Twice to the churches of Asia Jesus said, “Remember…”  To the church at Ephesus He said, “Therefore remember from where you have fallen,…” (Revelation 2:5); and to the church at Sardis He said, “Remember what you have received and heard,…” (Revelation 3:3). The end of a year is often a time of reflection for some […]

“My grace is sufficient for you”

November 10, 2016

When Paul prayed for his “thorn in the flesh” to be taken away, Jesus said, “My grace is sufficient for you,…” (2 Corinthians 12:9). Do you feel that Jesus’ grace is sufficient for you?  Are you content with the rich blessings He adds to your life?  Like Paul you will have your own “thorns” throughout […]

Change to In His Word

June 13, 2016

It is hard to believe that I began In His Word over five years ago and posted it as a blog over four years ago.  At the beginning it summarized a daily Bible reading program, but the current focus on what “Jesus Said” does not necessarily require a daily post.  Some weeks it is difficult […]

“convict the world… concerning righteousness”

May 12, 2016

Jesus said of the Holy Spirit to the apostles, “And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; …concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me;” (John 16:8, 10). The Holy Spirit would convict the world of the righteousness of Jesus and His […]

“abide in My love”

May 3, 2016

Jesus said, “Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.” (John 15:9). “Abide in My love” – what better place to abide!  So how do we abide in His love?  “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My […]

“for this purpose I came”

February 12, 2016

Jesus said, “Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this purpose I came to this hour.” (John 12:27).  It troubled Jesus to think about the pain and agony He knew He was about to face.  The fleshly side of Him wanted to be […]

“the weightier matters”

February 3, 2016

Jesus said “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.” (Matthew 23:23). Was tithing not important under the Law of Moses?  […]

“Which of the two…?”

January 22, 2016

Jesus said, “But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go work today in the vineyard.’  And he answered, ‘I will not’; but afterward he regretted it and went.  The man came to the second and said the same thing; and he answered, ‘I […]

“Two men went… to pray”

December 17, 2015

Jesus said, “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.  The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.  I fast twice a week; I […]

“the things pleasing to Him”

September 10, 2015

Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me.  And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the […]
