Behold I Am Sending You Out

Jesus sends out his disciples into the harvest with explicit instructions. Jesus commissions them with authority and the Spirit of God supplies their words in times of need. The work of a disciple of Jesus is to proclaim the Kingdom in spite of opposition. God rewards those who faithfully proclaim His message.

The Harassed Harvest

Jesus looks upon the crowds following him, filled with the sick, the blind even the demon possessed and he is filled with compassion for them. He looks out and sees what others do not, a harvest. And he is sending his disciples out to reap the harvest.

Motherhood: A Work Worthy of Praise

Women and motherhood are under attack in our culture and as a result, every facet of society and family suffers. Contrary to modern cultural opinion, motherhood is a high calling and worthy of praise. Today we look at Proverbs 31 and learn how biblical motherhood is Christlike and hence, brings glory to Christ.

Mercy, Not Sacrifice

In this passage Jesus shows us how the nature of the kingdom of God is incompatible with our self-righteousness.
