Bible Reading: Isaiah 26.1-10

I wanted to take this first week of the New Year and share with you verses that have stirred my mind and hearts for years and have impacted my life greatly. Jerry In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: "We have a strong city; He sets up walls and ramparts for security. "Open the gates, that the righteous nation may enter, The one that remains faithful. "...

Bible Reading: Isaiah 11.1-10

Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, And a branch from his roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. And He will delight in the fear of the LORD, And He will not judge by what His eyes see, Nor make a decision by wh...

The Journey of Grace

As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories to follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now ha...

Jesus Wants Your Heart

This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far away from Me. Matthew 15.8 As I reflect on the message from Sunday there is one big thing I conclude. Jesus wants our hearts. The heart is the center of who we are. It is the center and seat of spiritual life. The heart is the fountain and seat of the thoughts, passions, desires, appetites, affections, purpos...

Humble and Contrite in Spirit

"But to this one I will look, to him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word." Isaiah 66.2b Sunday we begin our month long focus on looking at a life that is completely surrendered to the Lord. This is the one that the Lord looks to, gazes upon, and has as the apple of His eye. According to Isaiah 66 the apple of His eye is those who are humble, ...

Sacred Marriage: Holiness Part One

God is the doer and designer of marriage. He created marriage, the one flesh relationship, to display His glory and to reveal the new covenant relationship of Jesus and the church. An important element to marriage is the fear of God. For the marriage relationship to be right there must be a reverential awe for God. In Isaiah 6.1-5 it says, In the year of King Uzziah's de...

Awake and Take the Mountain

I have enjoyed walking through some of Isaiah's writings the last few weeks. This past Sunday in Isaiah 52.1-7 we heard some intense words that were historical and futuristic (prophetic) in nature, as well as very important for this present day that we live in. In Isaiah 52 we find the subject matter concerning the deliverance of the Jews out of Babylon which will not happ...

The Surest and Safest Way of Thriving

We are called to be holy as Jesus is holy which does not mean that we are called to just merely avoid evil and be good moral people. Sure, we are to avoid sin, flee immorality and not to pursue evil, but we are not called to simply be about what we don't do, but what we do do. We have seen this over the last two weeks in Isaiah 58. We have a sacred calling as God's people....

The poor, the afflicted and the gospel

What is sacred? What is sacred to you? We have been asking this since the beginning of this year. God has called His people to be holy as He is holy - to be set apart, consecrated for God and His kingdom purposes (Leviticus 11.44; 1 Peter 1.15-16). So, followers of Christ see things different than the world we live in. We think different when it comes to the way we see our...
