Christ, the Life Changer (Col 4:7-18)

Jesus Christ is completely sufficient for changing people from useless sinners into useful saints. A radical life-change that occurs from fellowship with Christ is something that happens to all Christians. Nobody who meets Jesus remains the person they were before. In the case of the men listed in these verses, they were transformed into servants of Christ who ministered on behalf of the church in various ways. While much of what is written about them could be said of any Christian, the comments are particularly true for those who serve the church in official ways, such as deacons. In this closing section, we learn that Christian servants are beloved and faithful encouragers, they are men of second chances, they are men of reconciliation, and they are hardworking strugglers. However, one of the names given serves as a sober warning that we do not fall away. The letter then closes with a final charge for all of us.

Oh No, Not Again (Gen 9:18-10:32)

In many ways, this section of Scripture before us is almost like a rerun of what has come before. After destroying most of the inhabitants of the earth because of mankind’s sin, God has appointed a first family to go forth and multiply. However, this family fell into sin just as Adam and Eve before them. Sin came first through a father’s folly, and secondly through a son’s sin, as ruin once again enters into the story of the human race. A blessing and curse is pronounced, just as we saw in the Garden of Eden. This is, as with Adam’s children, as prophecy of an enduring family feud. This is followed by a list of the descendants of the new first family with hints at the strife that would continue to exist between them.

The Profit of Forgiveness (Phlm 1-25)

As we read this plea from Paul to Philemon to forgive his runaway slave, we are able to learn some of what God would have us to know about forgiveness. First, we see the spiritual character of one who forgives; second, the profit to one who forgives; and third, the motives of one who forgives.

Taste and See (Psalm 34)

Here we find David writing out of a time of affliction, yet nevertheless giving thanks to God. In fact, he calls upon all the saints to join him in thanksgiving, giving us reasons to do so. Then he invites us to taste and see that the Lord is good. When we do so, we will properly fear the Lord who hears and delivers us from all distresses because he first delivered his righteous One from death. We shall end with one final call to taste and see the grace of God and to thank him for that grace.

God’s Covenant with Noah (Gen 8:1-9:17)

After spending a year trapped in an ark atop an ocean of death, Noah probably wondered the same thing. As we shall see, the Lord did remember Noah, just as he will always remember us. God remembered and delivered that faithful man and his family, and in response Noah offered a sacrifice of thanksgiving. That is the second point to consider, the offering up of thanksgiving. Then God ratified his covenant of peace with Noah. He had begun making covenant with Noah back in Genesis 6:18, but now he adds details that involve every one of us, topping it off with the sign of the rainbow.
