November 25, 1 Peter 2

Wednesday, November 25, 2015      0 comments

I know that I've written this before, it begins at verse 9 I like the KJV translation where it says a peculiar people. I am certainly a peculiar person but that's not exactly what it means. It's a chosen people, chosen by God. He chose me to ... Read more

Wrapping up the book of James he leaves us with three points of advice. Wealth cannot save anyone. Be patient and wait upon God, living at peace with our brothers. And pray for everything. I can't think of much that's more important than that... Read more

Here's the final chapter of Numbers and we leave of with two ideas. The first is that when God distributed the land to Israel He intended for the tribes to hold their portion for ever. In the event that a family only had daughters provisions w... Read more

November 20, James 4

Friday, November 20, 2015      3 comments

This is a chapter that I think should be read at least every month, it's basic principles for every day. Are you fighting with someone? Why? Almost always it's caused by some selfishness, maybe not you but perhaps the person who started it. ... Read more

November 19, James 3

Taming the tongue, what an impossible task to do. No matter who you are or how far you may come the tongue will eventually cause you trouble. Even when we may think we've gotten it under control something happens and it's again loosed. The pr... Read more

November 18, James 2

Wednesday, November 18, 2015      1 comments

This is how the world works, the well dressed, the apparent wealthy, the beautiful get preferred treatment, and it's wrong. Living in the world makes it easy to fall into these habits. It takes a conscious effort to not judge people by appeara... Read more

November 17, James 1

Tuesday, November 17, 2015      3 comments

It's the very first sentence of this chapter that has so much meaning yet most of us probably don't even notice it. James writes to the 12 tribes, obviously Israel in the dispersion. Consider what this means and what it accomplished. Several ... Read more

November 16, Hebrews 13

How does anyone who claims to be a Christian ignore verse 4, “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” Seems pretty straightforward to me. ... Read more

Sunday, November 15, 2015      2 comments

God established cities of refuge as a place for someone to go while waiting for a trial. Notice that they are only for a single crime, accidental death or involuntary manslaughter. Think about it, every other crime is premeditated, no-one acci... Read more

God in this chapter describes how the land should be divided to Israel. He sets the political and physical boundaries of what they are to inherit. There is a lot of land involved, one needs to find a good map to lay it all out. There is ... Read more

November 13, Hebrews 12

Friday, November 13, 2015      1 comments

The first item I am looking at here is that God disciplines His own. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say that God is disciplining them. I want to say 'no He's not, you were just a twit and now you're paying for it'. Of cours... Read more

November 12, Hebrews 11

Thursday, November 12, 2015      4 comments

Looking at faith today. The old King James translation of; 'Faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen', has always left me more confused than clear. Faith is one of those intangible things but it's really not that... Read more

November 11, Hebrews 10

Wednesday, November 11, 2015      2 comments

We have God's assurance through faith in an eternal life, but how do we keep that faith alive and vibrant? We're told in verse 25, don't neglect meeting together. I don't think this just means the Sunday morning worship (or whatever day you ma... Read more
