOR PASTORS & LEADERS

The Linchpin of Real Forgiveness

“May the LORD judge between you and me, and may the LORD avenge me on you; but my hand shall not be against you” (1 Samuel 24:12 NASB). Everyone gets hurt. Therefore, everyone must decide how they will respond when they get hurt. And you really have only one choice:...

Mighty Men with Alternate Views

The Mighty Men Who Have a Completely Alternate View and Are Greatly Used by God It is easy to predict what most men think and how they will respond in almost any circumstance. Born separated from God, we all live life on our own. We trust in ourselves, think for...

Becoming a MORE POWERFUL Man

One of the great hopes of all our lives as followers of Christ is that we can become MORE: more useful, more loving, more gracious, more generous, more like Jesus, a better witness, etc. Apollos was such a man. We only have five verses in the whole Bible that describe...

Integrity

Integrity is moral soundness. I have a steel girder in my office that I look at often. It has a slight imperfection—like someone bumped their head on it—but the massive girder is solid and has been standing for over 25 years. Spiritual and moral integrity does not...

Overcoming Leadership Insecurity

Every great leader is a humble servant, but also a strong, confident leader. But this strange mixture of humble confidence comes from a source that is deeper than most realize. One of the great leadership passages in the Bible is the historical account of Jesus...

The-God-Behind-Everything

All of God’s great men and women have seen this world properly. Lifted above the tiny island of Self, they are blessed to breathe the rare air of self-forgetfulness as their hearts are consumed with God. C. S. Lewis describes this humility as “not thinking less of...

The Anatomy of Harbored Sin

I have watched many people, often professing believers, who have entered into serious sin—often sexual sins you thought they would never commit. How does this happen? There is a pattern. King David shows us this pattern in Psalm 36: Transgression speaks [like an...

Knowing God

“God is easy to live with,” Tozer said, and he’s right. The most amazing attribute of God to me is His willingness to be understood, His self-disclosure. He is waiting to be known. If you don’t want a relationship with someone, you go dark. You are unwilling to be...

Making Your Needs Known

It’s one of the clearest signs of spiritual strength. If we are going to be healthy and promote a healthy spiritual community/family, we need to let people know how we’re doing. This should be done appropriately and for the right purpose. But many don’t ever open up....
