What is Your Eternal Net Worth?

One of my favorite Bible teachers and minister, Alstair Begg, recently chastised us for being more concerned with our IRAs (Individual Retirement Accounts) than our IEAs (Individual Eternity Accounts).  That brought to mind a WordBytes teaching I had written a few years ago.  It still has relevancy for those who have “an ear to hear.”  […]

Prosperity In The Word

There is much ado in the news this week about Creflo Dollar, pastor of the World Changers Church International in metro Atlanta, and his recent altercation with his daughter.  I found it interesting that most news releases gave special attention to the fact that Pastor Dollar is a proponent of the “prosperity message”, the size […]

The Invisible Cross-How do People See Christ in You?

  I recently celebrated my birthday–praise the Lord!  Before the special day, my husband asked what I would like for a gift.  At first I  couldn’t think of anything but then a thought came to mind–a cross necklace.  I had resisted either purchasing  or requesting a cross necklace before but this year I felt differently.  […]

Word Transformation: The Rhema of God

God’s Word contains power to transform a person’s life. The secret to “Word transformation” is two-fold: first the reading of the Bible and secondly, in living out its specific instructions.

As I Look in the Mirror…Remembering MOMA

The occasion–my sister’s 70th birthday.  I rebuked the cold of Cottage Grove, Minnesota to spend this special time with my “Sister Dear.”  How much fun it was to laugh and be silly once again like we did when we were little girls.  We even shared her king-size bed for our five days of true sisterhood. […]

Jeremiah was called to be the moral voice for a nation that didn’t care about right and wrong.  His heart was torn between his love for his nation and his love for God—a love which demanded obedience.  This internal conflict is why he is called the “Weeping Prophet.”  His weeping, however, was not a sign […]

Increase Your JOY CAPACITY

Upon return from exile, Nehemiah told the builders of the new wall of Jerusalem that “the joy of the  Lord would be their strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10) The joy that could only come from eternal God would sustain them through the most dire of circumstances. The principle of joy in all circumstances still resonates even in […]
