The Coming Celebration of Tabernacles

The instructions for the Feast of Tabernacles are found in Leviticus 23:33-44, and I encourage you to read them. We will start, however, in John 1:14 TLV "And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. We looked upon His glory, the glory of the one and only from the Father, full of grace and...

The Coming of the Lord

How often do you think about the coming of the Lord? Until recently, it wasn't something that crossed my mind. At the end of last year, I read the book of Revelation and quasi-studied it. I find myself there again. The book frightened me as a kid; the idea of the anti-Christ, armageddon, wars, and... Continue Reading →

DEVOTION: Jesus, My Vision

This afternoon I posted a hymn to my Instagram stories. I looked up the song and church that sang it on YouTube; I listened to Be Thou My Vision. Doing a thirty-day harmony of the Gospel's reading the last few days has magnified the beauty of Jesus to me. Jesus is beautiful, and men in... Continue Reading →

Jesus at the Center

Jesus said, "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that bear witness about Me;1" So whether it's the Jewish roots, believing for signs and wonders, or even wanting to make sure all your doctrinal t's are crossed and i's dotted - the enemy wants you...

Living Like Jesus

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 He was in the beginning with God.3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and...

The Promise

And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.” (Genesis 3:15 LSB). "For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest... Continue Reading →

The Love of God in The Gospel

One day last week, I was thinking about the love of God, and it just hit me how incredible the love of God is. I hate to say this, but it’s easy for me to forget about God’s love. If we don’t fix our minds on the love of God, it is easy to take... Continue Reading →

Walking with Jesus

This morning my New Testament reading ended in an odd spot at Mark 14:26, so I kept reading and finished the gospel. I sat and pondered why the reading plan would stop at such a weird place but knew it was due to the number of verses in the New Testament being split over four... Continue Reading →

From The Cradle to The Cross

As The Christmas season comes to a close, we turn our attention from the cradle to the cross. Yes, there are a few months between now and the celebration of Jesus' death and resurrection, but these two holidays remain in our hearts all year even though they are only once on the calendar. So as... Continue Reading →

From Eden to the Incarnation

Christmas Eve is tomorrow. Many will spend time with family enjoying finger foods, dinner, delicious desserts, and exchanging gifts. As you prepare for the crescendo of the Christmas season over the next two days, think about the original promise of our redemption. "...He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel." - Genesis 3:15... Continue Reading →

Pondering Jesus All Year Long

Christmas is a time we focus our attention back on Jesus. We endeavor to keep Him at the forefront all year, but life happens, we get distracted, things pile up, and we start missing days of Bible reading, prayers become hurried, and some Sunday's we are just too tired to make it to church. We... Continue Reading →

Jesus: The Greatest Gift

I don't think anything compares to watching my nieces and nephew open presents. The looks of surprise, excitement, and on occasion, disappointment are indescribable. Christmas is a time of giving and receiving. But I'm sure you can guess the direction this post is headed. The greatest gift isn't found under the tree or in a... Continue Reading →

Jesus: Our Good Shepherd

Not far from Christ's manger, shepherds kept watch over their flock. The Good Shepherd was first a baby in a manger, surrounded by animals. Mary pondered the events of the following hours in her heart. The baby in the manger was announced years later as "the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of... Continue Reading →

Jesus is…

“Did God actually say?” That is the question that brought the fall of man, and it is the same question that causes us to doubt the Word of God today. But as much as the enemy causes people to question what the Bible says, a little while after his initial question, God told him that... Continue Reading →

DEVOTION: The Blood of Jesus

I woke up at five this morning and had thoughts of the blood of Jesus. It seemed unusual to me to be thinking specifically about the blood of Jesus so early in the morning. My next thought was, that I should read Spurgeon's book on the power of the blood today. I got my phone... Continue Reading →
