Willing To Sacrifice

Acts 20:24 (KJV) But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Persistence amid persecution is a part of a sincere, godly character.  The Apostle Paul, penning this at the inspiration of God, ought to know this well. These traits are evident ...

Matthew 10:32-33 (KJV) Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

Outwardly We Face Death Daily But…

2 Corinthians 4:16 (KJV) For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

Give Not

Matthew 7:6 (KJV) Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Just recently, we went through some “not” verses.  Guess what? I located another one I want to discuss.  This verse seems to advise about witnessing about Christ to others, even pointing out that there are times and places to tell others about Christ, and in some ...
