The depths of the chasm of man’s depravity is of an endless pit; it is a pit too impossible to climb, too impossible for all of human wisdom combined to engineer the most ingenious of escapes, too dark, too vile, too at enmity with God to perceive. For this reason, we must not stop to ponder our created beginning of mere dust alone, but we must come to see, if even one ounce, our utter helplessness, the very nature imputed to us by generational lineage from Adam. Continue reading “Thoughts Concerning Our Helplessness”
It seems today more than ever, opinions of mankind are absolutely everywhere we turn. Now, I could begin to set out on a discourse to rationalize our personal beliefs and then shine the spotlight of the Scriptures onto every single opinion being thrown around, especially regarding the current refugee crisis. But I am NOT going to do this.
Instead, I want to simply ask a few personal questions to every single reader, this of course to myself first, and these directed at those who profess to be Christians:
What is our true motives, as these stand bare before God, regarding our “need” and/or “compulsion” to share our opinions? Are we claiming a bold stance, either for or against, and in doing so disprove our “loving” stance as we slam other professing Christ-followers? Is the love, grace, patience that we boast about for person or people “XYZ” equally strong regarding person or people of “ABC” to whom we are so quick to “spout” out our opinions? Really, are we a people seeking our every word, deed and thought to glorify our God and to edify, sometimes ever so gently so as not to “break the bruised reed“? Continue reading “Thoughts and Our Personal Response to the Refugee Crisis, and Everything Else”

Praying, Weeping & Loving
Now we come to the chapter where the men of God stand out. We come to the place where the real work in Christ must take place in the individual life. The place of war, the place of fellowship, the place of brokenness, the place of contrition, the place of being built up, the place where God delights to dwell with His children.
“It happened that while Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished, one of the disciples said to Him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples.’”
I find it interesting that the disciples never asked for more ministry. They never asked how to reach the lost, how to cast out demons, how to speak in tongues, how to grow their followers, how to strategically do missions. No, they asked, “Lord, teach us to pray.” Continue reading “Praying, Weeping, and Loving”
