I am Jesus’ Feet, I am Jesus’ Hands

I am Jesus’ feet! I have taken my master around the hills of Nazareth, past the pyramids of Egypt, and into the temple at Jerusalem. Many lame, deaf, blind, and maimed people have been brought before my master to be healed. Jairus fell down in front of me and asked my master to come to his house and heal his daughter. Mary sat in front of me and listened to my master’s words.

Who Are You Calling Stupid?

Listen to this story:

Several times over the last two or three years, individuals with disabilities have confided in me that sometimes people in the church will call them “stupid.” This certainly couldn’t be happening at a Seventh-day Adventist institution. But alas, it is true.

No Communication

“…Let us continue to go and pray before the Lord…” Zechariah 8:21 NKJV

What is it like to go a day without media? What if you had to give up your cell phone, iPad, iPod, television, car radio, instant messaging, and computer for 24 hours? Could you do it?

In 2010, a study was conducted asking 200 students at the University of Maryland—College Park to abstain from using all media for 24 hours.

Nine Jars of Honey

It was Christmas 1977. My wife, I, and our seven-month-old son were traveling from South-Central California to Portland, Oregon, in a two-door Toyota. We had packed carefully since we would be gone for a week and needed many things for the baby. We had enough gifts and other stuff to make the back seat level with the bottom of the back window.

Where Are The Ears?

“If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear….Pay attention to what you hear: with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, and still more will be added to you.” Mark 4:23, 24 ESV

 “If you have ears, then listen to what the Spirit says to the churches!” Revelation 3:22 NKJV

I Met Jesus in Church Today!

'Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?' Then the King will say, 'I'm telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me – you did it to me.' Matthew 25:37-40 The Message

Out of the Beaks of Birds

“And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: ‘Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!’” Revelation 5:13

Drowned They Still Speak

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

 

As it is written:

 

‘For Your sake we are killed all day long;

 

We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.’

 

Communicating in Truth

The heart of the wise teaches his mouth,
And adds learning to his lips.

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb,
Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:23-24

An ungodly man digs up evil,
And it is on his lips like a burning fire.

A perverse man sows strife,
And a whisperer separates the best of friends. Proverbs 16:27-28

The Election and My Vote

If you live in the United States in 2016, you can hardly take a trip to the water cooler without being asked, "Who are you going to vote for?" Even interested individuals and commentators in other countries cannot keep from expressing their views on the topic even though their stake in the election is zero. If you have been involved in previous presidential elections, you may have experienced what is called buyer's remorse – the regret that comes from hopes and expectations unrealized, and maybe worse, revulsion for your former choice for president.
