Thursday of Passion Week: Preparation for Passover

In Mark 14:12, “on the first day of unleavened bread,” the disciples asked where Jesus wanted them to go prepare to eat the Passover meal. According Exodus 12, the Passover lamb was to be killed on Jewish date of Nissan 14 and eaten that evening which would have fallen on...

Is God Trying to Tell Us Something?

The Obedience of One

For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Rom. 5:19 I think possibly one of the devil’s most cunning tricks, is to make us think, “Nobody else is doing it; what difference does my obedience make?” Our...

Perfectly Joined Together

Belonging to the Body

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us,...

2019 Fast - Day Six - Giving to the Needy

We have seen in Acts 2:42 how the early church devoted their time to the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread together, and prayer. Usually when discussing the five purpose of the Church, we will drop down to verses 46-47 and add worship (which we will talk about later), but...

On A-Chord or With Accord?

The term ‘one accord’ is used 11 times in Acts and only once elsewhere in the New Testament in Philippians. I guess it would be safe to say that Luke was trying to make a point about the unity of the earlier believers and the movement of the Spirit from...

Remembering to Give God Thanks

And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up [their] voices, and said,...

My God-Assignment

What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe--as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters...
