Praying for Our Inheritance

In Ephesians 1:17-18 Paul continues his prayer for believers by asking God to give them knowledge of the "riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints." The meaning of this is twofold: 1) We are God's beloved and valued inheritance (Malachi 3:16-17). 2) God bestows upon us the inheritance of Himself and of His many promises (Matthew 25:34, John…read more

Knowing God Better

Our greatest need and privilege is to know God (Jeremiah 9:23-24). Paul prays for the believers, asking the Father of glory to give them the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God. This knowledge is more than knowing facts or even understanding deep doctrinal truths. It is a relationship with the true, living God, growing in close fellowship with Him as the Holy Spirit gives us insight through the Scriptures.

Who We Pray For

Paul prays that God's glory will be advanced, and he also prays for the spiritual well-being of believers, including himself. Let us pray earnestly, humbly, fervently, and frequently. Pray that we will know God better and be empowered to follow Him in righteousness.

Present in Spirit

Let us be a church on mission together for the glory of God, present together in spirit while physically separated. A church on mission prays and provides care and encouragement. It edifies and exhorts one another to practice integrity even while alone.

The Savior Who Triumphs

Philippians 3:20-4:1 declares that our citizenship is in heaven. This is a grace-based promise, not a merit-based wishful thinking. We eagerly await the return of our risen Lord and Savior. At Christ’s return, He will transform our lowly bodies, by His divine power, to be like His glorified body. Therefore, let us stand firm in the Lord.

The Shepherd Who Provides

Jesus is the Good Shepherd who voluntarily lays down his life for the sheep. This same shepherd provides for us by gathering us together and knowing us personally. He leads us through His word and keeps us safe and secure Him.

Fear Not

Isaiah 41:10 provides promises and commands in a time of fear and uncertainty. We are told not to fear or be dismayed. Then we are given the many reasons why the holy, righteous, victorious, almighty God is worthy of our trust. Let us declare: I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4 (ESV)

The Transfiguration of Jesus

During the transfiguration of Jesus, God speaks from the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” Because Jesus is the the majestic King or Glory, it is utterly necessary for us to listen to His words as revealed in Scripture. The disciples saw the glory of Christ, and His divine majesty and excellence should also motivate us to heed and serve Him in humility.

Jesus Heals a Blind Man at Bethsaida

Jesus ministers to the blind man at Bethsaida in a very individual way, showing his compassion and deep awareness of our needs. In a spiritual sense, we are all living in darkness, blinded by sin. Our eyes need to be opened in order to see our true selves and to see Jesus and His saving work on the cross.

Jesus Feeds the Four Thousand

When Jesus miraculously fed over 4000 people with 7 loaves and a few fish, He demonstrated deep, personal compassion. Jesus proved Himself to be the almighty Son of God and the promised Messiah. Look to Christ and His total sufficiency for whatever you face. Only Christ can abundantly satisfy and is worthy of our trust and praise.

Jealous is God's Name

man jealousy can be damaging and sinful, but the jealousy of God is a holy, passionate zeal to guard the exclusiveness of our relationship to Him. God is provoked to jealousy when we make any person, possession, or giftedness the first focus of our love, trust, and service. We are to worship the almighty, worthy, true God over all else.
