Your Light

Your Light

Peter, that famous Apostle, the one whose confession of faith is the bedrock and pillar of the Church as seen in Matthew 16:16-19, later wrote to the Church in his first epistle 2:9, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises […]

Restoration

Restoration

Peter loved the Lord very dearly, yet in a moment of weakness he stumbled. Jesus in that wonderful foreknowledge of God knew this would happen and warned Peter in advance, adding, “I have prayed for you that your faith should not fail” Luke 22:31-32. What a wonderful thought that if we stumble in a moment […]

Joy In God’s Presence

Joy In God’s Presence

In Psalm 16:11 having just spoken prophetically of Messiahs resurrection (attested to by Peter in Acts 2:29-32) David declares “You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” In spite of being “A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief” (while in […]

God’s Revelation Of Himself

God’s Revelation Of Himself

Psalm 19 speaks of two specific ways in which God has revealed Himself to the world. First in verses 1-6 He gives us a general revelation of Himself, His Power, Might, and Goodness through what we call “nature”. Though incomplete, the Apostle says “Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness…” Acts 14:17. No matter […]

“For Unto Us A Child Is Born”

“For Unto Us A Child Is Born”

  If we consider Christmas as a celebration of the birth of Jesus, let us consider what His birth really means. We have a tendency to focus our attention on the humble surroundings of that magnificent occurrence, the heavenly annunciations of it, and the visitors that came in witness of it. His birth was not […]

The Good News

The Good News

The word gospel means “a good message” or as someone said, “Good news”. And “The gospel of the kingdom” is super good news, the news of the heavenly realm and rule brought to this earth by Jesus the Royal King! His message from the very beginning was “…the kingdom of God is at hand…” Mark […]

The Exchange

The Exchange

“…the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 6:23. This is what the birth of Jesus is all about; the celebration is not primarily about His birth, after all every one of us have been born and except for His conception there was nothing unusual about that; neither is it […]

Followers Of Jesus

Followers Of Jesus

As followers of the Lord Jesus we have been commissioned to carry on His ministry here on earth while He prepares a place for us in heaven (John 14:2-3). This is illustrated to us in the parable of the minas in Luke19:11-37 in which the nobleman equipped his servants and instructed them to “Do business […]

Growing Up Into Christ

Growing Up Into Christ

Growing is a phenomenon that we are all familiar with, and it includes every living thing on earth whether people, animals, or plants. As long as we live we grow! Plants and trees grow producing their fruit and beauty; even as “mature” adults we are told that cells in our body continually die off and […]

Diligently

Diligently

Our King James Bible translates 23 to 27 Greek and Hebrew words all with the single word diligently the different numbers arising because in some cases it comes from two or three words; so in reading our Bibles the word diligently must be viewed in the setting in which it is surrounded. In Exodus 15:26 […]
