Psalm 30:5 – For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favour lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. In this study, we will break the verse up into its four main phrases, and digest the message into encouragement and comfort for those whose are defeated and heartbroken.
John 6:27 – Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval. In this study, we will examine Jesus’ explanation that we should not work for physical and worldly needs and try to understand it in a practical manner.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 – He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. In this study we will once again reflect on the concept of eternity and how we as humans find it difficult to reconcile our concept of time to God’s concept of eternity.
John 13:1 – It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. In this study we will reflect on the timescale that the Christian love runs on – eternity.
1 Corinthians 13:12 – For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. In this study we will examine the metaphor in this verse and how it applies to issues like knowledge and love and eternity.
Proverbs 11:7 -When a wicked man dies, his hope perishes; all he expected from his power comes to nothing. Solomon here departs from his norm and emphasizes on the same point rather than use an antithesis to parallel his point. In this study we will look at the relevance of this emphasis, and ponder a little on the Christian hope.
