Are You A Pack-Rat?

  • Thursday, May 27, 2010
  • Sheri Cooper

Are you a pack-rat?  Do you save things just knowing someday you'll need one of them - but when you do, you can't even find it?  I have a friend just like that.  She won't get rid of anything "useful." 

Watching her overwhelming clutter control her, I decided it was time to eliminate a lot of things I've been holding on to.  So, each month I give away something, and throw away something.  My kids and grandkids have begun to love this, as I am passing on things that have meaning to them - their old school ...

Do You Feel Ill-equipped to Disciple?

As a follower of Christ, do you sometimes feel insecure when it comes to sharing your faith, much less leading others to Christ?  I know I do.  I have this tendency to over analyze a situation, focus too much on my flaws and inabilities, and then end up doing nothing. 

 

But yet the Scriptures provide an important reminder that we’re really no different than the 12 ordinary guys who became Jesus’ disciples.  Jesus took these men with their flaws and inabilities and turned their weaknesses into strengths.  I don’t know about you but that gives me great encouragement ...

Better Than Iron Man

Dr. Gary Parker in Sierra Leone (2001)In Iron Man 2, Stark declared that he has done the world a big favor: "I have successfully privatized world peace!"  He (Iron Man) single handedly made the world a safer place.

I wish life were that simple. It would be incredible if one creative and benevolent individual would eradicate world hunger and poverty, while at the same time introduce lasting peace, joy and mercy.

Come to think of it, there was one teacher who started a movement a little over 2000 years ago in a dusty Middle Eastern town.  He taught his followers radical ideas on loving God and ...

A Chord of Three Strands

There's no doubt about it -- relationships can be tough.  Sometimes I think life would be so much easier without people!  Seriously though, most days I long for relationship.  Perhaps it's because God created us for relationship.

I'm not surprised that the most common issue that is addressed in listener correspondence to Revive Our Hearts is this matter of relationships.  People are crying out about hurt and pain and challenges with their relationships. 

To help us with answers, Nancy Leigh DeMoss is teaching a new series called, The Power of Relationships, providing listeners much-needed encouragement while looking at ...

The Impact of a Worldview

It could be my generation, but my friends often question how much of a difference any particular worldview makes. Especially as relativism is embraced, the assumption that worldview doesn't change anything is becoming more and more prevalent. Candidly, there's nothing further from the truth.

Worldview impacts everything!

Chuck ColsonEveryday Chuck Colson and Mark Earley remind us about the value of a correct of a worldview. From social justice to politics, from loving a neighbor to business--the Christian faith changes how we engage with the world.

I'm a bit of a worldview junkie, loving apologetics. That's why I ...
