The Innocence of A Child

August 19, 2017

The Innocence of A Child

Matthew 18:2-3 (KJB)   And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,  3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

What exactly does “become as little children…” mean in this scripture verse?

A little child often has uninhibited trust.  He or she is not bogged down by doubts, fears, and questions.  ...

Teachable Moments

Teachable Moments

2 Timothy 2:22 (KJB)   Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Timothy, Paul’s friend and brother in Christ was a young respectable man.  The Bible tells us his mother Lois and his grandma Eunice (2 Timothy 1:5) raised Timothy up in great faith in God.

Paul was using a “teachable moment” with Timothy for highlighting the importance of fleeing wicked lusts which naturally rage ...

You Can’t Keep God To Yourself

July 19th, 2017

You Can’t Keep God To Yourself

Galatians 5:25 (KJB)   If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

This verse presents two distinct things always readily apparent in the life of a child of God:

Living in the Spirit and walking in the Spirit.

Sadly, many professing Christians will readily profess a living faith in God but many will fail to put spiritual action into their faith.

Walking in the Spirit is faith in action.  It is where “spiritual ...

Faith Always Generates Works

Faith Always Generates Works

James 2:14 (KJB)   What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

Faith is both a simple as well as a complex spiritual thing.  It is easy to place faith in the things of God for they are readily apparent and beautifully evidenced in the intimate details painted within the natural framework of nature’s landscape.

Where it gets more spiritually complicated is where the “rubber ...

Patience Perfects

Patience Perfects

James 1:3-4 (KJB)   Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Patience is not one of my strong suits.  In fact, I can be downright impatient and even exasperated at times.

What about you?

It is a constant battle to remind myself that God desires to try my faith as well as strengthen my patience.  If I let myself become frustrated ...

Love Without Limit

December 16th, 2016

Love Without Limit

John 3:16-17 (KJB)   For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

God’s love cannot be measured.  It cannot be contained.  It cannot be fully comprehended this side of heaven.

God loved mankind so much that He gave unconditional ...

Man Must Choose to Exercise Faith in God

Man Must Choose to Exercise Faith in God

Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (John 6:28-29 KJV)

Believe!  The work is already done!  Many people wrongly believe that their relationship or standing with God hinges upon something they do for themselves.

Nothing can be farther from the truth.

God sent ...

Faith Relies On God’s Righteousness

Faith Relies On God’s Righteousness

And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: (Philippians 3:9 KJV)

Mankind suffers the loss of things pertaining to his own self, gaining the righteousness of God.   The Truth is all about God and has nothing to do with any works of man. A self-righteous man has no room for the ...

God Means Exactly What He Has Said

Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. (Romans 14:22-23 KJV)

There are varying measures of faith that exist in the hearts of the men and woman of God.  Some have a tiny measure of faith ...

Facing Death with Confidence

September 16th, 2016

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. (2 Corinthians 5:7-8 KJV)

These verses clearly substantiate that anyone who has been quickened alive unto new spiritual life while alive on this earth will immediately be ushered into the glorious presence of God in the eternal realm upon succumbing to his physical death.

These verses discount the belief in ...
