Nakedness Indeed

Nakedness Indeed

00:00 The deeper reason we fear our own glory is that once we let others see it, they will have seen the truest us, and that is nakedness indeed. We can repent of our sin. We can work on our “issues.” But there is nothing to be “done” about our glory. It’s so naked. It’s just there—the truest us. It is an awkward thing to shimmer when everyone else around you is not, to walk in your glory with an unveiled face when everyone else is veiling his. For a woman to be truly feminine and beautiful is to invite suspicion, jealousy, misunderstanding. A friend confided in me, “When you walk into a room, every woman looks at you to see—are you prettier than they are? Are you a threat?” And that is why living from your glory is...

Joshua 16:1-18:28 ~ Luke 19:1-27 ~ Psalm 87:1-7 ~ Proverbs 13:11Today is the 18th of April. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It’s good to be here with you as we close down another week. I was trying to see if I could get through without drawing any attention to it, but it is allergy season and I’ve somehow caught myself a bronchial something-or-other cold. So I was like noticing it in my earphones yesterday, but now I can’t hide it. The one benefit is it gives me bass, bass that I don’t normally have and I’m told it’s all about the bass. I’m fine. I feel fine and I’ll read fine. I just want to point out what is going on. Every once in a while, every other year or once a year, I don’t remember...

Let Us Remember Who We Truly Are

Let Us Remember Who We Truly Are

00:00 Let us then remember who we truly are. Let us go further up and further in to all the riches and the joy and the intimacy and the healing that God has for us! Do you remember who you are? Whose you are? First, you are the daughter of the King. You are your Father’s delight. You are the apple of his eye and the one on whom his affections rest. Second, you are the bride of Christ. You are engaged to the High Prince. You are the beloved of Jesus. There is a royal wedding coming, unparalleled in the history of men and angels, and all the eyes of creation will be riveted and rejoicing. Third, you are the ally-friend of Jesus, sent to this earth to bring about the invasion of his kingdom. You have a role in a mighty story filled with beauty and danger. When...

Joshua 16-18 The Territory Assigned to Ephraim and West Manasseh 16 The southern boundary of the land assigned to the descendants of Joseph started from the Jordan near Jericho, at a point east of the springs of Jericho, and went into the desert. It went from Jericho up into the hill country as far as Bethel. 2 From Bethel it went to Luz, passing on to Ataroth Addar, where the Archites lived. 3 It then went west to the area of the Japhletites, as far as the area of Lower Beth Horon.

Hope you’re doing well and enjoying the changing of the seasons, although here in the south, in the rolling hills of Tennessee the seasons have changed. It’s a lovely time of year here. This week we’ve been reading from the New Life Version and we’ll continue forward in that. Prayer: Jesus, as we come to this story of the blind man one last time this year, we see your question. What do you want me to do for you? We see his answer. I want to see. That is our prayer once again. We want to see. We invite your Holy Spirit to illuminate your Word in our lives in such...

Joshua 15 15 The share of land for the family group of the people of Judah by their families was south to the land of Edom. It went to the Desert of Zin at the far south. 2 The south side of their land was from the south end of the Salt Sea. 3 It went south of the hill of Akrabbim and on to Zin.
