The Word and whisps

The Word of God is so much deeper than any man made strand could ever reach.
Far more stout than the most well taught could teach.
It's truths far more rich than uncountable sands upon every created beach...
shhhhh! It's in the stillness He speaks! Do you have His Spirit?
Been marked by His blood?
Ever journeyed to the depths at the foot of the cross?
Have you met with surrender and found humility to treasure?
Basked in this splendor?
Found a pure Love so tender?Dare say that you live apart from this tender touch that will both brake and remake as gentle as whisps on the wings of a dove?

Friend of God

Fun conversation with Jayden this morning. Jayden: "Wait, what!? God can be our friend?Me: Oh yes He isJayden looking confused... so I explain it like this since his Dad is sitting with us. Yes, God is our friend but kinda like your Dad, he's your friend, but he's the boss 1st. He cares about you and wants you to do right so when you do wrong he corrects you. He still likes to play and have fun with you too. It's the same way with God except He's way bigger so He's always with you. He cares about you and wants you to do right. He will always be the Boss 1st.Then I told him about Abraham. "...Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God." James 2:23I hope our chat has blessed & encouraged you. On a personal note, do you consider God your friend?

Building up?

Building up?"They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage. So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved." Isaiah 41:6-7Ok, on the surface, this seems like great encouragement, right? They're telling each other to "be of good courage" which means 'be strong'. What are they building though? Actually, they're literally creating idols! Nothing like a good Ole fashioned pat on the back! After all, the world loves it's own. We, in Christ, can learn from this too. While the world encourages & promotes evil and detestable things, we must build up one another too in the Lord, in His ways and in His Word! "Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour amo…

Compromise and cancer

Wow! Eye opening! While listening to the Lord He showed me quite the comparison for the modern church. It's so blatant and obvious yet sick and sly! Many churches today correlate growth with "increase", right? For many it's about numbers... membership, attendance, salvations (repeating a prayer), baptisms, dedications and so on. "So what?" you might say, "they kept record at Pentecost and when Jesus fed the multitudes by miracles". Yes! They did. But was it the same meaning behind it then as it is now? Let's take a look! Today congregations all across America and even many around the world have adapted to "business structure" from planning, meetings, Finances, name it! Being in business for nearly 12 years, it's quite easy to see. Many say, "that's not so bad, it all works to the good". Does it though? Whose good? Man's good or God's good? Going deeper, not once did Jesus and His disciples "plan". …
