WHY DO WE LACK STRENGTH FROM TIME TO TIME? “Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 I’ve been thinking – “why do so many Christians lack strength in their daily walk with the Lord?” We know God is our strength…

RWM Blog November 2022 – “Fake News”

Fake news – by Judith A. Thompson (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Fake news websites (also referred to as hoax news[1][2]) deliberately publish hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation purporting to be real news—often using social media to drive web traffic and amplify their effect.[3][4][5] Unlike news satire, fake news websites seek to mislead rather than entertain readers, often for financial or political gain.[6][4] Such sites have promoted political falsehoods in Germany,[7][8] Indonesia and the Philippines,[9] Sweden,[10][11] Myanmar,[12] and the United States.[13][14][15] Many sites originate, or are promoted, from Russia,[3][13][16] Macedonia,[17][18] Romania,[19] and the United States.[20][21] The other day I noticed a…

I’d like to share a thought I believe the Lord gave me regarding entitlement and the ongoing struggle that so many Christians have when they lose sight of the awesome privilege of God’s grace.  I can best illustrate this concept with a story. An adult visits his parents at their home for a two-week stay. He is very close to them, but has been living in another country for some time. During his visit, he falls into his old habits…

Sin, Grace and Sincerity by Jason Caywood Recently I heard a story of a family friend who was a believer and is now in the Lord’s Presence due to the passing of death. At one point in his life he realized that he needed the Lord Jesus to save him. He told a friend, “My heart is black and full of sin.” He knew that he needed the grace the Gospel proclaims and did embrace the Lord Jesus and he…

Addiction as a Negative Mirror of the Law by Jason Caywood              Life experience can be and should be for us a potent tool in God’s hands. That is, if one is willing to open one’s will to listen to wisdom and discretion. The key is always our willingness to listen and thus heed the truth we know. Yet the Lord never ceases to bear witness to the truth and to lovingly guide those willing to heed him. In my experience…

RW Blog – MAY 2022

Facebook has had it’s pros and cons… …but one thing is for sure…I’m thankful for the ability to keep in contact with all those who I have had the privilege to cross paths with and come to know. Some of you are close friends and others are acquaintances – nevertheless as I scroll down my “Friends” list I have nothing but love and fond memories. Sometimes I feel loneliness because I can’t see you more often. When there is love in…

What IS real repentance? 2 Kings 22-23:25 22:11 “When the king heard what was written in the book, God’s Revelation, he ripped his robes in dismay.” (Message) “The impressions which the reading of the law made upon Josiah were that he rent his clothes, as one ashamed of the sin of his people and afraid of the wrath of God; he had long thought his kingdom was in a bad state, by reason of the idolatries and impieties that had…

The Gift of Disruptionby Jason Caywood What strange circumstances have been thrust upon us these last couple of years. Much has been said about the impact of the spread of the covid-19 virus, from concerns about economic impact, people losing their jobs, concerns for public health and the impeding of civil and constitutional rights by officials in government. Many more words, both useful and useless, will pour forth in the coming months and years. I have been pondering these questions:…
