“divided against itself”

April 30, 2015

When responding to Pharisees who accused Him of casting out demons by the ruler of the demons, Jesus said, “Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand.” (Matthew 12:25-28). This general truth stated by Jesus applies in many areas, with the church being one of […]

“I will give you rest”

April 29, 2015

Jesus said, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30). Sin […]

“least in the kingdom”

April 28, 2015

When John’s messengers left Jesus, He told the crowds about how great John was: “I say to you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John;…”  Then Jesus said, “…yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”  (Matthew 11:11; Luke 7:28). Do you ever feel […]

April 27, 2015

When John sent his disciples to ask Jesus if He was “the One who is to come,” Jesus said, “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good […]

“Have you not read…?”

April 23, 2015

When the Pharisees criticized Jesus’ disciples for picking heads of grain and eating them on the Sabbath – a violation of their traditions but not the law of Moses – Jesus said, “Have you not read what David did when he became hungry, …?  Or have you not read in the Law, that on the […]

“built his house on the sand”

April 22, 2015

After speaking of building on the rock, Jesus said, “Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.  The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great […]

“built his house on the rock”

April 21, 2015

Jesus said, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been […]

“Not everyone…”

April 20, 2015

Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.  Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, […]

“by their fruits”

April 17, 2015

When speaking of false prophets, Jesus said, “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?  So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.  A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good […]

“Beware of false prophets”

April 16, 2015

Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets,…” (Matthew 7:15a). How prevalent are false prophets, and how many will they mislead?  “Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.” (24:11).  I’m a Christian, so I don’t need to be concerned about them, do I?  “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great […]
