Actions = Results

Friday, January 15th, 2010

As I was reading in Colossians this morning, these Actions = Results stood out in my mind.  The spiritual maturity and insight that we crave (results), are clearly linked to actions.   Sow to these actions and harvest the results.

The LoTech Word of God

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

Those of us who teach and preach the Word of God can sometimes be concerned about all the competition we face with all of the world’s entertainment systems.  How can we compete with a multi-million dollar Hollywood production?  How can we compete with the fast action and ready access of TV?  

But whenever those thoughts crowd in and try to defeat,  we must remind ourselves that we are not teaching and preaching some great words of wisdom only … we are called and commissioned to teach/preach nothing less than The Word of God.  

1 Corinthians 1:18

“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

The Word of God brings life for all eternity.  Nothing else can do that!  Preachers and teachers don’t have to compete with the world’s entertainment:  We have the Life Transforming Word of God to share!

God’s Message – preached in God’s Power – will transform lives!   What can compete with that?!?!?!?
