Where Is Jesus?

I just finished a small Bible study on a puzzling topic: Is Jesus currently sitting or standing, and is He on a throne or not? To me this is a puzzling topic as I don’t think the Scriptures are incredibly clear on it. Let me explain. At the end of the synoptic gospels, Jesus is […]

The Request of Five Daughters

Some say that you can find Jesus Christ on every page of the Bible, even in the strangest stories which seem to make no sense. In Numbers 27 we find such a story which turns out to be much needed for Jesus. Even more, without it Jesus would not have been… well, just read the […]

First, You Pick Up the Cross

“Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.” (Luke 14:27) Not to offend anyone here, but I believe we have a way to easy and convenient and almost metaphorical picture of cross-bearing.

Growing in Grace and Knowledge

Every morning I read Spurgeon’s “Morning by Morning” devotional. All of them are great, but some are exceptional. Today was one of those, in which case I do not want to withold it from you. “Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” – 2 Peter 3:18 Grow in grace […]

Christian Privilege and Necessity

I aim to read C.H. Spurgeon’s Morning by Morning devotional every morning; and Evening by Evening devotional every night. As I was reading this morning’s edition I felt I had to share this on my blog. “because of the truth that abides in us and will be with us forever” (2 John 2) Once the […]
