Thirty Days in 1 John 3 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 11: Know

John speaks a lot about knowing in the book of 1 John! It makes sense for him to speak of knowing and what we can know as he seeks to warn his readers of the false teachers who would like to lead them astray. In this short letter of only 115 verses, John speaks of knowing 37 times! He uses two different Greek words for knowing. We’re going to take a few minutes to look at those […]

Thirty Days in Philippians 2 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 25: Murmurings and Disputings

Paul has given us a lot to think about (and do): He’s exhorted us to be likeminded with our fellow believers. He’s encouraged us to set aside rivalry and conceit. He’s told us to imitate Jesus and His willingness to set aside His own rights in order to serve others. He’s assured us that God was pleased with Jesus’ sacrifice and placed Him as Lord over all creation. He’s pointed […]

Thirty Days in Philippians 2 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 23: Verse 13

Yesterday we took a break to look for because and for. We did this because for is the opening word of verse 13. It links verse 13 with verse 12. For introduces the reason for working out our salvation. We are supposed to work out our own salvation because God is working in us to will and to work for His good pleasure. We’re putting our salvation into action because God is working in us. Let’s look at this verse in […]
