What Language Do You Speak?

Connecting with others in a meaningful way, or should I say, in a way that is meaningful to them, is the key to enjoying your relationships. So, how do you do this? By being OTHERS-CENTERED! The way I like to say it is with the acrostic J.O.Y. Jesus first. Others second. You third. This is [...]

By the Power of the Holy Spirit

The testimonies from the Holy Spirit Workshop are just wonderful. One person shared: I just wanted to thank you guys for putting last night together. I feel so refreshed, recharged, awakened, excited, filled... you name it! You really don't know just HOW EMPTY your tank WAS until it starts to get filled again. That was [...]

3 Things You Don’t Want to Forget!

“Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-21 God is doing a new thing in your life this [...]

2017 Word and Prayer Plan

15 minutes in the Word 15 minutes in prayer  If you will spend 15 minutes each day in the Bible and 15 minutes in prayer your life will be revolutionized! The Word Did you know the Bible is alive? It isn’t an archaic book written by the inspiration of man, but rather, it is the [...]

Life Your Eyes!

Did you know that Jesus said very little about politics when He was on the earth? Why do you think that is? I think this passage says it all: “On that very day some Pharisees came, saying to Him, ‘Get out and depart from here, for Herod wants to kill You.’ And He said to [...]

A Word For You!

It seems that whenever I take an extended break, which I just came off of this week, Jesus gives me a fresh word. Does that happen to you? I think it might be because when we relax long enough He is able to speak deeply into our hearts.   Well, it happened to me again [...]

Testimony from Ron Farnsworth

Here is some good news from our brother, Ron Farnsworth: Last Saturday and Sunday, we (Kairos prison ministry) had a two day retreat for graduates of our 4 day program. I had the wonderful opportunity to greet a number of the men who attended and visit with several of the men I've come to know and love. One [...]

The Things I’ve Learned

I read a post the other day that is a powerful example of what I wrote a few days ago on being, "Unstoppable!" I decided to post it here to encourage you. This is from one of the best writers I know, and someone who has some deep things to say to us all – [...]

What Do You Do About Unanswered Prayers?

Last Sunday I asked everyone in the church who had suffered disappointment through unanswered prayer to stand. There wasn’t a person left sitting. You are not alone. The question isn’t whether or not you will experience the disappointment of unanswered prayer, but rather what are you going to do about it? The temptation, of course, is [...]

Do You Want More of the Power of God?

Where’ the Power? One day a man brought his son who had epilepsy to the first followers of Jesus. The disciples prayed and prayed for him but nothing happened. Has that ever happened to you? It has to me, more times than I care to count. And that bothers me. So what happened in their [...]

What Forgiveness is NOT!

I did a short teaching on forgiveness on Sunday. (Click Here) It was short because it was the last point of a four point sermon on obstacles to finishing your spiritual race. (Hebrews 12:1-3; 1 Corinthians 9:24-27) I didn’t put it last because it was the least important. In fact, it is probably the most [...]

Being Thankful by Les Meredith

You cannot read the Bible without seeing all the commands to “be thankful” in all things.  I have not been a very thankful person most of my life-I was always willing to work harder for “more” and not taking a lot of time to appreciate what I already had.  But when you don’t express thankfulness, [...]

Praise story for trust and provision

Praise Story! written by Les Meredith Some of you knew that Erik and Jasmine (and their three kids) had been told by their landlord they would have to move out of their house this month.
