Mark 13:32-33 (NIV) - “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

The Scripture is clear when it comes to predicting the end times—we don’t know when it will come. But we are not left there; we are to plan like Jesus is not coming in a thousand years, but we are to live like He is coming tomorrow! This is being on guard for the Lord’s coming.
 

Matthew 13:54-57 (NIV) - Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked. “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his
mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?” And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town and in his own home.”

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

On the outside, Jesus seemed like an ordinary person. The Scriptures tell us that He came from a large family, and that became a point of offense to those who knew Joseph and Mary’s household. We can miss what God is doing because we keep looking for the spectacular when God is using the ordinary in extraordinary ways. It seems to be His good pleasure to use foolish things to confound the wise.

Colossians 1:13-14 (NIV) - For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Notice the term “rescued”. This implies that we couldn’t get ourselves out of our predicament. In other words, we didn’t find God—God found us! His forgiveness of sin was never based upon our ability to get our act together. Our redemption was paid for at the cross, and we should never forget that we have been pulled out of darkness by God’s mercy in Jesus Christ.

Romans 3:19 (NIV) - Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God.

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

There is an inherent sense of right and wrong in every culture. For example, we all know that murder is wrong. This is based upon the law of God that is written in our soul. It is amazing to think that the issues that we rail against as being wrong or unjust reveal a code that God has put in the fabric of the universe. Yet a clear look at that code will lead us to the conclusion that we fall short of the very standards that we put upon others. We are all guilty, so we all need mercy. This is what God provides in Jesus Christ—the One who fulfilled the law so we could know God’s mercy.

Hebrews 13:1-2 (NIV) - Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

Isaiah 14:24 (NIV) - The Lord Almighty has sworn, “Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will happen.

Isaiah 41:4 (NIV) - Who has done this and carried it through, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord—with the first of them and with the last—I am he.”

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

One of the main ways that God identifies Himself in the Old Testament is as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In other words, God proclaims his faithfulness toward multiple generations. You may be the first Christian in your family line, or the Abraham in your family—pray for the next generation in your household. No matter which generation you represent, God’s faithfulness to your family has called you forth. This should comfort us, for this same faithfulness applies to our children as well. The God who called the first generation will be faithful with the last. This is who He is.

‎2 Peter 3:13 (NIV) - But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

The story of the Bible begins with paradise and it ends with paradise. The rest of the story (and the part that we live in) is between those bookends. This is what we groan for as we face the pain and suffering that is all around us. All of creation is looking for the moment when what we see is replaced with something that is familiar, yet totally new, and when we see it, we will know that we are finally home.

Luke 10:21 (NIV) - At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

What are the implications of this Scripture? That no matter how much we study or learn, our dependence is upon the Father to open our hearts to understand the Scripture. So prayer and study should go hand in hand, for study without prayer is an exercise in intellectual vanity, and prayer without study produces spirituality with no grounding. Both are necessary to walk in what the Father reveals.

Proverbs 1:10-11 (NIV) - My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them. If they say, “Come along with us; let’s lie in wait for innocent blood, let’s ambush some harmless soul;

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Temptation is all around us. There are multiple times in a day when we are faced with decisions that will affect other people in a detrimental way. The ambushes of the Western world in the 21st Century are not along a desert road, but they can occur around a water fountain during a break, or even at a church event. Don’t give into this conniving, for in the end the plotters only set a trap for themselves by their actions. The wisdom of this proverb is as relevant for us today as when it was first written.

‎1 Peter 4:15-16 (NIV) - If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

There are some people who teach that Christians should not suffer, but the Bible is filled with examples that would contradict that teaching. Suffering is a part of this broken world, but there are some distinctions. To break the law and get caught is not being persecuted for righteousness sake! Instead, we are to suffer for doing the right things; for going the extra mile. Don’t look for the easy way out, but look for ways to glorify Jesus. Our challenge should be how to bear that name well.

James 2:19 (NIV) - You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Halloween is a season where scary things are showcased and our fears are exploited through images of frightful creatures and horror movies. Evil is depicted as a powerful and unstoppable force, but the Scripture paints a different picture—all of hell trembles before the living God. Not only did Jesus defeat ALL the power of fear at the cross, he gave that same victory to us! To stand in the power of Jesus’ name is the opportunity given to every believer. Even demons shudder before those who know this!
