Good fire from Heaven

What do you know about Elijah?  There are some pretty amazing stories about this guy and his exploits.  In the last post I talked about how Elijah called down “bad fire” from heaven to kill captains of the King’s army.  Jesus is the one who pointed out to His disciples that Elijah was working from…

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…

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…

“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…

God’s one-step program

Are you in desperate need of a program?  Are you just not complete without some steps?  Do you need some guidelines to feel safe?  Do you need counseling to keep you on track?  It isn’t found in a religious club.  All those answers you are looking for are found in Jesus. We don’t need crutches.…
