Jumpstart: A Dispensational Devotional | Have You Left Your First Love?

By: George Zellar Revelation 2:1-7 Do you remember when you were a brand-new believer? What was it like? Were you thrilled to know Christ, rejoicing that you were saved and had your sins forgiven? Were you eager to tell others about the Lord? Was your time spent in the Bible very precious, as you discovered many life-changing truths? Was prayer a delight? Was it a great blessing to gather with other believers at every opportunity? Was sin especially disturbing to you, so [...]

The New Testament Chapter by Chapter | 1 Peter 4-5

By: Daniel Goepfrich Suffering for Christ Chapter four picks up immediately with the practical application for Christians based on Christ’s suffering: stay focused on God’s will rather than our fleshly desires. Peter’s audience had been saved long enough that their lifestyles should have reflected the life change (1 Peter 4:3-6). Another encouragement to live in a godly manner is that Jesus’ return is imminent. This lifestyle should include prayer, hospitality, and Christian service. 1 Peter 4:11 ends with a benediction leading many [...]

Jumpstart: A Dispensational Devotional | Don’t Be a Dead Sea Christian!

By: George Zellar John 7:37-39 The Dead Sea has various inlets such as the Jordan River from the north, the Arnon River from the east and the Kidron from the west, but it has no outlets. It also has no fishermen (that is, not until the millennium–Ezekiel 47:8-10). No fish survive in this lifeless and heavily-salted body of water. A great deal of water flows into this area, but nothing flows out: “I looked upon a sea and lo! ’Twas Dead, Although by Hermon’s snows [...]

The New Testament Chapter by Chapter | 1 Peter 2-3

By: Daniel Goepfrich Being Godly in an Ungodly World Chapter two best starts in 1 Peter 2:4. (The first three verses connect to chapter one.) Here Peter laid out the reason to live properly in this world and gave some practical examples of what that should look like. His reason is very simple: our relation to Jesus. Peter portrayed Jesus as a stone lying on the ground. For unbelievers, he is “A STUMBLING-STONE AND A ROCK TO TRIP OVER” (1 Peter 2:8). [...]

Jumpstart: A Dispensational Devotional | Imitating Men of God

By: George Zellar May we be... (1) like Abel, pursuing righteous works: Not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous (1 John 3:12). (2) like Enoch, walking in daily fellowship with the Lord: By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had [...]

The New Testament Chapter by Chapter | 1 Peter 1

By: Daniel Goepfrich God's Eternal Protection Chapter one begins with a celebration of our salvation in Christ. Peter called it a “new birth,” a “living hope,” and “an inheritance imperishable, undefiled, and unfading” that “is reserved in heaven for [us]”(1 Peter 1:3-4). Additionally, those who are believers in Christ “are protected” for a deliverance that will come in the future (1 Peter 1:5). It was important that his readers knew of God’s eternal protection because Peter reminded them that it might be necessary [...]

Jumpstart: A Dispensational Devotional | This Poor Man Cried

By: George Zellar Psalm 34:6-18 “This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles” (Psalm 34:6). “I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me” (Psalm 40:17). “O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy” (Psalm 86:1). “I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying” (Psalm 70:5). “I am poor and needy, and my heart [...]

Jumpstart: A Dispensational Devotional | The Single Eye

By: George Zellar Matthew 6:19-24 “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness” (Matt. 6:22-23). We need to return to the simplicity that is in Christ and have the proper focus and goal. The single eye refers to single-minded devotion, single undivided loyalty. The heart’s eye is fixed on Christ alone, and thus the body is [...]

Jumpstart: A Dispensational Devotional | Law and Grace

By: George Zellar “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17). The law reflects God’s holy and righteous standards to which we have all miserably failed to measure up. Grace involves God’s love and unmerited favor, freely bestowed on wretched sin- ners who do not deserve one drop of kindness. They deserve judgment and wrath instead. The law demands righteousness; grace freely justifies (Rom. 3:24). The law utterly condemns the best person; grace [...]

The New Testament Chapter by Chapter | 1 Peter Overview

By: Daniel Goepfrich The Audience Peter’s intended recipients were people scattered throughout Asia Minor. The word διασπορά (diaspora, “dispersion”) is used elsewhere in the New Testament only twice. In James 1:1 the “twelve tribes”are specified, and in John 7:25 it refers to Jews dispersed “among the Greeks.”Although 1 Peter contains principles available for all Christians of all time, since Peter was acknowledged to be the apostle to the Jewish people (Galatians 2:7) and since the word διασπορά was used to refer to [...]
