Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

I hope you're having a good Sunday. I want to take a moment and thank those of you who have responded to this study of Philippians 2. Here's one message I received last night that really means a lot.

Dear Chris:
As I review the scriptures I realize how much God has been with me through it all. I draw my strength from him and he has never let me down although I feel I have let him down; but I feel by just starting to read and review the Bible more I am getting reconnected again.

Thank you for what your ministry is doing for people like me that have lost their way a little bit, but want to be found.

That's such a wonderful message because Jesus is right there ready and waiting to welcome you back into fellowship. He's calling your name. He knows your hurts and hangups, strengths and weaknesses, and he knows all your faults and failures. With that knowledge, he still loves you. Incredible.

For our devotion today, with thanks, read the passage again, Philippians 2:1-11, and look at the "tenderness and compassion" of Jesus.

Has there been a point in your life when you have felt the tenderness and compassion of Christ? Has it been through other believers that this came to you?

How can you show the tenderness and compassion of Christ to someone else today? Pray and ask God for that opportunity.

Have a wonderful Sunday and as you worship, think about how Jesus has loved you tenderly and compassionately. God bless you.

Hi Chris,
Thanks for doing this for us. I used to journal quite a bit, but for whatever reason - busyness(?) entries have been few and far between. I was drawn to this 40 days because I was just encouraging my small group the other day with Hebrews 12:1,2...that with everything going on around us, we need to fix our eyes on Jesus. The next day as I was listening to your show in the car (coming off the Glen Beck rally), you mentioned the same verses. With "three steps for this" and the "seven things for that" and all the teaching we get from very well-meaning bible teachers, pastors, and radio hosts and their guests(hee hee), I need to get back to the basics...fixing my eyes on Jesus and getting alone with Him. Thanks for redirecting your listeners, and me, to the Only One who is all-sufficient for every need and longing.

Pressing in to Him,
