Determined

Willing but not determined. Jesus, in John 5:2-9, asked a man if he wanted to be made well. This man has been lying by a place of healing, willing to be healed for 38 years, but not determined enough to act on it. Once a year the Angel would come and stir the water for … More Determined

Doomed To Repeat

Father Forgive

When Jesus was having the worst day of his life, He did not say woe is Me or feel sorry for Himself, but He said in Luke 23:34, “Father forgive them they know not what they do.” He could say this because if they really knew the ramifications of the things they do, they probably … More Father Forgive

Button Pusher

Satan is a button pusher and he orchestrates many events that push your buttons with such ease it is as if he can read your mind. How does he do this? Remember the statement of Jesus in Luke 6:45, out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks? Jesus is giving us a hint … More Button Pusher

Honest

One of the hardest things to do is to be honest with ourselves. When we make a mistake or even sin, we are quick to blame someone else, just like Adam and Eve blamed others. It is difficult to look at yourself, to own your decision and to say, “I made this decision and this is … More Honest

Into The Kingdom

We have all seen Jesus statement in Mark 10:15 in which Jesus said to the disciples, “Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like child shall not enter at all.” I noticed something interesting about this. Jesus did not say to become like an infant, helpless and needing constant … More Into The Kingdom
