The goal of unreserved resignation from genesis 22

Genesis 22 cont…                                                                                                                                                    As we continue through this epic and tension ridden walk following the call of God we begin to come to the ‘crunch.’  How will Abraham follow the call from God?  Will he renege and say he was mistaken?  Or will he say the voice he...
Standing at the foot of the mountain

But the LORD said, “Go down and bring Aaron back up with you. In the meantime, do not let the priests or the people break through to approach the lord, or he will break out and destroy them. Exodus 19:24 (NLT) All the preparations had been made. The people had consecrated themselves as God had instructed in order that they could come into His presence but it just wasn't good enough. They had to remain standing at the foot of the mountain unable to climb the mountain and stand in God's presence. In fact, God told Moses that if any of the people dared to attempt to approach Him, He would break out and destroy them. This is a sober reminder that God is holy and that means His attributes are holy as well. God's love is not merely love. It is "holy...
The lonely path of God from genesis 22
John Knox+
published . 3 min read
Genesis 22 series cont. We have come to verse five where we notice that the silent tension is ratchet up a few notches as the two servants are told to stay behind as Abraham and Isaac ascent to mountain to worship.  There is no mention from Abraham of the true nature of the climb for worship is not the same as sacrifice.  Was Abraham misleading the servants?  Even more of a misrepresentation is Abraham’s comment that Isaac and himself will return shortly. Why the pretence?  Was Abraham concealing the truth?  Maybe a hopeful wish?  An embarrassed confused statement?  Or did Abraham really believe against all hope that God would see him through?  As the narration continues we discover, to some readers, the amazing reason that Abraham truly...
Leading your legacy

What makes a good leader? How do YOU define a good leader? Is it someone who is successful themselves, or is it someone who makes others feel successful? Is success defined by how much money we have, how many friends we have, or is it something bigger?  Lately it seems that I have spent a lot of time mulling over these and many other questions surrounding what makes a leader more than someone who is “in charge”. For the past year, my husband and I have been blessed to be entrepreneurs of sorts, but before that, for 19 years, I worked for a very large corporation as a manager. The company went through a phase where they felt a strong desire to train us to be more than just mangers, they wanted us to be great leaders. They didn’t only want us to go through the...
But I can't!

Moses had an amazing story. He was supposed to be killed the moment he was born but he wasn't. His mother was able to hide him for three months but when he became to old to hide any longer, she placed him in a basket and set him afloat in the Nile River. He was found by Pharaoh's daughter and raised in the palace. He would have been educated by the finest educators, trained to take on a leadership role in the most powerful kingdom in the but he ended up as a nomadic shepherd out in the desert.  In retrospect, we can see that this was all a part of God's plan. God had primed him not to lead the people of Egypt but to lead the his own people, the Israelites through the very desert land where he had been a shepherd for forty years. Moses had spent eighty years training...
Knowing where you are going
John B. Abela+

Ever been lost? Every look down and wonder if you are going in the right direction? Ever have that moment when you just stop and have a feeling the direction you are going is not the direction you should be going? Ever have that instinctive feeling that something you have planned for later in the day, you should probably skip going too? I am sure most of us know the Bible verse: Not by power nor by might, but by my Spirit Zechariah 4:6 (Peshitta) I am sure that most of us, when we see and read that verse, think about being strong in the Lord. But lately I have been wondering if that is just the first layer of that verse. What if, if we are allowed to peel away a layer, to go a bit deeper, we start to think about how this verse is talking about trusting the Spirit. While we should...
Called to humility
Les B+

Micah 6:8 - He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God (NIV) Throughout this past week, God placed heavily on heart His requirement of humility.  As @KReynolds wrote in The Mind of Christ, my heart is distressed seeing many believers acting like the world. Witness to Christ and His Kingdom is forfeited through words and actions.  Many prophesies surround the new administration leading a worldwide reformation of God. Will He work through people whose words and actions leave others feeling trampled and searching for grace? Some suggest leaving the country if not in agreement with new policy.    Christ said His Kingdom is not of this world. The adoring crowds on...
