What is in a Name? by Alex Lancaster

What is in a Name?

Alex Lancaster

 

        Over the past few weeks, I have been reading Twelve Ordinary Men by John Macarthur.  In this book, Macarthur discuses the twelve apostles and views them as the ordinary people that they were. He devotes each chapter to a different apostle starting with Peter continuing to Judas Iscariot and describing their qualities and traits.  With Peter, Macarthur describes his leadership and outspokenness.  He discusses that Peter was one of the most outspoken apostles and was the one to always ask questions.  Jesus also gave him the nickname “Peter.”  His first name was actually Simon and after his nickname was allocated to him he went by Simon Peter.  The name Peter in Greek is Petros meaning “Rock”.  The Lord called Peter by his nickname in order to give him the courage and acceptance he needed to carry on the teachings of the Lord. The Lord would call Peter by “Simon” when he was not performing the right way and Peter knew this when the name Simon was used.

We Have the Program and the Tickets but… by Mike King

We Have the Program and the Tickets but…

Mike King

        In 1958, Rogers & Hammerstein produced a Pulitzer Prize winning musical.  It was an adaptation of James A. Michener’s best-selling novel, Tales of the South Pacific.  The plot had a WWII setting with a romantic theme. The movie was so popular that people were turned away.  In order to have bragging rights, they bought used programs and ticket stubs and boasted of having seen it. They had the program, tickets, etc., but never saw the musical.

One God And Father Of All – Part 2

God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent.  The omnipotence of God means that He is all powerful.  John stated in Revelation 19:6, “The Lord God omnipotent reigns.” God is almighty!  He is the sovereign ruler of the universe.  His power is absolute and universal.  With God, nothing is impossible (Luke 1:37).  When stated positively, in Matthew 19:26, “With God all things are possible.  That is power that is omnipotent.

One God and Father of Us All- Part 3 by David McDonald

One God and Father of Us All- Part 3

 

David McDonald

 

As we have explored the seventh one of Ephesians 4:4-6, we have observed the omniscience and the omnipotence of God.  God is also omnipresent.  He is present everywhere in the universe.  He is everywhere in this world.  He is everywhere in your home.  He is everywhere in your life.  Because of His omnipresence, He is omniscient.  God is in all of us.  God asked Jeremiah, “Am I a God near at hand,” says the LORD, “And not a God afar off?  Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the LORD; “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” says the LORD (Jer. 23:23-24).

One God and Father of All

The seventh and signature “one” in Ephesians 4 is the “One God and Father.”  There is only one true God.  Humans have had and continue to have many gods.  Humans have made gods out of iron, wood and gold to name a few of the materials.  But man has also made gods out of jobs, money, recreation and such like.
