Understanding Makes a Difference

Abi & Justice Our cat, Abi, loves our dog, Justice.

Justice fears Abi.

It probably stems from Justice’s first night in our home. Our previous cat, Noir, jumped on his head and attempted to shred his face.

Noir didn’t understand Justice would never hurt her. Now Justice can’t understand Abi won’t hurt him.

So, for the last seven years, Justice squirms away in fear whenever Abi rubs against his legs.

What we know and understand makes a difference.

In Part 1, we looked at what it means that God is All-Knowing. Today, we’ll consider how understanding that makes a difference in our lives today.  [Read more…]

God – The Ultimate Know-It-All (Part 1)

 

Mensa, otherwise known as The Society of Know-It-Alls, admitted little Elise Tan-Roberts into their club in 2009 when she was only 845 days old.

At 2-years old, her IQ was 156, just short of Albert Einstein’s 160. Not too shabby.

She could talk at 5-months old.

She could recite 35 of the world’s capitals at age 2.

Imagine what God’s IQ is if it could be measured? [Read more…]

Sick of WHAT, Give me WHO — Reading the Bible for Transformation, Not Information

Reading the Bible seem boring or discouraging? Start looking for the WHO (the Lord), not the WHAT (the rules). I was sick of the WHAT until I found the WHO. Reading the Bible for Transformation, Not Information via www.jeanwilund.com

Sick of What. Give me Who.

I stared at my Bible and thought, I really should read it, but I don’t want to.

Tired of being reminded of all the commands I’d break before bedtime — before breakfast if I’m being honest — I sighed.

How do some Christians live with power and faith that could move mountains — perhaps even literally — and I just live? I know there’s more to this Christian life than existence! What am I missing?

And then a thought struck me.

I bet the answer is in the Bible. Perhaps it’s time to read the whole thing. 

I picked up my Bible and prayed, “Show me Yourself, God, on every page. I’m sick of rules to keep in hopes of becoming a better Christian. I just want to see You, Lord. Amen.”

I wanted transformation, not information — the Who of the Bible, not the What.

I was sick of What. Give me Who. Please!

God is Eternal (From the Never-Ending, Ever-Growing List of the Character Traits of God)

God is Eternal: From the Never-ending, Ever-growing List of the Character Traits of God. (www.JeanWilund.com)

They say,” Nothing lasts forever.” 

They are wrong. 

Three things last forever:

God,

His Word, 

and People.

These three live forever, but one of these things is not like the other, as in eternal from eternity past into eternity future.

Let’s take a look. [Read more…]
