“About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water” (Matt.14:25 NLT). Jesus came to His disciples in the storm. And that is a time He come to His own today. He makes Himself more real to us in a time of trouble and sorrow. I don’t know why He waits until midnight, until the waves are rolling, but perhaps that is the only time we will listen to Him. When the storms of life are beating upon our little boat, our hearts are ready for His presence. — J. Vernon McGee

In every season of life we can know joy in Christ
We are saved by God’s grace, through faith. We are kept by the power of God. Faith accepts God because He is God. Faith accepts Jesus because of what God tells us about Him in his Word. Faith believes without seeing, feeling, tasting, or smelling. Faith does not ask for proof.
“In the beginning God”. . .I have written in the margin of my Bible, “I believe all the rest.” I may not understand it — I may never understand it. . .But the just shall live by faith — not by wisdom nor by understanding.
All we need is the Holy Spirit in our heart by faith — and if He abides in our heart by faith we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ who loved us, because we are kept by the power of God; and “this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.”
To master temptation, let Christ master you
Today I am running a special post for Wednesday. Usually I repost my post from over at the Isaiah 53:5 Project, but not today. I didn’t actually post one there yesterday, and I want to leave this coming Monday free for the start of a new series.
So, today I will be providing a summary with links to the recent series:
Was Jesus God?
There will be a short excerpt from the post and a link to follow. Blessing and Enjoy!
When we state that we believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, we are simply saying that we believe that Jesus Christ is God. That may seem odd in light of the fact that Biblical Christianity also believes Jesus to have been human. One may wonder and be curious how both statements can possibly be true. We believe Jesus Christ to have been both 100% human and 100% God…

Today we will be wrapping up our study on the Deity of Jesus. We will close with what others had to say about this subject, or the thoughts they expressed concerning it. We won’t just talk about what those friendly to our Lord said, thought, and wrote; Jesus’ enemies also expressed themselves concerning the claims Jesus made.
The Writers of the Bible Clearly Describe Jesus as Being Divine
Time and time again, various writers of Holy Scripture describe the Divinity of Jesus Christ. We are working under the premise here that The Bible as we have it today is, in fact, inspired by God. Therefore if the writers of Scripture call Jesus God, then it is just as if God the Father called Jesus God. The only way to escape this conclusion is to deny that ,as Paul told Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is given…

It’s Monday morning, and time for us to continue our study on the deity of Jesus Christ. For those who need a recap of where we left off, it can be found here on Was Jesus Really God-Part 6.
Last week we discussed some of the statements Jesus made which, while not being the statement “I am God,” were certainly claims of being equal to and of the same substance as God the Father. We also discussed his claims of son-ship with The Father and how, in that day and time, to be someone’s son was to basically be equal with them; obviously a claim equality with God is in practicality the same as a claim of being God.
Today we are going to cover some instances where we see Jesus’ actions indicate He understood His own divine nature.
Jesus laid claim to many of the attributes of God. Jesus…
