Interview with Morris Gleiser

As we only have two days left in the remainder of our revival meetings I thought that you might find this interview with Morris Gleiser helpful. This interview was taken from the Maranatha Baptist Bible College website:

Q: Do you enjoy preaching to college students?

A: I am getting to the age where my heart’s desire is to pass the sword to the next generation. I want to give them a passion, a vision for making a difference in the world. To be at Maranatha this week has been one of the greatest thrills of my life. There is certainly an energy inherent with being around college-age kids. But I have to remind myself I can’t run up and down the floor with them anymore.

You do use a lot of analogies from athletics in your preaching. Were you an athlete? Continue reading

Signs of Grace

  • A sign you’re growing in grace: the main foolishness you’re thinking about is the “foolishness of the cross”
  • A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re still pursuing your spouse, five, ten, twenty years later
  • A sign you’re growing in grace: The lure of personal peace & affluence is steadily losing ground to Jesus’ kingdom reign Continue reading

Good Friday (for who though?)

I recently came across this quote and it made me think about how I celebrate this Passion Week. Yes, I’ll celebrate Good Friday, but for whom was it really good?

Corrie Ten Boom put it like this:

“In the forest fire, there is always one place where the fire cannot reach. It is the place where the fire has already burned itself out. Calvary is the place where the fire of God’s judgment against sin burned itself out completely. It is there that we are safe.”

Good Friday is good for any who place their faith in the One, Jesus, who took the fiery wrath of God in our place.

Bible Reading for the Passion Week

This week is known as the Passion Week, the final days and events leading to the crucifixion of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Something I have not done before that I plan on doing this year is reading the events chronologically as they happened during the last week of Jesus’ life before the cross.

I have found two Bible reading plans that may help you as you begin this week. One is a suggestion for you personally and one may work for your family.

Product Review: TV Guardian

Back in October of last year our family purchased a TV Guardian. I have found it to be such a help to our family that I thought I would do a product review on the blog to be a help to our church families.

What is a TV Guardian?

A TV Guardian is a small, DVD player sized box that you connect to your TV or cable box. Depending on the strictness of the settings you choose, the TV Guardian mutes your TV of foul language using

Sustaining a Burden for the Unsaved

For the believer sustaining a long-term burden for unsaved is challenging. Oftentimes, hearing a passionate message brings short-term conviction which gives way after a period of days or at best weeks. There is nothing wrong with the initial surge of activity that follows God’s working in our lives. God will often use a message to “kick-start” our spiritual apathy, but how do we maintain the spiritual energy of  being burdened for the lost? Continue reading
