The Bible has a lot to say about faith, from Genesis to Revelation, but here are five vital things to know about faith in God. More than Hope – Hebrews 11 Why do believers know that faith is more than just hoping for something? They know that faith is the assurance of the things we hope in, but it’s also the conviction of the things we do not yet see (Heb 11:1). When we’re driving over a hill, we have… Read more

The Bible mentions being “in Christ,” so what does this mean, and how can we be sure to be found in Christ? Outside of Christ It is very clear. Those outside of Christ are outside of the will of God and have the wrath of God abiding on them as it currently stands. They are in a hopeless state. They cannot save themselves any more than Lazarus could have raised himself from the dead. He needed some help, but for… Read more

It’s almost impossible to know what’s inside of a person, so why are we so quick to judge? Forgiving Others John 3:16 is a beautiful verse that speaks of the immeasurable gift that the Father gave of His Son for our forgiveness of sins. Even so, John 3:17 completes this thought since it says, “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him,” so… Read more

The older I get, the more I realize just how precious and valuable friends are, so here are three important reminders about the kind of friends we need. A Friend for Adversity There’s something about having that one close, personal relationship with a friend. It’s something special to be sure, but it’s more than that. It’s a special bonding of two souls who come together as friends in order to do more together than they ever could alone. Marriages are… Read more

Do you have difficulty in knowing how or what to pray? Do what many have done before, and pray back the Scriptures to God. Confession of Sin One of the top Bible verses to use in prayer, and particularly in praying for forgiveness, is found in Psalm 51. This may be one of the greatest prayers of repentance in the Bible. Apparently, this psalm was written by David not long after Nathan called him out as committing adultery and conspiracy… Read more

Have you made New Year’s resolutions before? Have you kept them? Here are resolutions that may last more than a month. Mind over Mattress One of the keys to changing your new year is to get up a little bit earlier in the mornings so you don’t have to rush around and forget to do certain things. One morning I was in such a rush, I forgot to shave, and read my Bible (more important). I determined to change that,… Read more

This time of the year is all about giving, but for some, it’s more about getting, but the greatest gift ever given is often overlooked. Getting by Losing For the world in general, the Christmas season is the most giving time of the year. For corporations, it is no doubt the same thing, however, their year-end donations are more tax write-offs than anything benevolent because they use it as a way of reducing their company’s tax liability and it is… Read more

Jesus spoke some very controversial verses in the Bible, many of which are still controversial, so here are some of Jesus’ most controversial statements in the Bible and why He said them. Luke 14:26 If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. If you read this at face value and without reading the context, you… Read more

There is power in the Word of God, and especially in these six powerful Bible verses that are excellent for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. You’ll notice right away that many of these Bible verses about sharing the gospel are from the Book of Romans. Some use verses such as Romans 3:10-12, 3:23, and 6:23 to show sinners their state before a holy God. It… Read more

Humanly speaking, some things are impossible, but with God, all things are possible, especially with the words “but God.” But God But God! What an amazing set of words! Every time I read a verse that says “but God,” it is fantastically good news that follows. There are literally dozens of verses that have “but God” in both the Old and New Testaments, and even when I witness to people, I often hear, “yeah, but,” like “I have too much… Read more
