    [Jesus] said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” —Mark 5:34

    During His public ministry on earth, Jesus met a woman who had suffered greatly from a bleeding condition for 12 years (Mark 5:25–34). She had consulted many doctors, but her condition had only worsened. Luke 8:43 notes that “no…

    Three Ways To Seek Jesus

    So Abram went, as the Lord had told him . . . they set out for the land of Canaan, and they arrived there. —Genesis 12:4–5

    The story of how Abraham, the patriarch of the Jews, left the familiarity and comforts of the Mesopotamian city of Ur holds many lessons for us. When God called him to go to Canaan,…

    Imitate Jesus in 2019

    To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. —1 Peter 2:21

    God wants us to become like Jesus—“For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son” (Romans 8:29). And Jesus himself tells us to follow His example.

    We may ask,…

    Joy to the World

    Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music. —Psalm 98:4

    “Joy to the World” remains one of the favourite Christmas carols sung in church services during the Christmas season. It was written by Englishman Isaac Watts in the eighteenth century; many consider him the greatest hymn writer of all time.

    Watts wrote many…

    The Gift of Christmas

    The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. —John 1:14

    I once observed a little child when she was given a present. The wrapping paper was quickly removed. The box was opened and when she…

    Good News

    The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. —Mark 1:1

    The birthday of the Roman emperor Augustus Caesar was celebrated throughout the Empire as “good news” and, with much pomp and grandiosity, he was declared the “Son of God”. These two phrases were common knowledge among Roman subjects, and Mark begins his gospel by…

    Have You Taken Time to Say Thank You?

    Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” —Luke 17:17-18

    When I asked the late John Stott what he considered to be the greatest problem in the church, he gave a one-word answer—superficiality. I agree with him. Connected to the epidemic of superficiality in…

    Social Needs of An Aged Christian

    Do your best to come to me quickly, for Demas, because he loved this world, has deserted me and has gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia. Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, because he is helpful to me in my ministry. —2 Timothy 4:9-11

    Paul knew that his…

    Intellectual Needs of An Aged Christian

    When you come, bring... my scrolls, especially the parchments. —2 Timothy 4:13

    Besides the cloak, Paul also requested Timothy to bring along his scrolls and parchments (2 Timothy 4:13). The scrolls were probably Old Testament Hebrew texts while the parchments were probably other books or writing material.

    It is fascinating that as he faced impending death, Paul still wanted his…

    Ending Well

    For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day –…

    Physical Needs of An Aged Christian

    When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas...—2 Timothy 4:13

    Paul had left behind his cloak with a man named Carpus at Troas (2 Timothy 4:13). It is likely that Paul was arrested at Troas and had to leave behind several of his possessions with trusted brothers and sisters. Now in prison, as winter approached,…

    Note to a Young Man

    Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. —Matthew 19:21¬–12

    The young man who came to Jesus (Matthew 19:20) was already very wealthy. Perhaps he…

    Don’t Forget God in Your Success

    Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. —Matthew 19:21¬–12

    The young man who came to Jesus (Matthew 19:20) was already very wealthy. Perhaps he…

    Timothy: From Introvert To Church Leader

    Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. —1 Timothy 4:12

    Timothy was Paul’s protégé. He was a native of Lystra who was probably converted through the ministry of Paul on his first missionary journey (Acts 14:8–22) when Paul…

    The Keys to the Kingdom... Are Very Small

    [Jesus said], “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them.” —Mark 10:14

    “Children are to be seen but not heard” is a relatively modern adage that reflects attitudes passed on from much older societies.

    When many parents brought their children to Jesus to “have him place his hands on them” (Mark 10:13), the disciples, who were trying…
