Show me your glory…kabowd

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.  (2 Cor 3:18, NIV) Do you like Christmas trees?  Do you like a really decked out Christmas tree with all the trimmings?  Filled with cliché for…

We ARE the tabernacle of God.

In the last post I talked about how we are the tabernacle of God.  The symbolism of the tabernacle and how it relates to us is quite astonishing, really.  Of course you have to get past the legal categories, the good-bad filter and the desperate need for a literal understanding of the Bible.  Are you…

Who me, really, are you sure?

Yeah you! At the center of this journey is the discovery of who we are and who God is and how it all fits together.  Of course there are the legacies we leave and the lives we touch.  There are the relationships we build and the impacts we have on others.  There are the interactions between…

Why a Stumbling Block?

1 Cor 1:23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles (ESV) Why do you suppose Paul calls Jesus on a cross a stumbling block and folly?  In religious circles, of human effort and fallen Adam wisdom, it is often explained as “His morality is impossible for us to live…

Where are my demons!?!?

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.

It is more important than appearance, giftedness or…

A better story

Have you ever been called in to see your boss?  Maybe when you were little you got called into the principle’s office?  Can you hear your mom calling you from the other side of the house?  Yep that is your dad yelling “come here Jimmy.”  Or maybe it isn’t a “superior” but a “peer” who…

Where is my Hell!?!?

Have you ever been late to a party or something you had been looking forward to?  You know the scene.  You leave early so you can get a good parking spot.  You hit every light perfectly and your mind is racing with anticipation.  Then you turn the corner and “what?”  There are cars parked everywhere.…

Awakening

Our goodness or badness doesn’t determine our destiny. Our surrender to our divine nature as children of God determines our reality. Our destiny is not a destination and is not a future location but it is a revelation of God’s eternal plan. Fancy deep thinker words but let me be less obtuse. We are God’s…
