Paul’s point is that the believer’s entire life provides the unique privilege by which he can serve others in Christ’s name. Further, our love for fellow Christians is the primary test of our love for God.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Galatians 6:10.
Apostates promise spiritual life but are empty clouds which bring the hope of rain, but actually deliver nothing but dryness and death. They preach a false gospel that leads only to hell.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Jude 12.
Exhortation takes the form of encouragement, comfort, warning, or strengthening. There is an eschatological urgency to the exhortation which requires an increased activity as the coming of Christ approaches.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Hebrews 10:25.
Literally dwelling places, rooms, or even apartments (in modern terms). All are in the large “Father’s house.”
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for John 14:2.
This psalm expresses the exuberance of the psalmist as he recognizes that God is merciful in salvation, great in His works of creation, just in His dealings with the wicked, and faithful in prospering His children.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Psalm 92:1-15.
Jesus will return to earth in the same manner in which He left (Acts 1:9-11; Daniel 7:13,14; Revelation 1:7). The psalmist said that God uses “clouds” as His chariot (Psalm 104:3), and Isaiah 19:1 pictures the Lord riding on a cloud. Although these “clouds” could be natural, they more likely describe the supernatural “glory cloud” that represented God’s presence in Old Testament Israel. While Christ possesses “great power and glory,” His return will be accompanied by visible manifestations of that power and glory – He will redeem the elect, restore the devastated earth, and establish His rule on earth.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Mark 13:26.
Believers will experience an entirely new existence in which they will have perfect spiritual relationships with everyone else. Believers will be like angels in that they will be spiritual, eternal beings who will not die.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Mark 12:25.
Every good gift
and every perfect gift
is from above,
and comes down
from the Father of lights,
with whom there is no variation
or shadow of turning.
Since everything that I’m thankful for is from God, I’m giving thanks to Him today. Wishing all of you a wonderful day today 🙂
