Everyday with GodWhat Jesus Said'Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgement.'John 7:24 To judge or not to judge? For hundreds of years, Christians have debated the definition of 'judging'. Many Christ followers will argue that we must not judge one another, and by doing so, we are sinning. It is true, that while we are not intended to judge others without first doing ...
The Lord's Prayer
on May 11th, 2021
Everyday with God What Jesus Prayed The Lord's Prayer from Matthew 6:9-13 is the quintessential Christian prayer, given to us by Jesus Christ himself. The first part (verses 9-10) includes three petitions; and the second part (verses 11-13) also contains three petitions. This prayer acknowledges God's greatness, it invites God's will, it petitions God for our needs, and requests forgiveness for ou...

Everyday with God What Jesus Says Read Matthew 5:13-16 Food is something a lot of us take for granted. It gives us a reason to gather. It helps connect strangers and friends. It’s the focal point to some of our favorite holidays. And - food sustains us. We need it to live. All too often we forget about all that food is except for this one thing – taste. When we hear the words ice cream, steak or h...

Therefore, beseeched the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest'.Matthew 9:36-38 Can you image attending a concert or a worship service a...

What Jesus Said
on May 5th, 2021
Everyday with God What Jesus Said Living my best life. We see it as a hashtag and Oprah uses it to encourage people to follow their dreams. It's pervasive in our society, and it just sounds so good, so right. But could it be that we've been lulled into believing that we really can (and should) choose our best life, that our lives should be amazing and awesome and of course consistently photo worth...
What Jesus Prayed
on May 4th, 2021
Everyday with God What Jesus Prayed One way we can learn to pray is by looking at the prayer life of Jesus. Although the Gospels don’t provide a detailed biography of Christ, they do offer captivating glimpses into his prayer life. First, however, it will be helpful to answer the question, 'Why did Jesus pray?' This is sometimes puzzling for Christians. After all, if Jesus is God, why did Christ n...

A Scroll of Remembrance
on April 30th, 2021
Everyday with GodA Scroll of Remembrance We read in Malachi 3:16 "Then those who feared the Lord talked to each other, and the Lord listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who fear the Lord and uttered his name." This passage was written in a time of deep decline among the Jews. They questioned God's love, they showed contempt for him, they robbed G...
Enjoying His Compassion
on April 29th, 2021
Everyday with GodEnjoying His Compassion One of my favorite passages of Scripture is Psalm 103. This song of praise both begins and ends with the exclamation, "Praise the LORD, O my soul." The entire psalm is a tribute to God's goodness, but I want to direct your attention, especially to verses 8-18, which magnify God's compassion. The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding i...
Enjoying His Guidance
on April 28th, 2021
Everyday with God Enjoying His Guidance 'Christians often talk about finding or knowing the will of God related to a particular decision they must make. But the thrust of Scripture, however, is not on finding God's will, but upon his guiding us. Not that God's guidance is always easy to discern and follow, sometimes it seems as if he leaves us on our own to determine the best choice of course or ...
Enjoying His Protection
on April 27th, 2021
Everyday with God Enjoying His Protection 'A God-fearing person looks to God for protection from harm and danger. Psalm 33:16-18 says "No king is saved by the size of his army and no warrior escapes by his great strength. A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing...
