Hope in the Lord Jesus Christ

Glorify God forever

Matthew 28:1-10 (CSB) 1 After the Sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to view the tomb.

As the first day of the week was dawning…

There was a violent earthquake, because an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and approached the tomb. He rolled back the stone and was sitting on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards were so shaken by fear of him that they became like dead men.

The angel told the women, “Don’t be afraid, because I know you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. “He is not here. For he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. “Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has risen from the dead and indeed he is going ahead…

In the Cave of Adullam

MUSINGS and ROSES

I cry out to the Lord; I plead for the Lord’s mercy. I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles.

When I am overwhelmed, you alone know the way I should turn. Wherever I go, my enemies have set traps for me.

Then I pray to you, O Lord. I say, “You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭142:1-3, 5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The opening verse is a prayer David wrote while hiding out in a cave. DAVID had been through a lot. From defeating Goliath, the jealousy it attracted from the king, repeated attempts on his life and danger from the Philistines.

His struggles seem to have no end. He had nowhere to go and with a heavy heart, retreated to a cave called Adullam. Adullam means refuge. DAVID sought refuge. The challenges of life had forced him…

In our own homes: Let us look to Jesus – and be changed by Him.

Learning From God's Word

We compare ourselves to other people. We like to think that we’re doing pretty well. What, Lord, do You think about all of this? Are You impressed? You’re saying to us, “What about Jesus? How do you compare to Him? Help us, Lord, to look at Jesus – and see where we need to be changed. Help us to look to Him – and be changed by Him.

Lord, we’re always making choices. Sometimes, we make good choices. Sometimes, we make bad choices. Life can be very confusing. We wonder, “What’s for the best? What are we to do?” Show us Your way. Lead us in Your way. Give us the strength that we need to walk in Your way.

Lord, we’re being pulled in two different directions. You’re drawing us to Yourself. The world is pulling us away from You. Help us to confess our sin – we need…

Sent to every nation and gathered from every nation

"... Galilee of the Gentiles — the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” (Matthew 4:15-16). God's plan of salvation is reaching out beyond the nation of Israel. He's looking out to the other nations - the Gentiles. His light will shine …

Taking a look at the Old Testament: 1 and 2 Samuel

Learning From God's Word

“Appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have” (1 Samuel 8:5).

Why did the people of Israel want to have a king? – They wanted to be like “all the other nations.”

Why do they things that we do? Are we trying to impress other people?or Are we seeking to please God?

Again and again,we need to be reminded of the words of Romans 12:2 – “Do not conformto the pattern of this world,but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasingand perfect will.”

Lord, You’re calling us to leave behind the unfruitful life – and to choose the life of fruitful service.

1 Kings 7:13-8:13 Lord, You’re calling us to choose the life of fruitful service – “gold, silver, precious stones”. You’re calling us to leave behind the unfruitful life – “wood, hay, straw” (1 Corinthians 3:12-15). Help us to hear and answer Your call: “Rise up, O Church of God. Have done with lesser things. Give …

What a perfect atonement! What a perfect Saviour!

Leviticus 16:1-34 -  God is ‘holy‘. We cannot ‘draw near’ and ‘come’ to Him without a ‘sin offering’ (1-3).  We cannot bring ‘a sin offering’ to Him.  We can only bring our sin:  Our righteousness is ‘like filthy rags’ (Isaiah  64:6).  There is a ‘way’ for sinners to ‘draw near’ to God:  Christ is the …

Genesis 21:1-21 Lord, what You have done for us – we could never have done for ourselves! It’s so amazing what You have done for us. We were making plans for ourselves – but our plans didn’t include You! You came to us. You said to us, “I have a wonderful plan for your life.” …
