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

#140 – The Pathway to A Reprobate Mind, Part 1

Not long ago, rational thought processes drew from long-held moral and societal principles and led to logical, common-sense conclusions that set the standard in our society. History provided a reservoir of sound precedents that were respected. Today is different. Things no longer need to make sense. They are validated if they reflect the emotionally and…

#139 – The Great Boat Lift of 9/11

Read this story, or at least look at the photos and captions, and let the spirit of it sink into you. https://www.nj.com/news/2021/09/the-great-boat-lift-of-911.html As you do, ask yourself how different this was from the rescue mission that Jesus left with the Church. And ask if we are willing to rescue the lost and care for the…

#138 – The Power of the Jab

I’ve seen a lot of controversy but nothing with the power to separate a nation, friends, churches and families like the jab does. Hell celebrates. It has taken us to new levels of throwing others into broad categories of supposedly irrational beliefs that assumedly lead to actions with dire consequences. Opposing high stakes viewpoints held…

#137 – What If – – ?

Is it possible that events leading up to Jesus’ return are as different from what many expect, as His first arrival was different from what the Jews expected? Could our expectation of escaping pain, cause us to miss seeing God’s sovereign plan and redemptive action today? What if He is working toward something far grander…

#136 – “Maybe We Should Just Wait and See”

I was flying a 1940’s Douglas DC-3 aircraft from Arizona to Pennsylvania when my co-pilot said that smoke was coming from the right engine. The worn-out engines were on the airplane as it sat in the desert for years before we bought it, so I was alert to possible troubles. My options were to take…

#135 – When Will Nothing Else Matter?

What does it take to bring one to the place where nothing matters more than knowing Jesus? I’m wondering what matters to our brothers and sisters in Afghanistan who are being hunted down today because of their faith. They must abandon everything to save their life, and then many must give up their life in…

#134 – Foreshadows of Despotism

Despotism: “oppressive absolute power and authority exerted by government.” (Merriam-Webster.) THE DARK SIDEAmerica is facing a kind of darkness that we never imagined possible. Sure, there was Germany’s Hitler, China’s Mao Zedong and others through history – – but this is the United States of America. “Christian America.” Those things don’t happen here. Except that…

#133 – The Delusional Church

A delusion for American Christians is our confidence that our institutional church truly represents the Body of Christ, and that the life it advocates is truly the life of the Kingdom of God. Both the pulpit and the pew believe those convenient lies. There are exceptions to that but we don’t often see them. This…

#132 – The Faith of Our Hebrews 11 Heroes

Here are some keys to the life of those heroes of faith. First was their view of God. They believed that He could and would do what He said He would do. Period! Their faith was rooted in the character and power of God Himself, and it led to obedience. How about us? Secondly, they…

#131 – Real Faith

Let’s be honest – – except for “Trusting Jesus” for our salvation we most often use “faith” to speak of “believing God” for something we want for ourselves, here and now. Maybe healing, or a better job, a new car, money to pay bills, a life partner or something else earthly and temporal. I don’t…
