Love Is

Love Is

Love is an attribute of God the seed of which is implanted within at the New Birth. Jesus said “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” John 13:35. This love (Greek, Agape) is not just an emotional feeling that we tend to associate with love, […]

Fellowship Of Believers

Fellowship Of Believers

In 1 John 1:3 we read these words, “That which we have seen and heard we declare to you…” Remember John had seen Jesus with his own physical eyes, and heard His words with his own physical ears and it was what he saw and heard that he was anxious to share with his Christian […]

Submission

Submission

  It seems that the Judahites Thought of themselves as God’s chosen race that would always experience God’s good blessings, failing to keep in mind that those blessings are only attained to by abiding in and keeping His covenant. Because of blatant sin, moral decline, and rebellion, Babylon came against Jerusalem and captured it bringing […]

   All For Jesus

   All For Jesus

Imagine the excitement of a lad in the crowd around Jesus in John 6; when there is a need for food he offers his five barley loaves and two small fish, but Andrew  asks “what are they among so many?” But Jesus took that meager supply, which was obviously all the boy had, gave thanks […]

Restoration

Restoration

Peter loved the Lord very dearly, yet in a moment of weakness he stumbled. Jesus in that wonderful foreknowledge of God knew this would happen and warned Peter in advance, adding, “I have prayed for you that your faith should not fail” Luke 22:31-32. What a wonderful thought that if we stumble in a moment […]

Followers Of Jesus

Followers Of Jesus

As followers of the Lord Jesus we have been commissioned to carry on His ministry here on earth while He prepares a place for us in heaven (John 14:2-3). This is illustrated to us in the parable of the minas in Luke19:11-37 in which the nobleman equipped his servants and instructed them to “Do business […]

Who Are You Looking To?

Who Are You Looking To?

In the book of Hebrews chapter 12 verse 2 the writer begins saying, “Looking unto Jesus …” It is by looking unto Him that we receive illumination; in John 8:12 He said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Only […]

In The Dark Hour

In The Dark Hour

  Have you ever struggled through a dark night season where it seemed like when will this ever end? This happens in the natural, but it also happens in the spiritual as we encounter the forces of “the darkness of this age (world KJV)” Ephesians 6:12. In Mark 6:45-51 the disciples encountered such an experience […]

How Strong Is Your Foundation?

How Strong Is Your Foundation?

Jesus was the greatest teacher that ever walked the face of this earth, often using stories or parables to teach the principles of the kingdom of God. In Matthew 7:24-27 is one such allegory of two carpenters who each built a house, the difference being that one of them made sure he had a solid […]
