Day 41: We Are A New Creation

10609464_10204581119755642_5492019849004054165_nToday is a good day.  Today is the day we celebrate the New Covenant that we are under.  (*which means the old covenant is ‘obsolete’ and we are not to pay any attention to it. Heb. 8:13)  Today we also celebrate the new creations we are in Christ.  The Bible says that we have been made brand new through Christ. This is a fact, not a feeling.  When we begin out of the reality of who we really are in Christ, our lives will experience a transformation that will affect us and those around us for eternity.

Start your day today with some mind renewing truths, read them SLOWLY and carefully, there is a LOT to take in here: Continue reading

Day 40: The Silence Of God

loneliness_4c45c6d1ac27a_hiresWhy is God so good…to everyone else?  Why does He seem to ignore my pain, my journey.  Why does everyone else seem to ‘hear from God’, when I cry out from my pain and don’t even get a whisper?  Why do those who think they hear from God rub it into my face, don’t they know that it sends me into a deeper spiral of despair?  Don’t they know that my heart has screamed for ‘my God my God’ and his silence has caused me to be deaf to His voice?  (that is, if He still speaks).

Today is a day to be sensitive to those crying in the darkness.  Today is a day to remember those who suffer in silence.  Today is the day to remember that ‘joy boys’ are the painful salt to any emotional wound.  Continue reading

Day 39: Did The Father Forsake Jesus On the Cross? No!

whyhaveyouforsakenme_wide_t_nvDid The Father Forsake Jesus On the Cross? No! (Written by Steve McVey)

For many years I taught the seven sayings of the cross and when I came to the words of Jesus, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” I used the text as evidence that the Father had turned His back on His own Son when Jesus was on the cross. “The Bible is clear that God cannot look upon sin!” I would boldly proclaim. It seemed reasonable to me that God turned away from Jesus. After all, isn’t that what Jesus said?

The answer is, “No, that is not what He said. That is what He asked. There’s a big difference between making an assertion and asking a question.” Continue reading

Day 38: What’s Love Got To Do With it?

Love-and-immortality-300x249Tina Turner had it all wrong when she sang, “What’s love got to do with it, got to do with it.  What’s love but a second hand emotion.” Love has ‘everything’ to do with it.  Love is what runs our world, it is the fuel of all relationships and holds all things together.

The ‘love’ of God is farther reaching than you can possibly imagine!  Think for a minute how big  or how wide it ‘could be’.  Think again, because you aren’t even close.  The writer of Ephesians writes “May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.”  Clearly there is a sense that this love cannot be contained or fully explained, which makes me want to explore a deeper study into the word love.

The early church fathers  understood that the essence of God was ‘love’ (agape).  The word Perichoresis   Continue reading

Day 37: The Love Of Christ Is In All Things

7f9f9c0c8af94752c4d19a4bb7054ed6Ever since I was a kid, I was told that Jesus loves me because the Bible tells me so.  Isn’t that nice?   Where does it actually say that?  Then I heard He loves everybody, which really wasn’t true according to my tradition because we clearly had categories of people God did NOT love.  (Especially if you were a ‘really’ bad person).  I was confused.  Perhaps God just “kind of” loves everybody with the same ‘love covering’ and then He picks out His favourites.  I wasn’t sure.

So, I decided to find out what the Bible actually says about God and His love for humanity.  What I discovered has blown my mind.  Perhaps now is a good time to set aside your ‘childhood’ teachings on what God’s love is and revisit the subject with a new lens.  I am sure that you will find that some things you were taught are actually true, but other things have been tainted with a cultural bias.

Read very slowly and carefully, read what is says, not what it does not say: Continue reading
