The Good News of Jesus Christ

What is your FOUNDATION?

Matthew 7:24-29 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:  and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell.

What God Wants

It might not be what you think...

Psalm 51:15-17
Oh Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth your praise.  For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it: you do not delight in burnt offering.  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart – these, Oh God, You will not despise.
 

The Heart of the Matter is a Matter of the Heart

A Bible Passage From Matthew Chapter Five

 
In this blog, I would like to look with you at the Bible and show you that God cares not only about our external actions, but also about our internal thoughts and motives.
 
Matthew 5:21-22
Jesus said…
“You have heard that is was said to those of old, ‘you shall not murder: and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’  But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council: and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.”

Read the Bible verse of the week

 
 
 
Today, I would like to share with you a very family portion of the Bible and briefly describe a detail that you might have missed.  The portion of Scripture is found in Mark chapter 15; it is describing the death of Christ.

Bible Verses of the Week

Who is your master?

 
 
 
Matthew 6:24
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.  You cannot serve God and money.
 
In the Bible passage, Jesus clearly tells us that we can only have 1 God in our lives.  God doesn’t want a rival with our time, our emotions, our desires, our energy, and our focus. 
We cannot serve God and table tennis
We cannot serve God and our job
We cannot serve God and our stuff
 

Our Example to Follow

Bible Verses of the Week

 
Christ is the ultimate example of true humility.  He humbled himself to being willing to die a criminal's death on the cross to pay for my sin.
 
Philippians 2:3-11

The Good News of Jesus Christ - Part 12

The Gospel of Jesus Christ
Watch this video!!!

This morning, I was meditating on the fact that the Bible says that God justifies the ungodly.  Many people think that they can earn their way to heaven by being good, by not committing any felonies, or by being a good husband or a good wife or a good father or a good mother.  They think that surely God will see their good deeds and be satisfied.

The Good News of Jesus Christ - Part 9

Read some of my Christmas reflections...

As I reflect on Christmas, I think back 2000 years ago to Jesus, who was born humbly in Bethlehem.  Before the birth of Jesus, there were over 100 prophecies in the Old Testament telling about his coming.  All of these prophecies were 100% fulfilled in Jesus.  Below, I would like to share with you some Old Testament prophecies that told about the coming messiah and share with you some New Testament Bible passages on how Jesus was the fulfillment of those prophecies.
 
 
PROPHECY
