Take Criticism and Condemnation With Grace

1 Peter 2:23 (KJV) Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously.

Indeed, you know that the Apostle Peter speaks in this scripture about the gentle, unassuming, loving nature of Jesus Christ, especially when a person points a finger of judgment towards Him, without merit.  As Jesus Christ suffers, he does not treat others with the same contempt and disregard. ...

If You Are In Christ, You Are Pleasing To God

October 14, 2021

If You Are In Christ, You Are Pleasing To God

Philippians 2:13 (KJV) For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

A child of God does not get saved by placing faith in God and pleasing Him with works.  No, God was pleased with the finished work of Jesus Christ on Calvary, and if you are living in Christ and redeemed by His shed blood rather than wrapped up in ...

There Are Two Spirits At Work

1 Corinthians 2:10-12 (KJV) But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is ...

There Will Always Be Both Rich And Poor

Proverbs 22:2 (KJV) The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.

Those striving to equalize society in every fashion, including in the financial realm, would do well to read God’s Word.  This necessary reading includes time spent studying the book of Proverbs.  Stopping this scripture above to pause and drink its complex yet straightforward message each person can choose to take to heart.  The conclusion, there ...

Where Are All The Lions?

Where Are All The Lions?

Proverbs 28:1 (KJV) The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

It seems we live in a world full of lions, but when it comes to those who publically profess a personal relationship with Christ, God’s people often present as meek and mild as field mice.  In other words, the content of this message from scripture seems far removed among lost and saved souls.  Instead, the wicked are ...

Not A Mamma’s Boy

Not A Mamma’s Boy

Proverbs 16:9 (KJV) A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.

The leading and direction of a publically professing man of God are critical, especially true for a man who stands in the pulpit.  Indeed, any man who led to step up the podium must be a humbled man of God whom the Spirit of God leads to commit to teaching and preaching to others. 

It is easy for an overburdened preacher to ...

An Unruly House

An Unruly House

Titus 1:6-7 (KJV) If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre.

These verses lay out the essential attributes of a pastor and the character of his family. Indeed, though no man is perfect, I hope you know that if a ...

Unity Only Possible In Christ

Unity Only Possible In Christ

Psalm 133:1-3 (KJV) A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, ...

Heaven Just Gained Another Angel?

Heaven Just Gained Another Angel?

Hebrews 9:27 (KJV) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

How often do you hear the line “heaven just gained another angel…?”  Well, the truth is a bit different.  Maybe heaven did, and then again, perhaps did not receive another soul.  This verse from Hebrews gives us the truth about the imminence of death and the coming wrath of God against sin.  However, no verse, including this ...

God Can Use Our Situation For His Glory

God Can Use Our Situation For His Glory

Romans 8:28 (KJV) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that God can use each one of us, mistakes, warts, and all!  This verse brings comfort and joy to countless sincere professing children of God worldwide.  The context of this verse expresses the truth that no matter what state ...
