Thought For The Day - 01/13/22 "Worship God"!

Today is the 4th item on Mark's post-it-note.

Mark recites Pink Floyd as an example about NOT wasting a minute of this life and Mark relates that to how we worship God.

You have to be certain the kind of worship that you give God should never be used in your affections or concerns or wonderment or fear for anyone or anything else.

It also means that worship includes serving others in God's name.

Worship also means coming together to worship in a group.

Mark gives a great summary of how different Hebrew and Greek words reflect these truths.

Thought For The Day - 01/12/22 "Enjoy Life"!

The third deliberate action that Mark has on his desk for decades.

Today it's enjoy.

Mark says that scripture says that God wants us to enjoy this life.

An example is Paul's council to the young Timothy.

Basically, he tells Timothy to fight the good fight.

But he also tells him how God wants us to enjoy what He gives us! It's by being generous to others in everything we do, speak, and think.

01/11/2022

Thought For The Day - 01/11/22 "Work"!

The second item on Mark's post-it-note list is work.

What might surprise you is that God has created the world with the intention that we will always work it.

Paul talks about this in Collossians chapter 3, a letter that was meant to reach a lot of people.

Paul tells everyone to work heartily. Another way to say it is work out of your soul, and that you are working for the Lord.

We aren't simply to exist. God has prepared each of us for good works, particular to each person.

Watch to see what this week's list is for Mark, but today it's love.

01/07/2022

Thought For The Day - 01/07/22 "Fasting!"

Mark has a spontaneous meeting with his Pastor Jarrett and low and finds out that the Sunday sermon will be about fasting.

Their conversation turns to the story about the boy in Matthew 17, who the apostles are unable to heal.

Jesus responds that this demon can only be removed by prayers and fasting.

Fasting disconnects you from the world, praying brings you closer to God.

Fasting we are getting more of God.

Pastor Jarrett talks about first time to the Lord is where disconnects from the world.

Find your own.

01/06/2022

Thought For The Day - 01/06/22 "Keeping Kosher?"

While not sponsored by Milton's Gluten Free Crispy Sea Salt Crackers, he does use it to segue into the dietary laws in Jewish culture.

These delicious crackers are 'kosher' and 14 of them are just a bit more than 130 calories.

So, as Christians, and Gentiles, and only grafted on to the Jewish line, should we be keeping these dietary laws?

Everybody is loved by God, there was a special role that Israel played to exhibit God's love story to humanity.

The dietary laws set Israel apart.

God puts his mark on his people, whether its dietary laws for Israel or your ability to show love to all.

Be different! For the Kingdom's sake.

01/05/2022

Thought For The Day - 01/05/22 "Celebration!!!"

Mark records his devotional from the little food cart that his grandchildren played with this Christmas.

They had their own little celebration of great things to eat as they pretended to have popsicles and hotdogs.

How does that connect to us adults?

God meant for us to have joy. There is plenty of time for despair in this world, so one of the ways we celebrate, experience joy, is with food.

Jesus explained that celebrating with feasts was something worthwhile and defended his disciples fasting behaviour!

Take advantage of those senses God gave you, to smell and taste the bounty God provides in the form of food.

01/04/2022

Thought For The Day - 01/04/22 "Feeding THOUSANDS!"

Mark continues the food theme for today.

In the gospel of Mark, chapter 6, Jesus fed five thousand people.

In this scripture Jesus links what He did with the feeding the thousands to the time of the exodus when Moses had the Israelites in the wilderness.

The key is that in the desolation, in our desolation, God feeds and cares for his 'sheep' as our good shepherd.

01/03/2022

Thought For The Day - 01/03/22 "Pomegranates and Black-Eyed Peas!"

Mark wishes you a very blessed, happy New Year by starting out with the tradition in his family about the tradition of black eyed peas on the first day of the new year.

It reminded Mark of pomegranates, a symbol used in the Old Testament days for prosperity and great beauty.

It's a rich illustration of how pomegranates remind us that being in the service of God prospers beauty and richness.

Not in dollars and in bigger checking balance, but in the joy of service to the King.

Mashup 88 Dec 27 - Dec 31 The Fruit of the Spirit

That strange week between celebrating Christmas and hoping in the coming of the New Year had caused Mark to be reflective.

With a second bout of COVID, like all of us, our plans can change in a moment.

What's the solution to wondering about next year, the pandemic, and who we are in Christ.

