When Death Comes, We are Not Ignorant. We are equipped to give encouragement.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18  Jesus’ resurrection is the sure foundation of our confidence that those who have “fallen asleep in him” will participate in the resurrection of the dead on the Last Day. The saints who are still living on earth will join the resurrected in a grand reunion with each other and an eternal communion …

Living Like There’s No Tomorrow

Matthew 25:31-46  Jesus will separate believers from unbelievers when he returns on the Last Day. Fruits of love for Christ can be seen in the compassion believers have for Christ’s brothers. Faithlessness is evidenced by the unbelievers’ willingness to let Christ’s brother linger in his misery.  31 “When the Son of Man comes in his …

Do You Past the Test of Faith?

2 Corinthians 13:5-8 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you–unless, of course, you fail the test? And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test. Now we pray to God that you will not do …

God, That’s Not Fair!

God’s kingdom comes to different people at different times. The reward is the same for all because it is a reward of grace, not personal accomplishment. Work in God’s kingdom, be it short or long, is the privilege of grace. Those who take issue with God’s grace will find themselves “last,” that is, outside of his grace. 

How can I Ever Forgive You?

It is impossible for an unforgiving person to live in fellowship with a God who has unconditionally forgiven him. Those who rejoice in the Master’s grace will “forgive from the heart and gladly do good” to those who sin against them.

JESUS GIVES YOU THE KEYS TO THE HEART

Gospel – Matthew 18:15-20  Since Jesus, the Good Shepherd, spared no pain to find the lost sheep, so Christ’s Church will diligently use God’s law and gospel to call the erring brother to repentance. The object is always to win the brother over. The church speaks with Christ’s full authority when it declares God’s judgment upon the impenitent sinner and pronounces full forgiveness to the penitent sinner.

The Construction of the Christian Church

Matthew 16: 21-26

From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life. Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!” Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.” Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?

Lord Help Us Understand your Mission

Isaiah 55: 8-11

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord . “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.  As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
