Growing Up

Growing Up

Growing is a natural part of life and spiritual growing is no exception. In 2 Peter 3:18 we read, “but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…” Paul also, in Ephesians 4:15, speaks of growing “up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ”. Then 1 […]

Who Is My Neighbor?

Who Is My Neighbor?

A neighbor can be viewed as someone that lives close to you, but also as a fellowman, as the Greek word used by a lawyer in Luke 10:29 “And who is my neighbor?” as well as Webster bears out. As Jesus tells the parable of “The good Samaritan” in verses 25-39 of this chapter, a […]

God’s Mysterious House

God’s Mysterious House

The Bible uses at least two metaphors explaining God’s house. One of them is found in 2 Corinthians 5:1-8 where the Apostle speaks of our physical body, which he describes as a tent, (a temporary dwelling), yet 1 Corinthians 6:19 says it is the temple or dwelling place of the Holy Spirit; however it will […]

The Vineyard Of The Lord

The Old Testament prophet Isaiah in his beautiful poetic style speaks or sings a song of his beloved’s (YEHOVAH, THE LORD GOD) vineyard as an allegory of Israel and Judah (the Old Testament church), in 5:1-7.

Wonderful Works (Part One)

In a recent meditation we looked at the wonderfulness of our Lord, His Name, and glimpsed how wonderful He really is. Today we are continuing to look at His wonderfulness, particularly how He seeks to reveal Himself to us. In Psalm 40:5 the Psalmist David wrote, “Many, O Lord my God, are your wonderful works […]

Wonderful Name

Wonderful Name

When we think of the wonderfulness of Jesus the first Scripture that likely comes to mind is Isaiah 9:6 where we are given some descriptive insight into His coming and mission. One of the unique things about this verse is the four or five descriptive names given to Him. Names in the Bible often had […]

Two Kinds Of Pleasure

Two Kinds Of Pleasure

Pleasure is a feeling that is joyful and delightful, bringing with it a sense of satisfaction; we could include enjoyment and happiness as synonyms. There are really two kinds of pleasure, the first we tend to chase through things the Bible describes as “the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the […]
