Wisdom and Foolishness

Proverbs 1:20-33 Here, the author personifies wisdom in the form of a Lady who offers instruction to the foolish. Sadly, they reject her call and end up living a life that leads to destruction. We too, are foolish, and often think that our ways are best. But this passage highlights the journey of the fool and warns readers of following that same path.

Have we misidentified Jesus?

Luke 18:31-43 As we open our Easter series in the book of Luke, it’s important to reflect on exactly who Jesus is. While the question may sound simple, perhaps the Jesus we have in our heads isn’t quite the whole picture of the chosen Messiah spoken about in the Bible. In this account of Jesus’ interaction with the blind beggar, we see that in order to recognise the real Jesus, we must understand his authority, mercy, and mission.

Joyful Worship

Deuteronomy 12-16 As the nation of Israel prepares to enter the land promised to them by Yahweh, Moses reveals to them various laws for righteous living that they must abide by. While a bit strange at first glance, these laws have much to teach us about worship. Specifically, who we are to worship, where worship takes place, and how we are to worship.

1 Peter 4:12-19 As we begin the book of 1 Peter, the apostle writes to persecuted Christians, instructing them how to live lives as “Elect Exiles” in a world that is not their home, encouraging them to live lives that glorify Christ, and that despite their circumstances, the joy and peace of Christ are available.

Powerful Prayers

Ephesians 1:15-23 In this prayer that opens the book of Ephesians, Paul highlights that Christians need to embrace a grateful attitude towards prayer, pray we may have this assurance of hope in Christ, and pray that we may be strengthened by God’s mighty power.
