Living with Jesus, the good shepherd of Psalm 23, is living peacefully, meaningfully, together, and forever.Peace can only come by knowing Christ, and all other forms of peace are hollow. You will never find the green pastures and still waters unless Christ the Good Shepherd leads you there, and you are his sheep. Jesus paid the price to save us fr…
 
Sin is the barrier that cuts us off from the goodness of God. It is a sickness that ultimately leads to the pit. Through Christ’s death and resurrection we are rescued from sin, the brokenness of the world, death, and hell.The rescue of the cross pulls us out of the depths and sets us on the shoulders of our Heavenly Father, crowned with faithful l…
 
Guilt over sin is God’s kindness to us, reminding us that we have done something wrong and we need to do something to rectify that. Guilt over sin reminds us that our nature is sinful, naturally rebellious toward God. Our sinful nature is not easily fixed. Guilt over sin reminds us that our sinful nature still wars within us. When we act in sin we …
 
How do you pray when you’re in the dark night of the soul and God is silent?Heman was suffering physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. No one was around to comfort him; Darkness, his only friend. Heman knew the source and solution of his pain and suffering was God. Ultimately, Psalm 88 is a monologue where God is distant and silent. Th…
 
God speaks through the cosmos, the law, and Christ.The stars testify to his glory and all creation reveals his wonder and nature. His voice is also in his command, as perfect and true as he is, revealing his holy nature. The law brings joy and wisdom, refreshing the soul. Though we come to God by faith, the law guides us in the way that we ought to…
 
In Psalm 8 we see that God is big and good. He is the maker of heaven, earth, and everything in between. He carefully set the stars in their rightful place, making each of them unique and knowing them all by name.In the vastness of creation, God is certainly big and we are small (yet significant). He made us to rule over His creation as His represe…
 
Life is not the way it should be. Even when ‘Normal’ comes, life will still be riddled with isolation, fear, death, and injustice. Now, amidst COVID which threatens to take our physical breath away, we must take the time to breathe spiritually.Psalm 1 shows us two ways to live: in wickedness soon to be blown away like chaff, or in righteousness lik…
 
The Corinthians were divisive over many things: leaders, the spiritual gifts, tradition, and the concept of the resurrection. Yet, as Paul ends this letter, we are reminded how the work of the Lord comes through even in the mundane details of our lives, and that Christians have one job. Our one job is to make Jesus known. That Jesus died to win the…
 
We attempt to make a heaven out of earth, but earth could never be heaven. There is sickness and suffering in our perishable bodies, but the resurrection of our bodies will be glorious and victorious.Now, our bodies are perishable and decaying in dishonour, then they will be imperishable and raised in honour. We will be remade in the image of Chris…
 
Greek Philosophy, where the body is inferior to the soul and a resurrected body is foolishness, had taken over Corinth. So begins Paul’s 'if the dead are not raised' speech where, had Christ not been raised, all is vanity: our preaching, our faith, and our very lives. We are left, under Adam, spiritually dead in sin, under the judgement (wrath) of …
 
The Resurrection is foundational, historical, and transformational. Corinth had made their religion and reputation their foundation because they were the best church of its time. They knew the scriptures, they have seen and performed signs and wonders. Paul reminded them the foundations of the Gospel to remind them that the resurrection is the prim…
 
The nature of God is peace, not disorder, so what is the church for, and how is it to be ordered?The church is one body under Christ, and spiritual gifts are given to us for the edification of the church. Yet, there are rules and structures for using tongues and prophecy in the church. Tongues require interpretation, and only one speaker and interp…
 
Are tongues and prophecy still valid today? How do we know when tongues should be used, or if a prophecy is truly from God?We should desire the spiritual gifts which God gives freely to his people for the edification of the church, and we should use them in love. We should also desire the higher gifts (tongues and prophecy) as they are good gifts f…
