The Faithfulness of God (2 Corinthians 1:12-24)

The apostle Paul had made changes to his original plans to visit the church in Corinth, and some among the Corinthians were accusing him of unfaithfulness or insincerity because he did not end up doing what he initially intended. Paul responded to the accusations by revealing that his life and decisions were shaped by his theological convictions. In other words, his minist...

"The God of all Comfort" (2 Corinthians 1:1-11)

Paul's prayer for the Corinthians is that they would continue to receive grace (unmerited favor) from God, and the peace that comes with it, based on the person and work of Jesus Christ. We live in a pluralistic society that believes all religions experience the same God, only in different ways. However, we know that there is only one true God because He has spoken to us t...

The Narrow Way, the Wide Welcome, and Dealing with Dropsy (Luke 13:22-14:6)

When Jesus is asked how many will be saved, he doesn't exactly answer the question, but raises the more important issue: "What about you?" Jesus' response to him is in two parts: (1) though this man is a jew he might not be saved, along with many other Jews, and (2) many that the Jews would never fathom being saved will be. Those who are found knocking at the door and who ...

Gospel Pictures (Luke 12:49-13:21)

Having shared two parables about being ready and alert, Jesus now warns once again of the impending judgment (12:49). In thinking about judgment, He refers to the baptism that he was to undergo, which was complete immersion in death, both spiritual and physical. Though He came to bring about everlasting peace between God and men who who had been His enemies, Jesus also tea...

Perspective on Possessions (Luke 12:13-48)

While Jesus is in the midst of a serious warning with regard to blaspheming the Holy Spirit, a man speaks up demanding that Christ intervene in his family squabble over the inheritance. Most likely, the man's father had died and he probably was owed some of the inheritance, but Jesus is not as interested in whether this man was in the right or wrong as He is in the man's a...

Reinforcing Foundations: Missions (Isaiah 6; 2 Corinthians 5)

In our church covenant, after expressing our commitment to give ourselves daily to God and then expressing our commitment to give ourselves to each other as the family of God, we then express our commitment to give ourselves as light and salt in this dark world, that those who are strangers to God may see our good works and glorify our Father who is in heaven. The order of...

Reinforcing Foundations: Fellowship (Hebrews 10:1-25)

God has spoken to us in the clearest and best way imaginable, through His Son. The writer of Hebrews makes every effort to show that Jesus Christ is the best communication of God to us, demonstrating through comparisons and contrasts that He is unquestionably supreme. In the first chapter alone the letter to the Hebrews reveals that He has a limitless inheritance as God's ...

Reinforcing Foundations: Prayer (Exodus 17)

Like water to fish, milk to an infant, and oxygen to our lungs, prayer is vital to the Christian. However, because we are so reluctant to humility, dependency, and honesty, prayer is the most difficult thing we will do in the Christian life. In John Bunyan's words, "Prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectional pouring out of the soul to God, through Christ, by the strength o...

Reinforcing Foundations: Bible (Psalm 19)

One of the unquestionable foundations of the Christian life is the seeking of the Lord in the Bible. Whether you are a church member, a regular attender, a seeker or inquirer of the Faith, a child, a disinterested bystander, or just neglectful, giving greater attention to God's Word and its application in your life will profit you. In Psalm 19, there are three revelations ...

Pharisees, Legalists, and Hypocrites (Luke 11:37-12:12)

Judging from what Jesus teaches in this section of Luke, the biggest danger we face as a church is being theologically informed, religiously active, morally conservative people whose hearts are far from God. Jesus argues that there is nothing more dangerous than pharisaism, legalism, and hypocrisy. When Jesus neglected the ceremonial washing before the meal, it was not bec...
