Godless-centered Foolishness

Sharing in The Master’s Happiness

If by some very unique way I was able to transport myself back to the spring of 33 A.D., to ask this Jewish Rabbi from Nazareth a question or two, exactly what is it that I would ask Him? What would be my most important thoughts or real life, pressing personal crises that would drive me to seek after Him as He and His selected disciples were making their way from Bethany, to celebrate the High Holy Day of Passover in…

The Image and Virtue of True Greatness

Humility and Serving Others

The Master having all authority over all things invites the disciples to consider one of the most revolutionary spiritual new norm of greatness within the Kingdom of God. He examines their hearts and motives in an effort to communicate to them and all other disciples to follow, that greatness, preeminence and a sense of importance come by humility and service.…

Humility as Our Spiritual Compass

Within the short span of less than a week, I have witnessed up and in person, the very extreme warring fraction between two of this life’s greatest events, the gift of living in this life and fear and uncertainty of death of life as we know it. In my spiritual reflective time over the last two days, my concern and focus were redirected to what the very essence of this blog post wishes to communicate, just how do we successfully navigate between our living and our…

His Name will be Called, Emmanuel.

For me, there really is not any other clearer depiction of where to find God! God is never far off, for where ever there is harm and danger, where ever there is tension between life and death, God is with us, as He places Himself in harm’s way, suffering with us while simultaneously liberating us toward wholeness and spiritual emancipation

Please consider my recent blog post, "His Name will be…

The Only True Love is Absolute

Two of my greatest spiritual experiences that I have still continue to yield life-changing results in my life on a regular basis. The first is God offering and then granting me soul salvation, and the second is God’s unconditional love for me as I continue to work out my soul salvation moment by moment.

Please consider my latest blog post: The Only True Love is Absolute.…

Open Prayer and Love Letter to the Beloved Community.

Excerpt from my latest blog post: "Open Prayer and Love Letter to the Beloved Community."

Be forever reminded that as Saints, each of us have a spiritually endowed character that is being forged each day by God, as we are separated by His grace, with the very best of our Father’s will working externally and internally on our behalf; for we are His workmanship, God and only God has the ultimate responsibility to complete the work within each of us who remain faithful and obedient…
