Unbelief

When the nation of Israel was journeying from Egypt to the promised land, they got discouraged, they forgot God’s blessings, and they let the doubts and fears get the best of them. When they finally reached the Jordan river and were about to cross over into what God had told them all along would be …

Grace

So many people in today’s “Christian” world have a skewed understanding of God’s grace in our lives. A Bible study leader at a “Christian” college stated that not only was God’s command to be holy not actually intended to be obeyed but also, since our sins are covered by Jesus’ death on the cross, we …

A Dead King

I remember a movie from the 1980’s where 2 guys go to spend a weekend at their boss’s fancy beach house. Only they find out when they arrive that he is dead! But, since they want to enjoy the pleasures of the beach house and it’s lifestyle, they pretend he is still alive, and spend …

Angry God?

In Exodus 32:9-10, we read: “And the LORD said to Moses, ‘I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff-necked people. Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them, in order that I may make a great nation of you.’”  And we can …

The Word

The Gospel of John was written as an evangelistic book, through the leading of the Holy Spirit. You’ll not find the story of Jesus’ birth nor information about His early life as you find in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. John 20:30-31 tells us why John was written, “Now Jesus did many other signs in the …

Glorious Light

John began his Gospel with those great words, “In the beginning was the Word…” And after affirming the truth that Jesus Christ (the Word) was truly God and the One through Whom everything that has been created was created, he continues his evangelistic Gospel by declaring, “In him was life, and the life was the …

It Matters!

In Mark 12, we read how one of the scribes, who were the teachers of the law, came to Jesus and asked Him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” And we read, “Jesus answered, ‘The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love …

Precious?

The death of a loved one in this life is to us a sad experience as we will miss seeing their face, hearing their voice, and experiencing life with them. As many of you already know, my sister passed away Saturday afternoon after a long and hard fought battle with cancer. I had prayed long …

Reality

I’ve been watching online some of the videos of the destruction that Hurricane Harvey has been causing in Texas. One video showed a business that was completely destroyed, and the owner was saying “My whole life was wrapped up in that business, now it’s all gone!” That’s the reality of this world. Nothing in this …

Fear God!

The Bible mentions fearing God at least 300 times in different ways, such as “Fear the Lord” and “Fear God” . So, does that mean that we are to be afraid of Him, like we would be afraid of a ferocious tiger running toward us? Or does that mean that we just respect Him for …

Why?

One of the great failures in modern Christianity is that we too often use the argument “Well, there’s nothing in the Bible that says I can’t or shouldn’t do….” And thereby we justify all sort of practices and actions that in reality lead us no nearer to God, but rather farther away from Him. Paul …

Not Interested

In Matthew 23:37, we read Jesus’ lament over Jerusalem as He says, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!” Here, Jesus had …
