Let It Pass

Jesus said, “Let it pass from me”.  Sometimes we pray this as well.  It is not a sin to pray that prayer.  The struggle can bring us to say, “Nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”  God does allow some things to pass from us.  He may let us avoid some things.  But

The Unleashed God

God can do what God chooses to do.  Yet, He wants to work in and through us as humans.  We are afraid to surrender to His plans.  We want God on a leash so we can control Him.  We are afraid of where He might take us.  We like to play it safe.  The unleashed

Another Joseph

Joseph said to His brothers, “You meant it to me for evil, God meant it to me for good”.  Another Joseph was abandoned by His brothers, denied by His friend, sold by Judas, and crucified by Pilate.  The political establishment wanted Him dead.  The religious establishment wanted Him out of their way.  They sent Him

The Holy Spirit is our immediate personal connection with the Father and the Son. He is our Guide to truth.  The Spirit cannot lead us contrary to the will of God.  He does not guide us contrary to His Word.  We are resourced by the combined counsel of the Father, Son and Spirit.  The goal

God’s Will and Mary

Mary embraced the will of God.  Submission to the will of God can be costly.  Her reputation!  The scandal!  The gossip!  They would say in a derogatory way of her son (reflecting on Mary too), “We be not born of fornication” (John 8:41).  The costliness cannot be compared to what God was doing in her
