‘SON OF GOD’

I’ve not seen the new release of THOR movie.  I’ve heard mixed reviews.  I do find it interesting how many are entertained by the concept of GODS, and how they interact with mankind.

What about the SON OF GOD?  How can God, being God have a son?  Does that mean there’s in fact 2 Gods?  Which one rules, who’s in charge?

Well, starting February 9, I plan to explore who THE SON OF GOD is from Dr. Luke’s perspective in a series of messages.  I’ve never done this before, so look forward to what this will uncover. 

Anyone have a comment about this? 

When you find yourself stuck in THE PIT

Ever heard the expression: ‘I’m down in the pits’?
Actually, Psalms 40 talks about being in a pit. A place where you feel stuck, a sinking feeling, you can’t move and get out.

The good news is that God doesn’t want any person, young or old to stay in the pit. He wants to deliver us from the pit. But in order to do so, we have to seriously want ‘OUT’.

So here’s the question: Are you down in the pit? If so, how serious are you about getting out? Not just to escape the pits pain and inconvenience, but do you REALLY want out?

Feel free to blog me about your pit. Maybe someone has a story of how God rescued them from the pit. What helped turn it around? Share the scripture that helped. I’d love to hear it.

The MONDAY TO SATURDAY church

 

I’ve come to believe that my calling is not so much to DO GREAT THINGS, but rather to BE A GREAT PERSON – and that person is JESUS CHRIST.

The church of Jesus Christ is the resident presence of Jesus in the world.

 

Colossians 1:26-27 (NIV2011)
26  the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people.
27  To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Paul mentions a mystery, a secret, that God kept so well, that no one, not even Paul knew the secret.

What’s that great secret?

‘Christ in you, the hope of glory’

If you think of the CHURCH in terms of activities, then these verses make no sense.

But – what if the church is PEOPLE AND God indwells these people?

Then these verses are profound.

Therefore, God is NOT distant.

He’s not OUT THERE SOMEWHERE.

Understanding the truth of Colossians 1 changes everything.

If ‘        CHRIST JESUS’ is in me, then who is the hope of Glory?   Me!

Where I am, Christ is.

 

What do you think about that?  Let me hear some feedback.
