No Greater Love…

No greater loveJesus said, My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. John 15:12-14

Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While

What Does God Want Me To Do, Jesus?

I do not know what God wants me to do, Jesus. So many works I have undertaken have been blocked. My attempts have gone nowhere. It seems that I have failed God, even though I have tried with all of my might. I want so much to fulfill His plan for me. One day I will stand before You, Jesus, and You will judge what I have done with all God has provided. Please help me.

“Listen. You are thinking with

Life in His Name…

Life in his nameAfter Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:

“Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:1-3

From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples

David Nash

In the summer of 1978 Nash was told of a huge oak tree that had just been felled. He travelled to the site and spent some weeks working on the tree and eventually made a boulder of wood thinking he could take

Time with the Father

My Father is calling for me and nervously I prepare for our time. My Father is a great and mighty warrior who rules and reigns in all the earth. My thoughts are all a jumble with the reasons for his call. Need to get my breathing under control and letting the need to eat go and the feeling of being overwhelmed go…The walk across the river took no time at all; without hesitation my feet brought me into the throne

Endurance and Encouragement…

EnduranceI, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. Revelation 1:9

Paul writes, For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: “The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.” For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the

The Eternal God…

The Eternal God“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the Lord your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven. Deuteronomy 4:19


Firstborn Son

The mighty hand of God brought Israel out of Egypt so that they could worship God in the desert. The miraculous signs and wonders that God did in Egypt foretell what God will do in the future with His people Israel. The Lord says in His word in Exodus 13 to remember what I did for you and tell your children.

Remember your slavery….remember that you cried out to God….remember that I sent a man called Moses to help…remember the signs

Love One Another…

Love one anotherJesus said, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples (followers), if you  love one another.” John 13:34-35

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Ephesians 5:21

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is

A Deathbed Lesson: Jesus in Watching – Love Your Enemies

Though I had urged him a number of times to accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior, I did not know with certainty until a month before his death that I would see him in Heaven. I was the one who quoted Scriptures. I told him that the people in his life were not his friends. I encouraged him to avoid people and choices that hurt him. He did not listen to me, and I did not see Jesus in
