Love With Us

“Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love” (1 John 4:8). The most memorized verse in the Bible is John 3:16. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have[…]

Ultimate Peace

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid” (John 14:27). This second week of Advent, we look forward to Christ’s birth and his promise of peace.[…]

We Do Not Lose Heart

“So we do not lose heart, Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen by to[…]

What About God’s Grace?

Ephesians 1:7-9 – “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight.” I recently heard someone say that the idea of grace terrifies them. When I first heard this[…]

The Lord is Near … Call On Him in Truth

Psalm 145:18 – “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” This morning as I sat down to read my Bible, I went on to my Bible app to check what my scheduled reading was for today. As I opened[…]

God’s Discipline

“Then the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. And the people came to Moses and said, ‘We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you. Pray to the LORD, that he take away[…]

Abide in Me

“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears[…]

Questions

1 Corinthians 15:1-5 – “Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I[…]

Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

“Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it and laid incense on it and offered unauthorized fire before the Lord, which he had not commanded them. And fire came out from before the Lord and consumed them, and they died before[…]

Who Are We?

“The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs – heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him” (Romans 8:16-17). “In all these things we[…]

All of Who We Are!

“So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied” (Acts 9:31). What is a typical day in your life? What does a typical season[…]

Be Angry!

“Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil” (Ephesians 4:26-27). Whenever we think of anger, we think of things like fits of rage, temper tantrums, loss of self-control, and a tailspin born out of selfish[…]

Pray without Ceasing!

“Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church” (Acts 12:5). God works through our prayer. This truth should transform us. If we truly lived our theology, we would walk differently in light of the fact that God works through our prayers.[…]

Homesick for Heaven

Psalm 27:4 – “One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.” As I read through[…]

Sent Ones

“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit’” (John 20:21-22). As Jesus was sent by the Father to fulfill[…]
