Real Power

Posted 03-28-2019 at 10:19 AM by snowduck

1 Corinthians 4:20 - For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. - We all like to have power and usually the more the better, but what kind of power we want and our motivations are what interests God. It doesn't always seem like it, and sometimes they even suffer for their faith, but those who know Jesus Christ have real power. As God says in 2 Corinthians 12:9 - ...my power is made perfect in weakness... This may not sound right to us, and not how we would do it but is the way...

Illustrations

Posted 02-28-2019 at 10:07 AM by snowduck

Isaiah 1:18 - ...“Though your sins are like scarlet,they shall be as white as snow;... - A fresh blanket of snow is the whitest thing I can think of, it has long been a symbol of purity and cleanliness. And in old testament times scarlet was popular because it was one of the firmest of dyes not easily washed out. God uses these two illustrations to tell us about our sin and what he will do about it. This scripture is clearly a prophecy about the coming savior Jesus Christ revealed to Isaiah about...

Do It Yourself?

Posted 01-25-2019 at 07:31 AM by snowduck

Galatians 2:21 - I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing! - At the time this scripture was written Jewish religious leaders were (and still are) telling their followers that they had to obey the old testament law in order to be saved. The old testament law is a set of "rules" on how to live given to the Jews by God in the old testament. Most everyone knows the Jewish religious leaders have always rejected Christ...

A New Beginning

Posted 01-03-2019 at 10:14 AM by snowduck

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) - Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! - A new year is often viewed as a new beginning, and we can think of ourselves as having a new beginning if we have come to Christ. The Apostle Paul wrote 2 Corinthians about 55 a.d. probably when he was in Macedonia, and in 5:17 notice that Paul says "has come," "has gone" and "is here," he never uses the words "might come," might be...

Gone Fishing

Posted 09-05-2018 at 09:08 AM by snowduck

Matthew 4:19 -“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” - When Christ picked out his disciples he chose a few who were fisherman, and made a simple analogy about them. He told them that they would be sent out to fish for people. That was a good analogy because that is basically what the people who spread the gospel do. When someone is "caught" by Christ it simply means that they accept him as their only lord and savior and will obey his commands. Christ...
