Zealous About the Law and Lineage

Acts 22:3 (KJB) I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.

Paul Was Relentless

Galatians 1:13-14 (KJB) For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: 14 And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

There was likely hardly a person in these ancient times who was not familiar with Paul, both after his conversion and well ...

Be Unmovable

1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJB) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

The conclusion to this spiritually complex “resurrection chapter” which successfully fillets the gospel message into digestible bite-size chunks and draws every sincere child of God to remain personally stedfast by resting inside God’s spiritual power and presence.

Many Like Words Added

Jeremiah 36:32 (KJB) Then took Jeremiah another roll, and gave it to Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah; who wrote therein from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire: and there were added besides unto them many like words.

The Old Nature is Crucified

Galatians 5:24 (KJB) And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Here is a key verse in living the Christian life.  Those who genuinely belong to Christ have died to self and the calling of the flesh.   Anotherwards what they want and desire in their life is set aside to serve and savor God and to follow His will for their life.

Life becomes all about Him rather than us ...

God Is Forgotten Days Without Number

Jeremiah 2:32 (KJB) Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.

This scripture verse is speaking to God’s chosen people in ancient biblical times.  However, it can be applied in the lives of professing Christians in the current times in which we live.

Often a person has selective memory.  A man can easily recall those times in his life which are special to ...
