Holy Week - Day 7: New Life

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. -Galatians 2:20

How are we supposed to view our present life of faith?

This passage tells us to look at our present lives as servants of the Lord…

Holy Week - Day 6: Good Friday - What's Good About It?

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. -Isaiah 53:5–6

Our human minds can’t…

Are you in the harsh winter season in your prayer life?

This time of the year, we become aware of the spring season, especially in the areas where we experience the four seasons. It is exciting to see the buds on the trees that have lied dormant and the bulbs popping out of the ground almost overnight. Spring reminds us of new life.

 During the winter, many areas have experienced harsh freezing weather. However, as spring…

Holy Week Devotional - Day 5: Maundy Thursday: This Is Love

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. -1 John 4:10–12

The word “Maundy”…

Holy Week Devotional - Day 4: Aged to Perfection

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! -2 Corinthians 5:17

What is one of the main themes that keeps recurring in the faiths and literature of the world? What is that longing in the human heart that never goes away regardless of the time or place?

It’s the…

Morning by Morning, March 28 - "Jesus Said, 'I AM.'"
 
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Be high and lifted up, here in my heart and every moment of my day.  ...
 
"Then the high priest stood up before them and asked Jesus, 'Have You no answer? What is it that they testify against You?' But He was silent and did not answer. Again the  high priest asked Him, 'Are You the Messiah,…

HOPE IS PERSONAL

Our hope, God's hope is personal. In his 1939 Christmas message to the nation King George VI read Minnie Louise Haskins’ poem, God Knows, given him by his daughter, Elizabeth.

“I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year,

‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the…

Holy Week - Day 3: Children of God

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace. –Ephesians 1:7

The apostle Paul reiterates here the essence of the Gospel message: It is only through the sacrificial death of Jesus (“his blood”) on our behalf that we can say we’re forgiven of every sin.

The word…

Holy Week Devotional: Day 2 - The Doorway Into Life

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. –Hebrews 12:2

If Jesus did for us what we couldn’t possibly do for ourselves, what…

Praying Evil or Being Kind?

I once had a person who disliked me very much and tried to discredit my every action. In fact, at times, they were quite proactive in their attacks on my family and on me. How should I have prayed for such a person? The human side of me wanted to pray evil on them, to ask God to just remove them from my life. In fact, David, in his psalms of judgement, often called “the imprecatory psalms,” repeatedly asked God to punish his enemies. As an example, David once prayed to God about, “those who…

Holy Week: What Does It Mean For Us?

Lies, false witness, denial, slander, scheming, injustice, rejection of truth, hypocrisy—human sin and daily life are played out vividly in the events of Holy Week. I recommend reading Matthew, chapters 26 to 28, either by yourself, together as a family, or with your friends.

In Matthew 26:1-5, we read: When Jesus had finished saying all these things,…

Will I Ever Sing Again?

I waited patiently for the Lord;
 he turned to me and heard my cry.
 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
 out of the mud and mire; 
he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. 
Many will see and fear the Lord
 and put their trust in him. -Psalm 40:1-3

Is your…

Have you Heard about the Day of Prayer for Grandchildren?

The Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) recognizes the desperate moral and spiritual climate our grandchildren must navigate in a world hostile to truth. Satan has launched an aggressive attack on all fronts using media, technology, education, social influences, and political pressures to desensitize and cloud the boundaries of truth and righteousness that hold nations and…

ANCHORED IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD

Where is your anchor fixed? In my first post in this blog I referred to the storm in acts 27. Let me call your attention to something a little unusual in that account. Still in the night after they had discovered the danger of a coast they could crash into, some sailors sought to escape the ship. They lowered a boat on the pretense of laying out anchors from the bow. They had already cast four anchors from the stern. They needed four anchors to slow their…
