Thank God and Take Courage This was the last leg of Paul’s journey to Rome.  What happened seems small but it was important.  He thanked God and took courage.  What a thanksgiving thought for us! Acts 28: 11 And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and...
The Savior Who is Thankful for You We usually consider thanksgiving as God’s blessings to us.  Of course, we should.  Before we ever thought of being thankful, he was thankful for us. Luke 10:21-24 21: In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things...
This God is Our God David is speaking about the uniqueness of Zion.  It is the political and spiritual capital of Israel.  Originally called Salem, God made this town the focal point of the old world.  The empires of the world wanted Jerusalem and Israel, yet it was promised to Abraham years ago.  In the mountains outside...

Paul’s Answer for Himself Acts 24: 10 Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself: 11 Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went...
Wee Little People With A Big, Big Problem I encourage all to come to Jesus to see who we are without him and who we are with him.  Consider the miracle that took place in Jericho on this day.  Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem for the last time.  This man took his last chance to come to Jesus; he was glad he did.  The same Jesus is ready...
Coming Out of Your Closet II Timothy 1: 6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me...
The Rank of Our Savior We can trust Jesus.  He is called Captain in both the Old and New Testaments.  Every title for Jesus is a reflection of who he is.  In ancient history we read of the pre-incarnate Jesus on this earth.  Joshua led Israel over Jordon and was near Jericho.  The walls of the city were manned by the...
Three Measures The kingdom of heaven is compared to a loaf of bread.  At first one might think Jesus is insulting the kingdom, but he’s the King and from his lips the words came.  He gives us a clear picture of how he has planned it all out. Matthew 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven...
The Good Shepherd John 10: 14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one...
