  • THE TRUE END AND SCOPE OF LIVING

    The trueness of life. The grand scheme of things. It begins and ends with JESUS. People can live their entire lives without giving the Life Giver so much as a nod. Sin clouds the issues of life so that we think there is no solution but man’s, or no solution at all. Jesus came to […]

  • CHRISTMAS IS A TIME FOR TRUTH

    *WARNING* Keep your children away from this devotional if you still fortify the myth of Santa Claus in your home!   No Virginia, there is no Santa Claus.  Bah, humbug.   I know, I know, I’m ruining Christmas for the kids.    After becoming a believer in Jesus, I stopped fortifying the myths of Santa […]

  • DON’T GO DYING UNTIL YOU SEE JESUS

    One of the most interesting biblical characters in the New Testament is Simeon. He was an old man whom Luke describes as “devout”. He also says that the Holy Spirit was “upon him”. The Holy Spirit revealed to Simeon that he would not see death before the Messiah (Jesus) was born. Luke 2:26 (AMP) – […]

  • LOWLY TO LOWLY

    Why shouldn’t the Shepherds get the first announcement? They would be considered part of the disenfranchised, the lowly, the poor. They lived out in the fields (Hint: one good reason why Jesus wasn’t born in the winter) and probably worked for “the man” raising and caring for the sacrificial sheep and lambs. They essentially had […]

  • IT’S ALL ABOUT THE GLORY

    This is Old Testament mountain shaking glory. Shekinah glory. The glory that drives a person to the ground in awe. Sin breaking glory. Paralyzing glory.    It’s the glory that breaks into our little cubbyhole world and shatters it into pieces.    It’s the glory that leaves us forever changed.    Luke 2:9 (AMP) – […]

  • JESUS IS ALWAYS WHERE HE CAN BE FOUND

    The Word of God is always true. Whether written or spoken, it is His truth for us today as it always has been.  The shepherds found that out.  The angels told them they would find Jesus after searching for Him. They even told them where to look.  Luke 2:16 (AMP) – “So they went with […]

  • HOW YOU KNOW YOU’RE MISSING CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS

    Have you thought about Christmas? Sounds like a pretty ridiculous question doesn’t it? I mean, how could you NOT think about Christmas in the midst of the madhouse we call the month of December.   However…did you realize that like most people, you may not have thought about Christmas at all? You may be detoured […]

  • THIS CHRISTMAS SEE THE IMPOSSIBLE

    He can take a barren woman past her child bearing days and make her be with child. He can supernaturally impregnate a teenage virgin and have her carry to term the Son of God and still maintain her virginity. He can make John jump in the womb of Elizabeth just by being in the presence […]

  • SIMPLE WORDS

    Suppose someone developed a way to simplify life? I mean REALLY simplify daily living. By that I mean by making it easier to deal with some of the tough decisions we have to make, taking the pressure off of the everyday life choices, enduring the stresses and anxieties that we are confronted with.  If we […]

  • DO YOU (REALLY) WANT TO GET WELL?

    Who wouldn’t want to be well? Right? I mean, who would ever want to remain sick if they had a chance to feel better?   The answer is often surprising.    If you think long and hard, you probably actually know at least one person who seemingly doesn’t want to be well.    In fact, […]
