  1. If only Joel Osteen understood this concept then he wouldn’t water down God’s message to mankind into a “name it and claim it” gospel. I finally understood that I needed to read and pray over God’s word daily and use it in defense against the enemy. Because when my mind is completely filled with God’s word I can’t and won’t think of those things that are distracting to me in this fallen world. It doesn’t make me perfect but it sure gives satan fits.

  2. There have been a few comments recently about peep’s frequency of reading the bible. Like brushing my teeth I find I feel a little “furry” when I don’t have a daily facetime with our Lord. And then you pull back the covers on these daily verses with such love and insight – it is fluoride for the soul! 🙂

    Thank you.

  3. Jesus was prophesied in the Old Testament to be “Emmanuel, God with us”, which we saw fulfilled in John 1:14, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us”. God, who had been “aloof” to a certain extent from His people, came to earth to dwell among His people, to experience our joys and struggles first-hand, to be so fully-present among us that we could see, hear and touch Him. Jesus came to fulfill the promise He gave to Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:15, to be that promised “seed of the woman” and “crush the head of the serpent”.

    How can we not marvel at all that He has done for us?

    Blessings!

  4. As I have been studying and preparing lessons in John’s Gospel over the past year, I have come to see and appreciate the beautiful-unity between the Old and New Testaments. Many things in the Gospels make little sense to us today when they are “stripped” of their Old Testament historical-context. John also “skips” some events or is “skimpy on the details” and I have found it invaluable to be able to pick those things up from the other Gospels. That is enabling me to “present a fuller-picture” to my listeners and readers. It has been very eye-opening for me.

    Blessings!
