It’s Christmas time. Angels are real, and Mary is an eyewitness. The angel Gabriel spoke to her. She knew the angel’s word pointed to a landmark event, but she couldn’t have comprehended how significant that event would be. The Eternal Word was planted into human flesh to become everything the first Adam was meant toContinue reading “It’s Friday…Let’s Live As Mary”
Thanksgiving Day festivities are just around the corner. Do you ever ask why do created beings give thanks to God and worship Him? Not because He is needy for affirmation, and so He surrounded Himself with sycophants. Not because His ego requires constant stroking. Not because it’s commanded and we therefore must comply. No, GodContinue reading “It’s Friday…Anywhere And At Anytime”
High in the Andes Mountains, a plant known as the puya raimondii – or the Queen of the Andes – grows to more than 30 feet and can live well over 100 years. But the plant only flowers once, and only then at the end of its life. At some point between 80 to 150Continue reading “It’s Friday…Be Tenacious”
The season of giving and receiving is upon us. It seems like “Black Friday” is coming earlier and earlier with each passing year. And have you noticed that most people, even those without a solid faith foundation, have little trouble asking God for things? As human beings we are wired to receive, huh? But givingContinue reading “It’s Friday…Experience Heaven’s Fruit”
I woke up this morning and I immediately began to process and analyze this question: Which of the following virtues do I ponder most on, faith, hope, or love? I would assume to the average follower of Christ of these three virtues a lot of emphasis is given to faith and love, but much lessContinue reading “It’s Friday…Even So, Choose Hope!”
We all want to live the good life, don’t we? The prophets of Scripture gave us plenty of glimpses behind the scenes of what that could mean and look like. What did they show us? God’s nature, His purposes, and His assessments of His people, among other things. In other words, pictures of His Kingdom,Continue reading “It’s Friday…Get Back To Basics”
I was vacuuming out my car the other day and I began to analyze what this machine was actually doing. My not so scientific mind learned the following: a vacuum cleaner is always pulling, sucking, drawing in whatever it can. Its direction is inward. Other objects like a fan or a leaf blower may blowContinue reading “It’s Friday…Flip The Switch”
On occasion, people will ask me if I golf. On those occasions I usually answer, “I do golf, but I’m not a golfer.” Rarely, after people hear my answer will they ask me to golf with them. Those who take the risk to invite me to play a round will soon wonder if I understandContinue reading “It’s Friday…Everything Is Measured Differently”
Would you agree, the average person spends too much of their time worrying? And then there’s Jesus; He went to great lengths to get worry and fear out of the hearts of His followers. He was constantly reassuring them that they were more precious than the birds of the air and the flowers of theContinue reading “It’s Friday…We Can Live Carefree”
God leaves a lot to the human will, doesn’t He? Again and again in His Word, He gives us conditions. “If you fully obey The LORD. . . you will experience all these blessings” (Deuteronomy 28:1-2). “If My people. . . will humble themselves and pray. . ., I will hear from heaven and willContinue reading “It’s Friday…Be Profoundly Confident”
