1 John 5: 4-5

Today, there is victory in the power of Jesus and the power of his resurrection.  When we call on the name of Jesus, the enemy does not stand a chance.

Ephesians 6: 10 states, "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might."  In 1 John 5: 4-5 we read, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.  Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?"

Easter Season Approaching

It is around this time of year that the image of a cross is displayed and recognized among the Christian community.  With the Easter season approaching and the love that was shared, my thoughts have been lingering on what the cross represents on a personal level.

The cross represents the suffering that Christ went through for our individual salvation as was prophesied in Isaiah 53: 5, "He was wounded for our transgressions...."

Another, is the personal sacrifice of self.  St. Luke 9:23 states, "And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me."

In knowing the effects of the cross in our lives, we can declare as the old hymn resounds:

In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine, 
A wondrous beauty I see,
For 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
To pardon and sanctify me!

Kingdom of God

Many Bible readers interpret the Bible and its teachings from a natural or physical view point.  The tendency to interpret the Bible in this way is understandable.  As humans it is in our nature to think, make decisions, and act on what our physical senses tell us.  Even during the time of Christ, many Jews had hopes of a physical King who would come and save them from the Romans.  They desired freedom! 

Many at the time also had hopes of a physical resurrection, which is evidenced by Jesus’ conversation with Martha concerning her brother Lazarus who had recently died.  (This conversation is found in Matthew chapter 11.) 

However, Jesus’ purpose was far greater than a physical kingdom or a physical resurrection.  He explains this in John 6:63 when he states, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”  What Jesus is saying is that his words and teachings are spiritual and not natural. 

So does this mean that his teachings concerning the Kingdom of God, the Resurrection, Christ’s Second Coming, Holy Communion, Baptism, being “Born Again”, and “the end of the world” are all spiritual?  The answer to this question is YES!  The evidence is overwhelming and can be found throughout the entire Bible.  Of course, all of this cannot be covered or explained in a few paragraphs.  One example can be found in Luke 17:20-21 which states, “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:  Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

There is no question that a Kingdom which cannot be seen and one that is located “within you” is most definitely a “Spiritual Kingdom”.  So, this week as you study your Bible, try and view God’s precepts and teaching from a spiritual viewpoint.  By doing this you will soon discover that Jesus’ words are indeed spirit and they are life!

Have a great Week!

Circle of Influence

Whether we realize it or not, our life is a pattern for someone else to follow.  No matter how independent we think are or how insignificant we may feel; the way we live, the way we act, the way we think, influences others.  So this week think about your circle of influence and simply remember let the love of God shine through you for all to see.  You can make a difference for Christ!

Matthew 5:16 states, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

Have a great week!

Jesus is Our Anchor

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8 (KJV)

Have you noticed that the world just keeps on changing? The turbulence in our country’s economy for the last four years has negatively affected many of us and our neighbors….and there continues to be much unrest in the countries of the world around us. The only constant seems to be change. Jesus Christ told his disciples “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Put your trust in Jesus Christ today…he is our anchor in the midst of a stormy, ever-changing world.

Time is filled with swift transition,
Naught of earth, unmoved can stand,
Build your hopes on things eternal,
Hold to God’s unchanging hand.
(Song: Hold to God’s Unchanging hand)

Bro. Glenn Copeland
