Does your ax head float?

ax head

I was drawn today to the story in 2 Kings chapter 6 which describes Elisha with men who were cutting down trees at the Jordan River to make beams for dwellings. One of the men was cutting down a tree and the iron ax head fell into the water. The man cried out becaues the ax was borrowed. The next verse (six) describes Elisha this time not by name, but as "the man of God". ...

Humility - That's a Tough One!

Walk with Jesus

Good Morning Blog Land! Please forgive me as I was assigned to start at the begining of the week and I've failed you. I'll try to catch up... I love the word of God and His ability to use and apply any passage to our day, either directly or through someone else. This morning I read Proverbs 18, verse 12; "Before destruction, the heart of man is haughty, And before honor i...

Devoted to God's Word

Word of the Day

Thirteen years ago I had a hunting accident that caused me to be unable to umpire baseball games, something that I had done for several years during basketball off-season. Due to a new teaching assignment and some renewed strength found through a physical therapist, I started calling baseball games again. I soon saw a problem developing. Due to my pride and arrogance , I f...

Just like Israel

Word of the Day

I actually wrote this nearly two years ago, but never posted it because the Spirit prompted me not to. I've made a few edits from the original draft and I hope it is encouraging to you. Growing up in the Church I've heard the account of the children of Israel wandering in the desert for forty years probably more than forty times. I don't know if you're like me, but their ...

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...

By Whose Interpretation?

Word of the Day

I had the pleasure this morning of meeting with a group of men who have a heart for Jesus and a desire to study His word. We discussed how to study the bible and talked briefly about interpretation. A great question was raised. How many interpretations of God's word are there? We discussed 2 Peter 2:20-21, "Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture cam...

Self Check

Word of the Day

If you are reading this on Thursday morning, March 19, 2015, you are enjoying the rain. I love rain in the desert and there is something about waking up to cloudy skies and rain. Thank you Lord! Sometime today, during your quiet time or your time in the Word, read Galatians 5:22-23 for a quick "self check". Are you living by the Spirit? Does it show? Would your kids, spou...

"I am Your Salvation"

Word of the Day

I was reading in Psalm today, specifically 35, and those words grabbed my attention: "I am your salvation" (vs 3). Just before those words, the Psalmist says: "Say to my soul, I am your salvation". He's writting about fighting, spears, stoping those who pursue, etc, so I'm guessing it is a plea for comfort and reasurrance. A reminder, not to our intellect, but to the v...

A Simple Plan

Word of the Day

If you are a follower of Jesus, it is likely that right now you are experiencing a trial of some kind. Jesus and Paul said that it would be this way. It could be various trials, sickness, fatigue, feelings of despair or hopelessness, grieving for the loss of a loved one, persecution, the effects of someone else's sin or maybe even your own. These things happen in this worl...
