Judas Was Offended 

The Anointing At Bethany

John 12.1-8 Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He had raised from the dead. There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said, “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it. But Jesus said, “Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial. For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always.

In the passage listed above we see Mary of Bethany worshipping The Lord and in contrast we see Judas being offended. Despite Judas’ motives being what they were he presents his argument, “we could have fed the poor”. I’d like for us to examine this passage inorder to observe a devilish attitude that Christians far too frequently embrace.  Continue reading “Judas Was Offended “

God Helps Those Who Can’t Help Themselves 

Colossians 2.13,14 You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.

I’m sure you’ve heard the age old cliche ” God helps those who help themselves “. Although I understand what people are trying to say when they use this expression, make no mistake it’s not in The Bible. It’s not a Bible verse and I believe God left it out intentionally.  Continue reading “God Helps Those Who Can’t Help Themselves “

Recently God gave me a wonderful experience. My mother wanted to restore a vintage Airstream travel trailer. So my father and I set out to find her one at a bargain price. For over a year all three of us shopped but couldn’t seem to find a good deal. Continue reading “Restored  “

Allow God To Work At The Right Part Of You

There’s a lot more to Christianity than what most people settle for

There’s a lot more to Christianity than what most people settle for and what concerns me is that I think the enemy has a great many of us right where he wants us. Just enough religion to look good in front of others and especially on social media but it’s not the Christianity found in The Bible , it’s something else . We might want something less but God offers nothing less . You must go in for the full treatment. You must allow God to work at the right part of you , your heart.

A Place Called Your Heart

There is a place that reflects and reveals who you are as a person.

Proverbs 27.19 As in water face reflects face, so a mans heart reveals the man.

In God’s word the heart is that which is central to a man or woman. It’s the seat of your emotions. It’s where all your thoughts are plain for God to see. It’s where your character is on display. Continue reading “A Place Called Your Heart”
