not ashamed of the gospel

Paul was a powerful witness for Jesus. He was never at the mercy of the skeptics. They could argue theology all day with him, but he was undaunted by their arguments. The reason is that they got to him too late. He was a persecutor of the Christians and a hater of Jesus. That is until the day that he actually met Jesus on his way to Damascus to persecute the church there. (Acts 9) more

i am persuaded

Have you discovered the secret and confidence that Paul the apostle had in Christ? Paul had committed his whole life and future to the Lord Jesus Christ. You have to understand that before he was Paul the Apostle, he was Saul of Tarsus. As Saul, he was very educated and very secure in his position as one of the leaders in the Jewish faith. A member of the Sanhedrin, the supreme court of the land, more

seeing through the eyes of faith

I can remember as a child growing up, seeing things that made an impression upon me, but it wasn’t until later years that I really understood the full implications of what I had seen. One of those things was man’s first space walk. I thought it was really something and it was very captivating to me, but it wasn’t until later years that I really began to grasp the magnitude of that accomplishment. I more

my sufficiency

Sometimes we as Christians come up against something that we think is not possible to overcome. It may be a sickness, a death, loss of a friend or job. There are too many things to mention here, and the things themselves are not the issue. The issue here is, can we overcome? Can we come out victorious?

stir it up

I can remember as a youngster, going camping overnight with my Dad. We had such fun and one of the things that I loved the most about camping was the campfire. I would sit transfixed, gazing into that fire for what seemed like hours. I was fascinated by the sounds, colors and smells that always accompanied a campfire.After finally going to bed, the very first thing that I did when I woke up the more

god will make a way

There are times in this life when it seems that there just isn’t any way to go that will work out for good. I am sure that there have been times in your life when you cannot see how things are going to work out, and how they will ever be good again. I am here to tell you today that God always has a way to make things work out. In each and more

a renewed mind

The human mind is a very powerful part of one’s makeup. It has been said that as the mind goes, so goes the person. If you can control a person’s mind, you can control the person. Well, that is just another way of saying what the Bible has already said. The Bible says it like this, “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”This is why Paul wrote to the church at more

serve with gladness

One of the great misconceptions among Christians is that we have to do some great thing in this life in order for God to be pleased with us. God is not nearly as hard to please as most think that He is.Serving God is not putting aside everything that is fun in life. It is not living a life of boredom and dullness. To the contrary, the life that God desires for the Christian more

let it show

You have heard the saying, “Talk is cheap”. Well it is certainly a true statement. It costs nothing to talk. In fact, any one can do that and there are lots of people talking about the Christian life that are not living it. The Bible says that we are to show people what a Christian is to be like by the way that we live and not just by what we say. The true more

what a privilege

I wonder how many believers have taken the time lately to simply thank God for the privilege of being saved. God has done so much for us and so many just seem to take it all for granted. It is almost as though people think that God owed them their salvation or that He is in some way responsible for their individual sins. You know what I mean, people say things such as, “Well, more
