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

#25 – Sowing the Seed

SOWING THE SEED One will view “investment” differently if we approach it from the standpoint of “increase” having to do with bringing souls into the Kingdom, and our eternal reward, instead of earthly benefits. God prospered us for His Kingdom purposes but until now we haven’t taken that seriously. I take seriously the likelihood that…

#24 – Our Place of Peace

OUR PLACE OF PEACE There’s nothing like God’s Word to instruct and comfort us in times of uncertainty and its fear-inducing imaginations. It is backed up by His power, His character, and His love for us, and gives us a rock to stand on even as frightening waves come crashing over us. Let’s start with…

#23 – The Institutional Church

THE INSTITUTIONAL CHURCH Someone asked what I mean by the “Institutional Church.” (IC) An institution is an organized social unit of any size which uses designated leaders and enforceable rules to influence peoples’ behavior. Members typically have a common sense of purpose, and shared values and beliefs which help give them identity and unity. Family,…

#22 – Counterfeit or Real?

COUNTERFEIT OR REAL? Any-one or any-thing that draws the eyes of my heart away from Jesus is a worthless counterfeit. However, it can still have the power to cheat me out of the priceless gifts of righteousness, peace and joy that are mine in Christ. But how do we know when we are being deceived?…

#21 – By the Word of the Lord

In Jesus’ Name, may it be as settled in our hearts as it is in the heavens! By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,    their starry host by the breath of his mouth.7 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars;    he puts the deep into storehouses.8 Let all the earth fear the Lord;    let all…

#20 – Jeremiah’s Call

Many of you know of my sense that America could only come to this place of chaos because we Christians have not been her preserving salt and guiding light. We’ve been too interested in pursuing the American Dream. But Jesus is coming back for a bride who is “a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle…

#19 – Help For the Saints

HELP FOR THE SAINTSHere are some resources to help you think through current and upcoming events. Most can be read online, downloaded onto your device and/or printed. If plans for Jan. 20 continue as now generally assumed, it probably won’t be long before Christian-base web sites like www.john2031.com will be considered hate speech and will…

So Many Unknowns But – –

To my former 10Minas Blog Readers: I have been posting almost daily on Facebook (Ken Stoltzfus – Kidron) but am now putting the same messages here because of concerns about FB’s censoring of Christian-related materials. Here is my latest post there. More tomorrow! ———————- SO MANY UNKNOWNS BUT – – I’ve never KNOWN a time…

#17 – What’s Your R.O.I.?

Little in life better defines which of the two spirit-kingdoms we find our core identity in, then what we do with our money. “Follow the money” doesn’t only apply to politicians. ROI is a measure used to evaluate the performance of an investment, or to compare one investment to another. Should Christians look at that…

#16 – The Value of a Dollar

What can a dollar do? Or $10, or $50 or $100? And then there’s 1,000 of them, and then 10,000, and on to 100,000 – – and it just keeps going. Money talks. It has power! It promises to fill our stomach, or meet other immediate but short-lived needs. It can promise to make friends…
