KNOW YOUR BIBLE and MONEY

KNOW YOUR BIBLE and MONEY One of the most popular things about our Know Your Bible television ministry is that we never ask the viewers for money.  And I mean never.  Most media ministries solicit funds – either low-key or hard-sell – during the program, when you respond, when you order the “free” offer, or…

What Peter Learned by Walking with Jesus

What Peter Learned by Walking with Jesus For three long years, Jesus lived a hard life – a nomadic rabbi without a home, walking from town to town with only a small group of followers, teaching and healing and feeding the crowds.  During that time, Jesus taught His closest disciples, preparing them for their lifelong…

Finding Your Rhythm

May is upon us, and things are about to get busy! During busy times, as parents of young children, Ginny and I have often found ourselves having a moment of clarity, and vowing to make more time to do spiritual things as a family.

The First Easter Morning

Perspective From Purpose

Perspective From Purpose For the majority of Sunday morning classes for the past 5 years Northside teens have been working through a book of the Bible verse by verse. It’s always amazing for me to see lights come on, and questions get answered from the timeless and living word of God. Reading through God’s word…

A Modern-Day Parable

A Modern-Day Parable One day, an old Christian named Rufus Leekin called his Christian brother, Lee Vight, and asked if he would like to buy some of his family antiques. “Why do you want to sell those things, Rufus?” asked Lee. “I thought they were heirlooms.” “They are, but I need to hire somebody to…
