God Loves Human!

Many of the struggles that we have in life originate in our inaccurate and sometimes erroneous beliefs we have regarding the nature and character of God. There is also an equally inaccurate, belief regarding the true identity and value of man. In the book of Psalms David writes: “When I view and consider Your heavens, […]

Be Not Afraid!

In today’s society, fear has become a normal part of life. It seems to be mans’ ever-present companion. We are continually anxious about the soaring crime rate, the failing economy, wars and rumors of wars and social tensions. These fears leave us feeling out of control, and our hearts fail us because of fear. Fear—the […]

Exposing the Enemy

Mystical Theories About the Devil It’s amazing how much myth surrounds teaching about the devil, and how much has been accepted as truth without question. Most of what people believe is based on other people’s experiences or the insights of those who profess to know more about the devil than the Bible reveals. This inevitably […]

Living in the Fullness of God

As believers, the promise of sharing in the abundant (Zoe) life of God and living in His fullness is a great privilege. It’s not some future goal. It’s reality because we are seated together with Christ in heavenly places. Jesus said, “… the person whose ears are open to My words who listens to My […]

Establishing A New Heart

As a believer, you already have the very life of God right here and now! God preplanned for us to have His life from the beginning of time (Eph. 2:10). Before we were saved, our hearts were established in a belief system based on worldly views, self-effort and performance. But when we accept Jesus, we […]

The Heart and the Power of Belief

Jesus spoke to the father of the boy with an evil spirit in Mark 9, and said, “…If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23 (KJV) After Jesus cursed the fig tree, He said, “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou […]

Practical Partnership in the Kingdom

For our future success, we must realize that we can’t do anything about our past, but we can do something about our future. Paul said: I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. …For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry…. —I Corinthians 3:4-9 Husbandry means management team! If we […]

God’s Righteous Judgment

The Righteous Judgment of God! Nothing causes more emotional pain, mental anguish and instability than the expectation of retribution and impending punishment, especially when it comes to the wrath and judgment of God! Many people believe they have committed some unforgivable sin, invoking God’s anger and impending judgment! Since, therefore, [these His] children share in […]

God’s Restoring Grace

Every person has a divinely implanted destiny and purpose, and we can never really be fully satisfied unless we live out that destiny and purpose through Christ. Ecclesiastes says, He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working […]

Jesus Changes Everything: And We are Safe and Sound

The validity of the New Testament Gospel message is based upon the crucifixion of Christ, signifying the finished work of the cross. When it comes to interpreting Scripture, we need to have a Christ- centered view. Jesus, and what He accomplished on the cross, CHANGED EVERYTHING! The New Covenant – A Superior Covenant When we […]

The Deception of Self Righteousness

One of the biggest deceptions in the world, especially in the Church, is that of performance-religion and self- righteousness. There’s a huge emphasis on maintaining the moral standards of the so-called “Judeo-Christian-value system.” We hear: “I’m a good Christian.” “I belong to a church.” “I go to a home group.” “I read my Bible.” “I […]

Discovering True Love

John is known as the apostle of love. Let’s look at some well-known verses in one of his letters. Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God…. —1 John 4:7-8 Unfortunately, this scripture has […]
