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)

Slavery

Jesus responded, “I assure you: Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin. -John 8:34 (HCSB)

All too often, Christians may feel constrained by their faith and what they know to be the expectations of their Heavenly Father. Sometimes, in certain churches, the list of "don'ts" may seem longer than the ancient laws of Israel. Occasionally 'religious' people will sadly get caught up in that sort of thing. That can be a turn-off for many people and a valuable asset to the enemy, who wants you to feel bound by law and a slave to some sort of religious creed. The God I know and love is a God of freedom. I am freer as a slave to Christ than I ever was as a slave to sin. How about you? Are you free in Christ or bound by sin?

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. Moreo…

Treason or Patriotism?

Many years ago, the Democrats couldn't wait to get all of the facts surrounding Watergate out in the public eye. The Washington Post has been celebrated as a bastion of the free press recently in a movie (which we have yet to see, but plan to).


Now, the idea of releasing a memo that may indicate wrong-doing on the part of the FBI and DOJ is hailed as treasonous by some who would prefer the secrets remain secrets. I have seen or heard of nothing in the recently released memo that would appear to compromise national security -- have you?
