"SWEPT CLEAN"

The salty beach air quickly drew Ed into a deep sleep. Within seconds he suddenly awakened and told me of his silly dream. With business on his mind while we were vacationing for a few days, he dreamed about his guy’s back home working. In dreamland he was informing them that he had ordered a new tool for them. He emphatically told them that they did not need to wait for his return before using it. Funny thing is, the tool was a dustpan. A dustpan is for removing dirt, trash, and waste. The floor is swept clean but then must be swept into the dustpan and thrown out. Please tell me that some of you have done the same as I. In a pinch, instead of taking time to grab the dustpan and totally re

Awake and Alert

And [I pray] that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by the Holy Spirit], so that you will know and cherish the [a]hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the [b]saints (God’s people), 19 and [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe.

I can hardly believe that as Jesus was knowingly facing the cross, He took time to sit with His disciples for a meal. This wasn’t just any meal, but an observance of the Feast of Unleavened Bread; the Passover meal. The disciples knew well the historical event of Israel’s deliverance from slavery, but at this table Jesus took an old symbol and filled it with new meaning. They didn’t understand until after the resurrection that now this meal represented His atoning sacrifice. It all pointed to His death, buria

Meet Me at the Table - Part 2

You can read "Meet Me At The Table"- Part 1 (Click Here) “ Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.” Revelation 3:20 In my mind’s eye, I can still see the picture hanging on my primary Sunday School room. There on the outside of the closed door stood Jesus knocking. I was taught that He knocks longing to come into my heart and save me from my sin. It was portrayed to me as a picture of salvation, yet in scripture this verse was written to the church. It is at the heart of the believer that he knocks longing to share intimate fellowship. There was a serious issue that had to be settled bef
