Tarry in Jerusalem

 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass, while he blessedContinue reading “Tarry in Jerusalem”

Covet Christ

Paul the Apostle told the Corinthians to “covet the greater gifts.” I certainly don’t want to discourage anyone from seeking gifts of the Spirit. However, I cannot help but think about something else that is true, and that is the fact that all things will one day pass away as they make room for theContinue reading “Covet Christ”

Maybe this is the fever that has wracked my mind today talking, or the maybe it’s many weeks without adequate rest, or perhaps it is the heart issue I’ve had since childhood that seems to be taking its toll on my body. Maybe it is the years of mental anguish. Or, maybe it is heartacheContinue reading “I Would Rather Be Weak in Flesh and Strong in Spirit”

Jesus Wept Over Jerusalem

37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall notContinue reading “Jesus Wept Over Jerusalem”

“He who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.” Who is he?

2 Thessalonians 2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.Continue reading ““He who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.” Who is he?”

Considering Proverbs 10:19-21

19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. 20 The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. I like the contrast between verse 19Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:19-21”

Blessed are Those That Hunger and Thirst After Righteousness

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. – Matthew 5:6 As Christians, our righteousness comes from the blood of Jesus first and foremost.

Blessed are the Meek

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. – Matthew 5:5 As Christians, we are made joint heirs with Jesus Christ.

Confessions of a Fearful and Unbelieving Servant

Last Tuesday I wrote about my experience with receiving the Holy Spirit. A few regular readers dropped off after that, and I expect as much. I understand how it feels to be confronted with Christian ideas that are outside of our comfort zone. It is frightening and sometimes shakes our faith to the core. IContinue reading “Confessions of a Fearful and Unbelieving Servant”
