IF YOU DO THESE THINGS

After the large group of disciples deserted him Jesus ministered only in Galilee for some time. He did not go at all into Judea because the Jewish hierarchy were threatening to kill him. With the Feast of Booths at hand Jesus went back to his childhood home in Nazareth. There he found his brothers and sisters and their families gathered. His oldest brother, Joseph, welcomed him. “Jesus! We are glad to see you. We are preparing to go to Jerusalem for the feast and were expecting to see you…See More

JESUS KNOWS

(It has been 4 weeks since I posted one of these stories based upon the signs of Jesus recorded in the Gospel of John. This story is actually a continuation of a supposed gathering of the disciples who were at table when Jesus first instituted the Lord’s Supper, now a full year later.)We sat together for a while after we had eaten, all of us reluctant to leave the fellowship. Thomas spoke up.“I’ve been thinking about those men who quarreled with Jesus the day after He fed the multitude. They…See More

But some of you will allow God to lead you deeper into His holiness.Holy thinking begins by discerning your own heart.We all need to allow God to show us our hearts to discern the vulnerability and flaws hiding there.

RIGHT JUDGMENT

RIGHT JUDGMENT“Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgement.”John 7:25I am struck by the rendition of Philippians 4:5 in the e.s.v. It reads, “Let your reasonableness be known to everyone.” Good reasoning is a spiritual discipline. In the early centuries of Christianity the church grew rapidly partly because of our fearless compassion shown in the plagues that swept the cities of Europe and the east. Now when our world is being ripped apart with strong and dangerous delusions, I…See More

WE ARE ALL GULLIBLE AT DIFFERENT POINTS

WE ARE ALL GULLIBLE AT DIFFERENT POINTSI have recently been enthralled by some of the writing of Rachel Held Evans. She has written some powerful things illuminated by thrilling stories. It may not surprise you that I do not agree with her in some points. But I do recognize her as a fellow believer in Christ.In honest disclosure, at the beginning of her book Inspired she gave a long list of…See More

WHY DO YOU ASK MY NAME?

WHY DO YOU ASK MY NAME?One of my favorite events in scripture is the night Jacob wrestled with God. I don't believe you find anything like this in any religious teaching other than the Bible. The God who created the universe humbles Himself to wrestle with a man. The story is in Genesis 32.Jacob feared that he and his family would be attacked by his brother, Esau, and an army of 400 men with him. Jacob sent his family and all his…See More

THE SIN OF THE CHURCH

What sin is enveloping the church in these days?Any sin is serious. And God's people are not immune to the enemy’s temptations, although we are given armor against them. To some extent, it is not unusual for God’s people to be sucked into whatever sin dominates our culture. But those who desire to be godly will seek deliverance from the sin of the world around us.The sin that is shaking our country is slander. It is prevalent on Facebook and other social media. It seems to have consumed…See More

KEYS TO SCRIPTURE MEMORY

God has helped me a great deal with these four keys to memorizing Scripture. You too will find them helpful, especially if you are trying to commit large portions of Scripture to memory. They are to Slow Down, Calm Down, Focus, and Pray. God gave me these things in the struggle to memorize. But I believe you can find each of these emphasized in the fruit of the Spirit, listed in…See More

HOW TO YOU WORK FOR SUCCESS?

I am writing especially to you who are pastors, but much of what I have to say will apply to any believer in Jesus Christ. I suspect that much of what is pressed upon us by the church growth movement and its widely accepted continuations are little more than superstition. Some of these things remind me of the labors of Jacob in the 30th chapter of Genesis. Jacob put striped sticks before the eyes of the…See More

DEVELOPING THE SOUL OF A WRITER

DEVELOPING THE SOUL OF A WRITERWhile this quarantine is difficult for people all over the world, it is not quite as hard on writers. I do not simply mean that people need our reading material to fill the time. Writers need solitude to write. While many of us have had to learn to write in the midst of the hubbub, it always helps to be alone. This doesn't mean that we are not going stir crazy like…See More

PRAYING DEEP IN THE WORD OF GOD

PRAYING DEEP IN GOD’S WORDPrayerfully Memorizing ScriptureThere is a sense in which the most important part of a tree is its root system. The stability and nourishment of a tree come from its roots. And, of course, the roots grow more slowly than the branches. So it is with our spiritual lives.For this reason and others, I recommend Scripture memory as a discipline of prayer. It is not impossible to prayerfully memorize an entire chapter each week. The main issue is slowing down to memorize,…See More

WAITING IN PRAYER

What do you do when you have to wait a long time for something to happen? With the quarantine over Covid19 many of us are finding more time on our hands than ever before. Waiting can be difficult, almost painful. Many years ago, I served as a student summer missionary in Uganda. Possibly the most striking difference between the East African culture and the one I grew up in, was that people had little concept of hurry. I used to joke that I sometimes needed to get off alone and just…See More

Phil Miglioratti commented on David Young's blog post SELAH
"Excellent teaching that helps reimagine prayer and praise from singing about God to singing to God. Consider posting here also: https://praynetwork.ning.com/forum/categories/in-my-closet/listForCategory"

SELAH

Selah is not translated in our English Bibles. We just have the transliteration of the Hebrew word. But if you follow its usage, you can get a good grip on its meaning. It is used at the end of each stanza of Psalm 46. I have italicized it for you.“God is our refuge and strength,a very present help in trouble.Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,though its waters roar and foam,though the mountains tremble at its swelling.…See More

BEHOLD!

We seldom use the word behold in common speech. But it is a crucial word in Scripture and an essential concept for our spiritual lives. I could have posted this on my thinking in the Spirit blog, but particularly because of the passage I have chosen, I believe it fits Watching In…See More
