Talon’s Point of the Day -Aug 28th, 2016 Scorched Earth

Just a reminder to all that think Jesus was all just about making sure you can have the warm fuzzies in life; the very Christ Jesus who willfully gave all of himself to set us free from sin and it’s eternal hellish consequence is the same Jesus who has a scorched earth policy.

The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

Don’t get caught in the firestorm.

Talon’s Point of the Day -Aug 4th, 2016 Your Delilah

Everyone, male or female, rich or poor, young or old, of every color and creed faces a Delilah in their life. It’s often not a person, and if confronted and overcome, will be displaced by a new Delilah. In our youth it may well be a person. As we age it could be anything. For a period of time for me it was twitter and other social media. Anyone, or anything that draws us from our God ordained purpose has become our Delilah. Ask yourself, “Who, or what is my Delilah?” Better yet, ask God.

Talon’s Point – Feb.19th, 2016 Death Clothes

As Christians we have died with Christ (Romans 6:8) and have been buried with him(Romans 6:4). Returning to the sin he has freed us from is like shedding our pure white garments (Ephesians 5:7), digging up a dead man, our old man (Romans 6:6), stripping him of his rot and stench soaked clothes, and putting them on ourselves.

Leave your death clothes where they belong, on that old man.

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. Romans 6:8

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. Romans 6:4

..and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:7

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. Roman 6:6

Talon’s Point – Sept 10th, 2015 Your Life Doesn’t Matter

Edgy tag line aside I have probably said this before but I sense for one of my fellow bloggers or readers that it needs to be said again.

Life ultimately is not about having a happy experience. It’s not about being able to look back with pride in what we accomplished. As much as they are wonderful, important, and gifts from God, it’s not even about the friendships we developed or family we did our best to raise. Life is singularly about what we did to bring glory to our maker. Often that glory shines brightest only while we are suffering injustice just as our Savior did, and from those we love most. Confess then forget that you have failed him. We all have. That’s what makes His love and faithfulness to us so perfect and amazing.

Remember this if you have lost everything and are broken, with nothing remaining but your shaken faith; You have riches beyond imagination and your life is NOT a failure, for against all the fury the enemy has unleashed against you, you have managed to keep hold of the only thing that matters, your trust in your eternal beloved.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Aug 28th 2015 Get Cross

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.” Jesus, Matthew 5:11 NIV

There are now entire denominations of self proclaimed “Christians” who never have to worry about being persecuted because they have voted to conform to this world’s views on sin. Blessed are you ONLY if you daily take up your cross and follow after Jesus.

Talon’s Point of the Day – July 25th, 2015 Pleasure And Pain

We are taught by this world from our early youth through the end of our days to avoid pain and seek pleasure.

Christ came and avoiding pleasure he reached out to pain, both of those around him, and ultimately his own.

Dare I do less?

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 – July 19th, 2015 Disrespect For God

Who is more disrespectful of God? The one who denies God’s very existence? Or the one who claims allegiance to the Creator but doesn’t take the things of His heart serious?

Talon’s Point of the Day – July 1st, 2015 I’m off. How About You?

If you find yourself going straight to your computer in the morning instead of to your bible perhaps its time to evaluate your priorities and reset your habits. I too can find myself guilty of this at times, like today. So I’m off to search God’s word for the truth I need this day. How about you?

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.
