Discouraged? Depressed?

Discouraged? Depressed?

A little more than a week before his death and resurrection, Jesus traveled to Jerusalem for the last time. While on the way, Jesus told his disciples, once again, that he would be “handed over to the chief priests and experts in the law, and they will condemn him to death. They will hand him over to the Gentiles to mock, flog and crucify him. On the third day he will be raised.” Matthew 20:18-19 (EHV)

Here’s a Bible verse that came up in a prison Bible study recently: “If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse.” (Proverbs 27:14) Maybe that sounds a little odd at first. But one person in that Bible study said, “This tells me that God knows me really well, and he cares about me.”

Not Just Routine

Not Just Routine

I was very pleased (and mildly surprised) a few weeks ago when Fred’s name appeared on the list for our Bible study in prison. I was even more pleased when Fred actually joined our study of God’s Word that day. He had been a very faithful member of our Bible study group before the Covid-19 pandemic but had not rejoined our group when our study of God’s Word resumed more than six months ago.

The Gift of Spiritual Discernment

This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. 14 The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1 Co. 2:13-14).
