Lord, I Love You, But …

Hebrews 6:9-20

Have you ever found yourself thinking, I love you, Jesus, but don’t ask me to do thatOr perhaps you served Him, but your attitude was wrong: If no one else will do it, then I guess I will. What causes us to be reluctant servants?

Busyness: Sometimes our schedules are so full that we don’t allow space to follow the Lord. We need to make sure that we have margin in our life.

Sense of Inadequacy: Maybe you feel unqualified, and you’re thinking, Surely there’s someone more gifted. But rest assured that God promises to equip those He calls (2 Corinthians 3:4-6).

Selfishness: Sacrificial service is not convenient. It may require that we change plans, give up comforts, or make financial sacrifices.

Lack of love: This is the hardest for us to admit—that we just don’t care enough. A reluctance to serve others shows our lack…

Full Attention

StopAndPrayTV

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances.  1 Thessalonians 5:16–18

Technology today seems to demand our constant attention. The modern “miracle” of the internet gives us the amazing capacity to access humanity’s collective learning in the palm of our hand. But for many, such constant access can come at a cost.

Writer Linda Stone has coined the phrase “continual partial attention” to describe the modern impulse to always need to know what’s happening “out there,” to make sure we’re not missing anything. If that sounds like it could produce chronic anxiety, you’re right!

Although the apostle Paul struggled with different reasons for anxiety, he knew our souls are wired to find peace in God. Which is why, in a letter to new believers who’d endured persecution (1 Thessalonians 2:14), Paul concluded by urging the believers to “rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances” (5:16–18).

Praying “continually” might…

VIDEO Take the Leap for Love!

StopAndPrayTV

You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.  Leviticus 19:18

Love didn’t begin in the New Testament. The ethical teachings about loving one’s neighbor began in Leviticus—the heart of the Mosaic Law. So central was the command to love one’s neighbor as oneself that it is quoted seven times in the New Testament: four times in Matthew, Mark, and Luke, by Jesus; twice by Paul (Romans 13:9; Galatians 5:14); and once by James (James 2:8). Jewish religious teachers thought the command to love one’s neighbor implied hating one’s enemy. But Jesus corrected that misinterpretation of Leviticus, saying we are to love both neighbors and enemies (Matthew 5:43-44).

Hopefully, you don’t have enemies. But everyone has neighbors in one form or another. And we are to love both—enemies and neighbors—as we love…

Beyond is lonely

Exploring the epiphany

Recently I always think about
the reason
I write for.
It’s not that
I am published
Or anything.
My words have literally
never gone through
the process of printing.
Although
most of the underground
magazines are crowded with
substantial amount of contents,
i have never seen how it
looks to get your verses
inside those geometrical pages.
There’s a boy around fifteen,
he always
keeps himself
with me.
And he always asks the same question,
why do I have the constant urge to face myself
being completely naked
with thoughts?
A perpetual question,
and I don’t want to be brave enough to answer it.

They Are Written for Our Learning

StopAndPrayTV

“For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” (Romans 15:4)

Let no modern Christian ever think that he can ignore the Old Testament and base all his faith and practice on just the 27 books of the New Testament, as vital as they are. Even the apostle Paul, who wrote more of the New Testament than anyone else, depended heavily on the Old Testament Scriptures for his exposition of the New Testament doctrines he had received “by the revelation of Jesus Christ” (Galatians 1:12).

For example, in the longest and most doctrinal of all his epistles—that is, Romans—he actually quoted from the Old Testament no less than 60 times, even though the epistle had been specifically addressed to Gentiles (Romans 11:13).

In his letter to the Gentiles at Corinth, after an extensive discussion of the…

The Hope for Peace

StopAndPrayTV

Romans 15:4-13

One day Christ will return and make everything right, and until that time believers are called to be His ambassadors of peace. But salvation doesn’t automatically change us into people of kindness and unity. At times we may be quick-tempered and impatient, struggling to live in harmony with others. What’s more, letting go of ingrained attitudes or habits can be difficult, even when clinging to such things causes hurt.

Thankfully, God knows this about us. That’s why He has sent His Holy Spirit to help us understand and apply Scripture, say no to temptation, and replace our priorities with Christ’s. Only He can produce spiritual fruit in us, which includes love, joy, and peace (Gal. 5:22-23). And with His help, we become peacemakers who work to bring about reconciliation between God and others (2 Corinthians 5:18-19). When our hearts are ruled by His peace, our relationships reflect His…

Going, Going, Gone

StopAndPrayTV

Today's DevotionalCast but a glance at riches, and they are gone.  Proverbs 23:5

The mischievous artist Banksy pulled off another practical joke. His painting Girl with Balloon sold for one million pounds at Sotheby’s auction house in London. Moments after the auctioneer yelled “Sold,” an alarm sounded and the painting slipped halfway through a shredder mounted inside the bottom of the frame. Banksy tweeted a picture of bidders gasping at his ruined masterpiece, with the caption, “Going, going, gone.”

Banksy relished pulling one over on the wealthy, but he need not have bothered. Wealth itself has plenty of pranks up its sleeve. God says, “Do not wear yourself out to get rich . . . . Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle” (Proverbs 23:4–5).

Few things are less secure than money. We…

VIDEO Robbing God

StopAndPrayTV

Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me!  Malachi 3:8

In the final book of the Old Testament, the last of the Hebrew prophets urged the Israelites—those who had returned from Babylon to restore the nation of Judah—to make some improvements. The people were lapsing into complacency and apathy. One area that needed changing—their personal giving patterns. They failed to consistently give a tenth of their income to the Lord. Malachi put it as sharply as he knew how. They were robbing God!

“‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it’” (Malachi 3:10, NIV).

This is the only time in Scripture we’re invited to test…

Who’s who on Trump’s impeachment trial legal team

Jim Campbell's

It use to be if you wanted to keep score a ball game, all you needed to do was buy a scorecard and then know the numbers of the players.

The U.S. Senate Impeachment proceeds are taking so long that I took the time to prepare a score card for those involved in the President’s defense.

Washington (AP) — President Donald Trump’s legal advocates for his Senate impeachment trial will include a pair of well-known attorneys who have vigorously defended Trump on television and played roles in some of the most consequential legal dramas in recent history.

Among those assisting White House counsel Pat Cipollone and longtime Trump attorney Jay Sekulow on the defense will be Ken Starr, the independent counsel who investigated former President Bill Clinton.

Former Harvard University law professor Alan Dershowitz also will play a role.

Here’s a look at who’s who.
