Read: Hebrews 10:12

The writer of Hebrews has been discussing Christ’s atoning death in the light of the Old Testament sacrifices. In our verse, Christ is contrasted with the ministry of the Old Testament priests whom he mentioned in the previous verse. They offered sacrifices daily. They stood all the time while they ministered. They repeated their sacrifices in the morning and in the evening. Yet those sacrifices could not take away the sins of the people. In that verse, it was said concerning their ministry that “every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins...

These words of our Lord Jesus Christ indicate that the world is in darkness. The darkness that covers the world is moral and spiritual darkness. Darkness symbolises ignorance, iniquity, error, superstition and everything that opposes truth and godliness. People are living in the darkness of spiritual ignorance and moral corruption. In John 3:19, Jesus said, “men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil....

It is with great fondness we remember that our God is “God of all grace”. This designation of God denotes more than just God being gracious by His nature. It also depicts Him as the reservoir, source, and supply of grace in all its manifestations. In Him is the fullness of grace. To all who come to His throne of grace by faith in Christ Jesus – who is His gracious provision for their salvation – He will make available the exceeding riches of His grace...


Romans 14:9

Read: Romans 14:9

There is, of course, a sense in which Jesus has always been Lord, for He is the Creator, Governor and Provider of all things. By virtue of His divine nature, He is indeed Lord of all. But Paul is not talking about that. He is referring to His Lordship in view of the atoning work that He accomplished through His death and resurrection. Some theologians correctly call it “the lordship of redemptive relationship”. In a very special sense, Christ is Lord of those to whom He brought salvation through His death and resurrection...

Read: John 15:5b

There is great assurance for everyone who wants to triumph over his spiritual failures, dullness and fruitless condition. Jesus here gives to every Christian the most essential key to living a fruitful life. He gives everyone who is discouraged and despondent over his failures, reasons to cheer himself in anticipation of a fruitful life.

A fruitful Christian life is not about one’s sufficiency or ability. One might feel that he is full of weakness. Let him not be ashamed to confess his insufficiency before the Lord...

The songs that Christians sing must have marked difference from that of the world. Our music cannot be like the music of the world. While we sing unto the glory of God, the world sings to the pleasure of man. Most of the world’s music reflects the worldly thinking, passions and pursuits. The character of Christians’ songs and music must reflect the spiritual purposes for which the Lord has ordained singing in the church. Our songs should not be chosen for their entertainment value...


Luke 24:6

Read: Luke 24:6

This was the angelic declaration on the day of Christ’s resurrection. Thus they announced the grand truth of Christ’s resurrection to the women who went to His tomb on the third day of His burial.

The angels indisputably announced, “He is not here, He is risen!” Though He is not there, He assuredly was once there in the tomb, for He was crucified, dead, and buried. These women had been there at His tomb when He was buried...


Hebrews 7:25a

Read: Hebrews 7:25a

The Lord Jesus Christ “is able to save”. He is mighty to save, for He is our divine Saviour. Titus 2:13 refers to Him as “the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (cf. Titus 2:10; 1 Timothy 1:1). Jude 1:25 refers to Jesus Christ as “the only wise God our Saviour”, to whom belongs “glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever”. As the omnipotent God, Jesus Christ has immeasurable power to save sinners from their sins and eternal condemnation. In Isaiah 45:22, He says, “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else...

Read: James 4:8a

The duty required of us here primarily entails our returning to God from our wandering away from Him. In Zechariah 1:3, the Lord declared unto Israel, “Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the LORD of hosts.” Again, the Lord said in Malachi 3:7, “Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts...

Read: Galatians 2:20a

Paul testifies here the reality of his salvation and its continuing influence in his life. This ought to be the testimony of every Christian. By the expression, “I am crucified with Christ”, Paul depicts the fact that when we are joined to Christ by faith, we die with Him. The curse of the law against our sins demanded our death. So Christ bore our sins and died on the cross on our behalf to take away the curse of the law against our sins. As Paul said in Colossians 2:14, “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us...
