Therefore…! (Matthew 7:24-29)

One Master is Enough! (Matthew 6:24,33-34)

The Lord Our God Saves Us in Love and Cares for Us by the Ministry of His Gospel The holy Triune God “shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners,” ungodly and at enmity with Him, “Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8). The incarnate Son has justified us by His blood…

The Holy Spirit Working! (Acts 2:1-4)

The Risen Lord Jesus Pours Out the Holy Spirit The Lord took “some of the Spirit” that was on Moses “and put it on the seventy elders” of Israel (Num. 11:25), and they “prophesied in the camp” (Num. 11:26). In the same way, our risen Lord Jesus poured out His Holy Spirit at the Feast…

Cornerstone to Living Stone! (1 Peter 2:4-10)

The Lord Jesus Christ Is the Way, the Truth and the Life The risen Lord Jesus alone is “the way, and the truth, and the life,” and we come “to the Father” only through Him (John 14:6). God is thus “glorified in the Son,” and those who believe in Him will do the works of…

I Am the Door! (John 10:7-9)

The Crucified and Risen Lord Jesus Christ Is Our Good Shepherd Although we “were straying like sheep,” the Lord Jesus Christ has willingly suffered and died for us, bearing our sins “in his body on the tree” (1 Peter 2:24–25). We are healed by His wounds (1 Peter 2:24), and in His resurrection He gathers…

Honour God with Your Life! (1 Peter 1:17-21)

God Be With You (Matthew 28:16-20)

The Wounds of Christ Give Us Life “For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood” (1 John 5:7). These three point to Christ and flow from Christ.
