I don’t often use the Bible paraphrase “The Message,” but today, it struck a chord. This is actually verses 12-14 of Romans 6: “That means you must not give sin a vote in the way you conduct your lives. Don’t give it the time of day. Don’t even run little errands that are connected with […]

Do you remember you before Christ? Before you surrendered your life to Him? Do you remember the things you did? The choices you made? More likely than not, those choices focused on what you wanted and what made you feel good. Even as a child, the things you asked for were what you wanted, what […]

Psalms 30:5 seems a bit strange standing there all by itself. It starts with “for” for goodness sake. There has to be something said prior to this to help make sense of these words. Sure enough, verse 4 says, “Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name.” ‭ And before that […]

I don’t really like criticism. I usually become defensive and I feel hurt. There are a few folks I will receive it from without question, however, because I know their love for me. I know they care too much to let me continue in the path I’m going. When we receive the life-giving correction these […]

Paul wrote a letter to the church in Galatia… Learning moment: Galatia was an area in Asia Minor that we know now as Turkey – the area where the capital of Ankara is. An interesting fact is that ancient Roman writers called those who lived there “Galli” meaning Gauls or Celts. Just after Paul wrote […]

“All my heart, Lord? My mind and soul, too? I get how to live with my heart, but my mind and soul? I’m not sure about that. And that loving my neighbor as myself? I think I do a pretty good job of that.” But do we? Do we understand what it means to love […]
