The Closing Door

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead, he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9 It’s a strange conflict we humans live out – we all know that everything will die but we live as though we willContinue reading “The Closing Door”

Day and night they never stop saying: “‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.” Revelation 4:8 I don’t know about you but as a “baby Christian” I would go entire days if not weeks without thinking about God.  Without making any decision based on what God wanted ofContinue reading “The Everlasting God”

Retire From Self Care

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 “I believe Jesus died to deliver ourselves from ourselves.  How many of us are just fed up being ourselves all the time?” Joyce Meyer The darkness, fury and despair of the young woman sitting next to me grew with each passing minute.  We wereContinue reading “Retire From Self Care”

The Unexpected Warrior

When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.” Matthew 3:21 During my senior year of high school, I decided to try and live out my dream of becoming an astronaut.  I met with an Air Force recruiter and was excited to take offContinue reading “The Unexpected Warrior”

Step 2: Humble Servant

Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” John 21:15 Since the resurrection of Jesus, Christians seem to have been in an interesting battle.  The concept of how we are saved has led to many sermons, books, and even paper nailed to church doors.  The prevailing answer in the modern church age is, of course, that we are saved byContinue reading “Step 2: Humble Servant”

First Love

But you must return to your God; maintain love and justice, and wait for your God always. Hosea 12:6 I’ve mentioned before that I’m a “doer.”  In the Bible, Martha is my spirit animal.  I can so easily picture myself cooking and cleaning all day, getting ready for Jesus to come for dinner.  Then while He is at myContinue reading “First Love”

Justice Will Be Done

Zion shall be redeemed by justice,     and those in her who repent, by righteousness. But rebels and sinners shall be broken together,     and those who forsake the Lord shall be consumed.

His Last Amazing Words

If you were to Google “Jesus’ last words” what you would get is a long list of references to Jesus’ last words on the cross and their meaning.  And while those last words are very important, if we think those were His actual last words recorded in the Bible we miss the amazing glory of whoContinue reading “His Last Amazing Words”
