  • Pressing Towards the Mark
  • A Seat at the Table

    We all want to belong and to be part of the group, but it is quite a different thing to have a seat at the table. In business, having a seat at the table means that you are a valued individual. It is a recognition that your voice is important, and you were chosen to participate as part of the group. In Mark 14 we read of an example, where Jesus sat down at the table for Passover with the twelve men he selected as the Apostles.

    Mark 14:12-16 - And on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when…

  • BIBLE AUTHORITY - 1

    "BY WHAT AUTHORITY ARE YOU DOING THESE THINGS?"
    (by Heath Rogers)

    "Now when He came into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people confronted Him as He was teaching, and said, ‘By what authority are You doing these things? And who gave You this authority?'" (Matt. 21:23).

    A study of authority in religious matters is very important. It lies at the center of everything we believe, teach, and practice as individual Christians and collectively as a local church. Every religious question is fundamentally a question of…

  • Look Unto Realms Above
    A principle that is important to the teaching process is stated clearly by John Milton Gregory in his book, The Seven Laws of Teaching. Gregory says: "Since attention follows interest, it is folly to attempt to gain attention without first stimulating interest."

    Remembering my high school days in study hall, I must agree with Gregory. I can recall 'reading' page after page in a book and being unable to remember a single idea from the book because my mind was on a basketball game to be played that night. The book didn't occupy my attention because I, at the…

  • Content in Exile

    As the people of Judah were led away to Babylon, the prophet Jeremiah told them to expect a lengthy stay — to build houses, plant crops, have children, and live productive lives (Jeremiah 29:1-7). And despite the hardships and heartaches of being in a strange land, most Jews adjusted quite well to life in Babylon. During their seventy years there they adopted Babylon’s lunar cal­endar and its language of Aramaic. They worked, engaged in commerce, and prospered, with some even rising to high positions in government, like Daniel or Mordecai. As Walter C. Kaiser observes,…

    WHY I NEED JESUS
    (Mike Willis)

    I am a man. I am not an emotional cripple. I am not in severe financial straits. I am not about to go through a divorce. I am not having trouble with my children. As a matter of fact, from every outward point of view, I seem to have things going pretty well for me. I have a good education. I have a beautiful family - a lovely wife and a boy and girl. We live in a nice house in a nice neighborhood. We drive reasonably…

  • These Things Were Written

    Psalms 2 speaks of the Lord’s Anointed One who will crush the foes of God with a “rod of iron… like a potter’s vessel” vs 9.  This sentiment is echoed in Revelation to the church in Thyatira where it says, “he will rule them with a rod of iron” Rev 2:27.

    We are also told the Lord’s chosen servant, Isaiah 42, is one who “will not cry aloud or lift up his voice… a bruised reed will he not break” vs 3.  Indeed, it seemed as Jesus lifted the faint hearted by healing them, the Pharisees created more and…

  • The Indwelling of the Spirit
    Few people would question the fact that the Holy Spirit in some way dwells within the Christian. Paul wrote to the saints in Corinth: "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you…" (I Cor. 6:19). He further wrote, "Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his" (Romans 8:9). There is considerable disagreement, however, as to how the Spirit dwells within a Christian. It is not our aim in this short article to deal with that issue, but we do want to suggest three…
