    Let your light shine

    Let your light shine

    Over and over in the New Testament, we are told to serve others, to let our light shine.  But the reason isn't simply so that we can help other people, which is, of course a blessed thing in itself.  We have been ordained to bring others to faith, to guide other people into the Kingdom of God. When we are told by Jesus: In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heave, we are being instructed to motivate others to give glory to God.

    Be filled with the Holy Spirit

    Be filled with the Holy Spirit

    In Ephesians, Paul tells us to celebrate our faith by singing hymns and other Christian songs.  The New Testament does contain fragments of what appear to be early Christian hymns.  We celebrate the worship and evangelical impact of music on the Christian church.  In particular, hymns like Amazing Grace have hugely influenced converts over the last couple of centuries.

    Lost in the wilderness

    Lost in the wilderness

    When the People of God were wandering in the desert, in what the Bible calls "the wilderness", God was directing an entire people toward its earthly home.  But as Christians, we have a personal relationship with God.  We don't have a covenant, like the Old Covenant, between God and all believers; rather, each of us has a personal covenant with God - we are individually led to our spiritual and our eternal home by God.  That is the heart of the New Covenant and the heart of our faith.

    The woman with one thumb

    The woman with one thumb

    In the Book of James, the author - possibly written by the kid brother of Jesus - tells us that "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above".  A woman who had lost all her fingers and toes, except for one thumb, gave me a coloring that now hangs on the wall of my home office.  It is without doubt a perfect gift, and one that came from above.

    The famous talking donkey

    The famous talking donkey

    Only twice in the Bible does an animal talk - the voice of Satan coming from the serpent in the Garden of Eden and the  voice of God coming from the talking donkey in Numbers.  The great Gentile Prophet Balaam proves less godly than his donkey when Balaam proves blind to the angel in his path but the donkey sees the angel.  The angel is there to stop Balaam from doing a great evil.  Later, Balaam reverses course and speaks of his faith in God.  But even later, he waffles again, turning away from his faith.  That is how we live, our faith gaining and waning throughout our lives - and we must always be prepared to spot the angel standing in our path, warning us.
