A New Creature in Christ

A New Creature in Christ

Up Close and Personal with the Apostle Paul Series

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJB) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

A new life in Christ does not merely mean the addition of Jesus Christ to existing world-based habits, preferences, or tacking Him onto current lifestyle choices.  No, indeed, for you, me, and every spiritually regenerated heart, ...

Fools Spit Out Truth

June 28, 2017

Fools Spit Out Truth

Ephesians 4:18 (KJB)   Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.

Foolish people cannot consider having anything to do with God for they have no spiritual hearing, or vision, or inner knowledge about Him.  They are stuck in a vicious circle of imprudent living in this world.  They cannot make ends meet, find true love, or walk along God’s ...

Pride is Eternally Unhealthy

Pride is Eternally Unhealthy

Galatians 6:3 (KJB)   For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

Pride at work in the heart displays an attitude of “I am important and everything revolves around me.”

A prideful heart condition stands in stark contrast to a humble and submissive person having a godly heart condition.  A godly heart revolves around God.  Everything is about bringing honor and glory to Him and entertains no thought of self-worth.

Satan ...

Alive in Christ

January 30th, 2017

Alive in Christ

John 6:63 (KJB)   It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

It is the Spirit of God that gives life.  It is the Spirit which breathes new life into darkened dead hearts.

Man is born with a dead and unprofitable heart.  A natural heart is not alive until God gives it the spiritual “breath of life.” (Ezekiel 36:26, John 3:5)

Only God can ...

God’s Grace Can Flow Through Any Circumstance

God’s Grace Can Flow Through Any Circumstance

For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. (2 Corinthians 4:15-16 KJV)

Problems, trials, and adverse circumstances are to be expected as man sojourns in this world.  In fact, these untoward situations are an opportunity for the ...

The Natural Man Will Always Jump the Fence


34554Mankind’s natural bent falls towards individuality and abiding in free-spiritedness rather than turning towards conformity and obeying commands of a ruling authority.  Mankind likes to ignore laws; both of man and God.  He often chooses to turn a deaf ear to demonstrate his opposition, choosing not to fulfill even reasonable expectations socially, civilly, and spiritually.

Our world is rapidly decaying and falling apart all ...

What Streams Out from Your Heart?

What Streams Out from Your Heart?

And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. (Mark 7:20-23 KJV)

The world has it backward.  Evil does not come from outside factors at work in the environment.

Evil naturally spurns outwardly ...

Are You Spiritually Hardy Or Withering And Waning?

Are You Spiritually Hardy Or Withering And Waning?

He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure. He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden. His roots are wrapped about the heap, and seeth the place of stones. If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen thee. Behold, this is the joy ...
