Are You Able

I gave the responsibility of governing Jerusalem to my brother Hanani, along with Hananiah, the commander of the fortress, for he was a faithful man who feared God more than most. Nehemiah 7:2 There are certain people who will take care of a task if you give them one. You can consider it done. You […]

The Afterlife

So we tell others about Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all the wisdom God has given us. We want to present them to God, perfect in their relationship to Christ. Colossians 1:28 There are many strange and incorrect beliefs about the afterlife, and sometimes even Christians adopt some of these views. What we […]

The Strength to Carry On

Hebrews 12:3 Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up. How easily Jesus could have said, “You know what? Forget this. No one here appreciates me. I’m not dying for these losers. They don’t deserve it.” After all, think about what He had to face. […]

Failure is Always an Option

Genesis 12:10 At that time a severe famine struck the land of Canaan, forcing Abram to go down to Egypt, where he lived as a foreigner. Abraham is the father of faith. But he was not always perfect in his faith. God told him to leave his country and his relatives, so he headed to […]

Love is Kind

Romans 2:4 …do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and long-suffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? Just as patience will take anything from others, kindness will give anything to others. God, of course, is our supreme example. You’re a Christian because God’s love won you over. The […]

Where Revival Begins

Jonah 2:7 “When my soul fainted within me, I remembered the Lord; and my prayer went up to You, into Your holy temple.” God told Jonah to go and preach to the people of Nineveh, but Jonah boarded a boat and went in the opposite direction. When a violent storm hit, the sailors cried out […]

Your kingdom come

Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. How can we know the will of God? We find it in the Word of God. The more we read the Bible, the more we’ll understand it, and the more we’ll discover what is God’s will. Jesus said we […]

All in the Family

1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death. J. Vernon McGee once said the only exercise some Christians get is running others down and jumping to conclusions. It saddens me when I see Christians fighting […]

Pride

Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.   An unguarded strength is a double weakness. You are probably aware of certain areas of your life where you are weaker and other areas that you think you have under control. We can be fooled into thinking we don’t need to worry about […]

Make a Stand

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil. The church is under attack today as never before. It’s under attack all around the world. Christians are summarily mocked, marginalized and dismissed as lunatics in the west. […]
