Visions Of His Holiness

by Terry Lanford on December 2nd, 2015

Over the past week I have been gripped by thoughts of God’s holiness. These thoughts have been shaped by dwelling on some of the most high and holy moments found in Scripture. I didn’t engage in a deep Bible study. In fact, I simply meditated on the Holy Spirit’s description of moments where God’s holiness left a life changing imprint.  

The Lens Crafter

by Terry Lanford on November 18th, 2015

One day while Jesus was in a town called Bethsaida, “some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him” (Mark 8:22). Their motivation wasn’t so much an issue of compassion and concern as it was a desire to see Jesus perform another miracle. Their actions were no more spiritually motivated than when we take a trip to LensCrafters to get a new pair of glasses.

Do You Guard Against False Teaching?

by Terry Lanford on October 22nd, 2015

On two separate occasions, Jesus fed thousands of people with a handful of fish and loaves. I have always thought of the feeding of the 4000 as a parallel and somewhat secondary miracle to the feeding of the 5000. Almost as if the second was needed to confirm the first was not a fluke.

Friends Don’t Let Friends...

Holding Hands
by Terry Lanford on October 4th, 2015

We are all familiar with the slogan, “Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.” That slogan has been frequently amended and added to bumper stickers and t-shirts to communicate various messages. For example, friends don’t let friends, do stupid things, alone. Friends don’t let friends wear bad outfits.

Entrusted To Teach Workshops

by Terry Lanford on September 9th, 2015

God has entrusted Bible teachers with the sacred task of instilling His Word in the hearts of His people. God is intensely passionate about Bible teaching! He established the teaching of His Word as a kingdom priority. Unfortunately, many small group Bible teachers have had little or no training for the task. Please check out the attached video about the new "Entrusted To Teach" workshops which are designed to equip small group Bible teachers.

Give Me Crumbs!!! Please!!!!

by Terry Lanford on September 1st, 2015

I can’t say that I often think of crumbs in a very positive light. After all, they tend to be very minute pieces of food that end up on the floor. They are swept out with a broom or licked off the floor by a pet. When we have a need, in any area of our life, we are likely be insulted if offered crumbs to meet that need. A fraction of medicine, surgery, repair, salary, friendship, or love might as well be nothing at all.

Your Small Group Bible Teacher Needs Your Prayer

by Terry Lanford on August 19th, 2015

Perhaps we have no better chance to learn about prayer than when we see God Himself pray.  I hope you will take time to look at Mark 14:32-39 and John 17 sometime this week.  One passage shows us Jesus praying to the Father in the Upper Room with the disciples and the other show us Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane before His crucifixion.  I believe these Scriptures teach us some great principles for our own prayer life.

When Jesus Hangs Out by the Pool

Pool at Bethesda
by Terry Lanford on August 14th, 2015

One day while Jesus was in Jerusalem for one of the Jewish feasts, He took a trip to the local pool (John 5:1-15). Now usually when we think of a pool, we think of recreational swimming in cool refreshing water. The pool called Bethesda was not that kind of pool. Bethesda means house of mercy. This pool might have been more aptly described as a house of misery. Instead of healthy people wearing swimsuits and catching rays, the people around this pool were physically and spiritually broken. John described them as “a multitude of sick – blind, lame and paralyzed” (John 5:3).
