How the Reviled Become What They Really Are

Published by: Bryan DeWire
September 20, 2013

Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.—Matthew 5:11–12

A Proverbs-Driven Life

Published by: Sam Crabtree
September 19, 2013

I recently read Anthony Selvaggio’s book by that title. Here are some excerpts.

Wise living and wise speech are essential and inseparable.

Live in light of what is really true.

At the heart of godly wisdom is an ability not to become distracted from those things that are most important.

[The book of] Proverbs offers us future-oriented guidance.

Pressing in on Jesus

You would think that September’s Family Discipleship Newsletter would be primarily about recruiting, as our planned start up is so close, but as important as that is, it is my joy to point you to something else found in Luke 5:1–11. My hope is that this article would be used by God to help you depend more fully upon Jesus, trusting in Him and longing for Him, for He is coming back again to save those who are “eagerly waiting for Him” (Hebrews 9:28).

What One Fact?

Published by: Sam Crabtree
September 16, 2013

When Peter says, “Do not overlook this one fact,” what one fact does he have in mind?

[  ] A.  You were ransomed from the futile ways of your forefathers.

[  ] B.  He has caused us to be born again to a living hope.

[  ] C.  He committed no sin. Neither was deceit found in his mouth.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.

They entice unsteady souls.—2 Peter 2:14 

Unsteady souls are more easily enticed. 

What can be done to steady a soul?

The Life of the Blessed

Published by: Bryan DeWire
September 6, 2013

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.—Matthew 5:3–6

Who are the blessed? “The poor in spirit.” “Those who mourn.” “The meek.” “Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.” And so on.

Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Patiently Wait for the Joy to Come

Published by: Bryan DeWire
August 23, 2013

Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.—Psalm 30:4–5

When I first started meditating on the Fighter Verse for this week, it struck me with a note of dissonance.
