Three Words

This morning I began reading chapter 2 of Philippians. As I started reading the chapter I read verse three which states Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3 ESV) And thought this is what I was going to reflect on today especially as it [...]

Growth in Suffering

This morning I finished chapter one of Philippians. Paul uses the rest of this part of his letter to explain that even in his suffering Christ is glorified because the message of Christ – the gospel message – is being shared and spread throughout all those that hear about him. Verse 12 says it this [...]

The Ultimate Sacrifice

So I haven’t blogged for a few days but I have continued my reading in Hebrews. Today I am in chapter 10. This chapter builds upon previous chapters which talked about Jesus being a high priest and spoke to the difference between the old laws animal sacrifices and the sacrifice that Christ made. In chapter [...]

Put Down The Fingerpaints

I love how The Message states verse 1 of Hebrews 6: So come on, let’s leave the preschool fingerpainting exercises on Christ and get on with the grand work of art. Grow up in Christ! (Hebrews 6:1MSG) It goes on to talk about the fact that we know the basic tenants of our faith and [...]

Today’s reading was Hebrews chapter 5. Quite honestly, there wasn’t something that jumped out at me in the readings but I felt that God wanted me to try something different today. If you have been reading along with me or reading my thoughts I’d love to know what God is doing in your life or [...]

Walk In The Light Today

Today’s reading is 1 John chapter two. Unfortunately, while there is a lot there, nothing is coming to me to flow out on here. I would encourage you to sit with it today and to sit with God today. Look for him on your drive to and from work, in the interactions you have with [...]

Light or Dark?

This week I am going to read through the book of 1 john. It’s a book I’ve read quote a few times in the last year and keep coming back to. I picked it for a few reasons: 1) I like it 2) it’s short – 5 chapters one for each day this week and [...]

Spiritual Fitness and Why I’m Blogging Again?

So I finished Ecclesiastes yesterday and don’t know what book is next. Today I wanted to just get up and spend some time on prayer listening for God to speak. I like just sitting praying to him and listening for him. Sometimes he speaks and sometimes he doesn’t – or I don’t hear him – [...]

How Does It All End? What’s The Final Point?

That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad. (Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14 NLT) These are the final words of the book of Ecclesiastes. Solomon spends the first [...]
