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

commit and forget

Real faith takes time to develop. The more critical the issue, the more faith is exercised and the stronger the faith becomes. As a Christian, we are told that to live a life pleasing to God, our lives must be characterized by faith. Faith is to be the dominant principle in our life if we want a life that exemplifies Christianity and glorifies the Lord. This is why it is so important to start out...read more

the unspeakable gift

This is the time of the year when everyone is in the holiday spirit. People are giving and receiving gifts, families are getting together for celebration feasts and the kids are eagerly looking forward to waking to find out if they have been naughty or nice. What is all of this about? It is the season to celebrate, the time to praise God for His gift unspeakable. The time to let the world know what...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

letting peace rule

The peace of God is a very important aspect of the Christian life. It should be a vital and integral part of our lives. If you polled a large number of people, you would find that one thing that they are almost all looking for in life is peace. You see it really doesn’t matter how much one has of the things that this life offers if they don’t have peace to go along with...read more

a vision of god

This verse tells of a special time in the life of the prophet Isaiah. He had a vision of the awesome majesty and holiness of God. He got a glimpse into the throne room where God was on His throne surrounded by powerful angelic beings, the seraphim, who were crying out, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.”This event in the life of Isaiah was so...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
