Feeling Our Infirmities I was reading the book of Hebrews the other day, and the Lord began to comfort me with a couple passages from the book of Hebrews.  It is easy to get frustrated with certain factors in our lives: we’re human.  We are flesh and blood, and we have limitations and temptations that […]

BEWARE, YE SIMPLE ONES John 1:14 states that “…the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…” Please do not make the mistake, as some have, of thinking that the word “flesh” in this verse carries the connotation of “carnal.” The Word was made flesh – but never carnal!

Two Trees When God created the the world, he “planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed” (Genesis 2:8).  In the center of this garden grew two trees: the Tree of Life, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.  Often we talk more about […]

TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS Scripture does not divulge who the happy winner of Jesus’ garment was at Golgotha. We may only speculate as to what became of this prize that was obtained by the casting of lots. Who afterward wore it? What became of it? Again, we may only speculate. However, this we do […]

I am Barabbas When we look at the crucifixion of Jesus, and the trial that led up to it, we see that Pilate did not really want to condemn Jesus. When the mob brought the Jesus to the governor, Pilate questioned Jesus. “And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers […]
