Our Unity in Christ

When you come together, it is not the Lord’s supper that you eat. For in eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal. One goes hungry, another gets drunk. 1 Corinthians 11:20-21 In 1 Corinthians 11, Paul explains to the church in Corinth that they are not properly partaking of the Lord’s Supper. Their method of taking it is […]

Preaching from Jesus – Money and Anxiety

Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon on the Mount focused primarily on the heart. It is not enough to look the part of a disciple. Instead God expects us to live it in our core. Nowhere is that more evident than when he commands us to cast off anxiety. In this lesson we look at Jesus commands concerning money and anxiety […]

The People Love It So

An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land:the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes?

Imperishable Redemption

knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 1 Peter 1:18-19 What would you pay to receive salvation?

Do Not Grow Weary

Why Have You Forsaken

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning? Psalm 22:1 The gospels record Jesus’ death but do not go dive into the deeper details of His pain and anguish. Nor do they describe what is going on in His mind as He hangs on the […]

Perspectives from Psalms – Psalm 15

Who can come before the Lord? What does God look for in those who seek Him? David goes through and prepares a list. Much like the Lord tells Samuel, the focus is on our heart and the small things we do every day.

No Inheritance

And the LORD said to Aaron, “You shall have no inheritance in their land, neither shall you have any portion among them. I am your portion and your inheritance among the people of Israel.

Avoiding the Cup of Demons

You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. 1 Corinthians 10:21 In 1 Corinthians 10, Paul warns the Christians there against idolatrous worship. He starts by using the Israelites as an example. As they came out of Egypt, they were constantly […]
