Boys and Girls

The agenda of those who defy God’s prerogative of establishing male and female knows no satisfaction. There is a refusal to acknowledge God’s authority and a defiance that permits them to engage in whatever moral activity they choose.  The Boys Scouts of America announced this week that they will no longer be exclusive to boys, but will allow girls to joi...

Fear No Evil

"Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ is the ONLY solution to the problem of sin." One of the most well-known passages of Scripture is Psalm 23. In verse 4, David (the Psalmist) says: “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” In a different Psalm, David decl...

Influence

"It has been said that we will either influence people toward righteousness or wickedness, but we will definitely influence others." One of the things that I learned early in life is that we cannot help but influence people around us. A famous expression of this principle is provided by John Donne (1572-1631) in a piece written in 1624 where he states: “As therefore...

Spiritual Growth

"There is no hope of transformation without the ability to see Christ. Considering Christ, studying Him, pursuing Him, observing Him, and following Him becomes the absolute mandate for anyone who will grow spiritually."  I remember a time when I was a child that I wanted to be taller.

The Eclipse of God's Power

"Where are they who are oriented enough to warn people of the great dangers of looking upon the holiness of God without the protection of the shield of redemption found in Christ Jesus?" Last week we experienced a very notable, unmistakable demonstration of God’s awesome power gaining worldwide attention. We were awed by the unique experience of the solar eclipse. S...

What Should I Watch?

Being “unaffected” by such programming actually displays that the corruptions they’ve already suffered are so deeply entrenched that their souls are not grieved nor are their spirits shamed by the sins they are watching. Most believers have to make decisions every day concerning what they will permit themselves to watch either on TV or in movies. Some de...

Why Should I Participate in Community Group?

No believer will thrive spiritually without the stimulation of accountable relationships with people who truly know them. Believers are meant to exist within the context of caring, nurturing, interpersonal relationships with other believers. Through this environment, believers are able to grow in grace through studying God’s Word, laboring in prayer, exercising spir...

The Value of Expectancy

I remember when I was younger, I used to consider the Rapture of the church a matter of convenience. I thought about it when I was either in trouble or facing a test for which I hadn’t studied! I realized that the very next item on God’s agenda for the advancement of His eternal purposes is the event when Jesus returns to “catch up” His Bride (1 Th...
