An Unexpected Christmas Greeting

The other day, as I was just waking up, I said, “Merry Christmas, Lord!”  It was a quirky thing to do.  I had never wished Jesus a merry Christmas.  The things one does when half-awake! Quite unexpectedly, the Lord replied!  He said, “I Am Christmas.”  True enough, right?  So a merry Christmas to all of…

What If a Vacuum Is the After-Effect of Dark Matter?–Cameron Fultz

What follows is a mind-bending post by my friend, Cameron Fultz; it blends scripture and quantum physics.  Even if you don’t get physics, you’ll still get Christ in this post 🙂 Cameron is author of  The Jesus Pictures and Spiritual Knowledge.  Cameron has a deep desire to know Christ by revelation and to be transformed by the seeing…

Dancing Without Feet

Many waters, without beginning or end. Without surface. It was only depth. It was only inside, not outside. It was not form, only flow. And it danced without feet, an irradiating urge, worshiping ecstatically in the silent music of self-knowledge. It was alone. But it was not alone. There was itself and Itself and ITSELF,…

Down the Drain

When I wrote the following poem, I was still VERY non-Christian.  One day I sat thinking about how arrogant it was for Christians to say they knew THE Truth. I remembered Jesus’s words: “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).  More arrogance.  But then (courtesy of the Holy Spirit, I’m sure) a thought…

CS Lewis’s Triple Threat

I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said…

Busy, Busy Bee

This week and weekend are shaping up to be very busy.  So I’m taking a little time off from blogging.  Please read past posts, look through the pages of booklets, or read from any of the fabulous blogs I follow.  And pray for me as I navigate the next few days.  In the midst of…

Back in a Flash

For the next few days I’ll be busy with family and won’t be blogging.  Please check out some of the blogs I follow.  There’s something for everyone: blogs that focus on art, apologetics, deeper life, and many more.  Also feel free to read past posts of mine or booklets posted on The Voice of One….

Thumbs Up!

As one called to preach and write about Christ, God often challenges my motives.  Why do I do what I do?  Am I still functioning out of His life and calling?  Have I slipped into letting ambition drive me?  Do my own efforts sustain what I do or am I energized by Christ’s energy? (Col….

Worth

Only one is of ultimate worth–God–because He gave with no thought for Himself.  He gave knowing full well how much He would suffer, and He gave anyway.  No one has ever done that.  That is why I love and worship Jesus alone.  And if His selfless love is manifest through me in even the smallest…

Off the Clock

I’m going to move this week. I hadn’t planned on taking a blogging break until I realized it’s been four days since my last post! Planned or not, apparently I’m taking a break. Typically, when I take a break, I encourage people to read past posts of mine or check out some of the pdf…

Break Time…

I’m going to clock out for a bit and take a blogging break.  For the last month, my family has been very busy selling our house and buying another.  It’s quite the transition.  We’ve lived in our current house for over a decade.  It’s the only house our kids have ever known.  But it’s time…

A (Not So) Happy Mother’s Day

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, a day when many of us celebrate our mothers and wives.  As tomorrow approaches, I am reminded of a number of people I know who have lost children–due to miscarriage, still birth, accidents or unexplained reasons.  Perhaps this is true of others who follow The Voice of One.  I cannot fathom such…
