The truth will set you free

Help me in my unbelief.  That is what the man cried out when he wanted his son healed.  Here is a bit from that passage: Mark 9:22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” 23…

“Pick The Red One” again

In “Pick The Red One” I told you a story about spread sheets and cars and Jesus. Go take a look for yourself. After some comments from readers I want to revisit the story briefly. When Jesus said to pick the red one, there was not a red car on the spread sheet. There were…

Fractured

Are you a fractured person?  Here is one definition of fracture: A fracture is the (local) separation of a body into two, or more, pieces under the action of stress.  I believe the enemy is in the fracture business.  He has been trying to divide us and break us from the very beginning.  He lied to…

The Glider

When I was a kid I used to build models.  Maybe you know the kind.  They consisted of a bunch of plastic pieces stuck in a plastic holding frame that you twisted out and glued or snapped together.  If you got too impatient and wrestled all the pieces out first you could have a real…

Knowing

When we begin to see the goodness of God our eyes are opened to a greater revelation of Him.  We see Jesus on the cross as more than an event.  We see God in Christ.  We see the nature of God expressed as a man.  We see how a loving God came to set us…

Love and Respect

God told me to learn what this means: “I can serve you and respect you and still be God.” That may really mess you up in your thinking.  You might ask these questions: “But isn’t God more concerned about what I do?  How could He serve me and respect me when I get it all wrong?  What…
