The Ultimate Fool!

THE ULTIMATE FOOL! (a conversation I just had with someone) The God who created you and the God that you will one day stand before, He is GOOD, JUST & TRUE. The Bible calls it a foolish thing to look at the creation of the world and to declare that there is no God. The evidence stares us in the face & yet so many of us refuse to acknowledge Him or His wonderful works. The Bible also says that the reason we refuse to acknowledge Him, is that we love our sin. I don’t care to win a debate about God, because it’s not up for debate, not for you and not for me. We have all broken His commands. We know in our hearts that lying is wrong, stealing, adultery, using God’s name in vain. Yet we have all done it knowing it was wrong. Jesus said that hating […]

DEATH TO “YOLO” – You Only Live Once

“This new Generation of teens is referred to as “YOLO” (You Only Live Once). The enemy of our souls would love for us to believe that we would only live once. The truth is that for those who are enslaved to sin and without freedom from Christ there is no life at all. Temporary relief from the pain of this world is all they can hope to have. Have you ever heard someone say “I feel like my life is a roller-coaster? That’s what you call living for the moment, and when the moment provides temporary relief and distraction from the reality of sin, bondage and life’s pain, they feel good. Inevitably that feeling does not last long and they usually find themselves in the pitts either looking for the next feel good thrill to fill up the thirst tank or they wish they could end it all. Our culture […]

Should Their Parents have Used Birth Control?

I’m gonna BLOW some Steam here. Yesterday I posted a picture on Facebook of some children who were starving, partnered by a pic of well fed Americans with their arms stuffed with products from a store (likely a blow out sale). Some of the comments, well I guess you could say they got me a little worked up! Here’s my vent: It bothers me to hear the words “they should have been on birth management or birth control” in reference to ANY children, starving or not. Children are not livestock and God has a purpose and a plan for every single one. These little souls are eternal and any Idea that “They would have been better off if their parents would have put a cork in it” is damnable thinking. What is the heart of God? The heart of God isn’t “They shouldn’t have been born under these conditions, but […]

Do it all for the glory of God

Grasping The Gospel: The other day we were at costco trying to get some shopping finished in a hurry and had grabbed some books for the kids to look at while we scurried around. As we were checking out, Max (our son) asked if we could buy the coloring book he had been looking at. Normally we would go through each page and see if it was appropriate, but for some reason we agreed to to purchase it and away we went. Our blunder that could have caused our little one to stumble turned out to be for the Glory of God, both through our repentance and Max’s developing discernment. The very next day Max who is one week away from 6 years old, was coloring in this new prize book of his, after he had spent about 30 minutes on one page with a lot of excellent detail, he turned to Danae […]

To Judge or Not to Judge?

Judge Not, Lest You be Judged We hear it all too often “Judge Not, lest you be Judged”, well let’s compare all scripture together and see how it fits. 1 Corinthians 5:11-13 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of BROTHER if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.” Observations: “I wonder how many people we would have left in our churches TODAY? Is this not a command? If so why don’t we practice it? Test yourself … Sexual Immoral? Lust? Fantasy? Wondering Eyes? Fornication, Cheating? Porn? …. Or GREEDY, consumed by your […]

Happy Easter!

Opening Thoughts: Here’s our first blog post, Danae and I are launching into some things we feel God is calling us to. Writing daily Blogs on our devotions is one of them. We trust that God will speak to you through the words we say. I do not know where you stand with Christ, so I decided to write this note and pray that the right people read it and are blown away by God’s irresistible grace! To God be the glory! Who Is Jesus: Jesus is everything for you, or He is nothing for you. He wasn’t just some good teacher, or a good example, He’s not a quick fix for your messed-up marriage, or a lottery ticket for your financial trouble, or just some medical potion to cure your disease! He is the Christ, The Savoir, The LIVING GOD… Who died once and for all! He put to […]
