God’s Eternal Present

December 19, 2020

God’s Eternal Present

Romans 6:23 (KJV) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Everything that God offers for humanity, satan has an alternate gift.  Here in this verse, God contrasts for our learning the presence of sin and eternal life.  Each of these lies at opposing ends of the spiritual spectrum, with one given freely to all by God with no adverse strings attached.  The other, an ...

Diversities of Gifts

December 18, 2020

Diversities of Gifts

1 Corinthians 12:4 (KJV) Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

Those tied to this world in mind and heart think of gifts as material matters or tangible items only.  When they think about the giving and receiving of gifts, their understanding is limited by what they know and see in this world.  However, it is essential to understand that gifts of the Spirit of God are spiritual and not necessarily viewable and do ...

Acts 2:38 (KJV) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

The Gift of Faith

Romans 12:3 (KJV) For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

His Unspeakable Gift

His Unspeakable Gift

2 Corinthians 9:15 (KJV) Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

Indeed, you can look to a Christmas past and describe for me a special gift you have received from another.  Especially if this gift is near and dear to your heart and remains one of your most treasured possessions.  This affinity for something special can be a precious gift from your childhood or even a special present from a loved one or close friend.

However, when ...

Whatsoever Covers Every Situation

Whatsoever Covers Every Situation

Colossians 3:17 (KJV) And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Whatever you do, this statement encompasses every act, thought, and every word you speak.  In other words, all means all and not just some.  All means in every moment and is not speaking of a part-time religion where a person can reserve times to feel religious.

Not only ...

God Does Not Change His Calling

God Does Not Change His Calling

Romans 11:29 (KJV) For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

The potential for the gift and calling of God never change, fade, or become obsolete as long as this world is present on this earth.  In fact, did you note right here, the Word of God tells us that the gifts and calling are without repentance? 

But without repentance, what exactly does this mean?

It means that God will not ever take back ...

It Is Not About You

Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJV) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Here it is, the secret to making the most of this season meant for celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ as we sojourn in this wicked world. I hope you understand that the gift of God, the gospel message, is revealed to us for our ...

A Good Steward

A Good Steward

1 Peter 4:10 (KJV) As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

Did you notice that this verse inspired to be recorded by the Apostle Peter tells us that every spiritually regenerate man is given the capability to minister the truth of the gospel message to lost hearts?  In fact, God compels each of us to be good stewards of the ...

Characteristics Of Serving God

December 10, 2020

Characteristics Of Serving God

2 Corinthians 6:6-8 (KJV) By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true.

God does not just set His spiritual family out on a limb and expect them to be naturally giving ...
