No Access

There are so many things in life that we don’t have access to. We see signs that read, “No admittance.” “Employees only.” “Don’t go past this point.” No access. That is precisely the way it was with God in the days before Jesus. In the Temple, a veil separated God from the people and served as a barrier that only the high priest could

Unfailing Love

Have you ever focused on the unfailing love of the Father? Psalm 48:9 says:  Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love. Meditate on it—think about it, dwell on it, ponder it. We are all guilty of reading His Word so we can mark it off on our “to do” list, like God only cares that we read it. When we do

You Are Chosen

Do you remember how, when you played games as kids, you’d pick the two best players to be captains of the teams. Then they would choose players for their teams. We would call out, “Choose me.” And it was a wonderful feeling to be chosen. The Bible says that God the Father has chosen you, and chosen me, before the world was created. You

Heaven and Nature Sing

I love the Christmas season; the whole thing. The lights, the decorations, the tree, the carols, family. Everything. But mostly Jesus. While attending a service last year and singing Joy to the World, a thought came to me. I saw four words of this song in a whole new light.

After rowing for several hours, a severe storm had almost overcome them, and they were frightened.

Trust The Good Shepherd

Jesus called himself the Good Shepherd. He described his followers as sheep. Why? Wolves hunt in packs. Their aggression, power, and cunning, are no match for the sheep they hunt to devour. When wolves gather to form packs they are incredibly vicious and effective predators. Sheep graze in the fields, completely defenseless except for their shepherd whom they must trust completely for protection, not
