We Are Called To Be Good Stewards Of God’s Gracious Gifts

Matthew, in chapters 24-25, records the Lord’s heart of compassion and love mingled with unwavering holiness. This section of Scripture, including the Parable of the Talents, constitutes final warnings, prophecies, and encouragements to His people Israel prior to His departure.

God’s Guiding Principle

What is God’s guiding principle? What is the word that sums up the life and teachings of Jesus and his apostles? How can we make God’s guiding principle our very own? When a Pharisee, an expert in the law, tested Jesus with a question: “Teacher, which commandment is the greatest in the Law?” Jesus declared, … Continue reading

God’s Vineyard And Its Tenants

Did Christ claim to be the cornerstone of God’s kingdom? Does the kingdom of God belong strictly to a particular race or people? What does God expect of the people of His kingdom?

In Matthew’s gospel, Peter asked Jesus: “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not just seven times, but seventy-seven times!” Next, Jesus narrated the parable of The Unforgiving Servant (Matt 18:21-35).

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

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
