The Journey with Ron Moore

Do you desire to be a godly mom or dad and just need some scriptural guidance to help you along the way?

Children are a gift from God. Sometimes we doubt that. Especially when parenting isn’t going the way we thought it would.

They are the people we work with. They are friends and family. Many are living lives of quiet desperation, hiding a secret from the world. Some have come out of the closet. All are people whom God loves.

Marriage is a package deal. The Bible details the three key ingredients of that package and why they cannot be successfully separated.

How do the children of divorce process the confusing and conflicting emotions that tear at their hearts? What can you say to them that will restore a lost relationship and keep them close to God?

Any way you slice it, divorce is painful. It cuts deeply into both partners and even deeper into their children.

What is marriage, really? What great purpose does it serve? What should your marriage focus on in order to find that purpose? And what do you do when that bond is severed?

What makes sex biblical, beautiful, and fun? More importantly, how should we honor it and experience it?

Inside your home, nearer than you may have imagined, the greatest threat to your marriage is lurking.

The foundations of our culture are under siege. From the intact family to sexual expression, society is chipping away at God’s design for stable homes.  Even the Church is groaning under the onslaught.

For the last twenty years, my wife Lori and I have participated in the March for Life in Washington D.C. When our children entered the sixth grade, we started taking them with us. We live in Pittsburgh, so the bus pulls out at six in the morning and we are home around midnight. It means a day from work and out of school, but we believe that is a small… Continue Reading…

Today many people are living in fear. For some, the fear was brought on by post-election disappointment or disillusionment. Some are filled with anxiety as cable news commentators proclaim that our country is near economic collapse. Some are terrified at the news coming from the Middle East. But we are not the only generation living in uncertain and challenging times. Since the Fall of Man in Genesis 3, this world… Continue Reading…

Can you imagine a salesman who never sold a product … a surgeon who never performed a surgery … a trial lawyer who never tried a case … an interior decorator who never decorated the interior of anything … a teacher who never taught … a preacher who never preached … a congressman who never wrote one piece of meaningful legislation? Maybe that last one is a bad example, but… Continue Reading…

When you hear the word “hospitality” it is often in terms of a person having people over for dinner capped off with coffee and dessert. That’s a great thing to do, but biblical hospitality goes much deeper. Someone has well said: Hospitality is not having someone into your perfect home; it is allowing someone into your imperfect heart. The word translated “hospitable” is made up of two Greek words, philo… Continue Reading…

Joshua, the Old Testament leader of Israel, was given a heavy assignment. Following the great leader Moses, God charged Joshua to lead Israel into the Promised Land. Joshua knew the challenges and risks. Seven groups of people inhabited the Canaan and there would be many battles to fight. Right after crossing the Jordan when Joshua looked at the walled city of Jericho, he had to be asking: How in the… Continue Reading…

Believers know that following Christ involves sacrifice. There will be battles to fight. We want to know if the battles will be worth it. Joshua knew that they would not enter the Promised Land the next day or the day after that. There would be many battles to fight. Seven groups of people inhabited the Promise Land. When it was all said and done Joshua conquered thirty-five cities. Husbands and… Continue Reading…

Recently I used a story from Philip Yancey’s book, What’s So Amazing About Grace, in a sermon. The story was told by a pastor who had a prostitute come to him for help. She had been “renting out” her two-year-old daughter in order to support her drug habit. In the story, the pastor asked her if she had gone to church for help. “Church!” she said, “I was already feeling… Continue Reading…

The right thing to do is always to do the right thing. Obedience is always the path to take. The road of obedience always leads to the desired destination. But…let’s face it…obedience is hard. Even Jesus learned obedience “from what he suffered” (Hebrews 5:7-8). I have listed below several life situations when obedience is hard. I’d love to hear your response to these and your stories of when obedience has… Continue Reading…

As Christians, we are going to be faced with doubt, fear and discouragement. We live in a culture of greed. There will be those who threaten us, intimidate us and try to distract us from following hard after Christ. How do we deal with these things that try to tear us down and paralyze us? Here are five things we need to do.   Understand your position in Christ. In… Continue Reading…

Everyone hears voices … voices trapped in our mind…voices of criticism…voices of ridicule…voices aimed to hurt. The voices you hear may have come from the lips of a parent, teacher, coach, spouse, child or friend. These voices spring from our memory when we least expect them and can knock us for a loop. Sometimes the voices are not trapped in our mind but projected from the person standing next to… Continue Reading…
