Here is a fascinating thing to consider today.

Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself. (2 Timothy 2:11-13 NIV)

He,s faithful even we are faithless! That’s amazing! It is so comforting to know that the Creator of the world is faithful to us, despite our continuous efforts to act like we really don’t need him!

I hope this brings you peace today and that you learn from this fascinating characteristic of God. Maybe this is something that you can apply to your own relationships ?

Simple Agenda

Here’s one thing to get your mind in the right place on this Monday morning.  One little thought from Paul as he pleads with the Galatians to stay try to the freedom of Christ.

For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Galatians 5:5-6 (NIV)

One thing counts.  Is that one thing on your agenda today?

Passing Time?

I ran across this earlier this week, and I can’t remember where, so I am failing to give credit to the creator, but I still loved the thought.


“Vision w/o action is a dream.Action w/o vision is simply passing time.”

Let’s not just pass time.  Let’s take action based on our vision – which I hope is your hope and faith!

22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend. 24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone. James 2 NIV

Let’s me intentional.  Lets not wander with no vision, and lets not let our vision be only a dream.  Put your faith into action and make the today something great!

Why do we doubt?

Yesterday was a dark, gloomy, rainy day in Chattanooga.  However, I loved this text message exchange I had with my friend Randy.  I just had to share:




His response was so good and the more I thought about it during the day, the more I thought about how we use walking on water to symbolize perfection, when really both Jesus and Peter, who also walked on water, did it because of their faith not because of their perfection.  It’s very obvious that Peter was far from perfect, yet he trusted enough, for long enough, to walk on water.


29 “Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.  Matthew 14:29 New International Version (NIV)

Yet we doubt so much.

Lights, Camera, Faith and Action

Yesterday I was given the chance to teach some junior high boys about the story of Rahab.  It’s good to talk to boys about spy stories and Bond girls! Especially when you get to show them cool movie trailers about the whole Jericho thing like this one.

JERICHO from Rob McLellan on Vimeo.

So on to Rahab, the main character of the story.  It’s pretty amazing to see how God uses a person of ill repute, and calls them out as a great person of faith.  We see this a lot with our Lord.  He calls out the people that we would consider trash, or sinful, and creates a wonderful story of redemption, forgiveness and triumph.  From the bible, in 5 seconds, I can think, of the women at the well, Zacchaeus, Moses, and Paul, to name just a few.

That’s pretty good for us to know, on two accounts.  First, there is always hope for us.  God loves to offer forgiveness!  And Second, we should let God do the judging of people, and we should look for ways to lift all people up – no matter what we think about them.

We love, love love the first!  We like the second… on paper. But not as much in practice.  Today, think about that a little.  Think about how you are treating those around you and put the second idea into practice.  You may be amazed to see what a little bit of faith and action can do.


24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone. 25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? 26As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. James 2:24-26 New International Version (NIV)
