Walk With Me

Blog posts by Bob Manuel

The metaphor of "walking" is often used in Scripture to describe our lives with God (Gen.5:24; 17:1; Gal.5:16; I John 1:7). "Our God gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isa.40:29-31). Perhaps Isaiah "descends" in intensity here, from soaring, running, and ending with walking, because he knows most of us don't soar or run every day, but we do and can "walk". My overall hope with each blog entry? To encourage you to walk with me as I walk with Him.

Psalms of Ascent and the Corona Virus

If you are a friend of Crossway Community, you know Pastor Funk and I have been preaching a series on the Psalms of Ascent (Psalms 120-134). In their original context, it is believed these Psalms were sung by God's people who would literally ascend in their pilgrimage...

Walking in Kindness

By now, if you're anything like me, you are perhaps a bit tired of hearing the words "Corona", Virus", "quarantine", "lockdown", "social distancing", etc.! Yet, I still feel we need to engage with one another over this new reality. So today's post will be a bit of a...

Christ and the Corona Virus (Toward a Christ-Like Response)

Hello Friends!  Thank you for visiting our website. As the title of this post suggests, I'd like to share with you my best guess on how Jesus would have us respond to the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus. "Toward" might be the key word in this piece because I do...

Walking in Patience

After posting a somewhat cathartic emotional piece yesterday, I think with this post, I will return to some reflections on the fruit of the Spirit, and, an invitation to "walk with me" as I seek to walk with Jesus. I've already reflected a bit on love, joy, and peace....

Come!

With this entry, I have in mind those who are either weary or wary of church. Even to you, maybe especially to you, Jesus says, "Come to me . . . "(Matt.11:28-20) Let me explain what I mean. I have always felt an affinity with those who feel like they just don't fit...

Coming to Jesus (Again and Again)

So, we made it through another holiday season! It's been a while since I contributed to this blog, but in my last post I talked a bit about experiencing the holidays as "holy-days". It seems to me, that shift of experience from a hectic mess of getting things done...

Holidays as Holy Days

Happy Holidays! This is a greeting/sentiment you will most likely hear during the next several weeks. Probably many of you reading this blog post are aware of the root meaning of our English word "holiday".  It comes from the Old...
