Discussion of the Best News in the World, the Gospel of Jesus, and related topics
Here are some great thoughts from a digital magazine for all of us: Relevant Magazine. Check the link below for more on these issues from Tyler Speegle.
What goes into the decision to believe–in Jesus as the Christ–many things. End the end, we all make a significant step of
faith or step in the opposite direction from Jesus.
Here is a quote from Sheldon Vanauken, who studied English Literature at Yale and Oxford. He came to faith in 1951 with some guidance from non other than C. S. Lewis. More
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.
