Monday Advent 2 – Mark 2:23-3:6

ShareMark 2:23-3:6             Jesus Christ is the Wisdom of God incarnated.  Though we already know this, it’s good to have an illustration of it from the life and words of Jesus Himself.  And that is exactly what Jesus gives us today – a teaching on the meaning of wisdom. Biblically speaking, wisdom is knowing God […]

Friday of 1st Sunday after Trinity – Acts 10:24-33

ShareActs 10:24-33 I can tell today’s lesson in one word: “obedience.” Thank you very much.  Now we can all go back to our jobs in peace, having accomplished the world’s shortest Bible devotional. Eh?  What’s that?  Oh, there’s something more that should be said about this? In the grand scheme of things, Acts 10 is […]

Tuesday of the 3rd Sunday after the Epiphany – John 5:16-29

ShareJohn 5:16-29 Life and death hang in the balance in this passage. It seems odd, even bizarre to the point of belonging in a Ripley’s Believe it or Not Odditorium somewhere, that life and death would arise in such a way. In the beginning of John 5, Jesus heals a man who had had an […]

Thursday of the Sunday Next Before Advent – 2 Peter 2:10-22

Share2 Peter 2:10-22 We must be careful with the way we present the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I don’t just mean that we should avoid the errors of false teachers, which is obviously a critical task.  I also mean that we must take great care to present the entire gospel, in its full strength, and […]
