it’s in the book

Upon initial consideration of this verse, most of us would say, “Oh yea, I know what that means.” To a degree, that would be correct. The first and obvious truth that jumps out at us is that Jesus is found to be the Savior and the door through which we enter into eternal life.As true as this is, there is so much more to discover in this small verse. First, and foremost, we find more

jesus always; jesus only

We are living in times that are unique in so many ways. We are seeing so much prophetic fulfillment in our news daily, that there should be no question in anyone’s mind that these are end times. No, we don’t know the exact time and so forth, but we do know the seasons.The Bible makes it clear that one of the signs of the end of time will be that there will be many more

a special gift

It is common knowledge among believers that the greatest gift ever given is the gift of eternal life. This gift is available because God was willing to give, as a gift to the world, His only begotten Son. This is what the scripture is talking about when it says, “Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift (1 Cor. 9:15). There is no debate over this issue, it is unquestionably accepted that this is more

the in crowd

There is a group of people that is known as the “in crowd”. This group is the one that everyone is supposed to want to be like. They have the nicest cars, the most expensive home, and they are always invited to, and are the life of, every party.I have known people who would do just about anything to get to be a part of the in crowd. They would turn their backs on more

you can know

I am amazed at how people confuse the simple truth of the gospel. When I say people, I am not talking about the way out, crazies. You know those who say that there is no heaven or hell, but it is just life here on earth and you make it heaven or hell by the way you live. Nor am I talking about those who say that it doesn’t matter how you live or more

truth or consequences

Some of you are probably able to remember a popular game show of years ago by the same name as today’s title. I can remember bits and pieces of the show. The main idea was that you either told the truth or you suffered the consequences. You know, we are all, of a sorts, in a big game show. The main difference being that the stakes are so much higher in the game of more

what in the world is god doing?

You may never have asked this question in so many words, but all of us at one time or another have questioned what God was doing and what He was up to. This question must be answered not only in the general terms of God's overall plan, but also in the specific terms as relating to you and me personally. The ability to see through the eyes of faith into that spirit dimension and more

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 more

will the real, please stand up?

If you are a Christian, then you live in two dimensions. They are called by different names, but they mean the same thing. You will often hear them referred to as the spiritual and the physical or the visible and the invisible; or still another way they are denoted is the tangible and the intangible. Your ability to put these two realms into proper perspective will determine whether or not you will succeed.If you more

the narrow way

Jesus was teaching eternal principles to His followers in this passage when He said that the gate was small and the way to eternal life was narrow. Many have taken this to mean that the Christian life is a hard life and that there will only be a few who will find it. Jesus did say that there were few that would find it, but few as compared to how many. When you look more
