Places of the Perfect Man – the Garden

In our last devotional, The Upper Room, I wanted to introduce the thought of how our Lord has a perfect understanding of life – not just because He’s omniscient and knows everything about our life from beginning to end, but because His earthly ministry was literally a perfect life, yet, others didn’t appreciate Him for…

Places of the Perfect Man – the Upper Room

  The account of the Upper Room (Passover) can be found in all four Gospels (Matthew 26:17-30, Mark 14:12-26, Luke 22:7-39, and John 13-17).  What happened there is summed up within 10 verses or so in some of the books, but in John it spans five chapters.  I really enjoyed the detail in John’s account. …

Faith, Facts and Fairytales – What are YOU worth?

There is a dangerous trend going on in the world today.  It’s called suicide.  Drug addiction.  Alcohol overdose.  The list could go on to public school shootings and murder, but we’ll stop there.  For some reason, human’s have lost the value of life.  Why is this so?  If Evolution is true things should be getting…

Faith, Facts and Fairytales – What Are The Chances?

    Christianity says faith… The world says fairytale… But what do the facts say????? The Bible teaches that this world was created by God – Evolution teaches that the world evolved by chance.  The thing is, only one of those views can be true.  Two opposing arguments can’t both be correct at the same…

Faith, Facts and Fairytales – Evidence Out Of This World

    Christianity says faith… The world says fairytale… But what do the facts say????? The truth is, Christians can’t prove that God created the world and Evolution can’t prove that the world evolved by chance.  Both arguments take faith.  But…which one is right?  Personally, I find it very frustrating that there isn’t some scientific…

The Cathedrals – I Thirst

“He said, ‘I thirst,’ – yet, He made the rivers…” It’s hard to comprehend how the One who spoke everything into existence would ever want for anything…especially something simple like water.  Yet, we see that there upon the cross, He thirsted for that which He desired most – You and I. So far, we have…

Mark Trammell Trio – Weary at the Well

Most likely, we have all heard the story of the woman at the well.  It has been the subject of many sermons and many songs…yet, have you ever noticed how many other women in the Bible ended up by a well when they were hurting, weary, or when something important was about to happen in…

Legacy Five – There’s Only One Well

In the last devotional, There Is A River, we saw that the human soul is like a bottomless pit – you can pour every treasure, luxury and pleasure into it and still, it will never be satisfied.  Our souls are much like the liquid we drink – a glass of water may fill us for…

Greater Vision – There Is A River

“There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most high.”   ~ Psalm 46:4 Every living organism in this world, whether it be man or animal, depends on water for its  existence.  We can’t get around it…we need water to live. …

Christ in the Nativity: Part 4 – The Shepherd

  A lamb bayed in the distance.  In the dewy grass, shepherds dozed off around the crackling fire on a still, silent night while keeping the sheep.  All except one, someone had to keep a watchful eye out for wild animals that roamed the hills at night while the others slept.  He had been sitting…
