Then the people answered, "Far be it from us to forsake the LORD to serve other gods!  - Joshua 24:16 (NIV). Most of us would readily agree that we would not forsake God to serve other gods, but how much time do we really spend with God?  I don't mean reading our daily Bible chapters to cross them off our list.  I don't mean praying...

Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. - John 6:57 (NIV). In this Scripture, it says we will live if we feed on Jesus.  It doesn’t mean to literally eat Jesus.  In John 1:14, we are told that Jesus is the Word made flesh.  In other words, Jesus is the Word of ...

He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. - John 1:10 (NIV). The world did not recognize Jesus.  Sad to say most of the world does not recognize Jesus even today.  They don’t recognize what Jesus did for us or how significant what He did on the Cross really is.  Without Jesus’ death on ...

I had drifted away from...

And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. - Mark 1:11 Did you know that God is well-pleased with us as well?  Is it because we are special?  No, even though we are to Him.  Is it because we say or do the right thing?   No.  He is pleased with us because once we have accepted Christ, we...

Heal Our Sight

Posted in People on Wed, Jan 23 2008 - 08:41 AM

“Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.” - Matthew 20:33 (NIV) These two blind men wanted their physical sight.  But we should be like these blind men in regards to our spiritual sight.  We must ask God to open our eyes and our hearts to the things of the Spirit.  Although these things mean nothing to the logical thinkers of this ...

There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD. - Proverbs 21:30.

"Have I Loved"

Posted in People on Sat, Jan 19 2008 - 09:08 AM

As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. - Romans 9:13  (KJV). I find it interesting that God used the name Jacob here.  God could have said, “Israel have I loved.”  After all, God had renamed Jacob.  He gave him the name Israel. I believe He chose to call him Jacob here because God wanted to emphasize the fact that...

What Are You Holding On To?

Posted in People on Fri, Jan 18 2008 - 09:28 AM

My pastor taught on meditating on the Word of God (Joshua 1:8).  He recalled that on several occasions, he muttered a Scripture to himself while he took a walk.  As he did, God gave him revelation about that particular Scripture. While I washed my hair a couple of weeks ago, I muttered III John 2 to myself.   God stopped me and started ...

Condemnation?

Posted in People on Mon, Jan 14 2008 - 09:32 AM

You forgave the guilt of your people—yes, you covered all their sins. - Psalm 85:2 (NLT). Isn't that a wonderful promise?  God has forgiven our guilt and covered all our sins.

Total Dependence

Posted in People on Tue, Jan 08 2008 - 09:23 AM

To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

Posted in People on Sun, Jan 06 2008 - 08:17 AM

“If, while we seek to be justified in Christ, it becomes evident that we ourselves are sinners, does that mean that Christ promotes sin? Absolutely not! - Galatians 2:17 (NIV). When we speak of not being under the law but being under grace, people think that means that we permit people to sin. We are not under the law. Christ...
