Grace At The Center Our faith activates God’s grace, and grace puts God at the center of it all, which means that our salvation is totally a work of God, a free gift, and nothing that we can accomplish on our own. Now, the standard definition for grace is “God’s unmerited favor.” And that’s correct. … Read more

The Better Hope If the promises of God are ever going to be realized, the keeping of the Mosaic Law is not the way. Basically, the law says, “Mess with me, and you’re toast.” No one can live a perfect life (Romans 3:10-12), and that is the type of life the law demands from beginning … Read more

Never Run Dry How many times have we said that we’re running on empty, or that we’re all burned out? We use these phrases to indicate that we’re all used up and that there’s nothing left. We can’t do another thing and we’re ready to quit. But in the Lord there’s no quit, and we’ll … Read more

Beyond Our Comprehension “The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.” (Revelation 15:8) At this time, God is going to pour out His wrath upon humanity’s many ages of … Read more

When Tradition Replaces Reality We do a lot of things in life, and seldom stop to ask why. We develop habits and traditions, and if we’re not careful, we can forget why we do certain things. The danger of familiar traditions is they will become routine and lose their intended power. What I find amazing … Read more

The Great Equalizer Most products we buy have an expiration date, and these dates are important to know, like when you’re buying milk, or better yet getting ready to drink it. When you buy a car you know its expiration as well. It’s when the warranty runs out. Just about everything carries an expiration date. … Read more

Overturning Satan’s Schemes God will turn Satan’s plans against us back upon his own head. The Jewish feast of Purim celebrating Haman’s defeat reveals this reality. “In the twelfth month … on the thirteenth day, the time came for the king’s command and his decree to be executed. On the day that the enemies of … Read more

Live Long and Prosper If you are a Star Trek fan you would remember Dr. Spock’s raised right hand, with his fingers parted in the Vulcan salute saying, “Live long and prosper.” Actually the hand sign comes from a Jewish priestly blessing. The fingers separated in this way signify the Hebrew letter “Shin,” which stands … Read more

A Clean Conscience We all have a conscience, and while we may be able to analyze it through philosophy there is no way of controlling it. The conscience has been defined as that still small voice that tells us what we’re doing is wrong, or that which feels bad when everything else feels good. And … Read more

Begin Building Most Christians have the attitude that as long as it doesn’t affect the way they live then they’ll follow the Lord and attend church. We want to be comfortable and have our needs met with little if any consequences. And this includes our church attendance. And what ends up happening is we don’t … Read more

Humanity’s Greatest Need The existence of God is probably the most important topic or issue facing our crazy mixed up world. That’s a heck of a statement considering all the horrific acts of terrorism we’re seeing, all the wars that are either happening or that are on the verge of happening, the increase of deadly … Read more

Fringe Benefits What was it about the fringe of Jesus’ garment that had people clamoring to touch it? We see this in the woman who couldn’t stop her menstrual bleeding. When she heard about Jesus she secretly came up behind and touched the hem of His garment, and immediately was healed. (Mark 5:27-29; Luke 8:43-44) … Read more

A Brief Moment of Grace Today as never before we need a revival, but what that entails is repentance on our part, which means turning from those ways that displease the Lord. One such area is how the church, and we as believers, have intermarried ourselves to the concepts and philosophies of the world. This … Read more

Bad Blood When there’s some sort of feud going on between individuals, we say that there is bad blood between them. It’s a feeling of intense hatred. Spiritually what you might say is that before someone came to know Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord there was bad blood between them and God. But … Read more

Comfort God’s People Whenever we speak, we’re not speaking for ourselves, but for the Lord. Therefore, we need to be careful in how we respond to others. Eliphaz was once again rebuking Job saying his present distress is because of sin, and instead of being distraught Job should be happy that God is reproving and … Read more

Hurtful Labels How often have we used labels in describing someone? We use names like ‘stupid’ or ‘dumb’ to describe their cognitive ability, or ‘pencil pusher’ and ‘shyster’ to describe their profession. Each is meant to degrade and denigrate. Elizabeth, John the Baptist’s mother, was once defined by her childless condition. “Her who was called … Read more

Duplicity Revealed God says, “Quit doing one thing while proclaiming to do another. Stop saying you believe in Me if you’re not going to follow My word.” While it’s complete folly to say there is no God (Psalm 14:1) it’s even greater folly to proclaim belief in Jesus Christ and live as if He doesn’t … Read more

Stop and Listen God gave us two ears and one mouth. Why then does it take so long to get the hint? We open our mouths when we should keep them closed, and listen. Or we hear something someone says and it eats at our craw. So, we open our mouths and out comes the … Read more

A Needed Second Touch Sometimes we just need another touch from God. In Mark’s Gospel there’s a story of Jesus healing a blind man. Jesus came to the city of Bethsaida and some people brought a blind man begging Jesus to heal him. So, Jesus took the blind man outside the city and spit on … Read more

You’ll Never Run Dry How many times have you said, “I’m running on empty,” or “I’m burned out?” We use these phrases to indicate we’re all used up and we’ve got nothing left in our tank. It is where we can’t do another thing and we’re ready to quit. But in the Lord there’s no … Read more
