God vs. World

God vs. World

Here are my reflections based on Luke 22:63-23:12, MSG. It is pretty tough to read this text. It feels bad to see how terribly Jesus was treated. It feels bad to think that we are capable to do such horrible things. It feels bad to think that we would turn our backs to Jesus wanting his death when it would be for our benefit to do against God’s will. This Bible story illustrates, however, that God’s will will happen no…

Breath of God

Breath of God

It’s Melodic Monday! Today’s song is Shane and Shane‘s Breath of God. (Music by Shane Barnard & Caleb Carruth, lyrics by Shane Barnard.) This song is perfect for the Holy Week. Here are the lyrics: A life you cannot defineA purpose thats benignThey need to see and believeBe led to the rugged treeThe one on which he cried not for his pain but for our debtThe very same tree that He conquered deathIt was an unfair deal on the part…

God, God…my God! Psalm 22

God, God…my God! Psalm 22

God, God…my God! Why did you dump me miles from nowhere?Doubled up with pain, I call to God all the day long. No answer. Nothing.I keep at it all night, tossing and turning. And you! Are you indifferent, above it all, leaning back on the cushions of Israel’s praise?We know you were there for our parents: they cried for your help and you gave it; they trusted and lived a good life. And here I am, a nothing—an earthworm, something…

God Is Good – Psalm 73

God Is Good – Psalm 73

No doubt about it! God is good— good to good people, good to the good-hearted.But I nearly missed it, missed seeing his goodness. I was looking the other way, looking up to the people At the top, envying the wicked who have it made,Who have nothing to worry about, not a care in the whole wide world. Pretentious with arrogance, they wear the latest fashions in violence,Pampered and overfed, decked out in silk bows of silliness.They jeer, using words to…

The Case of Wild Grace

The Case of Wild Grace

Okay. I thought I’d better explain why I am so in love with Wild Grace! (Romans 5:1, MSG) pretty much sums up the case of Wild Grace: By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he…
