by Jim Ramsey I read somewhere recently that there is now a label out there (“truefax”) that is used when something is undeniably true.” I always thought that a “true fact” was an oxymoron, that if it was indeed a “fact” then it was indeed “true.” I'm confused! If there are “true facts” then are […]
By Andrew Calabrese Every day we make choices that shape our life story. What would your life look like if you let godly principles guide those choices? If someone asked you to tell your life's story, what would you say? You might start with where you were born and how you were raised. You might […]
by Jim Ramsey Mark's Gospel is a “busy” book in which Jesus seems the busiest, moving from one event to another. In his “Gospel of the Servant” narrative, the emphasis is on the deeds of Jesus more than on the words of Jesus. One of those many deeds is recorded in the first twelve verses […]
By Joe Monds I'm not a native Okie, but I've come to appreciate aphorisms of Will Rogers. He says, “It takes a lifetime to build a good reputation, but you can lose it in a minute.” This idea is presented by our friend Solomon in the Book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 10, Verse 1: “Dead flies […]
By Andrew Calabrese This may seem like an obvious question, but I want you to think about it anyway. Are you ready? Here it is: what is your most valuable, non-replenishing resource? The answer is—ding, ding, ding—time. You can always make more money, but you cannot make more time. If you want to have a […]
By Jesse Becker Things change. The weather. The political scene. The stock market. Our health. Our families. Our attitudes and outlooks. Near the very beginning, after God created a perfect world, sin entered in and everything changed. God's relationship with man was interrupted, and the curse of sin prevailed throughout the universe. But God set […]
By Teri Dorrell This is the time of year when we realize how fast time flies! We have so many good intentions in January that were never accomplished because we didn't “make” them happen. Making memories has to be intentional and purposeful. Life is about moments. Don't wait for them, create them! My baby just […]
by Jim Ramsey Ah, the subway! Allow me once again to reflect on a vacation experience (sorry no photos) that, believe it or not, I really enjoyed. I am a “people person,” and riding the subway in Boston was a time to rub elbows (literally!) with a great host of them as we spent a […]
By Daniel Fleet The words that we use are powerful and they have an impact on those around us. A hammer can be used to tear things down or build things up and our words are no different. The words we speak, text, or write can be used to nurture, heal, and protect, or, they […]
by Jim Ramsey Would you like the world to be a better place for your having been here?” This is the question posed by Ken Blanchard in his forward to Bob Bickel's book Finishing Well. The premise of the book and its entire focus is on individuals who had a plan that they followed in […]
    Proverbs 22:6 says: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. I believe that child training is the most obviously neglected element in raising children today. To be more precise, I believe intentional and purposeful training is the most neglected element. The [...]
For the past 21 years, it has been the joy of my life to be married to my wife, Teri. Together, the Lord has blessed us with seven children and years of wonderful memories and experiences. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate our marriage somewhere around an 11 or 12. However, [...]
By James Osborne of Fox News  (link to original article here) A Christian evangelical group that works to improve the lives of underprivileged children says it has been prohibited from conducting Bible study classes in public housing projects in Tulsa, Okla., potentially violating a Supreme Court ruling that upheld religious groups’ right to the use of public institutions.  For [...]
During the month of June, I will be writing a number of articles entitled “Hope for the Home,” a series intended to help strengthen relationships in our families. Today—more than ever—our homes are under fire and imperiled as never before. Our busy schedules, financial pressures and the loss of time together threaten to make our [...]
Outliers is a fascinating look into the reasons some people succeed and others do not. Malcolm Gladwell’s research debunks some popular notions about why people make it to the top of their professions and reinforces the simple principle of hard work. His main thesis is that success is primarily a function of privileged opportunity coupled [...]
And it came to pass, when the time was come, that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because [...]

Jason has served [...]
This past week I had the opportunity to present the Purposeful Parenting Seminar and preach to the membership of Landmark Baptist Church in Clio, Michigan.  Pastor David Pirkle, a graduate of Heartland Baptist Bible College, has been leading this church for the past 18 months and is doing a wonderful job.  The spirit of the [...]

During the 2009 Thirty–Fourth Commencement and Graduation Ceremony of Pensacola Christian College it was my privilege to be awarded an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Divinity.   Nearly 6000 people were on hand to witness 800 students from all 50 states and 34 countries receive degrees. It was a very special day that I will never [...]
It was a joy to have Bro. TJ Wilder and his family present the ministry of the Triple R Ranch in our evening services this past week.  Bro. Wilder just started the ministry for teenage boys and hopes to help young men get back on track with God.  The Ranch is a ministry of the [...]
This past Sunday, the Lord blessed our services in a great way, and the Lord used His Word to encourage many. Sunday morning, I preached from John chapter 11 on the resurrection of Lazarus. I focused on the first part of the story about Jesus tarrying after he heard the news of his friend’s illness. [...]

On Wednesday nights we will begin a character study of the 12 disciples.  We will be studying how God used these ordinary men to accomplish something extraordinary.  As we learn about this small group of men who turned the world upside down, I hope we will find encouragement, inspiration, and hope for doing the same.  We too can [...]
(CNN) — Rapid-fire TV news bulletins or getting updates via social-networking tools such as Twitter could numb our sense of morality and make us indifferent to human suffering, scientists say.  Scientists say updates on networking tools such as Twitter are often too quick for the brain to fully digest. New findings show that the streams of [...]
