God Operates In The Unexpected

Rarely does God work in ways in which we expect that he will. Even the non-religious among us may admit to believing that God does indeed work in “mysterious ways.”   From Genesis to Revelation we see clearly (thanks to hindsight) that God pretty much always works in the most unexpected ways. He told Abraham…

More than Conquerors

Christ follower, Do you believe you are a Conqueror?  And if that, do you believe you are MORE THAN a Conqueror?

To Infinity…. and Beyond!!

The Frontline Global Impact coordinators team is reading A.W. Tozer’s “The Attributes of God.”  Chapter one is about God’s infinitude.    As I was reading today, I was particularly struck by a statement Tozer makes about salvation:  “The Church will come out of her doldrums when we find out that salvation is not a light bulb…

Thats Life!

            I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king.           I’ve been up and down and over and out and I know one thing:           Each time I find myself, flat on my face,           I pick myself up and get back in the race!    …
