God’s Mission

But Jesus’ mission was never a physical one. His mission is still in effect today and it affects every single one of us. It is US who are spiritually poor, captives, blind, and oppressed. Jesus came to give us the good news that He can give us sight and set us free!

God’s Gifts

It is good to be familiar with the Scriptures. That is why I read through the Bible cover to cover every year and have my nose in it every day. That is why I am trying to encourage others to do the same. Getting into the Bible has changed my life for the better in so many ways. The deeper I immerse myself into it, the more it transforms my life. It is truly life to my soul.

Would You Follow?

But how many of us would be willing to just blindly follow God’s lead? Would we be willing to pack up in a moment’s notice without having any idea where we are going or how long we are going to be traveling? (How ever would we know how many outfits to pack?!) Would we follow? Or would we grumble as the Israelites did in Numbers 11?

Take Courage

Trolls have always existed. David described them right there in Psalms 35. This is nothing new. Take courage in knowing that we are suffering nothing that believers haven’t experienced before. We must strand strong and continue forward without cowardice against those who tell us we are “anti-science” because we believe that life begins at conception and that God created two genders. Don’t fear the “godless jesters” who mock Christians for our belief in Jesus and accuse us of believing in fairy tales. They cannot harm our souls. God is the one who “rescues our soul from their ravages” so that we are able to “give [God] thanks in the great congregation” (publicly) and “praise [God] among a mighty people.” (v.18)

Our True Home

We are created to long for God. Our souls recognize that we are incomplete. Most of us spend our lives running around trying to satisfy that emptiness within us — through money, relationships, power, material things, adventures, etc. But if we’re honest, we never quite get there. Nothing ever completely satisfies. Even things that might make us feel ecstatically happy at first eventually fade and bore us.

The LORD Bless You

The angels worship God. They love Jesus. How happy they were to announce His birth. They are waiting, just as we are, for His triumphant return. “Glory to God in the highest. And on earth peace among people with whom He is pleased.”

Come, Lord Jesus!

The timeline is interesting. Abraham lived approximately 2000 years before Jesus. David live 1000 years before Jesus. And here we are 2000 years later, waiting for the remaining Biblical prophecies to come to pass. They most certainly WILL come to pass some day. And God seems to like to do things every thousand years or so…. Come, Lord Jesus!

Blessed Is She Who Believed!

It is impossible to understand how wonderful the Lord is until you dip your foot into His glory. You can’t just peek in from the outside and get it. His goodness must be tasted to comprehend. But once you get a taste of it, once you glimpse His amazing love, really feel it, you will want more. The first step is the only one that requires blind faith. Once you’ve begun the journey of seeking Him, little by little He reveals Himself to you. He slowly removes the human blinders. The deeper you journey into Him, the more He will spiritually bless you with joy, wisdom, understanding, peace… you will “not lack any good thing.” (v.10)

WAIT!

And that is what we are determined to do, as long as it takes for God to guide us to His new home for us. Our souls are waiting for the Lord, as David did in Psalm 33. We are waiting for His faithfulness. No matter how long this season may be, we trust in His holy name. And we will “WAIT!”

Choice

Did Jesus have to die or not? Did He really rise from the dead? Or is there wiggle room here? A lot of us want to plant our feet in both camps to make everybody happy, to be nice, to be comfortable. But we either believe in Jesus or we don’t. Jesus IS offensive. We are either willing to stand with Him on the offensive side of the fence or we aren’t. I believe it is important that we examine our own hearts and figure out where we stand.
