Difference between Spiritual Gifts and Natural Talents

talent

I received a great question last week from William, who asked, “What is the difference between spiritual gifts and natural talents?” The answer is really very simple: Natural talents reveal your human ability whereas spiritual gifts reveal Christ’s supernatural ability. That’s the answer; but if you want some explanation, read on! This concept comes from the words of […]

Treasure Hunt Evangelism – God’s Healing Power in Public

treasure

This past Wednesday, Robin and I took two teens from our youth group and one of our church’s interns out on a Treasure Hunt. We weren’t after any ordinary treasure–we were searching out the same sort of treasure as the woman who lost her coin in Luke 15:8-10. The results were nothing less than supernatural. […]

At the police station, the officers were some of the nicest people you would ever meet! They were courteous, friendly, and […]

How to Receive Vision from God

vision

Do you have vision for your life? Proverbs 29:18 says that “Where there is no vision, the people perish…” (KJV). Other translations use the word “revelation” instead of “vision;” and they say that without it, “the people are unrestrained” (rather than the word “perish”). Here’s what I get from this: We need specific revelation from […]

Binding and Loosing – A More Powerful Definition

bind

Have you ever heard someone explain a commonly misunderstood concept, and then your new understanding seems to haunt you? Such is the case for me when it comes to “Binding and Loosing,” which many Christians talk about but few understand. When I was around 11 years old, a minister visited our church and spoke about […]

Today I was watching “Animal Planet” and they had a special about a wildlife preserve where the young bull elephants started brutally killing the rhinos. The solution was to bring in an older, more mature herd of elephants to model appropriate behavior for the younger ones and hopefully provide some sort of behavioral infratructure that […]
