Jesus as the Example of Strength in Weakness Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God… Read more

Why Does God Use Weak People But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ESV) I have always wondered why… Read more

Prophecy Watch: Consolidation of Power in the End Times “Then Jesus replied to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many.” (Matthew 24:4–5, HCSB) Jesus warned us as Christians that we should not be deceived. We are to be on watch in the world affairs because what goes on in the world will show indicators of what will happen in the end. One… Read more

Responsible Love and Money In many places, God tells us to love people, love certain characteristics (Galatians 5:22), and to love Him and His ways. In 1 Timothy 6, God gives us a warning. The source of many kinds (or types) of evil is when we love money. Now, money is to be enjoyed because God gives it. We can make it, we can spend it, we can save it, and we can share it. But we shouldn’t love it…. Read more

Discovering Your New Family Home Then His brothers and His mother came, and standing outside they sent to Him, calling Him. And a multitude was sitting around Him; and they said to Him, “Look, Your mother and Your brothers are outside seeking You.” But He answered them, saying, “Who is My mother, or My brothers?” And He looked around in a circle at those who sat about Him, and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does… Read more

Watching Your Thoughts But that didn’t bother her. She turned to even greater prostitution, remembering her youth when she was a prostitute in Egypt. She lusted after lovers whose attentions were gross and bestial. And so, Oholibah, you celebrated your former days as a young girl in Egypt, when you first allowed yourself to be fondled and caressed. (Ezekiel 23:19-21 NLT) Here we have a very descriptive account of one of two sisters. One sister was named Samaria and the… Read more

Thanking God for His Goodness The scene opens with 70 (maybe 72) disciples from Jesus who have come back from a trip. They have witnessed God work tremendous miracles in their journey. They said that they say demons submit to the power of Jesus. They had gone out and preached that the cities should repent and follow God (Mark 6:10-13). So in the name of Jesus, they saw God work tremendous miracles and powerful events. People were healed from sickness… Read more

Looking Forward Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV) We have come to a new year – 2006. I don’t know about you, but for me, a new year is a time in which I think about making… Read more

What Should We Do for Christmas? On Christmas Eve, we may all come together and prepare for the “Big Day”. The “Big Day” of course is Christmas, a holiday we have been preparing for since October. We know that on Christmas, we go to church, we visit family, we share a big meal, and we exchange gifts. This is what all of our busyness is all about. We are intent on “getting everything done” by Christmas. We are going to… Read more

Life of Grace and Life of Islam More Differences between Christianity and Islam (Galatians 4:21-5:1) Some of you would like to be under the rule of the Law of Moses. But do you know what the Law says? In the Scriptures we learn that Abraham had two sons. The mother of one of them was a slave, while the mother of the other one had always been free. The son of the slave woman was born in the usual way…. Read more
