God Will Provide Whatever You Need at the Time You Need It

Stephen Njiro

READ : Luke 22:7-13 In this reading, the Lord asks Peter and John to prepare the Passover feast meal for the group, and the question of the venue becomes an issue. In a modern ministry such an issue would probably never have come up. Such a ministry would probably own properties with lots of places where a dozen people could hold a private party. But the Lord did not amass property. He nevertheless got whatever facility was needed at the …

In Your Walk with God, Be Sure You Are Following Him for the Correct Reasons

READ : Luke 22:1-6 In verse 6 we see Judas agreeing to betray Jesus to his scheming enemies in the absence of the multitudes. But Judas wasn’t much worse than the average person today.

READ : Luke 19:1-10 In verse 5, Jesus says: “Zacchaeus, hurry down! I want to stay with you today” (cev).

God will give …

READ : Luke 19:1-10 In verse 4 we see Zacchaeus climbing up a tree to get a good view of Jesus as he passed by. Zacchaeus was short and needed a good observation point above the crowd. The Lord lived at a time when Palestine was colonized by the Romans. The Romans were known for their durable and straight roads designed for the rapid and reliable transit of their troops. The Lord could have chosen to drive from place to …

Do Not Be Embarrassed to Bring an Embarrassing Weakness to Jesus, Even in Public

Stephen Njiro

READ : Luke 18:35-43 Verse 39 reads: “he cried out all the more; ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!’” This was the blind man who wanted Jesus to give him back his sight. He shouted out for the Lord’s help when he heard him nearby passing through the town. Others thought his shouting was embarrassing and pleaded with him to keep quiet, but he cried out all the more. The Lord did stop. He spent time with the man …

Get the Most Jesus Has to Offer You and Don't Settle for Half-Measures

Stephen Njiro

READ : Luke 18:18-30 Each one of us must honestly determine what the motive really is that causes us to want to be identified with Jesus or his followers. This will save us from settling for half-measures as we seek to pursue one or the other of our selfish motives. And so we may obtain the vital thing that Jesus means us to have, safety and security in time and in eternity. The man who asked “What must I do …
