light the world

The world is in darkness, total darkness. Obviously, I am not talking about physical darkness, you know that I am talking about spiritual darkness. The world and mankind has been in this darkness since the beginning of time when Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. This darkness is a darkness in the knowledge of God and His ways. Man lost that ability to know God, because according to scripture, his more

world changers

The Bible lets us know beyond any doubt that even though we are in this world, we are not to be of this world. What does that mean? It means that while we do live and exist here on this earth, that we are of another kingdom and another realm. Sure, we have to eat, drink, work, do business and all the other things that regular people do, but we are a part of more

set apart

This, you will recognize, is part of the prayer that Jesus prayed. It is the prayer that He prayed for His disciples and all those who would later come to be His followers. This includes every born again saint from that time till now. Praise the Lord, that means it is a prayer that Jesus prayed for me. I am the beneficiary of this prayer and so are you if you are a born more

right thinking

There are two kinds of thinking in this world today. There are God’s thoughts and there are wrong thoughts. I am here to tell you today that if it is not God’s thoughts and God’s ways, then it is wrong. There is no middle of the road. We are either right or wrong.Some say that it really doesn’t matter what we think. They will tell you that thinking has nothing to do with the 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

glass houses

Living in a glass house could be dangerous, as we all know, those living in glass houses should never start a stone throwing battle. The results could be very cutting. There is also another thing to consider if you live in a glass house. Privacy would be a hard commodity to come by, any one at any time could pass by and see all that was going on inside.What has this got to do more

becoming conduct

It is so important to pay attention to the admonition that Paul is giving to the Christians in this passage. We should all live like we have been redeemed. It is necessary that we show and tell the message of the gospel. We should show the world that Jesus is alive and that He can make a difference in a person’s life and not just tell them that he can. You have heard the more

be of good cheer

Difficult times will come to us while we are in this world, this is inevitable. I don’t think that there is anyone, anywhere who would disagree with that statement. I should hope not, because if there was, they would be disagreeing with what Jesus said in the Word.The question is not whether or not we will have some difficult and trying times, the question is the origin of these hard times. Many people still more

the good stuff

There is a teaching that has been perpetuated by those who don’t know anything about the basic nature of God. This teaching is that if you become a Christian, that you will have to give up doing all the fun things, surrender all your goods, and in essence become a dull and dreadful being. I am glad to be able to tell you that this teaching is as far from the truth as one more

a need to see jesus

There is a lot going on in the Christian world that is not being very productive. You will find that in most churches there is plenty to keep everyone busy. I was told one time by a well to do pastor that if you wanted to keep people in your church, you had to keep them busy. He did a good job of that too. Everyone who would do it, was put on some more
