“CHECED”

“CHECED”

Gratitude is one of the most foundational components of authentic Christianity. It is the humility that recognizes that what God has done for us is undeserved. It gladly acknowledges, with an open heart and mouth, that everything we’ve received is from God. I have often said that I can tell you how proud a man is by how much or little he prays. But I can also tell you how proud a man is by how quickly or slowly he gives thanks—to others and, most importantly, to God.

Today’s Great Awakening

We are living, right now, in a Great Awakening. All the signs are there—churches full of revived Christ-followers who will go wherever He leads, even unto death; believers who love each other deeply and live in unity; bold sharing of the gospel. And, as a result, millions coming to faith in Jesus!

Choosing Holiness

Choosing Holiness

To be holy is to be like God Himself—different from the sinful parts of the world; sanctified, our body and soul cleansed from the ever-present defilement of sin.

All of us face some measure of suffering in this life. It could be a physical challenge, a hard ministry task, an overwhelming and perplexing difficulty, a persecution for our faith, a deep burden, or simply the rigors of living a life of determined godliness. For some, this suffering is more intense. Paul was one of those who faced grave suffering in order to complete the task of the gospel that was entrusted to him. Yet, he was able to face it with courage and even joy. How?

Unceasing Praise

“From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the LORD is to be praised” (Psalm 113:3 NASB). A dear friend of mine, Stottler Starr, who was greatly used of God, recently died of cancer. The last year of his life was a time of great suffering, yet he seemed...

A Leader’s Prayer

A Leader’s Prayer

Since my position announces, “Imitate me as I imitate Christ,” I’m definitely going to need Your help, Lord Jesus. In order to safeguard my life message, to live a life worthy of the calling I’ve received:
I choose to reject pride and embrace humility. My ministry must never become about me, or about my brand, or about my own success. This week:
Did I treat anyone with arrogance or condescension?
Who did I elevate and empower instead of myself?
In my conversations, did I talk more or listen more?
