A Friend In Need Is a Friend Indeed

Is God only a fair-weather friend to us? Is He there for us in our times of need? Do we have the courage to take the leap of faith when He commands us? Let us look for our own answers as we meditate on Matthew’s gospel: “22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the … Continue reading

The One Thing All Christians Need

Do you feel that religion is absolutely necessary for you? Do you find that you need it at all times and in all things? Is it in your estimation of supreme importance? In Luke’s gospel, Jesus told Martha: “you are worried and upset about many things. But only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen … Continue reading

God Desires Mercy, Not Sacrifice

“1 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick the heads of grain and eat them. 2 When the Pharisees saw this, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath.” 3 Jesus replied, “Have you not read … Continue reading

Shepherd of the Harassed and Helpless

It is written in Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 9, verses 36 to 38: “36 When He saw the crowds, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then He said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. 38 Ask the … Continue reading

Grace Reigns through Righteousness to Bring Eternal Life through Christ

When the Apostle Paul said: “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8), was he implying that we were not to be always sinners? Did Christ die to save us in our sins or from our sins? It is a good practice for authors to sum up their ideas at the end … Continue reading

It is frequently called the “golden text” of Scripture, and is often found in evangelistic leaflets. However, this great passage has been interpreted in so many … Continue reading

The Joy Of Abiding In Christ’s Love

What is “fullness of joy”? In what sense is our joy full? What does fullness mean? How can we experience “fullness of joy”? In the concluding verses of the great parable of the Vine and the branches Jesus said: “9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. … Continue reading

Encouragement to Be Faithful

We encourage our children to study hard to get into a good school. We encourage our family and friends to exercise and eat a balanced diet to stay healthy. We encourage our colleagues and teammates to work closely together to get things done. But how often do we encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ … Continue reading

Christian Perfection

I find Matthew 5:38-48 the most difficult part of the Sermon on the Mount to understand and obey. How can we not resist an evil person? How can we love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us? Is Jesus asking for the impossible? How can we ever be perfect? The old law directed … Continue reading

Divine Instructions for Service

What can we learn from Christ’s instructions to the twelve apostles (cf. Matt. 10:5-15)? What did Christ appoint them to do? What kinds of services they were told to perform? To whom they must apply themselves? How they ought to behave themselves? In Matthew 10:5-15 we have the instructions that Christ gave to his disciples, … Continue reading
