Biblical Reflections: Luke 6:37-38

Luke 6:37-38 – Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:  Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that […]

Biblical Reflections: Proverbs 20:22

Proverbs 20:22 – Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the Lord, and he shall save thee. I believe you know that the Bible tells us that vengeance belongs to the Lord.  He is the just and impartial Judge.  The Scriptures also say that He is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34-35).  […]

Biblical Reflections: Psalm 85:2

Psalm 85:2 – Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah. Where would we be without forgiveness?  Guilt would mount up to overwhelm us.  Lasting comfort comes from knowing through the Holy Spirit that Jesus came not simply to aid those that were merely mistaken in their way, […]

Biblical Reflections: Matthew 11:28-30

Matthew 11:28-30 – Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. […]

Biblical Reflections: 2 Timothy 2:22

2 Timothy 2:22 – Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. I imagine that after his conversion, the Apostle Paul was an excellent mentor. The book of Acts mentions several men that Paul counted as sons in the faith. We […]

Biblical Reflections: Isaiah 55:6-7

Isaiah 55:6-7 – Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:  Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. […]

Biblical Reflections: Matthew 5:43-44

Matthew 5:43-44 – Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; What if every time […]

Biblical Reflections: Proverbs 1:7

Proverbs 1:7 – The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. They say that the best players are the onse who can be coached. They are able to listen and respect the leadership of their superiors. The same is true of us, because we all play a […]

Biblical Reflections: Jeremiah 23:23-24

Jeremiah 23:23-24 – Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off?  Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him saith the Lord? Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord. Do you feel alone? Are you misunderstood? Rest assured that you […]

Biblical Reflections: Romans 12:21

Romans 12:21 – Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. Most of us have heard the saying, fight fire with fire. However, we do not see firefighters going into a burning house with flamethrowers. There is a place for a controlled burn occasionally, but these opportunities are rare in house fires. Instead […]
