  • Genuine Love

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on May 7, 2020
    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,078 views

    Another song of agape love.

    GENUINE LOVE. Romans 12:9-13. In Greek, the first clause of Romans 12:9 has no verb, so could literally be rendered “love without hypocrisy” or “love unfeigned”. From this, I have taken ‘Genuine Love’ as a title for this section. The second clause talks about evil and good, forming a kind of ...read more

  • Christian Reactions

    How to overcome evil with good.

    CHRISTIAN REACTIONS. Romans 12:14-21. Romans 12:14. The positive imperative is to “bless” those who persecute us. This is similar to the teaching of Jesus (Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:27-28). The supreme example is that of Jesus Himself (1 Peter 2:21-23). This partly involved Jesus praying for His ...read more

  • A Song Of Loves

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Oct 21, 2018
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,340 views

    Both Psalms 45:6-7 and Hebrews 1:8-9 address Jesus as God, yet distinguish Jesus from God.

    A SONG OF LOVES. Psalms 45:1-2; Psalms 45:6-9. The mysterious word in the title of this Psalm, ‘Shoshannim’, may refer to a six-stringed instrument, or to the scattering of roses or lilies around the nuptial bed: what we might call confetti today. The word ‘Maschil’ may be a musical ...read more

  • Humility And The Wedding Banquet.

    Contributed by Gordon Mcculloch on Sep 1, 2013
     | 2,356 views

    Humility is not what you think, humility is power, strength, energy and life; but to receive it, you must submit yourself to God; you must acknowledge that he is king, and you are subjected to him.

    Prayer: Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable to you O Lord. Amen. Introduction: There is a country and western song which I love called “Lord, it is hard to be humble, when you are perfect in ever way”. I think the words are so funny because for ...read more

  • Who Do You Look Down Upon, Who Are The Dogs In Your Life?

    Contributed by Gordon Mcculloch on Jan 20, 2014
     | 3,026 views

    This is a very disturbing story where a woman, at her wits end, was actually ignored by Jesus, who favoured the Jews. Why? God ticks Jesus off here. Did Jesus sin here? It certainly needs investigation.

    Genesis 45:1-15 Psalm 133 Romans 11:1-2a, 29-32 Matthew 15: 10-28 Summary: This is a very disturbing story where a woman, at her wits end, was actually ignored by Jesus, who favoured the Jews. Why? God ticks Jesus off here. Did Jesus sin here? It certainly needs ...read more

    Timeless teaching from Jesus as to the true nature and source of sin.

    THE INS AND OUTS OF ‘RELIGIOUS’ PURITY. Mark 7:1-23. Every branch of society has its own traditions: some good, some bad, and some inconsequential. It doesn’t matter whether it is the pomp and ceremony of monarchy, or the ritual ‘pardon’ of a turkey at Thanksgiving. Some traditions are ...read more

    based on 5 ratings
     | 3,879 views

    This seemingly random selection of exhortations follows on from Hebrews 12:29, and represents our part in the refining process which God is working in our lives (cf. Ephesians 4:1).

    OUR PART IN THE REFINING PROCESS. Hebrews 13:1-8; Hebrews 13:15-16. I. PRACTICAL LOVE (Hebrews 13:1-3). 1. “Brotherly love” (Hebrews 13:1).

    We have left a God-shape hole in our lives and try to fill it with other things.

    A PLEADING. Jeremiah 2:4-13. In this passage the LORD yet again makes His complaint against the whole house of Israel (Jeremiah 2:4). As we read it, we begin to realise that this is also His indictment against the whole of mankind, and against the visible Church in particular. “What ...read more

    based on 4 ratings
     | 4,156 views

    Pleading the blood of Jesus.

    AN ANSWER TO THE ACCUSER. Psalm 26. One of the names for the devil is, ‘the accuser of the brethren’ (Revelation 12:10). That is his job: ‘your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour’ (1 Peter 5:8). Take the case of Joshua the high priest: ‘standing ...read more
