Live Daily By Faith

2 Corinthians 5:7

In the message “Proving Our Faith” we saw how our faith is revealed and strengthened as we walk through our trials. It’s not surprising that we often discuss the importance of faith, for “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6). If we desire to live a life pleasing to God, we must […]

Proving Our Faith

1 Peter 1:6-7

We begin our Christian life in faith; “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith” (Ephesians 2:8). And just as we begin our life in faith, so we must also continue to walk in faith; “Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him” (Colossians 2:6). We are […]

The Great Cloud of Witnesses

Hebrews 12:1

In January, 2004, I ran a marathon in Phoenix Arizona. I’ll spare you some of the painful details of running out of energy at the twenty mile point and being passed in the last mile by a 65 year old woman. I learned many lessons that day, but the thing that struck me the most […]

Grace-Filled Holiness

Romans 6:1-2

We often speak of God’s Word as the absolute truth by which we are to live. We encourage one another to live without compromise and not to be pulled by the temptations of the world. But this type of discussion always implies a standard for Christian living; and, as much as we hate to admit […]

Ministering to Nineveh

Jonah 4:2

In the message “Follow Him to Nineveh” we discussed the will of God in terms of His “general” and “specific” will. We saw that God’s Word has already given a great deal of direction which applies to every Child of God. Our Heavenly Father desires each of His Children to be “conformed to the likeness […]

Follow Him To Nineveh

Jonah 1:2

The subject of God’s will is often one of great concern to growing Christians. Those who have accepted the forgiving grace of Jesus now have a desire to live a life which brings Him glory and honor. We have read we are to present ourselves as “living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God” (Romans 12:1), […]

Give From The Heart

Malachi 3:8, 10

In the book of Malachi, God called the people of Israel back to the law He established 800 years earlier with Moses. God spoke of the necessity of a pure sacrifice (Malachi 1:7-8), and the need for the priests to speak a message of truth (Malachi 2:7-8). He also addressed the issue of giving back […]

A Free And Secure Servant

John 13:3-5

The night before Jesus was crucified He was celebrating the Passover meal with His disciples. We traditionally call this the Last Supper. Jesus knew this would be the last time He would eat with His disciples; He knew in just one more day He would be hung on a cross to die. Knowing He only […]
