Acts 5:28-28
Topic: Doctrine
At the School of Missions in 1994 I listened intently as Rev. G. A. Tracy, the newly appointed Coordinator of Overseas Ministries (then Director of Education/AIM) expressed his burden for training. His suggestion that full scale theological education is taking so much time (usually three years), and is not getting the job of world evangelism done, caught me in a mixture of emotional responses. One part of me wanted to emphatically reject what he was saying, having been involved in full-time Bible College work for eleven years. [ read more... ]

God's Training Manual For Today's Church

Acts 17:6-6
Topic: Vision
In the “great commission,” Jesus placed “discipleship” at the top of the church’s “List of Things to Do Today.” However, like many “to do” lists, we have pushed what needs to be done today off until a distant tomorrow that never arrives. The real priority slips further down on the list each day. Thus, the church lacks the desire needed to reach the world. We must focus on our central purpose of making disciples. [ read more... ]

The Prodigals Are Coming Home!

Luke 15:20-20
Topic: General
Today, I feel compelled to focus on those that have heard this gospel before and have, at one time or another, walked in truth. But, for some reason, have walked or strayed away from it. They are commonly referred to as ‘prodigals’ or ‘backsilders.’ Neither word seems to be explicitly found in the King James Version of the Bible. However, both are unmistakably reverenced there.

The Blessings of Giving

Acts 20:35-35
Topic: Stewardship
When we think of “blessings”, we usually think in terms of “getting” or “receiving”. Much emphasis is put on “prosperity” by modern church movements and it is the desire of many Christians. The “Full Life Study Bible” mentions, “The measure of blessing and reward we receive will be in proportion to our concern and help given to others.” It is a biblical principle mentioned in 2 Corinthians that if we “Give Generously .... Reap Generously.” However, if we “Give Sparingly ...Reap Sparingly.” [ read more... ]
