What is the Standard of God's Glory


The meaning of this verse is amazingly profound and a truth beyond that of mere men; "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," ~Rom.3.23.NASB. I have spent much time contemplating Romans chapter 3 and especially Romans 3:21-26, which is at the heart of the gospel. I had so focused in on Romans 3:25 and especially propitiation that I missed something, the heart of this passage is not propitiation, it is the Glory of God. What is the glory of God? What is the standard of God's glory? Think about these words, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". Jesus Christ is the glory of God, Jesus Christ is the standard of God's glory. Therefore when the scripture says, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God", what it is saying is this. YOU HAVE MISSED THE MARK OF GOD'S GLORY, WHICH IS TO LIVE A LIFE JUST LIKE THAT OF GOD'S SON, JESUS CHRIST. Jesus Christ the only Man to live, who never sinned, gave up His life as a ransom for all who repent and receive Him as Lord and savior by faith, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Repent and receive Jesus Christ as both Lord and Savior by faith.

Suffering and Death in the ICU

Suffering: The state of undergoing pain, distress, or hardship.[1]Death: The end of the life of a person.[2]Intensive Care Unit: A department of a hospital in which patients who are dangerously ill are kept under constant observation.[3] I cannot continue doing what I have done for the past 21 years. My last day in the intensive care unit will be January 4, 2019. I will be transitioning to Cardiac Rehabilitation. This will be a completely different type of nursing. Cardiac Rehabilitation combines my love of aerobic exercise, knowledge of cardiology and love of people suffering with heart disease. I will be able to invest in their lives in a way that I was never able to do before.  These past 5 days are an example of what my work has been like for the past 21 years: I worked 4, 12 ½ hour shifts. I took care of 10 persons, all of whom suffered but some greater than others. A woman 10 years younger than I suffered a myocardial infarction (heart attack); a woman suffered greatly in the i…

Please, Please, Please Open Your Mouth and Preach the Gospel!

Please, Please, Please open your mouth and preach the gospel! Recently I was asked to do two things: 1) Think back to my own experience of how I was evangelized and describe the experience. 2) If I could go back and give advice to the person or people who ministered to me what would it be?  I began running as a young child. At the age of 5, I ran my first mile with my dad. At the age of 10, I wanted a pair of running shoes like the big runner’s wear. My dad challenged me, if I could run 5 consecutive miles at less than 8 minutes per mile he would by me a pair of running shoes. I met the challenge and he bought me the shoes. While at the runner’s store there was a flyer for an upcoming 10k race. My dad signed us both up for the race. The next year my dad was too busy with work to run with me, but we had new neighbors across the street. I noticed that this man would come home every evening and go for a run. I began running with him, at the time he was pursuing a doctorate at D. T. S., …

Evangelism and Discipleship

The defining mission of the church is to make disciples of all the nations, initiate the new disciples into fellowship through the ordinance of baptism in the name of the Triune God and teach them to observe all that Jesus commanded the first disciples; doing so by the power of the Holy Spirit. For this reason, Matthew 28:18-20 has been called the great commission because Jesus, who has all authority in heaven and on earth (Mt 28:18) commissioned his disciples to do just that. There is an utterance of this great commission at the end of each gospel account and the beginning of Acts. (cf. Mk 16:15, Lk 24:46-48, Jn 20:21, and Acts 1:8) Why? Because evangelism and discipleship are the church’s purpose for existing. For this reason, evangelism and discipleship cannot be separated. They are wholly dependent on one another. Jesus did not commission his disciples at the beginning of his ministry, but at the conclusion, and before his ascension. However, He did send them out on practice evang…
