“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6 NASB).  Soak in those words.  The awesome nature of who the Messiah is cannot be

Wear These Clothes

What if all of us wore the same outfit to church and then wore it everyday throughout the week?  What outfit am I talking about?  “Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience”  If all of us wore that outfit, what kind of church would we have?  What kind of world would we have?

Religion, A Burden

What do you do when religion becomes a burden?  Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”  The context of this verse is addressed to the people who had been laden down with the joyless oppressive religion of the Pharisees.  True worship of the Father

Fill Us

Father, we often pray for You to fill us with Your Spirit.  May we know that Your Spirit is not only the Spirit of love, but of justice.  May we know that Your Spirit does not always give us peace, but often disturbs us deeply.  May we know that Your Spirit grants boldness in the

How many times have you heard or said, “I am so busy”?  Have we gotten to be so busy that we are becoming less and less human?  Is it causing us to start listening to our own soul instead of the One who speaks to the heart?  Where, oh where, has it gotten us?  What

The Spirit goes into all kinds of areas where He may not be welcomed or invited.  All space is His space.  Those who would not welcome the Spirit do so that they may retain for themselves that which is not theirs.  Hospitality to the Spirit calls for surrender and is the secret of joy.  He

Troublesome  People

We cannot always distance ourselves from people who would do us harm.  Sometimes we can, and should, for our health or the health of a situation.  One of the things we must learn is that we have no control over other people’s words and actions.  However, we are responsible for our own words and actions.

Enter Unity

We do not create unity, but we come to the unity that exists in Christ.  The unity we come to is stated this way in Eph 4:4-6 (KJV), “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and

Be At Peace

Be at peace with God and delight in Him; He delights in you.  Be at peace with your fellow humans and celebrate them; they are the children of our common Father.  Be at peace with the creation and enjoy it; it points to the Creator.  Be at peace with yourself and accept yourself as a
