The Disciples Tongue and Ear (Isaiah 50:4)

The Lord He is God. He created heaven and earth and all that is in them. He created what is seen with the eye and what is unseen. He created our inward parts and knitted us together in our mother’s womb. We were hidden but then revealed at birth.

A true disciple becomes like his teacher. The Lord Jesus Christ sustained the weary one with a word; therefore, His disciples sustain the weary one with a word.

Isaiah is an interesting book and interpretation has been difficult for some. Who is the servant of the Lord? Isaiah, like all of the Old Testament books must be interpreted through the lens of the New Testament. The servant of the Lord is the Lord Jesus Christ and His disciples.

The Lord awakens His disciples morning by morning. It is the Lord who gives to His disciples ears to listen as disciples. Jesus Christ is the disciple of the Lord and He is the Lord. God taught Him as a man and He is God in human flesh. 

It is the Lord who awakens me morning by morning. It is the Lord who awakens my ear to listen as a disciple. The Lord both gives me the tongue of a disciple and the ear of a disciple. The Lord is sovereign over the tongue and the ear, yet each of us is responsible for the things that we say and we are responsible to listen to the Word.

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

William George Davis, RN

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
