Sometimes 1 pictures is worth 1000 words. This is one of those pictures.
What does this picture do for you? Are you sensing Jesus through His Word embracing you as this? Do you want to experience Jesus this way?
I am spending this year, 2013, diving into the Word of God and longing through this experience to sense His work in my heart and life. This has been extreme pleasure and joy. Feel free to comment.

God’s Word: It’s not about rules and what I do. It is about Him and what He is doing. The people in the Bible are not perfect. They are all flawed, just like you and me. So, it is instructive to have a fuller, richer, blessed life. Listen to Sara and experience the Word yourself.

Mary, the birth mother of Jesus, got it right. When she was confronted with truth and receiving that truth caused faith to exude from her heart. “Be it done to me according to your word” Lord!
I heard this passage dissected tonight and here is my take away. I am sure you have heard, “don’t just stand there, do something” when an apparent emergency presents itself. In following Jesus, really following this man of Galilee, we are challenged to not let the world overpower us with its thinking and approaches. We learn to thoughtfully take what we are presented and pass it through the sieve of Jesus’ philosophy of life. “What would Jesus do?” Jesus just might have us NOT “do something,” but rather “just sit there” and wait for Him to show up. Yes, He calls us to do something, but sometimes doing something is an excuse for not believing in Jesus. Doing something is a cop out to faith. Sometimes we need to wait, to pray, to rely on Jesus and not rely on our own powers. Sometimes the best thing to do is “just site there” and wait.
Look back at Mary’s heart and mentality. “What ever your will is Lord, I am willing to receive you way.” That was Mary’s heart in light of God’s will. Mary’s heart exhibited faith as did her words to the Rather.
May I mimic Mary in 2014. May we all learn from Mary and show more faith in the One giver of faith in 2014.

The fellowship among Jesus followers is really meant to be a magical/miracle experience. Please read the beginning of Acts for more information.

Yes, atheism is nothing new. The Apostle Peter spoke to them in one of his letters.
4 As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men
but in the sight of God chosen and precious,
5 you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house,
to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices
acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
This is our calling–to be, become a part of the spiritual house that God is building. We are so honored to be a part of what He is building. We are the priesthood, offering sacrifices within and without, in our hearts and in the communities around us. More

you chew on Scripture day and night.

Being on the sound, as in the Port Royal Sound by the sea, makes me more appreciative of how life was meant to be lived. The sound makes the tides of the ocean more obvious to me. On the ocean side we see the tides change the water levels but because of the bigger waves coming and going constantly, the change in tides are less obvious.
Life cycles like the tides. Buddha didn’t conceive that first, God did.
The tide goes out. Life and it’s circumstances hands us difficulty, pain, trial, and more. Jesus followers have been given the gifts to handle the difficulty. We are more than conquerors through Christ. Every good and perfect gift comes down from above. The weapons of our warfare and not earthly. We put on our armor to fight and defend.

How to Read the Bible through the Jesus Lens connects the sixty-six books of the Bible to the person and work of Jesus Christ. By explaining each book’s theme and raising pertinent questions about the contemporary importance of that message, author Michael Williams sets readers on a path toward purposeful, independent reading and application of the entire Bible.
