    Put on the Sandals of Peace (Ephesians 6:15)

    Put on the Sandals of Peace (Ephesians 6:15)

    In Ephesians 6:15, we are told that peace is like the sandal of a Roman soldier that enabled the solider to stand his ground. The phrase "having put on" (hypodesamenoi) is found in the middle voice and indicates the part we play in having peace that comes from God's Word.

    Righteous Living = Persecution (Matthew 5:10)

    Righteous Living = Persecution (Matthew 5:10)

    In Matthew 5:10 it says Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake. The word “righteousness” here is dikaiosynes. Here it means a whole life that is oriented toward God. It is set against the establishment of the systems of this world. And, because of this, it is easily noticeable and stands out. Because of this, it attracts persecution.

    The Beatitudes part 3 - Those Who Mourn (Matthew 5:4)

    The Beatitudes part 3 - Those Who Mourn (Matthew 5:4)

    In Matthew 5:4, Jesus says, “blessed” (well off) are those who mourn. The Greek word for “mourn” here is “penthountes” which means passionate grief that leads to action. It entails weeping over sin, being saddened by the loss of our own innocence, and being distraught by the wickedness in the world.

    The Beatitudes part 2 - Poor In Spirit (Matthew 5:3)

    The Beatitudes part 2 - Poor In Spirit (Matthew 5:3)

    Being "poor in spirit,” as in Matthew 5:3, means feeling our need for God and reaching out to himwith the total trust that he alone can supply what we lack. This term “poor in spirit” (ptochoi to pneumati) comes from Ps. 33:19 in the Greek Old Testament. It means one who humbly trusts God in their impoverished state.

    The Beatitudes part 1 (Matthew 5:3-11)

    The Beatitudes part 1 (Matthew 5:3-11)

    In Matthew 5:3-11, we find the Beatitudes. The beatitudes display the attitude of a true disciple of Jesus, one who has chosen the way of the Kingdom over the way of the world. A disciple who practices this will be “makarioi.” This is often translated “happy,” “blessed,” and it describes one who is well off, has a deep inner joy, and is even to be envied.

    Watch Out for Hazards! (Philippians 3:2)

    Watch Out for Hazards! (Philippians 3:2)

    As believers, we should endeavor to partner with the Holy Spirit so that he can point out potential hazards along the way. This is so essential to our victory as Christians that God commands us to do this in a very strong way. In Philippians 3:2, the apostle Paul tells the Philippian church to be on the “look out” for harmful things three times. He repeats the command “blepete” back to back to back. It’s like saying “beware! Beware! Beware!” The force of this would caution any reader that there are going to be traps that come along the way and, unless we are paying attention to the Holy Spirit, we might miss them and fall into them.

I love the way Chris gives attention to scripture and allows scripture to speak for itself versus him having his own ideas and trying to make the scripture fit what he already thinks. Chris is a true teacher and his work is so encouraging! So thankful for his work for the Kingdom.
