What is Discipleship? A Bible Study

Most believers say they are Christian, when asked, but few will say, “I’m a follower” or “disciple of Jesus Christ.” Seeking Disciples God doesn’t want any more religious people (remember the Pharisees?). He wants disciples after His own heart, with the express purpose of being more like Christ. Jesus Christ said, “any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple” (Luke 14:33). That’s a very radical thing to say, Jesus! What does that… Read more

Is Praying In Jesus’ Blood Biblical?

Does praying in the name of Jesus’ blood match what Scripture says what we ought to pray? In Jesus’ Name I take a lot of prayer requests at our church and our church loves to pray for others. It doesn’t matter if they’re from our church or not, but to know how to pray is important, and we must be biblical when we pray, and to learn how to pray in the way Jesus taught His disciples. One way to… Read more

Jesus’ Seven I Am Statements

What were the implications of Jesus using the “I Am” statements about Himself in the New Testament? Bread from Heaven When the Jews were wandering in the wilderness due to their disobedience of not crossing over into the Promised Land, God provided for “manna,” or as it were, “manna from heaven,” so the Jews knew exactly what Jesus was talking about when He said “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes… Read more

How God Grants The Desires Of Our Heart: A Bible Study On Psalm 37

How does God grant the desires of our hearts? Psalm 37 tells us how. Trust in God If we truly trust God, we won’t be seeking to find our own solutions to things because God’s Word has answers for our everyday life. David writes, “Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness” (Psalm 37:3) and your anxieties will disappear. If you trust God, then nothing should trouble your heart, so we begin with trust…. Read more

Are There Sins That God Will Not Forgive?

Are there any sins that God will not forgive for those who trust in Christ? No Excuse When someone asks if they can be forgiven of a sin they think is unforgiveable, they might not understand the depths and riches of God’s mercy, because the Apostle John wrote, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1st John 1:9). When Jesus mentioned the unforgivable sin, He… Read more

Terrible Times Are Coming The Apostle Paul, in writing about the last days to Timothy, wrote “that in the last days there will come times of difficulty” (2nd Tim 3:1).

In What Ways Does God Chastise His Children?

God says that He chastises every child of His but why and in what ways does God discipline His children? Discipline and Love You cannot separate discipline from love because a lack of discipline in one’s own children or one’s own life shows a lack of love for their children or for the Lord. Jesus said, “Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father,… Read more

How Should Believers Respond To Non-Believers?

How should Christians react to those who reject Christ? What does the Bible tell us? What Not to Do I have had a few experiences where Christians not only lashed out at one another, but they’ve even resorted to derogatory remarks or comments, and more often than not, it’s over a non-essential area. Surely this must grieve the Holy Spirit and quench His work in us, but it also ruins our witness for Christ. How can we expect to be… Read more

How Can Christians Be Holy As God Commands Them?

The Bible admonishes us to be holy, but how is that possible with sinful creatures? Living in Holiness A Christian is commanded to be holy, which includes living a life that is holy and abstaining from things like sexual immorality, but the Christian should realize that this doesn’t save them. We can’t assume that just because we’re told to be holy, and then strive to please God, that this has anything to do our salvation. It’s not part of our… Read more
