I spoke at the
ORU Homecoming Banquet
in November, 2019.
It was such an honor.
This is my legacy!

on a recent "The Good Life" on
the Christian Television Network
with Bob and Jane D'Andrea.



          To discover the true, lasting and genuine “peace that passes human understanding,” you must embrace a lifestyle of trying to be like Jesus.  No, you are a human being, so it is silly to think that you would be perfect, but Jesus wants you to try to be like Him.  To become a Christian is to “be like Christ”.  Sure, we live in a very imperfect world.  But in your heart, you can commit to be a follower of Jesus.   No matter what you’ve done in the past or what circumstances you find yourself in, Jesus urgently wants to have a relationship with you.

          Becoming a Christian does not mean some celestial glow and lightning in the sky happening when you pray to commit to follow Him.  It is a process.  It is an hourly process.  Like a baby, you take little steps at first; then you walk, before you can run.  It is a step-by-step process in your growing experience.  Every Christian, no matter how many decades they have been called a “Christian” is still growing. 

God can “speak” to you every day.  Even though you might not understand everything at this very moment, please follow these simple steps below.  It is God’s plan for YOU to escape whatever razor’s edge you are living on.  Lasting peace only comes from Jesus Christ.  It is not money, or fame, or power, or any material things that have lasting importance, it is “peace with your Maker” that brings that peace deep within your soul.

“What must I do to be saved?” is the cry of men and women.  God’s Word---the Bible---provides clear answers.


And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.”

--Luke 18:13

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

--Romans 3:23


Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”

--Acts 3:19

“...except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” --Luke 13:3



That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
                                       --Romans 10:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

--1 John 1:9


Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”

--Isaiah 55:7


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

--John 3:16

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”                                --Mark 16:16



He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”                --John 1:11-12

Making this decision to follow Jesus has positive eternal consequences for you!  You can make that decision this very moment!  It is so profound, so lasting, yet in most cases, so simple.  Pray with me right now:

          “Lord Jesus, I know I have sinned for which I am sorry.  I’m beginning to understand that You died for my sins and I ask for Your forgiveness.  Even though I don’t understand all that You are about, I do promise to follow You by praying, reading the Bible and trying to do better in my life.  I receive You now as my personal Savior and invite You to direct my life from this day forward.  Amen.”

          Every moment we face trials and problems.  By accepting Christ into your heart, it does not necessarily insulate you from new problems coming, BUT---being a Christian means that you have a supernatural friend, the God of the universe, who will walk with you through these trials and tribulations, every minute of every day.  God is at work on your behalf even while you sleep.  God wants to you have a new life of peace.  God wants to give you the peace that passes all human understanding. 

Now, look up.  Keep your head up high.  Don’t look at the problems you face all around you.  Look at your supernatural God who is the great problem-solver.  Your battles in life are now not only yours.  The Bible says that “the battle is the Lord’s”.  Keep close to Jesus and His Word.  The Bible is not some stuffy book that is quoted a couple of times on Sunday mornings.  It is an inspiring, vibrant word for your life every single day.

          By faith, you can receive what God has already done for YOU!
