It is not my responsibility to make you do what's right. It's my responsibility to let you know that there's a God Who loves you, and that He will forgive you..., and, as much as I can, show you that love relationship [with God].

Matthew 7:1-12

[Jesus] looks out…and He says, “Do not judge.” You know, this is a problem that we, in the flesh, have regularly, every day. Sometimes every moment of the day. We’re judging… Jesus says, “Do not judge or you too will be judged.” Well, I’m afraid that we’re all pretty doomed to judgement, because I don’t know of anybody so far that I’ve met that does not judge in one way or another. So, He doesn’t stop there. He says, “For…
Do you know why I want to go to heaven? Because God is there. The One Who loves me. The One Who created me. The One Who desired me long before I desired Him is there. It's where it says He dwells, so I want to go there, because that's where He is. You know what? If God wasn't in heaven...it wouldn't be heaven.

Matthew 6:15-34

God is looking into your heart. God desires to reward you for your relationship with Him and the motive of your heart and why you have that relationship with Him. It’s all about motive. I know a lot of people who only go to church so they can look religious so that God will be impressed so God will let them into heaven. And so, of course, you have to look at all of the religious things that you’ve got…
Jesus didn't come to make us guilty. We're already guilty! He came to free us from the guilt, to forgive us of the sin, and to fulfill His Father's law which started with love.

Matthew 5:13-20

Blessing isn’t about stuff. Blessing is about attitude: about an attitude of heart. You know what? We all need things in our life. I think we all have far more things than we really need in our life. We can live with a lot less, and God will provide those things that we need. But I think we have developed a wrong theology within our society, that we then look at those things as the blessing. But the blessing truly…
Blessing, real blessing, comes when we have an attitude of humility before God saying, "I can't do it on my own. Jesus, I need You."

Matthew 5:1-12

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be blessed, blessed by God? Do you realize God desires to bless you in your life? He pours the blessings of heaven out on you… But the real blessings come when our heart-attitude changes… What does the title “Beatitudes” mean? Well, I’ve come to the conclusion, it is an attitude of heart. A lifestyle that starts when we begin to hunger for the knowledge of God. When you truly desire to be…
You know, it is not about heaven and it is not about hell. It is about a relationship! A love relationship that you can have that is far greater than anything you have in this world right now. It's good news!

Matthew 4:12-25

You and I, when we face temptation in the world, where we fall short is we are distracted by our own flesh. We are distracted by our own desires. We are distracted by our own expectations… Why do we do what we do in the world? Why do we do what we do in our lives and with our friends? Do we do it because we care for them? [Because] we want to see them walking closer with the God…
God, have Your way in my life, even if my life has to be a little uncomfortable, even if I don't get the things I want.

Matthew 4:1-11

Does God love you when trouble starts? Does God lead you, sometimes, into trouble? Would God do that to you? Yes. You know what? Sometimes the only way to get the attention of the world is to step into the trouble that they’re living in, and God leads you there. God will allow you to be persecuted. God will allow you to be tried. God will allow you to be tested… When you face trouble in your life, how do…
Salvation and growth in the Lord come with knowing Jesus, not just being acquainted with Him, but knowing Him personally.

Matthew 3:1-17

The Lord is coming, and we need to be prepared. If the Lord were to rapture us tonight, how many of us would really, actually be prepared for that? How many of us, let me put it this way, would want Jesus to take us from the activities that we are doing this evening or tomorrow during the day or tomorrow evening or any day, any particular point in that day, would you want Jesus to come for you and…
John 15:11

John 15:9-27

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired July 27, 2003. Have you ever felt like there was no joy in your life? The one thing Jesus hoped to accomplish in His disciples by encouraging them to remain in Him is that His joy may be in them and that His joy may be in you. “I have told you this.” The whole reason He just laid out this vine and branch and fruit scenario is so that…
To say "I don't hear God" means that you're not reading or studying His Word whatsoever. If you have opened God's Word and read it and studied it in any way, I guarantee you, you have heard God speak to you, and you have no excuse. None.

Matthew 2:1-23

What is important to you that you can offer to Jesus? What’s valuable to you that you should be offering to Jesus? You know what? If you’re wise, you will be seeking Jesus, and if you’re wise, when you find Jesus, you will worship Him, and if you’re wise, you will, then, offer Him out of that treasure that is yours, a gift. What’s valuable to you? What can you give up for Jesus, to be that gift to Him?…
John 15:7

John 15:1-8

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired July 20, 2003. What is it that the Father is looking for? The Father is looking for fruit. Fruit that you are truly a part of the vine. If you are a part of the plant the produces fruit, then it is reasonable to assume that fruit will be produced in you… You know what? I have people ask me all the time, “How do I know that the Spirit…
Is it okay for the Holy Spirit to do a work in your life even if you don't like it?

Matthew 1:17-25

Forgiveness…this is something that I believe should be the earmark of every believer today. We are so quick today to judge one another, to condemn one another. I don’t care what the circumstances are… And righteousness dictates that we look at the circumstance, and instead of publicly humiliating and demanding the law take affect, look for ways to love and forgive… Sin separates us from God. From the time of Adam, sin has separated us from the love relationship that…
John 14:21

John 14:15-31

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired July 13, 2003. Just as Jesus had the function of being the Son that came to this earth to save you and I, you and I now have a function to represent the Father and the Son through the Spirit to the rest of the world, even in our hardships, even in those struggles and those hard times that we’ll face, we put our faith in Him. ¬†Back to verse…
