Our Position in Christ

I was reading this verse this morning:
"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." (Galatians 2:20)

And then I thought of this song. So I decided to share it with you! :-)

The little commentary under that verse (in my Bible) says, "Thus the believer's rule of life is Christ and not the law.  It is not a matter of striving, but of trusting.  He lives a holy life, not out of fear of punishment, but out of love to the Son of God, who loved him, and gave Himself for him..."  Spend some time today thinking about that verse.  Not only did Christ give himself for us, He LIVES in us, and we are positionally IN Him!   We are not only saved from the penalty of sin in death, but also from its power over us in life!

Deathly Hallows, Indeed (or..."I need to stop looking at my blog reader")

Every time I refresh my blog reader I am more shocked. Maybe I shouldn't be shocked. Maybe this is a sign of the times, as they say.  Maybe the "Christian" world has just finally gone about as topsy-turvy as it can possibly go. 

But just in case you don't feel fulfilled in your walk with Christ...just in case you are looking for one more substitute for actual study of the Word of can now include (wait for it) the Harry Potter Bible Study to assist you in your "study" of spiritual things.  Subtitle: "Enjoying God Through the Final Four Harry Potter Movies." 

I am not joking. I really wish I was.

I will be honest - I have not read this book (although I have seen the HP movies).  But it is $2.99 in the iTunes store, so I'm really tempted to...even though I'm pretty sure I know what  it's going to say.  

For now I just want to get this news out. I have more to say - but you'll just have to wait. Or say something yourself! ;-)

Why am I not surprised?

I keep trying to think of something to say about this...but it really just speaks for itself.

And yes, that IS Joel Osteen's voice you hear welcoming Oprah over the roar of 40,000 church-goers. 
According to the Houston Chronicle, one person sitting near Oprah at church tweeted, "I'm freaking out!! I can't breathe! It smells like money and amazingness!!" 
Smells like something, all right, but it isn't "amazingness!"
Hmm! Looks like I had something to say about it after all!

It's here!

The brand-spanking-new quarterly e-magazine, Biblical Minute has officially been published and is available for viewing!

From Biblical Intensives: "Biblical Minute is filled with articles that condense important biblical truths into a reader friendly format...In our effort to immerse men and women in the Word of God our articles are graded.  Some material is elementary, some intermediate, and some is more advanced. In this way, we hope to grow folks by 'nudging' them into more advanced topics." 

 And having been part of the editing process for this issue of Biblical Minute, I can tell you that description is spot-on!  Any time you spend with this little magazine will be time well-spent.  

So head on over and have a look-see. Then share it with everyone and anyone!

Time Away...

It's been over a year since I last posted! Can you believe it? I've been praying about starting up the blog again, so don't delete me from your reader just yet. :-)
