• The Handwriting on the Wall

    Daniel 5

    In today’s passage, we saw the great and mighty dependent on the very people they conquered for insight into the Lord’s ways. God so often uses the meek, the powerless, and even the subjugated to show those who think they ...Read More

  • The Bread of Life

    John 6:22-59

    The first time we feed on Christ by faith, putting our trust in Him alone for salvation, we are brought out of the kingdom of darkness into the light. We are sustained in the faith that saves us as we ...Read More

  • Three Key Terms

    Psalm 12:6

    If you agree that one of today’s terms is true of Scripture, then you must agree that all of them are true. If the Bible is inspired, if it is breathed out by God as 2 Timothy 3:16–17 says, then ...Read More

  • Never Again

    Genesis 9:8–11

    While we cannot always draw a one-to-one correlation between natural disasters and divine judgment, we should not be surprised when evil nations suffer the ravages of nature. Moreover, we must never think God has nothing to do with inclement weather, ...Read More

  • Are Miracles for Today?

    Hebrews 2:1–4

    Dr. Sproul notes that there is no word for “miracle” in the original languages of Scripture. Our English term miracle translates Hebrew and Greek terms that are more literally rendered as “signs” or “wonders.” That shows that miracles are not ...Read More

  • The Prayer Life of Jesus

    Mark 6:45–46

    Jesus is more than a model of faithfulness to God, but He is certainly not less than that. Thus, we learn from Him that when we are faced with temptation and need sustenance in life and ministry, we must turn ...Read More

  • The Poor in Spirit

    Matthew 5:1–3

    Elsewhere, Jesus speaks these same words to the poor (Luke 6:20), because those who have nothing are often able to see their need for salvation most clearly. Still, one does not need to lack possessions to see the kingdom of ...Read More

  • A Blessedness No One has Imagined

    Isaiah 7

    Scholars have long debated whether the original Hebrew of today’s passage is better translated “virgin” or “young woman.” This is a worthy debate, but if we are not careful, we could miss this key point: just as the son born ...Read More

  • Be Content

    Hebrews 13:5–6

    Are you content with what you have? Or is there something that is not yours that you covet? In prayer, ask the Lord to reveal those things that you covet. Take some steps to avoid this sin — such as ...Read More

  • God the Holy Spirit

    Genesis 1:1–2

    We do not totally understand what it means for the Father to be unbegotten, the Son to be begotten, and the Spirit to proceed. As Augustine once said, we use these terms not because we can define them fully but ...Read More
