Good Friday Reflections

All thanks and praise be to eternal God, for His love, mercy and grace. For the sacrifice for sins, through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, Savior and Lord. For the promised Holy Spirit given—our Comforter, Teacher and Guide. Amen.



Do you know Him today? Come as you are; His arms are open wide.
Believe on Him whom God raised from the dead, and be saved.

Draw Near to God, Behold His Majesty!

Take delight in the Lord, seek His face forevermore. "The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. His work is honourable and glorious: and His righteousness endureth forever." (Psalm 111:2 & 3) 



A Prayer:

Give us a hunger and a thirst to do Your will, Lord God; to seek Your face forevermore. All Your works are done in truth; righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne. You are all wise and powerful, and we worship none but You. Instruct our hearts to do that which is good and pleasing in Your sight. Let Your ways be known upon the earth. In Your holy name, we pray. Amen.

Creation Testifies


Good morning and Happy Wednesday! Thanks and glory be to God who has revealed His invisible attributes in creation, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead. "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world." (Psalm 19:1-4)

Having this understanding, the Psalmist David was inspired to desire God's perfect law, His sure testimony, His right statutes, His pure commandments, His clean fear, His true and righteous judgments. He reckoned they were more to be desired than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 

He wrote, "Moreover, by them Your servant is warned and in keeping them there is great reward. Who can understand His errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and I shall be innocent of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer." 

And centuries later, the Apostle Paul would write, "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."" "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse."

A Prayer:

Thank You Lord for who You are! You are God! Make us more and more like Jesus, as we submit ourselves to You. In Your holy name, we pray. Amen.

His Glory Fills the Earth!

Just a few days ago, the nation celebrated its Independence with festivities and fireworks. The latter lighting up the sky in a kaleidoscope of awesome color and design. The crowds cheered and everyone was filled with a sense of awe and wonder.

Our merciful God in heaven is about filling the earth with His glory and what a glory it is! It cannot be packaged or sold. He desires for His ways to be known on earth and His faithfulness to all generations. In the midst of our everyday existence, he wants to be ruler of our hearts. He wants us to settle our minds on Him and trust in His awesome name! - He is I AM. His glorious power is changing us from glory to glory and He is able to deliver.


Our God is an awesome God! His lightnings light up the world and causes the earth to bud and to flourish. "For as the earth brings forth its bud, and the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations." (Isaiah 61:11) 


God bless you and cause you to grow in the knowledge of Him. Knowing Him is eternal life.


Lord God, let Your kingdom come, let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
