The Bible tells us that God made an old covenant (a framework for a relationship) and a new one. The book of Hebrews tells us that Jesus is the Mediator of the new covenant, the Person who is the “Go-Between,” between us and God. He administrates the new covenant, that is, He works in our lives to make the fullness of it, a possessed reality. The details of that covenant are ...

abiding in God, in love, and in righteousness brings life and assurance;

abiding in sin, in the world, and in the devil brings death.

v.1      Because of His love for us, God has called us to an identity and reality in Him that the world doesn’t understand or value—being His children.

v.2-3   As a child of God, aspire to have purity like your Father’s, and do your part of realizing it.

An Excerpt from ISAIAH: SETTING THINGS RIGHT

This Bible study, written by Beebe Kauffman (my mother), has helped me to better understand how God works in our lives on a daily basis. He is always working—guiding, transforming, equipping. I want to share with you a passage from Isaiah: Setting Things Right that I love. It describes the sanctification process and how God works in our lives.

What’s involved in God setting things right?

Veterans Day: Remembering and Honoring the Brave

Today we say thank you. We remember the fallen. We honor those who serve. We pray for their protection.

In the 238 years of our country’s existence, thousands of soldiers have fought for our freedom. They pledged their strength, skill, and lives to protect our liberties. Some wrote a blank check, giving their all. In Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, the Washington Post reports that “6,838 U.S. service members have died.”1 Freedom comes at a great cost, and we honor that cost. I also want to honor some people who are special to me. ...

Beautiful in Its Time

 

It takes time to be beautiful. I’m not talking about the makeup we women apply to our faces, although that does take time! It takes time for beautiful things to blossom. I am still waiting for the hydrangea bush in our front yard to bloom. The tiny plant is an inch tall. A stick, really. It may be years before it gets big enough to show off its beautiful blue petals.

I’m also still waiting for some dreams to be realized and for some answers to be given. Why’s and how’s and Please tell me’s. Ecclesiastes 3:11 comforts us that everything will be beautiful in the right timing. In God’s timing. ...
