The One I Cannot Face: A Short Story — King’s Recorder

Wow. This story written by Joah Pearson was such an amazing read! This is certainly a must-read! It’s a story of the marvelous and wonderful gift of salvation from God to undeserving sinners.

King's Recorder

He will be here soon – the one I cannot face.

I hear his footsteps even now, and my heart cringes at every stomp of his heavy boots. It won’t be long now – he will stream right through my apartment door, solid though it is. He will march his way right up to my bedside and look me in the eye, glaring with passionate glee – but I will not be able to meet his gaze. Even if I had my strength, I would not be able to face him, but as it is, I can do nothing but cower. Cancer has sucked my body dry, swallowing my strength.

Now I hear the crunch of gravel as my son Forrest drives up. He has taken care of me these past few weeks since the diagnosis. I hear his footsteps as he makes his way into the apartment complex and…

Where We Went Wrong With Ravi Zacharias — Video by Living Waters

“And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.

For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.”

— 1 Corinthians 2:1-16

Year-end Hymn Medley!

The year is about to change from 2020 to 2021! Let’s end the blog posts for this year with this awesome hymn medley sung by Lena Maria in Swedish and English!

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for this year. This year was a hard one for us, but Lord, You have helped us through. Help us to always trust in You in all circumstances. Help us in the next year, too. Thank You for all the blessings You so graciously grant unto us who are so unworthy of anything but death. Thank You most of all for the free gift of grace granted to us through the substitutionary and satisfactory sacrifice and death of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the King of kings and Lord and lords, who is now seated at the right hand of God making intercession for His elect people. Help us to have our one and only hope in Jesus Christ our God, the Creator of the earth and Savior of His people, the sheep of His pasture. May we be found faithful unto You, always abounding in the work of spreading the gospel, and anticipating the return of Jesus Christ our eternal King at the end of the world. Amen.

“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”

— Revelation 22:20-21

The Theology of Christmas

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

— Philippians 2:5-11
