The Covenant – Hit the Mark

Large 3D text of the word \"promise\" on a landscape background with a man climbing on the letters.

A promise is only as strong as who it is that stands behind it. One’s faith in the promise giver is tested when there is zero evidence that it will ever be fulfilled. Claiming and holding onto promises from God are integral to the life of a believer, even when they appear to be outside … [Click to read more …]

The Destruction of Jerusalem – Hit the Mark

The Destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuzar-adan

Jerusalem was destroyed because of bad leadership. In spite of their favored status as a nation, their miraculous deliverance from bondage and their mighty triumphs against their national foes, God’s people forsook Him to worship and serve idols. Yes, the people were culpable in these crimes against heaven, yet had those in leadership been true … [Click to read more …]

I’m having a hard time understanding this week’s lesson on The Crisis Within and Without. My confusion starts with the first three verses of Jeremiah chapter 2.

Paul: Mission and Message – Hit the Mark

Soldier wearing armor holding sword while praising God.

There are few things more depressing and debilitating than a false sense of hope that is dashed to pieces on the rocks of reality. Just give it to me straight or don’t give it to me at all. Don’t boost my ego at the expense of my destiny. Don’t tell me things you think I … [Click to read more …]

Paul: Background and Call – Hit the Mark

The First Christian Martyr

There must have been many sleepless nights. Surely his conscience nagged at him constantly. Although he could proclaim that he was on a holy mission, there were too many evidences that gave ample reason for doubt. At his hands many believers of the new sect had been arrested, condemned, imprisoned and some put to their death. … [Click to read more …]
