Be Perfect

Our tendency to sin must never deter us from striving to be more like Christ. Christ calls all of his disciples to excel, to rise above mediocrity, and to mature in every area, becoming like him. Those who strive to become perfect will one day be perfect, even as Christ is perfect (1   John …

Salt

‘“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.’ Matthew 5:13 The comparison with salt has always been interesting to me. Salt has the properties of a flavor enhancer, a …

Integrity

John the Baptist called people to more than words or ritual; he told them to change their behavior. “Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins” means that God looks beyond our words and religious activities to see if our conduct backs up what we say, and he judges our …

Purpose

God has given each of us a purpose for living, and we can trust him to guide us. John did not have the complete Bible as we know it today, but he focused his life on the truth he knew from the available Old Testament Scriptures. Likewise, we can discover in God’s Word the truths …

Forgiveness

When Stephen forgave those who stoned him in Acts 7:60, he may have opened the door to the eventual salvation of some of them. In Matthew 16:19, Jesus said that whatever the apostles bound on earth would be bound in heaven, and whatever they loosed on earth would be loosed in heaven, and in John …

The Fall of Jerusalem

This was this situation in Jerusalem just before the fall. Sound familiar? Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eleven years. But Zedekiah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord his God, and he refused to humble himself when the prophet Jeremiah spoke to him …

Nehemiah: A Man of Prayer

From “Life Application Study Bible NLT” by Tyndale House Publishers, Tyndale – “With little time to think, Nehemiah immediately prayed. Eight times in this book we read that he prayed spontaneously (2:4; 4:4, 5, 9; 5:19; 6:14; 13:14, 22, 29). Nehemiah prayed at any time, even while talking with others. He knew that God is …

You Must be Born Again

John 3:3-8 I think we lose sight of the impact Jesus words had on Nicodemus because of our familiarity in the modern day church with the term “born again.” I’m not a Greek scholar, but I can imagine from Nicodemus’s reaction that he took what Jesus said as being along the lines of “unless you …

Jesus And Repentance
