Have You Seen The Glory?

Have You Seen The Glory?

In Exodus 33:18-20 Moses asked God to be shown His glory, to which God replied that Moses would see His goodness and hear the proclamation of His name, but could not physically look on His face. In due time God sent Jesus to become a part of mankind, and through Him we can see God’s […]

A Living Fountain

A Living Fountain

In Jeremiah 2:13 God portrays Himself as “The fountain of living waters”. The problem is that the people to whom He is speaking have “hewn out for themselves cisterns – broken cisterns that can hold no water.” People still do this today; I ask you, have you tried everything this world placed before you trying […]

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 […]

Our Intercessor

Our Intercessor

In our last meditation we noted that Jesus does not forsake us in our moment of weakness even if we stumble; rather He intercedes for us before the Father as in Romans 8:34. Today we turn our attention to John 17 where we find Jesus praying for His followers, including us as verse 20 makes […]

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 […]

 What’s In Your “Heart”?

 What’s In Your “Heart”?

During the Christmas season the heart of our attention seems often to be focused on the coming of King Jesus to this earth, on the joy of birth, on the joy of new life; but unlike the first Adam who was created to live but entered into a contract with the enemy and death, Jesus […]

“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 […]

As We Celebrate Christmas

As We Celebrate Christmas

As we approach the day we call Christmas we hear much said and sang about shepherds, angels, sheep, the manger; these however are not the real “Christmas” story, they are only props surrounding the real message of the occasion, the message delivered by the angel to the shepherds in Luke 2:11 was, “For there is […]

Celebrating “Christmas”

Celebrating “Christmas”

As we approach the Christmas holiday let us pause and think about the day we call “Christmas. First we are quite sure that Jesus was not born on December 25 or January 7 (Orthodox Christmas), and there is really no Biblical command to set aside a special day to celebrate His birth; now that does […]

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 […]
