Spiritual Fishing Ultimately Profits God
Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved. (1 Corinthians 10:33 KJV)

Are you spiritually alive?
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1:18 KJV)
The preaching of the gospel message brings about the supernatural power of God for salvation. It is not man’s works, baptism, following rules, being a good person, or any other work pointing to man’s own power. Salvation only comes exclusively from the supernatural of God.

God Does Not Wink but Sorrows about Sin
And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30 KJV)

Are You an “Oddball”?
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. (Acts 4:12-13 KJV)
True salvation comes with confidence in God. Spiritual boldness is seen as out of control and unnatural in ... Continue Reading →
Natural lusts please man; spiritual desires please God.
And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. (Galatians 5:24 KJV)
Families often have identifying markers or characteristics that weld them together. Often siblings look similar physically to each other and to their parents. These physical characteristics often identify family members apart from others.
Living in God’s spiritual family leaves identifying marks or spiritual features eternally stamped upon the lives of His own. Those who profess an ... Continue Reading →

Have you judged yourself against the Truth of God’s Word or according to the opinion of mankind?
But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. (Romans 14:10-11 KJV)
