Adopted and Accepted in His Grace

Adopted and Accepted in His Grace

Ephesians 1:5-6 (KJB)   Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,  6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Praise God that salvation does not rely upon any of my doing, for I, and every other person, would remain forever in a grave spiritual condition.

Yes, my own works, and your ...

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 ...

Tongue Tied Truth

February 13th, 2017

Tongue Tied Truth

Romans 11:6 (KJB)   And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

The words of this seemingly “tongue tied” scripture verse might make your head spin!  However, unraveling this truth contained in scripture reveals the greatness and eternal nature of God’s amazing grace.

God’s grace is free (Ephesians 8-10).

God’s grace is available ...

From Our Hearts to Our Hands

God’s Presence moves from Our Hearts to Our Hands

We, who are brothers and sisters in Christ, are the visible hands of God in this world.  He has entrusted each of us with a lifetime “spiritual vocation” or job.  This is not a suggestion or mere idea but a commandment for the child of God to invest his or her life sowing seeds of His gospel message.

A divinely designated spiritual career is much more important than any other occupation man will ...

Every Man Will Answer to God

September 17th, 2016

Every Man Will Answer to God

And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (Revelation 20:13 KJV)

This verse should bring fear and terror to the mind of anyone who does not know in his heart that he possesses an eternal personal relationship with God.

This verse affirms what will happen to those who are NOT ...

Noah Did Not Save Himself Through Obedience

And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (Genesis 6:7-8 KJV)

From time to time I see a popular post shared about the life of Noah.  It’s sole purpose is ...

The Child of God Manifests God’s Glory

July 4th, 2016

The Child of God Manifests God’s Glory

For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. (Psalm 33:4 KJV)

The righteous essence of God should be bursting forth in the lives of professing children of God.  Constant “spiritual fireworks” should be on display both inwardly and outwardly.   Brilliant spiritual hues in vibrant patterns including red, yellow, white, purple, and blue vividly color the life of every child of God.

The works of God are ...

The Night is on the Horizon

March 17th 2016

The Night is on the Horizon

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. (John 9:4-5 KJV)

Don’t let the word “works” confuse you when reading this verse.  It is true that mankind cannot bring about salvation through his own works.  Salvation hinges only upon the finished work of His Son ...

Take Up Your Cross September 9th 2015

Will your works stand both on earth and forever in the eternal realm?

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

Faith that is genuine shows itself through works which give glory and honor to God.  Real faith always produces works that point to God rather than pointing out works of man.  Genuine faith always produces spiritual evidence aligning with God’s Word and blossoming ...

Take Up Your Cross February 23rd 2015

Man cannot talk his way or work his way into the kingdom of heaven.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? (Matthew 7:21-22 KJV)

This ...
