And the band played on ….

They didn’t think it could happen but it did. How often does that happen? We believe something that isn’t true. And we go down with the ship.

In 1912, the British passenger liner, the RMS Titanic, sank in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two and a half hours after hitting an iceberg. 1,517 people are killed. They said it was unsinkable. They were wrong. And, the Band played on!!

Jesus calls on us to know the truth. It will set us free.

You never know

January 29, 2013 3 comments

We never know the influence our words may have when God is moving in someone’s life. His words don’t return empty. And, we may never know the final outcome.

May we speak the truth at all times.

The very one who argued you down, will sometimes be found, years later, to have been influenced by what you said. ~~C. S. Lewis

Remember the early days?

January 24, 2013 Leave a comment

We should remember the early days when we first came to Jesus and saw the truth. Those were not always easy days. Friends didn’t understand. Family members laughed at us. They “knew” us too well. But, we knew who we knew.

He was with us through it all. We knew our real treasure. In one way, it seemed like nothing bothered us at all. We were willing to endure anything for Jesus. We were sure of Him.

So, will we throw it all away now? No, we need to stick it out no matter what.

We need to stay with the new plan. It is so much better than how we used to justify our self. The new plan is a sure thing. He has promised to complete everything and so we need to go for the prize. It isn’t going to take as long as we think. He will be back anytime now. We need to thrive on loyal trust. We can’t cut and run away.

We aren’t quitters. We aren’t losers. We are going to hang in and see it to the very end. Trusting Him who is always faithful.

He is the truth.

Are my eyes open?

November 12, 2012 Leave a comment

There are many mysteries with God. But His reality is plain enough. All anyone has to do is open their eyes. The reality is right in front of us.

You can’t hide the truth. He is and He is love. He is and He is light. Plain enough to see that.

But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! Romans 1:18-23

“You spoke the truth there, sure enough.” ~~Jesus

Jesus knows us. Jesus knows us to our core. We can try to evade the truth but Jesus knows the truth. So there is no point in even trying.

The kind of people our Father is out looking for are those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. He wants that kind of relationship with us.

“That’s nicely put: ‘I have no husband.’ You’ve had five husbands, and the man you’re living with now isn’t even your husband. You spoke the truth there, sure enough.” ~~Jesus (John 4:18 The Message) 

Will God’s word be accomplished?

September 11, 2012 1 comment

God has a purpose in what He says to me. There is something He has in mind to accomplish. And, it will be accomplished. He is true to His word. He doesn’t say things He doesn’t mean. What He says will be done.

The enemy is a liar. He would deceive me.There is no peace or gift of grace in what he says.

My heavenly Father and Jesus are the truth. I can count on them.

 May I believe His word that He is speaking to me now.

 My word that goes out from my mouth:
 It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

—–Isaiah 55:11

“Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth.” ~~Jesus

August 27, 2012 2 comments

Jesus challenges us to worship God in a way we have never known before. Do we think worship is sitting in church singing the hymn and raising our hands?

Worship is at the core of who we are in pursuit of who God is. Are we pursuing God in our worship? Are we heads over heals going after Him? Are we engaged with Him like never before? Jesus wants us to know that God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.

 “Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth.” ~~Jesus (John 4:24 The Message)
