The Name

“‘Father, glorify your name.’ Then a voice came from heaven: ‘I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.’” John 12:28, ESV Last week I posted a scripture to introduce the direction this blog will be taking for the next couple of weeks (at least). I want us to focus on the glorification of... Continue Reading →

The Name Be Glorified

Today I would like simply to share with you a brief passage of scripture. My intent is to get you thinking—to prepare your hearts to receive from the Lord a renewed understanding of our relationship to the Name of Jesus. I hope to expound on this matter in the coming weeks. “…when he comes on... Continue Reading →

A Few Survivors

"If the Lord of hosts had not left us a few survivors, we should have been like Sodom, and become like Gomorrah" (Isaiah 1:9 ESV). Sodom and Gomorrah were wicked towns, chock-full of wicked people. It was so bad in these places that God sent down fire to consume them and everyone in them. He... Continue Reading →

Firm Foundation

“…if you are not firm in faith, you will not be firm at all” (‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭7:9‬ ‭ESV).‬‬ The world has tried to sell us a bill of goods. It wants us to believe that the most important thing is self-esteem. It wants us to think that we need to embrace who we are, whether or... Continue Reading →

It was, in my observation,... Continue Reading →

As it is, there are many parts, yet one body.” (1 Corinthians 12:18-20, ESV) “An autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly... Continue Reading →

Collard Greens and Jesus

As most parents do, mine encouraged me to try new foods. “You won’t know if you like it if you never try it!” Some things you just know you’re not going to like. Some things you dislike, but you grow into them. I never grew into liver. I remember one evening while in Junior High... Continue Reading →

Anxious?

A friend called me the morning after the rioting at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. He was so frantic and worked up that he kept interrupting me. I couldn’t seem to get more than two or three words out before he would begin ranting again. He was terrified that the entire country was going... Continue Reading →

It’s About How You Love!

“Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth” (1 John‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭ESV‬‬). “I love you!” Those are words we can never hear enough. But we all know, or have known, people whose actions failed to line up with their words. We are aware of people who have... Continue Reading →
