Good Words for Today: December 6

December 6, 2016

Too much knowledge can be a dangerous thing at Christmastime. If we think, “I’ve heard all this before,” we risk becoming like the scribes who knew just enough to miss the birth of Jesus altogether. The lowly shepherds ran to Bethlehem, and the Wise Men brought gifts. But the people who knew the Word the […]

Rahab: A Harlot in Jesus’ Family Tree

December 6, 2016

“Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab” (Matthew 1:5). Many first-time Bible readers are surprised to learn the New Testament begins with a genealogy (Matthew 1:1-16). They are even more surprised when Rahab shows up on the list. Most of us know about her. She is almost always mentioned in the Bible as […]

Good News for Today: December 5

December 5, 2016

Christmas teaches us the truth about human nature. We were in so much trouble that we needed a rescue mission from heaven. If there had been some other way to save us, Christ would not have come. Christmas proves the depth of our sin and the determination of God to do something about it.

Balaam: A Star from Jacob

December 5, 2016

Photo credit: Bible Pathway Adventures “A star will rise from Jacob; a scepter will emerge from Israel” (Numbers 24:17). Let’s begin with the one thing people know about Balaam. He had a talking donkey. You can read about it in Numbers 22:21-30 and 2 Peter 2:16. That by itself is amazing if you think about […]

Jacob: Messiah Will Come From Judah

December 4, 2016

Photo credit: SammyTippit.org “The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his” (Genesis 49:10). Here is a little lesson in biblical genealogy. God had promised Abraham all the world would be blessed through him. […]

Good Words for Today: December 4

December 4, 2016

Lord Jesus, we pray today for those who are struggling to know you. Pull back the curtains of unbelief so that they might be filled with faith to believe in you. Amen.

Immanuel: God With Us

December 3, 2016

“Peruvian Nativity: God Is With Us” by Marcia Carole “All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: ‘Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel’ (which means, God with us)” (Matthew 1:22-23). Immanuel. God with us. Jesus has come to earth, the Almighty has entered […]

Moses: A Lamb for the Family

December 3, 2016

“Tell the whole community of Israel, ‘In the tenth day of this month they each must take a lamb for themselves according to their families—a lamb for each household“ (Exodus 12:3). Either the lamb dies, or the firstborn of the family dies. The blood must be shed either way. Suppose you were an Israelite being […]

Good Words for Today: December 3

December 3, 2016

God uses suffering to teach us many lessons we couldn’t learn any other way. Three positive things happen when we go through hardship and difficulty—no matter what the cause: We slow down . . . and begin to think. We calm down . . . and begin to listen. We look up . . . […]

Abraham: He Saw My Day

December 2, 2016

“The Angel Prevents the Sacrifice of Isaac,” Rembrandt, 1636  “Your father Abraham rejoiced that he would see my day. He saw it and was glad” (John 8:56). There is more than one way to see something. We can see with our eyes, or we can see with the eyes of faith. That’s what happened to Abraham on Mount […]

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
