He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands

He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands

7 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; 8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. 9 Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? 10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:7-10 At the risk of getting the melody of this childhood song stuck in your mind today, we’ll focus on the supremacy of God who reigns […]

What Is Your Role in the Family of Faith?

What Is Your Role in the Family of Faith?

3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12:3-5 “Where do I fit in?” It’s a question every Christian should ask. In fact, followers of Christ […]

The Last Supper Wasn’t the Last

The Last Supper Wasn’t the Last

This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. Matthew 26:28 What comes to mind when you think of the Last Supper? Leonardo da Vinci’s famous painting? Or maybe the celebration of the Lord’s Supper at your church? Possibly you know it as Communion or the Holy Eucharist. No matter what you call Jesus’ final meal with His disciples, it is one of the most important events in Christianity. The Lord’s Supper is important to you and me because it reminds us of God’s covenant with believers. This greatest of all agreements […]

What Will Happen When You State the Case for Your Innocence in God’s Court?

What Will Happen When You State the Case for Your Innocence in God's Court?

25 “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more. 26 Review the past for me, let us argue the matter together; state the case for your innocence.” Isaiah 43:25-26 Have you ever given your all to help someone — but they threw it all away? With arms wide open they willingly received your generous gifts. You gave from your heart, motivated by love. You invested time, energy, resources, and godly wisdom. But they squandered it all, turned their back on you, and acted as if you never existed. Our […]

Christians are Far from Perfect, We All Stumble in Many Ways

Christians are Far from Perfect, We All Stumble in Many Ways

We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check. James 3:2 Christians are imperfect. We have flaws. We all have sinned. (Romans 3:23) As James puts it, “We all stumble in many ways.” Now, if I made that statement, all who know me would agree. “Yep. He’s a stumbler.” But these words were penned by one of God’s chosen Biblical writers. His name was James, most likely Jesus’ older brother (Matthew 13:55), and the leader of the early Jerusalem church. (Acts 15) James includes […]
