I was reading in George W. Bush's new book DECISION POINTS where he spoke of the people who aspire to being near the President or to at least have access to him. He said that the reason people want the President's ear is that there is great power for those who have it. I immediately thought of the most powerful person in the Universe: Almighty God, and the unlimited access He has given to those who come to Him through Christ. We Believer's in Christ have the opportunity to boldy enter God's Presence to ask for anything we want. Jesus Christ said that we can "Ask anything in my name" and we will be granted our request. (See Matthew 7 and John 12, 13, 14). It is clear. We have God's Ear!!! What power awaits those who believe this and use this awesome access? Let us find out!!!

I turned 60 on my last birthday (Oct. 24) and had a great day. It was Sunday, so we spent the morning and evening at church worshipping God together with the great people that I have pastored for over 15 years (and some new ones too). Also with me was my wife of two years, Ruth, who made my day even more enjoyable with her joyful spirit. I can say that I am a blessed man and have lived a blessed 60 years. I don't feel this old and I am always shocked when I look into a mirror. I think it is because my inner man is renewed day by day through the indwelling Holy Spirit. He makes me feel young and alive. For this I am thankful! I have the most wonderful family any man could ever want and some of the greatest people on earth are my friends. Thanks be to God!
