A Look Ahead

John 16:20 (KJV) Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

Jesus is talking to His disciples.  He alludes to a particular moment yet to come shortly.  However, His comments concerning this coming evet are not understood by the disciples, at least that is until later. Isn’t it true hindsight is more apparent than any ...

A Push For Telling Others About Christ

Romans 10:14-15 (KJV) How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

These verses ask ...

The Common Salvation

The Common Salvation

Jude 3 (KJV) Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

The writer of Jude was conscientious to write as God stirred his heart about the common salvation.  The word common in this verse indicates, as God teaches, His salvation is for every soul, ...

How Is Your Prayer Life?

Psalm 55:16-17 (KJV) As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

David shares about his prayer life.  The Bible tells us that David is a man after God’s own heart two times, 1st Samuel 13:14, Acts 13:22.  This report does not mean that the life David lives on this earth is ...

Winning Souls

March 30, 2021

Winning Souls

Proverbs 11:30 (KJV) The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

The wisdom at work in this world differs from the lasting knowledge of God.  What is held as important in the “here and now” pales in comparison to what God declares essential.  God tells us here in this scripture that witnessing to others and in effect the winning of souls as God works in softened hearts is a ...

My Sheep

My Sheep

John 10:26-27 (KJV) But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.

These scripture verses beg us to ask ourselves, “Am I a sheep or a goat?”  As you likely know, Jesus Christ calls saved souls His Sheep and lost souls goats in other pertinent verses.  Here He is referring to goats who do not believe Jesus Christ ...

Rejoice, Weep, And Be Unpretentious

Romans 12:15-16 (KJV) Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

These verses give us three directives to accompany our church fellowship and to apply in our everyday relationships as we walk in this world.  God directs us to rejoice with those who rejoice, weep ...

A Discriminatory Attitude

A Discriminatory Attitude

James 2:8-9 (KJV) If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.

God is not a respecter of persons according to any of the world’s popular division techniques, including race, skin color, world-based position, age, or other designation.  In fact, I hope you know that dividing people by ...

The Source of Our Strength

The Source of Our Strength

Philippians 4:13 (KJV) I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Sadly, people often use this verse outside of the biblical context that God gave it to us.  In this verse, the emphasis is placed upon the power and presence of God.  However, when people quote this verse relating it to their lives, the revealed source of their power and position working in their life often comes from self, rather than from God.  ...

The Battle Is Spiritual

The Battle Is Spiritual

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 (KJV) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.

We often attempt to live in our flesh and skirmish with other people serving their flesh as they live in this world.  How often is it that you see a father against a mother, a mother against a ...
