March 28 HC#32 – Romans 12:1-2 Christians also share in the priestly role as we are called to present a sacrifice to the Lord.  Romans 12:1-2 makes it pretty clear that the sacrifice we present is ourselves.  This sacrifice is to be a living sacrifice, or in other words, we present our lives to God […]

March 8 HC#25 – Matthew 28:16-20 The Great Commission is probably a familiar passage to many.  Jesus is giving a last command to His disciples as He ascends into heaven.  Go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  A clear cut call to […]

March 6 HC#25 – Deuteronomy 6:1-9 Hear, O Israel, The Lord your God is One.  Christianity is a monotheistic religion.  The first fundamental truth we need to understand is that there is one God, who exists in Three persons.  But it is NOT three gods.  The Lord your God is One.  The old Athanasian Creed […]

March 5 HC#24 – 2 Corinthians 13:11-14 Our culture today has a tendency to rush the ending.  Once we know who wins in a book we don’t read the falling action as closely.  Movies today wrap up the story, but don’t give you much idea of what comes next.  We barely even get the “happily […]

March 4 HC#24 – John 14:15-31 Sanctification means being made holy.   Too often today we think of sanctification as something we do ourselves.  It is our effort at being holy, our commitment to being good.  This is simply not the case.  John 14 is Jesus discussing the role of the Holy Spirit.  Jesus is […]

February 27 HC#22 – John 14:6-14 What then must we believe as Christians?  It is a logical next question, but it is also one we try to use to often to get around the hard truths of the Bible.  What must we believe is often a cover for a different question.  “What can I get […]

January 31 HC#11 – Revelation 14:9-11 The Bible gives us a clear picture of what happens to those who have rejected Jesus Christ.  It is a picture of extreme that is everlasting punishment of both body and soul.  Revelation 14:9-11 tells us vividly about just that.  Just examine it for a minute. Those who have […]

January 30 HC#11 – 2 Samuel 6 This story is often confusing.  Why does Uzza die?  Didn’t he stop the ark from falling in the mud?  It was not his decision to carry the ark on an ox cart rather than on poles with Levites, that would have been David who made the decision.  Yet, […]

January 29 HC#11 – Exodus 34:1-9 The Lord is merciful and slow to anger and abounding in love that does not falter.  Not only that but God is a God who forgives our sins.  This is all true and professed clearly in Exodus 34:6-7.  But that is not the end of the verses.  No, it […]

January 28 HC#10 – Proverbs 17:13 God will punish in time and in eternity says the Catechism.  It is easy to miss this point.  God will punish sin even here on earth.  We can all point to lots of passages that promise a judgment in the end.  In addition to the Revelation 20 there is […]
