The Only Fight That Matters

June 20, 2018

The Only Fight That Matters

2 Timothy 4:7 (KJB) I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.

There is a whole lot of fighting going on upon this earth.

A man and a woman fighting within their marriage.

Brothers fighting with sisters.

A mom fighting with her daughter and son.

A father fighting with his children.

Friends fighting among friends.

Coworkers and associates feuding in the workplace environment.

Ferocious animals fighting against other predatory animals and humans.

Even professing Christian’s ...

Special Miracles Sought After

Acts 19:11-12 (KJB) And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: 12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

God used the Apostle Paul as a vessel of service in bringing miracles of healing to many.  This healing, both of a physical and spiritual nature, was so sought after that people followed Paul and ...

Waxed Strong in Spirit

Waxed Strong in Spirit

Luke 1:80 (KJB) And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.

This short succinct verse has much to say about the time of maturing in John’s youth.  His growing and maturing years were spent in the desert.  Not the palace.

The growth of Paul (formerly known as Saul) who mingled with men of law, sprouting forth from the feet of Gamaliel, and on ...

Dealing with Demons Is Serious

Acts 19:13-16 (KJB)   Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.  14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.  15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?  16 ...

Selfless Serving Honors God

Selfless Serving Honors God

Acts 20:35 (KJB)   I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Paul knew all about working hard in tranquil times as well as in the middle of tough circumstances.  He never looked at a situation through the lens of his own needs or safety but always had ...

Troubling Times are an Opportunity to Elevate God

June 30th, 2016

Troubling Times are an Opportunity to Elevate God

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made ...

Paul Was Pressing Forward!

Paul Was Pressing Forward!

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV)

Are you stuck observing your past in the rear view mirror?  Rather than looking on the road ahead, as Paul, to things of God?  God is always ...

How is Your Spiritual Confidence?

May 1st  2016

How is Your Spiritual Confidence?

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39 KJV)

The Apostle Paul was spiritually confident knowing nothing could come between himself and the love of the Lord.  Paul understood that he was indeed ...

Take Up Your Cross August 8th 2015

God’s own live with a glorious eternal future clearly in focus.

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: (Philippians 1:21-23 KJV)

Paul did not lose focus upon Christ while imprisoned.  In ...

Lydia a Seller of Purple

Lydia was met by Paul and Luke as she was in a place of prayer along the river bank near Thyatira.  Lydia and other woman were found here praying on the Sabbath in the outskirts of a city that was filled with darkness and evil about them.  It is thought that Lydia was a Gentile woman who was a proselyte, or one who had converted to a belief in Judaism, and she was gathered along with other devout Jewish woman ...
