Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” [John 6:35] If we go out to eat at a local restaurant and order our main entrée, when they bring out our salad as a first course, they might also bring out a basket with bread in it. This is just in preparation

2 Timothy 3:16 says that all Scripture is “God-breathed.” God’s Word sometimes gives us a warning, a word of encouragement, or a lesson for life—His story is written with love as a guide for life, “so that the people of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” He conversed with Adam in the garden. He told Noah to build an ark. He spoke to Moses in a burning bush.
What is worship? Have you ever really thought about it? Have you come to grips with what worship is in your own life? The funny thing about trying to define worship is that if you asked 10 different people, you would get 10 different answers; and to some degree, each would be right as they would be giving a shade of meaning to worship.

It is likely you have met people who are always looking for a fight especially in today’s world. They never met an argument they did not want to join.

"Therefore, everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24-25) Jesus tells a short and important parable in which the characters are two builders
“For such a time as this.”—It’s a phrase tossed around frequently, often without much thought to the original meaning or context in which it was said. Many people quote Mordecai’s rebuke to Esther as a life-verse representing power and favor. But what did this phrase really mean? When we look at the life of Esther throughout the book titled in her name, this phrase actually refers to Esther being scolded
“Jesus said to the disciples, ‘I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now’”. (John 16:12) When I hear Jesus talking about the unbearable things of life I want to run away. But I can’t. It’s too late—There’s nowhere to go. As painful as it is to remember and as difficult as it is to talk about, I understand what Jesus means when he
Paul, undoubtedly the greatest missionary of the early Christian Church, brought forth God’s message and was received by some with great joy, yet by others ridiculed and made fun of. Like the messenger, the gospel message often acts like a double-edged sword. It can function like a surgical scalpel bringing deliverance or cut like a knife bringing devastation. All of this becomes pointedly clear on the Day of Pentecost. When
