Protected from the Bible – too much reality?

This entry is part 2 of 12 in the series Protected from the Bible

Ro 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. I received this from biblegateway.com  today as the “verse of the day”. At first I thought it was a good reminder. Then I thought it’s also important that we not be separated in the other direction.  You know – Jesus will always love us, but sometimes we lose our feeling of love for Him. Then – I noticed there’s a verse missing in the middle. Question – what’s that missing verse? Well – here it is – and you can guess why it was left out – Ro 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long;     we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. This, of course, begs the question – what is the entire passage? […]


Who cries for you?

So the next time we’re feeling bad about our lives, feeling like no one cares enough to cry for us, we just need to remember that someone did cry for us.
Jesus cried for us. No one loves us more than Jesus does. No one.

Little Replicas of God (Part 2) 2

And now I see first hand my own choice to do this – to blame Him or not – to trust Him or not – to allow His good intention to be played out or not – to be part of His plan – or to walk away from Him.

I was telling him he’d be OK – just stop and look around – then we’d go in. This is our normal routine in a situation like this.
He saw something that really scared him – I have no idea what. He backed up so fast and so hard … And then he ran.


God – Where Are You? (Part 1)

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Where Are You?

How often go we hear or read that Christianity isn’t relevant any more? The title line sounds like something from today – where people are wondering if God even exists. For instance:
“How long must I keep telling you that things are terrible? Why don’t you save us? …


The non-prodigal son

Lots of people know the story of the Prodigal Son. Even many non-Christians. But what of his brother? In Luke’s Gospel, the parable of the Prodigal (lost) Son is 22 verses. Only five of them are about the “other” brother. I can’t help but wonder though …


How could you do that to me?

I’ve felt like this before. So have you. We all have. Someone did something to us. Most likely, someone we really care about. And thought we could trust. But they hurt us and we’re mad. And we feel totally justified.
