Joshua at the Feet of Jesus

Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”  “Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?” The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals,…

Daily: Worship

I will exalt you, my God the King;     I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you     and extol your name for ever and ever.

Daily: Encouragement

Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.  But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.  Hebrews 3:12-13 (ESV) See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so…

Daily: Witness

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.  “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same…

Truly Happy

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn,    for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek,    for they will inherit the earth.Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,    for they will be filled.Blessed are the merciful,    for they will be shown mercy.Blessed are the pure in heart,    for they will see God.Blessed are the peacemakers,    for they will be called children of God.Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,    for theirs is the kingdom of…

A True Reality

 I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord.  I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows.  And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows—  was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one…

Daily: Prayer

pray continually 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NIV) And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. John 14:13-14 (NIV) And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Ephesians 6:18 )NIV)

Passing on the Faith

My people, hear my teaching;    listen to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth with a parable;    I will utter hidden things, things from of old— things we have heard and known,    things our ancestors have told us. We will not hide them from their descendants;    we will tell the next generationthe praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,    his power, and the wonders he has done. He decreed statutes for Jacob    and established the law in Israel,which he commanded our ancestors    to teach their children, so the next generation would know them,    even the children…

Daily: Meditation

Though rulers sit together and slander me,    your servant will meditate on your decrees. Psalm 119:23 (NIV) Cause me to understand the way of your precepts,    that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds. Psalm 119:27 (NIV) I reach out for your commands, which I love,    that I may meditate on your decrees.

Our Submission

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place    and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,    in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,    to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11 2:9-11 (NIV
Ten Looks At Jesus

The Ascension

He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”  When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed…

Bless Your Enemy

This passage follows the teaching of Jesus in the same pattern i.e. things we have heard from the law vs. his teaching, which reaches to the heart of the matter. This principle applies to 3 categories of our enemies and what it means to love them. Our goal is not to love our enemies for anything good in return. But it is with the realization that we need the same mercy from God as much as our enemies do. “You…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Resurrection

On the resurrection day, the ladies who followed Jesus rushed to the tomb to finish the burial that was done hastily on the day of the crucifixion. They were filled with sorrow and grief. But they were surprised with joy when the angel said to them Jesus has risen. Nothing can explain how the stone rolled away, nor how he was able to pass the Roman soldiers who were guarding the tomb, except that He was risen and He was…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Triumphal Entry

Today we look at Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. In the Book of Isaiah 50:7, the prophet described the suffering Messiah as setting his face like flint. It was an expression of Jesus’ unwavering determination to suffer and die for us. Join us as we learn about 3 characteristics of Jesus from this event. We can also be sure that this humble and suffering Messiah will be coming again as a victorious King to whom every knee will bow. As…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Garden Prayer

Gethsemane is about prayer. Why did Jesus pray? What did he pray? And how did God answer His prayer? We learned that God answered “No” to one prayer and “Yes” to another prayer from Jesus on the same night. Because of Jesus’ incredible love for us, he fully drank the cup of the wrath of God so that we would see the glory of God and be with Him in heaven one day. Jesus went out as usual to the…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Transfiguration

In this passage, we read about His transfiguration. This event illustrates 2 points: Who is Jesus and Why did He come into the world? For a brief moment in time, His inner circle disciples witnessed the glory of God shine through Jesus’ humanity. Moses and Elijah were present as a picture that Jesus was the fulfillment of the law and the prophecy. He must suffer for the sin of the people. The Lord of glory would die for those he…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Temptations

Today we look at a passage of scripture that talks about Jesus’ temptations. Were the temptations of Jesus easier than the ones we experience because he did not struggle with sin? What areas were Jesus tempted and how did he respond? How can we overcome temptations based on the examples given to us by Jesus? Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Baptism

Baptism is a symbol of repentance for sinners. So why did Jesus have to be baptized when he was sinless? He did so to identify with us sinners. His baptism was also the fulfillment of the prophecy that pointed to the crucifixion. Jesus set examples for us to follow in baptism, in prayer, and in being filled with the Holy Spirit. If he who was sinless recognized the need for such spiritual discipline, how much more do we need to…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Childhood

This is the only passage in the scripture that focuses on Jesus’ childhood. When Jesus was 12 years old he went with his parents to Jerusalem for the festival of the Passover. Jesus said he must be in his Father’s House. Though this is a statement we hear often, at that time, it was a shocking statement for someone to claim that God was his father. Jesus knew firmly who he was and made a bold statement. He knew himself…
