Appears To All
Titus 2:11-13 (KJV) For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
The gift of God is the salvation of lost souls. I hope you also recognize that God has made this gift available to all ... Continue Reading →

All Flesh Bless
Psalm 145:21 (KJV) My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
David is fondly speaking about praising God. David desires all souls adore God. I hope you know that David’s desire matches God’s yearning for all humanity to worship and to love Him. Since sin’s presence on this earth, God attempts to reach every soul with His gospel message. However, some choose to disregard ... Continue Reading →

Revelation 5:13 (KJV) And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
One word in this scripture verse is critical – EVERY. God declares that every creature everywhere will hear this message glorifying ... Continue Reading →

God Does Not Need Pitbulls
Galatians 5:22-23 (KJV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
These verses give humanity the character traits of the fruit of the Spirit. An important thing to note is that not one attribute demands His followers be aggressive or mean towards other souls, saved or lost. God calls for quite the opposite demeanor from His spiritual family.
Please understand that God ... Continue Reading →

A Look Ahead
John 16:20 (KJV) Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
Jesus is talking to His disciples. He alludes to a particular moment yet to come shortly. However, His comments concerning this coming evet are not understood by the disciples, at least that is until later. Isn’t it true hindsight is more apparent than any ... Continue Reading →

The Common Salvation
Jude 3 (KJV) Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
The writer of Jude was conscientious to write as God stirred his heart about the common salvation. The word common in this verse indicates, as God teaches, His salvation is for every soul, ... Continue Reading →

Proverbs 11:30 (KJV) The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
The wisdom at work in this world differs from the lasting knowledge of God. What is held as important in the “here and now” pales in comparison to what God declares essential. God tells us here in this scripture that witnessing to others and in effect the winning of souls as God works in softened hearts is a ... Continue Reading →

John 10:26-27 (KJV) But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
These scripture verses beg us to ask ourselves, “Am I a sheep or a goat?” As you likely know, Jesus Christ calls saved souls His Sheep and lost souls goats in other pertinent verses. Here He is referring to goats who do not believe Jesus Christ ... Continue Reading →

Rejoice, Weep, And Be Unpretentious
Romans 12:15-16 (KJV) Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
These verses give us three directives to accompany our church fellowship and to apply in our everyday relationships as we walk in this world. God directs us to rejoice with those who rejoice, weep ... Continue Reading →

A Discriminatory Attitude
James 2:8-9 (KJV) If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
God is not a respecter of persons according to any of the world’s popular division techniques, including race, skin color, world-based position, age, or other designation. In fact, I hope you know that dividing people by ... Continue Reading →
