1 Corinthians 1:18
(KJB) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but
unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
Are we saved, or are we being saved? This difference in wording is as opposing as
apples are to oranges or as night is to daytime. The two spiritual camps rest at opposing ends
of the spiritual spectrum. A saved heart
enjoys sweet eternal fellowship with God while lost hearts are far removed from
Him; both now and forevermore.

Swallowing Our Pride
Galatians 6:3 (KJB) For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
I have never heard of a person’s belly becoming swollen and ill from swallowing his pride. In fact, the proven benefits of swallowing our pride is quite the opposite. Ridding oneself of pride has both a physical and spiritual profit.
All a man needs to do is look in God’s Word to verses containing the word pride. That simple ... Continue Reading →

More Conviction Less Being Offended
2 Corinthians 7:9-10 (KJB) Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. 10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

Avoid Foolish and Unlearned Questions
2 Timothy 2:22-23 (KJB) Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
The Word of God gives us valuable insight and direction as we walk in this world. It also gives us places and actions to avoid. That is what is presented in these above verses, a call ... Continue Reading →

Finding Fault with God
Romans 9:19-21 (KJB) Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
Some people make a ... Continue Reading →

Burdens and Burnout
1 John 5:3 (KJB) For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
God says that keeping His commandments are not grievous. Doing so is a pleasure for a child of God and never a burden. Agreeing with God is a joy and a natural reaction of savoring and serving Him.
My friend, if you are feeling anxious and overwhelmed and at spiritual odds with the will of God, ... Continue Reading →
