The Son of Man

Have you ever noticed in reading through any of the gospel accounts of the life of Jesus the way that He made reference to Himself? According to “The New Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible”, Jesus called Himself “the Son of Man” approximately 80 times throughout the four gospels. Granted, there are many parallel accounts so one quote is often referenced by more than one of the gospel writers, but the point is it seems that Jesus consistently, repeatedly, & unashamedly chose to use the title of “the Son of Man” when speaking about Himself. How curious! Oh, it’s...

Our world is full of disasters – famines, fires, floods, fighting – all bringing destruction and death. Would you “hold up” under such pressure?

Be Still and Know

“Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10) Have you ever meditated on this verse? The first four words are both a command and an invitation inextricably linked to the declaration made in the last half of the verse, for it is impossible to be still unless one has an intimate, personal relationship with the One who has eternal, unchanging existence. Indeed the message, the command of the world is the opposite – to go, to do, to be busy, to be focused on self and not know God. Satan does everything he can to keep a non-believer and...

Called by God’s Name

By Lynn Metier There are numerous Scriptural references to being called by God’s name. The prophet Jeremiah claimed: “I have been called by Thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” (Jeremiah 15:16b) What does it mean to be called by the name of the LORD? While the Hebrew name Jeremiah comes from 2 words which can be translated “Yahweh will be exalted”, surely the Old Testament prophet must have known that to be called by God’s name had more profound implications than just in the translation of his name. And what about today’s “Christians”? Have we looked past the...

God Calling

Recently we noted that God called to Adam, when he was hiding in the garden, to ask: “Where are you?” A study through the New Testament reveals that God continues to call out to mankind for many reasons and purposes. In Matthew 2:15, the Old Testament prophet Hosea is quoted as saying: “Out of Egypt did I call My Son.” (Hosea 11:1) Just as God the Father called Jesus out of Egypt, so He continues to call today to those who would be His children to come out of the world; but, as Jesus later stated: “many are called,...

  • For Adulterers Only … A Call Home
    How would you react if you found your spouse lying with another man or woman? What emotions would arise? Anger? Hurt? Bitterness? I’m sure that just the thought of this happening enrages you. Did you ever stop to think about adultery of another kind – spiritual adultery? James (4:4) wrote: “Ye adulterers and adulteresses! Know […]
  • “Neither Know We What To Do, But Our Eyes Are Upon Thee”
    This passage is found at the end of 2 Chronicles 20:12. More than we would like to admit, these words are very familiar to us in our daily walks: “Lord, we just don’t know what to do.” Unclear direction from the Lord never means a lack of fellowship with the Lord. In this chapter, Jehoshaphat […]
  • True Love
    The Song of Solomon is one of the books of the Bible that is often overlooked. Its pointed love theme nearly causes one to blush. Sadly, it may sound like “the way it used to be” with us. This, like all other Scripture, is God inspired for the same reasons any other book is written. […]
  • Enduring Is Not Enjoying
    Although we know that our faith in Christ is an objective, not a subjective feeling, we often find ourselves (or at least I do) mistaking our feelings as an indication of having inferior faith. There’s this little voice inside that conveys a message to my brain (a false message, I might add!) that when I […]
