Who is He really?

So much of what Jesus did for us is related to our identity.  So much of our walk in this life is about His identity.  Maybe it is bigger than that simple observation.  Maybe it transcends observation altogether and it is the core of God’s message.  Maybe everything we think we know (apart from Jesus)…

Mercy-seats and boxes and Sin

I didn’t go to Bible college.  I haven’t been to seminary.  I don’t have a double double degree in systematic Theology or Divinity or anything like that.  I love to listen to those really smart people who have those degrees.  I am instead a rocket scientist, retired pilot and part-time philosophical thinker (no accreditation).  So…

Believe in the name of Jesus!

Matt 18:6 “And everyone who commits an offense against one of these little ones who believe in me, it were profitable for him that a donkey’s millstone would be hung around his neck and he be sunk in the depths of the sea.” (Aramaic Bible in Plain English) Jesus is the revelation of God.  The…

Faith Test

I was thinking about why there seems to be all this schizophrenic, bi-polar, old-versus-new reasoning when it comes to understanding the nature of God.  To every born-again child of God, it is clear that Jesus is love and is God’s expression of love.  Jesus came to reveal the true nature of God to us. When we…

A Child is Born

God with us Luke 2:10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (ESV) From the beginning, the…

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…

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…

Hands lifted high

The Bible has lots of funny (strange) stories.  Some of them I just tuck away in the “I don’t understand but it is OK” box and someday I’m sure I’ll get some kind of revelation.  I had one of those stories jump out of the box for me this week.  It is actually a beautiful…
