welcome

7 So welcome each other, in the same way that Christ also welcomed you, for God’s glory. 8 I’m saying that Christ became a servant of those who are circumcised for the sake of God’s truth, in order to confirm the promises given to the ancestors, 9 and so that the Gentiles could glorify God for his mercy. As itContinue reading “welcome”

Love

8 You do well when you really fulfill the royal law found in scripture, Love your neighbor as yourself. 9 But when you show favoritism, you are committing a sin, and by that same law you are exposed as a lawbreaker. 10 Anyone who tries to keep all of the Law but fails at one point is guilty of failingContinue reading “Love”

Jesus the Passover Lamb

Since it was the day of Preparation, the Jews did not want the bodies left on the cross during the sabbath, especially because that sabbath was a day of great solemnity.

Talk no more so very proudly, let notContinue reading “The Lord does it”

I am one who has seen affliction under the rod of God’s wrath; he has driven and brought me into darkness without any light; against me alone he turns his hand, again and again, all day long. He has made my flesh and my skin waste away, and broken my bones; he has besieged and enveloped me with bitterness andContinue reading “hope in Him”

Mr. Fix It…

Do you know someone who can fix anything? If it breaks you call them and they come and fix it.  Like an uncle who would fix everything from plumbing to bats/gloves to bikes and garbage disposals… A friend told me a story about a man who was the fix it person. The family would putContinue reading “Mr. Fix It…”

Are you broken?

Interesting question, and if you are like most you might be very defensive right now. No I’m not broken, I am perfectly fine. I know I have problems, but I’m not worse off than most and I know I’ve got things together a lot better than most people do. Were you thinking any of theContinue reading “Are you broken?”
