Like a Game of Hot Potato

Walk with Jesus

I just finished reading a book by Francis and Lisa Chan called You and Me Forever. It's a marriage book but reads nothing like what you would think a book on marriage would be. Instead it might be the best best thing I've read on how to accomplish the mission other than the Bible. At the the very end Francis makes this statement to sum up all that they had written: "Like a...

Saved to Serve

Word of the Day

Mark 1:30-31 Now Simon's mother-in-law lay ill with a fever, and immediately they told him (Jesus) about her. And he (Jesus) came and took her by the hand and lifter her up, and the fever left her, and she began to serve them. When Christ saves or heals us he does it for a reason far beyond ourselves. He saves us so that we might serve him. This is exactly what we see whe...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

Walk with Jesus

"In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there." Mark – Mark 1:35 "But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.  For even the Son of Man did not come to ...

Birthing Hips

Word of the Day

Usually giving birth is thought of as a good thing with a few notable exceptions (remember that Bill Cosby episode where he dreamed he was giving birth to a giant sub sandwich?). One of those exceptions is listed in James 1 when it talks about giving birth to sin. James 1:14-15New American Standard Bible (NASB)14 But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed...
