Matthew 22:34-40 – Christ is the Treasure of the Church Scattered

As God’s image-bearers (Genesis 1:26), we are designed to love God and others in the same way that God loves God and others. God, being the most pure, perfect, powerful, and precious entity in existence, must love himself most in order to love everything else best, since everything else is “from him and through him […]

Colossians 3:16-17 – Christ is the Treasure of the Church Gathered

Perhaps you have heard someone say something like, “I love God but I’m not really into church.” Or “I don’t need to go to church to worship God; it’s more of a private thing for me.”   There’s a common misconception, a common misunderstanding, that our faith is private. There’s confusion between a private faith […]

Philippians 3:7-11 – Our Supreme Treasure is God Alone

The very high value that the apostle Paul set upon the Savior, is most palpable, when he speaks of winning Him. This shows that the Savior held the same place in Paul’s esteem as the crown did in the esteem of the runner at the Olympic games. To gain that crown, the competitor strained every […]

Mark 6:14-19 – The Cost of Pursuing Holiness

We see how boldly a faithful minister of God ought to rebuke sin. John the Baptist spoke plainly to Herod about the wickedness of his life. He did not excuse himself under the plea that it was imprudent, or impolitic, or untimely, or useless to speak out. He did not say smooth things, and palliate the […]

Mark 6:1-13 – The Peril of Unbelief

It’s lovely to see how gracious the Lord Jesus is to the hardest of hearts, isn’t it? It is wonderful to know that the Lord Jesus, even now, to the hardest heart in this congregation is reaching out again – and yet, that said, we can never and ought never to presume upon His gracious […]

Mark 5:21-43 – The Tenderness and Timing of Jesus

If the disciples were irritated by our Lord’s seemingly unnecessary delay, you can well imagine that Jairus was fit to be tied. He know that at any moment his daughter would be dead, and here was Jesus making mountains out of mole hills. Why could He not have simply ignored the woman in view of […]

Mark 5:1-20 Christ’s Power and Authority Over Evil

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is sovereign even over demons. The Lord Jesus Christ is sovereign even over the forces of evil. Even in His state of humiliation. Even in His state when He walks through this world as our Prophet, Priest and King bearing our infirmities and sorrows and suffering on our behalf, He […]

Mark 4:35-41 – Jesus: A King to be Feared

This passage isn’t about storms. Not physical storms. Certainly not metaphorical storms. Does this passage have application towards those things? Absolutely. But Mark didn’t put this passage in his account of the gospel to comfort you in the face of the storms in your life. In fact if you walk away from this passage feeling […]
