- It’s possible to be driving in the wrong direction, realize it, but keep driving on out of pride. Mere intellectual assent doesn’t necessarily mean that a U turn results. Even the demons know Jesus is the son of God but that doesn’t mean they obey him.
- What a Loss for Christians who use Logos. There are many ways to serve our Lord better or the best way, Morris chose the best way by equipping all Christians on how to study Gods word faster, deeper and more thorough. Morris helped empower us to do our jobs there by multiplying his gifts and impact to the glory of God. Blessings to his family.
- I'm appreciative of the benefit Morris brought to me and many others. May he rest in peace until the resurrection. "28 Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice 29 and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation" John 5:28–29 (NKJV)
- Very sad for our loss. Very much appreciate his ministry and talents. Will be greatly missed.
- Is this not the 'reality of Man coming into the spiritual side of Christ', It is not to 'still' be a manmade ceremony, but to be a spiritual eternal regeneration unto God. Christ in Us, Us in Christ is the melding into Christ alone. Not still man.
- Wow. What a wonderfully spiritual perspective on an ever-present problem in my life. Thank you.
- This is an excellent article. When leading a communion devotional, I've often stated that this "table" is a table of grace. It's like coming to the cross. There aren't exclusive people that can come to the cross, only sinners who need a Savior. The Lord's table is the same way. We come, not as worthy people, but unworthy. He makes us worth; He forgives our sin; He cleanses us; He sets us on our feet. We must remember this every time we come to the table. Thanks for this great article.
- I think this applies to new believers and seasoned Jesus followers. When you start your walk with God, prayer can seem intimidating and when you are 10 years in, it can seem burdensome. The verse Luke 11:2 that you referenced, Jesus told the disciples to address God as father when they pray to him. I believe this tells us as believers, when we pray, we are speaking to our father, the one who cares and loves his children. Its an intimate thing and always accessible to us. I loved this post and thought you worded things so well, I look forward to reading more!
- Oh, it definitely does. I've been reading Karl Barth and T F Torrance, and my prayers are definitely different from the shopping lists I used to offer in my younger days as a follower of Christ.
- Not trying to be negative in the slightest here but I have a question. Aren't you basically straining out a gnat to swallow a camel? All the nice deep theological word usages kind of leaves out 1 thing about the nature of Yehovah. God sees everything long before we humans do. If he sees a blessing or in the case of Abraham and Isaac a salvation via a ram, the seeing leads to the providing. In a sense the word has two meanings but both meanings lead to the same conclusion. The Angel of the Lord did not say to Abraham "Stop, I've seen a way" then go back to heaven. No. He said Stop don't kill the both, I have provided a sacrifice and with that the ram got stuck in the bush and Abraham went and grabbed the ram and sacrificed it, instead of his son. Similarly Yeshua didn't say I have come to see and then he slowly rises back into heaven. No, Yeshua came as the ram to hang on the cross for the sins of the world. It says that Jesus Looked out onto the People of Israel and saw the sins of the people and he provided the means to escaped the Father's wrath. The angel of the Lord saw the tears of Hagar out in the wilderness and he provided the place of water where she and Ishmael could get the sustenance of water they both needed so badly. I think to lop off the meaning of provides solely for the meaning of sees, lops off the goodness and holiness of God the Father.
- A note to Rob Henderson. Um, Jehovah is not an Americanism. Greek and Latin have no "Y" so they used the J which in Greek and Latin gives a sound similar to "Y" The use of the Greek/Latin J was around about 1900 years before America was even settled. If you listen to some Hebrew scholars, for instance, Nehemia Gordo, ( who has a doctorate in Ancient Hebrew from the Hebrew University in Israel,) and many others that are honest the real name for God is יְהֹוָה Yehôvâh, yeh-ho-vaw
- Thanks for the clarification, I guess I followed the JB and NJB and Nrsvce traditions. I saw a Rob Bell video where he likened yeh ho vaw to a breath spoken.
