NO WORK ZONE

Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.” John 6:29 “According to StaffSquared.com, a global poll conducted by Gallup has uncovered that out of the world’s one billion full-time workers, only 15% of people are engaged at work. That means that an astronomical 85% of people are unhappy in their jobs.” I realize that doing the same thing day after day can get tiresome, but if you haven’t already, my hope for you is that you find the work that is fulfilling to you. After all, if you’re going to spend all[…]

SIX SCOOPS

Then Boaz said to her, “Bring your cloak and spread it out.” He measured six scoops of barley into the cloak and placed it on her back. Then he returned to the town. Ruth 3:15 Sometime ago, a picture posted on Reddit showing a bowl Kellogg’s famous Raisin Bran cereal. The picture showed only a sparse supply of raisins which caused an uproar among some cereal lovers. In response, BusinessInsider.com set out to investigate, leaving those same cereal lovers feeling a lot better. What they discovered was that when compared to the raisin to cereal ratio, there was certainly enough[…]

HER FIRST TRUE LOVE

“But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” John 4:14 She was the “queen of failed relationships.” She knew it and so did everyone in town. That’s why she came to get her water in the heat of the day to avoid all the morning well gatherers. She had felt their glairs and heard the gossip. She had been through five marriages and the guy she was living with was probably on his way out too. Why, because no doubt she had been[…]

ALL AND YOU

“O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures.” Psalm 104:24  Do you ever stop from time to time, and think about the vastness of God’s creation? From the sun, moon, high mountain peaks, to the depths of the sea, it’s all so truly amazing!  All of His creation, and every living creature in it, both big and small, speaks to His majesty and glory. Psalm 104:24-25 illustrates this well by stating: “O Lord, what a variety of things you have made!     In wisdom you have made[…]

THIS MUCH

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16  One of the fond memories I have with my kids as they were growing up was asking them, “Do you love me?” They would reply with a resounding, “Yes!”, to which I would then ask, “Well how much do you love me?” They would stretch their arms apart as far as they could go and say, “This much!” Thinking about it now just warms my heart. If you ask the Father that same question,[…]

WALK IN THE LIGHT

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:5 From the beginning of time our adversary has done everything in his power to snuff out the Light. As far back as the Garden of Eden, he knew that a Light would one day come into the earth, a Light, so powerful and bright, that it would change the world forever. That Light did come, and His name is Jesus Christ. John describes Jesus as “the light of men.” Have you come to know this Light? And are you allowing this Light to guide you along[…]

DISAPPOINTMENT DETOUR

 “For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.” Psalm 100:5  Two of Jesus’ followers were headed in the wrong direction. Things had not worked out as they had hoped, and now this disappointment had detoured them back to their home in Emmaus. Jesus, however, though He kept them from recognizing Him, came to their rescue as He came and walked alongside them on their seven-mile journey. On the walk, He opened up the scriptures concerning Himself as the Messiah to them, causing their hearts to “burn within them.” They begged Him to stay[…]

ROLLED AWAY

“They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.” Luke 24:2 Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome were all on a mission. They wanted to take care of Jesus’ body, giving him the proper burial they felt He deserved. It’s obvious God was behind all of this because He wanted them to be the first to announce that Jesus was indeed the resurrected Savior. The only thing standing in their way was the “very large stone” that the Roman garrison had rolled over the opening of the tomb. How would they, three women, ever be[…]

THE SIMPLE GOSPEL

Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” And the soldiers gambled for his clothes by throwing dice. Luke 23:34  In an age where trends and fads can often rule, we may feel the need to “change it up” from time to time when it comes to the Gospel, thus complicating it. But, keeping it simple is imperative when it comes to the Good News and nothing is simpler than the Good News summed up in the story of Barabbas. As the religious leaders of Israel demanded that Barabbas be released, and Jesus be sentenced[…]

NEW NAME, NEW SONG

“Sing a new song to the Lord! Let the whole earth sing to the Lord!” Psalm 96:1  What’s in a name? A lot, depending upon who, and why the name is given. In Bible times for example, “last names,” which really weren’t last names in the way we think of them, were given to people based on where they were from. For example, when we say, “Jesus of Nazareth,” Nazareth was the name given to Jesus that let everyone know where He was from. In more modern times, like the 15th through 18th centuries, people were often given names based on their[…]
