Voicing Our Persuasion Let’s look at incidents in the life of Peter. They boil down to his persuasion. Proverbs 25:14 Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain. Proverbs 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. So what do these verses have to do with Simon...
Thy Savior, the Mighty One Isaiah 50:2 Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water, and...
Witnesses and Partakers Peter wrote this not too long before he was to be executed. He uses terms unique to his writings. He calls believers something that is pertinent to us today. As long as we’re on earth, there will be suffering in general and suffering for Christ. Peter calls us witnesses and partakers. Addressing the...

Just The Truth Sometimes we think of the small books in the Bible having a small message. They feed us just as much. In these 13 verses of Second John we get an important picture. This is one of John’s last books. He was almost 100 years old when he wrote it. Shortly after writing Third John, he was exiled to Patmos...
The Value of Praying and Serving the Lord Two questions were asked dealing with the value of praying to and serving the Lord.  There is a connection between the two. Job 21: 14 Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. 15 What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should...
Our Report Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? 12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin...
Do We Or Don’t We? God’s question in this lesson is a tough one for us.  It tells us about the spiritual condition of Israel at the time but has a tremendous application for us. II Kings 17: 24 And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and...
