A Man’s Faith Stands Strong with God

1 Corinthians 2:2-5 (KJB) For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but ...

March 17th, 2019

Life Is Not All About Me, Myself, and I

Philippians 2:20-21 (KJB) For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. 21 For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.

The Apostle Paul made these remarks in dealing with Roman associates who often resorted to taking care of their own needs and feelings rather than noticing the needs of others about them.  Anotherwards, they placed their individual needs ahead of the collective ...

It is Not Always About Money

Mark 14:4-7 (KJB) And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? 5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor.

Sin is Never A Bargain

1 Peter 2:24 (KJB) Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Sin is expensive to the sinner.

Sin is expensive to everyone; strangers, friends, acquaintances and family members around a person choosing to sin.  An individual is always affected by second-hand consequences of sin.

Sin is expensive for every spiritually lost soul.

Sin was never ...

A Man of God Has Nothing to Prove

Psalm 34:18 (KJB) The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

A prideful person attempts to prove himself repeatedly.  Why?  Because he often fails and falls flat in his relentless pursuit of perfection.  The more he tries often, the worse his situation can become.  Before long he has dug a hole and cannot get himself out of his trouble.

A ...

Abraham Stayed Strong in Faith

Romans 4:20 (KJB) He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God.

You know the feeling.  You hear something on the news or read something posted on a social media platform, and it sounds too good to be true.  You scrutinize the fine print or strain to hear every detail as you consider the promise at hand.

Why, because promises are broken all the time in ...

What If We Were All Ears?

1 Corinthians 12:17 (KJB) If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

This verse is one of a series of scripture verses which present the importance of each member serving both individually and collectively within the church.  A church is not reliant upon all eyes, or all ears, but it is vital that there are many people with varying abilities and talents ...

Work Out Your Salvation with Fear and Trembling

Philippians 2:12 (KJB) Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

The fear and trembling mentioned in these verses are about having a healthy spiritual fear of God. It is not a fear based on events or circumstances in this world for God is greater than the sum of our ...

Polluted Fruit from a Lame Bunch

Malachi 1:12-14 (KJB) But ye have profaned it, in that ye say, The table of the LORD is polluted; and the fruit thereof, even his meat, is contemptible. 13 Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD of hosts; and ye brought that which was torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your ...

Hypocritical Separation Rubs Off on Barnabas

Galatians 2:12-13 (KJB) For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. 13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.

Peter sat down to eat with the Gentile believers of the Antioch Church.  This fellowship among believers began before several people arrived ...
