This weeks’ message from Rev. Norman Shaw takes a look at “Holiness” as one of the “5 Characteristics of a Christian.” He points out that this series of messages are not a “how to” manual, rather an exploration of what characteristics should be found in us as Christians.
You will find this message to be a blessings, challenge, and an encouragement to you as you “Journey with Jesus.”
I invite you to like this post, leave a comment or prayer request (I would love the opportunity to pray with you). Also, I invite you to like the video on YouTube and to subscribe to the Keswick Chapel channel.
Blessings to you,

I have a confession…I am a coffee addict. Not a shocker for anyone who knows me. I am also a flavored coffee creamer addict, too. Until I heard of bulletproof coffee. I began drinking my coffee this way after the New Year- you simply brew a cup of hot coffee and blend it in a […]
sometimes my passion turns to pride my vision blurred by my own eyes I need more of You and less of me I’m quick to doubt, easy to shake ruled by emotions that I can’t fake I need more of You and less of me less of me and more of You take these hands and take these feet […]
Tears of joy will stream down their faces, and I will lead them home with great care. They will walk beside quiet streams, and on smooth paths where they will not stumble. Jeremiah 31:9 In recent years I have become to enjoy the challenge of a good hike. It has become an aspiration among friends to […]
In Your Presence… is where I want to be. Where nothing else matters… just You and me. No condemnation… and absolutely no fear. Just total Peace… as I feel You near. For nothing compares… to being in Your Arms. When I am in Your Presence… and safe from all harm. For You are my Lord… […]
One evening I was standing at the checkout counter at a local pharmacy, and like countless times before- I was asked if I wanted to donate a dollar to a charity. I usually said no, and honestly it was just a natural response. But something was different this time. I had an entire conversation in […]
I never cease being amazed at today’s technology. The ease and speed involved in setting up and then launching a website or blog is just incredible. I have a blog through another provider and yet to “like” or “comment” on WordPress sites, you need to be registered. A great plan if you’re providing a service and looking to grow your base of customers. So, what does this have to do with my blog? Really, not a great deal, except that I find the process interesting and not unfamiliar. Our society today, expects things fast and easy. These two points sum up the way we’ve come to understand all things should be. Fast and easy, immediate gratification with as little effort as possible. For WordPress consumers, this is a perfect setup. No huge effort and best of all, no financial expense. For WordPress, increased customers will ultimately lead to greater exposure and web activity. Then, they have now and will continue to gain customer’s who upgrade to their premium service and grow from there. I’m not knocking WordPress here, just sharing my observation of the process. It works, I’m here and so are you.
My goal is to share with you my Journey with Jesus. Actually, what I expect to share will be the points that HE will lay on my heart. In this life we need to share in the thoughts and experiences of other people who are looking to follow Jesus daily. Our life is changed everyday in ways we don’t often realize and when we do notice, we’re hard pressed to explain the how, when or why. My goal will be to place a new entry on a weekly basis. I hope that what is shared here will be beneficial and that Jesus will be glorified by what is shared. This being said, I find that my relationship with Jesus has been anything but fast, easy or without effort. I believe everyone will agree; relationships don’t happen overnight, they aren’t easy (certainly not initially) and effort is essential. While we may want the “fast food” kind of relationship with Jesus, it proves impossible and it’s just NOT good for us.
I welcome your thoughts and observations. The most important part of this blog will always be Jesus Christ and what HE alone leads me to write here. My desire is to glorify HIM and share what HE directs. Between now and the next posting, I pray HIS Peace and Presence will fill your days and that you will know the Blessings that come with a fully engaged relationship with Jesus as Lord and Savior, Friend and Companion.
Blessings and Peace Always,
