Another Daily Musing from the Comfy Chair with a View

You do not belong to yourself

Paul wrote in this letter to the Believers at Corinth – a huge trading city, entertaining all sorts of pagan religions and rites – talking about living in obedience to Christ. Shifting from living as the pagan culture around them was difficult for some of the Church at Corinth and Paul addresses that in his […]

Time to get going!

Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. I once had a pastor who said, “Whenever you see a “therefore” in scripture, take a look to see what it’s there for.” Maybe he was the one who taught me […]

Who will go?

I love Isaiah 6. I love the thought that the sight of God is overwhelming. I love that in His presence, angels cry out His holiness. I love that in that Presence, Isaiah can’t help but cry out a confession of who he really is. I love that the angels lift a coal from the […]

Coming Soon

You’ll hear Louise speak about her life, then you’ll hear her daughter, Elaina, answer each point about the same aspects of her life. Picture a 22-year-old woman in Detroit. She’s lost everything. She’s hurt and angry and doesn’t know where to turn. Those she thought would be beside her have instead betrayed her. Coming Soon: […]

Got a credit card payment that’s inching up each month? How are you going to pay it? What if you lose your job? What if something happens […]

Love your enemies.

“Love my enemies? Pray for those who persecute me? Are you sure about that, Jesus?” “Yeah, I get that it’s easy to love my family – well most of them – and my friends, but they treat me well, but my enemies? You know how they are!” “Wait, You’re saying I should get a better […]
