Walking in the Footsteps

I was surprised and moved to find out, through reading Jonathan Feldstein’s article this morning, that astronaut Neil Armstrong [first man to step on the moon] while visiting Israel in 1994, said to his archaeologist guide, standing on the old Temple steps, “So Jesus stepped right here?” The guide said these are original steps and Jesus often went to Temple, so yes, Jesus walked on those stones.

Quoting from Feldstein’s article [Jonathan Feldstein] “I have to tell you,” Armstrong said to the Israeli archaeologist, “I am more excited stepping on these stones than I was stepping on the moon.”

Think of that my friends! To be so moved by the reality of walking on the very stones that Jesus the Christ, the eternal Son of God, walked! Many still deny that Jesus Christ even existed, which I find extremely hard to go along with for many reasons, but also because we have first century Jewish and pagan historians writing about the real Jesus and His activities. The reality of Jesus many will accept; but the sticking point is…who Jesus is. Some will say He was just a good man. He was a teacher/Rabbi. He is God. He was a prophet.

Who do you think Jesus is? Your answer will impact your eternal destiny!

I know, beyond a shadow of doubt, who Jesus is; He is all those things previously mentioned, all in one LORD and Savior Christ. It is no surprise in our relativist world of self-indulgence and no absolute truths that church membership is forgetting who Jesus really is, for if we had the excitement of Neil Armstrong walking in the footsteps of Jesus, we would have full churches singing the roof off for the indescribable glory and reality of our risen Savior and LORD.


There is Always Time to do…

In one of my daily devotionals from “Truth for Life”, I saw this small piece of text years ago. It is from C. H. Spurgeon and updated by Alistair Begg at Truth for Life and published by Good News Publishers (2003). It is good and worth revisiting every now and then. Somehow, as I reflect on my 50th High School Reunion, current weather events, volcanoes in the world, family life and death, it called me back again to share this portion with you.

“Reader, if you are not yet saved, may your heart, in keeping with the universal awakening of nature, be opened to receive the Lord. Every blossoming flower warns you that it is time to seek the Lord; do not be out of tune with nature, but let your heart bud and bloom with holy desires. If you tell me that the warm blood of youth leaps in your veins, then I entreat you, give your vigor to the Lord. It was my unspeakable happiness to be called in early youth, and I am thankful to the Lord every day for that. Salvation is priceless, let it come when it may, but oh, an early salvation has a double value in it.”

Have you thought of the value of time as it is reflected in nature? Every season has it’s time…time for this and time for that…new life and new beginnings happen annually. We have a chance at new life and new beginnings every day; all you need to do is to turn toward the Lord, your Savior and Creator. Perspective comes in many forms; a chance at a wake-up call is a blessing not to be overlooked. Why not take a walk, study a new blossoming flower and think about your life and the directions you should go. Blessings to you!

Want to Change Your Life? Try this Every Morning!

We Christians often will say that Jesus is my Lord and Savior, and rightly so, for He is! But in addition to this truth, I would like for you to try something new, starting this Easter. A saying you probably have repeated before, but I wish to challenge you to say it everyday this year and mean it; don’t just repeat empty words but concentrate on each simple word: “This is the day that the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!”

What if you started everyday with this statement before you got out of bed, and then lived the day in rejoicing God’s creation and creatures? What a difference your outlook would be! How much different would your speech be knowing you are talking to one of God’s creations? Whether they know or believe in God doesn’t matter; the Creator still loves them and so should you. Would your morning commute be more friendly? How much better could you cope with life’s problems knowing that YOU are a blessing from God? We all have problems, but knowing that the day was a gift to YOU from God should make a huge difference to you! Know that you are loved by God (John 3:16-18)! Sing out everyday inspite of those nay-sayers all around you, “This is the day that the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!”

Trees are known by their fruit

“A Different Kind of Tree” is a book about life. It is a book about how and where you get nourishment; a book about where you have planted your roots and what fruit you bear. Everybody bears fruit; the only question is: Is your fruit good or bad? Is what you do of a positive impact on others or is it of negative impact? This book is about growing in the LORD, if you love the world and it’s evil, you are not in the LORD (1 John 2:15-17); it is about the decisions you make in life. Each Chapter starts out with a portion of my true life story because this book is also about “the journey”, my journey through the bad, the ugly and the good. It is about my journey out of darkness toward Christianity and becoming a true Child of God. Check it out at The book shows that God is great and truly forgives, we simply need to repent and try to do better.

Jesus, the only Hope of the World
