Yes or No?

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.  (ESVST) Are you a “yes” person or a “no” person?  What motivates you in life?  Is it a “yes” or a “no?” How about God? …

Known by Him

You have heard the phrase “it isn’t what you know but who you know.”  That is actually from the Bible.  Anyway, in the last post (Thank you for the gospel) it was all about “who she knew” and not “what she knew.”  What faith.  What belief.  What assurance.  Check it out if you haven’t yet.…

Flesh and Spirit: part 4

Flesh and Spirit will always be with us.   If you haven’t been following check out the first Flesh and Spirit post here.  I’ve spent some time contrasting the two but the reality is both are a part of us.  It isn’t a war, it is a reality.  We have our flesh that is learning a…

Upside Down

I must warn you this post is pretty strong.  I apologize for those who are offended but I will not apologize for the goodness of God demonstrated by Jesus on the cross, proven by a risen Jesus and realized in us with power by the Holy Spirit. Sin is a bad thing, right?  This is what…

Three Doors

I see things so differently now.  Before I felt lost, without purpose, floundering in my hurts and hangups, desperate to find “the more.”  Now I have purpose, finally feel free and get to live the life of Christ.  I may have been “born again” years ago, but only now do I feel alive.  Much of…

Believing Bridge

Do you ever feel like who you are is not who you want to be?  It is like you are living in one reality and looking at another across a great divide.  People will say “I do this but know I should be doing this.”  It is an identity problem.  In our carnal thinking we…

Survival or surrender?

Here is a question.  As a born again believer what has passed away and what is new?  That’s right, all things.  What happened to your body of sin or old man?  That’s right again, it died.  Are you a slave to sin or righteousness?  You got it, righteousness.  How about your status, alive or dead?…

Glory to Glory?

Think of someone you know doesn’t like you.  Of course everyone likes you since you are a child of God, so just imagine there is someone out there who doesn’t think highly of you, better?  Now you hear from your friends that this person said you were awesome.  What would you think?  Maybe something like…
