Who Are You, Lord?

Lepicie, “Conversion of St. Paul” This post from a couple years ago is on my mind so I thought I’d repost. *** “Who are you, Lord?”  This was Paul’s question after Jesus struck him blind and stopped him in his tracks (Acts 9:1-5).  Paul was on his way to Damascus where he planned to continue…

Soul-Jars of Christ–Cameron Fult

I’d like to thank Cameron Fultz for sharing this post.  Cameron is a friend of mine and author of Spiritual Knowledge and Jesus Pictures *** Yes, “soul-jar” is a silly pun on “soldier”. But this is the kind of soldier we are; not one of force, but vessels of Christ crucified, the Treasure inside. The power of God…

Head Covering

While wandering the internet I stumbled across a blog advocating that women cover their heads.   Naturally, 1 Corinthians 11:5-6 was the author’s text— But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since that is one and the same as having her head shaved. So if a woman’s head is not…

Soul Vs. Spirit

“But the soulish person does not welcome what comes from God’s Spirit, because it is foolishness to him; he is not able to understand it since it is evaluated spiritually. The spiritual person, however, can evaluate everything, yet he himself cannot be evaluated by anyone” (1 Cor. 2:14-15). These verses contrast two types of people:…

Near You

“But what does it say? The word is near you, in your mouth and in your     heart, that is, the word of faith which we preach” (Rom. 10:8). The other day I was feeling out of gas. I don’t remember what all was going on that day. Whatever it was, I felt I…

Seeing the Father–Cameron Fultz

  The following is by my friend, Cameron Fultz.  Carmeron has done guest-posts on The Voice of One before.  His books are available at Amazon. *** As of late certain passages of the Bible about seeing the Father have stood out to me. John 1:18 says, “No one has ever seen God; the only God,…

Love not Law

“Christ has liberated us to be free.  Stand firm then and don’t submit again to a yoke of slavery” (Gal. 5:1) Most Christians know that Christ has freed them somehow.  What does freedom in Christ mean?  In one sense, freedom is defined by what we are freed from.  Galatians 5 helps us see the borders of…

The Tabernacle of Christ (Part 1)

(The following is excerpted from my booklet, “The Consummation of All Things in Christ: Ephesians Chapters 1-4“) *** “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and…

Limping Along

Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus, because the Spirit’s law of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death. What the law could not do since it was limited by the flesh, God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending His Son…

Transplant

At church on Sunday, we discussed Colossians chapter three. The Lord confronted me through the first few verses: “So if you have been raised with the Messiah, seek what is above, where the Messiah is, seated at the right hand of God.  Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth. For…
