MLK

Posted this last year, worth sharing again… “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak […]

The Great Hope of the World

The kingdom of the world has now become the Kingdom of our Lord and His King, Christ.  God has acted within history to set His king on the throne forever, amen.

Jesus on Our Side…

There is a movement afoot today, trying to return us to the faith once delivered by the apostles.  Let’s see if I can help with that during this advent season, and yes, bring glory to this newborn king.   “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬ The […]

That verse is 1 Corinthians 10:12, So, if you think you are standing firm, be […]

An Easy Yoke?

I’ve been working on this since Monday, guess I’m slowing down in my old age.  This may be something of a counterpoint to the point I made last time, about blaspheming the Holy Spirit.   Or, at least part of a solution, a cure,  to the unholy lives we lead while claiming to have the […]

Chills

Just had a random thought enter my mind during my prayer time this morning. I’ve never thought about this before, and this thought line may be totally undeveloped for now, but I’m going to throw it out there anyway. Just had a thought about this particular verse of scripture – Truly, I say to you, […]
