A Distress Signal to God

A Distress Signal to God

He said: “In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry.” Jonah 2:2 One of the most famous Bible stories for children is Jonah and the Whale. To refresh your memory, God had called upon Jonah to preach to the sinners in the wicked city of Nineveh. But Jonah was opposed and fled by boat to Tarshish. His journey was interrupted by a great storm. The sailors onboard blamed Jonah for their peril, threw him overboard, and he was swallowed […]

Show Yourself to be a Child of God

Show Yourself to be a Child of God

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” Matthew 5:43-45 “Like father. Like son.” We inherit personality traits and physical characteristics from our parents. It is not uncommon for us to point out those similarities with expressions like: “You’re acting just like your mother.” “You looked like your dad when […]

The Principle of Divine Math

The Principle of Divine Math

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Eph. 1:3 Have you ever stopped to think about what it means to have been blessed with every spiritual blessing? The descriptive word “every” indicates that, when it comes to spiritual blessings, God holds nothing back. When we count our blessings we focus most of our attention on the blessings that surround us on this earth. To be sure we should be very grateful for God’s provision and protection on this earth. Even in […]

Dealing with Your Spiritual Inadequacies

Dealing with Your Spiritual Inadequacies

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 “Those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him.” More than anything else in my life the one thing I have wanted for as long as I can remember is to live for Jesus. That said, I have failed miserably. I have never lived up to that expectation. No telling how many […]
