Sacrifices to the Lord

How do the animal sacrifices found in the Old Testament, apply to our walk with Christ. In this devotional from Exodus 29, we did deeper in the reasons of the sacrificial system and how its principles apply to us today.

Thanksgiving 2017

Tale Told

Happy Thanksgiving, and may God bless you this holiday. The deepest joy is reserved for those who can be thankful through the ups and downs of life, and in this observation of thanksgiving I find no end to the wondrous gifts I’ve enjoyed. Though this is a little off the tone of my usual posts, I intend to list the things for which I give thanks this day.

  • For the love of God
  • For the love of family
  • For a warm and welcoming home
  • For friends
  • For an old, faithful dog who still wags its tail like a puppy when I come home
  • For a cat that reserves its affections almost exclusively to me
  • For a technologically enriched world where I can have almost any music I want to listen to instantly
  • For the smiles of children
  • For my wealth of books
  • For my reawakened wonder
  • For moments of peace

The Telos of the Human Body and Sexual Ethics

Illustrating the Glory of God

I taught a couple of weeks ago on 1 Corinthians 6:12-20 and was amazed at what is there:

12 “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything.13 “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.14 And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never!16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with…

Let Them Pray

Walking through Psalms

20170930_170200(0)“Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray.

Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs

of praise. Is anyone among you sick?

Let them call the elders

of the church to pray over them

and anoint them with oil

in the name of the Lord.”

James 5: 13, 14

I love how the Book of James is so practical, and really meets us right where we are.

Here are wonderful instructions on what to do in the different circumstances we face each day!

If we are happy we can praise God. If we are in trouble we should pray for help! He hears our prayers.

And notice too we can seek the help of others, when we are sick. There seems to be something special about leaders praying for us.

Some churches save this type of prayer for people on death’s doorstep. But perhaps the intention here is to…

The Seven Deadly Sins…

A Star Witness

The Seven Deadly Sins is a very interesting title, is there such a thing? I am glad that you asked, because today we will discuss these sins and go through each one. First things first though, where do find it in the Bible? The answer is below…

Proverbs 6: 16 – 19 says, “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”

So to answer the first question, yes, there is such a thing. Now we will go through each one and I will tell you what I think they mean. The first one is a proud look, I believe that the Lord is cautioning us…

Thanksgiving Prayer



Today, I thank you for my family. I thank you for my grandparents that are still alive. I thank you for my sister who is always there for me. I thank you for my mom who loves me infinitely. I thank you for my dad who always wants what is best for me.

Today, I thank you Lord for the ability to write this blog. I thank you for the people who will be ministered to by my shortcomings on this earth. I thank you for my home, and for my dog. My dog has brought me lots of joy and has helped relieve loneliness. He truly is a friend, and I thank you for him.

Today, I thank you Jesus for the sacrifice that you made for me. I thank you that even though my sin is great that I can be redeemed. I thank you for my…

A suggestion on how to use this prayer guide and fulfill the command in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for that is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you:”

After each topic, pause for a short time to offer your own expressions of thanksgiving and praise to God. Meditate on a few of these every day between now and Thanksgiving.


Heavenly Father, I come to You in Jesus’ Name to ask You to guide me to be a thankful person and to live in an attitude of prayer. Do not allow anything in my life to overpower Your many blessings:

  1. Thank you for my salvation… John 3:16
  2. Thank you for material provisions such as food and clothes… Philippians 4:19
  3. Thank you for the joy provided by the following…
