working out my salvation

I think that sometimes we need to take a fresh look at salvation and all that is involved in it. We know that salvation is by grace through faith. It is also the free gift of God that no man can earn by works or deeds. (Eph. 2:8-9) If salvation is a free gift that is not earned or deserved, then why does this verse say that we are to work out our salvation? more

i will call upon the lord

The Bible is very clear about this subject. It says, “whosoever’. Well, that means me. I can call upon the name of the Lord and He will save me. You may be saying, “Well, I know that anyone can be saved and I am saved, but I have other problems now. I need help in other ways like bills, health, provision, deliverance,” and so on it goes.You know, that is the way so many more

it’s all grace

We all know that salvation is by grace through faith. That sounds simple enough, and it is. God didn’t make salvation hard. He didn’t give us a list of arduous tasks to perform, or a certain number of years that we had to work so that we could attain our salvation. He made is plain and simple. He gives it to us as a gift that we can neither earn nor deserve.It is amazing 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

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

the next step is yours

When it comes to becoming a Christian, we have to say that it is all God’s work. He is the initiator, He is the one who reached out first to mankind. It is He who made the way clear so that we could be saved. If it were not for this initial work of God in reaching out to man, there would be no salvation and man would forever be doomed to live and more

no condemnation

For many Christians, this verse has no real meaning, yet it should be like a lifeline that is thrown out to them in a sea of guilt. Are you one of the ones who always feels that God is not going to answer your prayers or will not bless you or will pass you over for healing because you are not worthy?This is the case with so many people. The devil knows that he can’ more


Eternal life is free to you. It cost Jesus His life, but He freely gives it to you. Even though your salvation can’t be bought or earned, it does not come without a price for you to pay.Sometimes I think we do new converts or potential converts a disservice by telling them things such as, “Just give your life to Jesus and all your problems will be gone.” Another thing that we often tell more

what must we do?

I suppose that this question in one form or another is the question that has been asked, over the span of time, more than any other. People are really and truly interested in how to do the things of God, how to work the works of God, how to know God in a personal way and to know that He is pleased with them. Even the heathen have a built in desire to know more

blessing after blessing

I get so tired of hearing the skeptics and the doubters talk about how that God wants His people to barely get by. For some unknown reason to me, they cannot find it in themselves to believe that God is not only good, but that He delights in blessing His children.The devil has really done a snow job on some people. He has them thinking of God as a mean old miser who has plenty, more
