Success and Successful Change

When a ministry achieves what it defines as “success,” it arbitrarily builds a system around that success that promises to continue to feed and protect it. Find food, and fight off wolves. Repeat. If the ministry continues to exist, over time the purpose of the system of sustenance and safety becomes a hard old wine […]

Newness is Sweet

Our carnal, earthly selves usually hate changes in our calendar, our environment, our list of responsibilities. But, new things bring change. Yahweh’s mercy is new every day. I think that means that we don’t always recognize His mercy. It’s not just a re-wound toy that will run again for another day. It’s new. The Roman […]

Wonderful Names

Judges 13:8 (HCSB) Manoah prayed to the Lord and said, “Please Lord, let the man of God you sent come again to us and teach us what we should do for the boy who will be born.” God listened to Manoah, and the Angel of God came again to the woman. She was sitting in […]

Enter the Kingdom

Much confusion, due to not much study, exists regarding the nature of the Kingdom of Jesus. Some useful Kingdom information was shared by Peter in his second epistle (2 Peter 1:11): “For in this way, entry into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly supplied to you.”       […]

The Bible Says…

Being and Doing

Exodus 19:4-6 “‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. […]

Apologetic

Despite what your mom told you when you tripped that kid in the third grade and thought it was funny, an apology is not saying, “I’m sorry.” I should say more appropriately that it didn’t mean that. A dictionary is not an authoritative rule book on how to use words – it is simply a […]

Sacrifices

2 Corinthians 12:14-15 Look, I am ready this third time to come and visit you; and I will not be a burden to you; for it is not what you own that I want, but you! Children are not supposed to save up for their parents, but parents for their children. And as for me, […]

Whose Image do you Bear?

Genesis 4:25-5:4 And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, “For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.” And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name […]

Receive One Another

Romans 15:1-8 We then who are strong ought to bear with the doubts and fears of the weak, and not just focus on our pleasures. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to building them up. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those […]
