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

Who Are We?

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

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[…]

Joy Will Come in the Morning

Job 38:1-5 – “Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: ‘Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me. Where were you when I laid the foundation of[…]

Are You Genuinely Saved?

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. Beware of[…]

Christ Alone, Cornerstone

1 Peter 2:6-8 – “For it stands in Scripture: ‘Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.’ So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe, ‘The stone[…]

Fix Your Eyes On Jesus

2 Timothy 1:4-7 – “As I remember your tears, I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy. I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as[…]

Hope No Matter What

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lam. 3:22-23). This quotation is an example of a well-known Old Testament passage with a lesser-known context. The author doesn’t write these words after a military[…]

Power That Can’t Be Explained

Acts 1:8 – “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Numerous times the New Testament authors described the power that will be present in[…]
