gateway to glory

We have all heard of the glory of the Lord. It is sometimes likened unto a cloud, sometimes like a mist or vapor and sometimes it is like unto cloven tongues of fire accompanied by the sound of a rushing mighty wind.In the Old Testament, the glory would come, or descend and remain for a season and then would depart. When Moses went upon Mt. Sinai and stood in the glory and presence of God, more

nothing means nothing

Jesus was making a very important point here as He was describing how each and every believer can have a fruitful life. He says that it is by bringing forth much fruit that a person will bring glory to God.Can you imagine that it is possible for us to bring glory to God? What a blessed privilege it is for the creature to glorify his creator. It should be the desire of each one 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

the main business

The question has been asked many times, "What should be the main business of a Christian?" There are lots of answers and opinions about this, but there is really only one answer.The correct answer to the question can be found in the fact that the main business of man is God and his business! It seems that in this day of religious excitement, when we have had some indications of a stirring in the more

going for it all

Have you ever wanted to step out in faith and do something wild for the Lord? Have you been intimidated by the crowd and by a fear of messing up? I am sure that you probably have, since most of us basically have the same feelings and thoughts.I can remember very early in my Christian walk when I would spend time by myself, alone in my room. I would be preaching as hard and more

the goal

Paul expressed the basic principle for all of our conduct as Christians in this letter to the Colossians. He takes away the stance of many of the nominal Christians who say that it really doesn’t matter how we live and establishes the truth that our sole purpose for living should be to bring glory to God.I have discovered that a person needs to have a goal if they are going to accomplish much 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

pleasing god

It is almost unbelievable for most people to think that a man or a woman can actually please God. The Bible teaches that we not only can please God, but that we can also bless Him and bring glory to Him as we live for Him on this earth.It is important to remember that all of us are created for a purpose and all have a divine plan for our lives. It is in more

in his name

Did you know that God wants to bless you? He really wants to give you of the good things that he earth has to offer. He want you be be healthy, happy and living in His abundance. The Bible tells us that the earth He has given to the children of men. (Ps. 115:16) I can hear your wheels turning now as you try to figure out why you don’t have your part. “Oh! more

every good gift

It is so amusing to listen to people talk about God. You would be amazed at some of the things that I have heard people say about him. You would also be shocked to find out just how little most people really trust Him. I am not just talking about the lost people, I am referring to people who claim to be born again. I do not doubt their salvation experience, but I just more
