The Seven “I AM” Statements of Jesus in John

The Seven “I AM” Statements of Jesus in John

Almonds from a walking staff.

In Numbers 17, we have an interesting and perplexing story of God using the walking staffs of the elders of Israel to convey His will. In one sense, Numbers 17 is meant to end the rebellion and complaining of the children of Israel. Continue reading “Almonds from a walking staff.”

What is a disciple?

God’s Overcomers.

I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:14, ESV) Continue reading “God’s Overcomers.”

As you go evangelism.

I really believe this was done with the best of intentions. I also believe that it used to work. Throughout the 1960s through the 1980s Christians would meet in church buildings around 7 P.M. on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays. They would be given a list of names and then, in groups of two or three, they would dutifully go to those homes one by one. Continue reading “As you go evangelism.”
