Rejoicing in the Lord

Rejoicing in the Lord Text: Philippians 3:1-3 Have you ever had someone try to encourage you, but instead you felt they were being condescending? That’s one of the difficulties we face in trying to encourage those going through trials when we ourselves are not going through them. And yet, it’s what we expect. We expect those going through the trial to be encouraged, not…

Christ Evangelizing the Woman of Samaria

Christ Evangelizing the Woman of Samaria Text: John 4:1-15 Why was the Lord compelled to travel through Samaria at this time? He is on his was to Galilee, heading north. The Jews had a particular route to get to Galilee from Judea by avoiding Samaria, such was the bitter hatred between the Jews and the Samaritans. 

The language of v4 shows a pressing need, and I think…

Our Duty to the Servants of Christ

Our Duty to the Servants of Christ Text: Philippians 2:28-30 There’s something magnetic about sacrificial people. About those who very clearly live for a cause greater than themselves. Men like David Livingston, the Christian Explorer and Missionary to Africa. Or William Carrey the “father of modern missions” who went to India and spent 41 years out there until he died.…

The Superiority of Christ’s Life

The Superiority of Christ’s Life Text: John 3:31-36 As we said last week, the key verse in this section from v22-36 is v30. This passage is an important one. Since every Christian is saved to serve in some way, John exemplifies the spirit in which that should be done. As Christ’s public recognition increases, John’s is decreasing, which was vital if men were to…

A Young Man to Emulate

A Young Man to Emulate Text: Philippians 2:19-24 After a number of verses that give us the principles for living, Paul now gives us a model to follow. And models are helpful. Seeing something is much more helpful than just reading about it. It’s why YouTube is now the first destination for most people wanting to know how to do something. It’s one thing to read how to…

The Divine Perspective of Salvation

The Divine Perspective of Salvation Text: John 3:16-21 Jesus is giving an explanation to Nicodemus about true salvation. We need to listen to these words with Jewish ears. Nicodemus was a master at keeping all the Pharisaical rules. He had mastered the regulation of his life to the point that he was elevated as an example to all. He was ruler in Israel. But Jesus drops…

The Only Antidote for the Venom of Sin

The Only Antidote for the Venom of Sin Text: John 3:14-15, Num 21:4-9 Once again we turn to this remarkable passage, where Jesus gives perhaps the greatest one-to-one exposition of salvation. Adding to the profound content of the subject matter, is the context in which it was given; that it was delivered to one of the most religious men on the face of the earth. An…
