The Crown 

Matthew 27.29 They twisted together a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and placed a reed in His right hand. And they knelt down before Him and mocked Him: “Hail, King of the Jews!”

A while back my father took our entire family to London England on vacation. It was one of the funnest times of my life. While we were there, we checked out The Tower Of London, where The Crown Jewels are on display. It’s definitely the type of thing you’ll never forget seeing. I didn’t know it was even possible for a diamond to be as big as The Star Of Africa. It was truly unbelievable.  Continue reading “The Crown “

The Great Sin

Isaiah 14.13-15  You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north;I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’But you are brought down to Sheol, to the far reaches of the pit.

There’s one sin everybody is guilty of. It’s the most evil sin of all. It’s the essential vice. The main ingredient in a sinful nature. It leads to every other sin. It’s how the devil became the devil. It’s the utmost evil. Continue reading “The Great Sin”

Finding Refuge 

Psalm 63.1 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

This life and this world are marred by sin. We’re constantly experiencing the effects of it. We see it in nature. We see it in people. We see it in ourselves. Often it feels like it’s everywhere.  Continue reading “Finding Refuge “

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.
