Bible Outlines for Reading, Teaching, or Discussion Groups

Matthew Chapter 12

The book of Matthew has some of my favorite application. Chapter 12 helps us to understand Jesus’ ministry to us today.

Matthew Ch.12  Don’t be blind to, or bound from, the greatness of Jesus’ ministry.
                                             (blinded by legalism or Satan)
                                                                 (bound by Satan, evil, refusing the truth, or lack of repentance)

________________________________________

v.1-13    Don’t be so legalistic, that you can’t be directed by Jesus to do good,
                    to be kind and helpful, to heal, to rescue, and to restore as whole.

v.14-21  Jesus’ ministry is greater than ...

Application, Application!!

When I started studying the Bible, I loved reading it. My problem was remembering what I had read, particularly a day or two later. So I started writing down statements to remind myself of what Scripture says about what God wants us to do and to know—“application.”

I had a statement for each paragraph, chapter, and book. Since I was particularly interested in ...

The Complete Picture

            It’s not difficult to take in the complete picture of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Mona Lisa. The portrait is only about thirty inches tall by eighteen inches wide.1 It was hanging behind bullet-proof glass when my family and I saw it in the Louvre in Paris. What’s difficult is figuring out the expression on her face. What did the artist have in mind? Was he hoping to intrigue us with ...

Love is Christ’s Driving Force

 In 2010, my family and I attended the International Christian Retail Show, where Christian book publishers … promote their new products to retailers. As writers, we wanted to see how the book promotion process worked.

Giant posters decorated the halls of the convention center like murals. One of them promoted The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Aslan the lion with his golden mane and piercing eyes dominated the center of the poster. His face ...

Isaiah: Setting Things Right

Holiness Is a Transformation of the Heart

            True holiness has roots that reach down deeper than what we say and do. It reaches into our hearts—the treasure house of who we are, how we’re wired, and what we value. Holiness warms, enriches, and enlivens the heart with Godliness. It prompts us to think differently, to see more clearly ...

The Morning after the Storm

            Ominous clouds slowly cover the earth. Everything becomes darker, bleaker. An eerie gray is the forewarning of an impending storm. At first the wind gently ruffles the tree branches, but then it steadily grows in force and speed until the trees bend almost to the breaking point. The rain that began with ...

Jesus—the Heart’s Delight   (Isaiah 4:2)

            Jesus is beautiful, glorious, excellent, and appealing to those who take hold of Him by faith. Great good awaits those who turn to Him. Jesus sustains us through the storms of life and furnishes us with hope until they are over. He calms our anxieties with His peace. He drives away fear with His comforting presence. He resolves our helplessness with His strength and power. He soothes our guilt and regret with forgiveness. He warms our hearts with His unending love. Jesus is our ...

“Destination?”

God’s word is full of useful information that is up-to-date and relevant to our lives today. That information helps us to know what our options are in life. It shows us how to navigate our lives along the paths that take us to such pleasing “destinations” as a satisfied heart, meaningful relationships, and ...

On the Other Side of Confusion, Distress, and Regret

            How does it feel to be swept up in the consequences of sin? Sometimes it’s our sin; sometimes we’re caught in the fallout of someone else’s sin. A careless word, a wrong decision, an unguarded moment, or a detrimental pattern of life ushers in a season of heaviness, sorrow, or struggle. What does it feel like to reap the consequences of harm, wrong, injury, or foolishness? Most of us know.

            The consequences of sin trouble us in various forms. A fog of confusion creeps over us that is cold and unsettling. We don’t want this situation, but we can’t see how to fix it. We think ...
