Some Refuse To Get Dressed
Isaiah 61:10-11 (KJV) I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to ... Continue Reading →

Alive In Eternity
Matthew 22:32 (KJV) I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
In the several past verses in this twenty-second chapter of Matthew leading up to this point, God clarifies Himself and His position to the disciples who cannot wrap their head around who He is and forever will be, God!

Mercy Offered To All
Romans 11:30-32 (KJV) For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

John 11:26 (KJV) And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
Physical death for a believer is far different than dying on this earth as an unbeliever. A sincere professing Christian is NEVER separated from God. This fact includes his or her death in this corrupt world. As presented by John here and the Apostle Paul in the book of Romans, a regenerated soul cannot separate from God. God seals saved souls upon ... Continue Reading →

The Old Paths
Jeremiah 6:16-17 (KJV) Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.

This world is all aflutter about new and superior ways. These new-fangled ... Continue Reading →

Set Apart For Service
John 17:18-19 (KJV) As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

Be Concerned About Your Impact On Others
1 Corinthians 10:23 (KJV) All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
The discussion in this scripture came about concerning eating meat in the previous chapter of 1st Corinthians. However, as the Apostle Paul continued to minister to this Corinthian church, he illustrated that they must be concerned about how their individual and collective choices affect others about ...

Spiritual And Carnal Natures
Romans 7:14-16 (KJV) For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
The Apostle Paul elegantly speaks about the sin nature at work in the flesh and God’s spiritual ... Continue Reading →

Galatians 5:1 (KJV) Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
God sent His Only Son to die on Calvary to wipe every person’s sin debt from sin clean. Once a soul chooses to place faith in the cross’s finished work, he has the freedom from sin and bondage, ultimately to stand in spiritual agreement with God and to fulfill His will in their ...

Romans 6:18 (KJV) Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
To lost folks, this short verse might sound a little strange, even hard to understand. However, to regenerate hearts, it speaks about freedom and a natural willingness to serve God for souls who have the Spirit of God onboard their hearts. To lost souls, the word servant or serving, as inside a personal relationship with God, conjures an idea of forced bondage or ... Continue Reading →
