The Wise Woman Builds Her House :: Quietly Through Thursday (Plus LinkUp)

The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands. Proverbs 14:1 When I read this verse Monday morning I had just finished day one of the new Hello Mornings study, At My Savior’s Feet (aff. link). The parable of that day’s focus? Build on a Rock. 46 “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?47 Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug […]

John, the Disciple Whom Jesus Loved

Today I’m over at DoNotDepart.com sharing a few interesting facts about John, “the disciple whom Jesus love.” The Disciple Whom Jesus Loved Today in our series on the New Testament writers we focus on the Apostle John, the man who referred to himself as the “disciple whom Jesus loved.” The truth is that anyone of the disciples could have said this about themselves. Jesus did (and does) love all of them, but I think this statement tells a little bit about John’s relationship with Jesus. John knew He was loved. And when we know we […]

John answered, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven. You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent before Him.’ “He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. “He must increase, but I must decrease. “He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of […]

And the Lord Turned and Looked :: Quietly Through Thursday {Plus Link-Share}

But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are saying!” Immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowded. And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.”  So Peter went out and wept bitterly. (Luke 22:60-62) And the Lord turned and looked at him. The Lord. Jesus. The Man who said, “Peter, you are going to reject Me, deny Me, turn your back on Me.” When Peter did what […]
