Put Your Job Before Your Marriage


I’m certain of the right way to load a dishwasher. My wife isn’t. And this has been a recurring point of tension in our marriage. Recently, I was re-loading the dishwasher and griping (so maturely) about it when the Holy Spirit gently but piercingly spoke: “You chose her.” Ever experience how God can say something simple that nonetheless penetrates several layers at once? This was one of those...

What if God Doesn’t Change You?


What is the area of sin or temptation that is most tenacious in your life? What’s that problem area you can’t seem to change? We live in a consumer-driven culture, so we’re conditioned to approach a lot of life from a consumer perspective. Is this a good deal? What does this offer me? What do I get out of this?

Just as importantly, those they’re telling are listening. From a healing standpoint, all this is so significant and so good. In our experience at Regeneration walking with men and...

The Reality Of Desire


“Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, ‘What are you seeking?'” ~John 1:38 Do you know what you want?  For what do you wish?  What do you seek?  Each human being, every day of their life, wrestles in some way, shape or form with desire. As human beings, made in the image of God, the pull of desire is built into us, it is part of our DNA.  Because desire is God...
