Prayers on the Cross

Today we will examine the three distinct prayers of Jesus, our Redeemer, while he suffered on the cross. As Lent 2021 begins and soon the observance of Easter what better prayers to look at than those of Jesus Christ, as we continue this series on prayer. After all, he is the Master, Teacher above allContinue reading “Prayers on the Cross”

Prayer in the Garden

I’m continuing with the study of prayer. Today we will join Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane to discover what we can learn. The account of Jesus in the Garden is recorded in three of the Gospels. It is found in Matthew 26:36-46; Mark 14:32-42; and Luke 22:39-46. Clichés generally have a nugget of truthContinue reading “Prayer in the Garden”

Go into Your Closet

Last week we looked at Jesus’ response to the disciple’s request, “Teach us to pray.” In this study, we will further investigate Jesus’ instructions about prayer. We will examine what he said at the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), just before presenting the prayer model–the Lord’s Prayer.

Teach Us To Pray

My previous post Divine Power touched on prayer as the means to tap into Heaven’s power and authority. In this writing, we will take a look at a well-known prayer from scripture, commonly referred to as the Lord’s prayer.

Divine Power

I have been tucking away notes, thoughts, scriptures, and questions about prayer for a few years. The intent was for use in creating a small group study. An incident occurred this week that brought that prayer focus to the forefront of my thoughts again.

Fighting Master Control

A few years ago, during a hot and humid summer, I was privileged to spend a few days away at a lovely high-end resort. I am a person who requires little to no air-conditioning, preferring to be a bit warm versus cold. Naturally, the resort had the rooms adequately cooled for the comfort level ofContinue reading “Fighting Master Control”

I have benefited from, Alan Kearns, a brother in Christ who authors Devotional Treasures. I’ve profited as he shares wisdom, knowledge, and insight to passages of scripture each day. If you are seeking a solid biblical supplement for your Bible study time, I highly recommend checking out his blog. Plus, he features stunning photography fromContinue reading “Make Haste”

Dominoes of Choice

When my brothers and I were young, we liked to stand dominoes on end all over the table or floor. Once satisfied with our long winding trail, we would knock the first domino down, with the gentle touch of our finger and watch all the remaining quickly fall in sequence. A thrill we would repeatContinue reading “Dominoes of Choice”

God is Good thus Life is Good

Recently, I found some notes from a study done years ago. I was encouraged to reread what had impacted me. Reviewing previous study notes, a sermon or a book is often a means to new understanding. We become a different person in Christ’s hands than we were previously. We followers of Christ are being sanctifiedContinue reading “God is Good thus Life is Good”

The Power of Words – part 4

I hope you readers have been enriched and gleaned something fresh as we investigated what the Bible has to say about words. With this being the final part of the series, let’s take a moment to recap. In part one we considered the purity of God and His word, in part two we uncovered theContinue reading “The Power of Words – part 4”
