Greatness & the Garden (Luke 22:21-46)

As the disciples begin to consider who among them is the one betraying Jesus (each one honestly considering whether he might be the betrayer himself), their minds are quickly taken up with the consideration of who among them is the greatest. In other words, at the depth of Christ's humiliation, the disciples are arguing about their own greatness. We see similar discussions...

Passover Plans (Luke 22:1-23; Exodus 12)

These verses in Luke 22 begin a rapid movement toward the cross. While the chief priests and scribes (the very men who should have been most prepared to receive Christ!) were seeking how they might kill Jesus, the unthinkable happens: one of Jesus' own disciples came to them to conspire with them. Although Judas himself was led by his own greedy desires and made no effort ...

Impending Destruction and Future Redemption (Luke 21:5-38)

Ironically the temple, the place where God met with His people, had become the headquarters for Israel's rebellion against God and His Messiah, and it will be swept away as the city is overtaken by Gentiles. It not only lacked spiritual worship from the heart, but it also lacked the presence of the Holy Spirit. Outwardly, the temple was beautifully adorned with precious st...

The God Who Draws Near (Exodus 3-4)

Just before this interaction between Moses and the Lord, we read that as Israel cried out to God from their bondage, God heard the cry of Israel's groaning in the land of Egypt, remembered the covenant that He had made with Israel's fathers, saw the sons of Israel in their distress, and took notice of them (2:23-24). However, not only does God hear, remember, see, and noti...

Privileges, Promises, and Perfecting Holiness (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1)

When Paul says that we are not to be bound together, or unequally yoked, with unbelievers, he is not saying that we should have no association with the unconverted or that we should become isolated and secluded from the world. In fact, Christians are to be purposeful in relating with unbelievers for the sake of displaying to them the glories of Christ and His gospel. We sh...

The Criteria of Faithful Ministry (2 Corinthians 6:1-13)

As those who are on earth in the period between the first and second comings of Christ, we live in the acceptable time in which God is accepting repentant sinners and is reconciling them to Himself through the saving work of Jesus Christ. Paul says that "God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent" (Acts 17:30). Though the day of wrath is coming, t...

An Analysis of Faithful Ministry (2 Corinthians 5:11-21)

Paul was motivated by the fear of God. He knew that all mankind will appear before God in the final judgment, both believers and unbelievers. However, while the unbeliever is thrown into eternal punishment, the Christian is not in danger of condemnation or punishment. Instead, the Christian will receive God's commendation and approval at the judgment seat based on the moti...

Is Heaven for Real? (Luke 20:27-21:4)

The Sadducees, who believed the soul perishes with the body at death, seek to trap Jesus with an impossible question in order to squash the notion of a resurrection. Jesus responds not by picking apart their flawed argument, but by simply stating the truth. He draws the distinction between this age and that age. The Sadducees could not see the difference between this life ...

A New Citizenship (Philippians 1:27-30)

Philippi was a colony of Rome, populated by Roman citizens and governed directly by the Emperor. But by the time Paul and his companions had left that city, those who believed their message now had a new citizenship and a new King. They had now become a colony of heaven, an outpost on earth under the authority of the King of kings. In these verses Paul is urging the believ...

"Where Are You?" (Genesis 3:9)

After he sinned, Adam should have been in pursuit of God's forgiveness instead of attempting to escape from Him. Like Adam, in our own attempt to avoid God we also try to hide from Him or to create our own gods to substitute for Him. Foolishly we think we can escape the judgment of God by drowning out His voice or hiding from His presence. If God should abandon us to ourse...
