In our reading from 1 John 5 the apostle writes, “If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his Son.” (v9). What is John talking about here? When did God give a testimony about His Son?

John tells us “God is love” (1 John 4:8). It isn’t just that God does loving things; He actually is love. Love is what defines Him. John also tells us that God’s love is perfect (v17-18). That should be a very comforting thing, but we tend to have a problem believing it

It’s a good thing for us to reflect on the omnipotence of God because throughout history men and women have reduced God to the same level as man. The Greeks and Romans, for instance, invented gods who had the same lusts and pleasures as man likes to indulge in.

I enjoy doing the daily readings using several different versions. I find that it breaks me free from just rolling through the same verses year after year without thinking about it.  Sometimes the word or phrase selected makes me question its accuracy and sends me back to the concordance.

It’s very easy to get into a habitual daily routine and kind of live robotically and seldom seriously prepare for the day our Lord Jesus Christ will return to this earth. There’s a danger of getting into the mindset of the scoffers in 2 Peter 1, who say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep...

There’s a little word with a big meaning hidden away in the text of our reading today from 2 Peter 1. In verse 5 he writes, “For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue”. The word translated “supplement” is epichoregeo and it refers to a specific type of patron, or benefactor, in the Greek world called the choragus.

It’s so easy to read lists like the fruit of the spirit and think “those are some nice characteristics” and move on quickly. But there is real value in slowing down and carefully going through the lists and trying to figure out why each characteristic is listed. It’s not as if the apostles just grabbed a random assortment...

I have been doing a study on freedom so verse 16 from today’s reading in 1 Peter 2 caught my eye – “Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.” I find freedom to be a fascinating topic for several reasons. One of those is that people who think they are free very often are not.

Isaiah chapter 35 is one of the most beloved passages of Scripture for a lot of people. It’s a wonderful vision of the Kingdom and the amazing transformation that will take place across the globe. But before looking at some of the details let’s first look at the conclusion of the chapter which say...

About a week ago I was putting the finishing touches on my high school Sunday School class when I realized I had to put aside that lesson. Racial injustice was in the public eye, social media was flooded with views, and it was obvious I needed to talk to my class on the subject. What does the Bible say about racism?

Patience doesn’t come naturally to many of us, especially in this fast food world. We are used to instant gratification and waiting for something can make us grumble. In our reading from James 5 we have a section on patience where he exhorts us to wait patiently for the coming of the Lord.

James is the Greek form of the name Jacob and he seems to have his namesake in mind when he writes his epistle. He writes “To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion” (James 1:1). When Jacob fled into Syria it was a foreshadowing of that dispersion...
