I was just reminded a moment ago of how I felt before I had God in my life. There were periods of depression, doubting and uncertainty. I constantly dwelt on the past and never felt complete. 

I've been taking it for granted that I’ve always felt safe, secure, positive,...

Jesus is faithful, are we? It's a tall order to give our utmost for His highest. No one always obeys Christ’s commands. I certainly don’t. Crude language is one place I fall short. I’ve made progress. At least I don’t cuss in public anymore.

Yesterday I was thinking abo...

Not reading the Bible is like not eating. The Bible provides spiritual nourishment and sustenance. It is God’s glory and delight. God’s word nourishes us, guides us, redeems us, completes us. It is something to dedicate one’s life to.

The Bible is a lamp to our feet, a...

The Bible says we should rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances (1 Thess. 5: 16 -18). It’s tough to rejoice when you’re going through trials. Does it even make sense to rejoice in seemingly hopeless situations?

Australia has been home since 2016. I traveled here regularly before that to get trained for ministry. Since then I’ve shared the gospel in Perth, Northwest Australia, Nepal, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Sarawak. It’s been an awesome ride that I wouldn’t trade for anything...

Toward the end of the conversation, he said, “Quite often people doin...

When I moved to Western Australia I was still driving Californa style. Even though most California freeways are posted for 65 miles per hour, if I kept it under 80 I never got a ticket.

The Aussies take their speed limits more seriously. After getting five speeding tick...

Does Jesus bring salvation? Of course! Can He do all things on our behalf? Yes. He’s the Lord Creator of the universe.

Is Christ's grace sufficient? Yes, He died for us. He shed his precious blood so we could receive eternal life. We repent not to become more holy but s...

"Prayer can move the hand of God!" So says my great friend and mentor Freda Wiggins.

“Forgive us, oh Lord. for thinking prayer is a waste of time. Without prayer, our work is a waste of time.” Scottish preacher Peter Marshall uttered these words from his pulpit in Washi...

When my daughter was very young I accused her of lying. She was befuddled and had no idea what I was talking about. Children view the world through eyes of innocence. They faithfully trust and dance to the beat of a different drum.

Oh! that we all could possess the inno...
