We Have Been Here Before!

For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. 9 Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but…

Tolerance or Cowardice?

Let me preface this by saying that it is written with as much love as I could possibly muster: Love for the Body of Christ, Love for Pastors, Love for Jesus.  There are some harsh statements, but Jesus made harsh statements.  There is some anguish – not anger – broken-hearted anguish for the Church that…

Empowered

Acts 2:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Who receives the power of the Holy Spirit?  How do they receive it?  “Repent and be baptized every one…

The Word is Alive

As a teacher of the Bible it’s important to remember that the things I study and teach are more than just principles but they are truth.  They are absolute truth.  So often I teach the concept that when we are in need of a word from God the number 1 way to hear from Him…

What is Church?

How many of you have attended a different church before your current church? What often happens is that our first church experience really sets the bar for every other church we ever attend. Most of the time we have the attitude that what our church does is right and anything anyone else ever does is…

Prostitution and the Bride of Christ

Imagine, that you are engaged to be married to the love of your life.  You buy your fiancé every great thing they desire.  Rings, jewels, expensive dinners and cars.  Every whim is granted to them.  You love them with every fiber of your being.  However, it turns out that this isn’t enough.  You learn that…

You are small, your foe is big; but your God is bigger still.

As you begin the day remember the ever present battle waging around you. The God of the universe has fought and won the war, but the enemy of your soul is stubborn. He continues to fight battles. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you…

Talk is Cheap

A phrase made famous by so many over the years was uttered by Christ nearly 2,000 years ago.   John 14:15 (MSG) says: If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you.   It isn’t enough in this day and age to just say something, you must put actions to your words.  It’s…

Kill Your Idols

If you enjoy reading this blog, could I ask you to post a link to http://www.stevebeaulieuministires.com on your facebook or other social networks?  Thanks.  I love you guys and appreciate your commitment! ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Dictionary.com defines Idolatry as: excessive or blind adoration, reverence, devotion, etc. It gives the following synonyms: obsession, madness, mania. I find it strange that Idolatry is synonymous with the word…

How To Worship Appropriately.

As a worship leader, I find this quite amusing.  Before getting offended, realize that this is a video created by a church to point out our tendency to get caught up in our actions and forget about the one who is supposed to be receiving.  We often worry so much about whether or not we…

Who’s Your Daddy?

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship,created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. EPH 2:8-10 (ESV) You’ve heard it said that He is your Father….

Jesus and Doctor Who

Over the past couple of months I have become what some would called obsessed with Doctor Who.  Why?  I don’t know.  It’s not for everyone I suppose, but there are a few things that I absolutely love about the show.  First of all, the actors are just plain lovable.  Secondly, who doesn’t fantasize about seeing…
