in hope of the glory

This verse says that we have been justified by faith and therefore have peace with God. It is so comforting to know that justification is a finished work, not something that we have to daily strive for. There would not be very much confidence in our lives if we had to daily prove our worthiness to be justified. Many people have a hard time accepting this truth, they just can’t believe that they don’t have...read more

key to understanding

If you were going on a trip to a place that you had never been, you probably would need a map to get there. Just suppose that you stopped by a service station as you were leaving town and picked up a map for the coming journey and as you went along you began to have suspicions that the map was incorrect. Well, not knowing what to do, you decided to follow it anyway, after...read more

the day before christmas

That day started out just like any other day. There was the business of getting the morning breakfast, getting the flock to water and then on to the feeding pastures. There were sheep that needed special care due to sickness or accident. Not much had changed over the years, times came and times went, yet the shepherd business was the same day after day. As the day closed, there was the gathering and the separating...read more

every promise in the book is mine

The Bible is filled with promises, promises of victory, promises of blessing, promises of peace, promises of prosperity, promises of health, you name it, and if it is good, then the Bible has a promise for it. Now some people will try to justify the fact that they are not experiencing these blessings by saying that these were written to the Jews, the chosen of God, or that these were Old Testament promises and are...read more

mind games

It has been said that whoever controls the mind, controls the body. That is a very true statement. If you can gain control of a person’s mind, you can literally control what that person does, how they will respond to certain stimuli. The mind is a very powerful force, exerting power that will win over ration and reason. You see, if a person thinks a certain way, they will respond in accordance to their thinking....read more

you’ve got the power

Christians today are laboring under a misconception that is really devastating to their lives and to their witness. For some reason, there is this teaching that anything miraculous and anything supernatural has either been done away with or is of the devil. Now where do you think that teaching would come from? It seems pretty obvious to me. It would come from the one who does not want you, as a Christian, to live the...read more

keep on growing

In this lifetime, we have a standard set before us. The mark that we are all to strive to attain was set by Jesus and is perfection. Now I know that you must be thinking that this is an impossible task so why bother even trying. Well, in the natural and in your own strength, you would be right. It is too high for the attaining. But, you must remember that God is perfect and...read more

trust in trying times

Do you ever feel like one of those little ducks at a shooting gallery? It seems that you are in a vicious cycle going round and round, and every time you get back up, there is someone trying to shoot you down again. Well, I know exactly what you are talking about. If it is any comfort, I want you to know first of all, that you are not alone. It seems like the enemy...read more

beware the spoilers

Once I opened a freezer and man did I ever get a surprise. The freezer had quit working a few days before and all the items in there had thawed and were rotten. That was the worst smell that I think I have ever smelled. Everything in there had spoiled, it was no good for anything except dog food. The same thing can happen to you if you are not careful. Now I am not...read more

unanswered prayer

One of the things that seems to puzzle believers the most is prayers that go unanswered. Did you read the verse from Jeremiah? It doesn’t say that God might answer or will sometimes answer, it says the He WILL answer. So, for that reason, I submit the idea that there is no such thing as an unanswered prayer.I can just hear the cry going out now from many who read this, they are saying that...read more
