But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Christ Washing the Disciples’ Feet

John 13

This significant action, so full of kindness and condescension on the part of our Saviour, is recorded for our example. Happy shall we be, if we truly copy it. Here is no affectation of humility, but humility itself; nor is it performed as a mere...

Every believer is guilty of offering lame excuses for a lack of spiritual commitment at one point or another, but each and every excuse is lame. They just don’t amount to anything. Jesus confronts lame excuses throughout his teaching.

The sense of this passage, like most others, requires to be ascertained from the context. God is addressing Jacob, or Israel, as a nation, and reminding them of their great depravity; whence he asserts that all the mercy exercised towards them must be free or unmerited. God often...
