You are Good Enough

I hear the statement “I am so bad there is no way that He’d ever accept me”. We are told something different in the Bible. Those whispers that you keep on hearing that tell you you are not good enough do not come from God. He tells us: “This is the will of the one…

Faith Like its Never Been Told

As I was praying about what God wanted me to share He reminded me of a story that I have never heard of being associated or taught as being a lesson in faith. After Joseph had passed away and the current king of Egypt did not know who Joseph was (Exodus 1:8 ESV) the new king was…

What is the Bible Part 7, Interpretation

You can’t quote the Bible indiscriminately. There is a story of two lawyers. One thought he would make a great impression on the jury by quoting from the Bible. So he said concerning his opponent’s client, “We have it on the highest authority that it has been said, ‘All that a man has will he…

What is the Bible Part 6, Only the New Testament

Once, when a stubborn disputer seemed unconvinced, Lincoln said, “Well, let’s see how many legs has a cow?” “Four, of course,” came the reply disgustedly. “That’s right,” agreed Lincoln. “Now suppose you call the cow’s tail a leg; how many legs would the cow have?” “Why, five, of course,” was the confident reply. “Now, that’s…

What is the Bible Part 5, To Control

Em Griffin in his book The Mindchangers describes an experiment done by Solomon Asch with groups of 12 people. They were brought into a room where four lines of unequal length were displayed. They had to decide which two were the same length and publicly vote for their choice. Person after person after person (11 in all)…

What is the Bible Part 4, Fairy Tales

I have been around Christianity since I was born and can say that I have heard many different perspectives on exactly what the bible is. Because of all of these different opinions I walked away from Christianity for about 16 years, there had to be a better way. I wasn’t wrong, I had to stop…

What is the Bible Part 3 it’s the Past

“The word of God directs us in our work and way, and a dark place indeed the world would be without it. The commandment is a lamp kept burning with the oil of the Spirit, as a light to direct us in the choice of our way, and the steps we take in that way.”…

What is the Bible Part 2 History

If someone asked you where to find the Bible verse that begins, “For God so loved the world…you’d probably know he was asking about John 3:16. If you had a Bible, you could find it for him in no time. But there was a time when no one could find a single verse in the…

What is the Bible Part 1

Never let good books take the place of the Bible. Drink from the Well, not from the streams that flow from the Well.  Amy Carmichael Today I am going to start with prayer I want direction from God not input from outside sources, even myself. Dear Heavenly Father, as I begin this series into what…

You are Good Enough

There was a rock hound named Rob Cutshaw owns a little roadside shop outside Andrews, North Carolina. Like many in the trade, he hunts for rocks, then sells them to collectors or jewelry makers. He knows enough about rocks to decide which to pick up and sell, but he’s no expert. He leaves the appraising…

Thankful For Family

Rudyard Kipling once wrote, “all of us are we–and everyone else is they.” A family shares things like dreams, hopes, possessions, memories, smiles, frowns, and gladness…A family is a clan held together with the glue of love and the cement of mutual respect. A family is shelter from the storm, a friendly port when the…

Thankful For Sacrifice

It is said that Cyrus, the founder of the Persian Empire, once had captured a prince and his family. When they came before him, the monarch asked the prisoner, “What will you give me if I release you?” “The half of my wealth,” was his reply. “And if I release your children?” “Everything I possess.”…

Thankful We’re Chosen

A man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder–a waif, a nothing, a no man. Have a purpose in life, and, having it, throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you. Thomas Carlyle I am thankful to be chosen and to be where we are.…

Thankful for His Protection

Lorrie Anderson, missionary to the head-shrinking Candoshi Shapra Indians of Peru, was looking for a quiet place for her daily time of Bible reading and prayer, so she went down by the edge of the river. After reading the Bible, she took up her prayer list. Eyes closed, she did not see the deadly anaconda…

Thankful

Thankfulness seems to be a lost art today. Warren Wiersby illustrated this problem in his commentary on Colossians. He told about a ministerial student in Evanston, Illinois, who was part of a life-saving squad. In 1860, a ship went aground on the shore of Lake Michigan near Evanston, and Edward Spencer waded again and again…

Grace

Everyday there is something that presents it’s self that we have to make decisions that will affect the way we live. Decisions about the way we act, and decisions that will affect our friends and family. If it wasn’t for grace my imperfections would sink me like a ship that has run aground. Living by grace instead…

Calming Direction

The awesome thing that God has done for everyone is not just 3:16. He has given us an owners manual that will help in every aspect of our lives. Giving hope, direction, love and peace. For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans…

Who You Are

Did you know that you are the way you are because He created you to be who you are? The things you hate about yourself are what make you special. He gave these to you and He’ll use them to help others. Every part of you He knows He molded you to be you. With…

Declaration

Don’t just bottle it up scream it from the top of the mountains. Confess your love and thank him for the life preserver. We share the love that He has shared with us by speaking it we affirm it. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and…
