Paul’s great theme throughout his writings is being “In Christ.”  In Ephesians alone, that truth is expressed 27 times. My favorite is Eph. 1:6 , where Paul said “to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us In The Beloved.” The phrase “In The Beloved” is only used here […]

Ps. 37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. One of the fiercest enemies we face in our walk are the It-tites. If you notice that in that verse the word “It” is in italics, which means “It” is not supposed to be there. When […]

Alleluia He Is Still Rise. The way we describe our situations in life reveal whether or not we really believe He WINS. “I Believe in the Resurrection, just like I believe on the rising of the sun, not just because I can see it, but because by it I can see everything else.”  C.S. Lewis […]

I’ve come to the conclusion that the one message Christians need to hear is about being Born Again. You might say, but isn’t that the one message Christians don’t need to hear, since if they are a Christian they are already born again. Well, the problem is, many, if not most don’t seem to have […]

Ps.16:11You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. What a great verse! Everybody longs for joy and in this verse we are offered fullness of joy. Nothing in this world offers fullness of joy. We live in a fallen world, […]

1 Corinthians 16:13 Keep alert, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. This is a very instructive verse in these days of learning to walk in faith.  1 John 5:4 tells us that faith is the Victory. Not gives us the victory, but is the victory that overcomes the world. If that is […]

Do we not know that throughout Scripture a chief element of faith in God is a sense of powerlessness and utter helplessness? I want to speak here on the place faith must have if we are to obtain that deep, intense, living vitality which we are longing for. If we are to appropriate the words, […]

Obedience, our gift to God. I’m so grateful for the opportunities that I have everyday to be obedient. I’ve shared lately that in the time I have left on this earth, I want to love Him even more than I need him, and my need for Him is cavernous (as it should be). One of […]

“The just shall live by faith.” Gal. 3:11 These simple words describe to us how the Christian life is lived from man’s perspective. Even though these words are very simple, they seem to be intimidating to most Christians. There have been so many books written about faith, and so many sermons, and teachings given, that […]

Job 42  (NASB) Job’s Confession 1 Then Job answered the Lord and said, 2 “I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. 3 ‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, […]
