Noah Took God At His Word

Noah Took God At His Word

Hebrews 11:7 (KJB) By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Faith, when pared down to the “nitty-gritty” is the difference between spiritually investing in God and desiring eternal life or choosing to invest in ourselves and the dark tactics ...

Faithless Failures Do Not Have to Be Finales but Stepping Points

1 Peter 1:7-8 (KJB)   That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:  8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.

The Apostle Peter ...

Faith and Fear Go Hand in Hand

September 9th, 2017

Faith and Fear Go Hand in Hand

Hebrews 11:1 (KJB)   Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith calls for you to place your trust in something that you cannot see but, none the less, you believe is real or spiritually substantial.  A man can choose to place faith or fear into something that he cannot see but believes it is or will be real or tangible at some point in time.

Both ...

Abraham Staggered Not

Romans 4:20-22 (KJB)   He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;  21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.  22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

Abraham believed God through faith, having no doubt that God’s promises would come to fruition just as He promised.  Abraham did not have any lingering doubts that God would ...

The Innocence of A Child

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 ...
