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.

Delighting in our Duty

Below is an article I wrote this month for our church's newsletter: "The CrossWay Current". More accurately, I wrote the article for me! You see, one of the common vocational hazards of being a pastor, is, we can lose our joy if we are not careful. Of course, this...

Thank You God!

My heart's intent with this post is to encourage you. Yes, we have finally shed the skin of 2020, and have entered a new year, but as we all know, this past year has taken an emotional toll on many. And, its' effects linger still. I find that that when I get a bit...

Peace with God through our Prince of Peace.

As I write this, the tumultuous/chaotic/crazy (what adjective does one use?!) year of 2020 is coming to an end. Yet, while I don't consider myself a pessimist, as we all know, the end of a calendar year doesn't necessarily mean everything will be automatically...

An Invitation to Rest

Greetings! Most of you, I am guessing, will be reading this after our general election on November 3rd. I am writing this on election eve on the 2nd. Perhaps the day after on the 4th, we will know who our President elect will be. Will Trump be re-elected, or, will...

You are here – Now What?

Yes, you are here upon this earth. Now What? That is, what is the purpose of your life? People can spend their entire lives looking for the answer to that question. So, how would you answer it? Why are you here? I would suggest ALL of us are created to know and to...

School of Revival, or, Come Drink With Me.

Hello Friends! It's been awhile since I've posted. My apologies. With the combination of Covid-19 and my co-Pastor retiring, it's taken me a while to find my new rhythm(s). I appreciate your prayers and your patience. So, how have you been? I'm not sure any of us, no...

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...
