Talon’s Point of the Day – Oct 20th, 2016 Sign of Love

If longing to be with someone until it hurts in our heart is a sign we love them then what does it say about us if we call ourselves Christians but do not long to be with our Savior?

Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 4th, 2016 Are You ن ?

We are living in a time of heroes of the Cross but we’re so enslaved to our American comfort that we live our days unaware. Meanwhile, brothers and sisters we’ve never met are losing everything, driven by persecution to flee for their lives with nothing but the literal clothes on their backs to live in tents, or worse. Those who do not make it out, or stay in defiance of Islamists to be the light of Christ in a darkening world, are being martyred for the Savior they love more than life itself.

What are you and I doing, not only to shine God’s light in our own darkening world, but to bring some relief to our brothers and sisters of faith who have lost all for the Cross of Christ?

Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan. 30, 2016 Get Sick Of Yourself

Many who attempt, suicide, and sometimes “succeed”, do so for things such as no longer being able to deal with physical pain, no doubt coupled with emotional pain. The rest of course do so because they no longer wish to face said emotional pain. In all cases it is of course tragic. Yet I cannot help but think on one level they are half way to a truth they are unwilling to continue through the process to completion.

When we get so sick of our lives as we have molded them through our own choices, to the point we give up on our lives, we are at a potentially eternal crossroad where one path is nothing short of glorious. Yes we can give up. We can use our last decision in life to act consistent with our past. Decisions that have us here at this crossroad in the first place, unwilling to turn to the God we’ve all heard about at some level. Or, even if we know little about this Creator, and even doubt he exists, or doubt the claim he loves us, we can choose to strike a new path. We can truly get so sick of ourselves that instead of ending our mortal existence, we cry out to God in surrender, leaving the remainder of our days in his hands, to mold us as he wills. To help us finally know that we were created for a wonderful purpose,

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – Psalm 139:14

and to turn the ashes of our self destruction into beauty.

“…and provide for those who grieve in Zion —
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.

They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”

Get sick of yourself. It can lead to beauty beyond imagination.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan 20th, 2016 Shame On Me….Please!

Our modern society celebrates the shameless and their shamelessness but I’m deeply grateful for shame. It drives me back to the feet of my Savior, where all that is holy, all that is pure is found. Where I am washed clean from my wretched filth, and ultimately from the shame that makes me aware of it. Yes, shame on me….please!

Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan 9th, 2016, “In Christ Alone Is Your Debt Paid For You”

To paraphrase Ravi Zacharias:

In Buddhism there is no grace. You pay
In Hinduism there is no grace. You pay
In Islam there is no grace. You pay

 

Only in Christ has perfection in human form paid for you, and poured grace out for you in abundance beyond your need. It’s up to you to receive.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Dec. 16th, 2015

While the work of salvation is complete in Christ, the crown of life is pressure fit. You are re-made to fit it. It is not made to fit you. Don’t quit the process before you’re fit to wear it.

“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” – James 1:12

“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” – Our Savior, John 14:21

Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” – Our Savior to John the Revelator, Revelation 2:10

Talon’s Point of the Day – July 20th, 2015 The Intimate Touch Of God

Do you wonder how close a relationship God wants us to have with him? May I suggest God wants a relationship with us so intimate that we each want to know the touch of His hand more than we want the touch of any person on earth?

Talon’s Point of the Day – June 30th, 2015 God’s There, Just Keep Looking

While I often question details of my faith I don’t question God’s faithfulness (tempted as I may be in my weaknesses). There is certainly much I don’t know, but I know this one thing; With every storm I’ve seen His protective hand though at times it wasn’t until the rain passed and I could look back with dry eyes.

Keep praying and keep looking for God in every situation and eventually you’ll realize He was there all along.
