The Christ Spirit

We all have the “Spirit of Christ” and can wake up to that reality. The Christ is in us and it is our certain expectation of magnificence and great beauty. The Christ is all in all. Did you know all those statements are in the Christian Bible? Christ means anointed or chosen one.  The question…

He meets us where we are

John 12:44-46 Jesus summed it all up when he cried out, “Whoever believes in me, believes not just in me but in the One who sent me. Whoever looks at me is looking, in fact, at the One who sent me. I am Light that has come into the world so that all who believe in…

Christus Victor

I think most people are familiar with deja vous.  You walk into a room and are doing something that you feel like you have done before or seen before, etc.  I believe the Holy Spirit often speaks to us in a similar way.  You just know that you know something.  Sometimes it is a “word of…

Godly Judgment

In a number of posts now I have talked about how God is all about relationship.  In “Spoons and Steaks” and “More steak please” we saw how the law is not a means for justification because the law is the wrong tool and justification is relational not behavioral.  Simply said the law is the wrong utensil…

Godly Justice

God’s justice is not fair.  It really isn’t. Now that I have your attention…Let’s see if we can “see” justice differently.  What does Godly Justice look like? Did you know that my problem is God’s problem.  My issues are God’s issues.  My sinning is God’s opportunity. Rom 5:8 but God shows his love for us in…

Mediation with a purpose

In the last few posts I’ve hopefully revealed a mediator or advocate or intercessor in a new light.  In Mandatory Mediation I tried to show how the Holy Spirit is interceding for us in prayer.  In Mediation from Above I hope you see how much God is really for you and in no way is…

THE six step program

I have asked myself before and people have asked me this question: “If all this is true why do I still have XYZ in my life?” XYZ = pain, suffering, broken relationships, hurts, hang-ups, addiction, pride, hopelessness, guilt, shame, anger, strife, division or whatever else is your “thorn.” (Check out Infamous Thorn) I’m going to…

“Ti emoi kai soi?”

2Co 1:19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. 20 For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to…

There He is, right there

1 Corinthians 1:7 That you are not [consciously] falling behind or lacking in any special spiritual endowment or Christian grace [the reception of which is due to the power of divine grace operating in your souls by the Holy Spirit], while you wait and watch [constantly living in hope] for the coming of our Lord Jesus…

Sojourn Supplants Stoics

This is the third of a “series” about seeking an appointment with Jesus today.  We have looked at two words that have been historically associated with a second coming.  I contend that these words and concepts were intended for now, in our walk now, not for some future by and by.  Religion has pushed the power…
