Nuggets – God Gave Himself

God Gave Himself
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

It is singularly appropriate that we look at this greatest of all verses on Christmas Day, for it records the greatest of all gifts. The theme of giving is very prominent in the Bible, with such words as “give,” “gift,” “gave,” etc., occurring more than 2,100 times. The first is Genesis 1:16-17 when God created the sun, moon, and stars “to give light upon the earth,” and the last is Revelation 22:12 when Christ will return with His rewards to “give every man according as his work shall be.” “He . . . gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons,” as well as “life, and breath, and all things” (Acts 14:17; 17:25).

But the greatest gift, clearly, was when God gave Himself for a lost and undeserving world. It was the greatest gift because it met the greatest need, revealed the greatest love, and had the greatest scope and purpose of any gift that could ever be conceived in the heart of an omniscient Creator.

That was not the end of His giving, of course. “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32). “Trust . . . in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy” (1 Timothy 6:17).

This great gift of God is abundantly sufficient to provide salvation and everlasting life for the whole world. But a gift only becomes a gift when it is accepted, and the greatest of all tragedies is that this greatest of all gifts has been spurned and even ridiculed, or—worst of all—simply ignored by multitudes who need it so much. When they brazenly refuse God’s free gift of everlasting life, they can only perish in everlasting death. God did all He could do when He gave His Son; for when He gave His Son, He gave Himself. HMM

Remember the times…

Remember the timeIt has been awhile since I have written.  I have no excuse other than to claim “tempest fugit,” as my intentions are daily, but life interferes.   But today it is time…to remember the times.

Today marks the time, many years ago God answered my prayer.  It was a bodacious prayer.  It was a scream to the heavens, shake my fists, tears on the pillow angry prayer. It was a silent whisper in the night prayer.  It was a desperate pleading prayer.  It was a “make a deal” with God prayer. Continue reading

How the Samaritan Became Good

Samaritan-604x270Most Bible readers are so familiar with the story of the Good Samaritan that we tend to almost skip over it, and in doing so, miss the cultural tension that would have been front and center for those who heard it from Jesus’ own lips. The Samaritans were more than just neighbors to the people of Israel. There was a long-standing dispute and animosity between the two groups that stretched back to the days of Joseph. The land of Samaria was originally deeded to the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, but when they, along with the majority of the other tribes of Israel, were carried off into captivity by the Assyrians, foreigners moved in to settle the land, bringing their idolatry along with them. (2 Kings 17:24)

Oh My Lord, What Can I Do

Oh my Lord, I’ve sinned again
What can I do, I can’t seem to win
I’m being tempted, it’s way too strong
I am weak, I am wrong
I know it comes as an attack
It’s like a monkey that’s on my back
It’s a thorn in my side
It’s sticking out, I can’t seem to hide
It’s the sin that drives me wild
I seem to forget that I’m Your child
I try to run but it pulls me in
Oh my Lord I can’t seem to win
You give me armor that I’m to don
It’s of no use unless I put it on
You gave Your Word that I’m to read
It does no good unless I head
Oh my Lord these words I say
Hear them now, to You I pray
It’s Your Word that is true
Oh my Lord draw me close to you
It’s Your Spirit that leads the way
Be my strength so I will not stray
Oh my Lord You are my guide
It’s Your Truth that I must abide
Oh my Lord You are the Light
You are my strength in this fight
You are strong where I am weak
A relationship with You is what I seek
Oh my Lord be my God
Make me pure where I am flawed
It’s Your Word that I believe is true
Help me now to turn back to You

Open Invitation

Whosoever will may come. Have you come to Jesus? If not why not today?

The River Walk

open invitation

“Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see.” So the servants brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike, and the banquet hall was filled with guests. (Matthew 22:9-10)

Read: Exodus 15:19-17:7, Matthew 22:1-33, Psalm 27:1-6, Proverbs 6:20-26

Relate: I can’t stand the suburbs. Sorry if that is where you live, but it is just not for me. My heart is for cities. I love the noise, and the sights, and the food, and most of all the people. I also enjoy the great outdoors. Although I have found country living isn’t my thing, I do enjoy going out to the countryside for visits and vacations. There is something beautiful about being out there somewhere where the nearest neighbor is a half mile away and a stroll through the back yard really means a three day hike through the woods.

What I cannot stand is the suburbs. I…
