Mark 4:31
“It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:”

When I was young, most of the time I was the shortest in my class. You didn’t have to look hard in the class pictures to find me because I was normally the shortest one in the picture. My daughter seems to have followed in my footsteps, though she had no choice in the matter. Being the shorter person always brought about challenges of seeing what was going on up front, and it also brought a slight bit of jealousy towards the taller students. My father would often encourage me by saying, “Son, big things come in little packages.”

- Tuesday, 3/7/17  Psalm 119:1, Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. There are two conditions to receive this blessing: 1) be undefiled, i.e. saved.  2) Walk in the way, the roadway of the Bible. Do you qualify?

  • Matthew 26:40

“And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?”

Several times in the Scriptures the Christian is warned to watch. The night that Jesus prayed in the garden, He asked His disciples to pray with Him. After praying alone, He came back to check on the disciples only to see them sleeping. The final time He checked on them, He asked them, “What, could ye not watch with me one hour?” Jesus knew the importance of the Christian being on watch. If it is important for the Christian to watch then what does it mean to watch?

  • Matthew 18:7

“Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!”

I was in my last year of high school when one of the “respected” men from our church asked to talk to me. He brought me into a side room because he told me what he needed to talk to me about was private. His conversation was a mere attack against my dad who was the pastor of the church. He told me that my dad needed to be removed as pastor, and he was asking me to vote against my own family. This man’s efforts eventually came to naught, but not without damaging younger Christians.

- Tuesday, 2/28/17  Proverbs 22:13, The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets. I don’t know if the slothful man is simply making up an excuse, or whether he is a “worst case scenario” kind of a guy. Either are bad thinking habits.

Revelation 21:2

“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”

One of the greatest differences that I have observed between those who tend to accomplish more and those who tend to struggle is preparation. I knew an individual who everyone around him knew that a project wouldn’t be given attention until it was a crisis. I have also known several individuals who were well-planned with everything they did, and I believe that God has blessed their ministry in part due to their preparation.

Revelation 7:15

“Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.”

People often wonder why a person would still serve the LORD if once they get saved they are always saved. Let me first address that the eternal security of the believer has nothing to do with how good or bad a person may live. If that were the case, salvation would be acquired through works instead of grace. Second, God chose to save us because He loved us. God didn’t love us when we were good, but He loved us when we were bad. That is why Jesus had to die to pay for our sins because we could do nothing to save ourselves. Salvation is a gift from God that once you receive it you can never lose it. With this established, what would cause a Christian to still serve the LORD after salvation?

  • 2 Timothy 2:1

“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”

One of the commands given to Timothy by Paul was to be “strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” Paul understood that God’s grace was going to be Timothy’s comfort and anchor throughout his ministry. The same is true for every Christian. If you are going to make it to the end of life serving the LORD, you are going to have to be strong in grace. What does it mean or how do you become strong in grace?

Joel 2:12

“Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:”

One of the greatest attributes of God is that He always gives hope no matter what you may be facing. It doesn’t matter if what you are facing is a result of your own actions, or if what you are facing is a result of life in general; God always wants to give hope. He knows that as long as there is hope, there is a chance for the fallen to return and the righteous to continue no matter what they face.

- Tuesday, 2/14/17  Proverbs 11:2, When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom. If God never shows you anything out of the Bible, check your pride level. “Lowly” means humble or humiliated. Maybe and awareness of, and confessing of, pride needs to happen.
