How are we doing with the treasure entrusted to all who are born-again,
so that we might glorify God through holy living and fruitful service?

See Jesus' Parable of the Minas, Luke 19:12-27

What you'll find at the 10minas Blog...

Jesus spoke gently and kindly to children and to people in need, but He had high expectations and strong words for those who claim to be His disciples. You will be challenged to think critically about how seriously we are taking Him, and will be invited to engage with Him in the most exciting and rewarding adventure that you could imagine.

That something big is going on in our world is obvious to many. 10Minas is based on an assumption that, just as God orchestrated things in Rome and Israel, and had special people in certain places for specific reasons for the first coming of Jesus, so He is aligning things today for another great event.

Luke 19:12-27

#62 – Who Are We – 3

So, who are we? Well, like Israel among the heathen nations under the Old Covenant,* we are a set-apart, holy nation. That defines us individually and collectively and some aspects are more appealing than others. OWNED BY ANOTHERTo start with, do you remember “God’s special possession” in yesterday’s text? What does it mean to possess…

#61 – Who Are We – 2

If this feels heavy to you, don’t let it condemn or even frustrate you because of where you’re at. Simply invite Jesus to use it to draw you closer to Himself. Few in the pulpit are teaching of the small gate and the narrow way that are essential to authentic faith, but many in the…

#60 – Who Are We? – 1

A PEOPLE FOR GODGod has always wanted a people of His own among all the peoples of the earth. They would be separate from the others, marked by His Presence and given to His purposes. He wants mankind to know that despite all the havoc brought on the earth by Satan, He is God and…

SOMETIMES I FEEL GUILTY – – –Sometimes I feel guilty for all the serious stuff I write. That maybe I’m like heavy clouds that hide the sun of others’ happiness. An Eeyore who wants to spoil their churchy tranquility. It would be easier to just be a nice guy and write warm fuzzy things about…

#58 – Ears to Hear, 2

We need no more proof of the condition of today’s church than our failure to be preserving salt and a guiding light to our nation. Don’t we often have the form of godliness but deny its power, choosing instead to put our confidence in the flesh?*  TOGETHERWe like to think of ourselves as God-pleasers, but…

#57 – Ears to Hear, 1 of 2

AT PLAYI recently watched a 3-year-old at play with friends. He seemed oblivious to his father’s voice even though it was loud enough for one who had ears to hear. You know where this is going. FALSE SECURITYWe American Christians are at play too and many are oblivious to our Father’s voice. They are resting…

#56 – Does Perspective Matter?

I view “today” from the perspective that a God-hating and righteousness-hating spirit is increasingly informing our leaders and shaping our land. That the spirit of the antichrist is already here, as John wrote,* is confirmed daily. God is warning the Church through many voices, and any humble and wise observer of our moral, political and…

#55 – From the Palm Branches to the Cross

How could Jesus have gone so wrong that in only five days the palm branches and the jubilant “Hosanna to the Son of David” could deteriorate into the vicious shouts of “Crucify Him?” * A PR BLUNDER?The first thing Jesus did after the Triumphal Entry was to cleanse the temple. Maybe not a good PR…

#54 – Come to the Table, 3

EASTER!Easter celebrates when Jesus purchased the banquet food and  started to set the table for us, and Pentecost is when He said “The banquet is spread, come and dine.” When we are born again, God gives us the nature of His Kingdom, the new spirit realm we have been transferred into.* We have new desires…

#53 – Come to the Table, 2

GOOD GRUBThere are no artificial flavors or preservatives in the food on Jesus’ table. Or refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oil. It’s all from His Garden; grown from heritage seed; and pesticide free because He dealt with the pests about 2000 years ago. IF – –If you think there’s no hope for…
