Even to the Gentiles!

Morning Devotions (with Bandit) by Seabird Island in FL... I must be honest, White Christian Nationalism doesn’t make any sense to me scripturally... how many chapters have to be missed to to have this kind of view? When we look at scripture, we would have been the outsiders looking in if Christ hadn’t clarified everything... Continue Reading →

The Iniquity of Doing Nothing…

Today in our Bible reading we are in Numbers 32, where two of the twelve tribes share in a desire to not cross over into the Promised Land.  The land they see is “good enough” for their purposes.  God has promised them a land “flowing with milk and honey,” but there is great, and there...

This is the Service of…

In Numbers 4-5 (from last week’s reading), we saw the division of work that was given to the tribes of Levi. There were those who ministered, those who carried the holy things once they were covered, and those who carried the basic things. Oh, what a joy to be counted to be in the service...

This isn’t uncommon in the area we are in, but their communication with me was troubling. It was not troubling that they... Continue Reading →

Workers in His Field

Lord, as I look at today’s message, I see a stern warning.  We are workers in Your field, called to do Your work and to harvest Your produce.  All that we have is Yours.  All that comes from our labor is Yours.  So why do we think that it is ours?   Some of Your... Continue Reading →

Two by Two

Why would Jesus send the disciples out two by two in Mark chapter six? Wouldn’t it be more effective for Him to send them out individually? If He did that, He could reach twice the population at the same time? Let's see what the Bible has to say about this? “Two are better than one,... Continue Reading →
