03: The Holy Spirit – Hit the Mark

Fire Dove

Their mission was simple – find Jesus and ask him a very direct question. The expected answer would either be yes or no. The reason for this simple question was more complex. The imprisoned John the Baptist was a believer in Christ. Yet, through the insinuations of others and his own misconceptions of the role of the Messiah, doubts began to arise in John’s mind. He needed an answer from Jesus confirming who He was and to this end he [...]

Jesus & Apostles

I never really thought about this until this week’s lesson on The Son. Hyperbole in speech is so common that unconsciously I took for granted some of the words Jesus spoke to His disciples. But this week, examining who Jesus is, gave me an opportunity to look deeper into my beliefs and convictions.

Jesus had been intensely preparing His disciples for the climatic events that would soon follow. Who He was to them would determine their futures. The nation was stirred [...]

heaven

I don’t know where heaven is. Those who study space constantly find that what they understood to be the limits of space in reality are only gateways to more expansive space. Using man’s fastest conception of speed it would take millions of light years just to reach parts of what our most powerful telescopes reveal. It is mind boggling to consider the size of the known universe and just how tiny our little planet is compared to the countless galaxies that surround us.

And [...]

Entrance to Kingdom

Bound, beaten and bruised he stands as a Royal King. He is in the clutches of the most powerful kingdom on Earth. He has no advocates and a chorus of voices are crying out for a sentence of death. There standing before Him, holding the scales of life or death, is the powerful governor of Rome.

With wonder Pilot examines the Accused and notes the peace that He has while all around a storm of anger and hate is raging. He [...]

Baton Handoff

Constantly on the go, they are best known by the attributes of teamwork, planning and perseverance. From one generation to the next they focus on their primary goal. Although often challenged with huge obstacles they find a way to overcome.

Theirs is not a life of inactivity. Theirs no stopping and basking in the accomplishments of yesterday. Theirs no static mission, but one that goes from one victory to the next.

Many seem to serve only rudimentary purposes and appear far removed from [...]

Evidence

I am taking the liberty to subtitle this week’s topic to “Evidence is Not Enough.”

This week’s lesson on The Apostles and the Law gives additional insight into the validity of the law. From those who knew Jesus best we see a consistency in their understanding of the ongoing role of the Law in the lives of God’s people. This adds to our arsenal of evidence to defend the Law – but evidence is not enough.

It is true that we should carefully [...]

prom•ise: an express assurance on which expectation is based.

From the moment man found himself in trouble, God has come beside humanity with a promise of remediation. No crime has been too large, no offence to great. It has always been about the promise.

To Adam, who had unleashed the curse of death on mankind, God lovingly provided a remedy through a promise of a sin bearer. That covenant has yet to cease and still provides hope for you and me so [...]

Truth

This has gone down in history as one of the greatest spiritual and moral failures of all time. It was a seemingly unforgivable offense. With fear overtaking his faith and trust, Peter denied knowing the Man he had spent his last years following as a faithful, trusted disciple.

Peter had seen it all, from entire villages being healed from disease to the raising of the dead. He had witnessed miracles that were beyond the imagination. He was a first-hand witness as [...]
