Do You Still Smile About It?

Sin.  Who has never fallen into it?  Who has never relished it?  Every single one of us has loved sin.  Many still maintain a love-hate relationship with sin. When we came to Christ, there were some sins that were just so hard to forsake.  Some that we had to […]

Predestination and Freewill

Can you believe in one and believe in the other too?  I believe so.  They actually both work together for the glory of God.  One is God’s calling and empowerment, and the other is our choice and will-power.  The Bible says: “And we know that all things work […]

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 […]

Who is Jesus to You?

“When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, whom do men say that I the Son of man am?  And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.  He saith […]

The Devil’s Ministry

The greatest and most effective lie of the Devil is the lie that he doesn’t exist!!!  So many people are comfortable believing this lie, while he continues his ministry in their lives…leading them farther and farther away from the truth.  If you don’t believe he exists, you won’t […]

You don’t love Me? Your Funeral!

Carrying on from yesterday’s musings on unconditional love, I got a few opinions from other believers. One was very interesting. He also believes that God’s love is unconditional, but that the benefits of the love are received on conditions…sort of like a man who loves a woman and […]

Unconditional Love

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8). Do you think that God loves you more than He did when you were still in your sins?  Do you think that He loves you more than those […]

The Devil’s Homeboy

In almost every gangster movie, we watch how the kingpin deals wickedly and how he is followed by a bunch of die-hards who think they are untouchable because they are by his side and do his bidding. There’s always one sidekick, who sucks up to the Bad guy, […]

It Sounds Like Baloney!

Many of us take for granted the simple message of the gospel that we have received and accepted as the TRUTH.  We’ve heard it so many times in Church, read it in so many pamphlets, and maybe even written about it as Facebook messages to our family and friends […]

Meditating on The Cross

Today in Church, I looked upon the Cross and pondered on it. As a symbol of our faith, it stands as a reminder of many fundamental messages from our Lord. In no particular order, let us meditate on the messages of the Cross. Feel free to add more […]
