Our lives have both an earthly & heavenly impact

In Ephesians 3:1-13, Paul has profound words from the Lord revealing to him the universal importance of his particular ministry.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you: prophetic words of love

As the Lord Jesus drew his ministry on Earth to a close with anticipation of his brutal death, burial, and resurrection, he shared as many important prophecies as he could with his disciples. Why?

God never forgets our actions that accompany salvation

Hebrews 6 begins with some spiritual concerns over some in the church who were falling away from the faith or had already done so. Their actions revealed they were not real Christians. However, the writer (who I believe to be Paul) then proceeds in the middle of the chapter on a positive note of encouragement… Continue reading God never forgets our actions that accompany salvation

Just how badly do you want it?

One would think that once God lays out a promise and ministry for us to fulfill that everything would automatically fall into place for those things to happen. Oddly enough, most of the time that isn't the case. Many times what happens is that we face some kind of test or obstacles standing in the… Continue reading Just how badly do you want it?

Good soldiers of Jesus Christ endure hardships

When we confess Jesus as Lord, it's good to understand from jump street that certain challenges automatically come with becoming a Christian. The ability and expectation to endure hardships is one of those challenges.

Even the city of wicked, mighty men can fall by God’s wisdom

Humans who are adamant and unrelenting in their wickedness are often prone to build cities to shore up and expand their evil concepts. Those cities are not only manifested physically in stone, brick and mortar, or steel. They can be cities of deceptions and error, oppression and suppression of what's right and just, and cities… Continue reading Even the city of wicked, mighty men can fall by God’s wisdom
