Others-Centered

James 1:19 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Blue letter Bible study insights a. Slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God: In light of the nature of temptation and the goodness of God, we must take special care to…

Doubt

The 1st chapter in the book of James talks about how we as Christ followers are to believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. THat man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord he is a DOUBLE_MINDED man, unstable in all he does. WOW DOUBT is a big issue.. REAL TALK…. at times I fight WORRY! I…

Worship: Not Just A Sing-Along

Well, if it’s not a sing-along, what is it?For me, Worship can be expressed no better than the Psalmist wrote in Ps 100:2-4: Come before His presence with singing” and “enter His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise. But how do we do that? Think of it as: An offering. Heb. 13:15 . . . “offer the sacrifice of praise” An obedient act. Mt. 4:10 . . . “you…

Is Your Seed Still In The Barn?

Recently, while in my everyday Bible reading, I found myself in the book of Haggai. Yes, Haggai! His most quoted passage – and I paraphrase – you don’t have much because your pockets have holes in them! God was upset with His people for neglecting Him. What got hold of me was Haggai 2:19 where God asks: “Is the seed still in the barn?” Those words were jumping off the…

WE ARE LEFT WITHOUT EXCUSE

For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. (2 Peter:1:4) In this one verse there is so much divine mystery present: the promises of God, escape from the corruption of this world, and then finally something truly…

Disney Magic vs Kingdom Power

Disney Magic vs Kingdom Power By Kay Schultz This time of year I start thinking of Christmas shopping and I got the idea to give the family a gift of a Disney day. The kids love Disney World and the adults appreciate the vision of Walt Disney – his plans for the parks down to the most minute detail. My mind started rolling. I found myself comparing the Magic Kingdom to…

The Good Shepherd’s Management Plan

The Good Shepherd’s Management Plan By Kay Schultz Recently I was comparing Psalm 23 with John 10. So many similarities – and so much to know about sheep and the shepherd. Then the thought came to me that David was a shepherd so he knew a thing or two about shepherding when he wrote Psalm 23. But Jesus was never a tender of sheep so why the leap to calling himself the…

Know Your Calling?

Are you confused about your calling? Asking yourself if you have one? Is it real? Well, don’t feel alone. Many followers of Jesus have the same dilemma. Gleaning some specifics from a paper by Robert and Pamela Crosby, on staff at Southeastern University, may help dispel some of the clouds of confusion. First, they looked at how the Word uses the term call or calling. In…

Follower or Fan?

This past week I was thinking a lot about how Jesus washed the disciples feet and left them in shock! The fact that Jesus — Messiah, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Son of God, my Saviour – would humble himself, kneel down and wash dirty, smelly feet is mind blowing. Why would He do that? What was His purpose? What did He want us to learn? A little while before…

Don’t Run From the Light

I got my girls “faithGirlz” devotionals we are doing together. This was the verse we read tonight and the sentiment behind it in my own words… The verse today was Genesis 3:8-9 New Living Translation (NLT) 8 When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man[a] and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God…

Smoothie-Making Can Be Ugly

In between the time God calls us and the time we step into our destiny, there is a season that can be called the “process.” The apostle Peter’s journey is an example of this. From when Jesus said come “follow me” (Mt. 4:19) to when He also said “When you are converted, strengthen your brethren” (Luke 22:32) there was the process! – being converted from self to…

Game Changers

Inherent throughout the Bible is a theme of change. It is clear that God expects change. Ever since the Fall – when Adam and Eve ate that “apple” – God has expected change in us. (By the way, have you ever wondered why Apple’s logo depicts an apple with a bite out of it? I have. No answer, yet!) Change. Grow. Learn. Turn. Transform. All Bible themes. Change is defined as…
