Footnote Friday!

John 6:63—It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words which I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.

Footnote 3—The Greek word for words, here and in v. 68, is rhema, which denotes the instant and present spoken word. It differs from logos (used for Word in 1:1), which denotes the constant word. Here the words follows the Spirit. The Spirit is living and real, yet He is very mysterious, intangible, and difficult for people to apprehend; the words, however, are substantial. First, the Lord indicated that for giving life He would become the Spirit. Then He said that the words He speaks are spirit and life. This shows that His spoken words are the embodiment of the Spirit of life. He is now the life-giving Spirit in resurrection, and the Spirit is embodied in His words. When we receive His words by exercising our spirit, we get the Spirit, who is life.

Footnote Friday!

1 John 1:2—(And the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and report to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us);

Footnote 3—Lit., the life the eternal. This life denotes the divine spiritual life, not the human soulish life or the physical life (see verse 17 note 4 in Rom. 5). Eternal denotes not only duration of time, which is everlasting, without end, but also quality, which is absolutely perfect and complete, without any shortage or defect. Such an expression emphasizes the eternal nature of the divine life, the life of the eternal God. The apostles saw this eternal life and testified and reported it to people. Their experience was not of any doctrine but of Christ, the Son of God, as the eternal life, and their testimony and preaching were not of theology or biblical knowledge but of such a solid life.

On the blog today we take a look at three huge problems created when we sin and the unique solution to each one—the blood of Jesus.

The precious blood of Christ is the unique solution to three huge problems our sins create between us and three parties: God, ourselves, and Satan.

Footnote Friday!

1 Timothy 6:12—Fight the good fight of the faith; lay hold on the eternal life, to which you were called and have confessed the good confession before many witnesses.

Footnote 2— I.e., the divine life, the uncreated life of God, which is eternal. Eternal denotes the nature more than the time element of the divine life. To fight the good fight of the faith in the Christian life, and especially in the Christian ministry, we need to lay hold on this divine life, not trusting in our human life. Hence, in 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, eternal life is stressed again and again (1:16; 6:19; 2 Tim. 1:1, 10; Titus 1:2; 3:7). To carry out God's economy concerning the church, as seen in 1 Timothy, to confront the downward trend of the church's decline, as seen in 2 Timothy, and to maintain good order in the church, as seen in Titus, this life is a prerequisite.

When Jesus Christ lived on the earth, many people knew about Him and even joined the crowds around Him. So how did one ill woman stand out from the crowd?

Read about this account in the gospel on the blog, 
biblesforamerica.org/the-healing-touch/
As Jesus made his way through the throngs of people surrounding him, he suddenly stopped and asked, “Who touched Me?” It seemed obvious to His disciples, so they answered that it was the crowds pressing upon Him...

Like mirrors, we’re always reflecting something. Maybe we’re occupied with our favorite television show, a good book, or even a social cause, and we spend our time beholding, or looking at, all things related to it. 

An easy way to find out what we’re beholding is to ask ourselves, where is my heart engaged?

Read more in today's blog post, http://biblesforamerica.org/2-cor-3-18-mirror-affects-your-christian-life/.
In 2 Corinthians 3:18, Paul likens us to mirrors and gives us a powerful secret to the Christian life. Read this post to find out more.

It seems daily we’re assailed by harrowing reports of conflict, hatred, and violence between people, both here domestically and abroad. These events are heartbreaking, disturbing, unsettling.

As believers in Christ, what should our reaction be?

We seem to hear terrible reports of violence and hatred almost daily. How do we react as Christians?

What do the words born again mean? Some think it’s a figure of speech, like the saying turn over a new leaf, meaning you set out to be a better person. But being born again is more profound than that.

Read today's post on the blog discussing what really happens when a person gets saved. http://biblesforamerica.org/what-happens-when-person-gets-saved/
Many of us know salvation includes forgiveness of sins and deliverance from eternal perdition, but what actually happens within a person when they get saved?
