Come and See

I finished writing the book manuscript, Come and See: The Meaning and Wonder of the Life of Jesus. It has been wonderful meditating on the life of Jesus, once again, from His birth to resurrection. Here is the Introduction that spells out my vision for the project. I ask for your prayers as I seek the publishing avenue God wants for this project.     INTRODUCTION   The first red letter words of Jesus in the Gospel of John is “What do you want?” It is quite telling that these words thrust Jesus into public ministry. Put in context, Jesus posed the question to John and Andrew at first sight, the moment they caught up to him.

In A Garden – The Love Story of Resurrection Day

Kissed by God

Kissed by God

Besides dying for our sins and ending our separation from God by doing so, Jesus showed us God’s heart: God WANTS us. Many years ago, when I was on a private retreat, I was listening to tapes on experiencing a close relationship with God. The teacher had this prayer exercise: “Ask the Lord what He likes about you.” I wrote the question in my prayer journal and waited for an answer. God’s words immediately bubbled up within me: “I love how you think of Me as a person.” This amazed and delighted me. Yet how often have we heard the words that God wants to have a personal relationship with us? Of course He’s a person. Imagine, this is what He yearns for, to be known by each of us. Once we know Him, we know we are His beloved....
