Being Available to Hear God

“I do not call you servants anymore, because a servant doesn’t know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have heard from my Father.” (John 15:15) When I think of God communicating with us, I think of this verse. One of the keys […]

God’s Voice: The Natural

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days…” (Acts 2:17–18) My father was […]

God’s Supernatural Voice

“Let us walk with decency, as in the daytime: not in carousing and drunkenness; not in sexual impurity and promiscuity; not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to gratify its desires.” (Romans 13:13–14) Monica loved her son and prayed every day for his […]

Vox Dei

“Then he said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the Lord’s presence.” At that moment, the Lord passed by. A great and mighty wind was tearing at the mountains and was shattering cliffs before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the […]

Seek and Share

“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”” (Matthew 2:1–2) Years ago, when my kids […]

Waiting for Christmas

“Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.” (Luke 2:25) I’m not a philosopher, so not sure why, but waiting seems easier for people now than it used to be. The average age of […]

Believe this Christmas

“But they had no children because Elizabeth could not conceive, and both of them were well along in years.” (Luke 1:7, CSB) When Chris and I started a family, Christmas became very important to us. We love tradition and seeing our kids learn to love those same traditions. Now we’re empty nesters and sometimes the […]

Present in Bethlehem

This Sunday begins Advent. That word, advent word comes from the Latin verb “to come.” It’s church shorthand for Adventus Domini…the coming of the Lord. As a kid, I thought it was the name of a Christmas countdown calendar that had chocolate hidden in little secret doors. But, it IS a type of countdown. In […]

Thanksgiving

“Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel went up and saw the God of Israel…they saw God, and they ate and drank.” (Exodus 24:9–11) What is the best way to get to know someone and become friends? Before our lives became so busy, that was easy to answer: sitting down […]

Grace and Truth Together

“…But while the son was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion. He ran, threw his arms around his neck, and kissed him.” (Luke 15:20) Imagine, an elderly, respected man, a pillar of the community, tucking his long robes in his belt and running to welcome his son […]

Truth about Truth

“They [the deceived] perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved…and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:10, 12) When Jesus walked the earth, John tells us he was full of “grace and truth” (John 1:14). We’ve been […]

The Ongoing Battle

“I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do…As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. […]
