Do you believe God sees you and cares for you? Do you believe He is interested in your life? He sees you and cares for you when you are worshipping and desiring to please Him, but also when you have been mistreated like Hagar, when you are needy like Jerusalem, when you’re in dark distress like Isaiah, and even when you’re hiding in sin like Adam and Eve. He’s looking for us, not to condemn us, but to invite us to be reconciled to Him. He is the God of all seasons. Not because we’re wonderful, but because He is wonderful and has bought us with the precious blood of Jesus. Do you see the Lord? Additional scriptures: Luke 19:41, Isaiah 6:1-5, Matthew 3:13-17, Acts 7:55-56, Genesis 3:8-13, John 3:16.

Just as Jesus was tempted by the devil when He was very hungry in the desert, Satan tempts us at our weakest moments, and questions our identity in Christ. And just as Jesus modelled for us, we can fight back effectively by using the powerful weapon the Lord has given us: His Word, the Bible. We can overcome the devil’s attacks in Jesus’ name by standing on the authority, power, and presence of God’s Word. To use this weapon, we must study it regularly and know it. In this world of passing fads and unstable times, God’s Word lasts forever and is our rock to keep us steady. Additional scriptures: Isaiah 55:6, Deuteronomy 8:3, 6:16, John 1:1-5.

Anger is a powerful emotion, which can be justified or unjustified. Even Jesus felt anger, but in His case it resulted in good actions promoting life, truth, healing and purity. This is because He was completely yielded to the Holy Spirit, walking in step with the Spirit, and He demonstrated self-control and good judgment even in the midst of anger. In the book of James we are commanded to be slow to anger. As we are not perfect like Jesus, we need to address our anger immediately, before we let it turn into sin. We need to be prepared to reign ourselves in with the self-control provided by the Holy Spirit working in us. God’s Word is more powerful than our anger, and can help us be set free from it. We must be honest, acknowledge if we have a problem with anger, confess it and receive (and give) forgiveness and restoration, with the help of the Holy Spirit and godly friends. As Proverbs says, self-control is better than conquering a city! Additional scriptures: Genesis 4:6-7, Ephesians 4:26, Psalm 4:4, Mark 3:1-5, Proverbs 14:17, Hebrews 4:12, 1 John 1:9, James 4:6, Proverbs 19:11, Galatians 6:1, Proverbs 16:32

Our words are powerful, whether for good or evil. Are we using them to build up, encourage, and strengthen others? Are we making sure our words count for God’s Kingdom? James tells us to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. The tongue is small but has the power to direct (like a bit or rudder), destroy (like fire or a poisonous animal), or delight (like a fountain or tree). In order to be able to hold our tongue and use it well, it really helps if we are full of the Word of God. Additional Scriptures: Matthew 12:36, Romans 10:9-10, Romans 10:17, Proverbs 10:19-20, Proverbs 17:27, Proverbs 18:4, Proverbs 10:11, Romans 15:32, Isaiah 6:5-7, Mark 14:69-72, Acts 2:1-4, Acts 4:8, 31, Acts 6:8-10

In Romans and Galatians, Paul gives us some very practical instructions for how to respond to challenges in our lives. Are we facing persecution? Respond with blessing. Are we facing evil? Overcome it with good. Has someone done us wrong? Leave room for God to take care of the situation. When we respond to negative influences in the opposite spirit, we are wielding an important weapon God gives us to fight our daily spiritual battles. And as we submit to His Spirit and walk in step with Him, learning patience and self-control, He will step in and fight on our behalf. Additional Scriptures: Ephesians 4:15, 1 Peter 2:21-24, James 1:19-20, 2 Cor 13:14, James 4:6, Ephesians 5:21-33, John 2:15-17

The Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, or like a precious and costly pearl. Have you found and seen the treasure? Have you bought the pearl, which requires sacrifice? Some stumble across the treasure, while others purposely seek it out. If you’ve found it, do you still feel the incredible value of it, or has your enthusiasm waned? Jesus is our ultimate treasure, worth more than all we have, and He gives joy in our hearts. Will you make way in your life to take hold of the treasure and make Jesus number one, for the first time, or once again? Additional scriptures: Acts 2:1-21, Joel 2:28-32

We are all in a spiritual battle every day. The devil is real. Under spiritual attack, step one is to submit to God, and step two is to resist the devil with the spiritual weapons given to us by the Holy Spirit. We need to know the Word of God and invite His Spirit to have control of our lives. It is key that we understand our position in God, that we are His chosen and beloved children. What are we doing to draw nearer to God and receive His strength for the battle? As we submit to God, we receive His covering of protection, and as we increasingly give control of our hearts and lives to the Holy Spirit and His fruit, we are better able to resist the devil’s attacks and stand our ground in Christ’s power. Additional scriptures: Galatians 5:22-25, Ephesians 5:21-22, Hebrews 13:17, Ephesians 6:1, 1 Peter 5:8-9, 2 Corinthians 10:3-6, 1 John 5:4, Ephesians 1:5, Romans 8:17, Ephesians 4:26-27

Whether we are under spiritual attack from within (our own prideful human nature), or from without (from the devil, our enemy), or whether we are simply receiving fatherly discipline from God, the first step to take is to submit to God. This is unpopular because it is offensive to our pride. Yet the way we show real love for the Father is by obedience and submission. Submitting to God doesn’t enslave us, rather it sets us free. The devil loves it when we don’t submit to God, and we try to do things on our own terms. Submission is a form of trust. When we are under attack, full surrender to God is the first step towards victory. Additional scriptures: Ephesians 5:21-22, Colossians 2:15, 1 Peter 5:8, Ephesians 4:27, 1 Kings 19:1-5, 1 John 2:16, 2 Corinthians 12:7, Hebrews 12:5-6, Matthew 16:21-23, Hebrews 10:10, 1 John 4:4, Psalm 31:20, John 14:15

If anything proves the Kingship of Jesus Christ, it is His resurrection from the dead. The resurrection is a radical happening, with implications for everything Jesus claimed about Who He is. It demands a radical response from people of integrity. Both His death and His resurrection are central and crucial. Christianity is deeply miraculous and supernatural -- not a theory or a religion, but a radical lifestyle of following Christ. If you believe Jesus rose from the dead, it changes everything. Love triumphs over hatred. Suffering does not have the final word. If Jesus rose from the dead, we need to listen to Him. His radical message, that He is the only way, the only truth, the only source of true life, requires a radical response. Let us “go and tell” what Jesus has done for us, and then love and pray for the curious, that they may change from curious to convinced, and then to committed, loving the truth that transforms. Additional scriptures: Colossians 3:1, Isaiah 41:10, Mark 8:31-33, Luke 22:42-43, John 11:25-26, John 14:6, John 2:19-22, 1 Corinthians 15:17-20

How do you explain Good Friday? Why is it still so significant today? Jesus’ life for ours, Jesus’ life in ours, and our life for others. Jesus is the spotless Lamb who was offered for the sins of mankind. He died not as a martyr, but as a Savior, as a substitute, as a sacrifice on our behalf. He took the shame, received judgment in our place, and freed us from the curse of breaking the law, and from the sting of death. This divine exchange took away our sins and gave us His holiness instead. We sinned, but His righteousness is credited to us through faith in Him. As a result of the cross, we are free and no longer under judgment, but under God’s grace and favour. God now smiles on us because of Jesus, and adopts us as His sons and daughters, when we acknowledge Him as Lord. Additional Scriptures: Isaiah 53:5-7, Matthew 27:46, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 8:3, John 3:16, Romans 6:22, Colossians 1:22-23, 28-29
