“if the Son makes you free”

July 4, 2015

Jesus said, “So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:36). Today our nation celebrates its freedom from foreign rule.  While I’m thankful for that freedom, I’m more thankful for my freedom from sin.  Many people gave their lives for our freedom as Americans, but only One could give His […]

“their heart is far from Me”

June 30, 2015

Quoting Isaiah, Jesus said, “This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me; in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.” (Matthew 15:7-9).  He spoke these words in response to the scribes and Pharisees condemning the disciples for not washing their hands when they eat […]

While speaking to Martha after her brother Lazarus’ death, Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.” (John 11:25-26a).

“I am the good shepherd”

June 23, 2015

Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.  He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.  He flees […]

“I am the door of the sheep”

Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.  All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.  I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.  The thief […]

“I am the light of the world”

June 19, 2015

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” (John 8:12; 9:5). Darkness represents the sinful/worldly way that stands in contrast to the way of Christ.  It is the way of death, while He is the way of […]

“without honor”

June 9, 2015

When people in Jesus’ hometown took offense at Him, He said, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and among his own relatives and in his own household.” (Mark 6:4).  The townspeople were too familiar with Jesus to accept Him as the Christ.  They knew Him as a carpenter and family member […]

“My mother and My brothers”

May 8, 2015

When someone told Jesus that His mother and brothers were outside seeking to speak to Him He said, “‘Who is My mother and who are My brothers?’  And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said, ‘Behold My mother and My brothers!  For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, […]

“something greater”

May 7, 2015

After mentioning “the sign of Jonah,” Jesus said, “The men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation at the judgment, and will condemn it because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.  The Queen of the South will rise up with this generation at the judgment […]

“Your will be done”

March 23, 2015

When Jesus taught the way to pray He said, “Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10).  While there is a specific way in which the kingdom has already been established (Col 1:13), the general meaning of “kingdom” is that of reign, rule, or dominion.  We need […]
