Nothing too hard...

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? -Jeremiah 32:27

My walk with God is limited only by the limitations of my faith and acceptance of His will for my life.

Sometimes I watch programs that discuss the awesome vast nature of the universe and I try to comprehend just how small Earth is (let alone my state or even just me). It is surely mind-boggling, but even more so is the fact that God, Who created this all, cares enough for me that He sent His Son to minister to us and eventually die on the cross. Even that act of sacrifice was not "too hard" for God, although I am sure it was difficult.

The tomb where they put Jesus' body is empty. As Christians, we know why that is. We know that Easter has nothing to do with pagan ceremony or the Easter Bunny. It has to do with hope. Eternal hope.The Creator of the universe would have no problem with resurrection. 

The hope He has given us is of incalculable value and available to all who receive Him. Have you partaken of the greatest gift you will ever receive.

But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; -Romans 10:8-9 (NASB)

Forgive

I just watched a really good message from Fr. Cedric called "Forgive and Live." As he pointed out, the Lord's Prayer instructs us to pray "forgive us our sins as we forgive others." Sure, as Christians we all know how much we need forgiveness from God and will even admit sometimes we do others wrong and should ask forgiveness from them.  But, what about when people wrong us? Not so easy sometimes to forgive, is it? Perhaps we need to stop and think about the patience God has had for us that has produced the tremendous amount of forgiveness He offers.

Hate Speech

The amount of vitriol directed at President Trump seems to be unprecedented. At least, that is what those on the right seem to think. Of course, I remember plenty of criticism and hate speech hurled at President Obama during his time in office, as well. I don't think I really need to mention President George W. Bush, do I? There has never been (in my lifetime) such a level of animosity between opposing viewpoints as I see in today's America. Democrats hurl murderous accusations against the Republicans for their healthcare proposals and those of a conservative view sling accusations of incompetence and hypocrisy back at them. Of course, either side is generally pretty good at documenting their accusations with freshly spun 'facts.' No matter where you fit into the political spectrum, it is important to note that such contention is counter-productive. Whenever people react at the behest of their emotions, clear-headed and rational decisions are nowhere to be found. Mo

Dealing in Hope

My Uncle Carl died recently at the age of 102. Having lived a long life, he was well-liked and respected by many. I can't really say a lot about him, because I only started getting to know him these past few years. He was my father's older brother from a rather large family of 9 brothers and sisters and two adopted nephews. I can get a little sad when I think about my father's dwindling family. I have lived long enough to see all but one of the brothers and sisters pass. Of course, I must remember that for everything there is a season -- as the writer of Ecclesiastes so eloquently wrote. I attended his funeral for the sake of those he has left behind. It was not about him; we celebrated his life while he was here whenever we saw him or he passed a milestone on his journey. It's about those left here. It's about the Gospel message. After all, for a Christian, isn't it really all about the Gospel? It's about being a dealer in hope. it's about eternity wi
