The Greatest of These

1 Corinthians 13:1-3 We look from another perspective at this great chapter and emphasize the supremacy of love over everything else in the Christian walk. The possession of great gifts or great knowledge are nothing unless they are accompanied with this love, which is the w

Love Does Not Act Unbecomingly

1 Corinthians 13:5 We look again at the important subject of Christian love. We see that the Lord Jesus Christ personifies this love and serves as our great Example of how this love should be manifested in we who are His children. Here we see that love behaves appropriatel

She Will Call His Name Immanuel

Isaiah 7:14 We pause from our series in Matthew to remind ourselves again of the wonder of the Christmas story. We see how the prophecy of the virgin birth applied at the time of King Ahaz but then we look to its ultimate fulfillment in the coming of Christ. We exam

The Unpardonable Sin

Matthew 12:30-32 In some of the most frightening words that Jesus spoke, He indicates that there is a sin which can be committed for which there can be no forgiveness – either in this age or in the age to come. We look at the following questions: * Exactly what is this u

The Kingdom of God Has Come Upon You

Matthew 12:22-29 Jesus heals a demon possessed man who was brought to Him blind and mute. We see the spiritual parallel between this man and all of us as we are born into this world. Then we consider the role of miracles in demonstrating that Jesus is the Christ and authe

Love is Patient

1 Corinthians 13:4 We begin to examine the first of the characteristics Paul gives us of the love that he prizes so highly. We look at what patience is and how believers should conduct themselves towards those who hurt them. We should never repay evil with evil but with go

It is Lawful to Do Good on the Sabbath

Matthew 12:9-14 The Pharisees pursue their questioning of Jesus but not because they want to learn from Him; rather because they want to find grounds to accuse Him. Presented in a synagogue on the Sabbath with a man whose hand was withered, Jesus was asked if it was law

Without Love, All Is Worthless

1 Corinthians 13:3 Continuing our series in this chapter of 1 Corinthians, we see that the love Paul speaks of here is a crucial thing. Without it, we are not believers and it does not matter what deeds we do, what thoughts we think or what words we speak – all these things

The Son of Man Is Lord of the Sabbath

Matthew 12:1-8 Jesus taught from real examples and from situations as they occurred. We are encouraged to teach our children in a similar manner, and children are encouraged to listen to their parents so that they can avoid dangers. When the Pharisees questioned His di

Love is greater than spiritual gifts’

1 Corinthians 13:1-2 It is love that covers over a multitude of sins and can keep us together as we work through our differences. Here, the Apostles Paul presents love as the most excellent way and shows that it is far more superior and worth possessing than even the extraor

Come to Me, and I Will Give You Rest’

Matthew 11:27-30 We examine this wonderful Gospel call from our Lord Jesus Christ. We have already seen that God gave Him a people as His reward for accomplishing God’s purposes in salvation. Here we see that God also gives Him the authority to reveal God to His own. We

The Importance of Love

1 Corinthians 13 We begin a series in this glorious chapter of God’s Word by considering the centrality and importance of love in the Christian life. We consider how many divisions there are in Christ’s church today. Of course, there were problems in the New Testament ch
