Sweet Smelling Aroma

O Lord, help my hunger for you always be greater than my hunger for food, help my thirst for you always be greater than thirst for drink, help me in weakness to remember that you are our strength, help me to face plenty and hunger, abundance and need-- all with thanksgiving, gratitude and faith in you!


The Egyptians Will Know the LORD

God is so good to His elect! He strips away their idols, He humbles them to repentance, He gives them the gift of faith in His son Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit! No matter how separated from God you are, if you have been chosen, atoned for, and loved, God will draw you near through the cross of Jesus Christ! Thank you Lord!


Forgotten the God of Your Salvation

You can gain all the things of the world, yet if you forget God then you have nothing eternal, nothing that will last. If you remember God- trust, believe, and seek to give Him all the glory and obey Him then you have eternal life. Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of Lords and He will be exalted over every nation, person, and part of creation. Let us never forget who is God, who is King, who is savior, and who is the only way, truth, and life- Jesus Christ the Son of God.


The Glory of Moab Brought Low

God is so good! He displays his justice, mercy, and love. God brings about His vengeance, His glory, His love and truth. The attributes of God are on display on the cross of Jesus Christ! Let us praise God -- he so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son so that whoever would believe in Him would not perish but have eternal life. Amen!


I Will Ascend to Heaven

Everyone who exalts themselves above God will be humbled by God. A person will either be humbled by being made alive by the Holy Spirit to repent and have faith in Jesus Christ as their true Lord and Savior or a person will be humbled by being cast down into eternal death and punishment. Let us humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord that He may lift us up by His grace and mercy! Amen!


I Will Punish the World for Its Evil

God is holy! God is just! God is love! God is angry! God pours out his grace and mercy as refreshing rain on the elect! God pours out His wrath and fury on the condemned! The elect praise your name o Lord, for you have poured out the wrath and fury we deserved on your Son Jesus Christ so that we could receive your grace and mercy! Praise the Lord!


God is My Salvation

Every person needs a savior! Before we are saved we are under God's condemnation, wrath, anger, and punishment. If you have faith in and are alive in Jesus Christ you are saved from God (from his just wrath), you are saved by God (by his sacrifice) and you are saved for God (for his delight and praise). God is our Salvation in every way. Let us boast in the Lord our strength and salvation!


Worship Jesus!

There was no other way for us to have salvation -- There was no other way! Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life! No one gets to he Father except through Him! Believe in Jesus! Trust in Jesus! Have faith in Jesus! Cry out to Jesus! Repent to Jesus! He went the way of the cross. He is life. Amen!


Good Friday: I Drink It - Your Will Be Done

There was no other way for us to have salvation -- There was no other way! Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life! No one gets to he Father except through Him! Believe in Jesus! Trust in Jesus! Have faith in Jesus! Cry out to Jesus! Repent to Jesus! He went the way of the cross. He is life. Amen!


A Signal for the Nations

We long for the day when there will be no more sin, no more pain, no more sadness, no more sickness, no more death, and no more disobedience to God for all of God's people. We desire heaven and to be with all of God's people and God Himself face to face. Our passion is for the New Heaven and New Earth when Christ returns to be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. This can happen because of the atoning death of Jesus on the Cross, and this is why, when we proclaim...


Delight in the Fear of the Lord

In Isaiah, God is pronouncing His judgment and His grace for His people. The tree that was Israel will be judged by being chopped down because of its prideful rebellion and self exaltation. Yet, from that very stump is promised the True Israel, the always faithful Son of God who will live in complete union with His righteousness and the Holy Spirit. We were all dead stumps in our sins and in need of a savior. Jesus is the savior, prophet, priest, king of kings and Lord of lords. Our only...


A Remnant Will Return

God is Sovereign! As Psalms 115:3 states "Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases." There is only room in the created order for one Sovereign God. We fall into the original deception when we think we can be like God or be God over our own lives and the lives of others. God is God and we are not. It is a gracious work of God to be humbled by Him into belief and trust in Him and Him alone. Let us humble ourselves before God and let Him exalt us in His time and ways in His...


The Wrath of the Lord

Four times in our passage it is stated "For all this his anger has not turned away and his hand is stretched out still." God is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. God is love. God is holy. God is just. When God's just wrath and anger is kindled against those who are not in Jesus Christ through faith alone, by God's grace alone -- they will be destroyed. This is why the cross of Jesus Christ is so important and our only hope. People will either experience God's just wrath and...


Darkness to Great Light

For all of us who are saved in Jesus Christ, this is our reality: We were dead in our sins, yet thought we were living. We were in darkness, yet thought we could see clearly. We were lost, yet thought we were on the right track. Then Jesus Christ! Jesus saves us from our sins and the darkness, death, and punishment they bring about. Let us walk in the Light because Jesus Christ is the light, His word is the light and Jesus says to us who believe that we are the light of the...


The Rock of Stumbling



Reliable Witnesses

God is good. God is perfect. God is wise. Believing in, living in, and following Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is life! Living according to the Holy Spirit rather then according to our fallen flesh is freedom and life. If these things are true (they are true) then why would we ever want to disobey, turn-away from, or rebel against the Lord? O Lord help us to live in the life, victory, love, and for the praise of your glory! Amen!



We need to be made holy as God is holy. We cannot do this in our power, strength, or ability. We need a Savior -- Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. He is the Immanuel, God with us. Jesus makes holy all who the Father gives to Him, all who He dies for on the Cross, all who will believe and have faith in Him as Lord and Savior. There is no greater sign of God's love for His people than Jesus Christ's penal substitiutionary atoning death on the cross and resurrection from the...


Fear, or Firm in Faith

In Isaiah 7, God gives two powerful statements concerning placing all our hope, faith, security, peace... in Him and Him alone: "Be careful, be quiet, do not fear, and do not let your heart be faint" and "If you are not firm in faith, you will not be firm at all." God is our only rock, fortress and strength! All other ground to build our lives on is sinking sand. Let us place all our faith, hope and love in Jesus Christ -- the way, truth, and the life! Amen!


The Stump

If it were not for God's will and purpose to save a people for His glory we would all be destroyed. If Jesus did not obediently die on the cross for our sins we would be destroyed. If the Holy Spirit did not make us spiritually alive and give us the gift of faith and new life in Jesus Christ we would be destroyed! When the people of Judah were chopped down and reduced to a stump due to their disobedience toward God -- life only takes place in the only faithful offspring Jesus Christ. Let...
