“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 Paul’s charge to Timothy is primarily a challenge for him to share the Gospel – to resist being timid and to walk in the authority he has in Christ. To boldly […]

If you ever go to the beach and attempt to swim, you’ll most likely swallow some of the water. While at the beach with my family, on many occasions I’ve heard the kids coughing as they gulped the water. I’ve also been pummeled by a wave that made me ingest some sea water. All I […]

John 6:35“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” “I am so hungry!”, “I am Starving!” my kids have all made these statements at times. My son Josh, is the most dramatic of all the […]

"Quench the Thirst"

One of my boys had soccer practice this week and I was so proud of him as he gave 110 percent on the field, he ran, and handled anything that happened on the field well. Mid-way through practice the coach noticing the kids were showing signs of exhaustion yelled “everyone go get a drink”. At […]
