God’s Transplant Center

God’s Transplant Center

Rebellion has been at the heart of sin and evil ever since its inception beginning with Satan who rose up against God and was cast down from his position of leadership in the heavenlies (Isaiah 14:12-14); he then incited man, God’s chief creation on earth, to rebel resulting in death and expulsion from the garden […]

A New Year, A New Heart, A New You

A New Year, A New Heart, A New You

When Israel left Egypt in Exodus 12, they not only left the old life of Egypt behind, but they became identified as a new people and a new nation, with a new way of life. Keeping this in mind, let us look back at our self in the light of what God has wrought in […]

We’ve Been Given A Living Hope

We’ve Been Given A Living Hope

In 1 Peter 1:3-7, Peter addresses Christians with praise to “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope…” Why is it a living hope? First, because it is established in a living person, “…through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from […]

To Save Or To Lose

To Save Or To Lose

Today, we continue from last weeks meditation, Full Surrender, looking at the picture Jesus drew from Luke 9; but now we’ll focus on Matthew’s account in 16:24-25, and the two words we are emphasizing is “save” and “lose”. In verse 25 He said, “For whoever desires to save his life, will lose it, but whoever […]

God Promises You Will Eat Of The Tree...

God Promises You Will Eat Of The Tree Of Life

In Revelation 2:7, Jesus promises, “To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.” The first time we see this tree is in the Garden of Eden, in Genesis 2:9, where “…the tree of life also (was) in the midst […]

Our Helper

Our Helper

Have you ever gotten to a place where the load is so heavy, the burden so great, and the battle so intense and long that you feel you don’t even know how to pray? Take courage, the Bible says “the Spirit also helps our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for […]

Satisfying Water

Satisfying Water

Continuing to focus on water we read in Revelation 21:6 “…I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.” Nothing can compare to clear cool water to quench the thirst of a hot laborer or a weary traveler! Other liquids may appeal to the taste buds, but they […]

Living Water

Living Water

In another meditation we talk about “Abundant water”; today we are talking about “living water”. This is water that is produced by a pure flowing stream abounding with life giving properties, as opposed to a stagnant pool of water; In a Biblical picture we can compare it to the Sea of Galilee abounding with life, […]

Abundant Blessings

Abundant Blessings

Many participate in “fasting” by abstaining from food, or from certain foods, for a period of time; it has also become popular to abstain from certain things like sports, media, etc. yet results seem minimal at best. In Isaiah 58 Israel also went through forms of “fasting” and seeking God, yet were asking “Why have […]

Peace In The kingdom

Peace In The kingdom

“The kingdom of God is at hand” Mark 1:15 (Matthew is the only gospel that uses the alternate “kingdom of heaven”). The reason the kingdom was near or at hand was because the King was near or at hand. Luke 17:21 says “The kingdom of God is within you”, this occurs when the King comes […]
