Test Yourself Against Truth
2 Corinthians 13:5 (KJB) Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Separate unto Salvation
James 1:21 (KJB) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
This verse draws a certain line. It calls for man to make a clean cut from all kinds of evil and wickedness and be set apart for things of God. It does not say separate from some things but clearly instructs mankind to step away, move apart from, or separate themselves ... Continue Reading →
Cancer Harms Man from the Inside Out
Galatians 5:9 (KJB) A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
This is the latest devotion in our Spiritually Fit Heart Series. Today we will examine both physical and spiritual cancer and the demise it can bring to both physical and spiritual life.

I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me. (Psalm 13:6 KJV)
David made this statement after realizing how bountifully God had dealt with him when he was so undeserving of any goodness from God.

Is Your Nature “Alive and Kicking”?
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. (Romans 8:16-17 KJV)
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit…” Who is The Spirit spoken of in this verse? None other than God. God is a Spirit who bears witness with ... Continue Reading →

Man Is to Conduct a Heart Inspection Before Taking Communion
For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. (1 Corinthians 11:29-30 KJV)
The truth contained in these two scripture verses should certainly cause new Christians along with spiritual veterans who appear to be seasoned and mature Christians, to pause and contemplate.
“For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily…” ... Continue Reading →
God dressed Adam and Eve in His righteousness covering their sin laden darkened spiritual condition illuminated in their own eye gate showing both their spiritual and physical bare nakedness. This uncovering was the result of their nature being twisted or bent away from the righteousness God through their choice to eat of the fruit of the tree God had forbidden them from consuming inside the Garden of Eden.
Their response to being uncloaked was immediately apparent; both to them and ... Continue Reading →
