Salvation, Past, Present, Future

Walk with Jesus

Below you will see a short video that we watched and then discussed with our High school students last night. In the video Driscoll talks about Salvation, how eternity starts the moment we meet Jesus and that we are freed from the power of sin but not the presence of sin. This morning in my reading I was in Romans chapter 6, now I felt like posting the whole chapter but I...

Should I Stay or Should I Go...

LoveGodLoveOthers

...well those aren't just lyrics to an 80's punk rock song, it was the question my wife and I were praying about on whether or not she should go with me to Africa for a WVBC mission trip. God had already made it clear that I should be going but whether or not my wife should go remained unclear, so we started praying and reading. Somewhere along the line God gave me an ans...

The Man and His Wife Were Both Naked and Felt... Shame?

Word of the Day

Well I first must confess that I am not on the same reading plan as the rest of our church is on, so I do apologize that these posts probably won't be from the same passages you are in. This morning God used Genesis 3:7 to convict me of some specific "guilt" and remind me that in Him there is no condemnation. (Romans 8:1) Genesis 3:7-87 Then the eyes of both of them were...

A Faithful Servant

LoveGodLoveOthers

Numbers 12: 7 "Not so, with My servant Moses, He is faithful in all My Household." 'He is faithful…" John MacArthur says this is "a reference to Moses loyal performance of his role as covenant mediator between the Lord and Israel." God watched the faithful heart of Moses demonstrated in over 40 years of his life, as he walked a life of righteousness and purity and ...

Changed Lives

Mark 5:18 "As He was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed was imploring Him that he might accompany Him." Do you ever remember an instance when God made it clear to you that the answer to your prayer request was no? Well, sometimes it's clear and sometimes it isn't so clear. In the event with the demon-possessed man, Jesus answer was clear. The man ...

Giving My Best

Walk with Jesus

Numbers 4: 2-3 "Take a census of the descendants of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, by their families, by their Fathers households, from thirty years and upward, even to fifty years old, all who enter the service to do the work in the tent of meeting." It is easy for me to sometimes skim while reading and not always consider the meaning. In these verses God is instruc...

Eternal Life

Word of the Day

Mark 3:35 "For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother." John 6:40 "For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life…" A question; do you consider yourself to be a mother/brother/sister of Jesus? The only way for this relationship to occur is for you to come to Christ in re...

True Friends and True Faith

LoveGodLoveOthers

Mark 2:3 "And they came bringing to Him a paralytic carried by four men." There are 2 characteristics about a friend that stand out to me in this event of the paralytic being healed: 1. They demonstrated true love for a friend. They did everything they could to get their friend to Jesus. It would have been very easy for them to give up when they saw all the people blocki...

A Heart to Listen

Leviticus 25:18 " So you shall thus observe my status and keep my judgment's so as to carry them out that you may live securely on the land." Wow! The book of Leviticus is sure full of laws, rules, regulations and stuff, isn't it? However, when I think like that I wonder if I'm focusing incorrectly. According to verse 18 God is looking for people who have listening hearts...

Follower of Jesus

Pray

Mark 1:17 "And Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you become fishers of men." Whenever I read verses 16-20 of Mark 1, I have a tendency to make my walk with Jesus so complicated. I think if only I could become more knowledgeable about the Bible, I would be so much more helpful to Him. You notice in this section of scripture Jesus doesn't ask us to learn more B...

Tired? Weary?...PRAY!

Walk with Jesus

Well...its been one of those work weeks. I was at the office until a little after 10pm last night, drove 55 minutes home and got back up again to make sure I was back at the office 55 minutes away by 8am. Let me be clear, I am not complaining...but I am tired (mentally, emotionally, ect.). Six days a week can wear a person down. BUT we have, as true believers, the source o...

Name of God's Spiritual Gym "Trials"

Pray

Lets imagine, just for fun, someone wanting to get in shape by lifting weights...hold on...not the "fun" part yet. Now this person talks big about getting into shape and doesn't shut his yapper about it. So as you watch him work out (which is a little weird that you're watching but he has a big mouth), the second he puts any weight on the bar he lifts it up an inch and for...

The Glory of the Lord Fills the Tabernacle

Word of the Day

Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting,and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.Exodus 40:34 What an amazing thing to be there and see the Glory of the Lord fill the tabernacle. All the work and preparation for God's presence has been completed and God shows up. I can't help but think how that scene must have felt for Moses and the people. I try to think honest...

Written By the Finger of God... Again

Armor of God

Often times I become impatient with my kids. Phrases like, "how many times to I have to tell you..." are very common around our house. Being patient with my kids is frequently something that I pray for. Then I read this verse: The Lord said to Moses, “Cut for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and I will write on the tablets the words that were on the fir...

Show Me the Pattern

Pray

When Moses was receiving the instructions for building the tabernacle they were very detailed as to the measurements, layout, materials etc. Envious of Moses, I was wishing that the Lord would give me such clear direction in my life. Then I read this verse: Exactly as I show you concerning the pattern of the tabernacle, and of all its furniture, so you shall make it.Exodu...

Getting Seized By the Hand

Walk with Jesus

A couple weeks ago something happened to Val and I that was significantly difficult. We were put into a situation where we needed to make a decision about something that seemed impossible. After I came home from work and we discussed things, the weight of our discussion was upon me like a heavy blanket that I couldn't deal with. It was so heavy that I couldn't wait until t...
