Characteristics Of Serving God

2 Corinthians 6:6-8 (KJV) By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true.

God does not just set His spiritual family out on a limb and expect them to be naturally giving ...

Coveting Is Natural to Lost Hearts

Hebrews 13:5 (KJV) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Here is another verse of scripture with a “bite.”  It reveals the truth that we are to be content in our current state of affairs.  Not only that, but we are to speak in kindness towards others and about other people’s situations, not choose ...

A Catch Twenty-Two

A Catch Twenty-Two

James 4:17 (KJV) Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Okay, ut oh, here it is.  If a person realizes that what he or she does is a sin, it shows without a doubt that they choose to sin.  It is a “spiritual catch Twenty-Two” with no “sin-free avenue” available for pleading ignorant dissent.

No, no, you might claim, “the devil made me do it…” perhaps in an ...

A Willing Heart

Hebrews 13:16 (KJV) But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Do you want to please God?  Here He told us the way any sincere child of God can please Him.  Tucked into the middle of the thirteenth chapter of the book of Hebrews amongst other imperatives, God used the Apostle Paul to reveal that fellowship with God is a sacrifice that well pleases Him.

Certainly, you understand that ...

Do Not be A Grudge

2 Corinthians 9:7 (KJV) Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

I am sure you are all familiar with a story made into a movie, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.  It is a favorite among many, young and old, and watched throughout the Christmas season.  It portrays a man who had a critical spirit in a season meant ...

The Liberal Soul

Proverbs 11:24-25 (KJV) There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.

Perhaps, for many of you, when you read this verse, the wording “the liberal soul…” confuses.  It seems to indicate, using the modern language of today, a left-leaning individual as opposed to a conservative person.  However, this ...

We are at the beginning stage of a holiday season that includes the giving and receiving of gifts in this world.  That said, this season of giving and receiving most are familiar with ...
