There is great freedom in receiving forgiveness and in giving forgiveness. We can’t love God and love others as well without forgiving those who give us pain. When Jesus was in tortuous physical pain on the cross, (also in spiritual and emotional pain), He said these words: ”Father, forgive them, for they do not know […]

A few years ago, one of my former players, Steve Roberts , rode his bicycle cross country (from San Diego to Jekyll Island, GA). He carried the usual things (tent, sleeping bag, map, clothes, cell phone, etc) but the most valuable resources were the cyclist he met who were riding East to West. The best […]

Let go of the past and trust God for today. If Peter had clung to his past, the only thing we would know about him is that he was a head strong, fiery and passionate disciple prior to Jesus’ arrest. Like Peter, receive God’s grace and forgiveness. Keep moving forward and keep your eyes on […]
