“Jubilee’s Calling”

God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s blessing.  This is a Biblical principle that we see running all the way through the Scriptures.  The mandate for our “individual and corporate calling is found in Matthew 28: 18-20, where our Lord said –

“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

“Relational Faith”

When Jesus began what we refer to as “the Lord’s prayer” He used these words – “Our Father in heaven.” What does the word “Father” suggest to you? To me it says that our God is a relational being. He wants far more than us being religious. He wants a relationship with us.

We were created in the likeness and the image of God. That being the case, we are called to a right relationship with Him and then with each other.

1 John 4: 21, “And this commandment we have from Him: “that he who loves God must love his brother also.” Our God is infinite, personal and triune. The Father, son and Holy spirit live together in perfect union and communion.

“Are You Interested?”

Did that question catch your attention? I’m sure you are interested in many things, but my real question is “Are you really interested in God’s ultimate intention for your life?” Now you probably are wondering, “What is God’s ultimate intention for my life?”

I am so glad that you asked. The answer is found in God’s word – Romans 8:29, “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first born among many brothers.” God’s ultimate intention for each of us who are Christ-followers, is that we be “conformed to the image of His Son.” What does that mean? How does it happen?

“Finishing Well”

Do you know where you are going in your life?

Do you know what it will take to get you there?

How will you know when you have arrived?

What would you like to be remembered for?

I have often been impressed with the way the Apostle Paul summarized his life in: 2 Tim. 4: 6-8

“Rising Above the Storms of Life”

Storms have certainly been in the news a lot lately. There have been many losses as a result of the storms. Some have lost their lives. Many have lost their property. Probably many have lost items they treasured. From many reports, it will take years to rebuild and recover.

You have probably noticed that I have used the word “loss” and “losses” several times. Dr. Norm Wright, who has experienced several losses in his life wrote the following in his book, “Recovering from Losses in Life.” Like a silent conspiracy, we seem to have an unspoken agreement with others not to talk about our losses.

Yet with each and every loss comes the potential for change, growth, new insights, understanding and refinement – all positive descriptions and words of hope. But they are often in the future, and we fail to see that far ahead when we are in the midst of our grief. What great insight Dr. Wright shows in those words.

Scriptures to Strength Your Faith

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Cor. 10: 3-5

“As is my word that goes out from my mouth; It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills will burst into song before you, and the trees of the field will clap their hands.” Isaiah 55: 11-12

How Do You View God?

John McArthur tells of a student who said to his pastor, “I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t

believe in God.” The pastor replied: “Please tell me about the God you don’t believe in.”

That student began to describe a God who is vengeful, unfair, arbitrary, a cosmic ogre who delighted in watching people stumble through life in search of meaning and direction. After listening to that students’ portrayal of God, the pastor said,” I don’t believe in that God either.” It is so easy to develop a warped view of our God based on our circumstances. We can wind up with a pretty jaded view of God when we define Him by our circumstances.

“The LORD Jesus Christ”

“Jesus” means Savior.

“Christ” means Anointed One.

“LORD” means exactly that – He is our Sovereign LORD and Ruler.

He is our Anointed Savior and LORD. (Dwell on that for a while.)

One of my favorite Bible teacher’s is Harold Willmington. He has written a number of books. The one in front of me right now is, “Willmington’s Complete Guide to Bible Knowledge”. This volume is on the ‘Life of Christ.’

Let me encourage each of us to make much of Jesus and to rejoice in Him.
