December 31, 2015

Jesus said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them.  It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave;” (Matthew 20:25-27 […]

“What do you want Me to do for you?”

December 30, 2015

Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?”  He asked this question on two occasions in Mark 10, first to James and John (:36) and then to “a blind beggar named Bartimaeus” (:51). Think for a moment how you would respond if Jesus asked you a question like this!  You may ask […]

When the disciples asked who could be saved, Jesus said, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:25-26; Mark 10:26-27; Luke 18:26-27). How blessed we are to serve a God who makes the impossible possible! Have a great day in His word!

“hard for a rich man”

“One thing you lack”

“Let the little children come to Me”

When questioned about divorce Jesus said, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?  So then, they are no longer […]
