The Only Person of Our Worship

GENESIS 4:3–5 3In the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground, 4and Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat portions. And the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, 5but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. In this passage, we see Cain and his younger brother, Abel, giving their offering to God. They knew that they were giving an offering to…

Righteousness

ISAIAH 59:16 He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no one to intercede; then his own arm brought him salvation, and his righteousness upheld him. The prophet Isaiah was describing the condition of their nation: there was inequity, injustice, violence, and corruption. He said that because righteousness stands far away (Isaiah 59:14), the people have been separated from God. The injustice in the land has left God’s people hopeless. But God wanted Isaiah to not…

Blessed as an Heir

GALATIANS 4:1,7 1Here is what I have been saying. As long as your own children are young, they are no different from slaves in your house. They are no different, even though they will own all the property . . . 7So you aren’t a slave any longer. You are God’s child. Because you are his child, God gives you the rights of those who are his children. What really makes the Christmas season special is the coming of Jesus…

Draw Near to GOD

ISAIAH 48:16 “Draw near to me, hear this: from the beginning I have not spoken in secret, from the time it came to be I have been there.” And now the Lord GOD has sent me, and his Spirit. Getting to know a person involves drawing near and listening. If we were honest with ourselves, we would admit we are not very good listeners. Some would rather keep talking, while others may get easily distracted and would want to do…

The Herald Who Proclaims Good News!

ISAIAH 52:7–10 7How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” 8The voice of your watchmen—they lift up their voice; together they sing for joy; for eye to eye they see the return of the LORD to Zion. 9Break forth together into singing, you waste places of Jerusalem, for the LORD has comforted his people; he…

Church in View of Christ’s Coming!

1 THESSALONIANS 5:5, 8, 11 5For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness… 8But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation… 11Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. One of the primary themes of 1 Thessalonians is Christ’s second coming.…

Suffering in View of Christ’s Coming!

1 THESSALONIANS 3:1–3 1Therefore when we could bear it no longer, we were willing to be left behind at Athens alone, 2and we sent Timothy, our brother and God’s coworker in the gospel of Christ, to establish and exhort you in your faith, 3that no one be moved by these afflictions. For you yourselves know that we are destined for this. Imagine losing contact with someone you love and not knowing how the person is doing. Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy…

Faith in View of Christ’s Coming!

1 THESSALONIANS 1:9–10 9For they themselves report concerning us the kind of reception we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come. Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy wrote a letter to encourage the young church in Thessalonica. This church-planting team had preached the gospel and planted a thriving…

A Charge to Obey

DEUTERONOMY 8:1 “The whole commandment that I command you today you shall be careful to do, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land that the LORD swore to give to your fathers.” In his last message to the Israelite nation in Deuteronomy 8, Moses addressed them before they entered the Promised Land. He reminded them that they had a covenant relationship with the Lord their God. This covenant or agreement, which God Himself initiated…

The Parable of the Weeds

MATTHEW 13:24 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field . . .” All of us have seen evil in the lives of people, in society, and in the world. We have also likely seen injustice take place, where evil is not punished or put in check. There is so much corruption in the lives of people and also in different spheres of society.…
