DFBS 350 – Jesus Christ teaches us words of life

It is not enough to “seek” Jesus. Our motives must be right, and we must seek the higher things that Jesus is able to provide. From time to time, Jesus will provide “loaves and fishes,” but He desires to help us with problems much greater than physical hunger.

Becoming Real (December 12)

The time will come when the best of the good ideas that we’ve had will come true. We’ll find ourselves not merely thinking about God but knowing Him. And in God, what we’ve always wanted to be is what we actually will be!

Much More Than Whitewash (December 11)

God will not be misled. He is not looking for verbiage but for hearts willing to be transformed. And if our hearts are not willing to be turned toward Him, then no amount of “image management” will get us where we want to go.

The Dawn Is Breaking (December 12)

My heart aches with an emptiness that nearly kills me. But this I know: the rightful King is reigning, and one day every bit of this darkness will be sent back to the hell from whence it came. Dark night once had me in its grip, but it has me no more. The dawn is breaking.

We can only imagine what it must have been like to live in Eden, prior to the pain. We live in a broken world, but we yearn for one that isn’t. To put it plainly: we suffer. But our suffering is not meaningless. A “birth” is coming.

Love (December 11)

In Creole country, there is a beautiful proverb which says, “Tell me whom you love, and I’ll tell you who you are.” Today, and every day, let’s meditate on those whom we love — let’s resolve to love them more purely, strongly, tenderly . . . and lovingly!

December 2018

The “Daily Family Bible Studies” were begun many years ago, and various congregations that I have worked with have gotten bits and pieces, but now the whole project is complete, and I am excited about the number of people who will be able to use it for many years to come.

November 2018

I am glad to announce that just a few weeks ago I passed the 1/3 mark in the number of pages written for the new book “Obeying the Gospel.” As of today, I have finished 131 (36%) of the 366 total pages in the book, and I hope to finish the rest of the writing in 2019.
