  • Faith, Hope and Love

    Hebrews chapter 11 is known as the chapter of faith.  Faith is defined in the first verse.  Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith is a firm persuasion – a conviction.  Romans 10:17 “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word […]

  • Being One Who Serves

    Jesus Christ is our example in life.  One of the important examples He left for us is the example of being a servant.  Philippians 2:5-8 “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but […]

  • About The Kingdom

    Jesus and His disciples preached “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” People were wondering when the kingdom would come.  Luke 17:20-21 “Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, ‘The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will […]

  • The Kingdom

    Throughout the Bible, God’s people have interacted with kingdoms of this world.  These include the Egyptian kingdom, the Assyrian kingdom, the Babylonian kingdom and the Roman kingdom. When the Israelites were captives in the Babylonian kingdom, King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream.  Daniel told the king his dream and its interpretation. Daniel 2:31-41; 44 “You, O […]

  • Am I In The Place of God?

    We understand that we are very different from God.  He is all-powerful; we have very limited power.  He is all-knowing; our knowledge is very limited.  He is everywhere; we are limited to our physical bodies.  He is spirit; we are physical. He sees everything; our sight is limited.  He is righteous; we are sinners.  And […]

  • A Mediator

    The Israelites had left Egypt and had come to Mount Sinai.  The Lord promised to come down upon the mountain in the sight of all the people.  But He cautioned in Exodus 19:12 “You shall set bounds for the people all around, saying, ‘Take heed to yourselves that you do not go up to the […]

  • Flee Sexual Immorality

    In the beginning, God made man and woman and provided for their union in marriage.  Genesis 2:21-24 “And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had […]

  • Angels

    Many years ago, my wife was in a near-fatal car accident.  She was making a turn onto a busy street and thought that the traffic was clear, but she didn’t see a truck until just before it struck her on the driver’s door of her car. Her pelvis was broken, a rib was broken, and […]

  • Commitments

    Jesus said this about marriage in Mark 10:6-9 “But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh.  […]

  • Resurrection

    We have several instances in the Bible of individuals who died and came back to life.  In 1 Kings 17, we read about the widow of Zarephath.  Her son stopped breathing and she sent for the prophet Elijah.  1 Kings 17:21-22 “And he stretched himself out on the child three times, and cried out to […]
