Joyful Singing – Psalm 100

Dr. Dan Hayden • There is nothing more pleasant than the sound of an infant squealing with delight. The giggling laughter of small children is like heavenly music and the songs of angels. Psalm 100 is the “Thanksgiving Psalm.” In the first two verses, we are given...

Know – 2 Timothy 3:1

Dr. Dan Hayden • I have often been asked, “Do you think that the events of the last four months have a prophetic significance?” And my answer is – “Yes – Absolutely!” The Bible has much to say about what we are seeing and hearing and experiencing in these days. In 2...

Last Days – 2 Timothy 3:1

Dr. Dan Hayden • Are we living in the “Last Days”? Well, many Bible teachers think so. This is the first day of the second year of the new millennium – and one thing you can say for sure is that we’re closer to the Last Days than we’ve ever been before. In the last...

Lose Heart – 2 Corinthians 4:16

Dr. Dan Hayden • We live in a bail-out generation. “I give up!” “I quit!” People are bailing out of relationships, bailing out of responsibilities, and running from their problems instead of dealing with them. Well, why don’t you resolve this year that you’re not...

Lovingkindness – Psalm 100:5

Dr. Dan Hayden • Some time ago I saw a bumper sticker which said, Practice Random Acts of Kindness. I guess that means to be kind just because it’s a good thing to do… not a bad idea. There is a Hebrew word in the Old Testament that expresses the wonder of...

Lovers of Self – 2 Timothy 3:2

Dr. Dan Hayden • Self-centered behavior is the most destructive influence upon interpersonal relationships imaginable. It eliminates concern for the other person’s welfare and sucks the life out of any meaningful communication. It is the first sin of the universe,...

Magnify – Philippians 1:20

Dr. Dan Hayden • We live in a day in which people love to exalt their heroes. Whether it’s Michael Jordan or Michael Jackson, those who worship others tend to magnify them. They do that literally when they enlarge their picture and plaster it up on large billboards —...

Making Melody – Ephesians 5:19

Dr. Dan Hayden • One of the things I don’t like about New Age music is that so much of it doesn’t seem to have a melody. I’m probably old-fashioned, but I like songs that have a definite melodic structure – not those that wander all over the place and never seem to go...

More Than – 2 Timothy 3:4

Dr. Dan Hayden • Actions often speak louder than words. I know a guy who says he loves his wife, but he spends more time and energy on his boat than he does with her. I guess he really loves his boat more than he does his wife . . . at least that’s the way it appears....

My People

Dr. Dan Hayden • When the people of New York City rallied with such great courage and determination in the aftermath of the Twin Towers disaster of September 11, 2001, I was deeply moved and proud – for they were my people. You see, I was raised in New York, and for a...
