The Words of His Mouth; My Treasure

[Note: For the sake of distinguishing the Father, God from the Son, Jesus, in this article, the Father, God pronoun will be capitalized and the Son, Jesus, pronoun will be lower case, but in no way meant to diminish His deity.]


Like Paul, I count all things, rubbish, compared to knowing Jesus. I am stirred to study his life, his love & his death; his words, his motives, everything about him. I am, after all, being confirmed to his image and my desire is to be like him. Therefore, I comb his Word, where all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are and where I behold the face of Jesus.

The Church is Alive & Well!

My hope was renewed today as I looked out over a congregation of believers from the choir loft! “What Love is This”, by Kari Jobe had just been ministered by our Performing Arts department and I’d venture to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the house, including mine. I pondered the morning’s events in my heart. This was my first time singing in choir in over two years. My body was racked with pain as I debated staying home. I had even texted our Worship Ministry leaders to let them know I was not going to make it.

Keeping the Main Thing, the Main Thing

The day was marked in time. The moment planned from the foundation of the world. “Behold, the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world!” John’s words rang from eternity and into the hearing of all those surrounding his revelation of Jesus Christ at the Jordan. [John 1: 29-32]

The Power of Music!

It’s been said, music is the universal language. I don’t know who coined the phrase, but it appears to carry a lot of truth! Artists can travel around the world singing to those who don’t speak their language and still be just as powerful as they are in their native land. Why? Because song has power!

VOICES

“My God’s not dead, He’s surely alive. He’s living on the inside roaring like a lion.”

This was a song written by Daniel Bashta made popular by David Crowder Band and Newsboys. A song of revival and spiritual revolution.

When I think about all the revolutions in the earth and our country, they started with a voice! A declaration of sorts.

“Thy Kingdom Come!”

God is returning community to ministry. The way it began in the book of Acts in the Bible. Actually, in Genesis. If you look at it, God always began with an individual or a family; Abraham, Noah. A community of people or person who loved and served Him. With these, He would change the world!

What’s Important to God?

I have always been astounded at what is important to God. That’s why I hate religion! And I believe that’s why Jesus hated religion too. It was because of how unlike God religion was in Jesus’ day. Always has been and still is today!

FINDING OUR WORTH IN JESUS CHRIST

Many of us flail through life wondering who we are while trying to obtain our worth from things, people and accomplishments. We do this because we have no sense of worth within ourselves so we look incessantly outside ourselves or in other things.
