Hebrews 3

On June 18, 2014 By

Thoughts based on Hebrews 3 To fully understand Hebrews 3 you have to use logic 101. Jesus > Moses. Moses = faithful servant over God’s house. Moses was humble, and he was true to the message God gave him about the things that were to be spoken about later. Yet God’s people not only rejected [...]

Hebrews 2

Thoughts based on Hebrews 2 Think about it for a second. If you were God (stay with me) and you had a choice to redeem either angels or humans, who would you pick? The Bible says that two thirds of all the angels in heaven were confronted by Satan’s temptations and schemes, but instead of [...]

Hebrews 1

On June 18, 2014 By

Thoughts based on Hebrews 1 Yesterday was Father’s Day (entry was originally written 6/16), a day to appreciate and celebrate Fathers for all they do for us. I guess it’s appropriate for us to consider today Son’s Day. It’s not such a silly idea if you think about what the writer of Hebrews is saying [...]

Morality and Grace

On June 11, 2014 By

Thoughts based on Titus 1 It seems to reason that the greater the sinner you are, the more you will come to appreciate God’s grace, but in reality it doesn’t work out that way…at least not consistently. If you have really blown it…I mean you really blew it, morally ethically and spiritually speaking…then you come [...]

On June 10, 2014 By

Thoughts based on 2 Timothy 3 Recently I got sick to my stomach and lost my appetite for little over a day. The loss of appetite made me think about how much time energy and money we spend eating. I’m not just talking about the actual time from the first bite to the last morsel [...]

Living for pleasure

On June 7, 2014 By

Thoughts based on 2 Timothy 2 Watch children carefully and you will see that those who want to please their parents the most are not kids who are afraid but kids who are assured. Fear may force you to toe the line, but affection leads you to go the extra mile. When you are really [...]

No Fear

On June 6, 2014 By

Thoughts based on 2 Timothy 1 Today is the seventieth anniversary of D Day, when allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy essentially marking the beginning of the end of one of the bloodiest wars in history…preventing Hitler-the most evil ruthless ruler in history-from conquering the world. The first wave of soldiers must have been [...]

Thoughts based on 1 Timothy 6 I recently heard very sad news from a member of our church about tragedy that hit a Christian family. A husband and father of 8 children took his own life. Because of the financial pressures he was under, he felt like he lost hope. Several years ago I counseled [...]

Thoughts based on 1 Timothy 4 It seems kind of odd that believers in the New Testament times were prone to follow deceitful demonic spirits promoting ascetic practices that forbade marriage, eating certain foods, abstinence from worldly pleasures, and other extreme practices that Paul calls silly myths. That is a temptation not many people in [...]

Thoughts based on 2 Thessalonians 3 Paul warns against idleness in this passage but if anything the struggle in modern times is not so much that we are too idle but that we can’t or simply won’t allow ourselves to be idle. When was the last time you had nothing to do and you weren’t [...]
