Do You Want To Be Made Whole? – John 5:6

When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? – John 5:6 Jesus asked many rhetorical questions. As a master teacher, the Lord seemed to use nearly every occasion not only to glorify God the Father but […]

Teach Me Thy Way, O Lord – Psalm 86:11

Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. – Psalm 86:11 I have noticed that prayers are often filled with what we want from God. Please do this and please do that. Help this person and such things. We should do better. No proper […]

My Father’s Name – John 5:43

I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. – John 5:43 When Jesus Christ met opposition, He did not respond in the way you might expect. He was accused of heresy, blasphemy, insurrection and being possessed, but His most […]

Take Heed – Luke 11:35

But Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God… – Matthew 6:33

Matthew 6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. “But” can be a powerful word. It changes the direction of a whole idea, and no book uses this word more masterfully than the Bible. Just a few examples show the importance […]

Hold to the One – Luke 16:13

No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. – Luke 16:13 People say that almost nothing arouses anger more than messing with their money. Understandably we are sensitive […]
