Jesus said; “You are the Light of the World”

Matthew 5:14  You are the light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.

Mathew 7:24 – 27 What’s Your Foundation?

The Wise and Foolish Builders  “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.

Jesus said: John 5:16 – 23

After Jesus heals the crippled man at the pool of Bethesda on a Sabbath day, the Jewish leaders hear of it and are angry with Him for “working” on the Sabbath.  The apostle John records their response and what Jesus said to them: John 5: 16 – 23 For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him,… (more…)

What Jesus said, can make a difference in the focus and purpose of our lives for 2012.

Jesus said.. John 2:15 – 21

All of us who read the Bible will recall how Jesus early in His ministry went up to Jerusalem and entered the Synagogue courts to find people there who were making a market place (profiteering) out of the house of God.  This was His response and what He said: John 2:15 – 21 When He had made a whip of… (more…)

Jesus said… Matthew 4:17

Many of us have seen a person or a cartoon of some wild eyed person standing on a street corner in ‘Metropolis’ USA wearing sandwich boards saying “Repent – Judgment is coming”. The gospel of Matthew records that Jesus preached a similar message with a big difference. After Jesus Christ’s experience in the dessert, Matthew records the beginning of Christ’s… (more…)

In the account of Jesus early ministry in Mathew 4 as we shared in last weeks posting, Satan was allowed to challenge Jesus while He was starving from 40 days of fasting.

Jesus Said… Mathew 4: 1-4

Mathew 4: 1 – 4 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It… (more…)

What Christ/mas Should Mean

What Christ/mas Should Mean As we approach the Christ/mas “season” I am personally taking another look at our introduction to the Lord Jesus Christ through the gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John. As we read these accounts of Christ each of them takes a slightly different approach to introducing Him to their readers, but each inspired gospel reveals the… (more…)
