John 1:14a

Read: John 1:14a

The Word which was divine and eternal (v.1) "was made flesh". This is an amazing summation of Christianity's grandest doctrine that the Second Person of the Trinity, the Son of God, became a man to be their Redeemer. Jesus Christ was the Word, which was both with God and who was God, who revealed Himself to us as a man...

As much as this exhortation is a warning to Christians against becoming weary of well doing, it is also an encouragement to continue in their commitment to be charitable and helpful to others in need. Throughout the New Testament, Christians are urged to be well doing. Jesus exhorted His followers in Matthew 5:16, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Likewise in Titus 3:8, we are instructed by Paul...

J

esus Christ was introduced to his readers by John as the Word, who was eternal God (cf. vv.1, 2). Now in verse 3, John gives further clarity and emphasis to the fact that Jesus was eternal and He was God by declaring that He is the Creator of all things...

Read: Romans 13:8

As Paul begins to exhort brethren concerning the debt of love that Christians owe one another, He said, "Owe no man anything." So can we borrow money? The Bible allows lending and borrowing in times of real need (Deut. 15:7-8; Ps. 37:26; Ex. 22:25). But it discourages us from being in debt, for a man's debt would make him servile before the lender (cf. Deut. 15:6; 28:12,44; Prov. 22:7). The Bible also warns against taking responsibility for the debts of others...

A

ccording to John, Jesus Christ, who was with God from all eternity (v.1), "was in the world". This certainly refers to Christ's incarnation, coming to this world in the form of a man, and dwelling among men. The One, who was invisible to man, has revealed Himself to them. What a great wonder it was that the eternal Son of God has come into this world! He was in this world, which was "made by him...

Not only the younger Christians should submit unto the elder, but all should submit one to another. This is a very remarkable instruction that, if practised by everyone in the church, would help her to enjoy great peace and progress in the work of the Lord. It is the golden rule for church unity and the kingdom advancement...

T

his saying is set in the context of having wise counsellors. There is great profitability in listening to men who can provide wise advice about matters of life, whether it be spiritual or mundane matters.

It is also God's will concerning us that every Christian be wise in speech to exhort and edify one another. God has great expectation concerning His people's communication with one another. He wants them to cultivate wise speech...


Colossians 1:11

Read: Colossians 1:11

This is a portion of Paul's prayer for Colossian Christians. What a needful prayer! Paul was aware that a Christian, unless endued with strength of his Almighty God, will not be able to persevere in his life of faith and service. Every Christian needs to be empowered with the Omnipotent's   strength, which is infinitely greater than his own strength. A Christian's personal strength is not equal to his challenges. Jesus said, "without me ye can do nothing...


1 Corinthians 15:55

Read: 1 Corinthians 15:55

Two types of feelings about death is expressed in these rhetorical questions by the Apostle Paul - the feelings of those who have not received the Lord Jesus as their Saviour, and also of those who have received Him by faith as their Saviour.

People's general sentiment about death is described here as something with a "sting" that results in "victory" over us. The allusion seems to be the venomous sting of a reptile...

Read: 1 Peter 1:25

This verse begins with a solemn declaration about the enduring nature of Holy Scripture. The adversative "But" at the beginning of the verse indicates that the enduring nature of Scripture is presented in contrast to the withering nature of man expressed in the previous verse. Man and his glory perish like the flower of grass, but God's Word abides and lives forever...
