Life for the dead isn’t just physical life for dead people. To be sure that is a reality in the kingdom of God. The lessons from today both talk about dead people coming back to life!
Sight for the Blind
Sight for the blind is more than a pair of glasses or contacts. I’ve recently spoken with people who have had cataracts removed from and new lenses implanted in their eyes. It’s amazing!
Water for the Thirsty
Water for the thirsty sounds like a rescue mission in the middle of the wilderness. Drinking water is ubiquitous in the Western world. Spiritual water is not. Consider Jesus’ comments to the woman at the well.
A Gift for the World
A gift for the world sounds like a great 80’s tune. The point of Romans 4 is the Apostle Paul expanding on the concept he throws out just a couple verses earlier: For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart the works of the law.
A Champion for the Defeated
A Champion for the Defeated could be none other than Jesus. In this blog post I want to focus on his opponent. Remember, someone has to lose, and in this case the loser is the devil.
Jesus Tells All
“Jesus Tells All” sounds like the title of a supermarket checkout line tabloid. While it’s true that all of Scriptures testify about our Lord Jesus, the account of the Transfiguration from the Matthew 17 is the perfect way to end the Epiphany season.
