Washing feet with tears.........

The more I search for truth in the Bible, the more I am struck by things that I’ve read 100 times that meant little too me years ago, but now help me better understand who God is and what He desires.  The problem with preaching today, at least in my experience, is that we preachers tend to repeat the same sermons we preached years and years ago,  but some of us have ceased to be looking for more truth.  I am still a student still—-an apprentice—a learner.  Sitting at the feet of Jesus realizing I don’t know it all yet and I still suffer from spiritual attention disorder—-I forget the big ideas for no reason.  So as I share today,...

My Father's Business.....

. . they found Him in the temple . . . . And He said to them, '. . . Did you not know that I must be about My Father's business?' -Luke 2:46, 49   Our Lord's childhood was not immaturity waiting to grow into manhood- His childhood is an eternal fact. He is eternally the Son of God—-eternally. That will never change. Am I a holy, innocent child of God as a result of my identification with my Lord and Savior? Do I look at my life as being in my Father's house—-or a better translation perhaps, am I “being about my Father’s business?”   Jesus was where He should have been—-His Father’s house. That’s where He belonged...

Sin....

Do you know the one thing we possess that God does not?  Sin.  “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” I John 1:8 NIV.  Today’s devotion is about that thing we can all identify, and that thing which we detest in others but might be more charitable with in our own lives.   We’re born with it….we’re covered in it………it’s a part of our DNA…..we pass it on to our children….we’re surrounded by it. We have a proclivity to sin—which means we frankly enjoy sin: no one is free from the contamination and bent tendencies that are associate with sin.  No matter how mature you are or how much you...

The Will of God....

Mark 3:34-35, “Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”   So, “what” is God’s will?  I want to be a part of the family of Jesus and to please His father so much that I am called the brother of Jesus! Don’t you want that familial relationship and called a part of  the nuclear family of Jesus?  We’re known,  Jesus says, to be of the family of Jesus if we do the will of God. But like many things in the Bible, the “will of God” is not spelled out in terms of step 1,2,3 and 4!  ...

The wisest to ever live......

I hope that the these messages challenge you to consider where you are in your journey and, perhaps, how to lighten your load or find a better path. Most of my messages are for the Christian—not for those looking into Christianity. I think that there are men called to be evangelists, but a pastor is called to tend to the flock—-and to share the good news as opportunity arises.     My hope is to get our eyes onto the way things should be—-and how they eternally will be! That’s the challenge of living in this passing world and not getting too trapped within in. “If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the...