Taking words from Paul, Mark looks at how love, as THE fruit of the spirit prospers kindness, joy, patience, and love.

And it matters that you know that God is always in control.

12/31/2021

Thought For The Day - 12/31/21 "Kindness"

Today Mark talks about kindness.

It's more than just being benevolent towards people.

If you look at the word in Greek, it is a very intentional caring and effort towards others. It's part of what you do each day.

12/29/2021

Thought For The Day - 12/29/21 "Joy!"

Today it's Galatians 5:22, like yesterday, of fruit of the spirit.

How do you get joy when you have COVID?

Especially if your little grand girls have it too!!!

You get to see these two little twin grand girls of Mark's who also have COVID.

Because those wee ones and Mark are all in the COVID space together he gets special privilege with them.

He is getting to take them on a walk and spend time thinking about how joyous it is to be with them... and with people.

But oh how much more joyous it is to spend time in the presence of God.

God is with you 24/7.

Nothing keeps him away from you.

Think about that.

12/28/2021

Thought For The Day - 12/28/21 "How's It Growing?"

Mark is still in a reflective mood as we spend the days between celebrating our Savior's birth and the New Year.

He hones in on Paul's admonition concerning the fruits of the spirit.

There is a contrast between the works of the flesh and THE fruit of the spirit.

There are great instructions on how to prosper love.

Do you want to join Mark in the resolution to love like Jesus loves us?

This is a great video.

Mashup #87 Dec 20 - Dec 27 "Surprise ... It's life!"

Guess who has COVID?

Yes, its Mark.

Again.

And it's made him reflective.

It's a real testimony that you might want things to go one way but they don't and what you do when that happens.

Because you put your money where your mouth is.

God IS in control.

Always. .

Mashup #87 Dec 20 - Dec 24 "Carols Celebrating Our King"

Excerpts from a week of carols you know and don't know, Mark highlights the truth in each of them.

The bottom line?

The good news is that Jesus came for us all. He came to make us white as snow. Because we can't be that on our own. And he is the peacemaker, the savior, the king, and our God.

And Christmas is really the gift for all year.

Thought For The Day - 12/24/21 "O Holy Night"

It's Christmas Eve!

Of course it's about the baby Jesus.

It's Mark's favorite Christian hymn both for the music and the lyrics.

This hymn is about finding joy in this life because Jesus was born.

Have a wonderful Christmas because you are redeemed!!! God's love song to you is how much He loves us each.

Listen here for one version of "O Holy Night": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTFG_nvreoI

General information

Biblical literacy is our passion—not just learning more about God, but learning to know Him better! We believe the Scriptures are given by God to show us how to have a relationship with Him and man. Our desire is to study the Bible in practical ways that both deepen our relationship with Him and inspire us to make Christ known to others! We strive to achieve balance in our class ministry by also focusing on the other key areas of the Christian life: prayer, fellowship, and outreach. We are committed to demonstrating love, devotion, and caring for each other. With an active prayer coordinator, Connection Groups, and regular social events, we strive to minister to the entire person. Come be a part of our Biblical Literacy class and deepen your walk with God! Our Biblical Literacy class began in 2003 with a vision to complete an overview of the entire Bible. Three short, exciting years later we saw the fulfillment of our dream. Since then, we have also completed a two-year study on “Church History Literacy," designed to explore the foundation of the Church and how it relates to us and the Church as we know it today. In early 2010, we completed an almost two and a half year study on “Paul, His Life and Teachings” and "Paul's Theology." With that road behind us, we have taken sight in 2010 on going back through the Bible, cover to cover, much like we did with the original Biblical Literacy series. This time, however, we intend to take a slightly different tack. Before, we were intent on finding the "core material" that would give even a novice familiarity with the Bible. This time, the effort is targeted a bit deeper. Our goal is to present and study together material that would be appropriate for study of a survey-type class on a seminary level. We are thrilled to be a part of the Maturity and Ministry efforts of Champion Forest Baptist Church, a dynamic church located in Houston, Texas. Our class meets from 11:00 am - 12:05 pm each Sunday in the Family Life Center. The Biblical Literacy class is taught by our own Mark Lanier. Mark is a practicing attorney who also holds a B.A. in Biblical Languages from David Lipscomb University. He is both a committed student of Scripture and an excellent communicator of its truths. Mark is assisted by our CFBC Staff Liaison, Pastor Louis Miori.
