Day 2 - 90 Day Adventure through the Bible

Read Genesis Chapters 5-8 Today, again, we are presented first with a birds-eye view before zooming back into the main story.  In chapter 5 we see the genealogy of Adam's descendants to Noah.  You'll notice in the reading a consistent almost rhythmic pattern as the genealogy is told.  There are only two exceptions and these are meant to get our attention.  The first occurs in verses 21-24.  Here we learn about Enoch.  Enoch, we are told was a man of God, he walked with God (like Adam).  We are also led to believe that he didn't die but was rather...

Day 1 - 90 Day Adventure through the Bible

Read Genesis Chapter 1-4 Our adventure begins today and it begins in the beginning.  We are given two creation accounts.  The first, Genesis 1:1 - 2:3, gives us a broad overview of the creation of all that is.  We see this creation account from a great distance.  We see chaos and disorder become the cosmos and formed into a hierarchical order culminating with the creation of man. While reading this creation story I'm reminded of C.S. Lewis' book in the Chronicle's of Narnia series, The Magician's Nephew.  In this book we are first introduced to the world of Narnia and...

3 Gift Ideas that put Christ back in Christmas

Giving God my Leftovers

Giving God my Leftovers

Luke 21:1-4 "And what I have leftover, I give unto you O Lord!" Of course I would never pray that privately or out loud. Yet, that is often the way I live. I often give the Lord leftovers. I give money that I can part with. I give my time in prayer when I can fit it in. I seek to help others when I am not busy with my own cares. Leftovers. What if I did that with my other personal relationships? What would my life be like if I gave my family the money I have leftover after...

Is this your King?

Solemnity of the Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe Luke 23:35-43 "And over his head they put a charge against him, which read, "This is Jesus the King of the Jews."   Then two robbers were crucified with him, one on the right  and one on the left."  Matthew 27:37-38 The world asks: Is this your king?  Is this the one who rules over your life?  This one, here in the middle, bruised with flesh torn to pieces, pierced in hand and foot!  Is this your king? Is this the one who teaches you day by day by word and...
