Changed By Overflowing Grace

I Timothy 1:14 — “And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.” Paul went from blaspheming the name of Jesus to believing in the name of Jesus. He went from hating the followers of Jesus to loving them. How did this happen? It was because he…

He Loved His Bride

Genesis 23 — Abraham lived for many years in the land of Canaan as a nomad. He moved from place to place with his household and his flocks. When Sarah died he decided to purchase some land in which to bury her. This land would become his family’s ancestral burial ground. The local lord of the…

Not In Harmony With Jesus

Luke 9:51-56 — “But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” As Jesus made His way to Jerusalem there was a Samaritan village that refused to receive Him. In response to…

A Wonderful Example

I Timothy 1:12-13 — “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious…” The elders in the church at Ephesus had lost their focus on the Gospel. They’d become enamoured with other subjects that were not…

The Purpose Of The Incarnation

Hebrews 2:14-15 — “He also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death…” As we continue our verse-by-verse study through the Book of Hebrews, we think about what the writer means when he says that Jesus “partook of flesh and blood.”  We also think…

That Ugly Sectarian Spirit

Luke 9:49-50 — “Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.” The disciples had tried to stop a man from doing ministry in Jesus’ name because he was not part of their group. Jesus rebuked the disciples and went on to tell them how they ought to think…

Healthy Teaching & The Gospel

I Timothy 1:10b-11 — “…And if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.” How should we think about the moral Law given in the Old Testament and the teaching of the Apostles? How do we judge if the…

Dealing With Difficulties

Exodus 14:1-14 — After delivering the Children of Israel from slavery in Egypt, the LORD led them into what appeared to be an impossible position. They were surrounded by the elite forces of Egypt with nowhere to go. As we think about this story, the prelude to crossing the Red Sea, we learn about dealing…

Greatness

Luke 9:46-48 — “Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me…for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.” The disciples were arguing over which one of them should be the greatest in the Messianic Kingdom. Their idea of greatness was shaped by the world around them and by…

Trusting The Saviour

Hebrews 2:12-13 — “…I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. And again, I will put my trust in him.” In this lesson we think about how the writer quotes Psalm 22 in these verses. We go back to the Psalm and see the Messiah’s suffering and…
