If it would bring salvation to one lost person – a week’s pay, your house, maybe even your livelihood? Don’t answer yet…

What a beautiful attitude!

One of my favorite contemporary worship songs is, O Lord, You’re Beautiful by Keith Green.

I call it one of my cry song, because every time I hear it or sing it with our praise team, I cry. It’s a beautiful cry and I’m full of joy when I hear it sung. My favorite lines in the song are in the first verse:

“And when I’m doing well, help me to never seek a crown
For my reward is giving glory to You

What a beautiful attitude: As we serve others, as we love others, as we worship our Almighty Father, to have as our only reward bringing glory to God.

Think about it. The way we relate to others, the way we talk, the way we act, the way we respond in difficult circumstances, the way we respond to injuries, hurts and insults, the way we treat our enemies, the way we serve and love others–all with the attitude of bringing glory to God.

Wouldn’t that be a wonderful, life-changing, world-changing attitude for us to live out each day?

Oh Lord You’re Beautiful
by Keith Green

Oh Lord, You’re beautiful
Your face is all I seek
For when Your eyes are on this child
Your grace abounds to me

I wanna to take Your word and shine it all around
But first help me to just, live it Lord
And when I’m doing well, help me to never seek a crown
For my reward is giving glory to You

Oh Lord, please light the fire
That once burned bright and clear
Replace the lamp of my first love
That burns with holy fear

I want to take Your word and shine it all around
But first help me just to live Lord
And when I’m doing well, help me to never seek a crown
For my reward is giving glory to You

What’s The Goal?

Football coaches set goals. Sales people set goals. Business owners setgoal goals. Charities set fund-raising goals. I don’t set goals.

It appears the Bible doesn’t think much of goals either. Continue reading

Preparing For Your Calling–God’s Blessings

This is the fifth post in the series
By AmandaBeth, Guest Blogger And Author

Preparing For Your Calling — God’s Blessings

In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

—2 Timothy 2:20

This is the fifth message in my series on preparing for your calling. Follow this link to read previous posts in this series Continue reading

Feeding The Multitude

This is a guest blog.

I’m grateful and fortunate to have met a fellow Christian blogger, Terra Newsome, who has a beautiful spirit and a hunger and thirst for God’s direction in her life. Those qualities are poignantly obvious in her writing.  I recently read Feeding The Multitude on her site and I wanted to share it with you. It touched my heart for the homeless, and I’m confident it will touch your hearts as well. I encourage you to visit her blog at Living Simply In Abundance.

Typically this is not like me to write a random post without the leading of the Holy Spirit but then again, this could be such doing and my Continue reading
