Mary Mother of Jesus

    “In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary…. And the angel said to her, ” You will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you will call his name Jesus,” Luke 1: 26-27 Since Mary was a virgin, she did not understand how this could be, but she was submissive to God’s will for her life. Though it was a special blessing to be selected from all women …

Elizabeth, Mother of John the Baptist

        “In the days of Herod, there was a priest named Zechariah… and his wife was Elizabeth, Though they were righteous, they had no children.”  Luke 1: 5-7 But God was aware of Elizabeth’s bareness, and promised her husband she would conceive during old age and bear a son. It was considered a reproch to be barren, and God honored the aged couple with a son, and he was named John. The next mention of John is in the wilderness preaching a message of repentance and baptizing those who responded to the message. Jesus knew all that John was doing and went to the …

Mary Magdalene

“Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with Him, and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities—Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come seven demons,  and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others who provided for Him from their substance.” Luke 8: 1-3   It is admirable that when men all except John, were forsaking Jesus, some women followed Him, and remained faithful. Evidently Mary Magdalene, out of whom Jesus cast seven demons, was one of His …

Mary and Martha

Scripture: Luke 10: 38-42 “…Jesus entered a village, and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister named Mary, who sat at the feet of Jesus and listened to His teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went to Jesus and asked if He didn’t care that her sister had left her alone to serve. But Jesus reminded her she was troubled and anxious unimportant things but Mary had chosen that which can not be taken away.” On another occasion before Jesus was crucified Mary anointed Jesus with some rather expensive ointment and was criticized by some saying it was a waste. …

Woman At The Well

Scripture: John 4: 3-10 “When Jesus left Judea and left for Galilee, He had to pass through Samaria, so He came to a town of Samaria called Sychar, near the field Jacob had given his son Joseph, and Jacob’s well was there. So being wearied from His journey, Jesus was sitting beside the well. and it was about the sixth hour. A woman from Samaria came to draw water, and Jesus asked her for a drink. His disciples had gone into the city to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to Him, “How is it that You, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of …

Rahab the Prostitute

“By faith the people crossed the Red Sea as on dry land, but the Egyptians, when they attempted to do the same, were drowned. By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been circled during seven days. By faith Rahab, the prostitute, didn’t perish with those who were disobedient: because she had given a friendly welcome to the spies.” Hebrews 11: 29-31. We read that after forty years of war and conflict, Israel was ready to enter the promised land, but still much work remained to be done. They were entering new territory; many city-states were in the area, each was fortified with a …

A Clear Goal

“For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son.” Romans [8:29] When I was growing up, I had a favorite sleeping bag. This sleeping bag was special to me because on the front of the bag was printed my favorite superhero—Wonder Woman. Do you remember Wonder Woman? I remember her shiny red and blue outfit and the sparkling tiara in her long, black hair. When I slept in my Wonder Woman sleeping bag, I pretended I was Wonder Woman. In my fantasy, there was no task too difficult for me, and no problem …

A New Definition of Freedom

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1 Today’s culture needs a new definition of freedom—a definition based on biblical truth. Believers in Jesus Christ grossly misunderstand freedom when they buy into the world’s definition of freedom by thinking that freedom means independence from any limitations of time, money, relationships, and consequences.  This misunderstanding occurs when a believer thinks that they are free when they are able to do what they want to do, when they want to do it, …
