  • The Spirit of Truth

    The Spirit of truth will come. Jesus was telling His disciples as much as He felt they could absorb about what was to happen, but then He promised them the help they would need from the Spirit of truth. And the Spirit of truth has come, and is available to us today.   Read More...

  • Experiencing God's Wonder

    People are hungry for experiences of God’s wonder and grace!  “If only I could see a miracle.  I just want to feel God’s presence!  I need something tangible to get hold of.” I agree wholeheartedly.  I believe we should desire not only to know about God, but also to know God.   Read More...

  • Stay Connected

    How very true it is that if a branch is not connected to tree, it will certainly dry up and die! As we walk our dog in the desert, the evidence of this is all around us. To think that we can live and grow on our own without being connected; first to the One who gives life, and then to others who support and encourage us, is foolish.   Read More...

  • I Entered Their World

    What an amazing transformation had taken place in Paul!  He had been one of the most legalistic Jewish Pharisees, but when he was transformed by the power of the Good News and when Jesus began to live in him, he did something that Christ himself had done – he entered the world of others. Especially in the early days, it must have been a real challenge for Paul to eat with Gentiles, and to attend events and participate in things that were so foreign to his upbringing and experience!&nbs...  Read More...

  • He Reveals His Heart, Will, and Nature

    Jesus seems to have to say over and over to those following Him, that His purpose was to show the way to God. He says that if we love Him, He will love us and reveal His heart, will, and nature to us. I believe that is still what God desires for us: to continue hear His voice and obey.   Read More...

  • Humble Hearts

    Humble hearts or proud minds?  Among the Christ-followers in Corinth there were some who felt they were real “pros.”  They were free from idol worship, they had taken all the classes, they knew the “deeper truths” and they could sail right through the “Is this right or wrong?” and “Is it OK to do this?” issues without batting an eye. Paul pointed out that: 1) Nobody has it all figured out but God.  He’s the only one w...  Read More...

  • He Knew Who He Was

    Jesus was confident in Who He was, and what He had been sent to do, so He did not struggle with serving His disciples in the simple act of washing their feet. I believe that I as understand more and more who I am and what my purpose is, the less I will need to prove myself to others or struggle for attention or position. Lord, knowing who I am as Your child, and what Your purpose for me is, is important in helping me to live a life of grace and confidence. Please continue to help me with th...  Read More...

  • Keep It Simple

    Time is of the essence.  No big surprise that this should be the section of today’s reading that grabs my attention.  With my birthday coming up soon, I am more than ever aware that time is of the essence.  Time is the essence of my life. Don’t complicate your life unnecessarily.  I’ve been working at simplifying my life, my commitments, and my schedule.   Read More...

  • His Purpose

    And finally it is Spring! I love Spring, and seeing new life once again. As I walk around my yard and see the tulips and daffodils coming up after being covered in snow for so long, I am reminded of what Jesus has done for me/for you.   Read More...

  • Examined Their Bread

    The Israelite army, under Joshua’s command, was on a roll!  They had defeated Jericho, then Ai, and now they were poised to move west into the heart of the land.  The leaders from nearby Gibeon, who knew the Israeli policy of completely destroying the cities they conquered, pretended to be from a faraway land and proposed a treaty of peace.  The Israeli leaders listened to their story, saw their worn clothing and gear, and examined the dry crusty bread in their packs.   Read More...
