  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

March 11, 2013 - Lunch-Bag Faith

By Scott Harrup

I recently heard Pastor Dary Northrop of Timberline Church (Assemblies of God) in Fort Collins, Colo., share from John 6 the narrative of Jesus feeding the 5,000. Of course, “the 5,000” only accounted for the men. Very likely, the hungry crowd was well north of 10,000 people, with women and children.

I’ve been thinking about what Pastor Northrop had to say regarding the boy whose lunch Jesus multiplied in order to feed the multitude.

“Did the boy eat from his lunch that day?” Pastor Northrop asked. “Or, did he eat from the lunch God made from his lunch that day? He may have eaten more than he actually brought.”

For me, this feeding miracle offers one of the most compelling calls to personal faith in all of the Bible. I want the kind of faith to take root in my life that will loosen my grip on the tiny reserves of “stuff” God has given me. Like that boy, I want to discover anew that when I give anything back to God, He can multiply it infinitely.

I just need that “lunch-bag faith,” day to day, to give it all up and freefall into God’s grace.

How about you?
