New Testament Nuggets

Even though the New Testament opens up with Matthew writing specifically to prove Jesus is the Messiah, the book of Mark was most likely the first Gospel written. The New Testament is the agreement God made with people about their salvation after Christ came.  These 27 books are describing the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, letters of encouragement and instructions to believers. The Bible then ends with a book of great hope and visions of worship with God in heaven.

Last week we listed a few “nuggets” from the Old Testament; these are from the New Testament.  Read the associated verse to get the full effect.

  • Lives are forever changed because of contact with Jesus.  (Mark 5: 25-31)

  • Productivity of the seed is dependent on the receptivity of the soil.  (Luke 8:11-15)

  • Paul accepted his adversity and used his platform to impact the Kingdom. (Acts 16:22-40)

  • Freedom comes from obedience (Romans 6:15-18)

  • Paul’s prayer for spiritual growth (Ephesians 3:14-21)

  • Focus on who He is as opposed to what you are enduring. (Philippians 4:8-9)

  • Pray “not to get me out of this,” but “what can I get out of this.” (Colossians 4:3-6)

  • Either assist or resist the enemy. ( 1 Peter 5:8-9)

  • There is built in friction for those who know and serve Christ and those who don’t. ( 1 John 3:1)

These are just a few notes scribbled in the margins of His message.  I would encourage you to read the Bible and listen for His voice as you sit and soak in His Word.

Accept what God has done FOR you, then let Him work IN you so that He can work THROUGH you.
