May I Introduce Him?

“I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.  Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.  And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!”  And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.”  Isaiah 6:1-4     I can only imagine the terror, awe, shock Isaiah experienced as he stood before the throne of...

Calling Lazarus – and Us

His friend was dying.  Messengers had arrived from Bethany with the news, “Come quickly, Jesus.  Lazarus is sick.”   He waited.  Two days.  By the time Jesus returned to Bethany, Lazarus had been dead four days.    Do you ever wonder if the human part of Jesus struggled with the God part of Jesus?  Yes, Jesus was fully-God and fully-man.  He knew that Lazarus would be raised from the dead.  He knew that God would be glorified.  The man-Jesus may well have desired to flee immediately to Bethany, to save his friend from the suffering that surely preceded his death, to...

Soon

She strained her eyes to see through the darkness.  No light, not even a spark in the distance.  No sign of her visitor.   “Soon,” she said to herself as she closed the door to her simple home.  She moved across the room, checked the bread baking in the oven, and made sure the bottle was still full of wine.  She had to be ready.  She turned the wick in her lamp up a little higher.  It was darker than usual out, after all.  The light had to be seen from far away.    He could see the faint light from a great distance.  He had to make it to that light.  He knew that was...

King of Kings, Lord of Lords!

Have you ever been so overcome with the presence of the Lord that you can’t even think straight?  His Spirit hits you like a mighty wind, forcing you to your knees, hands shooting straight up towards Heaven and the words and images in your mind are unmistakably His?  That’s what happened while I was putting on my writer’s cap and searching my thoughts for a profound Easter article.  Instead of a profound article, I was given a glorious evening filled with praise and worship.   Eric was working.  I put my Paul Wilbur CD into the stereo and said a simple “Lord, give me your...

The Journey

The door clicked closed behind him.  The sound sent both anxiety and anticipation running through his veins.   “You can’t get to your destination without looking ahead and taking your first step,” he told himself as he hoisted his light-weight sack higher on his back.   With eyes fixed on the distant mountainous expanse, he moved his right foot forward on the cobblestone walkway.  Then, he moved his left.  Right, left, right, left.  Before long, he was at the end of his own walkway.  With only the contents of his pack – a loaf of bread, some cheese wrapped in a cloth,...
