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 Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
    Sailing with the Peace of God…

    “But there is more! Now that God has accepted us because Christ sacrificed his life’s blood, we will also be kept safe from God’s anger. Even when we were God’s enemies, he made peace with us, because his Son died for us. Yet something even greater than friendship is ours. Now that we are at peace with God, we will be saved by his Son’s life. And in addition to everything else, we are happy because God sent our Lord Jesus Christ to make peace with us.” (Romans 5:9–11, CEV)

    I don’t have to tell you this. But I will. The most important day in my life occurred the day at the Silver Birch Mall Gary convinced me (he said it was the Holy Spirit because that’s what the Spirit does) God accepted me. And believe you me that was the hardest thing for me to do. I remember looking out the window at some poor soul who’d fallen on hard times and suddenly I saw my reflection in the window at the same time Gary said, “Crusty that could be you.” Instantly I turned and I’ll never forget what I said, “Gary, it is me. Can you say a prayer for me?” And we prayed right then and there. Then suddenly I felt a wave of peace come over me that has never left me and my relationship with Jesus has far surpassed that of friendship.

    I am sure you’ve had a similar experience but I think it is worthwhile at times especially when things may not be going as well as they could that we turn back the pages of time and re-experience the time when the Holy Spirit first ignited the flames of Jesus’ Peace in our hearts. I have discovered when negative circumstances try their best to disrupt my life and conflict attempts to muscle itself into my heart the flames of Jesus’ Peace will slowly or rapidly turn them into ashes.

    The ultimate human experience is sailing with the Peace with God and Jesus at the helm!

    Walk in the Light with Jesus and you’ll never get lost!
    PEACE be unto you!
    Crusty T. Christian, the First

    Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 LEB)
