For Such A Time As This

Whatever difficulties we may be facing, I believe we were born for such a time as this. Yes, we have to grow and develop. We have to learn to live this life and navigate our journey, but we’re not alone. If we know Jesus, we are not alone. We have the word of God, theContinue reading “For Such A Time As This”

Perhaps The Most Important Lesson To Learn

Why would I say this may be the most important lesson we can learn? Mostly because this is something we don’t want to believe is for us. We live in a instant gratification world. Patience is not our strong suite. Yet, God’s spiritual laws — His Word — doesn’t change because it doesn’t fit ourContinue reading “Perhaps The Most Important Lesson To Learn”

Feed It And Exercise

Just feeding our bodies without doing any exercise will not give us a full appreciation of life. In fact, the time will come when we become more of a burden than a joy to be with. Why? Because someone else will have to make up for our weakness — a self-induced weakness. It’s never botheredContinue reading “Feed It And Exercise”

The Praying Problem

Most people I know who pray have a praying problem. Especially when they’re praying for someone other than themselves; though, they have a problem with that also. The result of the “praying problem” is they don’t seem to get many prayers answered. This becomes a serious problem when life or death hangs in the balance.Continue reading “The Praying Problem”

Which Baptism?

I find it a little disconcerting when good Christian folks don’t understand there are different kinds of baptisms. This ignorance causes misinterpretation of scripture. Misinterpretation causes wrong thinking. Wrong thinking causes wrong believing. And wrong believing can cause us to miss out on the best God has for us. It also causes division among immatureContinue reading “Which Baptism?”

In Jesus’ Name

“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). Every time we use the name of Jesus, we declare what Jesus has done for us. Jesus has saved us from our sins. Jesus has saved us from the curseContinue reading “In Jesus’ Name”

Greater On The Inside

How many times have we felt we need more resources, skill, wisdom, and power in our lives? Usually, we look to others for prayer, or comfort, or to fill a need. I’m all for helping one another. We need each other, especially as times become more dangerous for believers. But there is a limit toContinue reading “Greater On The Inside”

The First Christmas

(ESV) “Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said,‘Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body have you prepared for me; in burnt offerings and sin offerings you have taken no pleasure.’Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of me in theContinue reading “The First Christmas”

The Mother of Harlots And The Abominations Of The Earth

When we look into the Book of Revelation, usually it’s our imaginations that take over. Mostly we’re confused because of sensory overload and the inability to distinguish between the spiritual and the natural. Combined with so many theories, it’s a wonder we can be confident understand anything it teaches. The great whore in Revelation chapterContinue reading “The Mother of Harlots And The Abominations Of The Earth”

Going Into Egypt

Egypt is the oldest country in the world dating back to 6000 BC. It’s first dynasty started around 3100 BC. It also plays prominent in the Biblical record. As believer’s we often think about God delivering His people from the bondage of slavery in Egypt. Egypt represents a sinful and cursed world. We rarely, ifContinue reading “Going Into Egypt”
