Running The Race

I’m running the raceI’m running the race to winI’m running the raceI’m running the race to winSometimes I felt like giving upAnd falling down withinBut I’m still running the raceI’m running the race to win(Dallas Holm/Signal 1983) One of my favorite uncles sent me a birthday card years ago. On the front were cartoonish characters […]

Lyrics for Life

“The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.” (John 10:10 NASB) This is a verse with which I assume we are all familiar. Many of the modern day “prosperity preachers” have wrongly leveraged this verse in a way to suggest that Christians […]

Food For Thought

As a child, I thought that was an odd saying… “food for thought.” When I thought of food I thought of my stomach, not my mind. I thought of being hungry, I thought of cheeseburgers. However, as I got older, I realized that my mind needed wholesome nourishment as well as and perhaps more than […]

Respond

Put on the helmet of salvationPut on the breastplate of righteousnessClothe your whole being in holy armorWorthy to stand the test We’re in the battle of the agesIn the Lord’s army there’s no retreatFighting against the powers of darknessFor us there is no defeat(It’s War/Change The World, 1985 Words and Music by Dallas Holm) In […]

Prepare

In Times Like These

As I sit down to write this letter, it is approaching the middle of November. I just finished my morning walk amidst the cool breeze of autumn’s breath. Leaves are falling everywhere which only adds to the joy of this season I have been anticipating greatly through the heat of summer. We’ve still got some […]

The Spirit Within

It has been a most exciting and beneficial season for me as I have in recent months studied, pondered and written about the Holy Spirit and His relationship to our Christian lives. I hope it has been beneficial, encouraging and challenging to you as well. As I stated at the onset, it has not been […]

Spirit of the Living God

We know from Romans 8:9 that, “If you don’t have the Spirit of Christ, you don’t belong to Him.” Notice it doesn’t say a touch of the Holy Spirit or some partial impartation of the Holy Spirit. No, the context both from the scriptural framing of that verse and the context of how the early […]

Holy Spirit Baptism

The mere title of this letter conjures up doctrinal differences, emotional reactions and dogmatic opinions. Some people and/or denominations are so anxious to jump into the fray to support their definition of this particular area of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, that other equally, if not more important doctrinal considerations are largely overlooked or […]

God the Holy Spirit

The response from the last Praiseletter, Be Filled With the Spirit, has been most encouraging and has confirmed the notion that we should dig deeper and continue discussing biblical truth regarding the precious Holy Spirit. I began writing a song some years ago that I am recently revisiting.
