Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 4 May 2020

Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.  1 Peter 1:21 (NIV). Last time we talked about what the world would be like without Jesus.   All we can assume is that it would be bleak, much different from what we know today (evenContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 4 May 2020”

Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 13 April 2020

These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.  1 Peter 1:7 (NIV). When is Jesus revealed? It’s the day after Easter; the first Monday of a new era, of a post-resurrection era. Continue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 13 April 2020”

Practical Proverbial, from Philippians, 12 December 2019

Convinced of this, I know that I will remain, and I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, so that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me. Philippians 1:25-26. (EHV). Paul never undersold his talents.   Indeed, here in Philippians (andContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Philippians, 12 December 2019”

Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 14 November 2017

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.  Hebrews 13, verse 8. You know it’s true:  you might as well just say “amen” now (which actually means “this is most certainly true”).   Verse 8 is one of the foundation verses of the entire Bible.   It’s the explanation, motivation, and reason for everything.   There’sContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 14 November 2017”

Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 23 October 2017

See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven?  Hebrews 12, verse 25. Now.   Because eternity matters most, the time is now to talk about it,Continue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 23 October 2017”

Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 7 March 2017

For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another. But God found fault with the people and said:  “The days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah.  It willContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 7 March 2017”

Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 7 October 2016

Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.  Hebrews 2, verse 11. Think about this one.   I mean really, truly, slowly contemplate the idea being stated by this Bible verse. You’re like Jesus. Jesus is likeContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Hebrews, 7 October 2016”
