Symbolic Acts – Hit the Mark

Potter and Clay 1,

“But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.” Isaiah 64:8 The familiar story of the potter and the clay teaches us profound lessons. For Jeremiah, it illustrated that God is able to not only create, but to start … [Click to read more …]

Rebuke and Retribution – Hit the Mark

A woman kneeling and holding her broken heart.

Following God in this world involves suffering. Let’s accept the fact that suffering comes with the territory of being a believer in a world that is not our home. To be true to God will cost you. It cost Jeremiah a lot. Everyone wants to be loved and well thought of. None in their right … [Click to read more …]

The Crisis (Within and Without) – Hit the Mark

Calf Idol

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. Jeremiah gets a direct message from God to tell His people that He reminisces about the good old days – the days when they started out together into … [Click to read more …]

The Prophetic Calling of Jeremiah – Hit the Mark

Country pathway

God always has a plan. There is never an emergency that He has not already provisioned a solution. There is never a crisis that can find Him unaware or unprepared. He never sleeps nor slumbers. And often, as is the case with Jeremiah, He chooses leaders who are unsuspecting of the role they will play … [Click to read more …]

Paul: Mission and Message – Hit the Mark

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 …]

Philip as Missionary – Hit the Mark

Philip and the Ethiopian

“Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.” Acts 8:5 This week’s lesson on Philip as Missionary takes us back to the good ole days. Those were the days when the preaching of Christ and Christ alone was sufficient. Those were the days when it was all about the … [Click to read more …]

Peter and the Gentiles – Hit the Mark

Sunset from Joppa.

If I had not read it with my own eyes, I might not have believed it. It’s not that I’m unfamiliar with the miraculous working of God throughout the Bible. Countless times I’ve read about how God has done the impossible. He made the waters of a sea stand up in a salute to let … [Click to read more …]

Jesus: The Master of Missions – Hit the Mark

Announcement From the Temple Steps

His disciples and the crowd gathered around Him must have been shocked. Never in their lives had they heard anyone speak to their revered religious leaders as Jesus was doing. For their generation there was no higher religious authority than the scribes, Pharisees and lawyers. From cradle to grave they were taught to revere them … [Click to read more …]

Hope for the Hopeless – Hit the Mark

An Isrealite man prays while working in the early morning hours

“Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity.” ~ John Flavel I’m retitling this week’s lesson on Esther and Mordecai to “Hope for the Hopeless.” There are so many times in life when we simply do not know what to do. We find ourselves in difficult situations and often feel as though we are carrying the weight of the … [Click to read more …]
