Encourage: The preacher’s heart

Open the Bible and open your heart. Last week we began to consider the priority of preaching. The health and strength of our churches depends on the consistency and the quality of our preaching. The flock of God needs to be fed. This is an ongoing theme of the New Testament. We pray for our pastors to make preaching a priority. On one hand, preaching is a complex craft. The preacher must be equipped to rightly divide the Word and then...

Bible Q&A: Render to Caesar? (Mark 12:13-17)

The question (Mark 12:13-14) On Tuesday of the week Jesus was crucified, tensions between Jesus and the religious authorities were at an all-time high. Some Pharisees and Herodians, typically Jewish sects that could not work together, joined forces to try to trap Jesus and hopefully bring about his arrest. Taxation provided an area of inquiry that leads easily to inflamed rhetoric and enraged tempers in almost any culture. And so, in...

Taller de Predicación Expositiva

La tarea más importante de un Pastor es la predicación de la Palabra de Dios. El apóstol Pablo cuando estaba en Mileto reunido con los ancianos de Efeso les dijo: “porque no he rehuido anunciaros todo el consejo de Dios” (Hechos 20:27). No solamente dijo eso sino que en 1 Timoteo 3, él resalta como uno de los requisitos más importantes para el Pastor el que sea apto para enseñar. En 2 Timoteo 2:2, Pablo instruye a Timoteo a que lo que...

Evil multiplies, God hides

“Yes, you are a God who hides, God of Israel, Savior” (Isa. 45:15, CSB). Why isn’t God more obvious? The question is often asked in many ways and in many contexts: When prayers go unanswered, why is God silent? When suffering or tragedy strikes, why would God allow this to happen? When struggling over the countless millions who don’t know about God revealed in Jesus Christ, why wouldn’t God want more people saved? When the “evidence”...

Encourage: Use spiritual tools

You can do just about anything if you have the right tools. What tools do we need to use to build and repair our nation? Most everyone agrees that our nation is facing some serious challenges. Christians live with a deep sense of burden and obligation to be salt and light. We want to be good citizens who help build up and not tear down. What tools should we use? On Independence Day, we will celebrate the freedom of the United States...

Bible Q&A: Do not judge? (Matt. 7:1-5)

Having listened to Jesus speak of giving His life for the world (John 6:60), His disciples exclaimed, “This is a hard saying; who can hear it?” This would not be the last time one of Jesus’ followers would express such a sentiment. In fact, there are many sayings of Jesus that fit the description of a “hard saying.” One such saying is found in the Sermon on the Mount in Matt. 7:1, “Do not judge, so that you won’t be judged.” Jesus’...
