Ramadan, Day 26—"Night of Power"

«.لَو كانَتْ مَملَكتِي تَنتَمِي إلَى هَذا العالَمِ، لَكانَ أتباعِي يُحارِبُونَ لِيَمنَعُوا تَسلِيْمِي إلَى اليَهُودِ. لَكِنَّ مَملَكَتِي لَيْسَتْ مِنْ هُنا »

Unthinkable Humility 

On the night of his last Passover meal Jesus performed one of the strangest and most uncommon acts for a figure of such epic prominence and power as the Messiah: He washed his disciples' feet. Yet it was entirely consistent with his M.O. which makes it believable. He lived it out thoroughly. It was yet one more demonstration that he came "not to be served but to serve...and to GIVE his life [not take]...as a ransom for many." That is mind-blowing to me.

June 19, Day 25

« مَملَكَتِي لا تَنتَمِي إلَى هَذا العالَمِ.»  "My kingdom is not of this world."  It would seem that only an alien like Thor or Kal El "Superman" would say something like this. But it wasn't them. Besides, they are fictional. But the man who said this was real and had very strange ideas about himself. "What kind of a outrageous claim is that?" his audience wondered in disbelief. But there's more: «.لَو كانَتْ مَملَكتِي تَنتَمِي إلَى هَذا العالَمِ، لَكانَ أتباعِي يُحارِبُونَ لِيَمنَعُ »

Ramadan Mubarek. This month of fasting is an especially good time to think about the reasons for true and genuine faith. True faith is not something you're just born into. It's something you have to choose. That's my belief. When I discovered the Bible I found all the things for which my soul was yearning and the strong reasons to redirect my faith. This is my story.  

In the pages of the Bible I found beauty, goodness, truth, and the supernatural. I realized that this book was the source of all the beauty I had been longing for. But the Bible is not only beautiful it is good, the source of the highest virtues of humanity. And the Bible is true, packed full of historical and geographical facts. Moreover, the Bible is supernatural.  In it the holy men of God gave prophecies well in advance and performed miracles in public, with confident language that is too broad in scope, far-reaching, and personal for anyone not to feel directly addressed by its message. Have you read the Bible, or even the New Testament?

Ramadan, Day 13: Contemplating the Oneness of God

Fasting is a time of contemplation. A time to humble yourself before the One God.

by Steve Schlichter


Fasting is a time of contemplation. A time to humble yourself before God. A time to search yourself and confess attitudes and actions that are contrary to the nature of God. Those we commit that we should not and those we omit that we should do. The more we understand God's nature, the more humbling and meaningful our expressions of love and worship can be. God is one. He is unique and indivisible, as these verses bare witness:

       


Moses: "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!" (Deuteronomy 6:4)

Jesus: "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD.'" (Mark 12:29)

Paul: "Now a mediator is not for one party only; whereas God is only one." (Galatians 3:20)

James: "You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder." (James 2:19)
