Suffering Like Jesus

This is the third in the Restart series on trials, difficulties and sufferings taken from the Book of First Peter. The first installment helped us to see that our tough times can be a route to Joy if we would only stop long enough to turn from what things we don’t have to meditate on the things we do. That we can actually turn us closer to Christ, through the things…

Sufferings to Holiness

In our Introduction to the book of First Peter, we discovered that this little five chapter book is a book about suffering.  We learned how singularity qualified this vulnerable and effusive man is in guiding you and I through the difficulties of life. This lesson begins at verse 13 of the first chapter where we find the beginnings of a rich vein of Bible Truth. Here…

Sufferings in Our Security Bring Joy

How can you explain why difficulties come? One moment you are in your own lane, moving at the posted rate of speed. And in the next, the waves splash high over your head. We have a true Friend in Peter. As we learned in our Introduction to First Peter this is a man uniquely qualified to speak about trials and sufferings. We begin at verse 3 (Restart will return to the…

The 7 Deadly Sins – Gluttony

Gluttony is Overeating, Right? Well, yes.  But the climb to Bible Ground reveals it is much more.  Gluttony is the sickness of becoming insatiable after anything.  It could be money or power. We can be selfish about the sanctity of our own time.  We get cranky when people or activities put a crimp on our personal time.  We begin to dodge responsibility to wallow in our…

Recovery, 2 of 5 – How Change Happens Part 2

Five Instructions about Recovery We all have something that bothers our way along the Jesus Path.   What’s got you held up in your walk?  What makes you stumble?  Perhaps it’s a destructive habit – but it doesn’t have to be.  What is it you find yourself doing that you’d not want to do…

Yom Kippur a Resolution for Activism

So What’s With Yom Kippur? Yom Kippur is “The Day of Atonement” the most high and holy day of the Hebrew calendar.  This day is so important that obserences of it take place 40 days before.   Beginning on the 40th day, the Shofar (ram’s horn) is blown every morning.  By the way the left horn of the Ram was called the FIRST TRUMP and the right horn…

Why Doesn’t God Hear Me?

Why do my prayers get stuck? I know it says in John 3:16 ‘”For God so LOVED the world”; I know Jeremiah wrote (31:3)  “I have loved thee with an everlasting love.” – but my prayer life does not reflect that intimacy.  Why i am not feeling it? What about that crisis i am in?  What about that job, that relationship, that difficulty, that…

Peacemaker

What’s a Peacemaker? Hullo Friend.  Thank you for working through our library and finding this entry on the bookshelf.   The focus here is about becoming a Peacemaker and investigating its reward; being called a Child of God.  I must warn you however, my discoveries here reveal a very difficult and arduous stretch of the Jesus Path.  Becoming a Peacemaker is…
