Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
The two men walked along the road by the sea on their way from Smyrna to Pergamum. The older man’s step was quite as spry as the younger. The elder was Jewish. The younger man was obviously Greek. Despite the differences in their backgrounds and ages they carried on a lively conversation as they walked. John often used their travels to plant his life and all that he knew of Jesus into the life of Polycarp. As they walked Polycarp asked a favorite…Continue

So, Jeremiah, if you’re worn out in this footrace with men,

And if you can’t keep your wits during times of…

The cover of one of my earlier books shows ripe fruit overflowing a plate. Fruitfulness is certainly at the heart of God’s purpose for prayer in our lives. In John 15:7,8 Jesus spoke to this in a wonderful promise.
“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By…Continue

I shaped your existence in the first place.
To begin with, there were two cells, then 28 billion—that was the clay.
I am the Omnipotent Creator, the Potter who made you like you are.
I engineered the delicate, inner…

Theos was tired and footsore when he came to the little fishing village on the coast of Asia. He had been sent by Timothy, the bishop of the church in Ephesus, to find Mary, who was with a group ministering somewhere along the road to the north. He doubted if he would find a place to eat and spend the night in this village, but he might find the evangelistic team here. In keeping with his assignment, he approached a stooped old man on…Continue

Those who wait on the LORD will find new strength.
They will fly high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

John 15:7,8 gives us some crucial insight into answered prayer.

By this my Father is glorified,
that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my…Continue

Every time I passed by, he was there – in the cul-de-sac, near his house, seated in his walker/chair, across from the school, with his American flag flying, a smaller flag in his hand, waving. I often thought of stopping to visit with him, but it was COVID season and social distancing was being advised. So, I slowed down, lowed my window and saluted him and his flags. He always responded with a wave. One day, as I passed by, there was a fire truck and an ambulance in the cul-de-sac. I…Continue

Phillip walked with Simon the leper and his wife Martha from the Temple Service where the church that had sometimes been uncomfortable with Philip’s Greek name had encouraged him and prayed for him as he prepared to leave. Many had gone out from the Jerusalem church. Some were driven more by the danger of persecution than they were by the final command of Jesus, but all of them went with the gospel in their hearts. Martha had seen her…Continue

Your eyes will see the king in all his splendor, and you will see a land that stretches into the distance.
You will see Zion as a place of worship and celebration. You will see Jerusalem a city quiet and secure.

The two men were walking home from the temple after their baptism. Much had changed in their lives after the resurrection of Jesus. Like many who had been afraid to come to Jesus while He taught in their cities, they both now believed wholeheartedly in the risen Christ.
Jonathan said, “Simon, I can’t understand how I could have been so blind to Jesus before His crucifixion. I should have understood…Continue

You may be familiar with the word about praying in the will of God in 1John 5:14-15.
“And this is the confidence that we have towards him,
that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.
And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask,
we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.”
I remember a time when I showed…Continue

The difference between envision and vision is that envision sees or imagines something within the mind, and vision sees something as if it was true. When I was young we had no TV, so I listened to The Lone Ranger and baseball’s Game of the Day on the radio. While I could not see the action, I could envision the scenes and events in my mind. In the long run, I think it helped me be a person of vision. Once you start seeing something in your mind, you start seeing how it can happen, then you…Continue

It is firm, a tested and precious cornerstone safe to build on.
Whoever believes need never run away again.”

Several of us who were baptized in that first week after the Spirit came upon the church were remembering things we had heard Jesus say before we believed and understood. We were still having some difficulty understanding. Dorcus suggested that we ask some of the apostles to explain these things. That made sense to the rest of us, and we began searching the temple area for apostles. We found several of them praying in Solomon’s…Continue
