This Weekend – Dealing with the chemical addiction of a loved one is not an event; it’s a journey that usually goes on for months or even years. There are good days, there are horrible ones! This story written by a school psychologist about her daughter’s addiction will speak to you in a powerful way. She came to the conclusion that her ultimate tool in dealing with her daughter was love. She couldn’t “fix” her, but she could love her. She certainly was right. We tell her story and take it into the next level as a believer in Christ. Her ultimate tool was intercession! She could lift her daughter up in prayer to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. It’s really not a bad combination for any of us: loving and praying for the person we care for. Does that speak to you at all?

Becoming Kingdom People
Luke 13:18-21, 17:20-21, and 18:15-17
This Week – Wrapping up a 3-week speaking tour of Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Kerala, India, I spoke at the International Baptist Church of Stuttgart, Germany where my daughter and son-in-law attend. This same message was given in Dubai, and two churches in India before giving it a fourth time in Germany. It’s a message about becoming Kingdom people. Jesus spoke about the Kingdom of God more than any other topic!
Becoming Kingdom People, Podcast
Monday (4/24) – We begin by sharing some of the 50-plus things that an organization says that Americans want the most. The list was serious even though some of the wants were not so serious. Interestingly enough, not one of them was what Jesus commands us to seek first: the Kingdom of God. We define the word kingdom as well as the term Kingdom of God. There must be a reason Jesus talked about it so much!
Becoming Kingdom People, Part 1
Tuesday (4/25) – We look at the first text in Luke where Jesus compares the Kingdom of God to a “mustard seed” and to “yeast”. It starts out small (life the mustard seed) but grows; the Kingdom of God was meant to grow in our lives, families, and circle of influence. It’s like yeast in the sense that it permeates everything it touches. Our lives hopefully impact others, starting with our families and radiating out from there!
Becoming Kingdom People, Part 2
Wednesday (4/26) – What do you do, what do you say, or what do you think that reflects the Kingdom of God in your life. We share a story of my family doctor in Atlanta who manifested that he and his wife were “Kingdom people”. Do you and I live our lives in such a way that people sense the Kingdom of God when they’re around us? If not, why not?
Becoming Kingdom People, Part 3
Thursday (4/27) – We share a true story about a computer software engineer from the Silicon Valley in California who became his daughter’s basketball coach. He was from India and never played basketball in his life and knew nothing about the game he was coaching! His story is a great example about the Kingdom of God. You need to hear about his experience as a coach; it’s a great “Kingdom lesson”.
Becoming Kingdom People, Part 4
Friday (4/28) – The closing illustration of this message is a personal one for me, I choked up with emotion when it happened. It’s about being a young minister in his 20’s who learned a valuable “Kingdom lesson” from an older minister who is now dead and gone. What he told me has impacted my life and ministry for over 35 years! You need to hear about his admonition to me about being a “Kingdom man or woman”.
