Luke 23:34 – Forgiveness

What is forgiveness? When Jesus utters this phrase, what is he saying? In other words, what exactly is Jesus asking his father to do? And how does that apply to us? Some would say that because Jesus prayed for those who persecuted him to be forgiven, we should all forgive all offenses against us. Others have said that since God doesn’t forgive everyone, that means we don’t have to either. I’ll try to lead you to an answer to these questions as we develop thoughts surrounding forgiveness.

Leviticus 19:2 – Be Holy

Leviticus is not an easy book for many to read. It seems to confuse a lot of people. I recommend taking it slowly and understanding the context. Always keep in mind that the Old Testament is pointing forward to the cross and your understanding should increase.

1 Thessalonians 5:16 – Rejoice Evermore

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 16 Rejoice evermore, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 In every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Oh what joy it is to live in Christ! Right? Isn’t every moment simply an easy moment of bliss? Doesn’t Jesus heal all your sickness and provide […]

Mark 8:29

Mark 8:29 And he asked them, “but who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” Dear reader, this statement is amazing! It sounds quite ordinary, or even elementary to us today. It seems obvious. Of course, he is the Christ, right? Not so fast. I want to show you […]

1 Corinthians 15:3-4

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures 4 And that He was buried and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures. Folks, this is the gospel. This is the good news. […]

The Sovereignty of God in Salvation

This post might end up reading differently than you expected. I’m not going to go into an explanation of TULIP or new birth. There will be little or no exposition of scripture, just a story of Providence. Brothers and sisters, please pray for Maria. It’s July 27, 2010, I normally take the bus by 7:40 […]
