Bearing The Name

“You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain….” Exodus 20:7 (ESV) Recently, as a part of my research on the Name, I came across a podcast that really piqued my interest. The premise asserts that perhaps we have mistranslated the above quoted commandment. Or, at the very least, we have... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

Can These Bones Live?

“The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD and set me down in the middle of the valley; it was full of bones. And he led me around among them, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and behold,... Continue Reading →

We take comfort in the light, but still we are curiously drawn to the shadows. Shadows are grainy, indistinct, and distorted versions of reality. They provide an image, but... 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 →

The Little Foxes

“Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom.” (Song of Solomon 2:15, ESV) We American Christians, slowly but surely, have begun to unstitch the threads that hold together our faith. Rather than taking pains to reinforce that stitching, we make little daily choices that threaten... Continue Reading →

A Fresh Look At A New Thing

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19, ESV) I have heard this verse used a many times since the beginning of my faith walk with Jesus. It was, in my observation,... Continue Reading →
