Before and After (John 21:15-22)

Peter failed miserably the night before Jesus’ crucifixion. He had denied the Lord three times. There was no time to make amends. Jesus was dead, and the disciples were in total disarray. Then Jesus rose from the dead. And how Jesus dealt with Peter’s failure is an encouragement to us all.

Who is Jesus to You? (John 12:12-19)

When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey that first Palm Sunday, there were many ideas among the crowd as to who He really was. Most were looking for a political leader and deliverer from Roman tyranny. Others wondered how He could alter their personal lives for the better. A relative few saw Him as One who had a more heavenly mission.

Have No Fear (2 Timothy 1:6-7)

The spread of the coronavirus is generating a lot of fear. Others claim that it is just a huge conspiracy. How should Christians respond? For that matter, how should we respond in any crisis? God has equipped believers to handle anything that comes our way.

Strangers and Aliens (2 Peter 2:11-12)

Christians shouldn’t look like everybody else. Our lives should demonstrate Christ, not the world. But as we lead a life that pleases Christ, we demonstrate His love for us and for others.

Church is Not About You (Hebrews 10:24-25)

The church has often fallen into the modern trap of consumerism. Many attend wanting to know what’s in it for them. But the weekly gathering together of believers has a much different purpose. We are to see it as a time to encourage one another. And between the meetings, we need to make sure we’re connected and connecting.

How to Drink (John 7:37)

If you want to have a full life in Christ, you must really thirst for His living water. You need to come to Him wanting to be filled. And when you are filled, He expects that water to flow back out from you.
