The more I read and study Scripture, the more firmly rooted my Christian beliefs become.  For many years, I would describe myself as anything but liberal.  However, after many years of daily consistent Bible study, I have come to the conclusion; I might just be a liberal Christian.

That may come as a shock to some of you, who know me.  But, I am absolutely convinced.

Why? Because, as I read Scripture, I realize more and more how liberal God truly is.

  • God offers grace liberally. – 2 Corinthians 9:8
  • God offers eternal life liberally, to whosoever believes. – John 3:16
  • God gives wisdom liberally, to all who seek him first. – James 1:5
  • God shows mercy liberally, to those that fear Him. – Psalms 103:17
  • God gives strength liberally, to those that wait on Him. – Isaiah 40:31
  • God blesses liberally, all who honor Him first. – Malachi 3:10
  • God gives joy liberally, to all who abide in His love. – John 15:11
  • God gives peace liberally, to those whose mind is steadfast on Him. – Isaiah 26:3
  • God gives life liberally, to all that trust in Jesus Christ. – John 10:10
  • God gives Himself liberally, to all who worship Him. – Ephesians 3:14-20

Looking at it this way, I believe I am a liberal Christian, serving a Liberal God.

Some of you are disappointed “Liberal” did not mean what you thought it would.  Others are thinking: “I might be a liberal Christian, too.”

What other ways have you found God to be liberal toward His people?

Christmas Morning

Tis the morning of Christmas, I sit alone in the house.
Not a creature is stirring, not even my spouse.

The tree is beautiful with lights all aglow,
Beneath rest the presents wrapped in paper and bow.

The stocking are all filled by the fire place so fair.
Awaiting the appearance of my wife and our pair.

Christmas at our house is really quiet mild.
This day not about us, but the Blessed Christ Child.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!!

May the Joy of Jesus be with you all!!!
