Some really good people to follow!
This is my five people to follow for this week! fishforpeople- a young man who has been given a great artistic talent from God. chrislazo- a bit soy sauce obsessed, but I have really benefitted from his insights into the Word. heisezra- a man who to me has exhibited a great faith in God and a will to seek Him. aaronfeeney- a young man who makes me wish that I had the spiritual insight he has...
Missio Christo- Flesh by Britt Merrick Finally got to listen to this as an mp3 from here. Posted the video link for everyone that can actually see it. Really good message! About being sent, like Christ was sent. Also about missional intentionality or living like Christ as mission to show all that you are identified with Christ. When I get back and get to my new home in Rapid City, SD…I...
I have tried to take the bold out of some of the Psalms 139 post and it won’t go away. I didn’t put it in there in the first place, but I have seen tumblr editing do stange things before and this will probably not be the last.
Psalm 139 What is this psalm all about? 1. God Knows Me! v. 1-6 God knows you better than you know yourself he knows the hidden motives of your heart and knows why you do things better than you understand them! He knows our words before we speak them. The psalmist was so amazed at God’s knowledge of him that he says it is too wonderful for him! also see: 1 Sam 16:7, Job 37:16, Psalm...

The Lord's Supper- 1 Corinthians 11:23-34
For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you...
prayfordaisy: Prayer worked! Daisy has made a miraculous turn around since yesterday and is doing much better today! Praise the Lord! She was able to spend the night at home. Please pray for wisdom in how to proceed with treatment and for protection from the swine flu since people close to Daisy have it.
I hate post-modernism!
Where everything is relative…there is no good or bad…all truths are the same. How can anyone think that that holds any answers when all it does is make multiple answers and all of them wrong.
Got sort of long on that last one!
@catholicism re: abortion debate w/rabbleprochoice
I don’t agree with some of what you say (aaronfeeney discussion), but I do agree with you on abortion. The father has known us from the womb (Jer 1:5). Here is a good source to goto to get some answers on it. Case for Life. Don’t expect much results though from this debate because. rabbleprochoice said (emphasis mine): You are allowed to have your faith. You are not allowed to...

prayfordaisy: Today at 1pm Daisy will have her next Chemo treatment. Please pray Philippians 4:7 for Daisy today “And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Having returned to school the first half of this week, we would also appreciate your prayers for Daisy to be protected from sickness during the flu season. Thank you!
Rainy season in Northern Iraq.
Well the rainy season has set upon us here. Been having scattered thunderstorms since yesterday and the temps are in the 60’s now. Actually had to dig out my rain gear to go and eat chow since it is about a mile walk there. Luckily only about 4 more months in country and I will be going home.

There would be a reason to die for a good man, Paul says. It makes sense to die for a good man, but the love of God isn’t like that. We have to remember that Christ did not die for good men. God died for sinners. He died for the ungodly. His love is on a whole other level. God loves people who are not worth dying for. kau -blog quote

Importunity in prayer
Importunity is the act of being persistent especially to the point of annoyance or intrusion. Pretty cool that Jesus calls us to be like this. Glad our God is a righteous judge! Luke 18:1-8 (Emphasis mine) Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did...
