Spiritual Gravity of Sin and Righteousness

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), November 25 Without gravitational forces, man would float off into space and into death; without the forces that keep the spheres in their places, the stars of heaven would bombard and destroy the earth. Life could not exist without the mystery of gravity. Spiritual forces also exist. An irresistible gravitational pull toward sin binds man to death, "for the wages of sin is death" (Rom. 6:23), and an irresistible... Read More

Planned Giving

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), November 23 Money is a fly trap for the heart; giving frees the heart from its grasp. Jesus speaks about money frequently. He notices the gifts of the rich and of the poor, "And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in her two mites" (Lk. 21:1-2). He engages numerous wealthy people; sadly, some walk away as the fingers of their heart clutch... Read More

Paul's View of Women in Ministry

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), November 21 God calls and gifts women for ministry, but He establishes parameters in which to operate. Women are tempted to expand their ministry beyond God's parameters, and men are tempted to constrict those parameters. Paul addresses those parameters in several of his epistles (1 Cor. 11; 1 Tim. 2). Paul permits women to pray and to prophesy in the local assembly with their heads covered, a symbol of being under authority... Read More

Sexual Immorality, the Body, and the Kingdom of God

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), November 19 It is not politically correct to question anyone's sexuality or to "call out" another believer for sexual sin. Yet the Apostle Paul was unafraid to address sexual immorality or any other sin practiced by anyone in the church. He instructed the Corinthian believers to dissociate themselves from those claiming to know Christ, but practicing sin, "But now I have written to you not to keep company with... Read More

A Young Church in a Pagan Culture

Paul and an Unreached People Group

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), November 16 Paul encounters an unreached people group of Epicurean and Stoic philosophers and idolators in Athens. To them, as with all unreached peoples, the teaching about "Jesus and the resurrection" is "foreign" and "strange" (Acts 17:18, 20). Paul's conversation with the Athenians demonstrates how to engage an unreached people group: Paul begins at the beginning of the story, with the... Read More

Conflict Accompanies the Gospel

The One Year® Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), November 14 Two types of conflict occur in the early church: conflict over doctrine and conflict over mission strategy and personnel. Cultural distinctions often cause conflict between people groups. The early church faces this conflict when the believers from various backgrounds come together, and some Jewish/Pharisee-background believers demand that Gentile-background believers be circumcised and keep the law, "It is...

His is not a quiet faith, but a robust and public faith, "among the people" (6:8).

The Fatherhood of God
