Do You Want To Be Well?

Great post, Shara. Yep, lots of us say we want to be well but not at the cost it requires. Convicting, thanks

Into the Foolishness of God

When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; someone else always gets there ahead of me.” Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked.

John 5 6-8

The story of the sick man at the Pool of Bethesda is an interesting one. It was the Sabbath, and Jesus showed up to this place full of invalids and needy people not by accident. He healed just one man and before anyone could process any of it, He was gone. The man didn’t even know who had healed him. Verse 13 tells…

A Trip to the Garden

I love to grow stuff and used to be pretty handy at it. Sadly, time prevents me from really getting after it the way I would like; but, some things really don’t need my help and just do their thing year after year.


The Innocent One: Condemned and Spat Upon

Hmm…maybe we ought to take a look at how we are treating Jesus ourselves. Great thought here, bro Tim.

Broken Pieces

“Then did they spit in His face, and buffeted Him; and others smote with the palms of their hands…” Matthew 26:67  (KJB)

As I read these words this morning it grieved my heart and soul.  It does so many times when I see men and women do the things they do to one another that are vile, wicked, and evil.

This act of spitting on another human being is an insult to us.  It is degrading.  It is a disgusting act of hatred clear and simple.  However,  we are speaking here of the One who is our Creator;  “All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.” (John 1:3).

Notice that this is after His rigged trial, the “judges” sought for false witnesses, and could find none, and “convicted” Him purely out of envy (Matthew 27:18).  The religious leaders could not stand the…

Christians Can Change: Doctrines that gives hope for Change

If you like your Bible studies orderly and organized, then here is a great one on the Christian’s hope from SlimJim.

The Domain for Truth

Establish the need: We can go over many things that Christians are to do and to become that sometimes it can feel overwhelming.  One might wonder: Can I as a Christian really change?

Purpose: In this session we will consider five truths that should give Christians hope for godly change so that we would continue to fight sin and pursue the Christian life.

    1. Hope for change #1: You are a new creation
    2. Hope for change #2: You are given a new heart
    3. Hope for change #3: You are being sanctified by the Holy Spirit
    4. Hope for change #4: Your circumstances is being used by God to make you like Jesus
    5. Hope for change #5: You will be perfectly sanctified one day

Good thought from Danny here.


But the time is coming indeed it’s here now when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. John 4:23 NLT

If God is looking for true worshippers it therefore means that there are also false worshippers.

Are you a true worshipper?

one day it might be me

Great post here, Pat. It sure seems as if we do the right thing for the wrong reasons. You nailed it, though; we ought to do that just because it pleases God. Our actions might not be what we want, or what somebody else wants, but if they are what God wants, then all is good.

Beholding Him Ministries

1559591421596_verse_image7278234209410822453.jpgI guess I am having a tangent today. How about doing the right thing because it is the right right thing? The thing that pleases God. You know, have a Joseph spirit that says, “He is not greater in this house than I am, nor has he kept back anything from me except you, because you are his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness and sin against God?”

Sometimes we say we ought to do something because one day it might be me and I would want someone to help me. Okay…I have said it as well. This post first begins with me and in fact every post does.
But you know… how about doing the right thing because it is the right thing. It might not ever be me but it still remains the right thing. It still remains the God thing. It still is thus…

Fostering a “Let’s Pray Right Now” Culture

What a great encouragement. We do so often pray with rambling, empty platitudes or worse empty promises to pray later. God can act right now so why don’t we pray…right now?

Brandon J. Adams

prayerIt is under the vaguely pleasant tingling of a mild sunburn (youth group car wash) that I write to you this morning, dear readers, and I wish to talk about a “let’s pray right now” culture.

The other day, I walked past this guy speaking with a friend in church and saying “…let’s pray about it right now”. Heads bowed, eyes closed, right there.

I don’t know what the need was, but I know this is quite commonplace in my church. Right there, right then, in the middle of everything going on, we will often pray for each other’s needs, even if it is a remote uncle with an optimistic minor surgery. Not just because it comforts the person whose uncle it is, but because we believe prayer makes a difference. It is one of my greatest joys in belonging to this church family.

I used to think it was…

Not Up For Debate ~

Another good one, Deborah Ann.

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Sometimes God takes,
His slow sweet time . . .
as His plans and mine
don’t seem to align.

For, I want to know,
what to do right now
yet, He’d rather me bide
till He can show me how.

Sometimes God asks,
me to sit and wait
and I know it’s a topic
not up for debate.

For, I know His timing,
is always the best
and He is holding back
so I will learn to rest.

Sometimes God plans,
for me are impending . . .
to see if on His timing
He’ll find me depending!


Psalm 33:11

The counsel of the Lord
standeth for ever, the thoughts
of his heart to all generations.
