This past month, my father and I were privileged to speak at a national summit of Native American leaders in Springdale, Arkansas. It was a wonderful time to meet Native leaders from various tribes who had come from across North America including Canada and Alaska. Years earlier, my father had challenged a Native American gathering…

Easter is a favorite time for many Christians and for obvious reasons. It reminds us of the glorious fact that Christ wins. Sin, death, Satan, and hell do their worst, yet Christ magnificently overcomes them all. We are on the winning side! The Christ whom we serve is risen and present and working out His…

I just returned from a trip to Israel. BMI and First Baptist Jonesboro jointly sponsored a tour. If you have been to Israel you know that many things impact you while you are there. For one, you are struck by how many places there are in that small country that God did an amazing work…

For people in the West, the rise of Islam around the world is at times bewildering. What could motivate young men or women to strap explosives to themselves and then blow up innocent civilians in a crowded square?

What can appear like mere semantics to one person can have enormous implications for how people live their lives and relate to God. For example, the most common way today to invite people to become Christians is, “Would you like…

So much of the quality of our life depends on where we look. It doesn’t take much to draw our attention to the wrong things. I am 34,000 feet above Greenland as I write this. I am returning from a conference in the Swiss Alps. The meeting was tremendous, the weather gorgeous, and the scenery…

I had a fascinating lunch meeting yesterday. A man flew from New York City to Atlanta to have lunch with me and my dad. He leads a Christian ministry to the United Nations and wanted to make us aware of an important upcoming event. On January 9, 2011 Southern Sudan will vote in a referendum…

This Fall, Experiencing God will celebrate its 20th anniversary. It is hard to believe that it has been out so long. This coming March there will be a special event in Nashville to commemorate the anniversary and to provide special training for those who are leading Experiencing God groups. One of the wonderful things I…
