THE FIX

“Everyone who believes in him is made right in God’s sight—something the law of Moses could never do.”  Acts 13:39 What was once so pristine, shiny and beautiful was now splattered and covered in blood. The Alter and Ark of the Covenant had the blood of sheep, goats and birds on them. It was a bloody mess, but that mess was necessary and saved lives. Hebrews 9:22 says that, “In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.” All of this would change one day in[…]

THE BEST LAWYER MONEY CAN’T BUY

“Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf.” Hebrews 7:25   Shrouded in mystique and exclusivity the US Supreme Court decides cases that impact American’s day to day lives like none other. And, among all of this mystique is an exclusive group of about 65 lawyers that are said to be among the top attorneys in the land. Considering that the court only hears about 75 out of 10,000 petitions they receive annually, these “top attorneys” are supposedly at the top of their game[…]

POWER AND EFFECT

“So the message about the Lord spread widely and had a powerful effect.”  Acts 19:20   As early as two years before a presidential campaign, candidates start coming out of the woodwork in droves. Some have name recognition, while others may not. There are certainly candidates among the field that have good intentions, but often times there are just as many that do not. The line of distinction is simply based on one’s sincere desire to serve versus a selfish quest for power. Unfortunately, when, and if, the wrong politician gets elected to office, the people and society suffer.  God’s intent[…]

DOUBLE ANCHORED

“So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us.”  Hebrews 6:18   The salt air and warm sun set the stage for what I was hoping to be a relaxing kayak fishing trip. I knew the area pretty well and figured if I could anchor my kayak near enough to the channel, I would cast into the area with the hope of reeling in[…]

WHAT DAVID KNEW

“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.”  Psalm 23:6  We’ve all had those seasons in life when we were going through something and it seemed as if God was a million miles away. Maybe a health battle, a battle with depression, a personal or business financial crisis, or even a strained relationship that brought us great concern. Sometimes in those seasons, even if we never verbalized it, we may have thought “Where is God in all of this?” David was one who could certainly[…]

THE REST OF THE STORY

“When Priscilla and Aquila heard him preaching boldly in the synagogue, they took him aside and explained the way of God even more accurately.”  Acts 18:26   He had such a distinct voice and way of telling a story that could captivate his listening audience. For decades, Paul Harvey spanned the airwaves across America shedding a different light on topics, people and stories of interest. As a kid, I found myself listening intently, trying to figure out who he was talking about, which he would always reveal at the end of his one-to-two-minute segment with the phrase, “And now you know[…]
