O Little Town of Bethlehem

It has been said, the two most important days in a persons life is the day they are born and the day they learn why.

Let’s Sing: The Hallelujah Chorus

This is the third post in the blog series Let’s Sing. To find the other posted Carols of the season, see the index, https://revbroyles.me/2020/12/06/lets-sing/ Well friends, I made a mistake on the calendar. The calendar said, “Come Though Long Expected Jesus” was today’s song. That would have been fine except we just talked about thatContinue reading “Let’s Sing: The Hallelujah Chorus”

Thirty Days of Gratitude – Thankful for Neighbors

10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God. Love One Another 11 This is the message you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another. 12 We must not be likeContinue reading “Thirty Days of Gratitude – Thankful for Neighbors”

Were You Really Blind?

46 Jesus and his followers came into Jericho. As Jesus was leaving Jericho, together with his disciples and a sizable crowd, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, Timaeus’ son, was sitting beside the road. 47 When he heard that Jesus of Nazareth was there, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, show me mercy!” 48 Many scolded him, telling himContinue reading “Were You Really Blind?”

Silence, Be Still???

35 Later that day, when evening came, Jesus said to them, “Let’s cross over to the other side of the lake.” 36 They left the crowd and took him in the boat just as he was. Other boats followed along. 37 Gale-force winds arose, and waves crashed against the boat so that the boat was swamped. 38 But Jesus was in theContinue reading “Silence, Be Still???”

Why Me?

23 A person’s steps are made secure by the Lord    when they delight in his way.24 Though they trip up, they won’t be thrown down,    because the Lord holds their hand. (Proverbs 37:23-24, Common English Bible) I know, I am late again. I debated with myself yesterday and ended up not writing at all. I wanted to write today (Monday) but toContinue reading “Why Me?”

A Peeping Tom Story

3 The legal experts and Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery. Placing her in the center of the group, 4 they said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of committing adultery. 5 In the Law, Moses commanded us to stone women like this. What do you say?” 6 They said this to test him because they wantedContinue reading “A Peeping Tom Story”

We Must Be Kind

As I said yesterday, I have had concern for the past couple of years about the way we treat each other. It seems to me that it is easier today to see people being unkind to one another than to find those who spread kindness. I want to live in a kinder world. I wantContinue reading “We Must Be Kind”

We’re Better Together

6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 8 So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, joinContinue reading “We’re Better Together”

Called – Send Me

After that I will pour out my spirit upon everyone;        your sons and your daughters will prophesy,        your old men will dream dreams,        and your young men will see visions.29 In those days, I will also pour out my    spirit on the male and female slaves. 30 I will give signs in the heavens and on the earth—blood and fire andContinue reading “Called – Send Me”
