CHRIST APPOINTS SEVENTY

“He who hears you hears Me, he who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.” Luke 10:16 We all enjoy the manner in which the Lord Jesus chose the twelve disciples.

GOD’S MEGAPHONE

“Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.” 1 Peter 1:10-11 In this day of “magic”Continue reading “GOD’S MEGAPHONE”

FORGIVENESS

“Then Peter came to Him and said, ‘Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?’” Matthew 18:21 A more gratuitous word cannot be heard, unless it has been repeated seventy times seven.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST?

“Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:1-2 It is fun to ask that question of one who you know doesContinue reading “HOW DO YOU HANDLE THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST?”

DEATH

“Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.’” John 3:3 That word brings back all types of memories for a preacher, from the first funeral of the youngest person, or the suicides, or the teenagers, or that of your closest friends… evenContinue reading “DEATH”
