True repentance.

Last night’s Bible study was a look at Zacchaeus from Luke 19:1-10.
Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. Continue reading

Build a Wall; Stand in the Gap

So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. Ezek 22:30
Last time I looked at breaking down the middle wall of separation (Eph 2:14). Continue reading

Build a Wall or Tear It Down?

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, Eph 2:14
Do you know what my first thought was when I read that?
I’ll give you a clue; wall of separation.
We hear about this all the time in a different context. Continue reading

Never a Lonely Christmas

This was the first Christmas eve and Christmas Day that I’ve spent away from Linda in 32 years.
It’s the first time we didn’t have all the kids at our house for Christmas dinner and opening of presents.
It’s the first time we didn’t watch a Christmas movie together while having hot chocolate or spiced tea and eating pumpkin pie. Continue reading

The Fullness of The Time

But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, Gal 4:4
I’m late with today’s Morning Thought because I was quite busy last night and early this morning.
The “fullness of the time” had come for my daughter to give birth to her first child and after going into the hospital late yesterday, she delivered my grandson, Barrett, at 9:11 am this morning. Continue reading

The Due Date

The due date of December 20th has come and gone; as has the 21st and now it is the morning of the 22nd.
The predicting of a birth is an extremely inaccurate science.
Here I am, on vacation and awaiting the birth of a grandson. Continue reading

How we feel about Christianity

Last time I looked at how we feel and what we think about Christmas; how it comes from songs that have no bearing on the true weather or things associated with it.
Could it be that many get an idea about Christianity just from what they hear, though it may not be Biblical? Continue reading

How We Feel About Christmas

For you have perverted the words of the living God. Jer 23:36
There is a bit of romanticism and nostalgia surrounding Christmas.
Consider the songs we love to hear and sing.

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos. Continue reading

With Haste

The shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. Luke 2:15-17 Continue reading
