God is Satisfied

The plan of God is so simple, yet so beyond our humanity to fully comprehend. It is multi-layered, the peeling away of layers granting us an un derstanding of an additional glorious part of His plan.  Paul refers to it as the “mystery of Christ.”  God is constantly willing to reveal to us another level …

“Dipped In Blood”

“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.  With justice he judges and wages war.  His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns.  He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.  He is …

Get Out of the Boat

A while back, during the worship service in our church, the Holy Spirit spoke to me about the time the disciples saw Jesus walking on the water.  I was reminded that there were 12 disciples.  Why didn’t the other 11 venture out onto the water with Peter?  I thought of 3 possible reasons: Fear. Perhaps they …

No Gifts For You

You are so ready.  You’ve been looking forward to this moment all week.  The table is set with the finest china and crystal.  The aroma of the meal fills the house, energizing your sense of expectation.  You know I’m coming to visit, and you can’t wait.  In all likelihood, I am bringing you a gift …

The Fire of the Holy Spirit – a Divinely-Inspired Thought

The following is a divinely-inspired thought that came to me as I was driving to one of my son’s soccer games last Fall.  I recorded it into my phone as I drove and have transcribed it here.  I hope it encourages you. “The fire of the Holy Spirit consumes the flesh.  The sacrifices in the …

“Yeah, but…”

Have you ever heard, “I believe in God’s grace, but…” Or, “Yes we are new creations, but…”  It’s like taking the most magnificent part of the Gospel and saying “Yeah, but.” There is no “but” in the Gospel.  Minimizing the truth is a safe way to keep from teaching it. Chances are it’s not something …

“Get Them Calves Outta Here”

I remember as if it were yesterday. Sitting across from a pastor friend I had served for years, and still respected and loved deeply.  We were in Selma, NC eating Chinese food for dinner. I had just recently heard the truth of the finished work of Christ, and was excitedly sharing with him the cool …

Eyes to the Blind

Job 29:15 – Job in defending himself said as part of his discourse, “I was eyes to the blind and feet to the lame.” This verse can brand our hearts with God’s intention for us. He wants us to be “eyes to the blind and feet to the lame.” Eyes to see His love & …

Because the King Says So

2 Samuel 9:8 says, “Mephibosheth bowed down and said, ‘What is your servant that you take an interest in a dead dog like me?’”  Through the years religion has taught us a response not unlike Mephibosheth’s response.  It teaches us that, even though we’re in Christ, we are still evil, and we’re unworthy.  In essence, like …
