What do they see?

Today my daughter Leah sent me a note over this saying: “Thought of ya’ll when I read this…” Precious Time The picture is still clear. My dad sitting in his chair. The soft glow of the lamp shinning on him. His eyes closed in prayer, his bible open on his lap, the coffee cup on the stand. This is what I saw every morning. Every morning from the time I can remember. He is still doing this. When my children stay at Hawpaw and Mamaw’s house this is what they see when they wake up. Time with the Lord. Precious time. This is what I want my kids to remember. I want them to see that time with the Lord is most important. Not computers, not TV, not the phone. “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to...

The Spirit cannot fill whom He cannot separate, and whom He cannot fill, He cannot make Holy, and whom He cannot make holy, He cannot make happy. My postulate further insists that the average modern Christian is not Christ-like. The proof of this is...

Heaven? – A Reality Check

Some Jesus lovers are said to be “so heavenly minded that they are of no earthly good.” That’s usually said about someone who loves Jesus a bit more than we do. The truth is however, that in contemporary Christian church culture the opposite is true. Most are so earthly minded they are no heavenly good! Chew on that a bit. The reality of heaven and hell have been diminished in our culture to the point of irrelevance. This is tragic because; “We are not physical beings who have occasional  spiritual experiences, we are spirit beings who are having a TEMPORARY physical experience.” T. DeChardin. The evil one has implanted such distortion in our perception of reality! We need to step back and refocus, rethink, and in many of our lives redirect our energy. One...
