Exodus is the 2nd book in the Bible and the 2nd one written by Moses. I wrote summaries of the 40 chapters which you can find here and here. Between the end of Genesis and the beginning of Exodus, over 400 years have passed. In between the Age of the Patriachs end and the Age... Continue Reading →

While I can't post or link directly to that article, I have her permission to post my original. If you want to connect with her or receive her newsletters head... Continue Reading →
So what I want to ask you is, what or who is your Isaac? Is it your spouse? Your child/ren? Your job? Your reputation? Your home maybe? Your ministry in the church? What was it that you fought hard for? that you worked hard for? that you prayed fervently for? If you did and received it from the Lord, and you rejoiced and laughed and were filled with joy, then God tested you. He asked you to sacrifice it, to give it away, to walk from it. Would you be able to do it? Give your life for Him. Be parted from your children in order to take His word to others. Not marry because your spouse is not part of His will. Be slandered because you did what He told you to, but the world didn't like it. Walk away from a legacy that you built, because He wanted you to.
This is the last and final post on the Gospel of Luke. Whew!! Who would have thought that a summary of just 4-5 chapters would consist of 1500-1800 words per post and there have been 4 already. That's nearly 6000-7000 words and I still have the last few chapters left! The featured image above is... Continue Reading →
I came across posts by Lance when they passed through my reader. I was intrigued and went back to some of his older posts. While I've not yet met Lance, he and I have similar stories in that our respective parents divorced when we were teenagers. But God. God pursued me ( and He does... Continue Reading →
Jehovah is actually YHWH and means Lord and Master. It is the promised and proper name of God. Shalom means peace, absence of strife, complete, or sound. Used together Jehovah Shalom means The Lord Is Peace. When it seems like the whole world is against you or that you you are completely unable to deal with whatever problem is in front of you, turn to the God of peace to find comfort and strength.
Finally, the shepherd cares for the sheep because he loves them and wants to maintain his own good reputation as a faithful shepherd. As we’ve seen in Psalm 23, the analogy of the Lord as the Good Shepherd was also applied by Jesus in John chapter 10. In declaring that He is the shepherd of the sheep, Jesus is confirming that He is God. The Eternal God is our Shepherd. And we would not want it any other way.
