Real Faith Works: The Power of Words (James 3:1-12)

Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. 2 We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check. 3 When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey…

From Frustration to Faith: Habakkuk 3:1-19

 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. On shigionoth.[a] 2 Lord, I have heard of your fame;     I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day,     in our time make them known;     in wrath remember mercy. 3 God came from Teman,     the Holy One from Mount Paran.[b] His glory covered the heavens     and his praise filled the earth. 4 His splendour…

From Frustration to Faith: Habakkuk 1:12-2:20

Habakkuk’s Second Complaint 12 Lord, are you not from everlasting?     My God, my Holy One, you[a] will never die. You, Lord, have appointed them to execute judgment;     you, my Rock, have ordained them to punish. 13 Your eyes are too pure to look on evil;     you cannot tolerate wrongdoing. Why then do you tolerate the treacherous?     Why are you silent while the wicked     swallow…

From Frustration to Faith: Habakkuk 1:1-11

The prophecy that Habakkuk the prophet received. Habakkuk’s Complaint 2 How long, Lord, must I call for help,     but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, “Violence!”     but you do not save? 3 Why do you make me look at injustice?     Why do you tolerate wrongdoing? Destruction and violence are before me;     there is strife, and conflict abounds. 4 Therefore the…

Sharing Jesus: Matthew 9:35-38

35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are…

The Servant King: Jesus abandoned (Mark 15:33-41)

33 At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. 34 And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).[a] 35 When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.” 36 Someone ran, filled a…

The Servant King: Jesus distressed (Mark 14:32-42)

32 They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” 33 He took Peter, James and John along with him, and he began to be deeply distressed and troubled. 34 “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death,” he said to them. “Stay here and keep watch.” 35 Going a little farther, he…
