A Word for the Week

There is an interesting thought found in John 12:24 that is worth closer examination. The timeline is a few hours before Jesus' crucifixion. Jesus has come to Jerusalem not to rule the world but rather to deliver the world from the ruin of sin. He is gathered with His disciples, Preparations for Passover have been made and in that opportunity of feasting and fellowship, Jesus says, "truly I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit." Think about this observation from Dr. O.S. Hawkins--"We think that death comes from life. But Jesus revealed just the opposite: life actually comes from death." Hawkins continues,

''Walking with the Lord'; it's a term in church circles that many are familiar with. I wonder how many hear it or use it and really understand what it means? To walk with someone means that both are going the same direction. To walk with someone means that both are moving at the same pace. To walk with someone means that both are engaged in the process. Walking with the Lord is the result of the inflow of God's love for you and the outflow of your love for God. Human beings don't often walk with someone long they don't know, don't like or don't love being in the company of. Walking with the Lord involves intimacy and out of the depth of that relationship flows love for others. The greates

I read this morning about David's reckoning with God in Psalm 51. How through repentance God restored him to fellowship after his sin had taken a tremendous toll on his family and even his faith. David prayed in Psalm 51:11-12--"Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your righteous right hand." No believer is immune from experiencing what David did. David's experience in the 'far country' could have lasted for the better part of a year while he was on the run from God. David had committed adultery with another man's wife, arranged for her husband to be killed by the enemy and then moved Ba

Have you ever been really thirsty? Many of us have trouble identifying with that need because water is readily available almost anywhere, for now. I recall however some times during the physical exertion of work or sport that I would have given quite a lot for a drink of cool water. Being thirsty is our bodies way of telling us it needs to be re-hydrated. That is important because our bodies as adults consist of somewhere between 50 and 60 % water. That said, water is vital for every function of this very complex creation of God. When dehydration occurs, the body is more prone to injury and can become dysfunctional. Jesus said in John 7:37-38--"If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and

Huh! It's a word that is often used in these parts in response to something that was not heard distinctly. Now some might use the phrase, "What did you say?" or "Pardon me, I didn't hear what you were saying", while others might say, "I'm sorry, but you will have to speak up" and some just look at you with this deer in the headlight look. The point is clear, something was lost in the transfer. Failing to be on the same page of the conversation can be costly to relationships, not to mention downright embarrassing. Example being--' a couple was driving down the road together one bright sunny day when the husband who happen to be driving turned to his wife of 50 years and said, "You're my t
