  What kind of man finds grace in God’s eyes? A humble, God-fearing man. I don’t think Noah obeyed God to make himself feel better than others. This was a humble, intimate thing between him and God. Phillip

  God used dirt to make us. Then he breathed a soul into that dirt. The dirt will return to dirt. Only the spirit in me will live forever. That’s the part of me I must nurture. Phillip

Are You Following Jesus?

  They immediately left their nets and followed Him. Mark 1:18 If you spend daily, almost constant time getting to know Jesus, and listening to what he says. If you take time to understand what he’s saying, and once you know what he’s telling you to do, you immediately step out and do it, you’re following Jesus. If you’re doing …

  True gentleness comes when we’ve been through hell and we understand the suffering of others. If we stay in the hell of bitterness, we will become cynical and unable to trust. It’s only those who go through hell and come out at the other side who are able to deal gently with others. Phillip

  A healthy marriage must expel all shame, which is the foul, toxic gas that suffocates a healthy marriage. Shame is like a natural gas leak that will either kill you with its fumes or explode when you light a spark of anger, jealousy, or insecurity. Phillip

Too Tired

  He restores my soul… I believe everything I do for God will reap a reward someday, certainly for me and possibly for the people I serve. But right now, today, I have nothing left in me.

  For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation. Psalm 149:4 I think God smiles real big when someone who is normally negative chooses a cheerful heart. Many of us remember angry adults looking into our helpless little faces. What if God isn’t like that? Phillip

  There’s so much in the Bible, life, and myself I don’t understand. There’s so much about the way people act and treat each other and me that I don’t understand. If I want to know the mind I must “put on” to make sense from life, it’s humble. I must become a master of humbleness. Phillip

Rules Versus Spirit

  Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses? Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ. Galatians 3:2 To begin our relationship with God, first believe. Regardless of who we are or what we have accomplished on earth we all …
