Where does your strength come from?

October 18, 2018

Where does your strength come from?

….someone asks Samson.

Contingent upon faith

October 18, 2018

The quality of our spiritual life is contingent upon our faith, because God has given us all things in Christ, and these are appropriated by faith.

Success through prayer

October 18, 2018

Our success has much more to do with prayer than we may ever know in this life.

Sweeping away the cobwebs

October 18, 2018

The words of God can sweep away doubt and unbelief like a broom sweeps away cobwebs.

Hard miracles?

October 17, 2018

With God, it’s not like there are some easy miracles and some more difficult ones.

Man may see it that way, but the God who created the Universe doesn’t.

We want to be convinced

October 17, 2018

There’s some details in the Christian life where we really don’t want others telling us what to do, we want to be convinced by the Spirit and the Word of Truth. If we merely lived by what others told us or expected us to do, what kind of life would that be? We would miss out on knowing Jesus Christ in every aspect of life.

Glory never ends

October 17, 2018

Glory or vain-glory?

Glory never ends, but vain-glory ends abruptly.

The SAD thing is if we are willing to trade eternal glory for fleeting vain-glory.

Take your pick

October 16, 2018

There is either glory or vain-glory, take your pick.

Even when we sleep

October 16, 2018

You can stand by faith and trust Him for all the needs of life, because He’s always at work, even when we sleep, just as He promised, if you can believe it, or, rather, believe Him.

Where life comes from

October 16, 2018

People want a lot of stuff, but they don’t want life.

Life only comes from Jesus.

Still rings through the ages

October 16, 2018

“…When you pray, say...” still rings through the ages, if anyone cares to take note.

Don’t be too impressed

October 15, 2018

Don’t trust in, or be too impressed by anything you couldn’t get by simply reading the Bible.

Great love

October 15, 2018

Sincere prayer for others is a great act of love.

Of course, it doesn’t end there.

Popular

October 15, 2018

God has never been popular, and it appears He doesn’t have a problem with that.

Atonement

October 15, 2018

Someone says, “Jesus took away the sin of the world therefore there is no sin remaining.”

Answer: The atonement is universal in scope, but it must be received by faith.

According to your logic, a person doesn’t need to receive God’s forgiveness, they are already forgiven.

How is it possible to lose ETERNAL life?

October 14, 2018

Someone poses the question: If a person has eternal life, how can they lose it if it is indeed “eternal” life?

Answer:

We have and possess eternal life knowing it is HIS life we are partaking of in our earthen vessels, and hence the NUMEROUS warnings to Christians in the NT not to turn away from the LORD, with the subsequent consequences, because IF we turn away we would no longer be living by His life.

It’s the nature of Christ’s life which is eternal. It’s HIS life. If people turn away they no longer have HIS life, so they no longer have eternal life, they’ve forfeited it.

So then it’s simple: don’t turn away. It becomes particularly relevant when a Christian is falling back into sin, and they have to decide which they will have: the sin, or eternal life, as they can’t have both.

The real business

October 13, 2018

Intercession for people is the real business of Christians, and the other business has to wait.

Relevance of “theology”

October 13, 2018

The term “theology” is often misused for man’s own agenda, but the main point is that what we believe about God’s nature and works is vitally important, crucial, and absolutely relevant to the way we live, what kind of person we are becoming, whether we glorify Him or not, and even whether we survive.

The most powerful people on earth

October 12, 2018

Christians who pray are the most powerful people on earth, actually.

Hey, Christians are not dumb

October 12, 2018

To  counter the popular media caricature presenting  Christians as stupid:

“According to 100 Years of Nobel Prizes a review of Nobel prizes award between 1901 and 2000 reveals that (65.4%) of Nobel Prizes Laureates, have identified Christianity in its various forms as their religious preference.  Overall, Christians have won a total of 72.5% of all the Nobel Prizes in Chemistry,  65.3% in Physics,  62% in Medicine, 54% in Economics.”
