All My Thoughts On God

All Trey Murray’s Thoughts on God

Working Toward Heaven

Read Galatians 3 What makes a person a Christian? Is it a stringent set of rules we must follow? Is it a code of ethics by which we must abide? It is none of these, but rather it is faith in God and His plan to sacrifice His Son for our sins. It is following … Continue reading "Working Toward Heaven"

I Find Your Lack Of Faith Disturbing

Read 1 Chronicles 10 Lack of faith in God is not just a shortcoming, it is a sin. When we place our faith in anything other than God, we are putting that ahead of God. In this we are essentially saying to God, “I don’t need you.” I don’t know about you, but I need … Continue reading "I Find Your Lack Of Faith Disturbing"


Read 1 Chronicles 16:8-34 I’m looking forward to death. No, I do not have a death wish. I’m not looking to die, but I’m ready to meet my maker. From the moment I made the choice to follow Jesus, I have been ready. In this life exists hurt, pain, disease, famine, pestilence, death. Once in … Continue reading "Death"

I’m focusing on the seeds falling in the rocky and thorny terrain. Jesus explains to his disciples that the rocky terrain … Continue reading "Soil Searching"


“When one of you has a grievance against another, does he dare go to law before the unrighteous instead of the saints? Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you incompetent to try trivial cases? Do you not know … Continue reading "Disagreement"

Self Will

Read Luke 9:23-27 At times I can be the most selfish person in the world. As a society here in America, we are indoctrinated into believing that we are entitled to what we want, we only have to work to get it. With government assistance, work may not even be necessary. Jesus said, “Whoever wants … Continue reading "Self Will"

Sin of Preference

Ephesians 4:1-16 I have to rant a bit today. My apologies to those offended. I am writing on a sin which has surged through the church, given blessing by preachers, elders, deacons, and Christians alike. It is the sin of personal preference. I visited a church this weekend where one man refused to sing praise … Continue reading "Sin of Preference"

Read John 21:1-19 Have you ever had a friend, perhaps in jr high or high school who denied knowing or being friends with you? There were many times I was the convenient friend with the newest gadgets and toys. As soon as my friends were confronted with whether they knew me or not, they usually … Continue reading "Perfect Forgiveness"
