The Greatest Paradox

April 26, 2012 Leave a comment

The LORD our God is the greatest paradox of all:

He is everywhere, but nowhere to be seen.
He is all powerful, yet mere men are allowed to defy His perfect plans.
He is larger than the Universe, but lives in our hearts.
He is righteous and just, yet appears to ignore evil in this world. Read more…

The Key

April 26, 2012 Leave a comment

The following is a crucial passage quoted directly from the Old Testament:

Kh#zdv#rssuhvvhg#dqg#Kh#zdv#diiolfwhg/#\hw#Kh#rshqhg#qrw#Klv#prxwk>#
Kh#zdv#ohg#dv#d#odpe#wr#wkh#vodxjkwhu#+Lvd86=:,

Huh, you say?

You can certainly read the letters.  But can you understand the text?  Do you know its meaning?  Probably not, unless I provide the key.  If I were to provide you with the key, the message would be much more meaningful. Read more…

How Do You Vote?

April 13, 2012 Leave a comment

Counter-CutThe election season is upon us, as is the urge to get you to vote on something.  But this is not about a vote for Democrat or Republican.  It’s more important than that.

I bumped into an article about a miracle baby who was thought dead, placed in a morgue for 10 hours, and then found alive.  Read more…

Sin

Sin on the cross

When my wife painted this picture (she is an excellent artists and her works are usually quite beautiful), we were both repulsed by it.  I can’t say either of us ever grew to like this picture, but every time I see it, I think of  2C0rinthians 5:21:

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Then I imagine that Jesus must have looked even more repulsive and detestable than this to God the Father, and I am overcome with gratitude for the magnitude of His sacrifice for our sake.  So as we rejoice in our salvation this Resurrection Sunday, let us not forget the price and let us not forget to give thanks to Jesus Christ, our Savior.

The Greatest Moment

April 6, 2012 11 comments

Have you ever noticed that lives often change at pivotal moments in time?  In the twinkling of an eye everything flips upside down.  You’re driving along the highway, daydreaming about that vacation next month, then BOOM!  In a moment life changes dramatically in an accident.  Of course the same thing is true of good things.  You’re desperately seeking a job, and all your attempts end in failure.  Then RING!  You get that phone call from a friend of a friend, and life changes dramatically.  Those moments are “not as it looks” moments:  At the time life looks bleak, or life looks great, but all is not as it looks; everything is about to change forever.

Today is Good Friday, the day our Lord, Christ Jesus, was crucified.  That one day, that one moment when He said, “It is finished!” is the greatest “not as it looks” moment of all time.  In that one moment the whole cosmos was turned upside-down. Read more…

Awesome video

I’m not much for email forwards; I get too much email as it is.  Mostly I don’t even open forwards, but this one came my way with great recommendations, so I decided to chance it.

It is such an awesome testimony that I had to share it with you, especially in light of the last two depressing posts.  I couldn’t help but think of what blessings we would have missed if this man’s parents had aborted him because he wasn’t perfect.

Enjoy the show and praise God!
