Do We Look for Another?

John the Baptist was the forerunner of Christ.  He was sent to prepare the way for Jesus.  He jumped in his mother’s womb when Mary, pregnant with Jesus, visited his mother.  In later years on the banks of the river he declared Jesus to be the Lamb who would take away the sins of the world.  He baptized Jesus in the Jordan River and was present when the Spirit descended like a dove and remained on Jesus.  I am sure he heard the words of the Father from Heaven directed to Jesus, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased” (Luke 3:22 NKJV).

Old Shepherd of Bethlehem

Occasionally, I will do a one-man drama of a character as an illustrated message in church.  This past Sunday I portrayed one of the old shepherds who heard the angels and had seen the Baby Jesus in the stable as is depicted in Luke chapter 2.  I had not planned to record the drama but a church member recorded it on his iPhone and airdropped it to me.  SO HERE IT IS!

Thanks for watching.  Blessings to you.

Yours on the Journey,

Things As Well With Me As They Are

I remember some of the old timers testifying in my childhood country church, “I thank the Lord, that things are as well with me as they are!” If you had asked them to explain, they would have added: “There are a whole bunch of people who are in worse shape than me. I may not be rich, but I have enough. I am so thankful for what I do have. I could be dead. I should be dead. I can still do for myself. God has been good to me and mine.”

The Piercing Light of Christ

In the beginning God brought forth light upon the dark and chaotic waters of creation. The Holy Spirit was hovering over the face of the waters when God the Father said, “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3 NKJV). The Word sent out by the Breath of God executed the will of the Father and rolled the darkness back by His Light that was called forth from nothing but birthed from His own eternal substance.

Getting to Know God

Moses had his first encounter with God at the burning bush in the desert while keeping his father-in-law’s sheep. He saw a fire in a bush, but the bush was not consumed so he went in for a closer look. The Angel of the Lord (Pre-incarnate Christ) called out to Moses and told him to remove his sandals because he was on holy ground.

The Lord commanded Moses to return to Egypt and lead His people out. Moses questioned God about His name and this was the reply, “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14 NKJV).

Five Simple, Spiritual Things in 2019

When I look back at the younger me, I am horrified at my lack of diligence.  I am not the poster boy for it now, but I have improved some over the years.  My wife has been a great example for me, when she sets her mind to accomplish something, she gets it done.

This time of the year, some folks make New Year’s resolutions that often fall flat by February.  (Oh well, I’ll finish this post later…  Second thought, I better just do it!)  I am not one to set New Year’s resolutions.  I just need to do the simple, spiritual things with diligence.
