I am Not Worthy

Harvey Heneveld

READ : John 1:19-27 Jesus paid this tribute to John the Baptist: “I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John” (Luke 7:28). John was no one’s patsy. He was bold and spoke with such force that even King Herod feared him. Yet John said of himself that he was simply a “voice calling in the desert.” He renounced all self-impor tance, along with the applause people wanted to give him. He said he …

Don't Let Pride Blind You

READ : Luke 5:1-11 In today’s passage Peter shows us two qualities of leadership in God’s kingdom. One is doing what Jesus tells us, even though we may not under stand it. “Because you say so,” Peter replied, “I will let down the nets.” Every leader in God’s kingdom must be obedient to Jesus.

After all, God’s Presence dwelt in the holy of holies. God’s Spirit …

READ : Isaiah 46:1-10 Isaiah lived at a time when it was common for people to make images out of wood or precious metals, and then worship them as gods. They could set them where they wanted them. They could carry them around. They could see and touch their gods. In many places today people still make and worship images that they can see and touch and carry around.

One More Powerful

Harvey Heneveld

READ : Luke 3:10-20 We will soon observe one of the two most significant events in the history of the universe. Christ’s death-resurrection is one of these important events. The other is the incarnation we celebrate at Christmas. The Almighty Creator of the universe took our human nature upon Himself, was born of a woman and came to us in the man known as Jesus. When John the Baptist was most popular, many people wondered if he was the Messiah. …
