An Oasis For The Lord

“And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs […]

Are You Witnessing Effectively?

Christian evangelism has entered new waters in this our modern world.  In some ways, it is easier to share your beliefs…with the advancement of technology, particularly the Internet and social media.  And in many ways, it is harder to be received, not least because those who do not […]

The Wisdom of Grace and Truth

The Law of the Lord is flawless; The Sabbath shall be hallowed as holy. The marriage bed is sacred and covenant inviolable; But Wisdom is the principle thing. In all things, may God be glorified… Grace and Truth has revealed to us That the Sabbath was made for […]

Know Yourself, Know His Grace

As early as you can, it is good to know yourself and to know the grace of God.  I can describe my childhood and youthful years as zealous.  I had zeal for a lot of things, but I lacked knowledge of myself or of the grace of God. […]

In My Name

“If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it” (John 14:14). This saying of Jesus is much misunderstood, but it is so simple to comprehend.  Many respond to this message by treating Jesus as a genie who grants wishes, as long as they add […]

A Rude Awakening

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that […]

“I’m an introvert. I don’t talk much. As long as I can remember I have never talked that much. I think there are many things that have lead to this. I don’t like the sound of my voice. I remember being in a group of friends and telling […]

I Don’t Know

Christians are often regarded as “Know-It-All”s by the faithless, because of the confidence we place in the knowledge of God and all things spiritual.  Maybe it could also have something to do with how we seem to have an answer for everything…or how hard it is to get […]

Discipline and Christianity

The first people to be called Christians were first called “disciples” of Jesus Christ (Acts 11:26).  A disciple can be best defined as a student/follower of a Teacher/Leader, who studies a discipline (profession) to gain mastery over it and become equipped to pass on the training to others. […]

Can you love madly and still be Christian?

This seems like a no brainer!  I’m sure many people are thinking, “Why not?”, “Of course!” “What a ridiculous question…”  Perhaps, maybe… I ask this question as a former hopeless romantic, who is now just a romantic at heart.  I know how it feels to be madly in love… […]

Your Sins Are Forgiven

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Do you know that?  Do you believe that?  Like, really, really believe that? Right where you are, right this moment, all […]
