Spinning Your Tires
2 Timothy 3:7 (KJB) Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
This short verse describes the state of many people in this world. Numerous empty hearts only continually search for the wisdom and understanding of God, but sadly they are looking in the wrong places. This innate searching is a natural behavior only satisfied in having a personal relationship with God.
Cracking a book and learning world-based knowledge does nothing for a ... Continue Reading →

Rejection of God is Nothing New
John 5:45-47 (KJB) Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
The people of ancient times are no different than people alive on this earth today. Many people are ... Continue Reading →

Anything Set Against God Will Fail
Proverbs 21:30 (KJB) There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.
Anybody who is intimately familiar with the ways of God can personally relate to this wisdom found in the book of Proverbs. In fact, this scenario is playing out all over this world as people line up their lives according to the fluctuating sense of mankind at work in this world. These far-flung ideas stand in opposition to the will ... Continue Reading →

He Imputed Our Sin to Himself
2 Corinthians 5:19 (KJB) To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
When trying to understand the spiritual transactions of Calvary, it helps to think of computations on a ledger. Or reconciling a bank account.
The math of the cross is simply this: God sent His Only Son to die for the sin of the world. ... Continue Reading →

What Is Reasonable Service?
Romans 12:1 (KJB) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
This verse begs us to ask and examine what is reasonable service?
God has an expectation upon the life of every child of God. He has a will for each of us and a journey He desires for us to embark on in this world. This is ... Continue Reading →

If Her Fruit Departs
Exodus 21:22-25 (KJB) If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. 23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, 24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 Burning for ...

On the Straight and Narrow
Matthew 7:14 (KJB) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
It is true, the road most traveled in this world is an open highway leading to certain physical and spiritual death. It is the pathway of least resistance, the most inviting as it calls to the flesh, and is littered with emotions and feelings, and ignores the reality of the Truth ... Continue Reading →

1 Thessalonians 5:16 (KJB) Rejoice evermore.
We live in a wicked land of happy hours, adventures, and much time set aside for such hoopla and celebration. This time of festivity is a lot of fun to many people, especially those with unregenerate hearts. Alcohol is not looked upon with favor and festivity in God’s Word. In fact, a lot of wicked things happened in ancient times because of the presence of consuming alcohol.
God does tell us to rejoice ... Continue Reading →

Run with Spiritual Pose and Purpose
1 Corinthians 9:26-27 (KJB) I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
I know we have all seen a boxing match a time or two where one of the opponents gets exceptionally tired in the ring. ... Continue Reading →

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 ... Continue Reading →
