Let the Word Dwell in You Richly
Written by David Wise

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” – Colossians 3:16

 

As we close out one year and look forward toward the beginning of a new year, we reflect on God’s blessings in our life over the last year but also reflect on our shortcomings as well. This is a time when it is productive to “examine yourselves” (2 Cor. 13:5, 1 Cor. 11:28) to hopefully look for how we may improve our walk with Christ if God is gracious to grant us another year of life. As I consider my discipleship goals for the coming year, this verse has steadily come to forefront of my mind – to “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom”. I hope to invest and immerse myself more fully and fall in love more passionately with Christ’s word in the coming days, months, and years.

Moving past the pleasantries of prayer

".....yet ye have not, because ye ask not." -James 4:2b

 

We often use certain expressions that involve prayer to relay our empathy toward others. Expressions as "praying for you" or "you are in our prayers." Unfortunately, without realizing it we soon turn our empathetic phrases into common pleasantries.

"And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me." Acts 12:7-8

Blameless
Written by David Wise   
Wednesday, 07 December 2016 20:55

“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Thess. 5:23

 

Here we find Paul’s confidence in the promise that God shall preserve the entire spirit, soul, and body of His elect. The spirit and soul of man go into the presence of God immediately when the saints’ die here in this world. The body will then be glorified and conformed to the image of Jesus Christ at His second coming. Notice another aspect of the final state of our spirit, soul, and body – we shall be “blameless”.

Unleavened Feast of Sincerity and Truth
Written by David Wise   
Thursday, 10 November 2016 12:54

“Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” – 1 Cor. 5:8

 

At the time of Paul’s first letter to the Corinth Church, all Jews who had not believed in Jesus Christ, still observed the Passover feast in accordance with the command of the Mosaic law.  However, Jesus came to fulfill all the law (Matt 5:17-18), so the church is no longer bound by observance of the Old Testament law, but rather is ruled by the New Testament covenant of grace. While the church is therefore not required to observe the Old Testament version of the Passover feast, Paul introduces a new “feast” that the church should observe, relating to the purity and sincerity of our conduct in the church.

Biblical Timeline of the Old and New Testament
Written by David Wise   
Wednesday, 02 November 2016 07:16

I have attempted to compile these timelines and bible study aids during my personal bible studies over the last few years.  This collection covers a general overview of major events in the Old and New Testament, presented in the form of a timeline.  This has been beneficial for me during my studies as a quick guide to check when certain things occurred instead of having to reverify each date or event all over again, which I had already studied and researched.  I hope these timelines can serve in the same useful manner for you in your bible studies.
