Counting By Calendars (Psalm 39)

Counting by Calendars (Psalm 39) The scariest question in life is: How long do I have to live? We all assume the best until we get “that” diagnosis from a doctor. Or we are hurting worse than ever before or a storm or results of one threaten us. But it’s the question David is thinking […]

Invisible yet Invincible

JESUS the Son of GOD, sent from GOD the Father, empowers humans who are called & believe with invincible eternal life by His Spirit John 5-6

Ransom of Righteousness

What is the best way to mature a person who is afraid to take responsibility? Give them not just the responsibility but the reassurance he or she is a team member, and that you’re in it together. Together, with your experience and their help, you will both succeed.  That is what Paul is doing here […]

Looking Up to Love

John 17:1 “When JESUS had spoken these things, He lifted up His eyes to heaven and said, Father, the hour has come. Glorify and exalt and honor and magnify Your Son, so that Your Son may glorify and extol and honor and magnify You.” You’ve seen it. Little children who can barely walk, even puppies, […]

The Sores of the Saints

The Sores of the Saints Luke 16:19-31 I think about Lazarus a lot. Not the one that JESUS raised from the dead (though an argument could be made they’re the same person) but the man who was so poor and so weak from hunger that dogs licked his sores and he could do nothing to […]

Waitenance

WAIT-ENANCE Genesis 49:10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes, And to him shall be the obedience of the peoples. (New American Standard Version) “I can’t wait until..” How would you finish that sentence? What are you waiting for? What are you living for? […]

PAThetic

PAThetic Luke 13:1-30 The case of Pat Robertson babbling on again to the media is pathetic on many levels. First, that the business/ministry he founded & which wisely passed the reins away from him still allows him to take buggy rides in traffic, so to speak. Second, that CNN would publicize the statements of an […]

A Degree of Deliverance

A Degree of Deliverance Printable version: http://www.arielion.com/degree.pdf “And do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from evil.” Matthew 6:13 I’m not smart. That’s why when I heard my favorite preacher speak on this passage a short time ago, I heard him give a great explanation of how the LORD allows temptation in our […]
