Glory Seed Guidelines

Notice – The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

These daily devotionals are brought to you by Gary Piper, a writer with our Sister Site, Natural Spirit Ministries. TheologyWeb encourages you to visit and support their site.... they have many informative articles which can be discussed right here. If you enjoy Gary Piper's devotionals, please send him an encouraging note or post. We are very appreciative of our partnership with Natural Spirit Ministries and look forward to many more co-ventures.

    A Planting of Faith Seeds for the Glory of the LORD
    Jesus… “We will get through this…”

    “Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.” (Hebrews 2:17–18, NLT)

    When I think about today’s scripture was/is Jesus like us in every respect did he experience a heart attack like I did? Did he experience cancer like so many people do? Did he experience Multiple Sclerosis like my friend Adam does? Did he experience Myasthenia Gravis like my friend Don does? Did Jesus really experience life just like we do? I am not sure how important the answer is to you but for me hanging precariously on it is how real Jesus is to me.

    While I am not an expert biblical scholar educated in the finest seminars I am an expert educated in the most demanding school we’ll ever attend LU short for Life University. And while my answer to whether or not Jesus truly experienced life as I do is a matter of faith it is based not only on my faith but on the faithfulness of the Holy Spirit’s continuing testimony not only of the humanness of Jesus but also his ultimate divinity as well.

    When I experienced my heart attack last November because of the depth of his intimacy with me, because of the presence of the Holy Spirit our hearts were beating as one enabling Jesus to experience everything I experienced. You may think the heart attack was my test but it was only a prelude to the real test (the one we all go through), whether or not I would remain faithful to God or not?

    When LU put the question to me “Will you remain faithful to God through all this?” My answer was based on Peter’s answer when asked by Jesus if the disciples would remain faithful to him. “…Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, “Are you also going to leave?” Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. We believe, and we know you are the Holy One of God.”” (John 6:66–69, NLT) And now as I find myself entering another LU classroom because Jesus and the Holy Spirit are deep into my life to stay that is what my answer will be.

    My friend whatever “classroom” LU is dragging you though you not alone Jesus is experiencing everything you are and because he passed his test the night of his arrest you will to.

    Believe it! Experience it!
    Grace and PEACE!
    Gary

    “Then the disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in, and he saw and believed—for until then they still hadn’t understood the Scriptures that said Jesus must rise from the dead. Then they went home.” (John 20:8–10, NLT)
