I wanna be rich…

Before I get skewered, the title is a Calloway reference. Feel free to google them. 1 Timothy 6:9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have […]


1 Timothy 6:3 If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, 4 he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, 5 [b]useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the […]

Where do wars and fights come from?

James 4 Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? 2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. I love […]

Did he just say appointed?

Acts 13 47 For so the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, That you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.’ ” 48 Now when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of the Lord. And as many as had […]

The biggest book ever.

John 21:22 Jesus said to him, “If I [h]will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.” 23 Then this saying went out among the brethren that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, “If I will that […]

Feed my sheep.

From the comments yesterday: “God always has purpose for His words. there are many scriptures regarding useless talking.” VERY TRUE. This is why we must read to understand every word that He spoke. John 21:17 Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep. 18 Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded […]

Do you love me?

John 21 15 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of [b]Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I [have affection for]love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.” 16 He said to him again a second time, […]

Different Look, Same Loving Jesus

John 21 11 Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”—knowing that it was […]
