God’s Word says believers were chosen by God, but for what reason and purpose? Why? The main question I have about why God had chosen me is, “Why?” I know there was nothing in particular that God saw in me and made that decision based upon that. The only reason I can think of was that God loved me. Even here, there is no human explanation for God sending His Son to die for me; someone who was an ungodly,… Read more

The Apostle Paul explains the reason for God’s laws, which makes God’s grace even more amazing. By Faith or by Works The Apostle Paul addressed a very big problem for the Galatians, but also for a lot of believers, and that was legalism. Just after they were introduced to the gospel of salvation by grace and not by works, some cunning Jews came in to subvert the gospel by adding works to it. Even though many of them had been… Read more

The meaning of the resurrection and the consequences of it, have changed millions of people’s eternity forever. He Must Go There is no sacrifice that could have satisfied the wrath of God except the life of the Holy Son of God, Jesus Christ. His perfect, sinless life was the only way that we could be reconciled back to God. Jesus came to give His own life as a ransom for those who would trust in Him (Mark 10:45). Near the… Read more

Jesus’ sinless life and death on the cross are where judgment and mercy meet. The Judgment The Apostle Paul writes about those who are practicing evil deeds which is only serving to store up more wrath against the Day of Judgment (Rom 2:5), so there will be a day when God “will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but… Read more

Isaiah the Prophet wrote a stunningly accurate portrait of Jesus’ all-encompassing work before, at, and after the cross. Before the Cross Isaiah the Prophet wrote Isaiah 53 with the Messiah in mind. He starts out by a statement that could have been made during Jesus’ earthly ministry: “Who has believed what he has heard from us? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed” (Isaiah 53:1). Not many did follow Jesus after some of His hard teachings… Read more

How can we endure when grief and sorrow wash over us like a wave? Come to Him More often than not, just before God brings a person to repentance and faith, they are broken. Things in life may have brought them to a dead end, or they may have a shattering report from their doctor, but the ironical thing is, God cannot fix what is first not broken, so Jesus Christ says to all who are overloaded with trials, troubles,… Read more

What’s different about the Brethren Church? Read for yourself. The Brethren Church Years ago, when I came to the Brethren Church (offices in Ashland, OH.), I found a church that was devoted to the Word of God and not the traditions of men. I discovered a church that was totally devoted to Christ or was “Christocentric” in their thinking, and a church that upheld the Bible as their standard for worship and practice. Their only creed was the Bible itself,… Read more

What do you say to someone that says, “God spoke to me,” or how do you know when it really is God speaking to you? God Speaks I cannot count the number of times when someone has told me, “God spoke to me and told me to do this,” or “Told me to tell you that you should do that,” but it has turned out to be wrong. One pastor became so sure that God spoke to him about using… Read more

Why do we judge one bad experience from an atheist and presume that they’re all like that, when nothing could be further from the truth. Blessing Haters The Bible teaches that unbelievers (like we once were) cannot believe unless God draws them to Himself through Christ (John 6:44), so all of us at one time were dead in our sins (Eph 2:1-8), but we were quickened by His Spirit and could only then see our need for the Savior, so… Read more

Many claim that there are many paths to God, but what does the Bible say about this? The Way Prior to Jesus’ death on the cross and His ascension into heaven, Jesus told the disciples that “if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also” (John 14:3). He was trying to reassure their troubled hearts. They had grown close to Jesus over… Read more
