Colossians 3:24b (ESV)

But He replied to them, “My mother and My brothers are those who hear and do the word of God.”

Thursday, Jan 17 – Man, do we need Christ…

James 2:10 (HCSB)

When you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed in Him, you were also sealed with the promised Holy Spirit. He is the down payment of our inheritance, for the redemption of the possession, to the praise of His glory.

Tuesday, Jan 15 – What we are to owe…

Romans 13:8 (HCSB)
Do not owe anyone anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

and He will stand on the dust at last.
Even after my skin has been destroyed,
yet I will see God in my flesh.

Sunday, Jan 13 – Do you tremble or do you avoid endorsing evil?

Isaiah 33:14-15 (HCSB)
The sinners in Zion are afraid;
trembling seizes the ungodly:
“Who among us can dwell with a consuming fire?
Who among us can dwell with ever-burning flames?”
The one who lives righteously
and speaks rightly,
who refuses gain from extortion,
whose hand never takes a bribe,
who stops his ears from listening to murderous plots
and shuts his eyes to avoid endorsing evil…

Saturday, Jan 12 – Paul’s explanation to King Agrippa, as to what led to the riot in the temple complex, exemplifies our duty as evangelists…

Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.

Thursday, Jan 10 – The Israelites were told that not everything is for them to know. Even though we have more revealed to us today (because we have the full cannon of scripture and the risen Lord where they did not), this principle still stands for us as well, regarding what God has still kept hidden. Therefore, we must forgo the temptation to guess where we are not in the know…

The hidden things belong to the Lord our God, but the revealed things belong to us and our children forever, so that we may follow all the words of this law.
