Godly Sorrow Ushers in Eternal Life
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. (2 Corinthians 7:10 KJV)
There are two kinds of sorrow at work in this world.
One is a sorrow manufactured by circumstances. Good circumstances bring a time of sadness and tears inevitably followed by a change in condition bringing happiness and rather than sadness.
The second kind of sorrow links together salvation with godly sadness for ... Continue Reading →

Romans 6:1-23 (KJB)
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory ...

Is Your Vision Dark and Defiled?
Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. (Titus 1:15-16 KJV)
Those who live according to their sinful nature peer at this world with their natural eyes. Those who are pure before God view ... Continue Reading →

God Will Tell Sinners “Have It Your Way”
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (Romans 1:24-25 KJV)
God is patient and slow to anger. He does not immediately “fly off the handle” at the presence of sin in a ... Continue Reading →
If man were able to love perfectly, he would never desire to break God’s commandments. This side of heaven the regenerated man is far from attaining godly perfection or loving perfectly. Only God can emit true love. Man chooses to exist, either by selfishly living and accommodating his flesh. Or choosing to reside spiritually in tune with God and cloaked in His mercy and grace. Walking ... Continue Reading →

God Keeps Man Upright
For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief. (Proverbs 24:16 KJV)
Life is a series of falling and getting back up.
This particular Bible verse says the just man will fall seven times, with seven being the perfect number of times. God knows all the exact areas in a just man’s life that need some knee time.
For the just man, it is not he who lifts himself ... Continue Reading →

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 ... Continue Reading →

Do You Find Trouble Lurking at Every Door?
And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites. (Judges 6:13 KJV)
We have all had trying times when we ask God ... Continue Reading →

Clothed in “Heavenly Attire”
Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. (Genesis 3:21 KJV)
For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. (2 Corinthians 5:2-3 KJV)
Both of these verses, one from the Old Testament and the other from the New Testament talk about God covering His children.
Did ... Continue Reading →
There is nothing wrong with good clean humor. In fact, humor is essential for keeping the joy and passion stirred up in man’s heart. Man’s heart can easily stagnate and sour amid during distressing times as mankind sojourns in this dark and dreary world. Not every day contains “mountain top” moments and a robust dose of godly humor can ultimately “save” the day!
Before sin, a man was ... Continue Reading →
