The Lion’s Lunch

“Be sober, be vigilant; because of your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). If you have ever watched nature documentaries, you have undoubtedly seen a lion hunt and kill an animal out of a herd. It seems quite brutal as we sit in our […]

Don’t Lose Faith

I am sure that we have all had times in our lives where we start a new job or project, and the longer time goes on the more we want to quit. Why did you quit? Was the task too difficult and so you gave up? Maybe the cost was too great, and you decided […]

Twenty Psalms To Read When Life Is Miserable

Making the Psalms a consistent part of our time studying the Bible is enriching and important. Since they are the songs of ancient Israel, the Psalms are meant to be sung and prayed, and there are specific psalms that were written to help us when life is bleak and we feel miserable. The individual and […]

Hardening the Heart

Proverbs 28:14 says, “Happy is the man who is always reverent, But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.” A hardened heart has turned away from God. It is a willful decision and the only way it can be corrected is with a willful decision to turn back to God. A good example […]

Older People and the Lord’s Work

It is reported that Henry W. Longfellow was once asked by an admirer how he continued to maintain the vigor to write so beautifully in the waning years of his life. He turned to an apple tree nearby and said, “That apple tree is very old. I never saw prettier blossoms upon it than it […]

Soul Winning for Jesus

When Paul returned to Ephesus after he had left Aquilla and Priscila there a few months earlier, he found certain disciples that he felt compelled to question. Paul met them and asked, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” They responded, “Nay, we did so much as hear whether the Holy Spirit was […]

Consequences of Unbelief

“For if ye believe not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24). While it is abundantly clear that “faith alone” will not save, it is just as certain that without faith we cannot be saved. What if one refuses to believe? What shall be the consequences of such a decision? […]

“Is the Seed Yet in the Barn?”

It is said that a Christian over an average lifetime will hear 4,000 sermons, participate in 20,000 songs, and be involved in 8,000 prayers in the public assembly. Yet, how many conversions do you think most Christians are responsible for? Very few, if any. Why is that? It might be because our seed is still […]

Doors of Opportunity

There are several open doors mentioned in the New Testament. Paul said that before he came to the Corinthians by way of Macedonia, he would stay in Ephesus, “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries” (1 Corinthians 16:9). In 2 Corinthians 2:12, he proclaimed that he came […]

Understanding Salvation

Where do I stand in my relationship with God? If someone were to ask me, could I give them a clear answer, or would the answer be shrouded in mystery? Sadly, a large majority of people are fully convinced that one cannot know or understand whether God will save them or not. More than that, […]
