“So Jesus said to them, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing"‭‭ (John‬ ‭5:19-20‬a... Continue Reading →

Aroma of Christ

“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death,... Continue Reading →

An Opportune Time

"And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time" (Luke 4:13 ESV). Do you remember the story of the temptation of Jesus.

Sometimes he spoke when he should have kept his mouth shut! This was not one of those times. We... Continue Reading →

“To reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments" (Colossians‬ ‭2:2-4‬ ‭ESV‬‬). The first thing that drew my attention to... Continue Reading →

Is There More To It? Part 3

Monday we looked at salvation and the milk of the Word. Yesterday we discovered that selfishness keeps us from living our lives for Jesus, who died and was raised for us. We found that we became members of the Body of Christ. Today we will look to the future, not the "pie in the sky" future, but... Continue Reading →
