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...

The Church: Privileges, Mission, and Motivation (1 Peter 2:9)

A Chosen People refers to the special affection and saving love that God has sovereignly set on those whom He has added to the Church through Christ. Though we are all unworthy, and were enemies and rebels by nature, He chooses us despite all that we are and pours out His saving grace on us in order that we might all be to the praise of the glory of His grace....

Living by Faith (2 Corinthians 5:1-10)

In these verses from 1 Corinthians 5, we see that a life of faith is a life lived trusting that God will fulfill His promises, and that walking by faith results in a life that is pleasing to God. Rather than a vague feeling of optimism or a blind leap into darkness, faith is the assurance that God will bring about all that He has revealed in His Word. It is the ability to ...

Authority & Ownership (Luke 20:1-26)

Jesus is now in Jerusalem and this is the last Tuesday of his life before the crucifixion. His influence is increasing and the religious leaders' hatred of him is also growing, knowing that their power is waning. Jesus was not an officially recognized Rabbi, but there was no question that he had authority. The only question was regarding the source of the authority....
