Ministry Perspectives, The Psalmist David asks the question in Psalm 11:3, "if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?" Good question in a period of history when it seems that the very foundations of our faith and future are being undermined daily by a general desire to cast off restraint and do one's own thing. I'm thankful that David knew the answer to the question. I'm grateful God directed him to write it down for the benefit of those who would come later. You read it in the next few verses, verses 4-7, "The LORD is in His holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men. The LORD tests the righteous, but the wicked and the

Ministry Perspectives, In reading a few weeks ago I came across a statement that the Holy Spirit has reinforced in my life over the past few days. The statement came from the book 'How to Pray' by Dr. Ronnie Floyd. Floyd said, (and I paraphrase) --'too many believers spend too much time trying to manage their sin instead of repenting of their sin and enjoying victory over it!' The more I think about it, that may well explain why the Church is powerless in its influence of salt and light in the present age. The BIG problem is not the assault from without but rather the corruption from within. I agree with Floyd that this is far too common the response to sin in the lives of many saints. And t

Ministry Perspectives, ETERNITY It's not about a place you go but rather a person you know (John 10:10b). Are you ready? Think about it. After all, we'll all have a while to live with our choice. The best definition of eternity I ever heard came from Pastor Tom Eliff when he said of eternity--'there is always as much in front of you as there is behind you!' Sobering thought IF a person is NOT ready when Jesus comes! Pstr K Hebrews 10:35-36

Ministry Perspectives, This truth was reinforced for me a few days ago concerning the motives that direct our prayers. It came from Ronnie Floyd's book on 'How to Pray.' Floyd says, 'the purpose of prayer is never getting your way or having your needs met. The purpose of prayer is always seeking God's will. One of the reasons you are commanded to pray is to get in on what God is doing around you. If you spend all your time asking God to meet your needs, then you will miss the real issue of prayer. You will see prayer as a frustrating spiritual exercise when God does not answer." end How different is that approach in prayer to most that are offered today? As one pointedly put it--'prayer sho

Ministry Perspectives, It is widely known and often discussed that our nation and world needs healing on a myriad of levels. While most focus on a vaccine to save the day so that some sense of normalcy can return, the healing that is needed most cannot be provided with a man-made vaccine. The healing we need in our nation requires the proven treatment of hearing and obeying the Word of God. As of late summer, (after the panic has passed) it appears that many Americans are still not interested enough in doing what is necessary for God to intervene in our nation. Most, some even in the body of the Church are still waiting on God to do something about the mess we're in while God is waiting on u
