All the Best to You

He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noticed how they would choose the best places for themselves: “When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, don’t recline at the best place, because a more distinguished person than you may have been invited by your host. The one who invited […]

Proper Government

I have, since being a teenager, had the perhaps arrogant idea that if something is popular there must be something wrong with it. It influenced my choices of music, of religion, clothing, art, and everything else, I suppose. Democracy is touted as the best government ever on the earth. Some have said of it, though, […]

Calling on the Lord

Abraham didn’t need to have Yahweh’s phone number – God usually called him. Much of our lives should be the same way – contact is made with Yahweh because we are answering Him. Our worship is rightly a response to Him. Our lives are rightly obedience to His call regarding our true identities and our […]

Being a Sweet Aroma

But thanks be to God, who always puts us on display in Christ, and spreads through us in every place the scent of knowing Him. (2 Corinthians 2:14-15 from Holman Christian Standard Bible ©®) The scent of an organic item can be good or bad. Bacteria stink. Some flowers even stink. Most fruit, when mature, […]

Every time I consider the life of Helen Keller, I am struck by the difficulties that had to be overcome by Anne Sullivan, her teacher. Helen became deaf and blind at the age of 19 months. When Anne was brought into her life to train her, Helen could not grasp for a while that every […]

Holy Husbandry

It is very liberating to reach a place of faith and trust in which we become able to say to the One Who exhaled a few words once and breathed the stars: “Dearest Lover of my soul, I commit myself and my property and my future and my relationships to You: for better, for worse, […]

Power to be You

Part of the power it takes to be the truest version of you comes from within: The Holy Spirit inSpiring you; Your Heavenly Father extending to you His DNA Believing what He tells you about yourself and your future Part of the power it takes to be the truest version of you comes from without: […]

Hoping in His Calling

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the perception of your mind may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the glorious riches of […]

Types and Anti-Types

In 1 Peter 3:18-22, Peter wrote about Noah’s experience in the ark he built, calling it an “antitype” of baptism. Many things we see or experience in the life we have in Christ are types or anti-types. Learning about some dynamic of the Kingdom of God is frequently a preview of an experience the next […]
