While an infinite God has infinite attributes, there are some that we must understand to truly know and obey Him.
Table Talk With Mike & Nancy is weekly podcast. Each episode is full of nuggets that Mike and Nancy have learned along the way. Check out some of our past episodes!
Many who consider themselves “Christians” these days seem to miss the point—they want their ticket to heaven punched so they’ve added Jesus to their already-full lives, like buying an insurance policy. Or they want the best this life here has to offer, expecting Jesus to “reward” them for signing on with the blessings of success […]
A few weeks ago we celebrated our freedom in this country—but that got me thinking about exactly what IS “freedom”? Freedom from what? To do what? The answer could be different depending on who you ask, and for committed born-again followers of Christ, it will be something entirely different, even incomprehensible, for non-followers or even […]
Abide is not a word that comes up in our conversations much these days, if at all. But it’s a word that is critical to understand, because it’s a sign that we are genuine believers in and followers of Christ. You see, we were never meant to acquire salvation and then put it in the […]
You’re a sheep—at least you are if you’re a true follower of Christ. We all are, and many times we act just as stubborn and stupid as sheep can act. But the good news is we aren’t just left to our own supposed self-sufficiency, because Jesus called himself our Shepherd. And He’s not just any […]

Independence Day is just around the corner, when we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence that was the foundation of our country. Since then, every July 4th in this country we celebrate our “independence”, even embracing the spirit of independence as our national identity. While our founding fathers wanted independence from the tyranny […]
Sometimes when I’m watching the news or reading articles on the “feminization” of our society, and see the behavior of those who should be acting like adults but instead resemble spoiled kids on sugar, I realize that apparently no one is teaching them the lessons generations before them have learned. Add in the seeming impotence […]
Many of us are addicted to self-reliance. Doing things our way—praying fervently for God to move, then saying “Thanks, God—I can take it from here.” But that way doesn’t turn out very well, does it? If it works at all, it leaves you in an arid, sterile, “religious” place, where, like the Pharisees, you go […]
