Poor Excuses? (May 17, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:21 PM

How does the Church deal with poverty? How do we understand what the Bible says about care for the poor and how it says, “If any will not work, neither let him eat”? As I conclude the second volume of Proverbially Speaking, we look at “Poor Excuses” and God’s Answers. Like so much in Scripture, we are called to a balance we struggle to achieve.

What is a Resurrection Body? (April 19, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:56 PM

What does it mean to be resurrected? We have lots of ideas, but are they what God is actually promising? As we continue through 1 Corinthians 15 this week, we get to that central point — and struggle — with the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead. It’s so important to understand so that we can approach life and death with the hope God gives us.

52 Verses, 52 Books, 52 Weeks (Week 16: Joel)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:20 PM

Do the Bible’s prophecies of the end times tell us anything in our present situations? Yes, yes, indeed they do and I think about that as I turn to Joel this week. One of the things I really like about doing this 52 week journey wherein each week we look at a different book of the Bible is that it is making me share from books of the Bible I don’t turn to very often, such as Joel. But all of God’s Word is “profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Tim 3:16 ESV) and the book of Joel has reassuring things for us to hear!
