I used to look away during gore and violence in movies a lot more than I do now. There’s this crazy scene in The Patriot with Mel Gibson that a canon ball takes a guy’s head off. I even rewound it several times just to see it again. In Saving Private Ryan this guy gets his arm blown off and bends over and picks it up and walks off with it. How is it that that doesn’t make me sick? Because I’ve watched so much blood and gore over the…read more

Bread- Matthew 6:11 “Give us today our daily bread” The truth is that this fourth petition almost feels like we’ve moved from the godly to the daily and mundane. Not so- we humans are material creatures and cannot enter into and enjoy fulfillment of the first three petitions without bread. Bread is the staple of life and represents all our bodily needs. “The Father’s will is that his name be made manifest to flesh and blood men and women, not just to angels.

Vanity- Since we have begun to talk about intercession, let’s specifically spend some time in how to pray for unsaved people. 2 Corinthians 4:4 says, “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” What this means is that the enemy has put a veil, or a smokescreen, around the minds of those that haven’t decided to follow Christ. They don’t understand what this “Jesus” thing is…read more

Matthew 6:10 “Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” The older I get the more I want to pray the third petition of the Lord’s Prayer. There are two reasons for this. First of all, the older I get the more I realize I do not know how to make life work. There was a time when I thought I did know. But the world is becoming increasingly complex. I am becoming more aware of the complex interplay between the mind and the ear and the…read more
