  • Abide In The TRUTH of HIs WORD.  It Leads To LIFE.

    Abide In The TRUTH of HIs WORD. It Leads To LIFE.

    In my last post, I talked about abiding.  Listen to this verse. “If you abide in my WORD, you are truly my disciples.  And you will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free,”  John 8:31-32 If you want to abide in HIM, you must abide in the WORD.  Why? “And the WORD became flesh, […]

    Don’t Quit. What He Promises Will Come To Pass.

    There are days we doubt what God has said to us.  There are days we wonder if we really heard Him right in the first place. I am struggling with this today. I have this cloud over me.  I am tired.  I mean, I am really tired.  I wanted to crawl into bed at nine […]

    Jesus Didn’t Say Follow Me To The Sinless, But To The Sinner

    Ever seen those Christians standing on the street corner, protesting whatever sin they are fixated on with picket signs saying, “You will burn in hell!”  or “Repent!” or “Sinner!” I don’t know about you, but if someone is screaming in my face about all the crap I have done wrong, or am doing wrong, or […]

    Is Love a Choice? Or Is It An Emotion?

    Is love a choice?  Or is it an emotion? Think about it.  In regard to family?  Friends?  Spouse? Is love a choice?  Or an emotion? On September 24, 2006, four months after Doug was killed I was in church and the guest speaker, Roger, was talking about love.  He said, “Love is a choice.” He […]

  • Will There Be Scars In Heaven?

    Will There Be Scars In Heaven?

    A question was posed to me recently, “Will Jesus have His nail scars in Heaven?” “Well, of course!” I thought, thinking of the scripture where Jesus shows His hands and feet to the disciples . . . “See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; touch Me and see, for a spirit […]

  • Ephesus, You Have Left ME!

    Ephesus, You Have Left ME!

    Jesus tells the first church in Revelation, “But I have this against you, that you have left your first love.” Ouch. When you first start to read the letter to Ephesus it sounds really good.  They have persevered, put to the test false apostles, and have not grown weary.  Good.  Great.  Sounds awesome.  Then you […]

  • The Nativity Misconception – Part 3 – The Stable

    The Nativity Misconception – Part 3 – The Stable

    Sometimes the Nativity becomes sometimes a little “magical” or “romantic” to us.  Aww, we think, the donkeys and the baby and the halo’s above the parents.  The shepherds bowing, the wise men…. But the wise men didn’t arrive when Jesus was born.   Most scholars believe they arrived at least a year – if not […]

  • The Nativity Misconception – Part 2 – The Shepherds

    The Nativity Misconception – Part 2 – The Shepherds

    We visualize the shepherds surrounding Jesus as scruffy middle age men. But where they? What we do know is that shepherds were really not the high-class of society.  They were dirty and unclean.  They were so unclean they weren’t welcome in the temple.  They “didn’t make the cut” so to speak. But something came to […]

    The Nativity Misconception – Part 1 – The Donkey

    After Jesus was born, they had to present Him at the temple.  The sacrifice Mary and Joseph brought was the offering of the poor – a pair of turtledoves (or pigeons).  If they could afford it, the law required a lamb and a dove (or pigeon), but Joseph and Mary did not have the means. […]

    Laodicea

    How do you form a relationship?  How do you keep one?  There is only one real answer to those questions.  Only one. Time. If you want to get to know someone you have to spend time with them.  In can be in the form of a letter, an e-mail, a phone call, a Facebook, a […]
