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

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

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

Love, the bond of perfection

Among the many good qualities a Christian should possess in their relationship with God and other people is Christian charity, also known as selfless, unconditional love. It's a theme we are constantly reminded of throughout the New Testament. As a matter of fact, Paul said it was so important that it should be considered the… Continue reading Love, the bond of perfection

For Christ’s sake, the sake of others, and your own, have a vision

Having visions from Jehovah God is paramount to an individual's spiritual well-being and to a community's well-being also. By "visions," I mean something genuine that goes beyond fake stuff in some Christian circles such as Benny Hinn causing whole groups of people to fall out while at the foot of his stage. Proverbs 29:15 states,… Continue reading For Christ’s sake, the sake of others, and your own, have a vision

It’s good for me to draw near to God

We may be living in a period where many are forsaking the Lord because they are deceived by the seemingly attractive things of the world, but I thank God that his Holy Spirit in me continues to encourage me to draw near to my Heavenly Father with my whole heart. With his loving persistence, the… Continue reading It’s good for me to draw near to God

Awestruck by God’s manner of love

The apostle John in 1 John 3:1 expressed amazement at the fact that God loves us with a genuine love that is massive in both its quantity and quality when he said, "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world… Continue reading Awestruck by God’s manner of love

‘Graphic crucifixion scenes may not be good for your mental health,’ warns university

University staff feel it's necessary… Continue reading ‘Graphic crucifixion scenes may not be good for your mental health,’ warns university

Jesus works for our benefit on his mountain of myrrh & hill of frankincense

Our Lord Jesus Christ may have ascended to heaven to be at the right hand of our heavenly Father (Acts 7:55; 1 Peter 3:22) after his resurrection, but I'm thankful that he's not just sitting there doing nothing. He's keeping himself busy on our behalf. That comforting fact is figuratively and prophetically expressed in the… Continue reading Jesus works for our benefit on his mountain of myrrh & hill of frankincense

Hatred for sin is the only hate that belongs in Christ’s church

Jesus Christ hated sin, but he loved sinners enough to confront them about their sin and loved us enough to die for our sins. Genuine believers in Christ follow that example. I think it's important for us Christians to keep highlighting that truth since we live in a time where that truth is distorted by everyone from… Continue reading Hatred for sin is the only hate that belongs in Christ’s church
