Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

It Will Be All About Him


Mark 13:26- “At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.”















Not too long ago, several Hollywood movie stars were asked what it was about them that they thought caught the attention of audiences.

One said it was her outrageous costumes.

Another said it was her outspokenness.

A third said it was all about her entrances, referring to her most recent one—a drop from a helicopter onto a glittering stage. “Millions of fans watched it,” she gushed.

Jesus had a remarkable, but humble, entrance onto the earth—a baby born in a stable in Bethlehem.

He rode a lowly donkey into Jerusalem prior to his crucifixion.

No, our King didn’t choose accolades, glitter, or glitz.

But, He will come again…with the great Trumpet sound…with voices of a myriad angelic hosts…

It will be all about Him. All eyes will see. Every knee shall bow.

The King of King and Lord of Lords will have our attention—not because of his attire or public relations ploys, but because of who He is—our Savior.

He will abolish evil for all time and eternity and establish His reign of peace and righteousness.

As we celebrate His resurrection,  we also look forward to His coming, again.

No Language Barrier



Acts 2:5-8 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language?”


A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I went to a Valentine celebration—complete with wonderful Mexican food and Mariachis.

We had a great time visiting with English-speaking friends, but it was difficult to talk with the other guests that did not speak “our” language.

There was only a certain amount of smiling and gesturing we could do to communicate with our gracious hosts. The language barrier prevented us from letting them know just how much we appreciated the invitation and enjoyed the evening.

Driving home, I thought of the scripture above and how nice it would have been for us to have heard each other in our own language.

You know, God hears our prayers—and our praises—no matter what language we speak…and through His Word and His Holy Spirit, He communicates with us.

With God, there is no language barrier.

No matter what our nationality, each of us hears Him in our own language.

Utterly amazing.
