  •  In one the Apostle Paul’s letters there is a statement by which he begins to summarize what he had just written. He had begun with his treatise in Romans chapter 7. Many times in this writer’s journey as a Christian, I have hurriedly turned to only one verse in his summing up of the Christian life,…

  •  Most of those of us who confess to be Christians are familiar with the following: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” - Luke 10:27 There is a peculiar irony concerning us…

  • Nothing strikes terror in the mind of a student in school more than the word “test”! Our lives are, as Christians, sometimes filled with God’s testing. His testing is not to determine whether we “fail’ or “pass“. If we belong to Christ, He sometimes tests us in order to strengthen…

  •  The Beginning? There are several references in the Bible that refer to a “beginning” or “beginnings”. Some include reference to an “end” or “endings” of an event or events. Jesus refers these dramatic events as the beginning of the end. Sorrows and unimaginable…

  • Is it wrong as a Christian to seek eternal rewards from God? The Apostle Paul affirms that every Christian who remains faithful until they die will also receive an award from Jesus.

  •  Do you find yourself reliving and rerunning your life, reflecting on your life as far back as you can remember? As we all grow older, this tendency increases for some. And eventually they may wonder why…why does the mind tend to begin to play reruns of events from our past? Assuming that it does (and will)…

  • There is an old Christian melody that includes the phrase. “…troubles trouble us all”. Who among us, if we are striving to live as Christ wants us to live, have not experienced troubles of one kind or another. In a world that steadily grows more dangerous and difficult to live in as Christians, at…

  • Have you heard any bad news lately? Are we entering the “time of the end? Most who are middle age or older have probably heard much regarding the prophesied time of the end…when Jesus returns and prevents the destruction of all mankind. There is a theory regarding world affairs and their relation to…

  • The two are beautiful illustrations of the principle of “type and anti-type“; the same at different times, and in different ways, in different places.

  • During the years that the Apostle Paul preached to and guided the converts of that day, he admonished the churches under his responsibility according to the necessities that he observed in all the churches of that dispensation of the gospel.

  • Regardless of yesterday, today, or tomorrow as we walk each day, striving to live in Christ, the third member of the Godhead, is always with us and in us. Being convinced is the challenge.
