Not One Lost

Not One Lost 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish. Matthew 18:10 At the end of the parable of the lost sheep we have this verse. God’s will is that not even one human should be lost. Unfortunately we know that […]

Your Angel

Your Angel 10 “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 18:10 There are verses in the Bible that seem simple yet say so much. This is one of those verses. On […]

Temple Tax

Temple Tax 24 When they had come to Capernaum, those who received the temple tax came to Peter and said, “Does your Teacher not pay the temple tax?” Matthew 17:24 There are a few stories in the Bible that are rarely used. Others are almost always told as a children’s story. This is one of those stories. The temple tax collectors […]

Opposites

Opposites 24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:24-25 We serve such an interesting God. He seems to relish […]

Who Am I

Who Am I 13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” Matthew 16:13 What an interesting question and one that is vital today in our day. As Christians, and especially as Adventists, we have a need to preach Jesus […]

Leaven

Leaven 5 Now when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. 6 Then Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.” Matthew 16:5-6 Jesus can really make you scratch your head sometimes. While his disciples were worried about the physical absence of real bread, Jesus […]

A Boat

A Boat 16 Now when evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, 17 got into the boat, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was already dark, and Jesus had not come to them. John 6:16-17 When we read this same story in another gospel we see that it was Jesus himself that said […]

A Dispute

A Dispute 25 Then there arose a dispute between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purification. 26 And they came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified—behold, He is baptizing, and all are coming to Him!” John 3:25-26 John 3 is usually quoted for v.16, but there […]

Wrestling in Prayer

Wrestling in Prayer Be merciful to me, O God, for man would swallow me up; Fighting all day he oppresses me. My enemies would hound me all day, For there are many who fight against me, O Most High. Psalm 56:1-2 Everyone at some point in their life makes this type of prayer to God. […]

See Life

See Life 36 He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36 It’s amazing how much emphasis the Bible puts on your belief. If you simply believe in the Son, Jesus, you can have eternal […]
