Lessons At Sea

Like many of the events recorded for us in the Gospel records, Matthew's recounting of Peter's walking on water with the Lord provides a wealth of insight into the Person of Jesus Christ and our relationship to God through him.

I Do Not Condemn You

Far from being a God who stands angrily over those who sin to condemn them, God is a perfect and good Father who seeks to free his children from sin's grip that they might grow into true sons and daughters, perfectly at home in the Father's great heart of love. Taken from the eighth chapter of John's gospel, the account of the woman caught in the very act of adultery and brought before Jesus for condemnation highlights this truth.

What the Children Deserve

Lately, I heard someone give voice to an all-too-familiar phrase in the Christian lexicon.  One that sounds piously self-defacing and is, I’m sure, intended to exalt God. However, on closer examination I believe it ends up doing just the opposite, stealing from God a goodly part of the glory of his Fatherhood!

The unfortunate expression is this: We deserve hell.

Is it really true that we come into the world with nothing and leave with nothing? What about Self? What is the Self becoming you will give back to God?

Disappointment

If you've never found yourself disappointed in God, hang on! Sooner or later--days, weeks, months, maybe years--it's going to be your turn. And if you don't think it can happen to you than you've forgotten that the student is not above his Master.

Jesus: Who Is He and Why Did He Come?

Just as important as it is to think through what makes up the good news of the gospel is the need to arrive at an answer as to who Jesus is and why he came. The question calls for thinking beyond any cliches we may have either heard or adopted without adequate evaluation. We need to get a firm handle on both what the good news is and the identity and motivation of the One proclaiming and embodying it to gain the needed appreciation for the expansive nature of God's Fatherhood.

The Gospel: Just What Is The Good News?

It's hard to underscore the need to get a handle on just what makes up "the good news" that Jesus came to deliver to mankind, the core of his message. The conclusion each of us reaches has practical impact.

Mercy to All

This writing, first published in June of 2011, flows from my deep-rooted conviction that every individual born is precious to God, his intention and desire being for their welfare, unwilling that any should perish.

Families

The first essay I ever wrote as a follower of Jesus Christ, Families is a personal reflection on the nature of this most intimate of human relationships.
