Ye Have the Poor With You Always

And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always. – Mark 14:6-7 KJV One of the biggest trends happening in the church is ...

LOVE AND DOCTRINE

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not ...

Just My Imagination?

Maybe it’s just my imagination? But, it seems there is much more backbiting, and bickering, now happening between like minded Believers. Well, let me take that opening statement back.  It’s not my imagination.  It is fact!  There is, after all, nothing new under the sun. You see; there is something inherent in every single person ...

The Reliability of Scripture

Everyone has their own opinions about everything under the sun, including politics and religion. Dare I say that these are still the most disagreed upon subjects ever!  The main thing that sparks so much of the disagreement is inaccurate information. Our political world is adrift in opinion, rather than set laws. The same can be ...

D.E.A.D!

The major focus in so much of what is called Christianity today (The magazine is indeed a correct representative of Christianity Today) is focused on me, myself, and I, rather than on Christ Jesus.  One of the most popular teachers / authors is Joel Osteen, whose bestselling book, “Your Best Life Now” continues to be ...

An Endless Supply of Grace

Grace is an incredible thing. It is freely given by the Lord, and should be freely received, and utilized, by the Believer. It is the source of our strength; the very energy of our lives. I know that right now you are thinking of a wonderful old hymn. The “Wonderful Grace of Jesus” is something ...

Leading the Quiet and Peaceable Life Pt. 2

False expectations can be devastating in our personal lives, toward our spouses, in parenting, and in other relationships. Humans are sinners by nature not able to please God, being under sin with a bent to rely upon self. Expecting those in authoritative government positions to make godly decisions is the difference between light and darkness, ...

Knowing Christ

“that I may know Him” To know Christ is the greatest pursuit to ever press toward.  Wondrously, as we come to know Christ, we come to know even the Father by Him; for Christ is the express image of His person.  Christ is our life and to know Him is life.  The tendency is to ...

Working unto the Lord Pt. 2

When we know business is ordained by God, and that most jobs can be used to serve the Lord in, and that diligence is the first word to describe how God conducts Himself with His business, we should ask the question how can I be diligent in business and not slothful?  Our Father provides us ...

The Word of God

The Word of God & All Things The Word of God is the sole means the Holy Spirit uses and relies upon to sanctify those in Christ (1 Cor. 2:10-16).  This ought not surprise us.  Words are spirit and they impact our spirit (John 6:63).  Therefore, it makes logical sense that the Holy Spirit’s modus ...
