Rejection of Christ

In this passage we see rejection and resistance based primarily on jealousy and fear. What damns the soul is an unwillingness to give up what a person is, to embrace Jesus Christ. Matthew 14:1-12 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard about the fame of Jesus, and he said to his servants, “This is John the…

Hard Pressed but not Crushed

2 Corinthians 4:1-18 Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who…

And the virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” But she was greatly troubled at the…

He shall be called…….. ‘Prince of Peace’

Romans 5:1-21 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope…
