Bible Knowledge Test

To whom was Jesus talking when He said, “The Kingdom of Heaven is within you.”? (Luke 17) (Some translations render the statement, “among you.”) Clearly, then, the Kingdom and the Church are not the same thing. […]

Your Inheritance

Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children. And walk in love, as the Messiah also loved us and gave Himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God. But sexual immorality and any impurity or greed should not even be heard of among you, as is proper for saints. And coarse and […]


God is our refuge and strength,a helper who is always foundin times of trouble. Therefore we will not be afraid,though the earth tremblesand the mountains toppleinto the depths of the seas,though its waters roar and foamand the mountains quake with its turmoil. (Psalm 46:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible ©®) […]

Being Righteous

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.   (2 Corinthians 5:21 English Standard Version ©®) Not taking responsibility for the power and authority and righteousness that are parts of our identities when we become born again and then […]

Neat Stacks

Professional theologians would have us believe that paradigm is the proper way to perceive spirituality and the rest of life as the spirit is manifest in the earthly place: this is right, and that is wrong. Either this or that, then is the choice. I am convinced that Jesus prefers a paradox: this is right, […]

Women in Ministry

We should really be something between surprised and perplexed by the fact that one of the times Jesus spent the night praying, He called his disciples around Him and called 12 of them “apostles.” “Disciples” makes sense. Some of His followers were in deep relationships with Him. Some were intent on being obedient to His […]

Potentially Powerful

James wrote that faith without works is dead (James 2:26). Paul wrote that in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision accomplishes anything; what matters is faith working through love (Galatians 5:6). Potential in a battery is power that is latent. It could produce work, but not unless it is connected properly in a circuit with […]

Shared Victories

What is your typical response when your good works are rewarded with evil consequences? Sometimes it seems when that happened to individuals whose lives are recorded in the Book, that the justice they received was not an immediate vindication. In the lives of Joseph and of the 3 friends of Daniel: Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah (who […]


Suppose that you had no New Testament Scriptures. How would that affect your ability to share the Good News? What difference would it make in your daily devotions? What Scriptures would you have quoted on your refrigerator? What Scriptures were the Bereans reading as they first checked to see if what Paul and Silas were saying were true, […]
