“Every knock is a boost!” boasted one Moishe Rosen, founder of Jews for Jesus and a giant in Jewish missions in the 20th Century. I had the privilege of knowing and learning from Moishe, as I did two missionary stints with Jews for Jesus totaling 8+ years. That quip was a reference to the catalytic nature of opposition, persecution, hostility, and even rejection – as it relates to our …

In 1987 the Lord graciously saved me, delivering me out of the Kingdom of Darkness and into the Kingdom of Light. He has blessed with abundant life and eternal life. And for all He has done for me, I am eternally grateful. Yet, among His manifold blessings bestowed upon me, there is a blessing that is challenging for me to receive – it is the blessing of rejection due …

The “Me” generation in the United States referred to the baby boomers (Americans born during the 1946 to 1964 baby boom) and the self-obsessed qualities that some people associated with them.  The baby boomers were dubbed the “Me” generation by writer Tom Wolfe during the 1970s. Wolfe and other contemporary writers commented on the rise of a culture of narcissism among that demographic, the younger generation in that day. …

“I can’t get them to see the light. But you know what? I’m going to keep working on them.” Perhaps you’ve heard this sentiment expressed by others or you’ve entertained this kind of thought in relation to the one who has not yet trusted in Christ. I don’t know about you, but for me, one of the real challenges of the evangelistic endeavor is to see lost people as …

I was a professional tennis coach for fourteen years prior to entering full-time vocational ministry in 2003. And I can assure you no beginner ever took a lesson or series of lessons with the expectation of becoming an accomplished player in a day, a week, or even a month. To play well requires some basic instruction and lots of time and practice. Spiritual conversations are very similar to playing tennis – …

While a missionary to my Jewish people in New York City, I met regularly with an orthodox Jewish man in Brooklyn I’ll call Ben. I’d go to his apartment once or twice a month and share the truth claims of Jesus to be the Messiah. One day Ben raised a very intimidating objection. He said, “Larry, Jesus can’t possibly be the Messiah due to the curse of Jeconiah!” What …

“So, then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.”  James 1:19 In my years as a missionary, pastor, and witness for Jesus Christ, I’ve had the privilege of verbalizing the wonders of Jesus and the gift of His salvation in a variety of venues, both formal and informal. Yes, I do enjoy talking. But ministering the gospel to the person who …

“How are you doing?” We hear and use this pleasantry all the time. And often the typical response is, “I’m fine, thank you.” But there are times when that seemingly benign question can open up deep meaningful conversations about the most important issues in life!

One morning while enjoying breakfast with a pastor friend named Luke, he shared something about his devotional life that moved me – something simple, yet profound and powerful. Luke said everyday he includes his morning prayers with this: “Lord, today please give me divine appointments, ministry opportunities and open doors.” I have seen God answer that prayer in my own life. And in regards to engaging in spiritual conversations …
