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.

    Glory Seed Devotional’s 2018 Experiencing Jesus, the Prelude to Life
    Standing on the promises of Jesus…

    “Jesus called his disciples and said, “I have compassion on the crowd, because they’ve already stayed with me three days and have nothing to eat. I don’t want to send them away hungry, otherwise they might collapse on the way.” (Matthew 15:32)


    What a promise. If we follow Jesus he is unwilling to send us into the world without first providing us with the “stuff” we’ll need.

    Have you ever noticed the things we do in the present are for tomorrow?

    Take eating for instance. We eat in the present, taste in the present, enjoy the food in the present, and reap the benefits (and / or the curse) of eating in the unfolding hours until we eat again.

    Take going to work for instance. We labor in the present for our paycheck the following week.

    Jesus knew the demands of being a follower would be very taxing, in fact so taxing that without providing for us first we’d be doomed to failure. Jesus makes provision for each of us to be blessed by the timelessness of the Holy Spirit, which gives and sustains life. One of the unique personalities of the Holy Spirit is its ability to react to multiple situations at a time then bring the past, present, and future into focus on a moment by moment basis thus enabling us to move forward into the future.


    “The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit. You will not despise
    a broken and humbled heart, God.” (Psalm 51:17)
    Grace and PEACE,
