Death Of Yolo by Jefferson Bethke

A tip to the oldsters: YOLO is an acronym for “You Only Live Once.”Click here for video1) What was the inspiration for this poem?The inspiration behind this poem was just digging a little deeper into Romans 6. I realized even though we affirm the resurrection we really don’t live as if it’s true. Thinking about the fact that Jesus was really dead between the cross and the resurrection let it sink in a little more. Trying to put ourselves in the shoes of the disciples makes us realize just … [Read more...]

God Does Not Need Middle Management by Robert Ricciardelli

This is going to all Popes, Apostles, Prophets, Bishops, Priests, and Pastors and any other leader who has influence over people. God relates with you directly, and does not need you to get between his relationships with others, as He desires to relate with them directly. You are called to point people to God and not to yourself or any other system or agenda. When you command that they look at you, serve you, get answers from you, you begin to minimize, dilute, and most times get in the way of … [Read more...]

Please Pause for This Post-Election by Lee Grady

After this bitterly divisive election, the Lord’s Prayer can reunite us. Please pray it often.Election 2012 was a bitter contest. As of Wednesday night—when my home state of Florida was still counting ballots—President Obama had 59.6 million votes compared to Mitt Romney’s 56.9 million. Democrats still control the Senate and Republicans still control the House. The political gridlock of the past four years is here to stay.We are a very, very divided nation. We are split on so many levels— … [Read more...]

Vision: The Father of Restraint by Marc Brisebois

Where there is no vision the people perish (Proverbs 29:18)The New International Version shares this verse a little differently saying, ‘Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint’. Vision is the father of restraint. It gives one the power to bring under control the usual need for short-term gratification. The one able to see the end from the beginning can endure far more than the one who lives in the moment. This is of particular importance as it pertains to trials. When we lack v … [Read more...]

The Land of In Between by James Ryle

And He said to them, “You yourselves come apart into a deserted place, and rest a little. For those coming and those going were many, and they did not even have opportunity to eat.” (Mark 6:31, Living Bible)The Scripture tells us that the Lord called the disciples to a desert place to get some rest. They had seen great ministry prior to their desert experience. And, given what we know of the rest of the story, they went on to even greater ministry after the desert experience was fini … [Read more...]

“Deers Cry” by St. Patrick

I love this song, lyrics are shown too. Sung by Ireland's Rita Connolly"The Deer's Cry", attributed to St Patrick, is known by several names: "The Breastplate of St Patrick" and "Lorica" to mention two. It is a beautiful prayer celebrating a God who lives with his children, guiding them, sheltering them, strengthening them. A God who is with us and in us through his Creation. In 1994 Irish composer Shaun Davey put a section of the Breastplate to some wonderful music in his CD "The Pilgrim". … [Read more...]

The Great Fear and the Great Faith by R.J. Rushdoony

 Otto J. Scott, in Robespierre, The Voice of Virtue, calls attention to all important phenomenon of the French Revolution, The Great Fear. At a certain point, as corrosion began to destroy all forms of social order, wild rumors circulated through all of France. Fears of invasion, of disintegration, and chaos "destroyed the sense of stability and security essential to civilized patterns and orderly ways." Evil seemed to have become incarnate and dominant over history. "There was a general, un … [Read more...]
