The Greatest Sermon Ever!

Posted on February 14

The Greatest Sermon Ever! He is seventy-nine years old. He could be sitting back playing dominoes or golf or watching television. Instead, he feels like his best days of witness are today and the days ahead. That’s an attitude with which to grow older! He decided to memorize the Sermon on the Mount. That’s right—three chapters of the Bible in Matthew. I was invited to give the prayer at the Chapel program where all the... more »

Irrelevant or Relevant?

Posted on February 7

Irrelevant or Relevant? Brock Purdy was the last person chosen in the 2022 NFL draft. That person receives the title “Mr. Irrelevant.” Nobody wanted him. The San Francisco 49ers took him. He would be the least likely person to become a super star two years later in the NFL. Statistics were against him, but he never relied on statistics. In 2024, he ultimately relies on God’s plan for his life, and he wants to be... more »

Posted on January 24

Let Go and Trust God I had the privilege of preaching at Redland Hills Church at two morning worship services in January 2024. Wes Gunn is the pastor. The church is only ten years old, but growing rapidly. One thing he does in the worship service is to have a lay person speak briefly before the offering is taken. It’s a personal witness about financial giving. The Sunday I was there a wonderful lady, Margaret... more »

A Real Winner

Posted on January 17

A Real Winner One of the exciting, successful, young professional football players this year has been C.J. Stroud, a rookie quarterback for the Houston Texans. He has had an incredible year. He led Houston to the playoffs for the first time since 2019. In the regular 2023 season, he passed for 4,108 yards, 29 touchdowns, and only 5 interceptions. He will probably be selected as the offensive rookie of the year. He always gives the... more »

YES PRIZE! When I first saw that Valiant Cross Academy had won the YASS Prize of $1 million, I thought it said the “YES” prize and I began thinking about a “YES” prize. Saying “YES” to God can bring life that is worth more than $1 million!

God Redefines the Possible

Posted on December 27

God Redefines the Possible Last week I wrote about the language of Christmas and the importance of speaking it. As we enter 2024, I want to add another aspect of that language that is so important for us to think and to speak every day of the year. It’s the Christmas language of possibilities. About ten years ago, two African American men, Anthony and Fred Brock, came to my office. I knew them through sports.... more »
