Life is Easy

Life is Easy Did you know life really isn’t hard at all? Life is easy. When we try so hard to control life, life is hard because life can’t be controlled. But when we know life can’t be controlled, life is easy because we are along for the ride. Then we see the ride has a…

Do you SEE me?

I and the Father are one…Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me (Jesus) The lie of separation is why Jesus came.  We humans believed we were separate from the divine.  In this separation mindset we built societal structures, mythologies, religions, philosophies and more that assumed God was…

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…

Jn 12:44-50 Jesus Came to Save the World 44 And Jesus cried out and said, “Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. 45 And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may…

Allowances for His goodness

I was listening to a David Hogan message this morning.  I am always astonished by the humility of this man.  He may sound abrasive and speak with divine confidence but he is like a little kid when it comes to the power, mercy and Grace of God.  He was telling a story about a teenage…
