Learning about the culture and language of Bible times can reveal new meaning in familiar scriptures. Let’s call them ah-ha moments.

What are the Grace of Jesus, Love of God and Fellowship of the Spirit?

What does the Apostle Paul mean when he says the grace of Jesus, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit? It means we’re loved so deeply that we’re worth dying for. As if that isn’t enough, the Holy Spirit partners with us in doing life together.

Jesus Is Our Firm Foundation

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug deep down and laid the foundation on…

Making Space for the Kingdom of God

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33 (NLT) I’m steeped in 3rd century church history right now and learning how monasteries got started. I’ve always found this simple life of devotion appealing. Had I been Catholic, I’d have considered becoming a…

Believing ‘In’ or Believing ‘That’

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. 1 Corinthians 15:17 (NLT) I’ve been exploring the expansion of the church after the New Testament. All the church had to work with were oral accounts of Jesus’ teaching, the Jewish scriptures, Paul’s letters, and the Holy…

God Answers Unspoken Prayers

And four great beasts came up out of the sea… Daniel 7:3(ESV) Warning: I can be one of those beasts. The following story is evidence that God answers even unspoken prayers. For me, Holy Week is the most meaningful of the whole year. I’ve been complaining (not praying) that I will miss Maundy Thursday, Good…

The Privilege of Faith

For you have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ but also the privilege of suffering for Him. Philippians 1:29 (NLT) Are we privileged? No matter our position in this world, as believers we are distinctly privileged to trust Christ and claim all God’s promises. Do we forget our place in God’s…

Ah-Ha! Burning from Within

The angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush.  Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight – why the bush does not burn up.” Exodus 3:2-3 (NIV) Ah-ha! The…

Where to Look for Help

I lift up my eyes to the hills – from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! Psalm 121:1-2 (NLT) This verse has always inspired me. I love nature and see God revealing Himself in all of creation. Sunrises, mountain views, any kind of water –…

Be Prepared….How?

Therefore, keep alert, because you don’t know the day or the hour. Matthew 25:13 (CEB) My devotional book has me pondering what being ready for Jesus’ second coming looks like. Today’s verse summarizes Jesus’ lesson from the parable about ten bridesmaids who are awaiting the groom’s arrival. Five have planned ahead and brought spare fuel…

It Really Happened

For we were not making up clever stories when we told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We saw his majestic splendor with our own eyes….we ourselves heard that voice from heaven. 2 Peter 1:16,18 (NLT) The more I study Scripture, the more I’m convinced it really happened. Peter was with…
