Word of the Day: Exodus 19-20, Matthew 18:21-35

Word of the Day

Exodus 19-20, Matthew 18:21-35 We have been reading about God's continue providing for the Nation of Israel as He continues to lead them to the promise land. We have seen several times were God has said He is testing them. We have also seen several times how they are so rebellious in complaining about their circumstances but yet God is so faithful to continue to provide a...

Word of the Day: Exodus 7-8, Matthew 15:1-20

Word of the Day

Exodus 7-8, Matthew 15:1-20 I have been praying and asking the Lord what he wants me to learn these past few days. I prayed the same prayer last night before I went to sleep. Then this morning in our reading it became a little clearer. We are given a new heart once we surrender our lives to Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5:17. But I still fight the flesh. We have covered the parabl...

Word of the Day: Lamentations 3:20-26

Word of the Day

Lamentations 3:20-26 We are back from a quick trip to Dallas for the funeral of my 26 year old nephew. Thank you for your prayers as we saw God's amazing grace and protection throughout our trip. Just to give you a few examples of what I mean. We drove through 9 hours of solid rain. I mean rain not drizzles. We arrived safely. We were able to serve as much as we could and...

Word of the Day: Genesis 23, 24 Matthew 7

Word of the Day

Genesis 23, 24 Matthew 7 I was finishing my quite time this morning moving a head in the daily reading so when you read the blog it would be where the daily reading is that we are going through as a church body and not a day behind. I received a message to call my dad which at that time of day is unusual unless something is wrong. My dad informed me that Becky my sister ...

Word of the Day: Genesis 20, 21, 22 Matthew 6:19-34

Word of the Day

Genesis 20, 21, 22 Matthew 6:19-34 Can you imagine being promised to be the father of a great nation through your wife in an old age. Then to see this promised fulfilled by the birth of a son but then be asked to sacrifice your only son. Why? Was this son now an idol and more important than the Lord? Was this incredible faith knowing God had bigger plans than what we huma...

Word of the Day: Genesis 18, 19 Matthew 6:1-18

Word of the Day

Genesis 18, 19 Matthew 6:1-18 Is anything if possible for God? I know the answer to that question. Do I live life consistent to that answer when faced with difficult situations. I would like to say yes but being honest I struggle with it just as Abraham and Sarah did with the promise they have been hearing for years. God is faithful and is going to bring us to that realit...

Word of the Day: Genesis 16, 17 Matthew 5:27-48

Word of the Day

Genesis 16, 17 Matthew 5:27-48 It is so easy to read and wonder what were people thinking. God had just promised Abram a child and that he would be blessed and be the father of many. Then we see how Abram an Sarai take matters into their own hands. Then I reflect back and see how I take matters into my own hands without even praying. I forget the promise just as quick as ...

Word of the Day: Genesis 13, 14, 15 Matthew 5:1-26

Word of the Day

Genesis 13, 14, 15 Matthew 5:1-26 Abram understood where his blessing came from. Abram's righteousness came from believing in God's promises. His worship of God was evident as he built altars and sacrificed to the Lord. People knew God was with Abram. In Matthew 5 we see Jesus giving the sermons or beatitudes. Can people see that I am a true follower of Christ? Do I get p...

Word of the Day: Genesis 10, 11, 12 Matthew 4

Word of the Day

Genesis 10, 11, 12 Matthew 4 Genesis we are now introduced to Abram. Here we see his obedience to the Lord when called to leave his home and family. Then in Matthew we see Jesus being led by the Spirit to the wilderness where He will fast for forty days and nights then be tempted by Satan. Later in the chapter we see the calling of the Disciples. The Disciples immediately...

Word of the Day: Genesis 7, 8, 9 Matthew 3

Word of the Day

Genesis 7, 8, 9 Matthew 3 We just read about the flood. I often wonder when I am in this part of Scripture why God did not just start all over. Why did He save Noah? We see that Noah was considered to be righteous before the Lord. His faith is remarkable in the fact God told him to build a ark and he does. There is only one way into the ark and God shuts Noah and his fami...

Word of the Day: Genesis 4, 5, 6, & Matthew 2

Word of the Day

Genesis 4, 5, 6, & Matthew 2 Cain an Able present offerings to the Lord. I have not seen any instructions on what the offering is suppose to be but we see that the Lord was pleased with Abel's offering and not Cain's. Then we we see Cain's countenance change. The Lord then visits with Cain about the sin that is crouching at his door. God has just given Cain away out o...

Word of the Day

Genesis 1,2,3 & Matthew 1 As we start a new year I will be joining the rest of wvBc in the reading plan announced on Sunday of reading the Bible through in the year. I like the fact we start in Genesis for a new start to the year. We start a new year with the book known as the origin or beginning. Chapter 1 has the creation account. As I was sitting eating breakfast w...
