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

Have you noticed the disappearance of sympathy and how it’s been replaced with judgment? Sympathy Sympathy has been described as having pity or sorrow over someone else’s loss or misfortune, but sympathy can be encouraging to the one who needs it, giving them the support they need at the time they need it. Not that long ago, a lady was nearly in tears and told our Bible study group that while she was doing dishes, her wedding ring fell down… Read more

There is strength in being filled with joy, and to help you be filled with joy, here is a study on helping you find the joy again. Joyless Christians For some reason, some of the saddest people on the planet may be Christians. I can’t understand why they’ve lost their joy, unless their joy was dependent upon circumstances, and if they lost their joy due to that, then they don’t have that deep, abiding joy found only in the Lord…. Read more

The character and effectiveness of any church is directly related to the quality of its leadership, and humility is a key characteristic. Resisting the Proud Grace is like water…it always seeks the lowest point, and never runs uphill to the high and mighty. Grace also flows toward humility, so God “gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble” (James 4:6). The Apostle Peter tells us to “be subject to the elders. Clothe… Read more

The character and effectiveness of any church is directly related to the quality of its leadership. Qualified Leadership The Bible stresses the importance of qualified church leadership and specific standards for evaluating the moral character of anyone that would serve in the ministry. A church might go only as far as the leadership takes it. Some churches will evangelize while others fossilize, but if there’s a failure to uphold the integrity of church leaders, there’ll be failure in the pews…. Read more

We were created for a very specific purpose, and here are four specific purposes for which God created you. To Glorify God Everything was created for a purpose…including us. The Bible is clear about one of our purposes, and that is that we are to glorify God. For example, if we get into trouble, we are told to “call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me” (Psalm 50:15). The psalmist knew… Read more

The Bible has a lot to say about the poor and what it means to God. ….something we should all do as we’re able. Being Blessed Of course we don’t help the poor just so we’ll receive rewards. We do it because it’s the right thing to do. Most of us have been blessed. Yes, we will receive rewards from the Lord, according to what we’ve done here on earth, but we give because it is the right thing to… Read more

No one knows who started Supreme Sacrifice Day for March 18th, but I’m glad they did so we can pay tribute to all who sacrifice so much to protect, preserve, and save lives. The Son of God If ever there was one, Jesus Christ gave the supreme sacrifice when he died on the cross for us. When the church at Galatia began to drift toward a works-produced salvation, the Apostle Paul asked them, “Who has bewitched you? It was before… Read more
