    When “getting the job done” takes a back seat

    “I could use a little help here!” Yeah, when there’s work to be done, no one likes to see someone just sitting around! But are there times when “getting the job done” isn’t the most necessary thing? Today, the Discover the Word team uncovers the “whole story” about a familiar story in the Bible where […]

    The Supreme Climb

    A person’s character determines how he interprets God’s will (see Psalm 18:25-26). Abraham interpreted God’s command to mean that he had to kill his son, and he could only leave this traditional belief behind through the pain of a tremendous ordeal. God could purify his faith in no other way. If we obey what God says according to our sincere belief, God will break us from those traditional beliefs that misrepresent Him. There are many such beliefs which must be removed-for example, that God removes a child because his mother loves him too much. That is the devil’s lie and a travesty on the true nature of God!

    The surprising power of Christ’s love

    This week on Discover the Word the group has gotten to know a man named Malchus—an obscure character in the Easter story.

    Blindsided by Jesus’s love – the story of Malchus

    Do you like surprises? Even for those of us who don’t, we might come around when it’s a good surprise. Today on Discover the Word, the team gathers to discuss one of the most surprising things about Jesus, by looking at one of the most surprised people in the Bible. Blindsided by Jesus’s love—the story […]

    Where is Jesus when we get blindsided?

    Have you ever been blindsided by something? We can all get caught off guard by events we didn’t expect. But today, the Discover the Word team sits down to discuss how a man named Malchus got blindsided by Jesus’s disciple Peter. Suddenly, the flash of a sword changed his life. So where is Jesus when […]

    Malchus – a small player in one of history’s biggest scenes

    Remembering names can be hard, so it’s not surprising that there are people in the Bible who we may have forgotten about. Today on Discover the Word, the group will kick off a couple of weeks with an Easter focus by taking a closer look at someone who was a fairly small player in one […]

    Abraham’s Life of Faith

    He went out, not knowing where he was going. —Hebrews 11:8

    In the Old Testament, a person’s relationship with God was seen by the degree of separation in that person’s life. This separation is exhibited in the life of Abraham by his separation from his country and his family. When we think of separation today, we do not mean to be…
