Bearing The Reproach Of Christ

Hebrews chapter thirteen is an exhortation to Jewish Christians to leave behind a covenant that was fulfilled and thus obsolete and “ready to vanish away” (Heb 8:13). This would be necessary in order for them to be identified with Jesus Christ. This text also indicates that they could not serve Christ and avoid persecutions. As Jesus took on a heavy burden and paid a high price to sanctify them and us (Heb 13:12; 2:9-11), we too can expect to pay a heavy price to be God’s sanctified people. The Christian must bear His reproach outside the camp before he can worship and serve God acceptably (Heb 13:13; 2 Tim 3:10-12).

Servant, Servants, Service

This series of lessons will delve deeply into the meaning of servitude, i.e., what it means to be a servant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ. A Christian has been called to be like his Master (Matt 10:24-25) and his Master was a Servant (Matt 20:24-28). Through these studies we will be able to adjust our concept of servant with the actual Biblical meaning of the term.

The Difficult Way To Life

Jesus said the path to “life” everlasting is not an easy path to take (cf. Matt 7:13-14). If we are to follow Him, then we must enter that “narrow gate” and follow that “difficult way”. In these lessons we will discuss the difficult things we must do on the “way” that leads to Life.

Things Thomas Missed

Sporadic attendance to church assemblies is a common problem among many Christians. We can take at least two approaches to the problem. We can either remind those who are negligent of God’s warnings regarding forsaking the assembly, or we can show them the benifits they miss by not being present. What did Thomas miss when Jesus appeared to the disciples after His resurrection? We don’t know the reasons, but we do know Thomas missed some valuable things.

The First Day Of The Week

More and more people think of Sunday as being no different from any other day of the week. New Christians often have to make major changes in their weekend habits to be with the saints. But even those of us who have been Christians for a long time need to reconsider what we are doing on the first day of the week. It may be we are neglecting to make that day the special day it ought to be to us.
