Daniel 8:1-27

I am not sure if I feel more like a sports commentator or a Bible preacher! Why? Daniel has another vivid and descriptive vision. This time it’s the Bucks against the Rams with a surprise ending! This chapter, like Daniel chapter 7, is full of action. The ram seems unstoppable, but wait—out of nowhere comes…

Daniel 7:1-28

If you could know the future, would you want to? Before you answer, think about it. Maybe you would want to clarify your answer based on whether it’s a good or bad future! “Yes, if such and such is true…“—or “no, unless…” You get the idea. Now hash that out in your mind! If you…

Daniel 6:1-28

If you play a little “word association” and say the word “Daniel“, the immediate response for many would be “lion’s den“. Chapter 6 is that well known Bible chapter that holds this famous story.

Daniel 4:1-27

As we enter the much-anticipated fourth chapter of Daniel, sadly we are forced to break the chapter into two parts. We will look at verses 1-27 first, followed by the conclusion next time. Absent from chapter three and the fiery furnace, Daniel is back on the scene and gets another chance at dream interpretation for…

1 Corinthians 4:6-21

This week we continue our 1st Corinthians study in chapter four and finish the chapter together. Paul has been dealing with the immaturity and pride that have caused division in the church there in Corinth.  They, like so many, have developed an over-inflated view of themselves that is totally inconsistent with the Spirit of God. They…

Romans 12:9-21

This section of Romans 12 is an extremely practical passage revealing God’s outline for relationships in His family and beyond. Through these verses we see what the church can be when our opinion of ourselves is lowered because our opinion of God is elevated: genuine love, family-like affection for each other, continuing in prayer, blessing those…
