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.

                                                                 (bound by Satan, evil, refusing the truth, or lack of repentance)

Isaiah: Setting Things Right

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

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 ...

Our Lord Jesus Christ Is Greater Than Any Enemy

In this final excerpt from my Bible study, 2 Timothy: Winning the Victory, I want to share with you the go-get’-em, no-holds-barred, let’s-overcome-the-obstacles-and-do-what-God-has-for-us passage. This paragraph comes from the final chapter, and compares our spiritual enemies, who may seem overwhelmingly strong at times, to our God who has almighty power.  

“No matter how fierce the enemy seems—when fear cripples us, anger enrages us, or selfishness possesses us; when adversity crushes us, opposition hounds us, or temptation plagues us—God is greater. In our own strength, we may be no match for the spiritual forces fighting against us, but those forces are ...

Peace, Be Still

“Lord, don’t You care?” The disciples woke Jesus up. A storm had engulfed them on the Sea of Galilee. Waves beat hard on them, filling the boat. They were going to sink. “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” (Mark 4:38 NKJV). In the midst of the raging storm, the disciples were afraid they were going to die, and there Jesus was, sleeping. He got up and commanded the wind, “’Peace, be still!’” (Mark 4:39 NKJV). The wind ceased. Jesus turned to the disciples, and asked them, “’Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?’” (Mark 4:40 NKJV). Faith in Jesus would have given them security in the storm. ...

Glory to God in the Highest

I wanted to say something. On Christmas Eve, I played an angel with some of my friends in our church’s live nativity. The three of us angels greeted Mary and Joseph when they arrived in Bethlehem, circled around them as with God’s love and protection, and stood in reverent joy celebrating Jesus’ birth.

We saw the shepherds come to worship the tiny king. Then the wise men came and knelt before the manger, placing their crowns on the ground before him. All the while songs about Jesus’ birth, death, and resurrection played in the background. While we stood on stage, the pastor talked about the significance of the birth of Christ, His life, and His death for each of us. He closed our Christmas Eve communion service with this declaration—“Jesus is alive!”

No wonder the angels praised God the night Jesus was born. I bet they couldn’t help it. As I stood on stage, I wanted to sing or to proclaim—“Here He is!!” The angels had been anticipating the moment of Jesus’ birth for centuries.

Mary, Did You Know?

I still remember how to sing “Mary, Did You Know?”. Oh, I never sang the solo, but for years I sang the choral part and loved it. Dressed in Hebrew costumes, we held lit candles as we made our way through the sanctuary to the stage, and knelt in a semi-circle asking that timeless question—Did you know?

Mary, a godly girl, a willing maidservant, did you know what you held that first Christmas night? Did you know that you held the hope for every soul? The power that would crush all evil? The love that would show us the Father?

Did you know that you held in bodily form the God who parted the Red Sea, stopped the mouths of lions, and rained fire from heaven? Did you know that you cradled the Savior of the world? That you gave birth to the great I AM in human form? According to her song, I think she did (Luke 1:38, 46-55). Did she think of it in those terms? I’m not sure, but I imagine so. Do we?
