Contrasts of Salvation

It’s the contrast that hits me this morning. The contrast between the God who, through Isaiah, declares He is God like no other (Isa. 45:5-6), and the same God, recorded by Luke, who is crucified on the cross (Lk. 23:32-34). … Continue reading

Bringing Us to Glory

It’s a verse about Him, but I can’t help take notice of what it says about me. A jaw-dropping truth about the Savior, and a head-lifting reality for those being saved. Jesus is greater. That’s the big idea of the … Continue reading

Hovering over the last few verses of John 19 this morning, and one word jumps off the page. A word that is commonly heard at this time of year in the re-telling of the birth of a Child. But this … Continue reading

A Righteous Branch, A Redeeming Name

Hovering over five words in Jeremiah this morning . . . one hyphenated word if I spoke Hebrew. Experiencing an ebb and flow as I meditate. The outgoing “tide”, the emptying of self, that of wonder, awe, and worship. The … Continue reading
