He's Coming--Now What?

By Skip Heitzig

At about four o'clock every afternoon, my mother used to say the same thing to me: "Your father will be home soon." Those words were either very exciting to me or struck fear in my heart. If I was living well that day, I looked forward to seeing Dad. But if I was pushing my boundaries, it was more like, "Uh-oh."

Blessings or Blastings

By Skip Heitzig

Imagine standing on the twentieth floor of a building and saying, "I don't care about the law of gravity. I don't want to live under it. I want my liberation," and then exercising your freedom with that kind of thinking. That's not a smart law to ignore, is it? You'll end up a big splat on the sidewalk.

As silly as that sounds, it brings us to

Covetousness or Contentment?

By Skip Heitzig

Our attitude toward material things reveals a lot about us, whether we have a tight grip on things or a light touch. That's the subject of the tenth and final commandment: "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's" (

By Skip Heitzig

I think of all the tasks we could ever be assigned, all the occupations we could ever be engaged in, especially within marriage, the most important is that of being a parent. But it's also one of the toughest. By the time you're experienced, you're out of a job. Just when you're getting the hang of it, your kids leave the house!

The King of Christmas

By Skip Heitzig

For years, Santa Claus has been regarded as the undisputed king of Christmas. Well, we as believers know he is not. He may be the king of shoppers and commercialism, but Jesus Christ is the real King of Christmas.

In chapter 9 of his book, Isaiah brings us back six hundred years before the nativity of Christ and gives us a description of this King: "For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the g...

Festive Feasting

By Skip Heitzig

When I was eighteen years old, I remember seeing a Christian band play at a rally at my secular high school. What really grabbed my attention was that they were playing my kind of music, but they were singing about Jesus and doing it with such joy.Later on when I joined a church, I also decided to join the worship team. From the beginning, I just loved the idea of using joyful, celebratory music to speak about the Lord.

A Reason for Every "Ouch!"

By Skip Heitzig

Ouch is a common expression of pain. It announces to the world that you're experiencing some sort of suffering. And when you experience suffering, you typically think about little else but your pain and how to get rid of it. But I want suggest to you that there's a very real purpose and reason for the suffering you experience.
