God’s Requirements

God’s Requirements

Micah 6:8 (KJB) He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

Professing to be a child of God is one thing.  Living what a person declares is another.  It is not choosing to live a life of unfettered freedom.  God places some requirements on every sincere child of God.

God expects His own child to ...

Many Mocked Paul

Acts 17:32-34 (KJB) And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter. 33 So Paul departed from among them. 34 Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

Undoubtedly, Paul ran into all kinds of personalities among the crowds he preached to about the resurrection on his ...

They Lacked Spiritual Clarity

John 2:19-20 (KJB) Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

Jesus Christ was speaking to the Jewish audience about His body.  He was the temple which would be destroyed.  However, though these people followed Him and were familiar with His teaching, they ...

Though He Speaks of God, A Hypocrite is Distanced from God

Matthew 15:7-9 (KJB) Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

The Bible tells us in many places including both prophecy and precepts that what resides in a man’s heart ...

Intellectual Assent and Spiritual Agreement Are Different

John 2:23-24 (KJB) Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did. 24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men.

Lack of commitment is commonplace today.  Not only is there lack of commitment between men; but often between God and mankind.  Just like in ancient times, a man may make ...

Treasures or Troubles

Treasures or Troubles

Proverbs 15:6 (KJB) In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

This Proverb attempts to help us understand the difference between lasting prosperity and continual spiritual poorness.  Now, this simple precept rings true whether a man is talking about the perpetual state of his spiritual health or the health of his secular state and finances.

When a man chooses to live righteously, the state of his life and ...

Favoritism Forbidden and Genuine Love Expected

James 2:9-10 (KJB) But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Many people get the intent of this scripture verse upside down and backward.  In the verse before this one, God’s Royal Law is mentioned.  This law simply means that if a person chose to ...

Up Close and Personal with the Apostle Paul Series

Philemon 15-16 (KJB) For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever; 16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?

This book contains a marvelous doctrinal account of love and mercy. Philemon departed as a ...

Only One Name is Forever Famed

Philippians 2:9-11 (KJB) Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
