In the first couple of chapters in Exodus, we read that the Israelites were suffering under the rule of the Egyptians, and the king ordered for all the Hebrew baby boys to be tossed into the Nile. It was at this time that Moses was born; and he was lovely in the sight of God, […]
In Numbers 12:3, Moses is credited with being the most humble man on earth. In Hebrews, he is included in what we call the heroes of the faith. Moses is probably one of the most well-known names from the Bible. Many of us are familiar with the scriptures in Exodus such as Moses’ encounter with […]
This week, I have something a little different for you.

Last week in part 6, we looked at what it means to be pure in heart and see God.

In part 5, we talked about receiving mercy from God and showing it to others (Matthew 5:7). To recap, after we realize our brokenness and need for a Savior, mourn over our sin, submit ourselves to God, hunger for God’s righteousness, and receive God’s mercy, then He will make in us a pure heart, which […]
Last week we looked at “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness…” In quick review, we realize our brokenness and inability to save ourselves, mourn over our sin, submit ourselves to God, and hunger and thirst for His righteousness. After that, we begin living a life that reflects His character, which is what […]
Last week, we looked at “blessed are the meek.” After realizing our inability to do anything to save ourselves and mourning over our sin, one would have meekness, which is power surrendered to God’s control (You can read Part 3 here). This week we are looking at Matthew 5:6. “Blessed are those who hunger and […]
