God created mankind after the image of God, so what does this mean? The Distorted Image After Adam and Eve choose to disobey God and choose for themselves what is good and what is evil, the image of God was distorted. Sin has a way of doing that. From now on, for Adam and Eve, “There is a way that seems right to a man” but they found out, “its end is the way to death” (Prov 14:12). Originally, “God… Read more

Thanksgiving isn’t just a holiday…thanksgiving is a way of life. Thanks for Giving Thanksgiving may be my favorite holiday of all, but I don’t limit my times of thanksgiving to just one day a year. In fact, I try to be thankful every day of the year and give thanksgiving…thanksgiving to God. The truth is that God was the first giver. And He gave the most. The Scriptures say, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only… Read more

The gospels contain accounts that are symbolic of salvation, but you can also find the gospel message within the gospels themselves. The Bad News Have you ever flashed your headlights to warn another driver to slow down because there’s a speed trap ahead of them? You are trying to warn them. A few might slow down if they’re breaking the speed limit, but not all, so that’s what the law of God does. It tells us what sin is (Rom… Read more

Persecution doesn’t feel good at the time, but it’s actually a very good thing for the believer. All the Godly The Apostle Paul reminded Timothy that “all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Tim 3:12), while at the same time, “evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Tim3:13). I think Paul wanted Timothy to know that because he had likely experienced persecution. He… Read more

Joshua chapter 1 is a great chapter for anyone, but especially if you’re going through a time of transition. The Mentoring History has shown that Joshua has been faithful and he and Caleb alone gave a good report about the Promised Land when they spied it out. These two men knew God would go before them and they could take the land, but they were outnumbered by 10 to 2, and Israel remained in the wilderness for 40 more years…. Read more

Where would we be without our friends? In tribute to our friends and all godly friendships, here is what the Bible says about friendship. Faithful The Bible is clear that we all need friends. Friends can comfort us in times of sorrow, they can celebrate with us in our joys, and they can be there when we need them. The proverb is true that “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity” (Prov 17:17). Think… Read more

We are taught to be givers, but give without expecting in return, so why is it so easy to attach strings to our gifts? Give without Expecting Jesus told us to “give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you” (Luke 6:38). God has said, “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the… Read more

The Bible says we are to be new creations of Christ, and we put on the new self, so how’s that possible? The Old Self Years ago, when I came to repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, I was sick and tired of my old life, my old sins, and my old self. It was obviously the conviction of the Holy Spirit that brought me to a recognition that I was abiding in the wrath of God since… Read more

Most politicians are a little like the Old Testament false prophets of old, only telling people what they want to hear. False Prophets At the time, Jeremiah the Prophet was badly outnumbered by the false prophets in Judea. And it wasn’t even close. Naturally, they scorned Jeremiah’s word to repent and return to God in obedience, before it was too late, so when Jeremiah spoke the actual words of God, all he heard was, “This man deserves the sentence of… Read more

The Bible says that not many mighty or noble are called, but why does Jesus say many are called, but few are chosen? Many are Called In referring to the Parable of the Wedding Feast, which is about who will be and who won’t be in the kingdom, Jesus said that “many are called, but few are chosen” (Matt 22:14). This is why Christ taught that we must “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the… Read more
