It’s okay to have doubts as long as we look to God for validation

John the Baptist was a great man of God who knew he had a great calling and anointing on his life from the Lord. He was also very confident in his ministry and was rather blunt when he preached in the wilderness. When he was asked about whether or not he was Christ and who… Continue reading It’s okay to have doubts as long as we look to God for validation

How Christians are called to walk in light

'Alistair Begg reminds us that every Christian must engage the culture without accommodating the darkness present because of unbelief.

A time of honoring fools

One of many negative marks of the times we're living in is that many in society bend over backwards to place fools on pedestals to give them honor they really don't deserve. We as Christians are told several times to avoid commending fools and to avoid having them in our company on a regular basis.… Continue reading A time of honoring fools

Faithful ambassadors

When our Heavenly Father draws us to himself to be saved, among the many things that come with that relationship is the fact he employs us as his ambassadors, authorized representatives and/or messengers for his kingdom. It is truly an honor to hold that distinction for the King above all kings. As his representatives, we… Continue reading Faithful ambassadors

It’s frustrating to see the wicked prosper

I'll be honest. It's exasperating to see how often evil people get away with all their wicked schemes, especially when they become prosperous because of it, in the world or church. I've often wondered why God is quick to call my faults to my attention and put up hurdles or walls for me until I… Continue reading It’s frustrating to see the wicked prosper

Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord

When we are targeted by our enemies, it is part of our human nature to want to actively defend ourselves, whether it's shouting a person down, using violence to defend against their violence, or taking them to court. Sometimes those reactions are justifiable. Then there are times the Lord may want us to handle things… Continue reading Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord

Our steadfast faith helps comfort troubled believers

Where true saints should never fear to tread

Right before Moses died, he gave Israel a rousing benediction in Deuteronomy 33. It may have been addressed to that ancient nation, but the principle of that Holy Spirit-filled benediction can be applied to Christ's church, the spiritual Israel (see Galatians 6:15-16; Ephesians 2:12-13). Nevertheless, to be clear when I say that, I  don't mean… Continue reading Where true saints should never fear to tread

Lack of understanding gives Satan an opportunity

Having a solid, basic understanding of the Lord Jesus Christ's identity, purpose for coming to Earth, and accomplishments as stated in the Bible is of utmost importance if we are to stand firm in the faith. Firmly grasping those things can help lessen the ability and opportunity for Satan to trip us up. This is… Continue reading Lack of understanding gives Satan an opportunity
