News and Muse

Some of you may know that I am between jobs.   I told my friend Char Lay Htoo about this a week ago.   Today while I was giving his family a ride to church he said “John has no job, but now he has a bigger job”.  He noted that I am always busy helping my Burmese friends.  It is a great honor to serve God, to be the hands and feet of Jesus.  I seek to rest in the everlasting love of God.  Look at these words of Brennan Manning, “… I came to the inescapable conclusion that the degree of Abba’s love for me is in direct proportion to his love for Jesus” (Furious Longing of God, p. 61).


About johnmcmurphy

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor. If you need to get in touch with me, just leave a comment, I screen all comments and so you can leave further contact information which I will erase before it is published. -John
