    The darkness in this world spreads, but the light of Christ shines. And it illumines us and radiates through us to the world.

    I want to draw your attention again to the beginning of this passage, where it say, “When he had gone out…” (John 13:31). Who is John talking about here? Who is it that has just “gone out”? It’s Judas, isn’t it? If you rewind a few verses in this thirteenth chapter of John, you see that Jesus is ...read more

  • Receiving Treasure In Heaven

    Contributed by Isaac Butterworth on Apr 5, 2022
     | 297 views

    Our treasure on earth eclipses our desire for "treasure in heaven." Only God can give us a desire for "treasure in heaven." Therefore, we must forsake our treasure on earth and follow Jesus to receive "treasure in heaven."

    You will notice how this passage begins. We are told that Jesus ‘was setting out on his journey’ (v. 17). And we know where that journey will lead. It will take Jesus to Jerusalem, where a cross awaits Him. He has already foretold His death twice in recent days, and He will speak of it again—in ...read more

    There are at least four core commitments for Christian living. The first is abiding in the Word.

    A FEW YEARS BACK, when I was still serving as pastor at another church, we had two visitors show up at our church, a father and his son. These guys are from British Columbia in Canada, and they were on a road trip through the southern states. They are both men of God, and there was no question in ...read more

    IMPRISONMENT OF CHRISTIANS IN CHINA is on the upswing. One report says there has been a drastic increase of assaults on Christians over the last year. That’s China, but that’s not the only place it’s happening. You can probably guess the other countries that are among the most hazardous for ...read more

     | 326 views

    There are at least four core commitments for Christian living: (1) abide in the Word, (2) pray your heart out, (3) be killing sin, and (4) give your life away.

    Our lives tell a story—a story about who we are and what we value, where we’ve come from and where we’re going, what we want and what we’ll do to get it. And what most of us do is, we make “the story” of our lives about us. But God makes “the story” of our lives about Christ. Someone has said, ...read more

  • Effectual Fervent Prayer

    Contributed by Isaac Butterworth on Apr 5, 2022
     | 657 views

    Our prayers are often ineffective. Scripture reveals principles of effective prayer, principles we will want to observe.

    A movie by the title of The In-Laws came out in 1979. There was a re-make of it in 2003, but my favorite version is still the original one. It featured Alan Arkin as a conventional dentist and Peter Falk as a manic character who claims to be a government agent. Their kids are about to be married, ...read more

     | 231 views

    People don't always know that the life they want is in Jesus.

    Two sailboats slice through the waves of a vast sea. Both are seeking the shore. The crew of one vessel turns against the wind, thinking to find harbor in that direction. But, unknown to them, they are headed for a life-threatening storm, and their little craft will not survive. The crew of the ...read more

  • Standing Firm In The Truth

    Contributed by Isaac Butterworth on Apr 5, 2022
     | 531 views

    The "mystery of lawlessness is already at work," but God had revealed the truth to His people, the truth in which we must "stand firm."

    God’s people in Thessalonica were confused. Someone they trusted had lied to them. Someone had told them that the day of Christ’s return had come and gone and that they had missed it. Christ’s return is just one thread, of course, in the total fabric of doctrine, but, like all the other threads, ...read more

  • Relying On The Work Of The Spirit

    Contributed by Isaac Butterworth on Apr 5, 2022
     | 550 views

    When we bear witness to the saving power of Christ, we must rely on the Spirit to empower our efforts.

    Jesus had told them to wait—His first disciples, I mean. He had given them important work to do—the most important work of all, actually—but He had told them not to attempt it just yet. No. They were to wait. “Don’t give,” He said, “until you have received. Nothing can be done by you until ...read more

  • Putting It All Together Series

    Contributed by Isaac Butterworth on Apr 5, 2022
     | 312 views

    It's nonsense to build our lives on a lie, but people do it. God calls us to build on a foundation of truth.

    There is nothing quite so destructive as a lie. No one wants to be lied to. It is nothing short of betrayal. And no one wants to be lied about. It is an ugly and contemptuous act. The Bible traces our worst problems back to a lie. The serpent, remember, asked the woman whether it was true what he ...read more

  • Becoming Small

     | 201 views

    We want to be big, but Jesus makes Himself small. We, too, must make ourselves small, like Jesus.

    BECOMING SMALL Mark 9:30-37 (ESV) What is wrong?—We want to be big. What is true?—Jesus makes Himself small. What to do—We must make ourselves small. How?—By… I Observing What Jesus Does for Us (Mark 9:30-32) 1. While Jesus Is Great, He Became Small (9:30-31a) ‘…He was teaching his disciples, ...read more

    Contributed by Isaac Butterworth on Apr 5, 2022
     | 471 views

    Speaking God's Word is fraught with risk, yet God accomplishes His purpose through His Word. Therefore, we must speak God's Word despite the risks.

    Why do you think Jeremiah was so ‘afraid’? It’s not really hard to figure out, is it? God had a message He wanted delivered, and He wanted Jeremiah to deliver it. But here’s the thing about God’s message: Not everyone wants to hear it. Why not? Because it exposes sin and calls for repentance. It ...read more

  • The Most Important Thing Of All

    Contributed by Isaac Butterworth on Apr 5, 2022
     | 221 views

    We look everywhere else rather than to Jesus for the answers to life's problems. But Jesus has--and IS!--the answer to our most important questions. Therefore, we must find our answers in Jesus.

    THE MOST IMPORTANT THING OF ALL Mark 10:17-31 What is wrong?—Looking elsewhere—rather than to Jesus—for answers. What is true?—Jesus has—and IS!—the answer to our most important questions. What to do—We must find our answers in Jesus. How?—By coming to understand three things: I The Most ...read more
