You are uniquely designed. Designed to withstand car accidents, football injuries, skateboard wrecks, painful break-ups, and especially dental visits. You are strong! Your health doesn’t fail because it wants to. It fails because something greater than itself is not ingested daily.
The Blood of Jesus is both literal and figurative in nature. It is multidimensional and yet you and I can have our own experience with the Blood of Jesus daily if we would like. We have a choice to engage with the literal Blood of Jesus by faith. In Luke 22:19-20, Jesus provided us all with the significance of the communion elements during a conversation he had with his Disciples. Have you ever asked, why is bread significant or why is wine significant? I’ve asked. I’ve asked why did Jesus need to give humanity figurative examples to understand the magnitude of his sacrifice?

Here’s what you do: Continue reading “Trusting God”
Here is an open letter written before Your eyes for all to participate in the edifying of Your existence. You are a remarkably faithful God who keeps covenants with all who enter into solemn promise with you. You extend the lives of the hurting so they might experience Your hands and feet through Your servants here on earth. Your heart moves with compassion for the lost, even though Your Word cannot be defiled or replaced. All will speak the words you have written, “Jesus Christ is Lord!”
Father, this new year is like thousands of others which began with a first day full of joy and laughter, as well as hopeful plans and bright resolutions. Many have begun this year in prayer while on their knees. They’ve prayed to a god, even if it was not you-The Most High God. Continue reading “My Open Letter”
