Preparing for an Exodus



God miraculously prepared Moses to be the deliverer of the Hebrew slaves, but it had to be according to the timing of God and by His means. The natural abilities of Moses were not enough for what needed done.  The spiritual training would be as a shepherd for Reuel, the friend of God, the priest of Midian at the base of the mountain of YHWH.

Beloved to Love



John was transformed from the “son of thunder” to the apostle of love by his experiences with Christ and lifelong fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit. He challenges us to abide more deeply with the God who manifested His love at the cross so that we might love those whom He loves so sacrificially. Let us love one another.

Put the Hurt to Rest



Jacob’s sons did not get along for much of their younger years, but as God had foretold, they would be dependent upon their brother Joseph. And following Jacob’s death and many decades, the reconciliation was formalized between them through repentance and forgiveness which set up faith in the continued fulfillment of the promises of God.

When we sing



God created us to remember songs and wanted that trait to remind us of Him and His Word. And the songs we sing can teach our minds and enliven our hearts.  So let His Word dwell in you every day of the week with musical reminders for the glory of the One who created us, Jesus Christ.

The Blessing of God



The LORD singled out Abraham and Sarah to leave their home and come be a part of God’s great plan to bless all the nations. This was perhaps more radical than we imagine with greater reward than we grasp. And they packed up and obeyed, joining God in a story that basically takes the reader through the rest of the Hebrew Scriptures and through the entirety of the New Testament.  And they gained the blessing of God, which is relationship with God Himself.  Let’s go too!

Set Apart for Glory



Romans 8 has so much going on that we don’t do it justice. The glorification of the believer in Christ Jesus is so much more than we can do justice. But we examine where Romans 8 touches on our culminating gift of salvation, where we are freed from the presence of sin on the other side of death. And how all of creation eagerly anticipates that revelation.

Set Apart for Sacred



Humans were created set apart from the rest of creation to be God’s handmade image-bearers who would proclaim the glory and dominion of the Creator God. But man detoured from that sacred task to seek his own glory. Yet the LORD does not leave a bad situation alone, He chooses to pursue His fallen image-bearers in order to restore them and empower them to their sacred task. That work is called sanctification. And sanctification prepares His image-bearers for eternity.

Righteousness of God



The righteousness of God, from God, by God accounted by the Judge to sinners seems inconceivable. Yet Jesus Christ accomplished that perfect righteousness for others and died on the cross so that the His own justice would be satisfied. And there is nothing we do to merit this transaction, not by ethnicity, works, or accomplishment. We simply must ask and trust that Christ Jesus did that righteousness for me.

Forgiven All Our Trespasses



In Christ, we have many benefits of our salvation, more than we may remember at one time. Paul, like the other apostles, writes to remind his original readers (and us) of all that we have in Christ. In this passage, he emphasizes that we have been forgiven all our trespasses. The record against us has been nailed to the cross of Jesus Christ. The enemy has no evidence to accuse those in Christ.

Complete in Christ



The virgin conception reported in Luke 1:30-35 sets the stage for an important doctrine for followers of Jesus – the Deity of Christ. The completeness of the Godhead resides in Him and thus we are complete in Christ. Don’t let anyone plunder you empty with vain deceptions to follow weaker things. Christ is where the fullness resides.
