The Slavery of Loving One Another

The Slavery of Loving One Another

“But through love serve one another.”—Galatians 5:13c

This is a very interesting statement.  In the context the Apostle is admonishing the believers not to be enslaved again to the various rites and rituals of the law.  He affirms that Christ has fulfilled the Law, that in Christ they have been set free from the Law, and that they are called to freedom.

The Fear of the Lord is to Hope in His Mercy

The Fear of the Lord is to Hope in His Mercy

 

“His delight is not in the strength of a horse, nor his pleasure in the legs of a man, but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love.” Psalm 147:10-11

The fear of the Lord is a multi-faceted concept in Scripture. In Psalm 147:10 the fear of the Lord is equated with hoping in the loving kindness, the mercy, the steadfast love of the Lord. (more…)

Be Pressed into Christ’s Mold

Be Pressed into Christ’s Mold

 

“Do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind . . .” —Romans 12:2a

In my desk, I have an embossing stamp that I use to mark my books and identify them as belonging to my library. It is a simple tool that has two matching plates, one is raised and the other is recessed, both having the identical inscription. To use it, you simply slide a page between the two plates and squeeze them together using the plyer-like handles. The paper is pressed into the mold of the plates, and the result is a page clearly embossed with the words, “from the library of R. Guy Shields”. With this tool I mark my books as mine. They bear my mark and are clearly identified as belong to me. (more…)

He has Risen

 

 

“He is not here, but has risen.”—Luke 24:6

These words, spoken by the angels to the women who came in the early dawn to visit Jesus’ tomb, are among the most significant words ever to fall on human ears. I would go further and say they are the most significant, in part, because of what they mean for lost and dying humanity. They are words of joy, words of love, and words of hope.They are words of joy because they convey the reality that death has been conquered, the penalty of sin has been paid, and the way to eternal life in relationship with God has been opened.

The Fame of His Name

The Fame of His Name

Mention the name Wayne Gretzky north of the 49th parallel (and to be fair, in some places south of the 49th parallel as well) and everybody knows immediately who you are talking about. Even after his retirement from professional hockey over a decade ago he is still a household name in many places. To many adoring fans he is known simply as “The Great One”. (more…)
