Joseph: 14 Qualities of a Man of God

 Over my last posts I’ve highlighted a few of the incredible character attributes of Joseph, the earthly-father of Jesus. He was truly a heroic man of God and a man who had a faith and character that I want to emulate. As I studied for this short series I found fourteen characteristics of this man […] Continue reading…

Joseph: An Un-Entitled Life

Entitlement is a often used word in our culture. It’s defined as an individual’s belief that they deserve something. It may be time, resources or another consideration. Entitlement is often linked to believing that one should be provided for or thinking that other people should respect their belief or position. People with a sense of […] Continue reading…

Joseph: A Man of Heroic Character

 There is one person in the entire Christmas story that doesn’t receive a lot of attention. It’s Joseph, Jesus’ earthly, and oftentimes forgotten, father. We (the Christian church) do a great job talking about Jesus and, without a doubt we should. We talk about Mary and her role as Jesus’ mother. But, for some reason […] Continue reading…

Jesus the Healer

 Jesus encounter with the paralytic (Mark 2:1–12) is a tremendously interesting moment in His ministry.  It’s so important that all three Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) record it. What’s also interesting is what happens immediately following this event. Both Matthew and Luke indicate that on the same day, “As Jesus passed on from there, […] Continue reading…

Servant of All

I wonder how some churches and ministries would change if humility would invade our hearts!

God is Looking for True Worshipers

In the gospel of John, chapter four, there is a famous story of Jesus’ encounter with a Samaritan woman at a well. They’re having this back-and-forth conversation about her life. She is a Samaritan so she’d always been taught that God should be worshiped in at particular place, and in a particular way. Jesus tells […] Continue reading…

Be Delighted in God’s Will

What should our attitude be about God’s will? Let’s look at Jesus and how He approached it. Hebrews 10:5–7 and 10 read: Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a body You have prepared for Me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had […] Continue reading…

God With Us—Abiding in Him

In my last post I wrote about Immanuel—literally “God with us.” God sent His son to live among us to bring us a new life here on this earth as well as eternal life with Him, in Heaven. God not only sent His son to us. He goes one step further. God gives us the […] Continue reading…

Jesus: The Centerpiece of God’s Action

In Luke 4, Jesus returns to Galilee and travels throughout the region. His fame increases as reports of his radical teaching spread.  He returns home and, as tradition taught Him, goes to his hometown synagogue. Entering the synagogue, Jesus reads from the Isaiah scroll that is handed to him. As Jesus reads from the scroll, […] Continue reading…

Submitting to One Another

In my last post, I defined submission as: Voluntarily giving in to one another. When we give ourselves to one another, we will know a peace, a harmony, and a unity that the world just doesn’t understand. Unfortunately, submission isn’t something that we can just make happen. It’s not going to work in five minutes […] Continue reading…
