Why Doesn’t Jimmy Just Be Quiet? 1

Why Doesn’t Jimmy Just Be Quiet?

Since when does having once been elected President of the United States , make you Ambassador to the world on my behalf? And since when does one minor victory in bringing peace between two nations (that ended in the assassination of one of the two national leaders for his efforts) make you the foremost world-expert on diplomacy? Hey, don’t get me wrong, I like Jimmy Carter. As a person; in spite of the fact that he supports same sex unions, and that Stephen Hess said that “He’s a person who has stuck his thumb in the eye of every president...

Lovingkindness 1

Lovingkindness

Psalm 63:3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. It is love that separates us from the world, and identifies us with ChristI’m recovering from the post “I spent more than 5 hours in an airplane” cold. You know, the one you get after breathing 250 other people’s recycled air. But in any case, as I get back into the swing of my weekly routine, I felt the need for some spiritual encouragement this morning, and went immediately to the Psalms.

In this case...

James 2:1 (Part-II) 1 My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality. As a young high-schooler I often found myself in defense of those kids in the school that seemed to always get picked on. It’s not like I was a sucker for the hard-luck case necessarily, but for those kids who were slow minded, poor, or for what ever reason just did not fit in with the world of the average school kid, it seemed like I was always there to defend them. I was thinking about this the...

Jesus in the Mirror

JAMES 1:23-25 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.As the Lord leads me through the book of James with my family, He is so faithful to share with me...
