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

The marks of false prophets

2 Peter 2:1 warns us that just as there were false prophets in Israel, there would be false teachers in the church in the last days. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 also warns us of a great falling away within the church as the time of Antichrist nears. Ancient Israel experienced a great falling away period right… Continue reading The marks of false prophets

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. The transforming light of the Gospel shines when Christians live as those who have been transformed by the grace of God with minds saturated by the Word of God.'

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

Completely sanctified

God didn't give us our new nature so we would be spiritual or moral failures. As a matter of fact, if we are truly in Christ we can expect the Lord to completely sanctify us by the time we meet Christ face to face. This is what we can assuredly conclude from the following words… Continue reading Completely sanctified

As ministers of Christ, we must be a pattern of good works

I have said this several times over the years in my posts, but it bears repeating. Everyone who believes in Jesus is a minister to some degree even if we have no degree from a university. Peter taught this in 1 Peter 4:10 which says, "As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same… Continue reading As ministers of Christ, we must be a pattern of good works

Our steadfast faith helps comfort troubled believers

We may often take our Christian duties for granted, but remaining faithful to the Lord can end up being an unforeseen spiritual boost for a brother or sister in Christ who is going through a hardship in their lives. This is what Paul expressed to the Thessalonians when he wrote to them as he was… Continue reading Our steadfast faith helps comfort troubled believers

Chosen, called, and upheld by God

One of the many good reasons to regularly study God's word and apply it is so we can be reminded just how faithful God is to us and how beneficial that relationship is for us to make it in this life as we prepare for the next life. Isaiah 41:8-13 is one place where we… Continue reading Chosen, called, and upheld by God
