Treasure Beyond Wealth

Treasure Beyond Wealth

Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels…” that is we have the treasure of Jesus Christ with the light, knowledge, and power He brings within these earthen vessels of clay, which like all vessels made of clay are weak and very fragile. In Romans 7:18 the Apostle said […]

Trustworthy, Dependable, Unfailing

Trustworthy, Dependable, Unfailing

Our title of Trustworthy, Dependable, and Unfailing are all descriptive terms of God and His word. It is very obvious that the Psalmist had a great love for this word and the God who spoke it! In Psalm 19 he begins by magnifying God for His great creation which was brought about in response to […]

The Difference

The Difference

Without question Jesus makes a difference in every life into which He is invited. Ephesians chapter two takes us on an exciting journey from death into life; from being controlled by the prince of the power of the air (which is Satan) to sitting together “in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus”; from being alienated […]

The Reward Of Listening

Words

Words

The Bible has much to say about our words. The un-regenerate mouth “is full of cursing” (that is to pray for evil, misfortune or to invoke a curse) “and bitterness” (acrid, especially poisonous), Romans 3:14. James 3:1-12 speaks extensively about our tongue, saying “it is a fire, a world of iniquity … and it is […]

Power From Above

Power From Above

Micah obviously lived in an environment where wicked and false prophets were leading God’s people astray; delivering God’s message to them he distinguishes himself as God’s prophet by saying, “But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord” 3:8. As God’s people we are promised power to live and act differently […]

New Freedom

New Freedom

Jesus told a group of people that were following Him that they really needed to be set free from their old ways, habits, and bondages, in John 8:32-36.
