How You See Them

How do you see the lost? How does God see them? If you don't see them as God does, it is time to change your perspective. It is time to recognize how valuable the harvest really is.

A Prophecy

In this short book of the minor Prophet Habakkuk, he asks the age-old questions about why the wicked prosper and why God seems to not care. A prophecy yet to be fulfilled is given and we as believers have an opportunity to be used by God in these last days!

Personal Responsibility - II

There are a couple of prevailing ideas going on in this world that are setting people up for failure. The first is nothing is my fault, and the second is the idea of entitlement. But the scripture teaches that we are to take responsibility for our own actions. Today we look at the practical application of being personally responsible.

Hebrews 13:14-25

The author continues his instructions on living a life lived by faith as he wraps up his letter to the Hebrews.

Hebrews 13:1-14

As a Christian, your life should look different to how it did and different compared to those who are not believers. Your life is one that should be lived by faith, enduring what is necessary, looking forward to the promise guaranteed in Jesus.

Hebrews 12:18-29

Building on the previous encouragements to endure and continue "in faith" the writer tells us how much better our experience is under the new covenant. It was terrifying for the Israelites to approach God but for us it's an invitation to a future "festival" gathering with those who have gone ahead of us. Meanwhile we have entered into an unshakable kingdom.

Hebrews 12:1-17

After the description of so many who lived in great faith, the author reminds his readers to, like the heroes of faith, to endure to the end. Even though they were living through trials and suffering, they could look to these men and women of faith as encouragement as they ran their own race of endurance.

Hebrews 11:17-40

Chapter 11 is often referred to as the hall of faith because the author describes the faith of men and women of God since the beginning. Faith has always been the method to secure the promises of God and His salvation. In this second half of the chapter, the author continues to demonstrate how these heroes of old exercised their faith.

Hebrews 11:1-16

In chapter 11 we begin looking at some great examples of how to live by faith. This is the famous "Faith Hall of Fame". The good news is that we can exercise the same faith. The reward is "out of this world"!

Hebrews 10:19-39

There is only one path to salvation, and that is Jesus. We can’t look to anything else to redeem us from our sins. And for these readers of this letter, the temptation would be to go back to the Mosaic system they lived under before. But the author of Hebrews warns his readers that there is no going back, and to do so would only secure judgement. Instead, they should have faith that endures to the end, securing their heavenly, eternal blessing.

Discipleship 101

The word disciple used in the New Testament means to be a pupil or student in contrast to the master. In all cases it implies that the person not only accepts the views of the teacher, but that he also is practicing these views. This year, I want to refocus on discipleship.
