GOD SPACE

“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed” Mark 1:35 A few years ago, I was on vacation at a resort. Every morning I would wake up and go eat breakfast and immediately hit the beach. I’d spend the day swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, shooting hoops, and exploring nature. Each day was packed full of events that by the end of it, I was exhausted and ready for bed. As the trip carried on, I realized that although I was in paradise enjoying[…]

COMEBACK STORY

“So God Sent back the same man his people had previously rejected…” Acts 7:35a Rocky Bleier was living the dream.  The Notre Dame football team he played for had just won the National Championship and he was drafted by his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers.  However, after finishing his rookie season with the Steelers in 1964, he was drafted again, only this time into the U.S. Army. On August 20th, 1969, he was on patrol with his platoon when they were attacked.  Rocky was shot in the leg.  While on the ground from the gunshot wound, a grenade went off next to[…]

POWER TO FORGIVE

He fell to his knees, shouting, “Lord, don’t charge them with this sin!” And with that, he died. Acts 7:60  Forgiveness is given to those least deserving, which is what can make it so hard. It’s not easy to forgive, especially the one who isn’t seeking or asking for forgiveness. When someone isn’t sorrowful for what they have done, it makes it so much harder to forgive that person, especially when it’s personal. When you’ve been personally wronged, mistreated, or misrepresented it makes forgiveness a lot more difficult. As Stephen was being stoned by his accusers, his last words were,[…]

THE LIGHT

“At this point everyone in the high council stared at Stephen, because his face became as bright as an angel’s.”  Acts 6:15  Electric light is one of the all-time greatest inventions, but who does the credit actually go to; Benjamin Franklin or Thomas Edison? Certainly, Thomas Edison could not have invented the light bulb had it not been for Ben Franklin’s discovery of the fact that electrical power could be transferred through current. Regardless of who should get the credit, one thing is for sure, light has been a game changer. Can you imagine what your life would be like[…]

ASTOUNDED

 “When they realized he was the lame beggar they had seen so often at the Beautiful Gate, they were absolutely astounded!” Acts 3:10  The key to modern day marketing is found in the testimonials. From late night infomercials, to emails and website pop-ups, marketers are trying to get us to buy their product or service. After they go through the process of showing us the product, they want to seal the deal in our mind by using testimonies from “people just like you and me.” Whether the person has lost 50 pounds in 3 months or grown all their hair[…]

MIGHTY WIND OF CHANGE

 “Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting.” Acts 2:2   In Exodus 14 terror gripped the hearts of the Hebrews as Pharaoh and the whole Egyptian army bore down on them. The Israelites had nowhere to go so they cried out to Moses, who cried out to the Lord. God told Moses to stretch out his staff over the waters and then God sent a mighty wind to blow a great divide in the middle of the sea. As the waters towered on the left[…]

THE TRUE POWER SOURCE

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8   Air-conditioning did not make its way into homes for the most part until the 1960′s and 1970′s. But without easy access to electricity the discovery of A/C would have been impossible. Many of the major comforts we enjoy today were only made possible as a result of not only the discovery of electricity but the understanding of how to distribute it in[…]

RE-CALLED

“Then Jesus told him, “Follow me.” John 21:19b  “Follow Me!” The first time Peter every heard those words uttered from the mouth of Jesus was the day He first meet Him. As a fisherman by trade Peter I’m sure had plans for his fishing business. He was obviously good at it as fishing had become a way of life for Peter. It’s probably all Peter knew how to do and was well within his comfort zone. All of that changed however that day he met Jesus. Having never met him before, Jesus approached Peter and asked to borrow His boat so[…]

HE CAME BACK

“Then Jesus told him, ‘You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me’.” John 20:29  It’s interesting how people can permanently label you just simply based on a past failure or mistake. Such is the case with Thomas, as many in the church world today still refer to him as “Doubting Thomas.” Yes, Thomas did doubt, and it would have been better if he, by the testimony of others, had just believed. But the good news is he became a very strong believer. And that was made possible all because Jesus Himself made a special[…]

MERCY AND RESTORATION

You have done many good things for me, Lord, just as you promised. Psalm 119:65  In 2 Samuel 11-12, we see that David committed the two “biggies.” Not only did he commit adultery, which is pretty bad, but he also committed murder. According to the Levitical Law, David should have been drug out to the center of the city and stoned to death. There was no ambiguity in the law when it talked about an “eye for an eye.” And, when David finally did repent for these heinous sins, it wasn’t like he did it on his own. No, he got[…]
