Treat Others Fairly for You Will Give an Answer to God

Colossians 4:1 (KJB)   Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven.

However, Paul in this verse reminds us, a man will give an answer to God for his treatment of others.  Especially in a position of ...

Satan Desires to Sift as Wheat

Luke 22:31-32 (KJB)   And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:  32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Sifting is the process of separating something, like flour, what is fine apart from what is coarse and thick.

An Approved Workman of God

2 Timothy 2:15 (KJB)   Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

An approved workman of God does not have anything to hid from his fellow man.  He is loud, proud, and graceful in professing things of God.  This colorful statement does not mean he is unruly or appears to be out of control.

It means that a man of God cannot possibly ...

Paul is Called A “babbler”

Acts 17:18 (KJB)   Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.

To many lost ancient people, the words and actions of Paul seemed strange.  They even called him a “babbler” because his words seemed “out of this world” to their spiritually shuttered ...

Intellectual Minds Cannot Grasp Things of God

1 Corinthians 1:21 (KJB)   For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

The intellectual minds at work in this world cannot comprehend any of the spiritual things of God.  They often give flowery philosophical points and use evil logic rooted in the darkness of this world.  They employ niceties and moral relativists and ...

Rejected by His Own

Rejected by His Own

John 1:10-11 (KJB)   He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

Sometimes, those who are the closest to us can also serve as some of our harshest critics.  Experiencing rejection and ridicule from others is common.  In fact, Jesus Christ experienced rejection in His short-lived ministry upon this earth.

He tells us throughout the canon ...
