Ruth 3:1-18 Message

Ruth 3:1-18 Message

This Kindness Is Greater Than That Which You Showed Earlier Ruth 3:1-18 (K. V. 3:10) “‘The Lord bless you, my daughter,’ he replied. ‘This kindness is greater than that which you showed earlier: You have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor.’” We are at the peak of Ruth’s study. Last week, we learned how God knows our faith and rewards those who honestly seek him. We also learned how Boaz foreshadows Jesus, our ultimate guardian-redeemer. Today,…

Ruth 1:1-22 Message

Naomi and Ruth Ruth 1:1-22, Key Verse 1:16 “But Ruth replied, ‘Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.’” Today we begin our study of the short Old Testament book of Ruth. The book of Ruth is important because (1) it shows the historical connection between the time of the judges and…

Matthew 27:57-28:20

THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS Matthew 27:57-28:20, (K. V.: 28:6) “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” Praise God for helping us to finish Matthew’s Gospel study! It’s been an arduous year-long struggle in which we have received abundant grace. Now we are at the culmination of the study. From Msn. Gideon’s message last week, we learned Jesus did not save himself but stayed on the cross so as…

Matthew 27:1-56 Message

THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS Matthew 27:1-56, Key verse 46  “About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?’ (which means ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’)” In the last passage, we learned that Jesus is pretty awesome, sharing his humanity with his disciples; sorrowful and troubled heart, yet overcoming himself through prayer not once but three times until he is ready to face the trials, being deserted by his beloved…

Matthew 26:31-75 Message

YET NOT AS I WILL, BUT AS YOU WILL Matthew 26:31-75, Key Verse: 26:39 “Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.’” In today’s passage we see Jesus’ betrayal, arrest and trial. When we observe how Jesus faces these events, we really see his kingdom and his kingship. Jesus also tries to…

JESUS’ BLOOD OF THE COVENANT Matthew 26:1-30, (K. V.: 26:8) “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Happy Belated 4th of July, the Birthday to America! On 4th, we pay tributes to our founding fathers and remember what they did for us. Similarly, today, through this passage, we’d like to pay our tributes to Jesus and remember what he has done for us. He has established the blood covenant…

WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT Matthew 25:1-46, Key verse 31-32 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.” From the last passage, chapter 24, Jesus taught his disciples the signs of the end of the age, his second coming,…

Matthew 24:1-51 Message

The Son of Man Is Coming Matthew 24:1-51, Key Verse 24:30b “And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.” Today we study part one of the Olivet Discourse, so-called because Jesus spoke it while overlooking Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. As his death approached, Jesus predicted the destruction of the Jewish Temple and his second coming, and taught his…

Matthew 23:1-39 Message

JESUS REBUKES HYPOCRISY Matthew 23:1-39, (K. V.: 23:3) “So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.” Last week, we learned that we have dual responsibilities as earthly and heavenly citizens. We were also told that God is not the God of the dead but of the living. Finally, the greatest and the second great commandments we learned: that we love God wholeheartedly…

LOVE GOD AND YOUR NEIGHBOR Matthew 22:15-46, Key verse: 37-39 “Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” From the last passage, we learned that Jesus is the stone rejected by the Jews but God made him the cornerstone of the world salvation. Those who accept Jesus as their…
