The “big reveal” of the Kingdom of Heaven and how Jesus’ followers would live in this world is presented by Jesus in Matthew 5-7. Those men knew the old Jewish religion from birth but this new way of life is so completely different that they had no idea what Christ Jesus is talking about. After this foundational talk The Lord had to reveal more pieces of truth step by step over the three years of his ministry so they could digest this radical new way of living. Remember this teaching was for ...

The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.

The hope God has given you, don't let anyone take it from you. Keep it secretly in your heart, protect it from skeptics, from pessimists, nourish it with your dreams, until the day it is revealed. Fall in love with God first and He will give you the perfect person for you at the most opportune time. Christian love manifests itself in patience to cover faults and ignore offenses....

Whether you realize it or not, the audience is a reflection of us onstage. When you’re performing or leading worship and you look out at the people, what do you see? Are they fully present with you? Are they singing their hearts out? Or does there seem to be a disconnect somewhere? ...

I wonder how many of us professional musicians mislead our audience. We are either intentionally leading them or maybe unintentionally misleading them. I remember one night – back before I was old enough to join our church youth group – my church hosted a concert by a local band that was friends of our family.  My dad was down on the main floor running lights and had designated one of the older youth members to run the spotlight from up in the balcony. At one point during the show, the lead gu...

This post isn't about the Washington, DC-based Museum of the Bible. Instead, it’s about the interesting journey of The Bible Museum and how it grew up to become a popular name worldwide from its modest start. It all began without any plan, but by God’s grace, it grew so big that people from far and wide now come to the online site as well as the physical store to browse and buy ancient and rare Bibles and Bible leaves. Since 1987, The Bible Museum has been the largest dealer of antique and ra...

According to recent statistics, Christians are the largest religious group, with a whopping 2.3 billion believers or a noticeable 31.2% of the global population of 7.3 billion. Christians have always deemed the era of Jesus and his disciples a standard for all the other ages. This belief powered the church’s faith in Jesus - the Messiah, who was resurrected. This faith also drove the anticipation of forgiveness of sins through Jesus. But have you ever wondered how the history of the Christian ch...

Today we got the rest of our stuff - the stuff we wanted, anyway - out of the house we sold last week. It's been a journey, for many reasons that I won't go into here. But the last few months have been especially rough, only made easier by the fact that our buyer is a man with a kind heart and a helpful spirit. There's no doubt in my mind that God orchestrated the process from beginning to end. A friend of mind has been living in the house almost since we moved out in 2015 to live in our ...

Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. For, “Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay; but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” ...

For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.

Part 2: Narrow Way of Discipleship: Holy Spirit Life  (Matthew 5:6-11) In THE NARROW WAY TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD, we looked at the brand new revelation of Christ’s way of salvation and eternal life. And the exciting thing is we who have been blessed with repentance do not have to wait until we die to receive our reward! Remember in Matthew 5:5 the Lord promised the meek “shall inherit the earth.” This is a Jewish way of saying that great blessings are for the here and now, not just in heaven...

If you've ever heard of Mormonism and have had missionaries knocking on your doors telling you it's the same thing as Christianity do not believe them. Mormonism is fundamentally different than Christianity and follows another gospel, another God, and another Christ. I will explain why below. First of all it is important to understand what Mormonism is and the basics of what they teach. Mormonism began in the 19th Century from the founder Joseph Smith who Mormons consider to be a prophet. Mormo...

Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from th...

For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. ~ 2Corinthians 4:17-18 LINK to Christmas Songs page; new songs added daily! ...

The English King James Bible is the best selling book in history, by an extremely wide margin. With multiple billions of copies in print, no other book can claim even one billion copies in print. Even more impressive, the King James Bible remains one of the most popular translations of the Bible today, in spite of being in an archaic dialect of English that is well over four centuries old. There is simply no more beloved, influential, or widely read book in the world. King James Bible, KJV Bi...

 And he said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. ~ Luke 24:25-27   What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not als...

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 1John 1:5-7 LINK to Christmas Songs page; new songs added daily! ...

Being sick this week I didn't even turn my computer on for several days, let alone post anything. So for anyone who has been following along here is what you missed...ALSO, I have stopped using the Crosswalk site. I hadn't been getting much out of it, it wasn't as "meaty" as I was looking for and even seemed trite at times, and I love the other site so much that I appreciate being able to spend more time and thought with that one. So here are the readings for the days that I didn't post them. ...
