Rules Of The Road

Rules Of The Road

In driving a motor vehicle there are “rules of the road” you must follow for the safety of yourself and others; failure to abide by these can result in penalties at the least, and disaster at the worst! The same principle is true when driving on the “Christian road”. James chapter 4 warns against the […]

Master Of The Storms

Master Of The Storms

There are several times in the Gospels where Jesus had encounters with storms at sea. Keep in mind that two of the things symbolized by the sea are life and people; and some of the things symbolized by storms are adversities, opposition, and difficulties. In Matthew 14:22-23 Jesus sent His disciples on a boat trip […]

Poor And Needy

Poor And Needy

Through Psalm 40 David expresses his reliance on the Lord, confidence in His provision, (cf. verses 6-8 with Hebrews 10:5-7) commitment to Him, and his prayer for deliverance from his enemies. Then wrapping up the Psalm the last verse begins by saying “But I am poor and needy; Yet the Lord thinks upon me …” […]

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

The Reward Of Listening

Throughout the Bible God has promised peace to His people. In Leviticus 26:6 He promised Israel that terrorists, wild beasts, and invading armies would be held at bay, and they would live in peace. In John 14:27 Jesus promised His followers, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you”. Digging deeper into […]

Armed

Armed

In Ephesians 6 beginning with verse 10 the Apostle guided by the Holy Spirit lays out stipulations for the battle we as God’s children are engaged in. He uses the metaphor of a first century Roman soldier in full battle array pointing to the spiritual counterpart for each piece of armor that we must have […]

A Victorious End

A Victorious End

As far as we know The Apostle Paul wrote 2 Timothy from a Roman prison cell that was no more than a dungeon having been arrested for preaching the gospel. At his first court hearing he said “no one stood with me” verse 16, but in the next verse he says “But the Lord stood […]

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 […]
