For what purpose?

“Who then can be saved?” But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:25-26 (ESV) "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." Paul of Tarsus, Romans 8:28 (ESV) "For by... Continue Reading →

He who does these things

O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?     Who shall dwell on your holy hill? He who walks blamelessly and does what is right     and speaks truth in his heart; who does not slander with his tongue     and does no evil to his neighbor,     nor takes up a reproach against his friend; in whose eyes a vile person is despised,     but who honors those...

Reflection. Reformation.

Music is a wonderful gift from God. There is so much I wish I could say through and about music, and I don't want to downplay its role in my life. However, I was reflecting on the core motivation behind this blog. The present format fills unsuited for the messages I'm attempting to deliver. In... Continue Reading →

Love Through Blog

“Go out and stand on the mountain in the Lord’s presence.”

At that moment, the Lord passed by. A great and mighty wind was tearing at the mountains and was shattering cliffs before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind.

 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Jesus, in Matthew 6:19-21 (ESV)

I have what I wish to be a short, encouraging word for my fellow Christians. Since I am adopted into the family of God through the power of Jesus Christ, I am a child of God. I have begun to think about that in a literal sense. What would I do if I wanted to be a part of God’s family as much as my flesh and blood family? For one thing, I would want to be talking to them. I would want to be getting to…
