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.

Righteousness Only Comes by God

Galatians 2:21 (KJB)   I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Paul is trying to clear lingering confusion about mixing law and grace.  Attempting to blend the two together only serves to frustrate the grace of God.  That is precisely why God sent His Only Son to die on Calvary.  His unmerited favor can affect man with His righteousness for the keeping ...

Judicious Biblical Decisions

April 6th, 2017

Judicious Biblical Decisions

Psalm 106:3 (KJB)   Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

Right judgment means making decisions based upon truths of God.  Godly choices are based upon the righteousness of God.  All too often a man makes a “fly by night” decision running on the fuel of emotion, rather than taking valuable time to discern spiritual direction from God.

Mankind must be in the daily business of carefully judging each decision he makes.  He ...

Herod Hears John

Mark 6:19-20 (KJB)   Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:  20 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.

I think it is fair to say that if Herodias had it her way she would have wasted no time in killing John because of his personal ...

This one verse can clear up a lot of sexual perversions and confusion operating in this world.

Notice God said in this verse that He created male and female:

“male and female created he them…”

This verse does not say God created homosexuals, heterosexuals, bisexuals and the perverted like.  These words used often, ...

David Asked God for The Motherlode!

Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant. (Psalm 143:10-12 KJV)
