Monday of Trinity 12 – Romans 12

ShareRomans 12 For 11 chapters now, St. Paul has spoken logically, fervently, and powerfully about the grace of God in your life by which you have a faith that saves you.  All arguers and arguments that would raise themselves up against God and His mind have been bulldozed by Paul’s Acme Spiritual Bulldozing Co.

Tuesday of Trinity 7 – Acts 23:12-24

ShareActs 23:12-24 “Some of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.” Do you find this incredible, that a bunch of 1st century Jews would vow to eat or drink nothing until they had murdered someone?  It’s incredible to me, […]

ShareRevelation 7:9-17 Who our heroes are tell us a lot about ourselves.  The heroes of a culture are the people we look up to, the people who inspire us.  They are the people we want to be like and try to imitate.  Judging from money and attention paid to people in our culture, and judging […]

January 3, 2015 – 1 John 3:13-24

Share1 John 3:13-24 St. John has a one-track mind.  Now normally we say this as a negative thing, meaning that a person is so fixed on one aspect of life that he doesn’t experience some of the other aspects that he should.  But if your one-track mind is fixed on God and His commandments, then […]
