If the Lord Doesn't Want To

Posted on 09/30/2015 09:39:26 AM

Ever thought about that? The things the He doesn't want to do in your life, or even in the world in general. So often we're hoping He 'allows' us to do things; to accomplish tasks, projects, life-dreams; to enjoy a fuller life; to be safe/secure. Too often, we're really just doing enough just to get..

None of Your Busyness

  One of the very easiest ways to answer Jesus' invitation to come to Him, is; stop letting things keep you from Him! Easier said than done, I know SO well, but if you take a moment to consider that our busyness really pulls us from His invitation to fellowship with Him, so setting aside the bu..

Cure the Common Chaos

Posted on 08/06/2015 02:28:15 PM

I, for one, am a fan of predictably calm and peaceful days in my life. It may be a lofty quest, but when the timing is right, I thoroughly soak-up and savor the experience. All too often though, the day's path gets derailed, changes course, and once in a while can be found a crumpled mess on the sid..

"Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” —Luke 4:21 “Isn't it interesting,” Dr. Fred Craddock points out, “that in Luke’s Gospel the first public spoken word of Jesus as an adult, apart from the reading of Scripture is today." The reign of Christ is to..

Jesus as Messiah

Posted on 04/13/2015 09:56:59 PM

One of the most important ways in which the Bible speaks of God in both the Old and New Testaments is that he rules as king. A king who creates, though was never created.  Who doesn't defy gravity, but created it. Who reaches out to the elements of nature, but whose kingship exte..

Risky Faith

Hebrews chapter 11 reminds us that without faith there is not much a Christian can accomplish. Faith feels a lot like taking a risk.  Is being part of Christ’s kingdom risky?  Yes.  There is no 401K spiritual safety net.  Is it costly?  Yes.  We seldom have the re..

  How often are we like Abraham and Sarah? How often do we laugh when God says something to us? How often, despite our best intentions, do we doubt God? (Genesis 17:1-10, 15-19).                I think it is very common, and I thi..
