Ministries of the Holy Spirit

John 16:4b-15 4b I did not tell you this from the beginning because I was with you, 5 but now I am going to him who sent me. None of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ 6 Rather, you are filled with grief because I have said these things. 7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he…

Betrayed and Denied

God’s Evaluation of Evil

Habakkuk 2:6-20 6 “Will not all of them taunt him with ridicule and scorn, saying, “‘Woe to him who piles up stolen goods    and makes himself wealthy by extortion!    How long must this go on?’7 Will not your creditors suddenly arise?    Will they not wake up and make you tremble?    Then you will become their prey.8 Because you have plundered many nations,    the peoples who are left will plunder you.For you have shed human blood;    you have destroyed lands and cities and everyone in them. 9 “Woe to him who builds his…

A Crisis of Faith

Habakkuk 1:1-4 1 The prophecy that Habakkuk the prophet received. 2 How long, Lord, must I call for help,    but you do not listen?Or cry out to you, “Violence!”    but you do not save?3 Why do you make me look at injustice?    Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?Destruction and violence are before me;    there is strife, and conflict abounds.4 Therefore the law is paralyzed,    and justice never prevails.The wicked hem in the righteous,    so that justice is perverted.

Light and Darkness, Sin and Forgiveness

1 John 1:5-2:2 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 8 If we claim to be without…

Father Wisdom’s Warning

Proverbs 1:8-19 8 Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction    and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.9 They are a garland to grace your head    and a chain to adorn your neck. 10 My son, if sinful men entice you,    do not give in to them.11 If they say, “Come along with us;    let’s lie in wait for innocent blood,    let’s ambush some harmless soul;12 let’s swallow them alive, like the grave,    and whole, like those who go down to the pit;13 we will get all sorts of valuable things    and fill our houses with plunder;14 cast lots with…
