Is the Dove in a Box?

AfterHope I sent off the last blog on Tuesday, I actually wondered if I’d ever write another blog.  I didn’t feel it was strong as it should be.  I put it before God and he kindly sent me several people who emailed me and said that Tuesday’s blog hit home for them.  Wow—I was encouraged!

A few hours after writing that blog, I bumped into an article that hit home for me.

If you remember, I mentioned the fact that Jesus threw the moneychangers out of the temple—and there was spiritual transformation that day!  Now I realize that not all churches are money hungry businesses.  However, this article made me think.

Well, pastor and author Perry Stone mentioned in the article that when Jesus threw the  moneychangers out of the temple, the crates of doves naturally tipped over and doves were released—OUT OF THE BOX!  I had to mention that here.  Maybe the HolyDove Released Spirit wants to be released out of the boxes we’ve put Him into in our attempts to make church happen.  What would happen if all the church money suddenly hit the floor and at the same time The Dove was released to fly at will?

Now there’s something to think about . . .

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.

  1. David mentioned the Imperials and I think we ought to at least give a link to listen to “Lord of the Harvest” by the Imperials on You Tube. All of our young people will get a kick out of watching the hairstyles and clothing styles on this video. Close your eyes and listen! Haha! Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WN7ezuRYpA
