What’s in a Name?

Acts 19:13 Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. 15 One day … Continue reading

What Are They Saying About You?

I like people, and I get to meet and interact with lots and lots of people, in many different spheres. Often, I’ll meet someone and they’ll be like “oh yeah, I’ve heard about you!” And, my next question is always, “Really? What did you hear??” Because I really want to know!!  It’s so interesting to … Continue reading

It’s GOOD News!

It’s funny. Sometimes when we are on the MSU campus giving out free water in the summer or the Finals Kits as a part of I Love My City in the Spring, people always seem to be hesitant and sometimes ask, “So, what’s the catch?”. A lot of times, groups/organizations/business give out “free” stuff to … Continue reading

Who Made YOU God?

It’s exciting to hear about people getting their relationships cleaned up after me sharing about Jesus’ teaching on a life of forgiveness (if you didn’t hear it, I recommend you listen to it! Here’s the link). To have our heart right with others is to have our heart in the right place with God! 🙂 … Continue reading

Fighting the good fight

“It’s only a good fight if you win!” Psalm 144:1 Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. The Lord wants to teach us how to wage war in the Spirit, and His plan is for us to always WIN, by walking in Jesus’ (already established) victory.  So, there … Continue reading

When the Good News is No News [part 3]- A New Nature

This is the third, and final post of this series. To review: I spoke in post #1 about the “Divine Exchange”, how we are invited to come to God and give Him our junk and in exchange we get His goodness (!). In post #2 I pointed out the reality that we ALL (every person … Continue reading

When the Good News is No News [part 2] — We ALL Need Jesus

This post is #2 in a series addressing some issues I feel are integral to the reality of the Gospel (aka Good News).  They are an attempt to reaffirm the truths that make it  truly GOOD News!:)  I believe the Truth about Jesus — known as the Gospel, which actually means “Good News”– is THE … Continue reading

When the Good News is No News [Part 1]- the Divine Exchange
