Dudley's Weekly Word

The Rejected Stone

Posted November 29, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

Jesus is offensive to those who have refused to respond to the previous revelations of God given through creation, conscience, and scripture. It is truly remarkable that mankind could be so blind as not to see the beauty of God in all that is around us. Yet, we are reminded daily that Jesus is rejectable. Believers should be overwhelmed with the mercy shown to us in opening our eyes to see his matchless mercy.... Keep Reading

It Is Time To Give Thanks

Posted November 22, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |1 Comments

We have just endured a grueling election, and feelings are still strong. Some are angry. Some are elated. Some are relieved. A huge transition is under way, and no really knows what the immediate future holds politically. There is still a lot of angst in the air. What a great time to stop and give thanks. Our souls need a refreshing and our hearts long to be whole. But more than these, God deserves to be worshipped as the source of all blessings. It is time to give thanks.... Keep Reading

Born to Worship

Posted November 8, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

We were made to worship! It is the reason for our existence. It is the only way we find our purpose, and it is the epitome of our delight. Adam and Eve worshipped God at all times. They adored him and obeyed him as they enjoyed his fellowship. It was in an act of worship that Cain became angry and killed his brother. When humans have gone astray, they have done so by worshipping something other than the true God.... Keep Reading

Coming Grace

Posted November 1, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

The nature of this magnificent salvation that former prophets inquired about and angels long to see is one of ever approaching grace. It is the continual progressive revelation of Christ and his rule now and forever. The prophet Daniel had dreams about the various kingdoms in history, culminating with the establishment of God's kingdom through his people on earth. The stone rolling down the mountain and crushing the image of human governments is identified as the same stone that the Jewish leaders rejected, but who became the cornerstone of God's final temple. Jeremiah had prophesied of a new day with a new covenant and a new people. Jesus confirmed that covenant with his own life and death.... Keep Reading

No Mere Angel

Posted October 25, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

Someone recently referred to the time of his death as being when he would get his harp and wings. It is a common euphemism but does not reflect the Bible's evaluation of us. We have never been angels. (Even our mothers can agree with that!) We shall never be angels. We are the unique image-bearers of God himself. The blood of God's Son has redeemed us, and that doesn't apply to angels.... Keep Reading

Taste of Good

Posted October 18, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

One taste of the kind of goodness found in God is enough to motivate one to do whatever is necessary to get more. Those who find it a chore to drink of the pure spiritual milk must not have tasted the goodness or they have somehow forgotten how it taste.... Keep Reading

Freedom Is Tricky

Posted October 11, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

Many people are tired of their enslavement. It is true also that many are not. They have denied their condition and bristle at the suggestion that they are being deprived of a world of delight by holding on to their own bondage. But the ones who admit that they are tired have had enough of the fears that paralyze them, the addictions that drive them, the obsessions that haunt them, the perversions that shame them, and the cycles of oppression that keep them in confusion. They long to be free.... Keep Reading

Liberating Fear

Posted October 4, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

Christians have long debated what it means to fear God. Some view him as the strict judge who is keeping a detailed record of all our misdeeds, and so they are almost paralyzed in fear of doing something wrong. Others emphasize the bigness of God and say that we are to live with a sense of awe, but not to fear any repercussions for our actions. Peter gives us some clarity: God is the impartial judge who is our Father. Both of those designations are good news.... Keep Reading

Holiness is a Fun Word

Posted September 29, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |0 Comments

The way we sang the old hymn Holy, Holy, Holy in the little Baptist church of my upbringing didn't bring to mind visions of fun and adventure. It felt more like suppression and boredom. I'm absolutely sure it was my perspective rather than the merits of the music or the lyrics, but the idea of "holiness" did not appeal to me. Evidently it doesn't to many others as well. Too often it either is an unreachable standard we strive for without success, or it is a truncated concept of spiritual discipline resulting in self-righteous ritual.... Keep Reading

Restored Glory

Posted September 20, 2016 by: Dudley Hall |1 Comments

We are familiar with the statement of Paul that we have all sinned and have come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). What glory have we come short of? It is the glory that God designed humans to have in the beginning. It is the glory of trusting God as his partner and image bearer on earth. Mankind is most honored when they are living in total trust toward God. There is a security and significance in that state that exults in being alive. Every created person longs for such glory and honor.... Keep Reading
