Victory

ISAIAH 62:11–12 11Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.” 12And they shall be called The Holy People, The Redeemed of the LORD; and you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken. In our study of Isaiah, we have seen that time and again God’s people failed to fulfill their part of the covenant.…

Restoration

ISAIAH 49:8 Thus says the LORD: “In a time of favor I have answered you; in a day of salvation I have helped you; I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, to establish the land, to apportion the desolate heritages . . .” As a result of sin and disobedience, God’s people were taken to Babylon in chains. Defeated, they found themselves in a new land with no place to worship their God. It…

Bought at a Price

GALATIANS 4:4,5 4But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. We were slaves of sin and were held captive under the law (Galatians 3:23). During Paul’s time, slaves were under the rulership of their masters. They could not do anything apart from what their master would say or allow. Sin was our…

Comfort

ISAIAH 40:1–3 1Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. 2Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins. 3A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” While God’s people had a long history of stubbornness and unfaithfulness, God has a long history of consistency…

The Servant Who Brings Light to the World!

ISAIAH 49:6 “It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to bring back the preserved of Israel; I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.” The world we live in is troubled and broken. This darkness is caused by sin. We can see sickness, hatred, and disaster everywhere. However, this is not God’s original design…

Serving in View of Christ’s Coming!

1 THESSALONIANS 2:11–12 11For you know how, like a father with his children, 12we exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory. Acts 17 gives us the account of how the church in Thessalonica was birthed. The gospel was preached, people responded, and persecution quickly followed, which led to Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy being separated from the new believers. This…

Fatherly Encouragement to Continue

2 TIMOTHY 1:8 “Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God…” Paul went through many hardships as he carried out his mission of preaching the gospel. This was causing people to abandon him and the mission. But relying on God as he went through these trials enabled him to impart valuable lessons to the next generation. He wrote this letter…

A Charge to Trust

DEUTERONOMY 8:18 “You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” For forty years, the Israelites depended completely on God for their survival. But as they were about to enter the land He had promised, Moses told them that God would give them the power to get wealth. They may or may not have…

The Parable of the Mustard Seed and the Parable of the Leaven

MATTHEW 13:31–33 31He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. 32It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” 33He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that…

Carrying Out the Great Commission

MATTHEW 28:18–20 18And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Jesus used kingdom language when He said that all authority in…
